  • Speculative fiction, sci-fi and fantasy

  • Social issues

  • Science, history, and technology

We are enthusiastic about back list titles.

Audible, iTunes, Amazon,, Rakuten Kobo, Walmart, Google, Overdrive, Hoopla, Downpour, Storytel, Findaway, and others. Unlimited streaming channels used strategically.
