Six months after Sah'Reena's arrival, a strange object crash lands on Earth. A device she's positive came from her home planet, Murrall. At the same time, NASA scientists discover a strange new body orbiting the sun exactly opposite of Earth. It's only when a Deathship appears close to the Johnson Space Center in Houston that she and Robin learn the truth: Murrall was caught up in the same anomaly as her space pod, and has been brought into this solar system.
Now her life is once again in jeopardy as her planet wants her back to fulfill the original death sentence placed upon her. But when Robin travels back to Murrall to present himself as her true mate, and to ask them to spare her life, they witness the horrible devastation caused when the planet was ripped from its galaxy.
Knowing it may be his only chance to save the woman he loves, Robin offers a possible solution to save both Sah'Reena and her dying world. But first, he has to prove to everyone that he and the woman he’s taken to wife are compatible by undergoing a proving ceremony.
However, regardless of the outcome, one man is determined to see the powerful Gifted dead, no matter what the cost.
Warning: Contains dangerous rock slides, paint balls, arrogant men in high positions of authority, alien food, see-through tents, skimpy uniforms, in-laws, and a transference of power that shocks both Robin and the woman he loves—a woman who may be the most dangerous creature in the universe.

This Monday is a brand new episode of Graphic Policy Radio and joining us are the team behind the webcomic Bash Back. The comic is described as "a story of the Queer Mafia" from the minds and creativity of writers Kelsey Hercs and Lawrence Gullo and artist Fyodor Pavlov. The webcomic is updated each Monday.
After thousands of years of bloodshed, torment, and ridicule, now is the time to take what is ours. Bash Back comic is a cathartic, hyper-violent, contemporary queer revenge fantasy.
Kelsey Hercs is a playwright and performer based in New York City. Bash Back is her first foray into writing for comics, and she is thrilled that this project is the one she's cutting her comic-writing teeth on.
Russian emigre Fyodor Pavlov is a freelance illustrator, comic artist and smut peddler. In print, Pavlov’s work can be found in Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine, The Ouroboros Cycle, Queerotica: A Comics Anthology, and more. His latest comics foray is the art of Bash Back. Together with his husband and creative partner Lawrence Gullo, he co-directs Dr. Sketchy's NYC, throws costume parties and raises a very spoiled cat.
Lawrence Gullo - Writer, colorist, and graphic design for Bash Back. Artist and performance artist. Speaker on transgender issues.

The Grand Scheme of Things~
THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY meets
"Stranger Than Fiction," in which two humans are accidentally sent to another universe and land in the middle of a story that is being written by a supreme being who has just come out of one of history's longest bouts of writer's block.
The author, Bill Friday, decides that his novel will play out on a giant ball of dirt that he calls The Earth, which, in his language means ‘profit making business venture.’ The presence of the two humans on the barren planet, however, has dramatic and historic consequences for The Earth, and
their existence threatens to ruin, not only the entire plot, but possibly Bill's career as well.
“Clever, insightful, and delightfully deranged, THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS takes our universe and imposes gravity upon it, so it can be turned upside down. It is an enjoyable story about someone who is unfit to be creating life—a cool comeback comedy that competently combines cosmological conjecture, courageous career courses, and coping with creative commons conflicts.”
–Logan J. Hunder, author of WITCHES BE CRAZY
Michelle goes out on the town with friends but never returns home. Every parent’s nightmare; their teenage daughter goes missing. Time passes; the police inform the parnts to expect worst.
DS Jim Broadbent becomes involved in the investigation. He begins to uncover a sickening sex trade which cuts across an MI5 investigation.
He is then taken into the world of the arms trade where sex abuse and white girls are trafficked in part payment.
The investigation leads to Spain where he reignites his affair with Sonja; not under the circumstances he would have liked, but to further the link in the arms trade being investigated by MI5…
The Circle: How the Power of a Single Wish Can Change Your Life~
One carefully crafted wish can serve as a match that ignites lasting change in your life. With Laura Day’s brilliant book, The Circle, readers will learn how to develop their inherent intuition and to create everything they want in their lives. Dreaming about the future does not need to remain a mere fantasy; thinking about the things you want brings them into the present moment and allows you to make room for them to flourish in your life. Laura Day’s instructions are simple, yet profound: “Pretend that your wish has come true. Feel your ‘New Reality,’ taste it, smell it, see it, think it, remember it, hear it.” When you hold an intention in your mind and in your heart, you are inviting it to come into your life. You’re actualizing it. You’re making its presence known to the universe. You’re making it happen. You’re ready.
A.J and Joe are back and ready to roll. Today we are excited as we begin our 2016 Fantasy Baseball Position previews.
We start with the catchers. We all know about Buster Posey and even up and comer, Kyle Schwarber. But what can you expect from them and the other guys? When do you draft your catcher? How about single catcher vs. two catcher league? We cover that and more.
Next is the First Base preview. There are some real studs at this position, but this year feels like there is a lot less depth at the position than in recent years. Should you worry about Miguel Cabrera's injury history? Can Votto repeat last season? Is more decline expected for Albert Pujols?
We also give our sleepers and busts at each position as well.
As always call in or tweet us during the show @fantasysixpack (Joe) or @AppleGarthAlgar (A.J.) to give us your opinion or ask a question.
