Tides of Maritinia
Maritinia is a planet with little economic value, and they've just rebelled, believing that the Empire will not care. But the Empire believes that if an insignificant planet can revolt, then more important planets might follow suit. Jakob, a raw imperial recruit with only his political officer - a separate consciousness inserted into his brain - to speak with, is out of his element as an operative. Sent to infiltrate the rebellion and sow discord, Jakob begins to question everything: the despotic admiral in charge of the coup, his feelings for a native woman - and whether he still agrees with the Empire.

Welcome to Midnight, Texas, a town with many boarded-up windows and few full-time inhabitants, located at the crossing of Witch Light Road and Davy Road. There's a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There's a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there's new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he's found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own). Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth.

Former Miami cop Andrew Yancy has a human arm in his freezer.

Rise of the Spider Goddess
Before Jig the goblin, before fairy tale princesses and magic librarians and fire-spiders, there was Nakor the Purple, an elf who wanted nothing more than to stand around watching lovingly overdescribed sunrises with his pet owl Flame (who might actually be a falcon, depending on which chapter you're reading) in this tale, written in 1995 and never before shared with the world (for reasons that will soon be painfully clear). Together with an angsty vampire, a pair of pixies, and a feisty young thief, Nakor must find a way to stop an Ancient Evil before she destroys the world. With more than 5000 words of bonus annotation and smart-ass commentary by the author, this is a book that proves every author had to start somewhere - and most of the time, that place wasn't very pretty.
