Glory to the Dominion (Disgardium-9) by Dan Sugralinov



Disgardium-9
Glory to the Dominion
by Dan Sugralinov


Release - November 4, 2021

Prologue

After reaching the Ruby City, the capital of Belial’s Dominion, I flew too close to the Coal of Hellflame and hit a shield of palladium – a defensive dome around the Great Prince’s residence. That put the Cursed Inquisitors on my trail, led by the demon Dantalian. The same demon who disincarnated me.

And so I had my first death in the Inferno, and the resurrection timer began counting down:

 

Remaining time to respawn 9… 8… 7…

 

I made my peace with Hakkar’s inevitable death while Dantalian was talking to the imp Rofokal, another Cursed Inquisitor who somehow managed to see the particle of Order within me – the thing that gave me my permanent Enemy of the Inferno debuff.

As I hung in the great nothing of post-death, I began to think, trying to figure out what would happen next.

Planet Rhapsodie, Sektor 3 der grauen Zone des Sperrgebiets. Einstufung: Bedingt sicher

Abwurfzone.


DIE RETTUNGSKAPSEL schlug so hart auf dem Boden auf, dass ich für einen Moment das Bewusstsein verlor. Meine inneren Organe schienen ihre Plätze getauscht zu haben. Hey, wenigstens war ich nicht in Stücke gerissen worden. Aber viel hatte nicht gefehlt. Hätte der Motor nur zehn Sekunden früher schlapp gemacht, wäre von mir jetzt nur ein nasser Fleck übrig.

Fantasia by Simon Vale

Fantasia

Second Shot

by Simon Vale

 


Release - June 7, 2021

Chapter 1

 

I swear she was the most beautiful woman in the world. And she was laughing.

“Three huge wet fish,” I said. “I’m not making this up, I swear!”

That laugh! And I was laughing along with her. Not at my own story, which was mediocre, C+ at best. Out of sheer happiness.

The Crow Cycle by Dem Mikhailov

The Crow Cycle
by Dem Mikhailov
Book 1




Release - August 11, 2021


Chapter One

 

            The bright virtual sun hung directly over the great city of Algora, generously pouring light over the roofs of houses, reflecting off of colorful stained-glass windows, and drying out puddles left from yesterday's rain. The rain had evidently been quite heavy. It cleansed the city from dirt and garbage, sending them into the gutters, and thus straight into the deep catacombs of Algora.

The Demonic Games by Dan Sugralinov

Disgardium-7: The Demonic Games

by Dan Sugralinov



Release - May 18, 2021
Pre-order - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08VJK7PY3

Prologue: Malik

Malik always was a joker. He grew up in a large family of immigrants from Marrakesh. His relatives occupied a small living complex in an outer district belonging to a rich countryman of theirs, who gave a discount to his own and didn’t punish them when they needed an extension on the rent.

Malik had so many cousins that they could have easily started their own basketball league.

The head of the family was Grandpa Yusuf, a retired general and decorated veteran whose citizenship privileges provided sustenance for his many descendants. The one-child limit came along only after the citizenship categories were introduced. This meant that Yusuf not only had many children, but also an army of brothers and sisters and the Creator only knew how many cousins. They all followed Malik’s grandpa to the American continent and put down roots. But even once they all had citizenship, the family was always looking for ways to earn money.

Release - May 20, 2021

Pre-order on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08J88Y9VP 



Prologue

 

Offline

If you want to take a look down into a chasm, just look down the barrel of a gun. No, not when you’re busy cleaning it, in breach of all safety regulations, but when it’s clenched firmly in a stranger’s hand, pointing at your... let’s say, at the bridge of your nose.

This was where it was more or less pointing at me.

Inside it was pure darkness; behind it was the blurred silhouette of a man. My gaze failed to focus on the villain himself, so mortally fixated it was on the wrong end of the silencer. Yes, “mortally” was the right word, I assure you.

Pre-order on Amazon - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08NGVGYK1




Chapter 1

 

Operation log:

Hydration – complete.

Assembly – complete.

Resuscitation – complete.

 

Did green letters just flash before my eyes? But my eyes are closed. How am I seeing letters? Words, even...

Assembly? Hydration? What's that supposed to mean? Damn, my head hurts. And my left elbow... and my lower back. It hurts so bad I want to puke. Constant, exhausting pain. Horrible pain. Not like I got hit or something. It's more serious, something chronic... I know it for sure... or do I just feel it?

The Land Beyond Is not the End

Chapter 1

Arriving, Falling, and Getting In

We never managed to found out whether our bald imp had managed to set the wooly mammoth Callowan on fire.

Obviously, a living creature would not have blown up, but the mammoth could have gone off his rocker, making lots of noise and causing us a lot of trouble. On second thought, that might have been for the better. The Land Beyond wasn’t all too welcoming a place; our troubles began as soon as we arrived.

An interview with Alex Bobl - founder of MDB


Alexey Bobl is the man behind Magic Dome Books: a literary agency and publishing house created five years ago. Since then, they’ve released hundreds of books in Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, Polish, Czech and Korean languages. Today, I’m talking to Alex about books, authors and literary agents, about the differences in markets all over the world, about net literature braving the pandemic this year and its survival strategies for the coming year.

 Can you tell me how MDB came about?

In actual fact, it all started when I became literary producer at EKSMO, Russia’s biggest publishing house. It was my job to compile and produce new science fiction and fantasy series. At some point, I read a new novel by Andrei Livadny. I remember telling him, “This book just begs to be translated!” And he said, “Okay, go ahead, then.” And I remember telling the same thing to Vasily Mahanenko. At the time, I didn’t have a clear-cut idea of a future publishing business yet. Still, I decided to give it a go. I was curious and enthusiastic, and that seemed to motivate me a lot. Everything happened so fast. Before I got involved with EKSMO, I used to be a writer. So being a writer, I knew what a writer needed, and being a producer, I knew a publisher’s needs. And finally, when I was ready to combine these two things, MDB was born.

In Place of a Prologue

 

It may sound trite, but every bad story has to start someplace: a point of origin or a zero hour — call it what you like — but after it everything goes up in flames and plummets to the coldest climes of hell for a smoke break with the devil.

So if I’m going to tell this story in an orderly manner, then I had better start with my death…

“Listen to me, you’ve got to surrender peacefully!” Goha’s voice again hissed over the radio. “Why cause a shootout? You’ll just terrorize the townspeople.”

“Come off it,” I responded lazily, tinkering with the settings of an old laptop, its screen displaying a low-res feed from the exterior cameras. “Why don’t you just go ahead and offer to whack me for free, like, for ‘resisting arrest’ or something? Nah. I’m not about to make your life that much simpler.”

“Nobody is going to knock you off…”

The Range: Lords of the Ruins by Yuri Ulengov


The Range, book 2

Lords of the Ruins

by Yuri Ulengov



Release - May 14, 2021


Chapter 1.

Earth Federation, Orion System. Rhapsody, Sector 3 of the Gray Zone—designated safe zone of the Range. The ruins, near the Green Zone.

It took us about 24 hours to reach the Green Zone borders—we had to make a stop to take care of Margot and take a desperately-needed rest. By the time I caught up with my friends, I was on a brink of collapse. Diss’ condition was no better. On top of being severely exhausted, I was also withdrawing from the stimulants, heroically fighting occasional bouts of nausea, dizziness and weakness. I knew I could power through, of course, in the most extreme case if needed. But that wasn’t the case. We intentionally avoided busy routes, found a dilapidated house with an intact basement, locked ourselves in it and fell asleep, breaking all the rules, not even bothering to have someone keep watch. Screw it. No one was following us—we checked, and the probability of running into someone random in this area was very low.

Kurze Zusammenfassung von Buch 1 und 2


Planet Erde, 2074-2075

AUF UNSEREM PLANETEN leben derzeit 20 Milliarden Menschen.

Das UN-Bildungsministerium verlangt von jedem Teenager zwischen 14 und 16 Jahren, täglich eine Stunde in Disgardium zu verbringen. Nachdem Alex Sheppard beim Erstellen seines Charakters einen Fehler gemacht hat, der zu Problemen beim Leveln führt, verliert er schnell das Interesse am Spiel.

Reality Benders-7: Cause for War by Michael Atamanov


Reality Benders-7: Cause for War
by Michael Atamanov




Release - March 19, 2021

Introduction. Horde Conference

 

The Vaare Star System, Meleyephatian space

Gas giant satellite Vaare I-III, Horde space docks

Mobile communication center

 

 

The huge spherical room which had previously served as a construction hangar for the Horde's large landing ships had been hurriedly refit as a long-distance communication center for hosting an emergency fleet conference. That was because the preexisting communication points on every military base or large starship couldn’t be used due to security concerns voiced by Meleyephatian analysts. Their formidable adversary had already shown that they could quickly trace signals to their source and send starship strike groups there to destroy the Meleyephatian Horde's command centers. In an effort to avoid unnecessary loss of starships and personnel, military engineers had refit a structure at the orbital docks of the uninhabited Vaare system as a communications center in record time. Meanwhile, another group of military specialists had anchored a large number of gravity mines in nearby space because they had proven most effective against the adversary's small starships in comparison to thermonuclear munitions or antimatter charges.
