The following is a short snippet from my new book Sci-Fi with a Twist. The story is entitled, From My Cold Dead Hands.
My name is Max Fox. I kill people for a living. I’m a professional hit-man. Have gun…will kill, I always say. Otherwise, I’m pretty much a law-abiding citizen, a real nice guy you wouldn’t mind having as a next-door neighbor…that is, unless someone was to pay me to…you know…meet with you on a business matter. If that happens, then I have only one suggestion for you…run.
My life was pretty normal, normal for a hit-man that is, until that day my phone rang at 3:30 in the morning. I reluctantly picked it up. I just got to bed not more than ten minutes ago, but, as they say, there’s no rest for the wicked. I needed the money, after all. I tend to blow it faster than I make it. Chicks cost money.
It turned out to be some old man on the other end of the phone. He sounded scared, like he was about to cry. I didn’t care, of course, all I cared about was whether or not he had money. I agreed to meet the old man the following night in an abandoned parking lot about ten minutes away from my apartment. I told him to bring twenty grand, nothing smaller than hundred dollar bills. He agreed.
The old man was nervous and scared. He didn’t bother trying to hide it. He seemed like the type that had never done anything illegal before in his life.
“So, who do you want taken care of?” I asked.
“He’s…he’s a trained killer. He’s a professional hit man, and he’s been hired to kill me. I need you to get to him first.”

Buy the book at Amazon
There are eleven short stories in all. Most of the stories features time or space travel to some extent. There are a couple of westerns, a story of a hitman, a boy that travels to the 1980's, a preacher who needs the help of the Angel of Death, and a lot more.
Please order yourself a copy at Amazon and post a review. My goal is to get 50 reviews for Sci-Fi with a Twist in a year.
Thanks and have a great day. Be careful out there, because you never know what is just over the next hill.
