Sci-Fi Pinups: Mr. & Miss August 2012

PinCushion Welcome back to another installment of Sci-Fi and Fantasy Pinups, the monthly segment that keeps you coming back for more hunks, hotties, and Oxford commas.

Apologies for putting these up late. I could give you a bunch of silly excuses as to why, but I won’t. The truth is, I finished that novel I sometimes talk about and, once it was over, I was exhausted. Exhausted, but excited. The Spouse-ditor is combing it through now and I’m thrilled to say you’re going to be able to read it in the next couple of months. It’s called THE FOURTH CHANNEL, about the world’s worst necromancer and her talking sacrificial knives. The best I can describe it is Anita Blake meets Stephanie Plum, and contains all the things you’ve come to love on my blog. The book has humor, danger, kick-ass fight scenes, ex-girlfriends, prophecies about toothpaste, evil voodoo masters, and more. I think you’re going to love it.

And next week I’m going to reveal the cover. Maybe I’ll post the first chapter for you, too? Not a bad idea. So stay tuned for more about THE FOURTH CHANNEL.

If this is your first time stopping by for the pin-ups, welcome! You can find links to previous months on July’s pinups, as well as an attempt at cheesy puns.

Puns are not my forte.

And now for the pinups!

Miss August is a bounty hunter with sass. After spending half a century in cryogenic sleep, she’s back and she’s bad. She’s also broke. When she’s not cruising around the universe looking for a scumbag with a price tag on their head, she’s conning, conniving, and swindling the best. She is…

Faye Valentine

…Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop!

Miss August’s turn-ons include double-crossing you, double-crossing your friends, stealing your money, stealing your bounty, and cool purple hair. Turn-offs include being handcuffed to toilets and finding out the bounty on her head is a measly 6 million wulongs.

If you decide to ask Miss August out on a date, well, you’d better just hand your wallet over and call it a night.

Mr. August comes to us from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. He’s a savvy businessman in charge of a floating city. He’s also a swindler and a scoundrel, and lost the fastest hunk-of-junk in the galaxy in a card game. He is…

Lando Calrissian

…Lando Calrissian from Star Wars!

Mr. August’s turn-ons are double-crossing you, setting your friends up as bait, wearing spectacularly fabulous capes, and princesses from Alderaan. His turn-offs include altering your deals, being shot at by people blinded by carbon freeze, and the Empire.

If you decide to hit the town with Mr. August, you’d better have a back-up plan in case of being double-crossed.

  1. I love Lando! He’s so capealicious! I mean, that’s potentially the best photo of Lando EVAR!

    I don’t know the other chick, I’ll have to check her out. I mean, watch the movie, or something.



  2. Lando and Faye! Both are great choices. I wish I was half as smooth as Lando (Billy Dee too).

    Also congrats on finishing the novel. It sounds intriguing! I mean, how can you be bad at necromancy? Things just stay dead instead of coming back to life?
