by Ryan Attard

>>>For a limited time you can get additional Pandora Chronicles material and a Free Starter Library. Simply copy and paste this link on your browser to find out more >>http://ryanattard.com/free-stuff-pandora-2/ <<<

Secrets Uncovered

A nomadic alien species found itself trapped on a new-born Earth billions of years ago. And they were here just long enough to leave a legacy behind – buried in our DNA.

1713 – Captain Jack Finnegan’s remarkable success as a privateer gets him the attention of the Order, a secret society with only one mission: finding an ancient alien artifact and hiding it away. Finnegan will need all of his wits, resources, and newfound mysterious abilities, to survive his quest.

2012 – Famous archaeologist Nick Solomon find himself caught in an NSA Black Ops investigation to locate an ancient and powerful relic that could potentially change the world as we know it. Blackmailing Nick into working with them, he has to face off against Astrid, a Spanish crime lord who will stop at nothing to get the artifact first.
Also helping Nick is the beautiful and deadly Agent Excalibur, a lethal secret agent from Nick’s past… a past he is trying so hard to forget.

Join Nick Solomon in his biggest adventure yet, as he explores ancient conspiracies, people with strange abilities, and mysterious alien technology.

Interview with the Author

Q – What makes The Pandora Chronicles so unique?
A – The Pandora Chronicles is primarily an action-adventure thriller series, with elements of science fiction sprinkled around.
The story primarily follows archeologist Nick Solomon as he hunts for clues to a mysterious location that houses a legendary artifact with mysterious powers. Along the journey he gets roped into helping a secret underground government agency and meets Agent Excalibur, a secret agent from Nick’s past.

Throughout the course of the adventure Nick explores his own past, his upbringing in a bizarre cult, as well as something that makes him special – something not quite human…

Q – What inspired you to create The Pandora Chronicles?
A – Each of the parts in the book take place in a different time. The Prologue, where the aliens show up to witness the birth of the planet, was inspired by a Discovery Channel documentary.

Part 1 of the story tells the story of Captain Jack Finnegan, a privateer turned pirate, and that was inspired by my own love of pirates (who doesn’t love pirates) and my university thesis.

Part 2, the main adventure, was inspired by Assassins Creed and Uncharted, as well as Tomb Raider, The Librarian, and of course, Indiana Jones. I think of Nick Solomon as a mix of all those, but with a larger ego, a dapper sense of fashion and more prone to sarcasm.

Q – Can we get more?
A – Sure you can! There are at least 5 books in series but while you wait for the next one, you should check out the link above or in brackets here (http://eepurl.com/bHSkSf) and sign up to my exclusive mailing list. You’ll get TWO character profiles, one for Nick Solomon and Agent Excalibur respectively, and get to read all about their individual pasts.

Platoon F: Pentalogy

by John P. Logsdon

Hilarity and absurdity on an intergalactic scale …

Not intended for children. Contains adult themes/situations/language and is positively not politically correct!

This bundle gives you missions 1 – 5 from the hilarious Platoon F series. You’ll get space ships, space marines, robots, androids, impossible technology, time travel, alien races, and good old-fashioned military insanity slapped together on a tapestry of futuristic mayhem.

Mission 1: The SSMC Reluctant
Lieutenant Orion Murphy is scheduled for execution due to a clerical error. His only out is to undergo a complete physical makeover, get a rank and name change, and agree to take over a new platoon in the Segnal Space Marine Corps (SSMC). Seeing that it’s a case of comply or die, he accepts the offer. A week later, he finds himself standing on the bridge of The SSMC Reluctant with a misfit crew, an insane special agent, an antiquated robot mechanic, and his updated identity.

Will the newly-named Commodore Don Harr be able to get control of the ship and crew? Can they all survive their first mission, especially since they’re not really supposed to? And who came up with this mission, anyway?

…it all makes Harr wonder if execution may have been the better option.

Mission 2: Angry Robots
A group of antiquated robots have decided that they’ve had enough of being treated like second-class citizens. Working together, they take over the sewage plant on Segnal Prime and start pumping the sludge back up into the buildings. Captain Don Harr and his team of misfit androids must traverse the underground tunnel systems, take on dog-sized sewer rats, and wrestle control of the plant back while trying to maintain a semblance of sanity as they slosh through loads of crap.

Sometimes it’s abundantly clear what the “F” in Platoon F truly means.

Mission 3: The SSMC Voyeur
A space probe that was sent out 500 years ago has returned…sort of. It’s actually a copy of the original model of The SSMC Voyeur, which begs the question: What happened to the original craft?

The crew of The SSMC Reluctant is dispatched to learn about the originating planet that sent this cloned vehicle. And, if Rear Admiral Conster gets his way, they’re also to blow the entire planet that it came from to smithereens.

Mission 4: Earthlings
After their last mission, the Segnal Space Marine Corps (SSMC) saw the value of the GONE Drive. The ability to move through space in a blink of an eye would be highly appealing to any military body, but specifically to Rear Admiral Parfait who has a bit of a thing for military bodies.

Follow the crew as they hit the Middle Ages, the Mesozoic era, the 1940s, and 2400s of Earth.

Mission 5: Synthetic DNA
After a close call in the year 2440 at the planet called “Earth,” the crew of The SSMC Reluctant makes a quick escape back to their home of Segnal. However, Geezer didn’t have time to set the clock on the GONE Drive to return them back to their own era, and things have changed greatly in the Segnal System over the past 500 years.

The system is ruled by Synthetic Lifeforms now, and they find humans and standard robots an affront to their intellectual capacity. From their perspective, only Synthetic Lifeforms should be allowed to live.

Platoon F gets its influence as a hodgepodge from Monty Python, National Lampoon, Family Guy, Red Dwarf, Phule’s Company, Robert Asprin, Airplane!, Naked Gun, Douglas Adams, Harry Harrison, and countless other comedic mediums. Readers will find a new, fun, comedic SciFi world to play in. Aliens, robots, androids, space marines, time travel, galactic mayhem, and more fill the universe of Platoon F.

Set in current day Orlando, Florida, before the long Fourth of July weekend, the Evolution of the Dead begins.

The latest in a long line of such wars for the Kingdom of Soulan.

Enter Parno McLeod, third son of King Tammon McLeod, who is unloved by his family and laughed at by the nobility. A brawling, drinking, womanizing playboy still in his teens, the common soldiers and people love Parno because he doesn’t preen and pretend and Parno loves his people and his Land, even though he doesn’t love his family.

The Man Who Rocked the Earth

by Arthur Train

THE MAN WHO ROCKED THE EARTH
“I thought, too, of the first and most significant realization which the reading of astronomy imposes: that of the exceeding delicacy of the world’s position; how, indeed, we are dependent for life, and all that now is, upon the small matter of the tilt of the poles; and that we, as men, are products, as it were, not only of earth’s precarious position, but of her more precarious tilt.”â??W. L. Comfort, Nov., 1914
