Where Timeless Tales Unfold

Not a Bar Joke. Well, Kind of a Bar Joke

Per Bastet Publications is proud to announce our latest publication: the Southern Indiana Writers’ Group’s latest anthology.


Apollo and Athena Walk Into a Bar: (Art Meets Science)

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is ApolloAthena.jpg

Centuries ago, back when the Old Gods first fled the Mortal Realm . . .” Apollo and Athena, fallen god and goddess, respectively, of the arts and the sciences, linger in the shadows of the bar where Neptune regales his patrons with jokes. Also lurking in these writings are, among other wonders, a congenial vampire-detective who, with Ben Franklin, courts a lovely automaton that blows poison kisses; a grieving colonist on Mars grappling with meaning and religious doubt; a trio of canoe-transporting raccoons; a young woman mathematician approaching the mystery of her absent father, the notorious Romantic poet Lord Byron; and a Walden-carrying, Hoosier Everyboy trying to map the Alaskan wilds.

Available in print and Kindle editions.

Per Bastet Acquires Popular Memoir!

When the rights to Joanna Foreman’s popular memoir THE KNOW-IT-ALL GIRL became available, Per Bastet snapped them up. We’ve had our eye on this one for some time, and are delighted to add it to our catalog.

Unlike some books by former members of groups, this is no screed or rant. Yes, there was pain. Yes, there was disillusionment. Yes, there was devastating loss. But there was also joy, friendship, and emotional enrichment. In her memoir, Joanna Foreman navigates through her conviction that she knew it all to her present free contentment. This memoir, told with humor and deep emotion, takes you inside the life of a “JW” and out again, with the help of a guide you’ll feel is confiding to you across the table of a comfortable restaurant.

“I don’t know exactly when I started falling out of The Truth, but I remember the precise moment when, way up high in a tree, I made the decision to get in.” (Chapter 6) ~*~ “You think you have lifetime friends in the Organization? Try leaving.”(Chapter 8)

Available in print and for Kindle.

She’s Ba-ack!

Marian Allen’s first published novel has long been out of print. Now, with a new cover, a new title, and a little internal tweaking, it’s back by popular demand.

The Wolves of Port Novo

Previously published as EEL’S REVERENCE

Elderly priest of Holy Sweet Micah, Aunt Libby, leaves her parish in a huff and walks into danger. Not from the tough young mercreature who robs her, not from the pragmatic waterfront restaurateur who gives her the briefest possible shelter, but from fellow priests.

“Reaver” priests, mercenary and cynical, have driven all true priests out of Port Novo and plan to expand their power as far as possible. One old woman isn’t going to stand in their way.

Or so they think.

Available in print and Kindle versions.

Night is Day for New Release

Per Bastet Publications is delighted to release the latest from T. Lee Harris: A new Byron Peale adventure!

San Francisco, 1890. Byron Cyrus Peale is a vampire, but he is far from the most dangerous person in town. A ruthless Shanghai ring is abducting citizens and visitors alike, selling them to ships’ captains who need crew and don’t care where they get them. Peale faces danger from all sides. Floyd Kaetin – A tough, savvy police captain who knows Peale’s secret and wants to use his supernatural abilities to break up the ring. Zhao Conguyn – Owner of the Golden Rain Pavilion Saloon who isn’t aware of his friend’s secret, yet unknowingly threatens to expose it. Ignatius Dulmage – A young police inspector, charged with acting as Peale’s minder. He takes his task seriously. Claire Ashford – The beautiful widow who threatens to invade his heart — with dire consequences. And the crimps who mistake him for just another warm body.

Available in print and Kindle editions.

New Release! Other Earth, Other Stars

otherearthotherstarsPer Bastet Publications is pleased to announce our latest new release. Other Earth Other Stars by Marian Allen.

These stories and poems, most collected from various venues and one brand new, imagine alternate Earth, future Earth, Earthlings in space and on other planets, and people of other planets.

In order to work off-world, you have to have your connection to the ‘net severed. But what if you still hear voices in your head?

In an alternate history, three young friends and their mechanical dog rent an airship for a jolly holiday. Then sky pirates happen.

Can you ever trust a mermayd? They may be charming, but there’s nobody trickier.

A woman begins to wonder exactly who she is after her atoms are reassembled at the end of a transfer.

By land, air, or sea, with two arms or eight, driving lessons are driving lessons.

These stories and poems, most collected from various venues and one brand new, imagine alternate Earth, future Earth, Earthlings in space and on other planets, and people of other planets.

Science fiction. It’s not just ray-guns anymore.

It’s currently available for the Kindle at Amazon for just $2.99, and will be available in print on September 26, 2015! If you must have a print copy sooner, visit us at the Kentuckiana Authors Book Blitz this weekend. We’ll have pre-release copies available!

Now hear this! Audiobooks from Per Bastet

Our motto may be “where timeless tales unfold,” but that doesn’t mean we’re stuck in the days of papyrus scrolls.  Per Bastet Publications is proud to announce that we are in the process of getting our catalog available in audiobook format! You will soon be able to download and listen to our books from Amazon, Audible and iTunes.

Winter Wonderland by T. Lee Harris and Whiskey on the Rocks by Katina French should be available in August, with more titles to come over the next few months.

You could spend your commute listening to radio commercials featuring an annoying car salesman, or you could listen to tales of murder, mayhem, mystery, and humor. We’re pretty sure we know what we’d prefer.

Stay tuned for more news!
