Bio-punk. Weird literature. A sci-fi fantasy that is frighteningly real. Split Second Solution is a dystopian urban novel set in New York City in 2022 that predicted the rise of Trump (the Ginger Tom) and anticipates his fall.
Here's a review:
"From the opening scene I felt I was reading something like a Miyazaki masterpiece. The descriptions are so vivid that only his genius talent for animation could capture them. Just as Howl's Moving Castle takes you on a journey with both darkness and light, here there is palpable evil and fragile heroism in non-clichéd plot twists and turns. Required reading for our times."
At the beginning of Split, the Sick Reapers and A.I. have seized power and captured Word. To escape being raped and killed, Word jumps into the Hudson River and Death splits the last second of her life to save her. And, it is in the last split second of Word's life that the entire story is told.

How much do you remember about your early childhood?
Beth Anne Evans remembers the fish nibbling at her legs in the swimming hole, the brown eyes of the calf at the farm up the road, and the scent of her mother's perfume... But she has other memories too, like the roar of the car engine after bedtime, the heat of the flames when her father's store burned down, and the pallor of her sister's face after the VW bus went off the road...
Set in rural America in the 1970s, this fictionalised memoir beautifully observes and recreates an early childhood lived in the shadow of outsized adulthoods. Sometimes the darkness of Beth Anne's story threatens to overwhelm her -- like that evening when even the fireflies desert her -- but the light always returns, whether as the sun setting over Cape Cod or the Fourth of July fireworks exploding above a Vermont field.

But as the fierce little female awakens, he finds she's anything but grateful, and his dragon instincts roar to life to warn she might be more to him than an enemy -- she might be his fated female.

It wasn't the speed the car was going, but the road they were on which had triggered his response. Market Street starts at the top of Twin Peaks and quickly winds downhill exactly two miles to Castro Street. The lanes are narrow with six sharp curves built around the steep hills that make up Twin Peaks. To compound the problem was parked cars protrude into the right-hand lane given any more opportunity for disaster. The road was barely navigable at thirty five miles an hour, let alone the death defining sixty five Rachelle was going, and Dan knew they were both going to die. It was two in the morning on a deadly quiet Sunday, and there was not a soul on the street as Rachelle flew down the darkened road.

"Morgan has written a book that is highly original and beautifully executed. The balance between the Roman world and the modern world is maintained with skill and adroitness, and the narrative is deftly woven through both of these time periods, never faltering or losing momentum.
The Last Stoic is a fascinating, parallel look at two societies who are not, as it turns out, as different or distinct as one might think."
- Helen Humphreys
** Long-listed for the 2012 ReLit Award for Fiction.**
The Last Stoic is a story of appetite and fear, both modern and ancient. Half of the story's narrative occurs in the time and place of the ancient Roman Empire; the other half occurs in the present-day United States. The parallels between the two eras are so strong that the narrative continues uninterrupted as the setting shifts from historic Rome to modern America, alternating from chapter to chapter.
Marcus, a young man from a northern provincial border town, journeys deep into the heart of ...

Mr. Poe would like a word with you.
It is fairly well known that Edgar Allan Poe died a long time ago. What is not so well
known is what he was doing just before his tragic death on October 7th, 1849.
And Poe Said is a fictional depiction of Edgar Allan Poe's last days. But it is
much more than that. There is the matter of his lost short story "Mr. Dormir's Last Request."
There is a tumultuous Baltimore election with enough fraud in it to fill all the frog bellies
in every swamp in old merry Maryland. It has history, poetry and literary merit and, most important of
all, a personal message for you - from Mr. Poe. He wants you to know that... well, I'm not
going to spoil it for you.
My New Year's resolution was to start exercising.

Max, the tall, gorgeous spin instructor with a quick wit and sarcastic smile. He finds new ways to raise my pulse and make me sweat--and only some of them take place on a spin machine.
Brody, the handsome gym member with crystal-blue eyes and a body covered with lean muscle, flirts with me every time we cross paths. But we're competing against each other in the gym's quarterly points contest, and he has discovered a scintillating new way of distracting me...

Instead, her emotionally reminiscent trip becomes crowded with the two Sebring women, a grief counselor, and the massive role Callie assumes. She must speak for Jack in order to protect his four-year old grandson Chad from his stubbornly manipulative and blame-passing grandmother and his recently widowed and power-usurping mother. Callie understands both women grieve the loss of Chad's father. He ...
This is a collection of short stories with an Indian connection. Many are set in India, but it is also about the diaspora. They events happen mostly in the present or in the recent past, but Majunga, a story set in the Malagasy Republic includes the true story of the auction of a ship in the early twentieth century. The story about the invention of the pressure cooker is set in an unspecified past, when India was ruled by Mughal Emperors. Kokilakshi is a revised version of The Ticking Clock, which appeared on Create Space a few years ago. The title, Samosas And Ale inspired by Mr Somerset Maugham's Cakes & Ales (which itself came from Shakespeare) might suggest that these are all cheerful and happy tales, but there are also stories of abuse, abduction and the dishonourable practice which is called, without irony, honour-killing. Many of the themes will be recognised by Indian readers, but will intrigue others. Sibling rivalry is universal, but it does not always spring from the same ...

Scientists have found a 250-year solar cycle that also appears to affect epidemics, famines, warfare and more.

Eager to escape her greedy grandmother's plans to marry her off, Hannah Frank accepts an offer from the odd Mr. Jones to travel west as a mail order bride. Her own sister, Beth, had done the same thing a few years ago, but Hannah had never heard news of her. Still, an unknown future with a strange man is better than certain misery under her grandmother's rule.
Soon, Hannah is married to Victor Bates, a kind and handsome man with a baby daughter. And though she is pleased to find that her husband is a good man, Hannah realizes he is also keeping a secret from her; a secret that makes it hard for her to give her heart fully. Can she find a way to break past his pain -- a pain he has kept locked away?
Sometimes, fate has a way of guiding our paths, and leading us to answers we seek.
