Part District 9, part Lost in Translation, part Stranger in a Strange Land, Triptych was nominated for two Lambda Literary Awards and named one of Publisher’s Weekly’s Best Books of the Year. Triptych is a poignant, character-driven science-fiction story about tolerance, love, loss, and a desperate attempt to find connection in a world that no longer makes sense.
City by Night
by J.M. Frey
Award-winning science fiction author J.M. Frey writes a loving satire of the film industry, vampire-cop television, and what it really means to be a "fan." This is a story about Mary, the number one fan of the hottest cult vampire detective TV show, City by Night...until she gets sucked into the world of the show.
Hero is a Four Letter Word
by J.M. Frey
Good and Evil. Two sides of the same coin? Or something less defined? J.M. Frey’s three stories explore the grey area of hero vs. villain. Funny and irreverent, "The Once And Now-ish King" finds King Arthur reborn. "Just A Four Letter Word" follows Jennet, descendant of mythic lovers. In "The Maddening Science", a former supervillain is forced to return to a life of crime to save his stalker.
