FREE, for a limited time: The Juice and Other Stories by Bill Jones Jr.

The Juice and Other Stories brings together a collection of 13 tales of romance, science fiction, urban fantasy, and suspense from the imaginative author of The Stream trilogy and the Sci Fi adventure, Hard as Roxx.

In "Remembering," beings from another world find themselves herded along their own trail of tears. Their leader, Tofray, has the unenviable job of remembering their stories and their suffering. "Mrs. What's-Her-Name" details a woman's struggle to regain her memory, and her life, after a devastating brain injury. In "The Juice," a woman of the street searches for her next client, and promises him surprises. "The Clown Man" visits a beautiful child's dreams and turns them to nightmares; however, Cruz, a dream walker, is there, and he means to keep the girl safe.

The novelette "Manhattan Transference" details the story of Luce, a vaporous visitor from a dying planet, who must find the only robotics expert who can help save the alien race from destruction. Luce's sun will go supernova soon, and without Dr. Roman's help, all of Luce's people will die with it. There is only one problem: Luce's new human form, and the raw emotions that come with it. "Fool O'clock" details a stressful day in the life of Jim Pyle, Deputy Director of the Bureau of Fool Abatement, a government agency tasked with keeping the U.S. safe from fools of all sorts.

In the novelette "Days of the Never Was," three pairs of arguing friends disappear into a strange fog bank and reemerge with their entire worlds turned upside down.

Other stories are "Crazy Magnet," about an investigator with a gift for attracting crazy people; "He Ain't Heavy," a suspense story about twin brothers. "From the Black, the Blues," Sci Fi romance about lovers from two time periods; "The Utopian / Dystopian Compass," Sci Fi; "Reggie and Rocky Vs. Space Monsters from Beneath the Bed," a contemporary fantasy starring 3 and 5-year-old dream walkers; and "Set Fire to the Rain," an excerpt from Emprise.
