Sleepers

Jack Montgomery is a freelance investigator for the CDC's Global Health Center, and soon stumbles upon a medical mystery that threatens to change everything he thought he knew about the world--and might change everything he thought he knew about himself.  As the pieces of a world-wide conspiracy fall into place, Jack awakens a sleeping giant that could crush him without a thought.  One that has now turned its attention to him.

The machineries of government grind slowly, and one man with nothing left to lose just might have a chance.  A chance to free the sleepers.

The Stone of Tantalus

The Dead Zone meets The Talisman!


Jason Callahan wants to go home, and he would if he knew where it was. For years his world has changed around him again and again without warning, leaving him with new jobs, new friends, and new enemies. One of a few travelers, Jason is able to slip between the many universes that make up his life, moving sideways from one reality to another. He just can’t control it. Even worse, another traveler is trying to kill him, and his only assets are his wits, an uncle the family thinks is crazy, and a cryptic alternate version of himself. While many might lose their grip on reality, and others would simply give up, Jason hopes the next jump will take him home to the life and love he left behind. When the universe calls, however, sometimes you just have to make a stand.

Sera Storme

Eight years ago, Sera Storme was forced to give up her baby daughter, Lani, for safekeeping. On the run from the Trillium criminal organization, she became a bounty hunter and mercenary for hire, taking jobs where she could, staying low-key. 

On her most dangerous assignment yet, she and Lani are reunited. Sera Storme is a hotheaded bounty hunter, a crack shot and a master of unarmed combat. Being a mother was not something she was prepared for. 

Now Sera must track down and defeat Xane Mori, a dangerous psychic from Mars, in the Sol system, while keeping eight-year-old Lani safe from the Trillium soldiers hunting them. Her only ally is the icy Sabian Delain. Sera’s mission will force her to confront her past, and to find a way to forge a bond with the daughter she left behind.

Lockheed Elite

**Your subscription to Lockheed Elite is donated to Worldbuilders.org**

Anders Lockheed, captain of Elite One,  runs the top crew flying the black. With the council of his trusted first mate, he decides on the work they pick up wether it be scav ops, courier runs, passenger transports or things not necessarily legal. No matter what, they'll take almost any job.

But when he takes on a new recruit to claim a scav job too large for their tight-knit crew, things begin to unravel.

Just before the scav job is discovered by several hostile crews and turns smooth sailing to worse, the crew of Elite One recover an abandoned woman aboard the claim. Now Anders must decide quickly, stay and fight or cut cables and run.

Either way, it’s too late, someone’s made plans for them. The crew of Elite One have been set up, they’ve rescued the woman and taken the bait, and before long Anders and what’s left of his thinning crew must navigate the peril set before them to save his crew from the grips of the military and an especially vile outlaw.

But to what end? The foes of this motley crew of Elite One may have forgotten some things that most know about them. Like how clever they are, or how fearless and fierce they can be.

You should very much like to fly with them.

Because they are Lockheed’s Elite.

 

Vulpine One

Andrus Ovega is accused of murdering his own parents. He is a fugitive from Earth and AWOL from the space army of the International Space eXploration Commission. Left for dead aboard a burning ship, he is forced to assume the role of a notorious mercenary, "Vulpine One." But as he hunts for hope for the future, his past chases him through the cosmos. He'll need all the weaponry, cunning and help from the artificial intelligence "Foxtrot" to survive the criminal underground, corrupt government agencies, evil secret societies and space mutated monsters as he searches for revenge and clues to the origins of the mysterious order of Vulpine. 

Crossing the Streams

Non-human romance. Tarot-powered difference engines. The bureaucracy of the gate to Hell. These and more appear in this anthology of strange stories by Jeremy Zimmerman. This anthology collects five genre-bending tales from fantasy to steampunk to cyberpunk.

“I won’t spoil the ending, but I will offer that the imagery in this tale is so wonderful that the settings sometimes transported me away from the main character’s conflict. The scenes in this story, like Impressionist art, consist of ordinary subjects displayed in mesmerizingly vacillating light. Whereas I usually care most about plot and about character development, these descriptions were so robust that I would gladly read additional pages of Zimmerman’s work just to reimmerse myself in his language.”
– KJ Hannah Greenberg, Tangent, regarding “A Crazy Kind of Love”

“Unchained Melody is a sharp, beautiful blow to the heart. Zimmerman wrote a heroine who is recognizable; a woman who is defining herself, on her terms.”
– Lillian Cohen-Moore, author of The Imperial Companion, and Hatavat Chalom

The Mind Rift Saga - Book One - The Eternal: Guardian of Light

The elementals known as Devians, have conquered all the lower dimensions.  Finding Auren and desiring his magic, the King of the Devians takes his brother's form and kills Auren's family to lure him into a trap.

Fleeing into the future, Glaxus sets up traps for Auren while preparing to bring his armies to earth in preparation to conquer the higher dimensions.

Wings of Silver and Blood

After a thousand years of protecting the last of humanity, the City of Gabriel is dying. When it goes, the domed city will either be the womb that gives birth to the next step in human evolution, or it will become the largest tomb on Earth. Below the city, inside a vast warren of caves, Elliott Dawning awakens to find that the last three years of his life have been taken from him. His will, his body, his very identity, has been usurped and wiped away until the moment he opens his eyes. His body has been changed, more so than the rest of the humans inside the domed city. He begins his third life as the unstrung puppet trying to find his sister and stay away from the artificial archangel that had abducted him. By the end, Elliott will be forced to either take up the role of puppet master, or condemn a hundred million people to death. 

Sarah Dawning has known loss in her life. When she lost her parents, her brother kept her from giving up. When her brother died, she anchored herself to the Holy Order of Archivists and the man she loves, Bishop Galen Rostum. Together they will learn that the city's Archangel A.I. has plans for both of them, and their love for each other will be the catalyst that ignites the terrible purpose hidden within Sarah. 

When brother and sister find each other again, they will launch revolutions, unleash monsters, give rise to miracles, see the birth of magic and legend in a world of technology, and perhaps discover something about who and what they have become. That's assuming they survive, of course. 

Aethos

It was the Breath of God, and to the people of the City it was the core of their world. It warmed their homes and their hearts, it sustained them and strengthened them, and it filled their lives with joy. Known as the Aether to those who studied it, its intricacies remained elusive to all. It was imperceptible to the naked eye, yet its presence was felt everywhere. It was infinitely subtle, yet immeasurably powerful. With it, the City stood as a fortress against the desert winds, and as a bastion of hope and of faith. Its people lived without fear of disease, war, famine, or poverty. Life was perfect.

 

But as the pious civil officer Nathaniel Grey will soon come to suspect, the true nature, and source, of the Aether may be vastly far removed from everything he had been led to believe.

War Eternal

     In a future where wars are waged for ratings, and the truth hidden from humanity, Colonel Damian Randel has learned secrets that only a career military man could have access to.  Forty years after his enlistment with Smithfield Communications, he will sacrifice the life he has earned to tell the galaxy the truth.

What does he know? How did he find out? Follow this serial of his career to learn the truth for yourself!

Exotic Inventions, Imaginary Physics, Living Machines, a hidden Starship and a Martian girl from out of the past - Alex The Inventor has all of these.

Man is bound by it. The world is fed by it.

The grand Contract pulses until the day it expires and man dies.

The Ardent of legend must decide for all.

All is given by the contract. 

Emilyn and Izhan may have shared a womb but their view of the world could not be any more different. The twin brothers have been placed onto the center stage of the city, gifted with the ability to determine its fate. 

An undeveloped society gifted with the technology of the future. Vurosis is a paradise to the content, an opportunity to the ruthless and a prison to the disenfranchised.

Can an unlikely hero destroy paradise and end the contract forever?

Ardent’s Contract is a story of love, friendship and brotherhood amidst a revolution. It combines high fantasy with strong elements of science fiction. Action, magic, adventure, intrigue, and romance are all present. The culture of Vurosis is explored heavily, bringing its vivid imagery to life.
