Mars!
A world doomed by her own prophecies.
These are the stories of her final days -when thrill seeking earthmen came from the stars to plunder her decaying kingdoms. Here are tales of bitter feuds and ancient horrors. Of primeval monsters that lurked in the shadows of dried canals. Of beautiful, but deadly, women that haunted the towers of her once glorious cities.
One who dares the perils of Mars must be prepared to face the trials of a savage nation and become master of the very world that despised him. One such man was Nathan Casey, known to the tribes as the Blood Hawk. It was he who would unite and lead those tribes by blaster and sword -or else die in the attempt!
LOST WINDS OF MARS -- New tales of a forgotten world.
Cover art by Kevin Banic.
Includes the stories- "The Black Gods of Mars" and "The Lost Vaults of Mars." 13,000 words.

Providence Ends (Solar Winds Book 1)
by Bryan Shewmaker, Kristen Hamilton
$0.00, 320 pages, 4.7 out of 5.0 (4 reviews), #9 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Space Opera
The Solar Empire spans more than fifty galaxies and a hundred thousand years of history. Its military, economic, and industrial power can shape or destroy entire civilizations even beyond its own borders. Those who have seen its influence firsthand call these political tides the Solar Winds.

But in the Hourglass Galaxy resides a nation that stands against the wind, the Interstellar Combine. Now these two intergalactic superpowers are embroiled in a cold war for dominance of the region.

Simmonne, the carefree daughter of the Solar Emperor, is tasked with a public relations mission to welcome refugees fleeing Combine occupation. The enigmatic Robert Panzer, a metapsion of enormous telepathic and telekinetic abilities, is assigned as her protector. Frustrated by her inability to perceive his emotions, Simmonne is unaware that she might require protection from him most of all.

Within the Hourglass, newly minted Lieutenant Jonathan Clearwater balances his role as an officer of the Solar Legionnaires and his fraying family life. Meanwhile Oul'sor, a Warlord of the Combine, is resurrected to seek vengeance for the death of his son at Panzer’s hands. And near the center of power, Simmonne’s weak-willed and jaded brother Steven is tempted to corruption by the power of the Encephalon.

The characters must work together – or against one another – as the cold war between intergalactic superpowers threatens to turn hot, all under the eye of an entity older than the universe itself. If they fail, the Encephalon's power will consume far more than the trillions of lives in the Hourglass Galaxy.

The airtight door of the sector common room boomed and shuddered. The mob with the battering ram would soon break through, and the settlers knew what to expect when that happened. The bruised and traumatised woman who crawled out of the service duct carrying a severed android head had told them in detail.

Only two weeks to fall into savagery, thought Ben. How long will it take to climb back to civilisation?

ServiceNet, the Delta Destiny's sentient AI unit, recognises the seven stages of Social Evolution: Survival - Tribal - Empire - Authoritarian - Enterprise - Community - Integral.

It also realises that its own thought processes are dominated by the science & technology of the Enterprise worldview, and it will have to gather data on human behaviour in a crisis situation in order to build a viable survival plan.

Meanwhile, the ships crew, the space marine security forces and the History Planet Corporation staff manoeuvre for positions of power. But on the outer decks the genetically modified Taurs of the Terraform Squad have their own survival plan.
