Mother Asphodel
a Christmas Novella by
Edward C. Patterson




"Clothes don't make the queen. The queen makes the queen."

It's Santa Saturday in New Hope, Pennsylvania and Mother Asphodel is trudging through the snow to a gig at the Phoenix Club - her drag queen couture bundled in a shopping cart - her bony feet stuffed into galoshes. At seventy-seven plus, Mother has seen the glory days and, in the course of this evening, she'll share those memories with a younger queen, Brooks MacDonald (a.k.a. Simone DeFleurry of The Jade Owl fame). Listen to these stylish dames as they plan Mother's return into the spotlight, to shine once again in the eyes of the community and peers.

Mother Asphodel, a novella, bubbles with the secrets of a raging entertainer, who has rubbed elbows with the famous. Still, time knows no friends and Mother cleaves to life's ornery path on a bleak wintry evening when hope is as sparse as bread crumbs thrown to the birds. The possibilities are endless on the road least taken - a kaleidoscope glimpsed only by those who take it.

"I was just rambling, dear - reflecting on the word gay. Just when did they give us that name?"
"I think we took it when no one was looking."

    Riley Flynn and the Runaway Fairy is free today (12/12). If you like strong heroines and also fairies, you might enjoy it.



    Riley Flynn loved books. She just never expected to find herself trapped inside one.

    Years ago, her great-grandfather had written a series of fantasy novels about a world called Alora. They'd been full of magic, mystical creatures, and adventures. Riley thought they were just about the best books in the world.

    On her eleventh birthday Riley received a mysterious gift: a set of notebooks containing the handwritten first draft of her great-grandfather's first novel. The odd thing was, nobody knew who had sent them to her. Riley's great-grandfather had vanished many years earlier under circumstances that had never been explained. His notebooks hadn't been seen since.

    And while the old notebooks might have seemed harmless enough, they contained a power Riley could never have believed was possible. Now she finds herself trapped in Alora, the land of her great-grandfather's stories, with a lonely fairy as her only companion. Her only chance to get back to her own world lies in freeing the greatest wizard Alora has ever seen from a magical prison, all while being hunted by an evil queen who will stop at nothing to find her and claim the fairy's magic as her own.

    Byron is a husband, a seminarian, a sandwich maker, a Moon-landing enthusiast, and a liar. For eight years, he's hidden a dark past threatening to drag him into insanity. He uses an obsession with the Apollo Moon landings and his religion to avoid a confrontation with that past, but it's beginning to overwhelm him. He needs something stronger. And then, as if by providence, he is invited to play a tabletop fantasy game. The fantasy allows him to step into another world and live as Brodo, a Hobbit who is better equipped to fight demons of depression and suicide.

    Of Gods & Dragons is literary fiction, employing subtle symbolism and fantasy elements to tell the story of a man who only wants to live another day. It deals with sexual abuse, mental illness, racism, gender issues, philosophy, evolution, religion, and anti-theism. It is written to make the reader laugh, cry, and think along with Byron as he struggles against himself and either the higher power that put him here, or the black specter of oblivion haunting all men.

    Charles Habakkuk, writing at the crossroads of mental illness and faith in Indiana and Chicago.

    Free this week: APOCALYPTICON - http://www.amazon.com/Apocalypticon-Clayton-Smith-ebook/dp/B00IRPTRHW/
    Genre: Post-Apocalyptic Adventure Comedy Horror



    "Clayton Smith has written a wacky novel about the end of the world...[he] can definitely write. His dialogue is snappy, his powers of description are terrific, and he has plenty of imagination." - Windy City Reviews

    "Equal parts Mad Max and Monty Python...one hilarious, harrowing and heart-wrenching tale." - Stephen Luna, Author of the Joe Vampire series.


    Three years have passed since the Jamaicans caused the apocalypse, and things in post-Armageddon Chicago have settled into a new kind of normal. Unfortunately, that "normal" includes collapsing skyscrapers, bands of bloodthirsty maniacs, and a dwindling cache of survival supplies. After watching his family, friends, and most of the non-sadistic elements of society crumble around him, Patrick decides it's time to cross one last item off his bucket list.

    Hes going to Disney World.

    This hilarious, heartfelt, gut-wrenching odyssey through post-apocalyptic America is a pilgrimage peppered with peril, as fellow survivors Patrick and Ben encounter a slew of odd characters, from zombie politicians and deranged survivalists to a milky-eyed oracle who doesn't have a lot of good news. Plus, it looks like Patrick may be hiding the real reason for their mission to the Magic Kingdom...

    FREE Kindle download for only four days! "May a Christian Believe in Reincarnation?" at http://amzn.com/B00OM8A4NE

    Quote
    "You might find the history of this study interesting and amusing.

    Quite some time ago we became very good friends with an Eastern Orthodox archpriest who not only believed in reincarnation, but had engaged for years in research into methods of past-life recall.

    One afternoon he phoned and told me that several guests were coming from an Orthodox seminary to visit him and he planned to bring up the compatibility of reincarnation with Christianity. The reason for his call was to ask if the monks and I could research the subject of reincarnation in early Christianity to give him material to prove that Christians could believe in reincarnation.

    Certainly we would! For the next few days several of us went through our library and finally reported back to our friend that we had a lot of material for him to use.

    Then he revealed to us that what brought this on was the discovery of a small boy in our state that remembered being his own uncle! And the priest had been asked by the local television station to comment on this at the end of their broadcast of the story.

    Were we ever excited. An Eastern Orthodox priest advocating reincarnation on television! So we delivered the material and awaited the broadcast.

    The segment on the boy was very well done and very believable. Then suddenly there on the screen we saw our priest friend in full vestments standing at the front of his church. This was it!

    No, it wasnt.

    He began a tirade (no other word for it) about how Christians cannot believe in reincarnation and how incompatible the belief is with Christianity.

    For us, the bottom dropped out.

    But when life hands you lemons, make lemonade, so I just worked all that researched material into a small book I named May a Christian Believe in Reincarnation?"

    Trapped in a dark cult, sixteen-year-old Naomi Aren has lived a quiet, albeit unhappy, life nestled deep in the hills of the Ozarks. With uncut hair, denim skirts, and only roses for friends, Naomi seldom questions why her life is different from other kids at school. Until the day her abusive father, who is also the cult's leader, announces her wedding. Naomi must marry Dwayne Yerdin, a bully who reeks of sweat and manure and is the only one person who scares her worse than her father.

    Then she meets Kai, the mysterious boy who brings her exotic new roses and stolen midnight kisses. Kisses that bring her a supernatural strength she never knew she had. As the big day approaches, Naomi unearths more secrets of about her father's cult. She learns she has power of her own and while Kai may have awakened that power, Naomi must find a way to use it to escape Dwayne and her father--without destroying herself.

    Swan Cloud
    by
    Edward C. Patterson

    Book III in the Southern Swallow series


    What one reader says:

    "the author skillfully weaves an intriguing plot that holds the reader to the page, needing to find out what happens next. There came a point deep in the novel where I literally couldn't put it down until I finished the last page." - A. Chin

    -----------------------------------------------

    We were like Swan Clouds, or so my master Li Kai-men said, because for ten years we drifted from place to place city to city one temporary capital after another. Ten years has passed since The Nan Tu, Book II of the Southern Swallow series. The Sung court and government has settled at the great city of Lin-an and peace is sought with the invading Jurchen. The stage is set for one of the most infamous incidents in Chinese history, known as The Yueh Fei Affair an intrigue, which casts our adventurers into the perils of the times.

    Book III of the Southern Swallow series Swan Cloud, like its predecessors (The Academician and The Nan Tu) is told by Ku Ko-ling, servant to the Grand Tutor, Li Kai-men, who must forgo his obligated mourning period and set out on a diplomatic mission for the Emperor Kao a mission fraught with political intrigue and treachery. Set on the broad canvas of Sung Dynasty China (12th Century), Swan Cloud is a tale of separation and sacrifice injustice and intrigue. It represents a turning point in this saga for our hero and his band of spiritual warriors.

    The Twinning of Vincent Cassidy
    by
    Edward C. Patterson

    A Novelette


    What one reader says:

    "The author, Edward C. Patterson, is a consummate story teller. His words paint pictures for all the senses. His humor is woven into the telling. The surprise in the story was completely unexpected." - L. D.

    -------------------------------------------------

    From the dim, dark reaches under the overpass, sits a man with a story a tale hell tell to anyone who will listen. His name Vincent Cassidy. His occupation well, hell tell you himself. His fall from grace a strange encounter in a mirror and his own misguided curiosity. From the pinnacle to the pit, come listen to his tale.

    The Twinning of Vincent Cassidy is a short fiction piece meant to tantalize you for an evening unless you decide to read it twice, in which case, be prepared to double the experience and magnify the outcome.

    [To mark my return to activity after recovering from a nasty fall, my book The Lust of Comrade Lu will be free for downloading from its Amazon site from Friday, December 19, to Sunday. December 21 (three days).

    The Lust of Comrade Lu is very relevant to current developments in Hong Kong. However, while it focuses on Hong Kong-China relations, it is mostly about a woman who loses the love of the man she adores, is pursued by a man she reviles and dies in a shocking and bizarre manner. It unfolds against the backdrop of six decades of a changing political relationship between Hong Kong and China.
    The fictional characters of The Lust of Comrade Lu first come together as members of a guerrilla group fighting the Japanese in Southern China during World War Two. A young communists cadres uncontrollable desire for a girl, who is a fellow member of the group, leads to a sequence of events in rural Guangzhou, Shanghai and Hong Kong over a period of several decades, culminating in him being accused of three horrendous crimes. Today, the former cadre, Wang Sanwu, is a senior Chinese Communist figure, who poses a threat to Hong Kongs freedoms with a plan to abrogate its special status. But the allegation that he is guilty of horrendous crimes has raised the possibility that, if proven, they could sink his plan for the former British colony. A retired journalist heard the accusation from a sick friend, who died before he could provide details. The journalist, Simon Crerar, seeks the help of a former Hong Kong police officer, Mark Evans, to uncover the alleged offences. Marks investigation focuses on relatively recent events but he believes the seeds of the Chinese officials obsession with Hong Kong and, perhaps, his alleged criminal acts lies in the past.

    <b>Book Description</b>:

    This story is a present-day twist on the biblical story of Jacob and his mother Rebecca plotting together against the elderly father Isaac, who is lying on his deathbed, in order to get their hands on the inheritance, and on the power in the family. This is no old fairy tale. Its power is here and now, in each one of us.

    Listening to Yankle telling his take on events, we understand the bitter rivalry between him and his brother. We become intimately engaged with every detail of the plot, and every shade of emotion in these flawed, yet fascinating characters. He yearns to become his fathers favorite son, seeing only one way open to him, to get that which he wants: deceit

    What if my father would touch me, asks Yankle. In planning his deception, it is not love for his father, nor respect for his age that drives his hesitationrather, it is the fear to be found out.

    And socovering his arm with the hide of a kid, pretending to be that which he is nothe is now ready for the last moment he is going to have with his father.
