Book two of The Epherium Chronicles

January, 2155

Earth Defense Forces Captain James Hood is on the mission of his life. The Cygni solar system is just one space-fold jump away. One more jump and they’ll have reached the fledgling colony that Earth desperately needs if the human race is going to survive. But a plot to derail him has already damaged his ship, threatened the lives of his crew and cost him time. Time the colonists might not have.

So much depends on him now, but Hood’s confidence is shaken. It’s self-doubt he thought he’d buried, a brutal mind-killer for all military commanders. Yet danger surrounds his team; a brutal insectoid alien race is still out there, intent on eradicating humans, and a greater threat from an unknown, elusive enemy has emerged.

The forces at work on Cygni are like nothing Hood has trained for, tactically or emotionally. When put to the test, he must choose to either trust the unlikeliest of allies, or run and seal the fate of the Cygni colony forever.

Gift Guide: Solace Inc by Jason Werbeloff

SolaceIncTargeted Age Group:: 18-35
Category: Dystopian

About Solace Inc:
With the advent of the first commercially available 3D printers capable of scanning and printing humans, life on Earth changes instantly. The benefits are wondrous: people no longer age or sicken, as they re-print themselves young, and in peak health – with any physiological, intellectual, or psychological modifications they desire. But to pay for this service, society is forced to work hard, constantly. They no longer eat or sleep, choosing instead to re-print themselves as if they had already eaten well, and slept a full eight hours. The world becomes overwhelmingly overpopulated, bullet-paced, and stressed.

Thankfully, Solace Inc has the solution: a pill which temporarily slows the user’s perception of time, and blots out the interminable busy-ness of the world. But Anders, a quiet anarchist who has worked his way to the top of Solace Inc, has modified the latest batch of Solace Pills. And this modification is going to change everything.

About Double Life:
Piracy is a game. How much are you worth?

Since she was a little girl, everyone – from her father to the Great Creator himself – told Lyssa Peate the same thing: she’s worthless. But when she becomes the pirate bounty hunter Razia, she can see the price tag on her own head. Employed by one of the four pirate syndicates, she uses bank transactions and her considerable wits to capture rival members. At least, she would be if Razia’s boss ever gave her a chance. It’s a man’s world, and all she’s allowed to hunt are purse snatchers while she languishes on probation.

To pay the bills, she’s stuck in her old life as Lyssa, discovering and analyzing distant planets and selling them for cash. She’s doing just enough to stay out of trouble, pretending to be continuing her father’s mysterious research while away for long periods of time. Her slimy boss is always asking questions and even assigns one of her younger brothers, Vel, to intern with her. Already struggling to keep the balance between her double lives, she tries everything to rid herself of the kid…

…until the universal police mistake Lyssa’s intern for Razia’s hostage.

I have long been interested in norse mythology and have also followed Odin and Thor in the comics and the recent movies.

How is writing SciFi different from other genres?
I don’t feel that any limitations have been placed on my imagination.
