Just bought Geoffrey Thorne’s 2009 novelette Red/shift for my Kindle ebook reader

Shhh! Don’t tell the anti-Amazon crowd, but I just purchased the novelette Red/shift (The Winterman Project, 2009), written by American novelist and screenwriter Geoffrey Thorne, for my Kindle ebook reader. A "wholly original science fiction-fantasy-action-thriller set on a well colonized planet Mars," here’s the promotional blurb:

A dashing killer trying to outrun his past... A world-weary cop determined to close her most baffling case... A dying heiress desperate to find a cure for her disease... When these stories collide on the same Martian night the results are not only explosive but deadly.

Geoffrey Thorne is the author of Star Trek: Titan: Sword of Damocles (2007). He maintains the blog Pocket Full of Mumbles and resides in Los Angeles. Thorne's favorite authors include Octavia Butler, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Roger Zelazny, Ursula K. LeGuin, Greg Bear and John Steinbeck.
