New Release: In the Heat of the Day by Peter Rondel

IFWG Publishing is very pleased to announce the release of Peter Rondel‘s climate change science fiction novel, In the Heat of the Day. “We are particularly proud of this title,” Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG Publishing Australia said, “as it is our first adult science fiction novel for our Australian imprint, as well as covering an underrepresented subgenre – climate change. Two firsts.”

Peter Rondel is not new to IFWG Publishing, as he has a wonderful children’s illustrated novel published with us, A Magpie Called Will, in collaboration with New Zealand artist, Frances Hutt.

For decades, the subject of climate change and global warming were regarded as nonsense by many. When the threat becomes a reality, one young technician seeks solutions to the world’s biggest problems when oil becomes unavailable.

The need for electric power and new means of transport become his dedication. Unable to afford patents, his inventions become the target for a criminal group. His girlfriend is kidnapped to force him to cooperate.

Technically, he deceives the group with false information and is forced to relocate to a cave in Australia’s far north. He is faced with the consequences of his deceptions when global tragedies become the result.

In the Heat of the Day is currently available in Kindle and Kobo format, and will be soon available in print and other ebook formats. EPUB and Kindle compatible formats can now be purchased direct from the publisher.

Preview: In the Heat of the Day by Peter Rondel

In only a matter of days we will be releasing Peter Rondel’s latest novel, In the Heat of the Day – a science fiction novel within the climate change sub-genre. More information will be available on release, but in the meantime, enjoy the cover by Elizabeth Lang.

News: Release of Gravity’s Eye by Ian C. Douglas

It is with great pleasure that we announce the release of Gravity’s Eye by Ian C. Douglas, the second book in the Zeke Hailey young teen science fiction series. The first book, The Infinity Trap, had been received very well, particularly in the UK, and we look forward to similar reactions with this exciting sequel. Special mention should also be given to EL Designs for cover design and much of the artwork, and Catherine Archer-Wills for action art.

On Mars, your best friend sometimes turns out to be your worst enemy.

Zeke Hailey is struggling with life at the Chasm, the 23rd century school for psychics. His extrasensory skills have dried up and there’s a prehistoric robot out to kill him. At least he has a new mate, in the shape of late comer Fitch Crawley.

Only there’s more to Fitch than Zeke realises. The boy has a genius for hypnosis, making fools of the teachers. Fitch has an invisible pet too, a creature armed with deadly venom. Zeke and Fitch team up with an old foe, setting off on a Martian road trip. But this search for answers will bring them face to face with monsters and, most dangerous of all, a demon from beyond time. Zeke will have to do more than survive his mind-bending friend and the ancient killer robot.

As the universe starts to collapse, Zeke must choose between saving his friends or the human race. For nobody but Zeke can stop the apocalypse of Gravity’s Eye.

Gravity’s Eye is now available in Kindle format, and will shortly be available in trade paperback in all good online stores, and direct from IFWG Publishing Australia.

How far would you go to find your missing father? For Zeke Hailey, a teenager living in the 23rd century, even Mars is not too far. Zeke’s dad is one of the Mariners, a mysterious elite of psychics who have conquered Outer Space. Now he’s vanished on a secret mission.

But Zeke is an ordinary schoolboy without a shred of his father’s psychic powers. Armed with nothing but his wits, he bluffs his way into the prestigious Mariner’s school on Mars in search of answers. Mind-reading teachers and psychokinetic bullies are the least of his worries. A ruthless archaeologist is seeking the Infinity Trap, an ancient machine of unimaginable power and lair to an evil as old as the Universe.  An alien artefact downloads the language of the long dead Martians into Zeke’s brain. Thanks to this newfound skill, Zeke alone understands the apocalyptic danger about to be unleashed.

Not only must Zeke rescue his friends, but humanity itself. If he can first survive a planet filled with demons, outlaws, and androids, not to mention quicksand and dust storms. And, as the odds stack against him, will Zeke make the ultimate sacrifice—his father?
