Science Fiction

Forbidden System

This is the mission where it all begins.

Before he was the super confident, snarky AI saving Siv Gendin and his friends’ bacon on a regular basis, Silky worked with his first human companion, Eyana Ora, an Empathic Services agent.

Two centuries before the Fall of the Benevolence…

A simple covert mission to spy on the Krixis, a telepathic alien race, turns into a desperate bid to save mankind when Silky and Eyana uncover a plot to use a secret super-weapon. But the weapon, a lost piece of Ancient technology, holds secrets that neither side expected—secrets that will reshape humanity’s future.

Rogue Starship

Daring Adventure, Sentient AI’s, Alien Mysteries

When renowned archeologist Gav Gendin finds an Ancient starship, and a stasis chamber with a living member of the extinct alien race inside, he knows something strange is going on. Visions and dreams aren’t the normal way archeologists uncover artifacts, but that’s what guided him to the Ancient ship.

The discovery should be the greatest triumph of his career. Instead, it ends in disaster and leads to his son, Siv, being placed in cryogenic sleep.

A century later, Siv wakes to a world in decline, a world where you do what you must to survive. With the help of Silky, his father’s old neural-interfacing AI companion, Siv becomes the best procurement specialist on the planet. But his services belong to the criminal Shadowslip Guild who owns him. After a job goes sideways in the worst way possible, the last thing Siv expects is to be offered his freedom. But there’s a catch. His target is so hot that rival criminal guilds, foreign governments, and religious extremists will risk war to get it.

The Outworld Ranger series packs all the action and sci-fi fun of the stories that inspired it: Star Wars, The Fifth Element, and Guardians of the Galaxy. It has sentient AI’s, alien mysteries, starship battles, quirky robots, and a space messiah.

Shadow Agents

Siv and the others may have escaped Ekaran IV on the Outworld Ranger, but now they’re on the run with two governments, several criminal organizations, and a host of bounty hunters in pursuit.

If they want to protect Oona, the young hyperphasic messiah, they need allies, resources, and information. The girl’s father, Ambassador Vim, could provide those things. The problem: he’s missing.

He was last seen on a planet named Titus II. And all the groups hunting them know it. Going after him means walking into multiple ambushes. The risk may not be worth the reward. Especially once they realize the most feared bounty hunter in the universe, Vega Kaleeb, is after them.

And Kaleeb is even more dangerous than they realize. His ultimate goal is far more sinister than that of the governments and criminal organizations paying him to capture the hyperphasic messiah.

Breaking Point

Silky, Siv, and Mitsuki are now willing to do whatever it takes to find and rescue Ambassador Galen Vim. But government agents, criminal organizations, and bounty hunters swarm the Titus II system. Getting to the planet alive may be the easiest part of this mission since no one has seen the ambassador since he was captured by Tekk Reapers.

Thanks to a vision from Oona, the young hyperphasic messiah, they know he’s alive and in the company of a mysterious young woman with unusual abilities. They also know that he has information essential not just to Oona’s survival but to the survival of human civilization itself.

Fallen Souls

The Outworld Ranger crew has dodged government forces, criminal guilds, and bounty hunters numerous times since fleeing Ekaran IV. But with the warships of the Dark Messiah closing in on them, their mission has never been in greater jeopardy.

Cornered, their options and allies are few. And the Outworld Ranger suffered extensive damage getting them this far.

To make matters worse, an unexpected tragedy has plunged Oona, the young hyperphasic messiah, into her Trial of Corruption. With ancient evils threatening to rise once again, humanity is in dire need.

If the crew can’t reach the mysterious genetics facility that disappeared when the Benevolence fell, then Oona won’t be the only one in danger of losing themselves to darkness.

Xam Chen is one of the few people in what is left of the Benevolency who can maintain and repair the remaining stardrives.

The Shadowed Manse

This series is also publishing to ROYAL ROAD.

A whimsical, high-octane, universe-spanning space adventure. Perfect for fans of Doctor Who and classic science fiction.

Arthur Paladin doesn’t fit in. Not at home with the ultra-strict grandmother who raised him after his mother died and his dad disappeared. And not at school where the teachers think he’s trouble and the other kids think he’s a freak. Every night he peers into the sky with his telescope, sketches spaceships, and dreams about learning amazing things, the sort of things you need to know to save the world.

Then Arthur finds out his grandmother may send him to military school, which leads to a fight with his “perfect” cousin, which leads to the mysterious plate over his heart getting broken, which leads to his whole world turning upside down.

Shadow creatures appear out of nowhere to kill him. An angelic being from another dimension begs for his help. He takes refuge in a house that looks like an English cottage on the outside but is actually a mansion on the inside. Packed with shadow creatures, the manse immediately soars away from Earth and across the universe. Arthur is trapped, and he’s only got Morgan Apple to help him. Morgan Apple, a girl who apparently sits beside him every day just to call him a moron.

That’s when life gets really weird for Arthur. That’s when he gets an energy sword and a raygun and finds out he’s the next Multiversal Paladin.

The Warlock’s Gambit

A whimsical, high-octane, universe-spanning space adventure. Perfect for fans of Doctor Who and classic science fiction.

Arthur and Morgan must free the Manse from shadow before it dies, taking them and the secrets of Arthur’s past out with it.

Arthur Paladin’s parents were murdered by the forces of Entropy. Now Arthur, as the next Multiversal Paladin, must fight those forces and bring the light and hope of Aetheria wherever darkness has taken hold. At least, that’s what Arthur and Morgan Apple, his first and only official companion, have been told.

The first step in their new mission isn’t an easy one. They must destroy the shades infesting the Manse and the warlock controlling them. With the task half done, Arthur and Morgan begin to realize that what they’ve been told isn’t the whole story. Light and dark, good and evil, may not be as clear cut as they thought. And Arthur may be destined to be something more than just another Multiversal Paladin.

Unfortunately, the only one with answers is the warlock. And he’s been trying to kill them.
