The Hidden Institute

reviews EBook


Rising above your station can be deadly.

Cliffy is a child born on the streets of a Neo-Victorian world. Witnesses to a murder, he blackmails a nobleman, receiving a unique bribe. In exchange for his silence, the nobleman introduces him to the Malcolm Rutherford Holden Institute of Regentrification. There, Cliffy learns to walk, talk, and act like a nobleman, so that he may infiltrate high society. But that type of fraud is punishable by death, and when Cliffy uncovers a plot to assassinate a head of state, he’s hunted by more than just the aristocracy.

Royal intrigue, daring escapes, sub-dermal machines, and bear polo. A grand adventure in a not-so-distant world.

Discount Miracles

reviews EBook

The crew of the space salvage ship JN3-0518 have crash-landed on a planet that was colonized hundreds of years earlier, and has lapsed into a suspicious and superstitious dark age. With their advanced technical knowledge, the crew makes a living by faking miracles. Kings and clergy hire them to make ancient prophecies come true. But when they are tasked with making a prince ascend into light and power, they find themselves cast as kidnappers and witches.

Discount Miracles is a slipstream story of sci-fi and fantasy that lightly treads the edges of Clarke’s Third Law. Hoverbikes and giant monsters come together in a story that is a little comedy, a little romance, and a lot of adventure.

The Danny

reviews EBook
A short story collection by Brand Gamblin. The Danny is unstuck, bouncing between dimensions and viewing “cusps” of powerful moments and decisions in other’s lives. The Danny remembers being human once, and searches through other worlds, looking for the way home. Along the way, it encounters zombies, time travelers, nanites, alien invasion, mechanized infantry, and magical heroes.

The Danny is a collection of seven short stories, some previously published in Flagship magazine. Others have never been seen before. There are stories of high fantasy and low, as well as hardcore and contemporary sci-fi. The perfect book for short shots of intense storytelling.

Give the Devil his Due

The devil offered Michael the perfect deal. Fame, fortune, everything he ever wanted, and with no strings attached. The ironclad, simple contract spelled it out. Riches and fame, with a get-out-of-Hell free card. How could it possibly go wrong?

‘Give the Devil his Due” is an original twist on the classic Faustian contract which ties in with a very real modern threat.

Included with this original short story are two of my bestselling shorts, “Worse than the Disease”, a fresh look at the morality of surviving a zombie outbreak, and “Snake Skin”, a modern powered-armor adventure.
