AUTHOR JOHN F. ALLEN TO ATTEND INCONJUNCTION XXXIX

Greetings, Salutations and Warm Welcomes!

This year will mark my 7th consecutive year as a vendor at the InConJunction Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention!  This convention holds a special place in my heart because it’s where, as an author, I “cut my teeth,” as it were. I promoted my very first novel, appeared and moderated my first panel as an author here and was welcomed with open arms. I met quite a few authors I admired, and developed long lasting friendships along the way. The people who run this convention are amongst the most loyal and dedicated group I’ve encountered yet, on my writer’s journey. Please plan to attend and visit me there!

 

WHERE: Indianapolis Marriott East, 7202 E 21st St, Indianapolis, IN 46219, just off Shadeland Avenue.

WHEN: Fri, July 5th – Sun July 7th

The international, supernatural counter-intelligence agency known as G.E.N.E.S.I.S., sends Captain Alexandre “Neal” Du Bois, a.k.a. Knight Ranger, and the creator of the weapon, Dr. Hakim Okafor, to Berlin to investigate.

Neal and Okafor encounter a deep cover G.E.N.E.S.I.S. agent with dubious objectives and an heiress with a scheme to disrupt the political landscape of unified Germany. Worse, the heiress has thrown in with a megalomaniac who plots to use secret Nazi technology from World War II to corner the global energy market. Can Neal and Okafor thwart this powerhouse alliance? And how will they cope when an even greater evil surfaces?

“An Ivory Christmas” is a part of a NEW Holiday Anthology, Gifts of the Magi!

gotm-cover-final100aToday, I can finally share the BIG news about the NEW ORIGINAL collection of holiday stories co-edited with my good friends R.J. Sullivan, E. Chris Garrison and me.

The anthology is called Gifts of the Magi: A Speculative Holiday Collection and features new tales by our friends and ourselves, most of whom have series’ in progress, and feature a story set in the world of that series. And yes, I have a new story in this collection.

Ivory Blaque has returned in a brand-new short story titled “An Ivory Christmas”, which takes place on Christmas Eve!

While out shopping for a last minute gift for Malik, Ivory stumbles upon an open case involving missing children. She must use all her abilities, along with some otherworldly help, to find the children, put an end to the monster responsible and return the children safely to their parents.

Gifts of the Magi is a first time endeavor for me, as I co-edited the anthology and also ventured into indie publishing under a new brand, in a co-partnership between R.J., Chris and me, called SFG Publishing. It’s our first attempt at supporting a local charity and all monies go to Indy Reads Books in support of  their good work.

Besides a new story by me, you’ll find a new Rebecca Burton/Blue Shaefer tale by R.J., a new story set in Chris’ Tipsy Fairy Tales / Road Ghosts world, and stories set in several of my favorite worlds, created by authors Chantal Noordeloos, David Jobe, Katina French, Debra Holland, an awesome standalone story by A.D. Roland and many more!

Copies will be sold at Indy Reads Books and are available online at Amazon print and ebook versions.
