From Kevin Candela’s sf/fantasy/horror collection A Year in the Borderlands comes a pair of science-fiction adventures.

In “Lost Horizons Travel Agency”, greedy corporate executive Melvik Joay of the not-too-distant future schemes to alter the past to his advantage by jumping ship when his “historical recreation cruise” takes him back to Borneo in the “ancient” year 1959. In “Suckers”, a modern day horror epic, a hurricane dredges escaped black ops nightmare creatures up from the depths to prey on those trapped in the storm, including hard luck second story man Shake Knightly, who may actually have to become a decent human being if he hopes to survive.

Styled like a classic drive-in double feature, this pair of tales strives to evoke that beloved era and its associated feelgood emotions while still thrilling and frightening those willing to take the rides. Both stories are family-style entertainment with little foul language and virtually no “adult situations” – in other words, sheer all-ages fun.

  • A B Movie Madness Science Fiction Double Feature

    Gary Bennett does a fine job narrating, and does a good job playing things straight and making you care about the characters, even if it means you are supposed to dislike them. I enjoyed his work, and am glad that Candela managed to secure yet another good narrator for his stories.

  • No-one can resist a Double Feature!

    Gary Bennett did an awesome job performing and made the stories really standout.

  • Do yourself a favor and grab this book...

    I've heard Gary Bennett before and love him, and true to form he did not disappoint! Gary seems to have a talent of making you believe that the story is true, that he's relaying actual events
