Can-Con in September

If you’re an SF reader, writer, editor, fan, comic book lover, etc., come to Canada’s Capital Can-Con this September. Can-Con is the Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature and is happening in Ottawa over the 21-23 September weekend. Lots of cool guests and panels. If you’ve never been to an SF Con, this is the place to start. It’s small enough not to be intimidating, but it’s full of dedicated, enthusiastic people who love every form of Speculative Arts and Literature. Check out the website regularly at http://can-con.org, and “like” the FB page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/canconsf/

The Newest Jack Meter Novel is here!

Meter Parents, the newest in the Jack Meter Case Files  SF Mystery series, is now out and is available in Trade Paperback and ebook for Kindle and Nook.

Jack is suddenly stuck with babies. But are they really babies, or an expendable tool for someone else’s revenge?

Jack Meter’s hard-won peace is about to be shattered again. Two fugitives have descended on his apartment and are demanding help. They’re Phoenixes, a species that start as babies in the morning, age through the day and vanish after sunset, only to be reborn the next day.

Then there’s the Kayzar. The aliens want the Phoenixes back and are willing to kill anyone to recapture them, including Jack.

The Phoenixes’ story doesn’t ring true to Jack, but what’s a PI to do when his home is invaded, his friends feel sorry for the refugees, and he has a dead Kayzar stinking up his apartment?

The family is the test of freedom; because the family is the only thing that the free man makes for himself and by himself.— G. K. Chesterton

Read a sample.

“Jack Meter stays smart, sexy, and darkly funny—despite a new crop of aliens messing with his life. M.D. Benoit’s fast-paced and unique blend of science fiction and hardboiled detective will keep fans of both genres eagerly turning pages!” –Sherry D. Ramsey, editor of The Speculative Elements series
