Of a Strange World Made
by Anthony W. Eichenlaub
On the cutting edge of humanity, rules are made for one thing.
No, it is not “to be broken.”.
Biologist Ash Morgan loves breaking rules, but this is ridiculous. Edge is humanity’s bastion on the frontier of space and science. She plays fast and loose with the Edge’s ultra-strict governing AI, but even she’s willing to admit that maybe there are some laws not meant to be broken..
When a fellow colonist asks for help delivering a child, Ash agrees against her better judgment..
But something’s not right..
The birth will exceed the precise population cap set by the colony AI. Somehow those numbers need to balance..
And the child is born strange. Too strange. What experiments could produce a child like this? Who would do this?.
When the mother descends into depression and madness, Ash must decide which rules can be broken, which rules must be obeyed, and which rules will inevitably lead to the colony’s ultimate destruction..
On the cutting edge of humanity, rules are made for one thing: to be followed perfectly with zero deviation..
Descendant of War
by G J Ogden
The descendant of history’s most infamous soldiers will inherit his ancestor’s war.
Frustrated by restrictive rules, maverick warship commander, Dalton Reeves, has crossed the line one time too many. Disciplined for violating orders, Reeves is packed off to “The Abyss” – a dangerous and isolated space city named Concord Station, and officially the worst assignment in the galaxy.
Built to foster diplomacy between the six galactic realms, Concord is now nothing but a debauched, corrupt hellhole infested by crime lords, degenerates and outright failures. It’s also Commander Reeves’ last chance to do something significant with his life.
Amidst escalating interstellar tensions, a long-forgotten enemy emerges from the mysterious Shadow Space to threaten war. Events are quickly set in motion that will propel Concord Station from obscurity to the most strategically important outpost in the galaxy.
But as the secret of Reeves’ dark origin is revealed, he’s thrust into the center of the conflict in more ways than one. Dalton Reeves is a descendant of war, but he’s not the only one.
The ancient enemy not only seeks conquest, but to exact vengeance upon the sole descendant of two infamous soldiers that annihilated the alien’s homeworld a millennium ago.
With the six realms on the brink of all-out war, can Commander Reeves face both his demons and his bitter rivals to become the warrior and the leader the galaxy desperately needs him to be?
Descendants of War is a new sci-fi action-adventure series set in a vivid, multi-species universe. It’s filled with danger, intrigue and drama played out against the tense backdrop of a looming war versus an ancient and bitter enemy. If you like Babylon 5 and Deep Space 9, this could be the series you’ve been waiting for.

Zen and the Art of Dying
by Jared Wynn
Kenny has two problems. First, he’s a Reset, which means that whenever someone murders him, he wakes up on the morning of his dying day to start all over again. Which might sound like a pretty awesome superpower, but it’s actually super sucky because he’ll eventually die of cancer or old age, after which point he’ll just keep reliving his agonizing dying day forever.
His second problem is people keep murdering him.
So he teams up with another Reset and they storm the lab where it all began in an effort to undo this unordinary death disorder. They keep dying, they keep trying, and then they keep resetting and relaunching their attack until they almost succeed. But then the girl Kenny fell in love with gets kidnapped, and then his partner gets kidnapped, and then pretty much everyone else gets kidnapped, leaving Kenny all alone with his thoughts and a nagging question that just won’t die: what’s left to save when everyone and everything you know is gone?
