MJ-12: INCEPTION in hardcover and an ARC of MJ-12: SHADOWS, both signed by Michael J. Martinez

Item Name and Description:

If you like your Cold War spies with superpowers, these books are for you. MJ-12: Inception tells the story of a group of average Americans suddenly imbued with extraordinary abilities — and recruited to fight on behalf of the mysterious MAJESTIC-12 project on behalf of America during the Cold War. From Berlin to Istanbul, from Area 51 to Prague, these so-called “Variants” must stymie agents of the Soviet Union — agents who may possess their own fearsome powers.

The story continues in MJ-12: Shadows (due out in September). The Variants must go to Syria to keep the Soviets from gaining easy access to the Mediterranean, as well a key oil pipeline. In addition, the sudden death of a key MAJESTIC-12 figure casts the shadow of suspicion over all Variants. Can they clear their names before the Soviets orchestrate their own masterstroke?

MJ-12: Inception is in hardcover, while the ARC of MJ-12: Shadows is in paperback. Both signed by Michael J. Martinez.

Starting Bid: $25

Item Name and Description: a signed set of Lila Bowen’s WAKE OF VULTURES and CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS, the first two books in the Shadow series — plus swag! — donated by Orbit.

WAKE OF VULTURES:

Nettie Lonesome dreams of a greater life than toiling as a slave in the sandy desert. But when a stranger attacks her, Nettie wins more than the fight.

Now she’s got friends, a good horse, and a better gun. But if she can’t kill the thing haunting her nightmares and stealing children across the prairie, she’ll lose it all — and never find out what happened to her real family.

CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS:

Nettie Lonesome made a leap — not knowing what she’d become. But now her destiny as the Shadow is calling.

A powerful alchemist is leaving a trail of dead across the prairie. And Nettie must face the ultimate challenge: side with her friends and the badge on her chest or take off alone on a dangerous mission that is pulling her inexorably toward the fight of her life.

When it comes to monsters and men, the world isn’t black and white. What good are two wings and a gun when your enemy can command a conspiracy of ravens?

Starting Bid: $10.

Shippingto the United States and Canada only, because of publishing rights.
