Sci-Fi from the Rock

The original Sci-Fi from the Rock went out of print last month at the sixth annual Sci-Fi on the Rock convention, where it had begun its journey only two years before. Sales reports for the title were impressive, with nearly 200 patrons walking out with the title in their bags. Despite this, Engen founder Matthew LeDrew has elected not to reprint the title, at least not in physical form.

“It’s a matter of logistics. Things have changed since our more to the international market, and this book isn’t going to make the transition unfortunately,” said LeDrew.

Add that to the fact that the rights to one of the stories, Time Diamond, has since been sold to the multimedia company Hann Made Productions, and the possibility of future physical printings of the title seem slim.

But fear not, Sci-Fi lovers! The remaining two stories are available on the Engen WebStore as digital media, as Engen finally makes the transition into eBooks!

Copies of Legacy of the Full Moon (Steve Lake) and Woven by the Thief (Melanie Collins) have been made available in PDF, EPUB and MOBI formats, each for the amazingly low price of 99 cents each!

The stores may also be purchased together under the original Sci-Fi from the Rock title for only $1.50.

According to LeDrew, this is just the first of many stories to reach the eMarket.

“We’re going to be adding more, with all of our shorts eventually available as separate downloads for all the cats who just want a taste before diving right in: a practice I wholly respect. Right now all the files are made in-house, but starting with the still-not-revealed August release from Engen we’re going to be releasing digital editions alongside the physical editions,” LeDrew said via his blog on March 29, 2012.

Here’s what other people had to say about the stories:

“[Steve Lake’s] visit to the age-old conflict between vampires and werewolves is a good one, but too brief. I hope [he] will take this tale and develop it, hone it and publish a larger work with this story as an integral part.”
The Telegram

“Lake has the makings of a winning formula in the palm of his hand.”
Jay Paulin, Ink’d Well Comics

“Melanie Collins was the last book to read and I wasn’t disappointed. Melanie Collins has a wonderful way with words. Reading the stories makes me want to write again.”
Jeremy Bulloch, Boba Fett

“Melanie Collins’ Woven by the Thief is flowery, delicate – yet layered – fantasy that depicts the nighttime relationship between dreamer and dream-taker.”
Jay Paulin, Ink’d Well Comics

“I personally like and approve of [this].”
John Robert Colombo, Colombo & Company.
