Way back in 2001, I wrote a short story about a stage hypnotist and his alien companion animal. It was only supposed to be a one-shot. Oops. Since then, I have returned to those same characters time and again, creating more stories, novellas, and novels, detailing their adventures and expanding their universe with a plethora of alien races.

You’d think that would have been enough, but no. Those books gave way to a spinoff, developing a minor character and giving her a series of her own. Enough already right? Nope. A year later, the first book of a second spinoff series appeared.

CONROYVERSE is a sampler, consisting of the first novels in each of these three series set in the same fictional universe. It also includes “Buffalo Dogs,” the short story that started it all. Here’s what you get:

BUFFALITO DESTINY (The Amazing Conroy)
Cleaning up Earth’s worst toxic waste site with omnivorous buffalitos seemed like a good plan, until ecoterrorists target the Amazing Conroy, stage-hypnotist-turned-CEO. Meanwhile, a tour bus of aliens is trying to convince him to embrace a mysterious purpose amidst ancient Mayan ruins.Now the fate of the Earth hangs on a single decision.Conroy will need all his hypnotic skills, the support of his best friend, and insight from his dead aunt, if he is to save himself, the buffalitos, and the planet. And just maybe, along the way, he’ll find his true destiny.

ACE OF CORPSES (Freelance Courier)
Angela “Gel” Colson is not your typical Human teenager. She’s left her adopted father and siblings behind, scrounged enough cash to purchase a derelict spaceship, and started her own courier business taking jobs no one else wants. All that may be true, but it’s not the real story. Gel only appears to be Human. She’s actually a mutant variant from a race of teleporting aliens who have hidden in plain sight for millennia. They don’t believe she can keep their secret. If she doesn’t convince them otherwise, they’ll resolve the problem by putting her to death!

SLICE OF ENTROPY (Pizza in Space)
Melody Wilder just needs to complete her dissertation and life will be perfect. Alas, that’s not going to happen. She hasn’t picked a topic yet, her undergraduate loans have been “un-forgiven” with a vengeance, the university is about to strip her of her stipend, her job, and her apartment, and a pirate-priest minotaur is systematically destroying all her hopes and dreams. Meanwhile, alien bear cub physicists are trying to extradite her best friend on charges of violating the laws of conservation of matter every time he makes a pizza! And things are just getting started.

For a limited time, from January 15th thru 21st, you can pick up the CONROYVERSE ebook for just 99¢ (or 99p in the UK) exclusively on Amazon (or FREE in KU).

In these times of global pandemics, weather disasters, and political stupidity, this is the kind of light, fun, escapist SF we all need!
