Terra Nova, Book 1

Terra Nova. The promised world is humanity’s new home, safe from the threats of a dangerous galaxy, where veterans of a long war could live in peace. The promise was a lie.

Chief Katherine “Kit” Carson, of the elite Pathfinder Corps, joins the mission as a last-minute replacement, hoping to put a spotty past behind her and build a new life on a brave new world. The expedition arrives on Terra Nova, expecting to join the first wave of colonists, instead they find abandoned cities and are soon faced with a new, terrifying enemy humanity has never encountered before.

For the colony to survive, Carson must unravel the mystery of her new home and learn the fate of the first mission to settle the planet....

Bloodlines, Book 2

Terra Nova broke free of the Ultari tyrants, but the colony’s struggle to survive has just begun.

Governor Ken Hale and his expedition brought technology to the Canis Major galaxy that will change the balance of power forever, and the Ultari will stop at nothing to take it for themselves. The colony needs allies, and with no other options, Hale sends Chief Kit Carson on a first contact mission that will either shield their vulnerable world or invite its swift destruction.

This episode of LIVE! Is brought to you by: For a Few Credits More: More Stories from the Four Horsemen Universe

More authors. More stories. The same best-selling universe. It's the 22nd century. Humanity has taken its first steps into the galaxy, and we've found ourselves in a vast playground of alien races, environments, and cultures. As the newest players on the universal stage, though, our position is readily apparent - we're at the bottom of the food chain.

Welcome back to the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates humans from the majority of the other races. While some of the stories in this audiobook deal with mercenaries, others introduce listeners to the other guilds, organizations, and races that make up the landscape of the Four Horsemen universe, and many of them provide background information to the mainline novels. There's even a new form of life to get acquainted with and a look at alien interaction at its youngest level!

Edited by best-selling authors and universe creators Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy, For a Few Credits More includes 16 all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of best-selling authors - some you may not have heard of...yet. It's a world where you can get anything you want. Some things, though, are only available for a few credits more!

This audiobook includes:

  • A foreword by David Weber
  • “Butch and Sundance” by Peter Cawdron
  • “Where Enemies Sit” by Rob Howell
  • “Boss” by Scott Moon
  • “Leverage” by Josh Hayes
  • “Luck of the Draw” by JR Handley & Corey D. Truax
  • “Contract Fulfilled” by Tim C. Taylor
  • “Emancipation” by Mark Wandrey
  • “Forbidden Science” by Terry Mixon
  • “Change of Command” by Thomas A. Mays
  • “A Family Tradition” by Ian J. Malone

Ep 3.23 - LIVE! with Walter Rhein

Ep 3.23 - LIVE! with Walter Rhein

June 4, 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.
