Celebrate “Read an E-Book Week” with Red/shift, a new novelette by Geoffrey Thorne

“Read an E-Book Week,” which runs from March 7 to March 13, 2010, is an event that encourages readers to enjoy literature without the pulp. To help stimulate interest in the event, some e-book stores are offering free or deeply discounted e-books. One such store is Smashwords, which is offering the new novelette Red/shift (2009), a science fiction-fantasy-action-thriller set on a colonized Mars by American novelist and screenwriter Geoffrey Thorne, for only 99 cents! If you’re not familiar with Red/shift, here’s the promotional piece:

A dashing killer trying to outrun his past... A world-weary cop determined to close her most baffling case... A dying heiress desperate to find a cure for her disease... When these stories collide on the same Martian night the results are not only explosive but deadly.

Geoffrey Thorne is the author of Star Trek: Titan: Sword of Damocles (2007). He maintains the blog Pocket Full of Mumbles and resides in Los Angeles. Thorne's favorite authors include Octavia Butler, Alexandre Dumas, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Roger Zelazny, Ursula K. LeGuin, Greg Bear and John Steinbeck.
