In Rip-Off!, 13 of today’s best and most honored writers of speculative fiction face a challenge even they would be hard-pressed to conceive: Pick your favorite opening line from a classic piece of fiction (or even non-fiction) - then use it as the first sentence of an entirely original short story.

Thirty-nine-year-old Joanne accidentally meets Alex, a 16-year-old stud who gradually coalesces with her family. This wouldn't ordinarily be a problem except Joanne feels vulnerable to Alex's charms since her husband has been away for months. Throw in Joanne's 14-year-old daughter, who falls for Alex immediately, and you got a recipe for disaster.

i enjoyed the story and liked the narrator's voice. There are not many authors that write taboo topics that aren't completely negative so I found this refreshing.

I gave it 3 stars because while I liked the narrator's voice she could have done better. i agree with another review that it was bit stiff and may have taken away from the story.

In The Dragon Factory, Ledger and his team from the Department of Military Sciences square off against two separate groups of corrupt scientists.

Their father, who takes evil to an entirely new level, is using cutting-edge science to complete the Nazi master-race program.

With their house in peril, Merit and her Master, the centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances.
