SciFi News

Taldra: Science Fiction Adventures is now available in two new paperback editions, featuring a new cover.

The Taldra novels focus on gay relationships, people of color, and powerful women.

In an alternate reality, Earth is Valchondria. The one-world government consists of Leader, the Supreme Science Council, and a police force called “the Maintainers.”

Degranon: A Science Fiction Adventure introduces the Iroquois scientist Taldra. One of her twin gay sons becomes trapped on the other side of a time portal while the other loses himself to the religious cult Degranon. Can they find their way back to each other before the Degrans destroy Valchondria?

In Sons of Taldra: A Science Fiction Adventure, alien shapeshifters and the secrets of the Maintainers threaten humanity. Taldra’s twin sons and their boyfriends rally to her side, along with a lesbian Maintainer. First published in 2016 as an eBook, Sons of Taldra now appears in this collection with a revised edition of Degranon.
