Sometimes, the future is a freaky place. No space battles, or androids, or palace intrigue on distant planets. Sometimes it's ganja stealing extraterrestrials and unexpected nuclear holocausts. It can even be joy-riding aliens that get trapped in goat bodies and kidnapped by musical castrati. Wild, wacky stuff can happen in the future, but at least this week you can read about it for free.

$7 or Better – 1/22/2019

Double the fun continues with our $7 or Better list this week. You'll find two great mysteries or thrillers below by highly rated authors who've reached the USA Today and New York Times bestsellers list. Along with Mae Clair's Hode's Hill and Graham Smith's Cumbrian Major Crimes Bureau, the other standout is the graphic novel series Breakneck by Duane Swierczynski.
