Gary Jonas is the author of the Jonathan Shade urban fantasy series: Modern Sorcery, Acheron Highway, Dragon Gate, and the forthcoming Anubis Nights. The best of his short fiction was collected in Quick Shots. Other work includes the novella, Night Marshal: A Tale of the Undead West, and the novels One-Way Ticket to Midnight, and Pirates of the Outrigger Rift (with Bill D. Allen), which ran as a Kindle Serial from 47North:
When the security director of the powerful corporation Nebulaco dies under mysterious circumstances, courier Sai Collins has one last top-secret delivery to make for him. But she has a secret of her own; she’s a computer telepath who can connect to the grid without hardware.
It’s a talent she needs when she arrives at the drop point to make the delivery and is ambushed by heavily armed goons, barely escaping with her life. Now, caught in the crosshairs of feuding lords, unrelenting security forces, and dangerous outlaws, she’ll need some help to make it out alive. Enter a pair of unlikely allies also caught in the mix: charming, down-on-his-luck pilot Hank Jensen and jaded PI Mike Chandler. Their mission: take down the ruthless pirate who is bringing the galaxy to its knees with his bloody hijackings of corporate trade routes.
Unfolding at a break-neck pace, Pirates of the Outrigger Rift is the rollicking new sci-fi adventure of corporate espionage and interstellar piracy.
