Welcome to another book promo/ author spotlight on Lipsyy Lost & Found.
Today I’m spotlighting a renowned author of Science Fiction who is currently re-releasing not one, but nine classic titles – some for the first time in ten years!
Sci-Fi fans who may have missed John E. Stith’s work the first time round are bound to love his unique take on the genre – well-researched, ‘hard’ science fiction which sticks closely to the laws of science and have been praised by Science Fiction Chronicle for being ‘full of wondrous situations and and marvellous discoveries’.
Three of his chosen novels, Deep Quarry, Manhattan Transfer and Reunion on Neverend (details below) have already been re-released so far this year, with one more, Redshift Rendevouz due exactly a week today (check back here next week for more info!).
The fourth book to be re-released, Memory Blank, will be with us in December with a further three titles expected next year.
July 1st 2016
Ben Takent is a private eye on a hot, dusty world at the edge of the civilized galaxy. When he’s asked to find out who is stealing artifacts from a 10,000-year-old archaeological dig in the desert, he reluctantly takes the case.
Then, when it becomes clear that the artifacts are pointing to an ancient alien spacecraft, the stakes in the case go up—way up.

August 1st 2016
When aliens abduct New York City, carrying it into space inside a huge dome, the citizens trapped inside must find out why and what they can do to save themselves and dozens of other cities which aliens have stolen from other planets.
A stunning tour-de-force of science fiction and storytelling with gripping action, believable characters and a plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
One of the better surprise endings to come down the cosmos in light-years.” — Chicago Tribune
Reunion on Neverend
October 1st 2016
Lan has come home to a high-school reunion in the underground colony of Neverend, at the edge of humanity’s reach. An ancient secret waits there, one involving instantaneous access to far-flung planets.
Also in Neverend is his high-school sweetheart, Tessa, who is in the way of people who have stumbled onto this ancient technology and plan to use it for their own purposes.
Fortunately for her, Lan is no longer the boy he used to be. And fortunately for Lan, Tessa is no longer the girl she used to be.
“One part mystery, one part other worlds adventure… thoroughly entertaining joyride.” — Science Fiction Chronicle
