Suko slid down next to her, her eSMG in her hand. "Whatever we're doing, we better do it fast. Looks like they brought air support."
Sigrid didn't have to look. She could feel the low rumble of the heavy thrusters firing, growing louder. Still kilometers away, two air vehicles were moving quickly toward them. They were gunships, Thunderhawks, and they were moving fast, closing on their position. Quad cannon mounts extended from their sides, swinging into firing positions and taking aim.
They were outnumbered, and the situation was deteriorating quickly. These mercenaries might not be the enemy she was looking for, but they were still men, and they still hunted them.
"If you have a plan," Suko said, her eyes fixed on the incoming gunships, "now's the time to share it."
"Plan?" Sigrid unholstered her sidearms. "We kill them all."
Alcyone is gone. The Independent stronghold on Scorpii is destroyed. Sigrid and her sisters have fled the Federation to make a new home on the remote world of Medea.
But with a price on her head the size of a planet, and pursued across the galaxy by the Council for Trade and Finance, Sigrid knows she and her sisters are not safe. As long as there are those who would seek to control them, hunt them, they will never be safe.
Unless Sigrid can stop them first.
But to stop them, Sigrid must first find them. But how? And where? Her only clue is a mysterious coded message; one that could serve as either warning or invitation; one that will lead Sigrid to a factory world at the very edge of Federation space, and to a deadly confrontation with her most dangerous enemy yet: the machines of Bellatrix.

When you’re a rocket ship captain, you learn to expect the unexpected.
A routine charting mission can turn into the discovery of a sentient wormhole. A Hedgmonian diplomat may possess your first officer and then try to assassinate you. The Queen of Ridgimon IX may take you as her concubine and impregnate you with her seed.
But still … when you’re suddenly ordered to the fleet admiral’s office twenty-four hours before you’re due to punch, it’s enough to give even the most seasoned captain pause. The Federacy doesn’t make hasty decisions, but they do give orders with little to no warning. Orders that can turn your life upside down, back to front, or—literally—inside out.
My name is Patrick Starson. I used to be a rocket ship captain. And this is my story.
| The Chronicles of Henry Harper |
by Jacen Aster
$0.00, 411 pages, 4.4 out of 5.0 (7 reviews), #1 in > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Military > Space Fleet
When Henry was coerced into writing his memoirs by a pretty face and a vicious pair of puppy dog eyes, he wasn't expecting anything to come of it. He certainly wasn't expecting to be thrust into galactic prominence. Nor was he expecting the fan mail, death threats, marriage proposals, or people doubting his sanity. Well…maybe he half-expected that last one. After all, he’s just an engineer, not an action hero, making a few of his adventures seem a little hard to swallow for the average galactic citizen.
Still, he didn’t think it was too unbelievable, was it? He was one of the few engineers there when humanity first broke the light speed barrier. He was even there when they first met their galactic neighbors and when the very first A.I. was born. With friends he met at times like that, it wasn’t even that odd that he’d later seen rifts in space, planets that jump from system to system, and a colony attacked by plants. At the end of the day he was just an engineer. A really good engineer, one of the best even, but still just an engineer. Surely, no one was really interested in hearing things from his perspective. Right?
See the galaxy through the eyes of Henry Harper, veteran starship engineer, as he weaves for you the story of his decades long career and the many incredible adventures he’s had during it. Watch how he averted tragedy, solved crises, and learned the very best swear words in a dozen languages. Pay no mind to the explosions, I’m sure those were all part of the plan….
| Operation Omina |

"You can’t tell because you’re still under its influence, but the rest of us, the mutineers, have our complete powers of reasoning again, and we know the commander is telling the truth. If you break the mutiny, you sentence us all to death."
Max Vonner, captain of the starship Orion, has been flying through space for the last two years toward the planet Omina.
He and the rest of the crew get regular runs through a machine meant to prevent space-sickness that the crew jokingly calls the “brainwasher.” Little do they know how right they are.
The doctor comes to Vonner near the end of their trip and reports that the machine may be malfunctioning and she can’t predict how the crew will react.
When Vonner expresses his confusion as to why this is such a large problem, she reveals the truth: in order to survive the mentally taxing two-year journey, the crew’s memories and feelings of Earth have been wiped and replaced with only the processes necessary to running the ship smoothly.
Vonner understands the necessity of the process, now knowing it was aptly nicknamed brainwasher, but that is not the end of his problems.
As the machine malfunctions, the potency of the brainwashing wears off, leading to erratic behavior from the crew, and in particular, his second-in-command, Ed Bardo. Bardo leads a mutiny and dramatically alters the ship’s course and plans in a misguided attempt to save the ship – save it from an imaginary problem brought on by space-sickness.
Will Captain Vonner and his loyal senior crew be able to subdue Bardo and regain control of the ship before they lose the ability to complete their mission?

For the Vanguard, a predatory and militaristic alien species, conflict is something they normally embrace with bloodthirsty delight. Only this time the war is not being fought on their terms and it is coming to them. With the Vanguard Dominion fracturing from internal dissent as well as facing danger from without, an abandoned outlying colony reaches out in desperation to an unusual ally…
Only the Earth is less prepared for the impending alien apocalypse than they are.
Lasers, lizards and love, oh my. A handful of unlikely heroes are thrown together by circumstance to try and snatch some sort of victory from the slavering mouthparts of nightmarish doom, for we have been dragged kicking and screaming into a war not of our making.
Taniwha is the story of men finding love and companionship in all the wrong places, with all the wrong people, at the wrong time.

As Earth's faster-than-light spaceship hung in the void between galaxies, Arcot, Wade, Morey and Fuller could see below them, like a vast shining horizon, the mass of stars that formed their own island universe. Morey worked a moment with his slide rule, then said, "We made good time! Twenty-nine light years in ten seconds! Yet you had it on at only half power...." Arcot pushed the control lever all the way to full power. The ship filled with the strain of flowing energy, and sparks snapped in the air of the control room as they raced at an inconceivable speed through the darkness of intergalactic space. But suddenly, far off to their left and far to their right, they saw two shining ships paralleling their course! They held grimly to the course of the Earth ship, bracketing it like an official guard. The Earth scientists stared at them in wonder. "Lord," muttered Morey, "where can they have come from?"
