Interim

Interim


WINNER, Cinescape Genre Literary Competition

The Interim, enforcing a monopoly on faster-than-light travel, stands between the human race and extinction, or so its Founders claim. The crew of the sub-light freighter Lady of Chaos wants nothing to do with it. But when two fugitives, one a scientist, the other a rogue agent of the Social Engineering Service, the Interim’s death squad, come aboard, Lady becomes the most wanted ship in the galaxy. And that’s even before the Interim learns the true identity of her captain. The hunt is on, and its outcome will leave the universe forever changed.

Interim is non-wartime, character driven space opera with plenty of action in the vein of Peter F. Hamilton, Charles Sheffield, Frederick Pohl, David Brin, and others.

Spartan Beast

Spartan Beast (The Hellennium Book 2)


A fallen general and a star-born witch will stand alone against a city whose sons are born and bred for battle.

?The war between Athens and Sparta is over. But not for Demosthenes of Athens, who has but one purpose: kill every Spartan. In his possession is a weapon that might achieve it, the living, unstable weapon which fell from the stars, Thalassia. At present, she lies dead, but that is sure to change. Demosthenes will need her help, for Sparta has a weapon just as deadly in the form of Eris, the white witch who takes her name, not without reason, from the war-god’s slaughter-loving sister.

The Hellennium takes place in an ancient world depicted with brutal realism, weaving threads of cosmic SF into bloody and graphic historical fiction. At the heart of the series is the ever-evolving, dysfunctional relationship between Demosthenes and Thalassia, whose ‘anti-romance’ is destined to leave a trail of slaughter and ruin down the centuries.

If you’re a fan of David Drake’s Northworld series, or Gene Wolfe’s Soldier series, you’ll want to join Demosthenes and Thalassia as they cut a bloody path of destruction through the ancient world. Frequent readers of David Weber, David Gemmell, Michael Moorcock, and even Bernard Cornwell have also found much to love.

Athenian Steel

Athenian Steel (The Hellennium Book 1)


Praise for Athenian Steel:
  • “It is the best book I have read in the last 15 years and easily makes it in my top 10 of all time (most of which are Hugo or Nebula award winners).“??
  • “I’ve read many F & SF books over the past 50 years. This is right among the best.”
  • “…the characterization is flawless. The detail of the period, the actions and motivations are well captured… A grown up’s book – and something to make a classicist think.”
Description

A savage war is fated to drag on for a generation. One living weapon could change it all. But she is not easily wielded by any mortal man. Joined in tumultuous alliance, a Greek general and a renegade traveler in time seek to reshape an ancient world of blood and brutality. They will challenge each other, enemy armies, and Fate itself. Who or what will break first?

In 425 BCE, the Athenian general Demosthenes comes into possession of a weapon from the stars. He fears to wield it against his city’s bitter enemy Sparta, but he knows that he must, lest it be wielded by others. He knows, too, that it seeks to wield and possess him, for this weapon is human, or something like it, and as complex as the wider universe from which she fell. She is Thalassia. She is doom and madness. She has come for reasons all her own, and she did not come alone.

ATHENIAN STEEL is bloody, twisted mayhem in the ancient world and Book I in a centuries-spanning epic that will appeal to readers of Gene Wolfe, David Gemmell, David Drake, Harry Turtledove, & other classic SF/Fantasy authors of the 1970?s to 1990?s. Fans of Bernard Cornwell, Giles Kristian, Simon Scarrow and similar will also find plenty to enjoy if they don’t mind touches of cosmic SF, dark humor, and sex in their military historical fiction. Join Demosthenes and Thalassia as they blaze a trail of slaughter and ruin down the centuries in The Hellennium.

CONTENT ADVISORY: This series depicts the ancient world in a frank and explicit manner, including graphic scenes of sexuality and violence. Foul language abounds.
