Edward Hoornaert penned five intriguing sci-fi/romance stories that we can all relate to. My personal favorite was To Cry in Zero G and the story of how lust turns to caring. A beautiful woman who is ready to sacrifice her dignity because she feels guilty and a dying man who has yearned for her touch — the poignant time they spend together is guaranteed to leave an imprint on your heart.
In the future, love will get even tougher . . . Set out on a journey into tomorrow in five short stories that explore how love can sometimes sting, sometimes heal—and always transform the mind.
To Cry in Zero G
A spaceman wins the woman of his dreams . . . too late.
A stranded time-traveler searches for the love he abandoned in the past.
A crook invents a new form of pornography, but it teaches him about love. Not sex.
Audition at Sexsmith Station
A woman crosses the galaxy for revenge. But revenge isn’t as simple as she expected.
Funeral in a Teriyaki Cathedral
A man pursues his beloved beyond death, but finds only the evil in his own heart.

Mask of Deceit by Paul Zunckel
Juliana’s world is turned upside down when her husband, Paul, is brutally murdered in the darkness of an alleyway in Venice. She is raped and left for dead while the sounds of the Masked Carnival fill the air.
The only thing that keeps Juliana going is the memories of a perfect love, and her deep desire for vengeance.
With the help of her father, the killers are tracked down, one by one, and on the anniversary of Paul’s death, with the sounds of the Carnival in the background, the killers come face to face with the Mask of Deceit, and pay the ultimate price at the hands of a woman who is dead inside.
“edge of my seat, escalating heartbeat kind of story”
“I’ve read Paul Zunckel’s Blood Moon Trilogy, and The Devil in Eden. Mask of Deceit is different from those but just as satisfying. His descriptive phrasing drew me right into the scenes all while enjoying the edge of my seat, escalating heartbeat kind of story he has written here!
