“The Net” meets “Conspiracy Theory” with Earthquakes

Have you ever wondered what would happen in a catastrophic earthquake? Read SHAKEN for one woman’s experience.

Emma “J” for Joy Pearce is working at her editorial offices on the twenty-second floor of Three Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco when the long-dreaded next Great Earthquake devastates the Bay area. Only the disaster is worse than anyone could have imagined.

Amid horrific destruction, Emma rescues a man trapped in the rubble. In the heat of survival, she swiftly bonds with him, causing her to question her impending marriage to her long-time boyfriend.

But Jason Gibb is not the charming photojournalist he pretends to be. As Emma discovers his true identity, his mission in the City, and the dark secrets behind the catastrophe, she finds the choices she makes may mean the difference between her own life or death.

“Very scary. And remarkable.” Barry N. Malzberg, author and critic

SHAKEN is an ebook adaptation (and expansion into short novel form) of “Deus Ex Machina”, published in Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine, republished in the anthology Transcendental Tales From Asimov’s (Donning Press), translated into German and published in Gogols Frau, and translated and republished in magazines worldwide.

A list of Sources is included in the ebook.

Of The Gilded Age, the New York Times Book Review said, “A winning mixture of intelligence and passion.”

SHAKEN, a sexy Thriller, is on BarnesandNoble, US Kindle, Canada Kindle, UK Kindle, Apple, Kobo, and Smashwords.

Shaken is also on Amazon.com in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Japan, India, Mexico, and Netherlands.

4.4.18.ARA.CYBER_.590.KB

My cover artist and I were so happy with the way these new covers came out that we’ve already planned the color scheme for the cover of the third book in the Arachne trilogy. Actually, he said to me, “While we’re hot on this project, let’s just do the third book cover. You’ve got the title, we’ve got the colors, let’s go!”

I said, “There’s just one small problem. Two small problems. I haven’t written the book yet so I don’t have a page count. (You must have an exact page count to the measure the spine in millimeters of an inch.) And I haven’t written the book yet so I don’t have a book description for the back cover.”

He said (and I quote), “So just make something up!”

The final book in what is turning out to be a trilogy is SPYDER. Yes, I have notes and an outline. No, I haven’t started the book yet. I keep saying “yet.” Because I’m working on new stories and books to sell. So we shall see.

The first covers, done by William Morrow Publishing for the hardcovers, were kind of fun but essentially atrocious. I’m not even sure I want to scan them to show you. You can find them on Amazon. Basically, both book covers featured a scantily woman with a bare cleavage grappling with a robot. (My editor at the time was a man.)

Both Arachne and Cyberweb feature a heroine with a brain and a backbone. Both books are a serious analysis of Jungian philosophy of the human mind and the unconscious melded with what is still, to this day, cutting-edge theory of artificial intelligence and virtual reality. There is my trade-marked humor to keep some moments light. And there is bad sex. But still, the books aren’t about cleavage. Maybe the covers were more about New York publishing’s perception of women’s science fiction.

Fans noticed the discrepancy between my serious themes and the raunchy covers. See Goodreads for the various reader reviews.

The trade paperback covers by Eos Books were fantastically better. You can see them at http://www.lisamason.com/lisabooks.html. Scroll down the page. My editor by then was a woman. ‘Nuff said.

The new Bast Book covers capture, I think, the brutal urban setting of the books, the soulessness of heroine Carly Quester’s first endeavors there, and her harrowing conflicts with hostile AI entities that ensue. (This is a photo we’ve got of the foot of Market Street in downtown San Francisco.) The matched set, and the third book to come, remind us of the Black Lizard Press reprints of Raymond Chandler’s novels, the same size and also with evocative, nonrepresentational covers.

I prefer book covers that don’t feature an artist’s attempt to depict the characters. Romance books and some fantasy books usually depict human faces on the cover. For mainstream books and especially for books that are serious, though, the covers are often nonrepresentational and symbolic. Even the covers of the Twilight books, before the movies gave actors’ faces to the characters, were symbolic. And effective.

So there you have, my friends. Click on the title for reviews and more.

6.20.17.SOL.BOOK.2.NEW

So thrilled this book is back in print! And as timely as ever!

What readers say:
“This book was so true to life that I felt like I was there. I recommend it to anyone.”
“More than a great science-fiction, a great novel as well.”
“My favourite SF book of all time, beautiful, cynical and completely involving….Unmissable!”

The year is 1967 and something new is sweeping across America: good vibes, bad vibes, psychedelic music, psychedelic drugs, anti-war protests, racial tension, free love, bikers, dropouts, flower children. An age of innocence, a time of danger. The Summer of Love.

San Francisco is the Summer of Love, where runaway flower children flock to join the hip elite and squares cruise the streets to view the human zoo.

Lost in these strange and wondrous days, teenager Susan Bell, alias Starbright, has run away from the straight suburbs of Cleveland to find her troubled best friend. Her path will cross with Chiron Cat’s Eye in Draco, a strange and beautiful young man who has journeyed farther than she could ever imagine.

With the help of Ruby A. Maverick, a wise and feisty half-black, half-white hip entrepreneur, Susan and Chi discover a love that spans five centuries. But can they save the world from demons threatening to destroy all space and time?

A harrowing coming of age. A friendship ending in tragedy. A terrifying far future. A love spanning five centuries. And a gritty portrait of a unique time in American history.

The cover, hand-drawn by Tom Robinson, is styled to look like a 1960s psychedelic poster.

Calling All Fans

‘Summer of Love is an important American literary contribution that may very well have a strong and viable fan base. Where are you? Join us!
This novel is loads of fun to read. The majority of the characters are hippies from the 1960s who meet a stranger from the future who’s looking to save his world. This fellow, Chiron, needs to find a troubled adolescent teen named Susan (a.k.a. Starbright) for a very compelling reason. The book has a great deal to offer: swift action, lovable characters, spiritual insight, and well-chosen primary documents such as essays, poems, and news articles which round out the reader’s understanding of the worldview of the novel.
I think Summer of Love has excellent potential for a wider audience. I hope it continues to enjoy a healthy amount of sales in the used books market on this site. I wish even more for it to be in wider circulation. Some books talk about the sixties. This novel IS the sixties, thanks to the spirit and scholarship of its author. And, as one reader aptly put it, ‘the sci-fi stuff is just plain off the hook.’ Get a copy. Most people who have read it seem to respect it and enjoy it every bit as much as I do.”

New Reader Review! “Just checked to see if this book was on Kindle. It has been many years since I’ve read it but I remember it as one of my very favorite books. Time to go back and re-read it!”

In 2010, the ebook revolution took the publishing business by storm, and I was able to get Summer of Love before new and long-time readers alike as an ebook.

Now, seven years later in 2017, the print book revolution is happening. You will find the PRINT BOOK today at https://www.amazon.com/Summer-Love-Travel-Lisa-Mason/dp/1548106119/

So there you have it, my friends! Whether you’re a longtime reader or new, I hope you enjoy this classic!

2.4.18.CYBERWEB.1.28.18.SMLL.200

Carly Quester was once a professional telelinker with a powerful and corrupt mediation firm. Now she lives as an outlaw among the underground in San Francisco, wanted by the authorities for dubious crimes against Data Control. But with a new assignment from a mysterious sengine—and the help of a standalone AI entity, Pr. Spinner—she seeks the fast-track back into public telespace and the Prime Time.

Her assignment, however, comes with sticky strings attached. For it has made Carly the target of a ruthless mercenary ultra, the love obsession of the young shaman of a savage urban tribe—and a possible pawn of the Silicon Supremacists plotting no less than the annihilation of humankind.

Cyberweb is the sequel to Lisa Mason’s first novel, Arachne, and was published in hardcover by William Morrow, trade paperback by Eos, mass market paperback by AvoNova, and as an ebook by Bast Books.

“Mason’s endearing characters and their absorbing adventures will hook even the most jaded SF fan.”
–Booklist

“Lisa Mason stakes out, within the cyberpunk sub-genre, a territory all her own.”
–The San Francisco Chronicle

ARACHNE.1.28.18.SMLL

Breaking news! My classic cyberpunk about an ambitious young mediator who must confront a terrifying presence haunting her telelink is Back In Print! This was my first novel, and I was pretty obsessed with Jungian psychology, archetypes, and symbolism. Add to the mix virtual reality, a far-future internet called telespace, and sentient artificial intelligence, and you have a book that People Magazine called “Powerful . . . Entertaining . . . Imaginative”!

Yes, my photograph was in People. And yes, the book debuted at number nine on the Locus Magazine top ten Hardcover Bestsellers!

Here’s the book description:

High above the dangerous streets of post-quake San Francisco Island, mechanically modified professionals link minds in a cybernetic telespace to push through big deals and decisions at lightning speed. But unexplained telelink blackouts and bizarre hallucinations have marred mediator Carly Quester’s debut appearance before a computer-generated Venue—forcing her to consider delicate psychic surgery at the hands of a robot therapist, Prober Spinner. And suddenly the ambitious young mediator is at risk in a deadly Artificial Intelligence scheme to steal human souls—because the ghosts of Carly’s unconscious may be a prize well worth killing for.

“Powerful . . . Entertaining . . . Imaginative.”
–People Magazine

“In humanity’s daring to enter the cybernetic heaven (and hell) of telespace, Lisa Mason reveals the lineaments of all that is tragic and transcendent in our evolution. Once the journey into this vivid and terrifying future has begun, there is no returning until the infinite has been faced and the last word read.”
–David Zindell, Author of Neverness

“Cybernetics, robotics, the aftermath of San Francisco’s Big Quake II, urban tribalism—Lisa Mason combines them all with such deftness and grace, they form a living world. Mason spins an entertaining tale . . . She allows Carly’s robotic allies a measure of personality and sophistication beyond the stock role of a chirping R2D2 or a blandly sinister Hal . . . Her characters and their world will stay with you long after you’ve finished this fine book.”
–Locus, The Trade Magazine of Science Fiction and Fantasy

“Lisa Mason stakes out, within the cyberpunk sub-genre, a territory all her own.”
–The San Francisco Chronicle

“Mason’s endearing characters and their absorbing adventures will hook even the most jaded SF fan.”
–Booklist

“Arachne is an impressive debut by a writer gifted with inventiveness, wit, and insight. The characters face choices well worth reading about. This is cyberpunk with a heart.”
–Nancy Kress, Author of Brain Rose

“There is a refreshing amount of energy associated with Lisa Mason’s writing. The good old values are there: fun, excitement, drama—but served up with new and original twists. Lisa Mason is definitely a writer to watch—and to read.”
–Paul Preuss, Author of Venus Prime

“Lisa Mason must be counted among science fiction’s most distinctive voices as we rush toward the new millennium.”
–Ed Bryant

“Mason’s endearing characters and their absorbing adventures will hook even the most jaded SF fan.”
–Booklist

“One of my favorite books. I am delighted it is back in print. A thoroughly entertaining time travel story supported by vivid characterizations and settings.”

The year is 1895 and immigrants the world over are flocking to California on the transcontinental railroad and on transoceanic steamships. The Zoetrope demonstrates the persistence of vision, patent medicines addict children to morphine, and women are rallying for the vote. In San Francisco, saloons are the booming business, followed by brothels, and the Barbary Coast is a dangerous sink of iniquity. Atop Telegraph Hill bloody jousting tournaments are held and in Chinatown the tongs deal in opium, murder-for-hire, and slave girls.

Zhu Wong, a prisoner in twenty-fifth century China, is given a choice–stand trial for murder or go on a risky time-travel project to the San Francisco of 1895 to rescue a slave girl and take her to safety. Charmed by the city’s opulent glamour, Zhu will discover the city’s darkest secrets. A fervent population control activist in a world of twelve billion people, she will become an indentured servant to the city’s most notorious madam. Fiercely disciplined, she will fall desperately in love with the troubled self-destructive heir to a fading fortune.

And when the careful plans of the Gilded Age Project start unraveling, Zhu will discover that her choices not only affect the future but mean the difference between her own life or death.

“A bravura performance . . . . A winning mixture of intelligence and passion.” The New York Times Book Review

“Graceful prose. . . .A complex and satisfying plot.” Library Journal

“Rollicking. . . .Dazzling.” Locus Magazine

“Should both leave the reader wanting more and solidify Mason’s position as one of the most interesting writers in science fiction.” Publisher’s Weekly

The cover, by San Francisco artist Tom Robinson, is styled to look like an 1890s billboard.
