I CAN’T HELP BUT THINK THAT IT’S BEEN AGES SINCE ANYONE WROTE SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

“It’s straight ahead, no-frills military science fiction with alien invaders that are just different enough from the ones in the big movie franchises to keep you guessing... [This] is pure, unadulterated entertainment with a hint that there could maybe be something more down the road. I can’t help but think that it’s been ages since anyone wrote something like this.”

Jeffro Johnson, Hugo-nominated editor of Castalia House

ABOUT THIS NOVELETTE


He’ll be court-martialed.  If he lives that long.

Corporal Cranston Thorne is the black sheep of the family and is about to be kicked out of System Guard for his selfish and reckless behavior.

And his father, Captain Thanos Thorne, would like nothing more than to see that happen.  Unfortunately, he can’t stay for the trial.  A remote outpost at the edge of the system has gone silent and he must take the fleet out to investigate.

The conflict between father and son will soon prove trivial when the fate of the planet falls into their hands.  An emotionally powerful adventure of military SF and space opera action and a Writers of the Future contest finalist.

ABOUT J. D. BRINK


If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan’s protégé.  Instead, he’s served aboard a warship in the Pacific, collected intel from foreign submarines, stood watch hungover behind a .50-caliber machinegun, and worked over patients at a hospital in Kuwait. Today (winter, 2017) he and his family are stationed in Japan, where he’s providing a bad example for all Americans. 

Brink’s fictional adventures take place in the Identity Crisis superhero universe, Endless Dark sci-fi universe, and Thunderstrike Saga fantasy realm, to name a few. Learn more and sign up for his “Conspiracy Theory Newsletter” at BrinksChaosTheory.com.
