Since the summer of 2010, George Berger has published the following works of fiction:
Mendacities: July 2010. George’s first book, a YA adventure novel. In paperback and e-book forms, which differ slightly. Soon to be out of print.
Without A Spark: October 2011: George’s second novel, an eco-thriller. In paperback October 2011, for Amazon’s Kindle e-reader in December 2011, and for all other e-readers in June 2012.
An Accidental Fastball to the Heart: November 2012: Just your typical girl-meets-girl-and-breaks-her-nose romance novel. Exclusive to the Amazon Kindle as an ebook in November 2012, and available as a paperback in December 2012.
Well Met by Gaslight: April 2011. A very wordy early-Victorian adventure story. An e-book only title.*
Never According to Plan: July 2011. A very wordy early-Victorian comedy-of-errors, and a sequel to the above. An e-book only title.*
Stanley And His Sword: July 2011. A not-quite-erotica humorous adventure story. Rather well-liked by those who’ve read it. An e-book only title.*
All The Wrong Reasons: April 2012. A clean YA romantic comedy. Another e-book only title.*
Midnight’s Tale: May 2012. A literary tale of love, loss, and livestock. An e-book only title, and a Kindle Single at Amazon.*
Hamaika: September 2012. An urban fantasy, of sorts, with gratuitous zombie jokes and now seemingly obligatory discussions about food. An e-book only title, of course.*
The Nurse’s Dirty Secret: January 2011. Either a deconstruction or parody of erotica. Or actual, albeit horrible, erotica. Depends on who you asked. Written because someone bet me I wouldn’t. Everybody lost. There’s also a reading-group guide. (No, really.) A free e-book available for download in a couple of places, in a couple of formats. The PDF version is perhaps the most readable.
Grease is the Word: September 2011. An attempt to overcome my natural verbosity and write an adventure story in 2,500 words or less, for a contest. An e-book only release, it was free at most vendors, and should no longer be available for sale anywhere, now. You’re not missing much.
Nothing Like Love: February 2012. YA romance, written for (and rejected by) an anthology. E-book only.
The Crimson Scars: February 2012. Chick-lit, and a slightly pointless exercise in practicing-what-I-preach regarding an obscure craft discussion. An e-book only title.
In November 2012, the titles marked with an asterisk above were assembled into the paperback collection Unmarketable Dross, available most everywhere books are sold (ISBN 1480145696, 320pp, MSRP 14.95 USD). A great gift for the people in your life who don’t care for e-books!
