The Traveller
by Garrett Addison

Award winning, unique, roller-coaster of a story!

Sometimes to get the measure of your life you just need a break from being yourself.

Enter the world of an unnamed family man struggling in his pursuit of a work/life balance. Too much travel at the whims of his tyrannical boss, known variously as Stalin and ‘the Anti-Christ’, has left him failing at work and at home, but after his wife prophetically warns that his next trip will be different, he is suddenly a world apart from his usual self. Confident, capable and unafraid of his manager, opportunities abound as he embraces his altered state away from home.

What begins as a quest to reclaim his career and satisfy his ego soon descends into the pursuit for revenge on his boss. With nothing but success in his wake and seemingly limitless potential at his disposal, it’s only fitting when he is coerced to work with his nemesis in a remote corner of the world. It’s more than just a chance to get even after years of abuse, more than the opportunity for a confrontation; a final solution to what he sees as the bane of his life is on offer. What could possibly go wrong when he’s in his prime? Succeed or fail, either way this trip will be the making of him or the end of him.

Sometimes to get the measure of your life you just need a break from being yourself... because nothing lasts forever.

Sign of the Dragon
by
Neil Low

Description1940--Seattle--The eve of WWII. Imperial Japan threatens to conquer Asia and the entire Pacific Theater. Despite anit-war protests and Congressional intervention, critical supplies and support are flowing into Japan from America's West Coast ports, including shipments of scrap iron and steel from Seattle's trolley lines, enabling Japan to make its war machines to expand and tighten its grip on Asia. Because it can be used to make munitions, brass becomes the most coveted metal of all. Alan Stewart teams with Tiger Lee, a sexy American operative on a mission to disrupt the spy network led by the White Dragon, a dangerous Japanese samurai whose movements are shrouded in mystery. What begins as a hunt for justice quickly turns into a maelstrom of revenge and a race against the clock as politics become personal and loyalties are tested from every side.
