"Things are not always what they seem"
Ben Porter has been running in all directions, searching for the perfect career path. So far, he’s found nothing but dead ends. He has high hopes for his new job as office manager for a non-profit anti-porn group. It’s headed by Franklin Abbott, an old-money Boston Brahman seeking redemption for his family’s past sins, and Margaret O’Leary, a widow from Southie who is indignant about almost everything. Ben’s excitement leads to dismay when he learns the organization is seriously in the red. Apparently, fighting slime no longer pays in Boston. With Ben’s help, this unlikely trio comes up with a scheme they hope will rekindle their bottom line by “fighting fire with fire.” It’s foolproof – unless they get caught.
Revisit Boston in the 1980s in this slightly naughty-but-nice fable, in which things are not always what they seem. You never know what might get “Banned in Boston.”
With aliens or angels? Or a ground hog?
Bleak despair? Martial fervor? Or a belly laugh?
Whatever the Apocalypse. It will be borne by people and their families and their dogs and most of all, it will challange their notions of themselves.
The best selling “Alternative” series continues with the unique look at the Apocalypse, brought to you in the sometimes serious, sometimes funny, but always quality you’ve come to expect from B Cubed Press.
This book contains stories from writers in seven countries.
They range from the wildly popular blogger Jim Wright. In this book Jim publishes his first short fiction, The Deserter. A war that brings the hosts of heaven to earth as you’ve never imagined them before.
But wait, there is more. Mike Resnick, one of the most widely read science fiction masters of the 20th and 21st century brings his vision of the final play in an alien invasion, as he brings you to know the The Dog.
From Greece, we have Christine Lucas, a retired Airforce Officer, from Nigeria, Ugonna-Ora Owoh, recipient of a 2018 Young Romantics/Keats Shelley prize, a 2019 Erbacce Prize and winner of the 2019 Stephen A Dibiase International poetry prize.
The writers have multiple and varied backgrounds, Henry Gasko, author of Living in the Gleam of an Unsheathed Sword, was born in a displaced persons camp in Yugoslavia after World War Two, raised on a vegetable farm in Canada, and is now living in Australia (international law prohibits publishing an Apocalypse Anthology without at least one Australian).
The list also includes writers from New Zealand, the UK, Canada, USA, Texas to name a few. A book worth buying.
Just remember—one sitting, one read! Others are waiting!
“For the bathroom, for the bedroom, for the bus to work, for that chair in the department store where bored spouses sit while their wives or husbands try on new clothes… this is a perfect way to entertain yourself during idle moments in a way that won’t rot your mind. Read this and have fun.” —Allen Steele on SF for the Throne

In 1935, Elsa Lanchester married the monster.
And now, Daniel M. Kimmel updates the myth, and tells us the tale from the point of view of the most important character: the Father of the Bride of Frankenstein.
This is not Ms. Shelley’s monster, but (dare we say it?) a dazzling urbanite, literate and thoughtful… and Jewish?
Science has always outrun the guidelines of ethics. It’s not unthinkable that interspecies relationships will be the next big question. And with those relationships will come a father’s love for his daughter, and that father’s fears for his bankbook when his doting daughter plans the most outrageous of weddings.
Making your daughter happy can be a wild ride when her fiancé is being called subhuman, sued because of his very existence, and trying to keep a good Jewish home.
Also includes the bonus, rarely seen short story “Cinema Purgatorio.”
Film critic and award-winning author Daniel M. Kimmel is the author of the Hugo-finalist non-fiction volume Jar Jar Binks Must Die… and Other Observations about Science Fiction Movies, and the novels Shh! It’s a Secret: a novel about Aliens, Hollywood, and the Bartender’s Guide, and Time On My Hands: My Misadventures In Time Travel. He is the winner of the 2018 Skylark Award (formally known as the Edward E. Smith Memorial Award for Imaginative Fiction), which is given by the New England Science Fiction Association for lifetime contributions to science fiction.
We brought the idea to a crowd-funding site, which interested enough people to provide the seed funding to turn this anthology into reality. We took that springboard, and gave eighteen talented authors the task of writing a great story with only one guideline: the story had to include the phrase “Release the Virgins.”
The results are surprisingly varied and creative: science fiction, fantasy, outright comedy, serious imaginings… in this anthology, you’ll find Manhattan gangsters, sad superheroes, marathon-running aliens, teenage Cthulhu worshippers, ghost dinosaurs, computer hackers, and even a unicorn or two. And we think you’ll agree: it’s a good thing that phrase stuck in our minds.
Featuring stories by: Nebula, Hugo, and Stoker Award-winner David Gerrold; Hugo Award-winners Allen M. Steele and Lawrence Watt-Evans; IAMTW Grandmaster Keith R.A. DeCandido; Skylark Award-winners Daniel M. Kimmel, Sharon Lee, and Steve Miller; WSFA Small Press Award-winner Alex Shvartsman; and Matt Becthel, Shariann Lewitt, Gordon Linzner, Gail Z. Martin, Jody Lynn Nye, Beth W. Patterson, Hildy Silverman, Patrick Thomas, Cecilia Tan, and Brian Trent.
“Release the Virgins is a hoot of an anthology! Fun, weird, and wildly entertaining!” —Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Deep Silence and V-Wars
"Life asked Death, 'Why do people love me, but hate you?'
Death responded, 'Because you are a beautiful lie, and I am a painful truth.'"
An Anthology of Short Fiction Contemplating the Complex Relationship Between Life and Death.
Most believe that Life promises light, bliss, and wonder. Death scares most with its shadow of mortality, darkness, and destruction. But what if those may be, if not lies, just facets of the complicated entities that bookend our existence? Life does not mock Death, but feeds it. Death is not the cessation of Life, but an alteration of existence. What would you do if faced with either truth?
An international galley of authors brings us a second repast of tales featuring the complex relationship between Life, Death, and humanity. From the supernatural to the sublime, these writers, both novitiates and accomplished, serve up a banquet of speculative fiction across a wide spectrum of genres. Beautiful Lies, Painful Truths Volume II will continue to feed your craving for the fantastic.

Thirteen contemporary authors—including Narrelle M. Harris and Jody Lynn Nye—riff on the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes in this imaginative anthology.
In the first Baker Street Irregulars anthology, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s brilliant and beloved character appeared as a hologram, a parrot with great deductive skill, and on a reality show. Now in this second edition, thirteen more authors offer their own highly original takes on the mystery genre’s greatest crime solver.
In Keith DeCandido’s “Six Red Dragons,” Sherlock is a young girl in modern New York City. In Sarah Stegall’s “Papyrus,” Sherlock is a female librarian in ancient Egypt. In Daniel M. Kimmel’s “A Scandal in Chelm,” Sherlock is a rabbi. Derek Beebe sends Sherlock to the moon, while Mike Strauss casts him as a comic book character.
The settings of these stories range from a grade school classroom to an alien spaceship. While preserving the timeless charm and intrigue of Sherlock Holmes, these authors pen stories of the world’s greatest detective as you’ve never seen him before.
What if Adam and Eve weren't a metaphor? What destroyed the Atlantis of the Sands? Was Stalin one of the undead? Stories of fantasy and science fiction await you. Explore the alternate history beyond Victorian England. Go beyond steampunk.

“Fast paced, with interesting characters, humor, and of course, some movie references (this is Daniel Kimmel, after all).” —Michael A. Ventrella, author of Bloodsuckers and the Arch Enemies series
First there was Jar Jar Binks Must Die, the Hugo-Award finalist collection of essays discussing science fiction film which Analog called “intelligent and entertaining” and F&SF called “terrific.” Then came Shh! It’s a Secret, the comedy science fiction novel that Publishers Weekly called “a freewheeling, laugh-out-loud satire.” Now Daniel M. Kimmel is back with Time On My Hands, his quirky take on time travel, lost love, divided loyalties, and the eternal search for really good scotch.
Time On My Hands investigates the myriad time travel troubles over which most science fiction readers have pondered, but it presents a fresh take on the time travel novel by adhering to the Aristotelian Unity of Time: it all takes place within a single day.
In the book, Professor Price tells the story of how he came to be in possession of a time travel device (which he may or may not have invented), and how he found his future hiding in his past. But the discovery of time travel will necessitate far more than just building a really cool machine: it’ll take the efforts of many people to figure out how to talk about time travel, the requirements necessary to be an ethical time traveler, and just whose office it is when my yesterday becomes your tomorrow without the courtesy of a knock on the door.
Film critic and professor Daniel M. Kimmel has taught film and media classes at Emerson College, Boston University, and Suffolk University. His book on the history of FOX TV, The Fourth Network, received the Cable Center Book Award. His other books include a history of DreamWorks, The Dream Team, and I’ll Have What She’s Having: Behind the Scenes of the Great Romantic Comedies. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Rochester (where much of Time On My Hands is set) and his law degree from Boston University.
“A sweet shaggy-dog tale of philosophy and paradox in which it’s never too late for true love or redemption, even if you’re a time traveler.” —LJ Cohen, author of the Halcyone Space series
