Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye
with Relativity from Henry Abner and JanosCorp Publishing
In a world where the super rich take vacations to the future, tough-as-nails homicide detective Stockton Ames wins the trip of a lifetime and meets the girl of his dreams.

But paradise soon turns ugly, in this gutsy, gritty "spacenoir" thriller, where nothing is as it seems and everyone has a secret. Humor, action, and adventure are at every turn as our hero uncovers greedy corporations, government plots, and undiscovered scientific phenomena, before ultimately coming to understand the true meaning of... Relativity.
Starring
Stockton Ames as the world weary detective, hell-bent on surviving the scrape with his hide intact, his belly full of cheap whiskey, and maybe a dame or two for his arm along the way.

Audrine Demarco as the damsel in distress with a secret from her past and a shake in her step. Does she need a helping hand, or a patsy to take the fall? This is one broad that is much more capable than she seems!

A cast of colorful characters including: geek-faced goons with big, big guns and the guts to use them; scantily-clad space vixens with legs that go all the way up (and back down again); drooling mutant monsters with a burning hunger for human flesh; and much, much more!
Featuring
...More twists and turns than you can shoot a ray-gun at! This plot is barnburner, so try to keep up, won'tcha?

...A dazzling ride through the world of tomorrow. Take a whirlwind tour of back alley crime scenes, plush orbital resorts, icy abandoned space stations, rusty rocket junkyards, and more!

...A handful of words that would make your mother blush, so let's keep this one out of the kiddies hands, huh?



A Tale Nearly Lost

The original manuscript for Relativity was written by pulp legend and small town police chief Henry Abner shortly before his death in 1935. However, the book remained a secret, until it was discovered quite by accident in the summer of 2014 inside sealed evidence files at the police station where he worked.

The Janos Corporation is proud to present this newly revised and edited text, with the support of the Henry Abner estate, to the public for the very first time.

From the Inside Flap:

Welcome to the Goddamned Lonely Universe, Mack! Where all your wildest dreams can come true, if you can just stay alive long enough to enjoy 'em!

RELATIVITY is a hard-boiled, speculative fiction novel and the 1st book of the Goddamned Lonely Universe Saga from JanosCorp Publications and golden-era pulp fiction heavyweight Henry Abner. This is a world of renegade robots, double-crossing dames, and daring space detectives; of classic noir themes and slick technology. Think of it as Raymond Chandler clinking drinks with Ray Bradbury, in a gin-joint owned by Robert Heinlein. Bottoms up!

About the Author:

Henry Abner Sturdivant was best remembered to those that knew him as a family man, a man of god, and a man of the law, keeping the peace as Chief of Police in the small town of Washington, Georgia. But to thousands of adoring fans around the United States and indeed even the world, he was Henry Abner, master-crafter of gritty tales of crime and revenge.
Nearly all of Abner's originally published work falls squarely in the realm of the hard-boiled detective story. He had a prolific, if modestly successful, career writing for the mystery pulps of the day. He dallied into westerns occasionally, although he never published any science fiction before the Goddamned Lonely Universe series. Ten years later, Henry Abner Sturdivant would lose his life from injuries sustained while apprehending a suspect, much to the shock of the residents of the peaceful, sleepy town of Washington and his devoted fans around the world.

It is perhaps a miracle that the Goddamned Lonely Universe works are to be read by anyone at all, as it took nearly eighty years and an incredible stroke of luck for Abner's hidden cache of science fiction to be discovered. Indeed, the entirety of this new work was found quite by accident, in a sealed evidence file in the archives of the Washington Police Department in the summer of 2014, where they had remained hidden since before the chief's death in July of 1935. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the curious clerk that saved the collection, consisting of over 1400 pages of notes and partially-finished manuscripts, from the literal trash heap, as the municipal department offices were being closed during a merger with county law enforcement. The Washington, Georgia police department is no more, but Henry Abner's work will be preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.

In the words of an early Abner protagonist, "Here's to you, anonymous savior!"
