New LitRPG - Level Up: The Knockout



Level Up: The Knockout
by Dan Sugralinov and Max Lagno




Release - January 9, 2019



Chapter One. The Hallucination.

 

I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow in the knee.
Skyrim


EVEN THOUGH Mike Björnstad Hagen was partly of Scandinavian extraction, he resembled a Viking roughly the same way a Chihuahua resembles a Great Dane. He had a variety of nicknames such as "Crybaby Mikey," "Little Mikey," "Mikey the Wimp," or even "Hey, you cocksucker!" No one has ever referred to him as "Mr. Hagen."
The only time it almost happened was during a visit to a bank Mike visited once in hope of getting a mortgage loan. The man behind the counter told him, "I'm so sorry, Mr. Hagen, but your loan request has not been approved," said the man behind the counter without so much as trying to refrain from grinning smugly. Mike would have smashed his face gladly if he only knew how to fight.
A home . . . A dream of a home of his own, one he could share with little Jessie, was all that kept him going for three years. Then Jessica deserted him for a trucker thug from Arizona— or was it Texas? At that point, it didn't really matter anymore.
What did matter, however, was that Hagen dated no one for the following five years, and the reason certainly wasn't his pining for Jessica—there was none. It was just that no one ever found him interesting enough, including Sheila, a glum Goth girl covered in tattoos from the shop across the road. The shop sold comics, and Hagen would frequent it to buy fresh issues of Rat Queens and Extremity.

El DIablo by G. Zotov



El Diablo
A supernatural thriller
by G. Zotov



Release - December 26, 2018


Prologue

Lima, capital of the Republic of Peru
October 14 1931

THE OLD TELEPHONE rattled, jumping up and down on the bedside table. Miguel groped for it, then swatted it like a fly with a blow of his hand.
Contrary to his expectations, the phone didn’t shut up. It continued to annoy him with its repeated buzzing which sounded like a snoring man having rust poured down his throat.
Miguel struggled to rub his eyes. What was going on, dammit? He reached out in the dark, feeling for the receiver, and brought it blindly to his ear. “Speaking.”

Level Up: Hero by Dan Sugralinov




Level Up, Book 2
Hero
by Dan Sugralinov




Release - December 10, 2018


Prologue

“OKAY, I’LL PUT it in a different way. How did you kill them?”
“There was this little boy... he suffocated. It just happened! Then there was a girl... she just died too... bled to death...”
The sound of a gunshot almost deafens me. A bullet to the shoulder throws the corrupt government official onto his back. My ears ringing, I can barely hear Vicky cuss under her breath as she flings the gun aside,
“Bastard, bastard, bastard! How I hate them!”
“Holy crap, Vick, what have you just done!”
Gleb Grechkin, a prominent figure in the Town Hall’s Cultural Department, is squirming on the floor, apparently not in a hurry to croak. His wound isn’t life-threatening and his Vitality is still in the green as a Bleed debuff ticks away, stripping the pedophile of his Health.

The Bard from Barliona 2




The Bard from Barliona - 2
A Song of Shadow




release - November 19


Chapter One


Re-entering Barliona turned out harder than I imagined. My fingers trembled as they reached for the capsule’s sensors. My memory unkindly resurrected the terrible agony I’d experienced during the changing of my race. It wasn’t right. Who came up with the idea of torturing players like that? Or was it supposed to be a particular ‘perk’ of switching to the dark side? A tacit punishment for choosing the faction of the gameworld’s villains? And if so, what would I face later?
As soon as I got into the capsule, the first thing I did was carefully review the sensory filter settings. Everything was as before—a pain threshold of 10%. After a couple seconds’ hesitation, I turned this down to five percent. Realism is good and all, but I think I’ve had enough. More than enough.

History of the Galaxy - 3: Servobattalion




History of the Galaxy, Book 3
Servobattalion
by Andrei Livadny




Release - October 22

Didn't read the series? Start with Book 1


Prologue


22 August 2627 Earth Years. 
Hammer's Line.
 
The sultry, overcast midday on Vesuvius was lit up by a multitude of eruptions.
The air was unbreathable, poisoned by the volcanic emissions, and the sky, like a gray sheet, hung low and reflected the crimson of the fiery chaos below.
The world laid out below the oppressive sky appeared unfit for human life but the war had changed many of the suitability criteria.
Vesuvius was not just colonized but densely populated with the industrial bases of the Terran Alliance located here, which repaired the technology damaged in the fighting. Through an anomaly in space, damaged spaceships were towed from sites of battle into orbit around the planet, and were then brought down to the surface using special technical carriers. There were also plenty of transports carrying broken servomachines, with some to be repaired and some intended for disassembly into spare parts.

Kräutersammler der Finsternis: Der Videospieltester (LitRPG)



Kräutersammler der Finsternis - 1

Der Videospieltester

Ein Roman von Michael Atamanov






Release - September 12, 2018

Der Videospieltester


„HABEN SIE schon einmal Reich ohne Grenzen gespielt?“, eröffnete der HR-Mitarbeiter mittleren Alters das Vorstellungsgespräch mit ausgerechnet der Frage, die ich am meisten gefürchtet hatte.
Laut Stellenanzeige musste ich unbedingt eine Anforderung erfüllen: Ich durfte das Spiel noch nie gespielt haben. Wenn ich die Frage mit „ja“ beantwortete, würde das Gespräch vermutlich so schnell beendet sein wie es begonnen hatte.
„Spielen Sie irgendwelche anderen bekannten Spiele, äh … Timothy?“, fragte er, nachdem er meinen Namen auf dem Bildschirm vor sich gelesen hatte. Er schien einen langen Tag hinter sich zu haben und war bestimmt müde.
„Ja, natürlich. Ich bin seit ungefähr sechs Jahren ein Gamer. Ich habe ziemlich lange Königreiche der Schwerter und Magie gespielt.“
„Gamer“, murmelte er geringschätzig und runzelte die Stirn. Der umgangssprachliche Ausdruck schien ihm nicht zu gefallen. „Und wie haben Sie sich im Spiel unserer Konkurrenz geschlagen? Haben Sie besondere Leistungen erbracht, Timothy?“
