Ashes of the Fall (The Remnants Trilogy Book 1)

by Nicholas Erik

Sometimes the fall is only the beginning.

In the year 2048, the crumbling remnants of western North America are suddenly buried in ash, weakening the grip of the brutal dictatorship. A factional landscape springs from the ashes, con man Luke Stokes artfully navigating the clash.

But he can’t remain above the fray for long, as each faction seeks the truth from Luke regarding his murdered brother’s final project. A neural-interface technology that will forever shift the fragile balance of the ashen plains.

With the true believers, desert nomads, survivalists and existing regime closing in, Luke must delve deeper into his genius brother’s secrets. And the truth about his last project will dramatically alter the remnants of civilization.

Because the fall isn’t always the end – sometimes, it’s only the beginning.

Seamlessly merging thought-provoking philosophical ideas with page-burning action, ASHES OF THE FALL is the first novel in the dystopian/post-apocalyptic Remnants Trilogy.



Dead End Journal (Dead End Chronicles Book 1)

by Alexandre Santantonio de Lyra

Dana is a young girl living in the aftermath of a global crisis that nearly wiped out the entire human race. No one knows what happened exactly. The climate became chaotic, wars broke out, governments fell and a mysterious disease spread through the land like a hellish plague, turning people into monsters. Now, there’s no more television, no more phones, no laws or police… some would go as far as to say there’s no more hope. For all Dana knows, she could quite possibly be living in the last remaining human town in the world. And to make matters worse, her father disappeared on a hunting trip never to be seen again. With a baby brother to provide for, she doesn’t have the luxury of just giving up. As her eighteenth birthday approaches, not only must she find her place in this crazy world, but also earn her place as an adult within the community. Thankfully, she is not entirely alone in her struggle. Love and friendship will play an important role in her growth, but will it be enough to guarantee her survival? As Dana sits down to write her own chronicle, she knows all too well that nothing is certain in the broken world of the Dead End Journal.

Fibers (The Infiltration Trilogy Book 1)

by Jennifer-Crystal Johnson

Anna Reynolds is caught up in the middle of a secret interdimensional government agreement… and she doesn’t even know it.

There’s a medical anomaly loosely dubbed Morgellons disease afflicting a number of people. Symptoms include open sores that produce colorful string-like fibers, fatigue, and nightmarish visions of shadowy figures.

No one knows where it came from.

No one knows what causes it. There is no cure.

When Anna begins having nightmares and waking hallucinations of the shadow people, her uneasiness about her condition grows. Enlisting the help of her doctor and some friends, Anna is determined to find out what’s really going on and why Morgellons is such a mystery.

With her health declining and doubts about whom she can trust, is Anna doomed to become a slave to her condition? Or will she and her unlikely group of would-be heroes come through, saving her… and, ultimately, the world?



Enigma

by David E. Johnston

A group of strangers awake in a massive, mysterious place, with no recollection of how they got there, or who they are. To make matters worse, an unstoppable flesh-craving monster hunts them from the shadows of every corridor. As they explore the confines of their ‘cage’, memories of their past start to resurface, giving them insight as to their collective purpose for being there, and their own interpersonal relationships. Together, they attempt to unravel the mysteries of their surroundings and avoid the creature, before paranoia and hysteria divide them, and tear them apart.

Over 400 pages of suspense and mystery detail the journey of discovery the group makes as they ascend their way towards the top of their metallic ‘prison’, seeking escape. A thriller with a definite hard sci-fi edge!



Afterland

by Masha Leyfer

“We wait. We fight. We train. It seems that an entire life can pass like this. But it can’t. We must move. We must go on. We must continue.

The future is uncertain. The future is terrifying.

But there is no other way.

Always move forward, Mike had told me once.

So we do.”



A Modern Utopia

by H.G. Wells

While walking in the Swiss Alps, two English travellers fall into a space-warp, and suddenly find themselves in another world. In many ways the same as our own – even down to the characters that inhabit it – this new planet is still somehow radically different, for the two walkers are now upon a Utopian Earth controlled by a single World Government. Here, as they soon learn, all share a common language, there is sexual, economic and racial equality, and society is ruled by socialist ideals enforced by an austere, voluntary elite: the â??Samurai’. But what will the Utopians make of these new visitors from a less perfect world?



Omega, the Man

by Lowell Morrow

THE silver airship cut swiftly through the hot thin air. The noonday sun blazed down upon it and the desert world below. All about was the solemn silence of death. No living thing appeared either in the air or on the drab, gray earth. Only the aircraft itself displayed any signs of life. The sky, blue as indigo, held not the shadow of a cloud, and on the horizon the mountains notched into it like the teeth of a giant saw.
The airship finally came to a hovering stop, then dropped rapidly toward the salt-encrusted plain. It came to rest at last on the bottom of a great, bowl-shaped hollow situated at the end of a chasm whose gray, rock-strewn sides rose in rugged terraces for miles back into the sky. In a few moments a panel in the vessel’s side rolled noiselessly upward, disclosing a brilliant light, and from the interior of the airship soon appeared two figures who paused at the aperture and gazed out over the parched earth. Then without fear or visible effortâ??although they were seventy-five feet above the groundâ??they emerged from the ship and floated down to earth.
These two humansâ??the sole survivors of all earth’s childrenâ??were man and wifeâ??Omega and Thalma. They were burned a deep cherry by the fierce rays of the sun. In stature they were above the average man now on earth. Their legs were slender and almost fleshless, because for many centuries man had ceased to walk. Their feet were mere toeless protuberances attached to the ankle bone. Their arms were long and as spare as their legs, but their hands, although small, were well-proportioned and powerful. Their abdominal regions were very small, but above them were enormous chests sheltering lungs of tremendous power, for thus nature had armored man against the rarefaction of the earth’s atmosphere. But the most remarkable parts about this truly remarkable couple were there massive heads set upon short, slim necks. The cranial development was extraordinary, their bulging foreheads denoting great brain power. Their eyesâ??set wide apartâ??were large and round, dark and luminous with intelligence and their ears were remarkably large, being attuned to all the music and voices of life. While their nostrils were large and dilated, their mouths were very small, though sensuous and full-lipped. They were entirely hairlessâ??for even the eyebrows and the eyelashes of man had entirely disappeared ages before. And when they smiled they betrayed no gleam of teeth, for nature had long discarded teeth in man’s evolution.
The great, silver ship of the sky now rested in a deep pocket on the floor of an ancient sea. Millions of years, under the sucking energy of the sun and the whip of many winds, had sapped its waters, until only a shallow, brackish lake remained. Along the shores of this lake, which covered scarcely more than a hundred acres, a rim of yellowish, green grass followed the water’s edge and struggled against the inevitable, and here and there among the grasses flowers of faded colors and attenuated foliage reared their heads bravely in the burning sunshine. And this lone lake, nestled in the lowest spot among the mountains and valleys which once floored the Pacific, now held the last of earth’s waters. Barren and lifeless the rest of the world baked under a merciless sun.



Planet of Dread

by Murray Leinster

Moran cut apart the yard-long monstrosity with a slash of flame. The thing presumably died, but it continued to writhe senselessly. He turned to see other horrors crawling toward him. Then he knew he was being marooned on a planet of endless terrors.



Deathworld

by Harry Harrison

Some planet in the galaxy mustâ??by definitionâ??be the toughest, meanest, nastiest of all. If Pyrrus wasn’t it … it was an awfully good approximation!

When Worlds Collide: Volume Six of Six (The Luna Chronicles Book 6)

by Philip Wik

The fanaticism of mass movements is the greatest problem of our times. It becomes an especially potent problem when it is fused with religion or science. It cuts across history, politics, and psychology. And it has brought death and misery more than words can tell. This book gives answer to the question that Yeats raises: “And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?” The rough beast of fanaticism is always slouching to us. And it will destroy until it is destroyed. This problem is ripped from our headlines and will challenge us until time adjourns. “Between the idea/And the reality/Between the motion/And the act/Falls the Shadow” T.S. Eliot says in The Hollow Men. The Gospel of Matthias is a book of shadows. It explores the twilight and the tension between faith and fanaticism and science and scientism. The Gospel of Matthias puts into fictional form this problem.

The Gospel of Mathias has three related novels. The great themes of science, religion, love, coming-of-age, and courage unfold in a world of brains in vats, global extinction from a comet, animal-human hybrids, and interstellar and time travel. As you read the chronicles, you’ll connect with Julie and her daughter Selene on their life’s journey as they confront their deepest fears and greatest challenges.

Here is a synopsis of the books.

Book One: A Brain in the Vat (Volumes One and Two)

A new religious cult is sweeping the nation. Tom, a Chicago reporter, is investigating the church for its terrorist ties. The worship of the goddess Luna is attracting Julie, his girl friend. Intrigue in Asia and the Middle East that threatens to plunge the world into another world war entangles them. Their curiosity eventually leads Tom and Julie to a laboratory where Dr. James Evans curates living heads in glass jars.

Book Two: Global Extinction (Volumes Three and Four)

The church is now facing the greatest challenge of its existence along with the rest of the world. A comet the size of the moon will destroy the Earth in a month. Global Extinction is the story of Julie and her fifteen year-old daughter Selene as they travel from Michigan to Washington, D.C., confronting along the way rape, cannibalism, child sacrifice, and radiation poisoning.

Book Three: The War of the Hybrids (Volumes Five and Six)

It’s the year 2026 with moon colonies and space travel. Julie is now the leader of the moon cult and her daughter Selene is a twenty-five year old West Point graduate. Evans’ research has taken a dark turn with animal-human hybrids. These hybrids are exterminating humanity. The final world war has reached its climax in space and on Earth.

“The Gospel of Matthias has everything: thrills, action, love, horror, coming-of-age, satire, and science fantasy. Written with the feeling of a poet and the vision of an architect, this epic has strong characterization, a well-developed plot, and relishes the romance of ideas. It’s a story that connects with us. The fears and passions of Julie and Selene on their life’s journey become our fears and passions.”



Spawn of the Comet

by H. Thompson Rich

A swarm of huge, fiery ants, brood of a mystery comet, burst from their shells to threaten the unsuspecting world.



Millenium

by Everett Cole

There are devices a high-level culture could produce that simply don’t belong in the hands of incompetents of lower cultural evolution. The finest, and most civilized of tools can be made a menace …



Nightmare Planet

by Murray Leinster

The Directory-ship Tethys made the first landing on the planet, L21612. It was a goodly world, with an ample atmosphere and many seas, which the nearby sun warmed so lavishly that a perpetual cloud-bank hid them and all the solid ground from view. It had mountains and islands and high plateaus. It had day and night and rain. It had an equable climate, rather on the tropical side. But it possessed no life.

No animals roamed its solid surface. No vegetation grew from its rocks. Not even bacteria struggled with the stones to turn them into soil. No living thing, however small, swam in its oceans. It was one of that disappointing vast majority of otherwise admirable worlds which was unsuited for colonization solely because it had not been colonized before. It could be used for biological experiments in a completely germ-free environment, or ships could land upon it for water and supplies of air. The water was pure and the air breathable, but it had no other present utility. Such was the case with an overwhelming number of Earth-type planets when first discovered in the exploration of the galaxy. Life simply hadn’t started there.

So the ship which first landed upon it made due note for the Galactic Directory and went away, and no other ship came near the planet for eight hundred years.

But nearly a millennium later, the Seed-Ship Orana arrived. It landed and carefully seeded the useless world. It circled endlessly above the clouds, dribbling out a fine dust comprised of the spores of every conceivable microorganism that could break down rock to powder and turn the powder to organic matter. It also seeded with moulds and fungi and lichens, and everything that could turn powdery primitive soil into stuff on which higher forms of life could grow. The Orana seeded the seas with plankton. Then it, too, went away.

Centuries passed. Then the Ecological Preparation Ship Ludred swam to the planet from space. It was a gigantic ship of highly improbable construction and purpose. It found the previous seeding successful. Now there was soil which swarmed with minute living things. There were fungi which throve monstrously. The seas stank of teeming minuscule life-forms. There were even some novelties on land, developed by strictly local conditions. There were, for example, paramecium as big as grapes, and yeasts had increased in size so that they bore flowers visible to the naked eye. The life on the planet was not aboriginal, though. It had all been planted by the seed-ship of centuries before.



Day of the Moron

by H. Beam Piper

It’s natural to trust the unproven word of the fellow who’s “on my side”â??but the emotional moron is on no one’s side, not even his own. Once, such an emotional moron could, at worst, hurt a few. But with the mighty, leashed forces Man employs now….



Drake and the Fliers

by Allison Maruska

Sixteen-year-old Drake can’t understand why the virus spared him. The only survivors he’s seen vandalized his makeshift dwelling, and despite his sister’s dying wish that he connect with others, he spends his days alone – that is, until he shapeshifts into a dragon.

While exploring his new abilities, Drake nearly flies into Preston, another shifter. Their chances of survival increase if they team up with others like them, but when their search leads to a group in Las Vegas, they find not everyone is welcoming.

As Drake develops new relationships, Preston endures daily confrontation and eventually takes off on his own. Concerned for his friend’s safety, Drake launches a search and stumbles into a situation stranger than anything he could imagine. Now he must embrace his animalism if he wants to save his humanity.

“Maruska does a stellar job of creating believable characters that are flawed and relatable but also admirable in their determination.” – Allison Gammons, author and blogger for Eclectic Alli



First Contact: Even The Stars Know (First Contact, Alien Contact, Space Exploration, Science Fiction Adventure, Mystery)

by Tim Dovek

One hundred years of deep space exploration. Captain Johannsen and her crew start to experience mysterious situations after sighting an unexplained object.

Jackson Chase stared into a vast emptiness. The round viewports in the crew lounge were exactly a half foot thick, comprised of aluminum silicate and layers of gorilla glass crafted by the Corning company back on Earth. The cushions of his recliner had automatically fitted themselves to his body contours like they always did. He had comfort and quiet and all of his needs provided for by the food processors, and the cleansing station, and the entertainment consoles. It was everything a man could ever want. Including amazing views.

Everything, except companionship.

It had now been twenty-four days since he’d been woken up by the mercilessly efficient onboard computer. It kept the systems on the DSS Armstrong running like clockwork. It was the most advanced computer humans had ever created, and Jackson still wanted to slam it against the wall like an old-fashioned alarm clock so he could go back to sleep.

One hundred years in deep space would be too much for any man to take by himself without very long naps in between. Like hibernating bears who only woke up when they found something interesting to look at.

Out here, there was very little that could be called interesting.

He ran a hand through the short bristles of his sandy brown hair and relaxed more into his chair while he thought about those two little words, deep space. This was the furthest that human beings had ever gone from Earth. Lightyears from the familiar constellations of home. But no matter how deep they went, there was still more. More space. More emptiness. Moreâ?¦nothing.

Even the stars know is a short story about first contact and experiencing our inner space in deep space exploration.

I will never be the same, and the world will bear witness to that change.

A field trip to Washington D.C., what could happen?

Devil’s Asteroid

by Manly Wellman

It was not very large, as asteroids go, but about it clung a silvery mist of atmosphere. Deeper flashes through the mist betokened water, and green patches hinted of rich vegetation. The space-patroller circled the little world knowledgeably, like a wasp buzzing around an apple. In the control room, by the forward ports, the Martian skipper addressed his Terrestrial companion.
“I wissh you joy of yourr new home,” he purred. Like many Martians, he was braced upright on his lower tentacles by hoops and buckles around his bladdery body, so that he had roughly a human form, over which lay a strange loose armor of light plates. In the breathing hole of his petal-tufted skull was lodged an artificial voice-box that achieved words. “I rregrretâ??”
Fitzhugh Parr glowered back. He was tall, even for a man of Earth, and his long-jawed young face darkened with wrath. “Regret nothing,” he snapped. “You’re jolly glad to drop me on this little hell.”
“Hell?” repeated the Martian reproachfully. “But it iss a ssplendid miniaturre worrldâ??nineteen of yourr miless in diameterr, with arrtificial grravity centerr to hold airr and waterr; ssown, too, with Terresstrrial plantss. And companionss of yourr own rrace.”

Story 1 – APOCALYPSE – UNDERWATER CITY
by Chrissy Peebles

***This is a 15,000 word novella***

This series does have dark moments and is intended for mature audiences only.

BOOK TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF9UkY0qiSo

I’m a survivor, living in a post-apocalyptic world. I live deep in the ocean and that’s how we all survived the world’s greatest catastrophe known to man. I’d often dreamt of a normal life, but sadly, that wasn’t what fate had in store for me.

Where do I even begin? Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?

My name is Sky Hammons, and this is my story. It’s actually quite like my name, because it is a tale of hope, faith, and new beginningsâ??like a bright, blue summer sky. Or at least that was what I’d wished for, back when I was naïve and clueless enough to believe it. I really wish my journey could be summed up like that, and at first, it seemed like that might be the case. But then that bright sky darkened, and things fell apart. As if Chicken Little’s fears were coming true, my blue sky shattered. They say “The truth will set you free,” but I can’t say I believe thatâ??at least not anymore. In my case, the bitter truth shook me to my very core. I never would have imagined that life could be so cruel or that people could be so deranged outside of an Alfred Hitchcock script or some awful horror movie, but I learned one thing: Never, ever believe what you’re told.

I’d been hand-fed lies since birth from my so-called government, and like a mindless drone, I’d happily believed every fraudulent word of the garbage they spewed. Maybe I just wanted that warm, fuzzy feeling; their lies comforted me and allowed me to sleep better at night. After all, who doesn’t want peace and hope and goodwill and all those other things splattered in snowy glitter all over the front of Christmas cards?

When I got a little older and started to take a good, close look at the world around me, I began to challenge the world I lived in. I began to realize it wasn’t all marshmallows and unicorns and Norman Rockwell paintings, and I started to ask questions. I’d always hoped for a bright future, but little did I know that absolute terror was lurking just around the corner. As I dug into the unknown, I was confronted by my worst nightmare.

My name is Sky, and this is my story.

On the other side of the galaxy, Admiral Kiith Kohath has an even bigger problemâ??a corrupted cohort of cyborgs intent on pillaging the Assembly systems. Tracking the enemy to the sites of their atrocities, Kohath and his team must piece together the Reavers’ plan and determine their next target, preferably before they have a chance to slaughter yet another defenceless colony.

by B.Y. Yan

It will be a test of old friendships and enduring struggles for the Lynchman’s Owl twenty-years before and after to thwart this attempt at sabotage together.
