I’m thrilled to not only announce the release of two short story bundles, but also a two week sale on Dangerous Jade after its win at the Ursa Major Awards at Anthrocon 2013! Dangerous Jade is available at 50% off ($3.99!) from the brand new BadDogBooks e-book store until the 26th of July.

And while you’re there for Dangerous Jade, why not get the two new e-book only short story bundles, both priced at $2.99? The bundles both contain brand new stories alongside material that’s previously appeared in print with Sofawolf Press’s Heat and New Fables magazines. Both are set in San Iadras, the same setting as Dangerous Jade, and the first bundle deals with the grief and guys Jade’s clone sisters encounter in their lives. The second bundle follows a very different, militant group of clones.

You can check out Dangerous Jade, the first bundle — Jane, Jill and Jasie — and the second bundle — War Dog and Marginalized Populations — on BadDogBooks here, here, and here!

Full details on both bundles below, along with more links to places you can get them!

Three short stories by Malcolm Cross

Being the beautiful, exotic girl is supposed to be a bed of roses, but this bed is lined with thorns. In these three short pieces of erotica about a sisterhood of furry clones from the city of San Iadras, discover just what it means when your beauty isn’t your own, but something you were designed to have.

Dick and Jane: Jane’s got it all — a good job, great looks, and the best boyfriend in the whole wide world. Of course she was made that way, genetically engineered in a lab and designed to be beautiful. But as for her boyfriend, Richard? Jane’s about to find out more than she ever wanted to about her relationship with him.
(~8000 words)

Jill’s Forty-Ninth: After forty-eight one night stands, Jill’s got her routine down to perfection. Some guys aren’t into furries, but she can set those aside and find the exact prey she’s hunting for: Men with enough money to turn her weekends into heaven. But her forty-ninth doesn’t go to plan. Dell, an awkwardly charming and affluent furry, wants a relationship. Jill wants her fiftieth. And neither wants to compromise.
(~8000 words)

Jasie’s New Start: Jasie never had it all. In fact, it felt like everyone around her made sure she never had a thing. They accused her of being a failure, that her relationships were superficial and her heart hollow. They said things worse than that, but she doesn’t have to put up with it anymore. No, she’s going to leave it all behind, and get things right this time. She’s going to have her new start, and nobody can stop her.

War Dog and Marginalized Populations
Two short stories by Malcolm Cross

You can’t take the human element out of war, but try telling that to the corporate thinktank that handed guns to gengineered attack dogs. In these two SF short stories from the world of San Iadras, find out what happens when the cloned supersoldiers of the future are emancipated, integrated into society, and treated like human beings — whether they like it or not.

War Dog: Eschowitz Estian, a genetically engineered dog-soldier, is unleashed on the world… but he’s only seven years old. Martial training is abruptly replaced with family life when he’s freed and emancipated, but being expected to act like a normal child isn’t something his training has prepared him for. In a world where he can become anyone except the soldier he was born to be, growing up and finding his place will be a war, but not the one he was designed for.
(~15 000 words)

Marginalized Populations: Scheuen Estian’s adoptive parents always called him ‘Shaun’, because they couldn’t fit his real name into their lives. They couldn’t fit his real nature into their lives, either. But he can make a place for himself, in the society of his clone brethren, and in societies broken by repression rocked by a crowdfunded civil war that need him to be exactly what he was made to be: a soldier.

War Dog and Marginalized Populations is available from BadDogBooks in multiple formats (ePub, Mobi, PDF), on Kindle from Amazon (US)(UK), and for various other e-readers at Smashwords.
