Stand-Alone Collection by Award-Winning Geoff Nelder

Stand-Alone Books

Incremental by Geoff Nelder.

25 Tales Of Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Speculative, and Bizarre Fiction

These twenty-five tales from Geoff Nelder have increment as a theme. INCREMENT:

Noun-an increase or addition, especially one of a series on a fixed scale. Synonyms: increase, addition, gain, augmentation, step up, supplement, addendum, adjunct, accretion, boost, enhancement. Verb-cause a discrete increase in. Mathematically the difference can be negative-decremental.

For example, a pothole doubles in size every day, a meteorite hits the same house daily at the same time, or a heavy leather-bound book on the top shelf teeters closer to toppling at each library visit. A sound is heard all over the Earth, but more worrying, it gets louder each day. A couple of astronauts’ crash land on an ocean planet (apparently) and incrementally sink.

A few stories are more mental than incremental, you’ll see.

Some of the stories have won awards and have been published before, but most of the wordage is new and drawn together for a common theme. I do not apologize for the mix of genres in this collection. I write as the muse takes me and only afterwards am, I asked, is it hard SF, bizarre, horror? You have a smorgasbord of fantasy, science fiction and speculative in your hands.

“Some of these stories are more mental than incremental – all wonderful.” By Limnisa Writers’ Retreat, Greece.

‘A feast of Kafka-esque incremental tales, to be ‘literally’ devoured one after the other… by Mark Iles author of the Pride of Lions #1 best-selling sci fi book.

Vengeance Island follows the fate of a sixteenth century abducted family, and of two contemporary lovers thrown together by the ancients. Reece and Zita are unaware that one descends from the pirates, the other from the abducted family. While ancient Gozo spirits seek revenge, so do the Ottoman Corsairs, who intend to roll back history, and this time win the siege of Malta.

The history is real. The places are authentic. The tension and excitement are palpable.

“I liked it. There’s a foreground of interesting characters combined with a skillfully fed-in hint of weirdness.” Jaine Fenn – Hidden Empire series

Hot Air by Geoff Nelder.

Erica is a nine-to-five office temp with flaming red hair, emerald eyes, and black lipstick. The highlights of her day usually include coffee meetings and intoxicated fumblings. An adventurer at heart, she hires a hot-air balloon ride for she and her boyfriend, complete with a champagne lunch.

While in the air, she witnesses an unsavory crime happening on the ground below. The perpetrators spot the balloon, and begin shooting at it, hitting the pilot and killing him. Somehow, Erica and Paul manage to land the balloon but their troubles are not over. They are tracked down and abducted by a gang engaged in human trafficking, and taken to an island in the Mediterranean. Erica soon adapts to gangland ways and uses her charms to escape. Along the way, her life shifts from bored office temp to a feisty Lara Croft now living on adrenaline and dangerous men. She is chased by a rogue named Dean, who is annoyed by Erica but falling for her at the same time.

Hot Air is a contemporary crime novel and a winner of both the Wuacademia Silver Award in 2007 and Prix d’Or (Gold) 2008 for best unpublished novel.
