Captain Andy Gage is the galaxy's janitor. His team has scrubbed some of the worst things off the face of planets. Chemical waste. Radioactive garbage. All of it falls under Gage's watchful eye. Even biological waste. His team is the best Hazmat team around so, when they get a routine call about a biological issue on an inhospitable ice planet it is just another day at the office. This is different, though. Gage and his team are about to come face to face with an entity that they have never experienced before. Something that can control the base and lure in a starship just like Gage's so it can get off-planet and multiply. The only things standing in it's way? Gage and his janitors. On this base, hazardous materials is an understatement.

Mankind’s ascendancy is being decided on Jupiter
In the 22nd century, mankind has assimilated the Solar System within the orbits of the inner planets, and is gradually moving further out, beyond the asteroid belt, towards the outer planets. The recently discovered technology of remote manipulation has given people the capability of altering the orbit of planetary-size celestial bodies, laying the foundation of a new era for the human race: the terraforming age. The colonisation of space beyond the limits of the Solar System has become only a matter of time. Soon after the first successful test, changing Mercury’s orbit, a strange object moving from the depths of space towards the centre of the Solar System enters the field of vision of a telescope at an observatory in Chile...

As pacifist Milo turns 19, his turn comes to face the Conscription lottery. If he loses, he'll be forced to join the Galactic Division, and train to fight in an interstellar war.

Once a year, the 19 year olds scattered throughout the human occupied planets are entered into a draft lottery. Those selected are taken aboard the vast Galactic Division training vessels, learning to work and fight together, preparing to defend humanity from a malevolent alien race known as the Matan.

Milo is taken aboard the Anastasia along with thousands of young recruits that have been torn from their homes and families. Before he can worry about the threat of the Matan, however, he must negotiate arduous training, social anxiety, and his unreasonably demanding new Squad Leader.

Before her new life can begin an unknown ship crashes into the planet below, and so begins a desperate rescue mission.

When the Tai Ro Company ship Aegis arrives Amy hopes the settlement can be saved, but why is a ship like the Aegis there at all? And why is the company so desperate to keep the colonists away from the crash site?
In this fast-paced sci-fi action novel, Amy must adapt to survive as her conscience forces her to oppose those in authority. With the future of her crew mates and the entire colony resting on her shoulders, just how much is she prepared to sacrifice for what she believes in?

The Chinese Panda Vase, Special Edition
by Jamie McNabb
$0.00, 126 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 Customer Reviews), #117 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Colonization
(Novella, Dystopian Science Fiction) When home invaders rape Johnny Rohgan and ransack his apartment, the police threaten to arrest him for having used excessive force in his unsuccessful efforts to resist. The police also tell him that they have more important things to do than to chase around after his "missing keepsakes" or to hold his hand. In short, if Johnny knows what's good for him, he'll forget all about his stolen antiques and all about having been raped.

Undaunted, Johnny sets out to recover his property, while steering clear of the boys and girls in blue.

Contains a sample of McNabb's exiting and prescient science-fiction novel Unto Dirt Return. When the political leadership of a generation ship decides to wander the galaxy rather than colonize their target planet, a small but determined group arises to resist them.
