Excalibur Books is an independent publishing house based in Tokyo, Japan, publishing Science Fiction, Horror, and Fantasy. A lot of what we publish is fiction set in Japan or has themes of Japanese mythology, legends and folklore, but we cover other times and places as well in our fiction and non-fiction. We have twelve titles in print (both ebooks and paperbacks) at this time of writing.
During October 2018, Excalibur Books is running a contest to give away e-books and paperbacks of the Japan-based science fiction thriller, ZERO SUM GAME by Cody L. Martin. Entrance to the contest is by signing up for the newsletter service (GDPR-law approved) which offers freebies, discounts and news from the Tokyo-based indie publisher Excalibur Books.
The contest will take place from October 15th to October 31st 2018.
The homeworld of the race known as the Noigel has been destroyed, and their existence as a species is on a razor’s edge. They have decided that Earth shall be their planet’s replacement, once certain adjustments have been made … such as the annihilation of all human life.
Rogue Noigel agents land on Earth, working against their race’s genocidal plans. When one of them is fatally injured, he passes on his chameleon-like battle suit to a Japanese schoolgirl, Hina Takamachi. Guided by Voice, the suit’s operating AI, she discovers that it gives her incredible powers, just like the anime heroines she admired as a child. Once she learns the true horror of what the Noigel intend, she must overcome her fears and self-doubt, and learn to use the suit’s powers to stop them.
With her only allies being Voice and a teacher who accidentally discovers her secret, Hina finds herself in a race against time to stop the Noigel infiltrators … and keep her friends and family out of harm’s way.
For one world to win, the other must lose everything …
” … a wondrous story that pulls the reader in, and makes them feel as if they’re part of the journey. Well balanced between young adult and adult, this is a story for all ages.”
– Five-star Amazon review from John Gorski.
