books aren’t just what we do, they’re who we are

Happy Book Birthday to Michael J. Martinez!

“A smart look at a Cold War in many ways even colder and scarier and deadlier than the one we barely survived.” New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove

Book #2 of the MAJESTIC 12 series is available today – another paranormal espionage thriller from acclaimed genre-bender Michael J. Martinez. Huge congratulations, Michael, and happy reading to all!

It’s 1949, and the Cold War is heating up across the world. For the United States, the key to winning might be Variants?once ordinary US citizens, now imbued with strange paranormal abilities and corralled into covert service by the government’s top secret MAJESTIC-12 program.

Some Variants are testing the murky international waters in Syria, while others are back at home, fighting to stay ahead of a political power struggle in Washington. And back at Area 51, the operation’s headquarters, the next wave of recruits is anxiously awaiting their first mission. All the while, dangerous figures flit among the shadows and it’s unclear whether they are threatening to expose the Variants for what they are . . . or to completely destroy them. Are they working for the Soviet Union, or something far worse?
