Titles By Gustavo Bondoni
As long as the United States Constitution stood as a symbol of liberty and justice, worldwide authoritarians could never rest easy. The innate Human yearning to be free would forever threaten the iron heels under which they crushed their own people. Fueled by hatred of all that America stood for, the gathering of enemies who conspired to destroy her unwittingly unleashed a wave of worldwide destruction that engulfed their own nations. When America collapsed, most of the world crumbled with her.
In Europe, Asia, South America and Africa, invasion followed invasion, war followed war, leaving a broken world of ruin to those who are Standing Fast On Foreign Shores.
“Contains some real gems.” -Publishers Weekly
“Thoughtful and compelling.” -Stony Brook Press
A haunted father who discovers a place where incomplete things—and people—are made whole. A mischievous satyr who hatches a plan to set loose chaos on a global scale. A workaholic witch in search of her kitty companion. Invasive technology to rewrite the human brain. Dragon slayers. Zombies. Time travelers. Ice skaters.
These twenty short stories stretch across multiple universes and beyond death—and yet, they remain intimate, personal, emotional. They demonstrate the strength of the human spirit to find hope and seek a better tomorrow in even the darkest times.
A selection of the best speculative fiction from DreamForge and Space & Time literary magazines, these are the stories we need today as we struggle through a pandemic, divisive politics, rampant misinformation, a belligerent defiance of facts and science, and new technologies that are already spiraling beyond our control.
Read, my friends… and take hope.

A master tactician and the only man who knows how to effectively apply Etruscan black magic on the battlefield, General Velthur Leinie is the only man standing between his people and subjugation.
But the Romans are implacable and Velthur retreats, abandoning city after agonizing city.
His only choice is to ask the Etruscan lords of the underworld, Manus and Mania, for their help.
Velthur won’t know the price until after they’ve agreed to help... but surrender is unthinkable.
When the base suddenly goes off air, no one is unduly concerned. Antarctic communications have always been patchy. Then strange creatures are sighted in the surrounding seas and the crew are suddenly thrown into savage battle against prehistoric monsters and the brutal elements.
Can anyone survive Ice Station Death?
Vengeful undead. Demons. Hungry rats. These creatures and more haunt city streets, unlit hallways, deep space, and the corners of your imagination in Re-Terrify.
Send shivers down your spine with 18 horrifying tales from an international roster of authors.
Featuring fiction from Douglas Smith, Nancy Springer, James Dorr, Winston Marks, Lisa Lepovetsky, Eric Choi, Darrell Schweitzer, Meriah Crawford, Jonathan Shipley, Gregory L. Norris, Vonnie Winslow Crist, Greg Chamberlain, Kelly A. Harmon, David Hoenig, Steven R. Southard, Nicole Kurtz, Geoff Gander, and Gustavo Bondoni.
Re-Terrify reminds readers that monsters hide in the shadows and even the bravest person should beware of the dark.
Max Alexeyev is part of a secret military group formed to strike at the heart of the monster problem: the labs that are churning them out. Melanie Viña is an active duty US Marine sniper out for revenge. They meet in Africa and join forces to locate and destroy the largest of the labs.
What they don’t know is that the people producing the monsters already know they’re coming, and have prepared a special surprise for anyone who attacks their installations.
Do Max and Melanie have what it takes to pull off a successful Desert Base Strike?
The answers to these and many other rhetorical questions lie within these pages.
Nineteen tales take the undead to their limits. From the distant past to the far-flung future, and to all corners of the Earth, the undead are eternal and everywhere: symbiotes, parasites, monster mash-ups and ghoulish grins, bleak tales of inescapable dread, an ancient evil from a far-away land with unspeakable dietary needs, a boy and his…well, it’s not a dog. History is brought to (un)life. Ghosts, specters, phantoms and haunts of every sort. Not-so-easily-classifiable stories that do new things with the basic premise of what’s alive, what’s dead, and what’s neither.
And yes, you lovers of all things zombie—fear-not, for your favorite flesh eaters are here but, thankfully, not exactly as you would expect them.
Undead & Unbound celebrates all things from beyond the grave, the different, and no matter how old the bones, new life can always be found.
Selected and edited by Brian M. Sammons annd David Conyers. Cover art by Paul Mudie. 288 pages.
