   3rd World Products, Book 9

Ed's old girlfriend Selena calls to plead for help with her aunt Jessie, who's moved in with her and is driving her nuts. He agrees to at least try to help, but there's one small problem; like Selena's mother Joanie, Jessie still hates Ed for the years he kept Selena from "from finding a husband her own age who'd give her children."
Just when he seems to be making some headway in that matter, 3rd World receives a video of Dr. James Hannity Felton being executed Hamas-style and Linda launches a manhunt that ranges from Seattle to the mountains of North Carolina in the dead of winter.
During the hunt a new AI is 'born' who constructs herself to resemble a gorgeous movie star, but refuses to name herself. As it becomes apparent to Ed and the lovely Ms. Nameless that everyone is searching for the wrong person in the wrong places, they strike out on their own to look for answers and the real killer. -06/2006

3rd World Products, Book 1

Ed had learned a long time ago that when things seem too good to be true, they usually are, but when the spaceship showed up over the Florida coast and he met one of the aliens--tall, blonde, lovely, and indisputably female--it was a lesson he had to keep reminding himself to remember. What exactly did the Amarans want or need from Earth or her inhabitants, and why were a couple of intelligence agencies suddenly interested in a semi-retired former mercenary?
Spot Review by author Katherine Kreuger:
An irreverent, funny, fast-paced and sexy series, 3rd World Products Inc. is a thoroughly refreshing change from the doom and gloom apocolyptic Cyberpunk infesting so much of today's hard SF.

A minor diplomat's difficult daughter is missing in Germany. German cops and the American MP's have written her off as a runaway, but finding a cache of drugs and money pits her mother and Ed Cade against both the "good" guys and the bad.
I've looked at e-books from the beginning as an impractical, and probably doomed, way of getting one's work out to the public. BUT...

It's good stuff, presented with a sense of humor. I ended up ordering the CD, God forgive me. (but it was cheap) - Bill Penrose

KIM Semi-Fiction

Kim was Ed Cade's own personal goddess. In his world, there could be only her pleasure to which to aspire...
But change is inevitable when your wife is in the Army, and their paradise ends when it overtakes Cade and Kim.
While seeking a way to remain in Europe with Kim, Ed Cade is recruited into a career for which he is eminently suited; he accepts a position with a certain intelligence agency. His newfound status as a spook displeases many -- including Kim.
Through break-ups and reunions, in danger and good-times, for excitement or love, with his goddess or other women, the reader follows Ed Cade from Texas to Virginia to Europe. From nightclubs to Emergency Rooms, archeological digs to mansions, and beaches to bedrooms, Ed's adventures explore both the US in the aftermath of Vietnam and Germany during the cold war.
With his distinctive style and voice, Ed Howdershelt brings us a story packed with situations -- sensual and personal -- which will hook readers early and usher them in to the inner place where it is they who live the moments, feel the emotions, enjoy the triumphs, and suffer the failures.
It becomes they who have loved and lost, who once held and will forever remember... Kim.
