Zero Hour hot gay sci fi by Jordan Castillo Price

June 14, 2010 - Whew, after 2-1/2 years, it's done! I will leave the full version of the first draft online for free. If you enjoy it, please consider purchasing the ebook or paperback.

Ernest just turned thirty. It’s time for retirement, freedom from the tedious drudgery of his job as a data clerk. Time to explore parts of the city he’s never seen before, and hopefully meet some people other than his Deacon or his health monitor. And at the end of the month? Time to die.

Will mans the counter at the historic coffee shop, and when he talks, he sounds just like an old-time data feed. He’s nothing like anyone Ernest has ever met--which isn’t saying much--but still, something about him simply doesn’t parse.

ZERO HOUR is a serialized story published monthly in Jordan's newsletter, JCP News.

Curious? Read online. It's free!

A polished, illustrated version is available in PDF, ePub, Mobi and Lit at JCP Books.

Also available in paperback at and the Book Depository, on the Kindle, and at B&N for the Nook.
