Arabella Grimsbro Versus the “Wonderful” Wizard by Matt Youngmark, L. Baum
Arabella Grimsbro is a 15-year-old girl with a mouth like a dock worker and an attitude to match. When she walks into Voyages Through Literature – a cheesy mall store promising virtual reality tours of public domain classics – the last thing she expects is to be whisked away to an actual magical world.
To make things worse, this Oz is very different from the one she saw in a movie when she was little. Ferocious beasts with grizzly bear bodies and tiger heads? A town of creepy, porcelain dolls? The Tin Woodsman lying broken and battered at the bottom of a ditch?
Arabella will need more than surliness and silver slippers to find the answers at the end of this rainbow – or even just survive the trip.
Editor’s note: profanity, for real! Arabella Grimsbro curses like a longshoreman. If you are considering purchasing this book for a child, please be aware that, among other obscenities, it features some variant of the word “f–k” 87 times. Eighty-eight, if you include the editor’s note.

Justice Calling: The Twenty-Sided Sorceress, Book 1 by Annie Bellet
Gamer. Nerd. Sorceress.
Jade Crow lives a quiet life running her comic book and game store in Wylde, Idaho. After twenty-five years fleeing from a powerful sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her powers, quiet suits her just fine. Surrounded by friends who are even less human than she is, Jade figures she’s finally safe.
As long as she doesn’t use her magic.
When dark powers threaten her friends’ lives, a sexy shape-shifter enforcer shows up. He’s the shifter world’s judge, jury, and executioner rolled into one, and he thinks Jade is to blame. To clear her name, save her friends, and stop the villain, she’ll have to use her wits… and her sorceress powers.
Except Jade knows that as soon as she does, a far deadlier nemesis awaits.
Justice Calling is the first book in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series. Readers who enjoyed The Dresden Files or The Iron Druid Chronicles will likely enjoy this series.
Murder of Crows: The Twenty-Sided Sorceress, Book 2 by Annie Bellet
They say you can never go home again. If only that were true…
Game store owner and nerd sorceress extraordinaire Jade Crow knows death stalks her in the form of her murderous ex-lover, Samir, a sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her power. With the help of her friends, and sexy tiger-shifter Alek, Jade trains for the inevitable confrontation.
Until her estranged father shows up begging for help. Someone or something is murdering the crow shifters of Three Feathers ranch and her father believes sorcery is the only way to stop the killings. Faced with an unknown foe, a family that exiled her decades before, a deepening relationship with Alek, and Samir’s ever-present threat, Jade will need all the power she’s gained and then some to stop the Murder of Crows.

Pack of Lies: The Twenty-Sided Sorceress, Book 3 by Annie Bellet
Let sleeping dogs lie. Wolves, on the other hand…
Recovering from a broken heart and coming to terms with her family history, all sorceress Jade Crow wants is to resume running her comic book store and gaming with her friends. With a town full of strange wolf shifters, a 150-year-old peace accord hanging in the balance, and the justice who broke her heart back in her life, Jade’s plans go out the proverbial window.
Wolves are killing wolves, innocent human lives are caught in the crossfire, and not everyone in town is who they appear to be. As the bodies stack up and the doubts build, Jade and her friends race to find the true killer. And then Jade’s evil ex-lover makes another move….
Pack of Lies is the third book in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.
Hunting Season: The Twenty-Sided Sorceress, Book 4 by Annie Bellet

Hunting Season is the fourth book in The Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.
Heartache: The Twenty-Sided Sorceress, Book 5 by Annie Bellet
“Life-changing moments are sneaky little bastards. Often we don’t even know that nothing will be the same until long after, only in hindsight can we look and say ‘There! That was it! That changed everything.’ At least we could, if we’re alive to do it.”
Gamer and sorceress Jade Crow’s psychotic ex-boyfriend, Samir, shows up for an epic showdown, and nothing in Wylde will ever be the same.
Heartache is the fifth book in the USA Today best-selling Twenty-Sided Sorceress urban fantasy series.

The End is Nigh: The Apocalypse Triptych (Anthology)
Famine. Death. War. Pestilence. These are the harbingers of the biblical apocalypse, of the End of the World. In science fiction, the end is triggered by less figurative means: nuclear holocaust, biological warfare/pandemic, ecological disaster, or cosmological cataclysm.
But before any catastrophe, there are people who see it coming. During, there are heroes who fight against it. And after, there are the survivors who persevere and try to rebuild. THE APOCALYPSE TRIPTYCH will tell their stories.
Edited by acclaimed anthologist John Joseph Adams and bestselling author Hugh Howey, THE APOCALYPSE TRIPTYCH is a series of three anthologies of apocalyptic fiction. THE END IS NIGH focuses on life before the apocalypse. THE END IS NOW turns its attention to life during the apocalypse. And THE END HAS COME focuses on life after the apocalypse.
Post-apocalyptic fiction is about worlds that have already burned. Apocalyptic fiction is about worlds that are burning. THE END IS NIGH is about the match.
Folly narrated two stories in this anthology:
- “Wedding Day” by Jake Kerr
- “Heaven is a Place on Planet” X by Desirina Boskovich. You can listen to the narration of Desirina’s story at Drabblecast.
