Inside the dome, 117 tube-born kids lived free of contamination. Trained since birth, they were almost ready to launch their ships and leave the dying planet behind. They were humanity’s final hope to avoid extinction. Their mission would be to explore the farthest reaches of the galaxy seeking out a habitable world free of the C-1 virus.
They tried not to think of conditions outside the dome where the virus had driven the last of the uninfected into the ground, into dark bunkers where they waited to be rooted out by cannibalistic hordes. Streets had become boneyards. Weeds grew inside long-forgotten government buildings.
Fifteen-year-old Genevieve Fifthborn knew all this, she was fully aware that the world was coming to an end, but on the island of The Eden Project she had much bigger problems, boy problems. Only her first love might risk far more than a broken heart, it just might bring about the end of our species.
Twenty years later a new society has formed from the ruins. Utopia is the envy of the outside world: powerful, highly advanced and led by the mysterious Circle of Eight. Fuelled by the limitless power of the ‘Genie Reactor’ its people want for nothing. Freedom and Equality exists in Utopia. Ellie, a survivor of the disaster has carved out a new life in Utopia. She is wealthy and successful, but lonely and haunted by dreams of the past. A brutal murder will plunge her, and others, into a world of horrifying revelations, death and madness, as she explores the dark side of Utopia: where a terrifying secret awaits and nothing is as it seems…

The light-hearted adventure of Leander, a young man on another world who dreams of being a treasure hunter. The world is painted from his view as he runs through the story; living in a country on the brink of war he continues to be optimistic and naive, but when his quest leads him to enemy territory he discovers it’s not what he expected.
What they’re saying about it:
“One of the strongest aspects of the novel is how vivid the main characters are. The give and take between Leander and Ellora early on has a perfect blend of mutual suspicion, humor as well as affection that I found immensely appealing.”
The aliens are here, and now our lives are different: no wars, no hunger, no exploitation. For political prisoner Thomas Bridge, there can be a strange new love; for the alien delegate, Avdryana, there can be companionship in a world that she finds crowded and foreign. But even with hope for the future, can there be an escape from the stifling ideas and expectations of the past?
“All Roads Lead to Winter” is a novella that deals with parallel worlds, politics, sexual tension, the grip of memory, the strength and generosity of women, the beauty of being together. It also looks at the pain of old lives that have not yet adjusted to the new.
An intimate drama with a vast background, a love story about heartbreak and hope, it uses the framework of science fiction to examine the very human costs of change and loss and new perspectives.

It was supposed to be a game. The idle rich of galactic Society loved to invent useless little games to keep themselves occupied–and the greatest was the Scavenger Hunt. Visit different worlds, pick up hard-to-get items that can’t simply be bought, and have a fine time. A clever way to pass empty moments.
Tyla deVrie and her twin brother, Bred, follow the family tradition of entering the Scavenger Hunt. But little do they realize as they hop from planet to planet aboard Bred’s decadent space yacht that the Scavenger Hunt is far more than a game; it will irrevocably change their lives. That is, if it doesn’t end them first.

“Stephen Goldin’s scifi adventure novel Scavenger Hunt is one hell of a ride in adventure land!”–T. Jackson King
All aliens visiting Earth are not little green things with exaggerated, oval shaped eyes. That’s what Avani Darrisaw found out when she gazed into the honey-brown irises of Seth, a prince from Amarka.
Sixteen year old Avani always knew there was more to the story about this secret war her father fought in—a war never broadcasted on the evening news. But when Counselor Vivian Brashear came from Savannah, Georgia, to her home in Winston Salem, her frustrations mounted even higher. The woman tells Avani that an alien Star Warrior has chosen her to help him come to earth, and that he must have talks with her. Avani tries to shrug-off the woman’s comments as the ranting of a lunatic, but still, her heart could not deny the gorgeous stranger now showing up in her dreams.
Pressured on every side, Avani feels she has no choice but to have these talks with Seth. Soon, their meetings throws the feisty teen into a tail spin for more reasons than one. Seth is trapped in a sphere and needs Avani to save him. She’d have to agree to undergo a ceremony, the Blood Melt, where Seth requires a deadly evacuation of her blood. As if the Blood Melt Ceremony wasn’t scary enough, if she consents to save him, a Walfarian Spiker, sworn enemy of the Amarkarues, would track and try to assassinate her. Find out whether Avani will risk her life to save Seth, and in return, how can Seth save her when he is imprisoned inside a disintegrating sphere?
