Wildside Press to Publish Edward M. Lerner Armageddon/Paradise ‘Double’

Remember Ace Doubles, two short science-fiction titles bound back to back? Edward M. Lerner sure does. In the spirit of Ace Doubles, Wildside Press and Lerner are doubling up — publishing 2 books in a single volume.

On one side, the short novel Countdown to Armageddon (originally serialized in Jim Baen’s Universe):

Hezbollah has obtained an atomic bomb and a would-be martyr eager to deliver it — and that’s the good news. The bad news, unknown even to Hezbollah, is that their physicist has also found a way to take his new bomb back to a turning point in European history.

Harry Bowen, an American physicist, and Terrence Ambling, a British agent turned historian, are determined to stop Abdul Faisel and prevent the nullification of all Western civilization. Their mission can be accomplished, if at all, only in the darkest of the Dark Ages —

And there, too, time is running out.

The flip side offers A Stranger in Paradise, a new fiction collection including the titular story. The five novelettes and short stories, running the thematic gamut from nanotech to space opera to the conjuring of demons, first appeared in Analog, Amazon Shorts, and Jim Baen’s Universe.
