Tales of New Earth Three

by raymond halyard

TALES OF NEW EARTH is a sci-fi novel about human colonization of a true â??water planet’ – a planet that is almost totally covered with water. There are no ice caps and only the tops of a few active volcanoes protrude above the sea. The colonists will therefore have to live on floating dwellings like the Hong Kong â??boat people’ and make their living from the world ocean. Since there are no land animals, there were no mammals (e.g., seals, dolphins or whales) or birds (e.g., penguins) whose ancestors returned to the sea. The only life forms on the planet are marine creatures similar to microbes (such as phytoplankton), plants (such as algae) and animals (such as mollusks, crustaceans and fish) on Earth. If there are any intelligent creatures on New Earth Three, they will be very exceptional and bazaarâ?¦

Atlas Of Arcadia

by Nick Reed

The future was stolen. Ideology overtook common sense and with it all human compassion. Complete and total freedom has shackled all but the very few to a life of debt and slavery. Even the very capable and bright suffer under the iron fist of corporate dominance. In this game the winners have won long ago. One individual abandoned at a young age and fleeing for his life, is about to turn the world on its head:
Atlas awoke feeling damp. He turned slowly to his left and noticed a few metres away a brown rabbit was munching quietly. Atlas knew he wasn’t going back to that world. If he wanted to belong he had to make his own world; and in this instant his world required food. He slipped his hand into his pocket and unsheathed the knife. He decided he could either run up on the rabbit, stab it or throw the knife. If he ran to the rabbit, it would very likely run for cover and he would lose his breakfast; however, if he threw the knife it might spin in the air and merely strike the rabbit with the handle.
The rock caved in the head of the rabbit instantly. Atlas had thrown a large one from his position in an overarm motion at great speed, which didn’t allow the rabbit to escape in time. He stood over it and rolled the rock back with his shoe; it was unpleasant to see the splattered skull so Atlas removed it swiftly and drained the blood. He cut out the lower bowels to avoid contamination; something he had read about, but he couldn’t picture the book it had been in.
He didn’t have any means to cook this meat, so for now he carried the rabbit by its hind legs onwards northwest. His plan was to reach Almaty city. Hopefully he would be able to disappear among the hundreds of people, and find an orphanage like the ones he’d read about.

With supplies dwindling, Dillon and the crew of the Borealis find themselves in a race against time to solve a centuries-old mystery.  Can they stop an ancient enemy from being unleashed?  Or are all the planets of the galaxy destined to become burnt worlds?

Time’s Anchor

by Lynda Engler

Closed City

The Martian Ones: Tales of Human Folly

by Gabriel Hugo

Contrary to “The Martian” by Andy Weir in which Matt Damon resolves to “science the shit out of this,” these characters have a much bleaker outcome on Mars because of the company they keep…other humans.


The mission to Mars is doomed. Just like the mission to Earth has been a colossal failure. We had one job to do when God (or the aliens) put us here on this planet: team work. Instead, we are at the brink of extinction.

This book explores scenarios about the way in which humanity botches the proposed mission to colonize Mars through a series of tales of human folly.

From an evil scientist bent on creating a human/alien race to kill off and replace people, Martian pioneers lost in space, and Martian colonists murdering and raping in the absence of law and order–to cannibalism, public executions, and a zombie virus outbreak that infects everyone all the way up to the President of the United States.

It seems that no scenario is favorable for humanity’s dream of reaching the stars other than, perhaps, by ceasing to be human altogether.



Half-Lives

by Jason Dias

One Last Flight: Book One Of The Holy Terran Empire

by Carlos Carrasco

Gaelic of Arkum is an outlaw, a smuggler more at home on his ship the Strumpet, than he is on any of the thousand worlds of civilized space. Gaelic of Arkum is an ex-junkie, a former fighter pilot and a traitor to the Federation of Free Planets which he once served. An escaped prisoner wanted dead or alive by two galactic super powers, Gaelic hides behind an assumed identity while scratching a living for himself working for a ruthless warlord.

And Gaelic of Arkum is dying, entering the end stage of the always terminal Transuranic Cancer.

All he wants to do with the little time left him is to drop off his last load, get paid and hole up in his favorite cat house for a week before shoving off into space again for his rendezvous with oblivion. The last thing Gaelic wants to do is revisit his sordid past. But that long-buried past comes a-knocking anyway, stripping away his alias, exposing his true self and luring him back to the source of all his miseries.

The revelation propels Gaelic down a harrowing path in search of the only woman he has ever loved, the only woman he hates; the lover who abandoned him to humiliation and slavery. Along the way, Gaelic must contend with former comrades of the Federation Forces who would see him hanged for treason, homicidal AIs of the Psion Collective and the Imperial Knights Templar, whose zeal for their Faith and their Holy Terran Empire threatens to consume him in the first fires of an intergalactic war.

It’s all enough to make Gaelic of Arkum wonder who he has to kill to be able to die in peace.

One Last Flight is the first installment in a new and exciting Space Opera Series. It is a thrilling tale of Adventure, Love and Redemption in the shadow of War!
