Star Marshals: Moons of Jupiter

by Dave Lemel

Since the invention of radio broadcast humans had become noisy. Luckily for the citizens of Earth a benevolent species of alien, known as Bopecans, had been the first to hear the noise. Once they arrived the Bopecans explained that others were out there, they too would be coming and not all of them would be as well intentioned as the Bopecans. Humans needed to be ready. They helped the human race establish an agency to police the solar system and pursue fugitives of it. This agency became known as Star Marshals. Now, nearly forty years after their inception, vague messages have arrived from a mysterious source. These cryptic messages indicate a potentially monumental threat to our solar system. A pair of marshals are dispatched to the moons of Jupiter to investigate.

Star marshals Todd Jordan and Simon Cain have been best friends since college. Now, a first time father to a six month old baby girl, Simon is heading out on his first assignment back after paternity leave. After much soul searching, Simon has decided that this will be his last Off Earth Assignment (O.E.A). What he is uncertain of is how his best friend and partner Todd will take the news.

The Extraction List

by Renee N. Meland

In development for film by 5×5 Productions!

An unforgettable, fast-paced science fiction adventure where a mother and daughter must rely on a gifted killer for survival…

In an America where parenting is regulated by the federal government, fifteen-year-old Riley Crane assumed she would never be taken from her home, and with good reason: her mother Claire had designed the criteria that parents must live by in order to keep their children.
 
But a simple knock at the door one evening proves her wrong.
 
Now on the run, Riley and Claire must rely on Cain Foley, a gifted killer who is as handsome as he is dangerous, to get them out of America alive. But when they discover what’s really happening beneath the government’s surface, they realize that escaping the country is only part of their problem. Together, they figure out that a killer can save a life, and a mother can damn a nation. 

If you’re a fan of Unwind by Neal Shusterman, you will enjoy Renee N. Meland’s page-turning tale of survival in a world where obeying the law is no longer an option.

I, Necrosis

by Ramy Tadros

Winner of the Eric Hoffer Book Award for Best E-Book Fiction 2017

Readers’ Favorite 5-Star Review

Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite: I, Necrosis by Ramy Tadros is a powerful dystopian tale that will surely delight fans of the genre. It is a reign of terror, orchestrated by a globalist government that has very unusual schemes for humanity and the future of the world. The reader is introduced to a character trying to make sense of the dictatorship, but an encounter with a charming individual and a troubling order transform his doubts about the government into serious questions. Follow the protagonist, a very unusual man, as he travels to the very stronghold of the separatist movement, and how he comes upon a secret that is as mind-blowing as it is revealing of a plan that could sink the world.

The very first thing that catches the reader’s attention about this book is the beauty of the language. It feels so poetic and at times cryptic, and the author has style when it comes to exploring the mental agony the protagonist goes through. The psychological depth of this story is poignant, and the author makes powerful and philosophical declarations. “You are just meatâ??nothing but walking rotting meat. The thing that you call ‘I’ does not exist. It is an illusion, a delusion constructed by your brain.” This reduction of being just material, to matter, to that which is tangible, is one of the thoughts beautifully explored in this book and it constitutes one of the strong conflicts the reader is introduced to: faced with imminent extinction, what awaits this fragile humanity?

Ramy Tadros has created a masterpiece in I, Necrosis, a story that begs to be read with attention. It was captivating, and I found myself navigating the dangerous alleys of the protagonist’s mind. This is a novel with multilayered characters and a storyline that is open to multiple interpretations. It’s a must-read, but one must be mentally awake in order to dance to the rhythms evoked in this wonderful story. 5 Stars.

A beautiful story about oppression and the end of life.

Subjugated under a globalist government, a disillusioned subject begins to question the state’s totalitarian authority after stumbling across a charismatic separatist and receiving a mysterious directive.

Following this encounter, the subject travels to the last separatist stronghold, an ancient Coptic medina, where he unearths a terrifying secret agenda: the state’s ultimate technocratic project. He then embarks on a physical, mental, and spiritual journey, forcing him to confront an anguished past, a hopeless present, and a potentially horrifying future.

When life faces its darkest hour, its extinction event, will it survive the ordeal and gain salvation? Or will it fail and forever suffer damnation?



La guerra de los mundos ( AtoZ Classics ) (Spanish Edition)

by H. G. Wells

Las fábulas ideadas por H. G. Wells (1866-1946), uno de los padres, acaso el más notable, de la ciencia ficción, han demostrado a lo largo del tiempo mantener un vigor y tocar unos resortes del inconsciente humano que a menudo las han elevado a iconos del mundo moderno. ‘La guerra de los mundos’ (1898), relato trepidante que narra la invasión de la Tierra por los marcianos y que supuso por primera vez la irrupción de seres de otros planetas en el nuestro, marcó en buena medida la fantasía del siglo XX y abrió un filón â??el del contacto de los hombres con seres extraterrestresâ?? que no tardó en convertirse en uno de los más importantes de la ciencia ficción, sirviendo de inspiración a numerosos artistas posteriores en los ámbitos de la radio, el cine, la literatura, el cómic y la televisión.

Beyond the New Horizon: A Post-Apocalyptic Novel Book One

by Christine Conaway

Their vacation is over, and it’s time to return to civilization, until next year. Three weeks of doing nothing but exploring the wilds of the Idaho mountains on horseback. Gina, Lucy, and Journey had picked the mountains of Idaho this year, using a blindfold, a map of the western United States and a dart. The Lolo National Forest had seemed like the perfect vacation spot, just before hunting season and the trails were open to horse and foot traffic only. It was close, or closer than previous destinations, to their home in Spokane Washington.

After three weeks of riding, camping and exploring they return to their vehicle, only to find it doesn’t start. Unable to contact anyone by cell phone, they are forced to ride out to find help. What they find,
is not what they expected. There would be no help coming. The only living person they found warned them against continuing their quest for assistance. He told of rioting, gangs, and people killing other people trying to survive. He said they needed to run as far and as fast as they could, away from what was left of civilization or become a slave to the wants and needs of the gang of outlaws who had claimed the surrounding area.

Afraid for their lives, they return to the mountains, knowing their chances of survival against mother nature are far better than their chances on the outside, where evil has raised its ugly head, and it was every man for himself, no matter what the cost.
