Underwater aliens – Time travel – Coups – Con games – and Murder?

Welcome to the world of Alibi Jones!

Come along for the ride as Humankind expands out into the already populated stars. Alibi is a Mediator for The Solar Alliance in 2135, negotiating treaties and agreements between humankind and alien races, whose big heart and inquisitive mind usually get him into trouble along the way.

Includes the new short story "Alibi Jones: Christmas Present", written and released for Mike Luoma's 500th Episode of his Glow-in-the-Dark Radio science fiction podcast.

In "Father's Day" - Flash back 23 years to the fatal, fateful day Alibi met his father, Bernard Campion - the Vatican Assassin.

"Blind Eye" - Alibi's Aunt Anita asks him to attend a political social event on her behalf, where Alibi discovers there's more to a new colonial venture than meets the eye.

"Vacation" – Needing a vacation, Alibi and Katie visit Kit on the planet "Paradise." But instead of an idyllic Eden, Alibi and Katie find a coup erupting, and get caught in the crossfire of a power struggle for control of the young colony.

"Alibi Jones In Over His Head" - Alibi is trying to negotiate humankind's initial trade agreement with the aquatic race known as the Kee'Klick. It's not going well.

"The Wishing Stone" - When the enigmatic Finder sends Alibi off to find an old alien relic known as the "Wishing Stone", Alibi discovers 'being careful what you wish for' isn't just an old cliché.

And in "Christmas Present" – Alibi's Aunt asks Alibi to find a Christmas Tree, but an accidental trip finds Alibi instead in mortal danger, his life threatened by people he thought he knew.

Enjoy these shorter Adventures of Alibi Jones, adapted from his comic book exploits for prose readers, featuring new adaptations of "Blind Eye" and "Alibi Jones in Over His Head" written exclusively for this edition. With cover art by Federico Guillen.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
