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.

This episode of LIVE! Is brought to you by: Blueshift by Joshua Dalzelle

If you could be the first to lay eyes upon a planet orbiting a distant star, would you go?

If it meant that when you returned home—if you returned home—everyone you knew would have been dead for centuries, would you still go?

The members of the Polaris Project knew what they were giving up when they volunteered to fly to the star named Angel-21, but the allure of being the first explorers to leave the Solar System far outweighed the risks. As it turned out, the most dangerous thing they faced wasn't the mission … it was the homecoming. Eight hundred years have passed and Earth is nothing like they thought it would be.

As Commander Markus Brentwood scrambles to uncover the mystery of what's happened to Earth in their absence, he also must contend with an increasingly dysfunctional crew and a damaged ship that's flying on borrowed time. What should have been a joyous return home after a long, hard mission has turned into a race to see which nightmare would kill them first.

Blueshift is an all new sci-fi adventure from Joshua Dalzelle, author of the bestselling Omega Force Series and Black Fleet Saga.
