“JOHN M. WHALEN’S THIS RAY GUN FOR HIRE… and Other Tales.”
This collection of short stories includes five sci-fi noir tales featuring 22nd Century troubleshooter Frank Carson. You got a job so dirty and dangerous nobody else will touch it? Get Carson.
In “Forever Eden,” Carson is hired to stop a mad scientist who has taken over a space lab so he can clone human slaves.
“Tuqamari” tells the story of a dying oil magnate who hires Carson to negotiate an amnesty with the leader of indigents who’ve been fighting to get their lands back.
A wealthy industrialist hires Carson to deliver a ransom in an extremely unusual way in “Alexander the Great.”
Also included are four other tales set in the Tulon Universe, the same setting Whalen used in his full-length novel, THE BIG SHUTDOWN.
“The stories in this collection take place about 100 years before the events in the novel,” according to the author. “In a way, this book is a prequel to THE BIG SHUTDOWN.”
Exciting Sci-fi action and noir intrigue! “JOHN M. WHALEN’S THIS RAY GUN FOR HIRE . . . and Other Tales.”
Available in paperback and Kindle from Amazon.
