Wayline: A Science Fiction Novel

by Matthew Shuck

Editorial review: Embrace this adventure of magnitude and scope that expands every time you think there is no more room for expanse.

Wayline is a creative and very compelling story set in a dystopian science fiction world in the near future. A young adult story mixed with elements of mystery, this book has many things that will compel any fan of the genres just mentioned.

Join Hope and her dog Kluuja on an adventure that will never cease to amaze, as you learn about her origin, the deaths of her parents, and her significance in an alien invasion and her role yet to play in the ongoing war against the Wayline invaders.

I found myself wanting to continue reading every time a chapter ended. The rich and various characters were both enriching and interesting, and it made me want to read more from the author. His ideas are original and I cannot wait to see if he will continue the story of Hope and her journey.

From such unique concepts as The Shang to the true intentions of the war that the Wayline began to the growth of Hope as the protagonist, I found myself wanting more and often turning back a few pages to reread some of the ideas and better understand what had just happened.

Matthew is excellent at balancing his themes, story structure, and the arcs of his characters. Keep an eye out for this author, as he is just getting started in his career and he has enormous potential.

Synopsis: After the war that disseminated humanity, Hope is trying to rebuild her world in the shadows of the Wayline Empire. Her task is clear; she must bring a valuable package across the countryside for a mysterious collector. But when she finally arrives, she finds the Wayline are there already, scouring every inch of the small desolated town.

Who tipped them off that there was a collector in town? And why are they suddenly so interested in the day-to-day activities of the resistance? Hope knows there’s more to this mystery than meets the eye.

She volunteers to embark on a dangerous mission to try and disrupt the Wayline communications systems, hoping to find out more about what the Wayline are planning. But just when she finds out their terrible secret, she’s captured.

Will she have what it takes to make it out of there safe? Will she rejoin the resistance? Or will she go to work for the very thing that destroyed her family to try to bring peace to the world?

The Wayline have a legend about the great Sabella, the light bringer who defeated the dark. Might Hope be the mysterious Sabella? The one destined to fight back against the darkness and bring light to the world?

Quota

by Savannah Trent

No one knew how long they’d been watching.
Just – watching.
Until the day the sky shimmered and the mothership took form, filling the sky, blotting out the sun. That had been three years ago.
The mothership moved, now and then. There was an app that would tell you where the ship was now. Or where it had last been seen. No one could predict where it would go next.
And that was the scary part.
Because, once it reappeared, it would collect its Quota. Twenty-five men and twenty-five women, between the ages of twenty-two and thirty. The United Nations had agreed to Quota, and every nation enforced the collection laws.
They had to.
The aliens had made it perfectly clear that, if Quota was not met, they would destroy the earth.

But an accident caused by an alien work party disrupts the gateway.

At the literal turn of the century, a rag tag team of misfits calling themselves Jetpunks and fashioning themselves inheritors to the legacy of Jesse James or Butch Cassidy, decide to rekindle a war of vandalism and corporate mischief.

The Tourists

by Leonard Gaultois

This is a Sci-fi Short Story that I wrote for a high school English Literature assignment. The graded paper (B+) lay hidden in a pile of old papers for more than forty years. I am sure this was my first attempt to write Sci-fi. The story is about our first interstellar mission to Proxima Centuri. I considered rewriting it or even using as the basis of a full novel. In the end – I decided just to share it as-is. Enjoy.



The Glass Planet: Books 1,2, & 3: In the Beginning

by N. M. Reed

All three books of the Glass Planet series. The story gets thicker and more interesting, with some of the same characters traveling through time to keep us connected to Earth history thousands of years ago, with the book of Moses, Exodus and more. The book that follows this is GP9 Glass Planet 9 series #5-9 (pic of the earth is most of the cover).
The first book is the retelling of the Ezekiel story, of the crash landing of an alien spacecraft and how the sole survivor, in fighting for his survival changed the history of this planet forever. He interbreeds with the native peoples and starts a new beautiful civilization, only to be interrupted by the return of his own people from deep space to rescue him.
Story two, Gabriels Objective further tells the story of Exodus, when his people have to leave Egypt by order of the new evil Scorpion king, usurper to the throne. And the old leader comes back thru deep space to help his people, but maybe he is making things worse by laying down more strange rules and experiences for these half-aboriginal people that don’t really understand what he actually is. The research team is above them observing and Gabriel is trying to learn and to teach a new generation of observers, but things go very wrong sometimes, and the aborigines set up a new and startlingly strong religion based on their antique experiences with the old god from space.
Book 3, The Silver Sarcophagus is the story of the old God’s death and how he was returned to the surface of the planet only to be discovered in a crypt several thousand years later by a earth research team, and again the history is little understood except by maybe Gabriel and his cadre of space researchers. Back on the home planet, unknown to the old god while he is barely still alive, his people are suffering an invasion of their own, a insect-like race has invaded and is taking the aborigines of that world to their own world for some unknown reason, The reason is discovered inadvertently when Shantraciel, an artist from the Gods home world, is accidentally delivered to the insect planet and experiences the conversion process his people are under-going. And it horrifies him and changes him for ever. He escapes back to his dying home world, where his people are trying to escape to other planets to survive. One of those planets in Earth. And they return in groups to different continents of Earth to settle for a while until they can return to their own home world after the insectoids are done with their project. And again the face of this planet changes forever for reasons unknown, unknown to the natives of this world anyway. For when the insect-race is finally stopped and the people of the old God’s home world can go home, they leave this planet mysteriously and suddenly, leaving empty shells of advanced civilizations and confused aboriginal populations all over the world searching to regain the knowledge of their ancient Gods..

Addendum
This book seems to be the Atheist test: everyone that starts it gets angry for some reason, even when they claim that they are open-minded atheists; and I’ve been thinking about that. This book is a story of a possibility of the origins of the bible stories, where divine intervention is really ancient extraterrestrial intervention. This carries you so convincingly for such a long time, then when you realize you are being re-told the bible stories of exodus, then I think people feel tricked.
But if its so real and convincing, then maybe its time for this story. I think most people have been so deeply indoctrinated with God-oriented origins of life and the sacredness of the bible, that even seriously espoused atheists have trouble being open-minded about it. The bible is a beautiful ancient work of poetry and story telling. But, If God created Man, as they say, then God is Nature, because man is a natural creature and belongs on Earth. Or are we Not? And from somewhere else? And they are our Gods.



Harp’s Tale (The Greenstone Trilogy Book 1)

by A P Johns

In a world of two halves, a spy reaches the end of a sixty-year search to find a mineral vital to his civilisation’s survival. Far away to the South, a farmer’s son with a hidden gift is plagued by visions. Harp’s Tale is a convergence of the lives of the spy and the young man, and the quest to recover a kidnapped princess. From the rural tranquillity of his home, through the glittering capital Sogon and the religious centre of Lotus, the story takes Harp into the unending Great Sand Sea, where a strange religion masks an alien culture.
With intrigue, spies, assassins, religious schism, humour, romance, adventure and even a kitchen sink, this story does its best to defy its categorisation as fantasy/SF. At its core, it is a heart-warming tale of trust, comradeship and growing up. Envisaged as part of a trilogy, but a complete narrative in itself, Harp’s Tale introduces you to a world divided, where the outcome of reconciliation or war is in the balance. As poker players would say : Read it and weep, and laugh, and be introduced to a rich and broad environment, that will be further explored in the sequel, Thunderhead.

Take the first step and join the adventure.

80 years ago, humanity’s interstellar war with the Arez ended when both sides suffered catastrophic losses of life. The fighting has ended but the hatred between the two species remains. The fragile ceasefire is only maintained by a shared fear of extinction on the part of both races but the slightest spark could reignite the war.

Jake’s simple life is thrown into chaos when he frees Adeola from a mysterious pod he finds in his father’s salvage yard. They form a bond that could save the future but only if they can survive the hatred that threatens to destroy both of their cultures.
