Against Time

USA Today bestselling writer Dean Wesley Smith returns with a second novel to the world of Dust and Kisses from the first issue of Smith’s Monthly.

Paleontologist Callie Sheridan spent a few days deep in the Oregon Caves on a dig with three students from the University of Oregon. When she emerged, they found almost everyone in the world dead. Survival now became her only thought.

Mathematician and galactic explorer Vardas Fisher dropped into orbit over a planet where almost all of the human life had been recently killed for no obvious reason. Suddenly hundreds of other ships, all human, appear in orbit and start working to save the remaining population of the planet.

Together, Callie and Fisher work to discover the secrets of a galaxy that have been hidden in plain sight, even from the powerful humans who had rescued millions. And in the process, they just might change everything.

The agent likes his job until the day comes along that he meets one of the wives of the garbage he needs to send to the curb. And everything changes, but only in a way Dean Wesley Smith can imagine.

The Case of the Pleasant Hills Murder

Now he introduces us for the first time to Retired-Detective Lott and the rest of the retired Las Vegas detectives who play poker, solve cold cases, and call themselves the Cold Poker Gang.

They solve cases every week, but this case becomes very personal for Retired-Detective Lott. More so than any cold case he and the Gang ever tackled before. And as with most cold cases, solutions do not come easy. And answers tend not to be what anyone hoped.

Out of Coffee Experience

In “Out of Coffee Experience,” an artist works in a moment of time to set up a perfect piece of art.

Just hope you are not in his next work of art. But, of course, how would any of us ever know if someone from the future thought of us as nothing more than props?
