Ep 3.24 - LIVE! with Nathan Hystad

June 11, 2018

Today on LIVE! we are joined by fantasy author Walter Rhein, author of the Slaves of Erafor Series and several short stories, his most recent novel, The Literate Thief released in March of 2018 and has garnered some good reviews on Amazon. He was first published in 2009 and today he joins us to talk about his writing journey.

 

This episode of LIVE! Is brought to you by Homecoming Psi War by Rick Partlow

You can’t outrun your past.

Korri Fontenot left her family behind on Earth a century ago to fight in a war that broke her body and her mind. After decades of living as an outlaw and a mercenary in the Pirate Worlds, she’s rebuilt both and tried to move on with her life, tried to put her past behind her.

The last thing she expected was for her son, Grant, now a rising-star corporate executive, to call and ask for her help. Her great-granddaughter, Jackie, has followed in her footsteps, first as a Marine and then as a mercenary outlaw, leading a crew that specializes in ripping off Pirate World cartels. But she made the mistake of breaking into a secret corporate lab and stealing an artifact of the Predecessors, the ancient alien race that built a network of wormhole jumpgates between planets they engineered for life tens of thousands of years ago before vanishing mysteriously.

And now someone wants that artifact back and they’ve been hunting her all across the Commonwealth. She doesn’t trust the law, and Grant can’t trust anyone in his corporation, so he needs Korri to save her from the assassins on her trail. Korri enlists the help of her old friends Sandi and Ash, the pilots of the privateer Acheron, and what starts out as a fight against ruthless mercenaries leads them far outside human space, and into the remains of a fallen empire.

For the artifact that Jackie stole isn’t just alien treasure, it’s a weapon with the power to re-start an ancient war, a war that could bring down all of human civilization.

This episode of LIVE! Is brought to you by: Toy Soldiers 1: Apocalypse by Devon C Ford

In 1989, Peter's young life is an unfair and miserable existence, even before events unfold far beyond his isolated, rural corner of the world. He is left alone to fend for himself and to survive in impossible circumstances.

In the dying throes of the Cold War, testing of experimental bioweapons goes wrong in the worst kind of way. As the media coverage of disorder and chaos in London spreads, so too does the disease that makes the hosts it invades exist with just one goal: to find more living flesh to infect. Pockets of survivors, meanwhile, struggle to comprehend the nature of this new enemy.

Cut off from information and senior leadership, one squadron of armoured troops finds itself forced to operate independently, until the remnants of military and government command re-establish themselves safely at sea in the English Channel.

The dead, however, have a different agenda, and begin to exhibit behaviour that could eradicate the human race from the world.
