Corporate Gunslinger: A Novel Audiobook

Corporate Gunslinger: A Novel

Author: Doug Engstrom Narrator: Christina Delaine Release Date: June 2020

Doug Engstrom imagines a future all too terrifying—and all too possible—in this eerie, dystopic speculative fiction debut about corporate greed, debt slavery, and gun violence that is as intense and dark as Stephen King’s The Long Walk. Like many Americans in the middle of the 21st century, aspiring actress Kira Clark is in debt. She financed her drama education with loans secured by a “lifetime services contract.” If she defaults, her creditors will control every aspect of her life. Behind on her payments and facing foreclosure, Kira reluctantly accepts a large signing bonus to become a corporate gunfighter for TKC Insurance. After a year of training, she will take her place on the dueling fields that have become the final, lethal stop in the American legal system.  Putting her MFA in acting to work, Kira takes on the persona of a cold, intimidating gunslinger known as “Death’s Angel.” But just as she becomes the most feared gunfighter in TKC’s stable, she’s severely wounded during a duel on live video, shattering her aura of invincibility. A series of devastating setbacks follow, forcing Kira to face the truth about her life and what she’s become.  When the opportunity to fight another professional for a huge purse arises, Kira sees it as a chance to buy a new life . . . or die trying. Structured around a chilling duel, Corporate Gunslinger is a modern satire that forces us to confront the growing inequalities in our society and our penchant for guns and bloodshed, as well as offering a visceral look at where we may be heading—far sooner than we know.

Die for Now Audiobook

Die for Now

Author: Bob Howard Narrator: Graham Halstead Release Date: June 2020

No one can be totally prepared for a zombie apocalypse. No matter what preparations are made, some flaws can only be overcome by luck. When a group of well funded people decided years before to prepare for the end of civilization by building impenetrable shelters, they unknowingly left a legacy for a small band of survivors. Hordes of infected dead have swarmed across the world and destroyed civilization. Most of the world's population is dead, yet some people are determined to cling to life and are given a second chance when they learn the secrets of those shelters. On the coast of South Carolina and in the harbor of the beautiful city of Charleston, this small band of survivors is once more faced with the hard choices and risks they are forced to take. They can either hide in the safety of their impenetrable shelter on a small island, or they can fight back against the end of the world. Along the way they must hang onto their humanity while evolving to match the brutality of the new world. When they discover a massive shelter in Charleston that dwarfs their own shelter on Mud Island, they take one small step closer to giving the world back to the living. This is the continuing story of their fight against the infected dead and against the living who would try to take from them what they have.

Tesla Prime and the Regulus Event Audiobook

Tesla Prime and the Regulus Event

Author: Douglas Equils Narrator: Sean Slater Release Date: June 2020

In “Tesla Prime and the Regulus Event”, a group of seven astronauts embark on a mission to explore the distant and alien world of Proteus. Twenty-seven years later, the crew of Tesla Prime returns to find that the Earth has vanished. The only clues are a cryptic message left behind on the Moon and a ring structure larger than the Earth itself. The woefully unprepared group of scientists and engineers must band together and find a way to save the human race from extinction. With the fate of the world teetering, a last minute replacement rises to become an unwilling anti-hero in Earth’s final hour. At its core, “Tesla Prime” is an intelligent science fiction epic in the same subgenre as “Dune” and “Ender’s Game”. It is a layered character driven novel, with complex and damaged heroes, mystery, betrayal, and a dash of romance. Based on my work at NASA/JPL and lectures I have given as an astronomy professor, I’ve worked hard to make sure the story is grounded in real science and cutting-edge technology. Welcome aboard Tesla Prime!
