Dark Matter: #1 in the Star Sails' series
Earth's first space ship, the good ship Pax has been sent to the Virgo Cluster to make first contact.
Full of humanity's best and brightest engineers, scientist and leaders it is a peaceful mission of exploration. But something has gone terribly wrong.
Captain Jack Stone and his crew have seven days, one week to get out to the Virgo Cluster and find out what happened. The site is not pretty. It's a bloodbath. Aliens are waging war and Stone's men get caught in the middle of it.
Can they survive a barrage of more advanced technology or will they have to rely on androids? And are these androids as benevolent as they seem or are they out to enslave the human race?
What happens when you make first contact with a species that sees you as advanced as pond algae. Do they take pity on you or crush you underfoot?

Scot Free: #2 in the Star Sails' series.
The SS Falcon limps along to the planet Venid. The builders or Venidren are at war with a malevolent species of aliens called the Draken. The Venidren have built powerful androids to fight for their freedom.
The Falcon is returning one of these androids back to the builders in the hopes that this small gesture might bring them an exchange of supplies and resources to rebuild their ship.
They are running out of time to get back to Earth. But are these Venidren as benevolent as the android on board the Falcon has led them to believe, or are they being set up for servitude or worse?
Length: 8,100 words
Short Memory: #3 in the Star Sails' series.
After a couple of bad starts making initial contact with alien species, especially the Draken, the SS Falcon with Captain Jack Stone and his crew are heading straight back to home.
Space might be the Final Frontier but it certainly isn't turning out to be the Friendly Frontier. But what about these Klethren on planet Kleth? A vacationers paradise, even for battle hardened space marines.
The activities and the landscapes are heavenly. The Klethren are the perfect hosts and accommodate any weary travelers' need for rest and relaxation. Just two days would energize many of the flagging spirits onboard the SS Falcon.
But something's going wrong. Stone is starting to become forgetful. He's got a splitting headache and his tactical officer can't remember where he was born.
Can the crew of the SS Falcon get out before they completely lose their minds, or have them stolen? Hmmm... I can't remember, you'll have to read on to find out.
Length: 8,300 words
False Gods: #4 in the Star Sails' series.
Jack Stone and the rest of the crew have had enough of alien races especially after losing more than half their crew. Captain Stone has ordered a direct and faster than light trip back to Earth.
There will be no stopping under any circumstances. But an alien entity puts the brakes on the SS Falcon and they come to an abrupt stop right in the middle of space.
They should be 45 million light years away from home. Yet here they are, right in the middle of the Milky Way and the Solar System.
If they believe in the benevolence of false gods they will find this an Earthly paradise. But there is always a cost to false beliefs. Can Captain Stone save the rest of the crew from falling into idol worship so that they might really get home?
Length: 7,900 words
Ever since I was a little kid I used to fly around my backyard pretending I was a Jedi Warrior or Federation Captain. When I say fly I mean run around pretending I was in a space ship. Me and my friends used to take wooden rulers and paint and draw elaborate controls on them and these were our joysticks. We had X-wing fighters and USS star ships and we would spend hours exploring alien worlds and getting into dog fights. The good guys always won. When I got a bit older I started to absorb everything I could about vampires, going through my own goth and vampire stage. I loved how cool they were and how they were sort of like super beings or demi-gods. Not even werewolves could outfox vampires. These mysterious blood suckers were lurking around every dark corner of night, just waiting to pounce on unsuspecting victims. And so now I write both science fiction and vampire horror stories because I still can't control my active imagination. I hope you enjoy my humble offerings.

total waste of money badly writtenRecensito nel Regno Unito 🇬🇧 il 14 gennaio 2015
total waste of money badly written, formulaic, so bad spell check gave up reading it . My dog could write better prose . I would have been better off spending the money on toilet paper
Star trek ripoff?Recensito negli Stati Uniti 🇺🇸 il 20 maggio 2014
I have wathced the star trek movies, series etc, and this one so resembles it in so many aspects except for the quality. I got bored really quick and the many paralells to star trek was ludicrus. I stopped reading it after i got halfway through the first book, because i couldn't take any more. I'd rather buy the original star trek books than read this one.
