The Powers of the Earth (Aristillus Book 1)

by Travis J. I. Corcoran

PROMETHEUS AWARD WINNER “BEST NOVEL” 2018

Earth in 2064 is politically corrupt and in economic decline. The Long Depression has dragged on for 56 years, and the Bureau of Sustainable Research is hard at work making sure that no new technologies disrupt the planned economy. Ten years ago a band of malcontents, dreamers, and libertarian radicals bolted privately-developed anti-gravity drives onto rusty sea-going cargo ships, loaded them to the gills with 20th-century tunnel-boring machines and earthmoving equipment, and set sail – for the Moon.

There, they built their retreat. A lunar underground border-town, fit to rival Ayn Rand’s ‘Galt’s Gulch’, with American capitalists, Mexican hydroponic farmers, and Vietnamese space-suit mechanics – this is the city of Aristillus.

There’s a problem, though: the economic decline of Earth under a command-and-control economy is causing trouble for the political powers-that-be in Washington DC and elsewhere. To shore up their positions they need slap down the lunar expats and seize the gold they’ve been mining. The conflicts start small, but rapidly escalate.

There are zero-gravity gun fights in rusted ocean going ships flying through space, containers full of bulldozers hurtling through the vacuum, nuclear explosions, armies of tele-operated combat UAVs, guerrilla fighting in urban environments, and an astoundingly visual climax.

The Powers of the Earth is the first book in The Aristillus series – a pair of science fiction novels about anarchocapitalism, economics, open source software, corporate finance, social media, antigravity, lunar colonization, genetically modified dogs, strong AIâ?¦and really, really big guns.



Flicker

by Sebryna Buskey

Every once and a while I would write down names of every one I would like to attend my funeral, that was until the human race destroyed itself. Once that happened I started to see things from a different perspective, not knowing if your going to be alive to see another sunrise, really makes you want to do everything you can to survive one more night. My dad, Ryan, and I have been in this base since the out break started in late August, its now somewhere in the first week of September, at least thats what everyone tells me.



2020 Vision: Where a revelation of the end is just the beginning

by M Owen Clark

SUMMARY
An award-winning SpySciFi novel set against the backdrop of political tension not too dissimilar to what we are experiencing today.

THE BLURB…
What would you do if you witnessed the end of the world in a dream?

The emotional impact would create such a connection that you couldn’t just ignore it – particularly in the current climate of political unrest in Russia and the Middle East!

Would you report it in, or simply sit on your revelation and hope that it goes away? This is exactly the predicament Sophia Sinclair found herself in after experiencing two of the most profound and prophetic dreams you could imagine.

Set in the UK and the US, 2020 Vision chronicles Sophia’s journey as she strives, alongside her boyfriend Steven Cartwright, to prove that the â??End of Days’ or an Apocalypse may actually be closer than we think.

What starts as a fact-finding mission soon leads to a global race of espionage and treason, as time starts to run out to prevent the ultimate self-fulfilling prophecy.

This twisted tale of love, loss and loyalty ultimately brings into question Sophia’s view on life, authority and finally her faith. For Sophia, her vision of the end, is just the beginningâ?¦

THE REVIEWS

Five star reviews on Amazon, here’s what other reviews have said elsewhere:

“Great book – read it a couple of years ago on Kindle. Can’t wait for another great story from the Author….”

“The ending made me cry! I just don’t know where you get your ideas fromâ?¦”

“An excellent first effort, looking forward to the sequel. Descriptions of scenes were so good I could have been there!”

“I really enjoyed it and couldn’t put it down. Bits really made me chuckle and it was honestly one of the best reads i have enjoyed and I would put it right up there with the established authors.”

“Yes, I cried too! Not the ending I was expecting. Brilliant!”

“It’s espionage and romantic relationships rolled into one. Like Bridget Jones meets Spooks.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Being based in London, I’m surrounded by creativity and inspiration. I work in advertising, so wordplay and the power of words is central to me. The magic they convey manifests in the fact that they’re only conjured through an ability to spell.

I love SciFi, I love spy movies, so it was always my intention to marry the two and build in a long entrenched fascination with Nostradamus too. It makes me laugh how current events are retrofitted to fit within the paradigm he painted so long ago, so I decided to let his famous visions lead the story, particularly around the central idea of the identity of the Third Antichrist.

So much of what I’ve written is closer to fact than fiction and many of the sub plots are in fact a comment on todays society and political agendas. It’s a story that questions where power lies and when power lies, as well as an exploration of synchronicity, consciousness and reality. The second and third parts of my trilogy explore these ideas much further.

He should have known betterâ?¦

In 2195, mankind’s perception of galactic dominance comes to an abrupt end when an interstellar disaster sparks a war against an unstoppable enemy.

Thousands of light years from home, civilians and starship crew alike must battle overwhelming odds to escape death.

As the conflict intensifies, the alien warmongers’ dire motivations become clear.
