Science Fiction

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.

Bang to Begin.

Bang to Begin is a collection of short stories unrestricted by time, place or genre.

Each tale will be unique, themed only by their outsets and by subtle associations, spread finely throughout the series.

They may begin with a bang, but will they end with one too?

Lockheed Elite

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

After Anders Lockheed unwittingly hires an undercover operative, he takes the bait that draws the attention of the very mastermind he’s been avoiding.

Now Anders must flip the military and use them to pull off a monster heist to extract his crew from the heat mounting from both sides of the law.

the robot & Roy: and the Big, Kosher, Dinner: Chapter One

If you have to know more than the title tells...

Let's just say the dinner isn't so much 'Kosher;' by either definition, as it is... not really a part of Chapter One anyway... directly, anyhow.

It's really more about an arcane relationship in a world not necessarily too far away from our own and the philosophical minutia that lies therein, ‘Pseudo-(Philia)sophically speaking;’ if you were worried the kids would be getting into some sort of romp through a Robo-Socratic-love based story.

Which they won’t.

There’s like- Blade Runner and Japanese Anime for that.

So, I guess you could say, it's the human conception of mundane science fiction at it's most mundane. So, you probably won't like it.

I know Roy isn't too 'the human conception of' keen on what he gets put through.

Between/Spaces

An anarchist with forbidden magic is terrorizing the city of Rotan, striking from the shadows of the Slipzone, the space between spaces. Soren the gutter rat, Aury the wide-eyed apprentice, and Prima the celebrity wizardess are all affected personally. Not one of them can end the threat alone, but the chasm of their disparate classes might be too wide and deep to overcome.

Between/Spaces is a story about staying true to one's convictions, while being willing to set aside personal preconceptions that stand in the way of progress and peace.

Sojourner

Mazie had long dreamed of the day humanity would make First Contact with aliens. She thought she knew exactly how that would go down.

Imagine her surprise when she stumbled across solid evidence showing that not only were they already here, but that they didn't come here to make contact with us.

The Swiss UFO Mystery; Book One: Conversations with an Alien

Jack, an American kicking around Europe, meets a beautiful brunette, an alien-human hybrid, at a UFO conference in Zurich and she invites him into her confidence re an effort to save humans from nuclear war and other impending disasters. The CIA, Russian GRU, a student terrorist group from Berlin, and a group of expat Russians planning to undermine the dictatorship in their homeland, all mix together in this international thriller with sci-fi overtones, while some other interesting characters come and go.

Bound in Thought

There is only one rule everyone follows. Without choice or knowledge. One rule that everyone accepts to live and love by. You have a soulmate. Simple yet life-altering. You are connected in thought, with the ability to look inside each other's mind at any time. But you will only gain this ability at 21 years old, and only if you choose to activate the bond. Should you choose not to then you will live your life knowing that your soulmate is out there but you will never find them. What would you choose? Follow several people as they learn to live with the consequences of their choice.

The Fun House

Five tickets grant five strangers access to the newest attraction at America's hottest tech-themed amusement park, CyberLand.  With just a drop of blood, players are able to explore The Fun House to create realistic worlds transformed by mind power and imagination. Worlds that seem far too real to just be computer generated. 

Despite years of work on the project, there's one thing the programmers forgot to factor in: fear and dark pasts cannot be controlled. As programmers desperately work to fix the haywire attraction, the trapped strangers must face their own secrets and each others'.

And one of them is not what they seem...

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.

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. 

Unfinished

Juni had always known she was different, knowing things she shouldn't, finding things that were buried long ago, like living the life of a treasure hunting time traveler, without a map or machine.

One day, the feeling in the back of her head that leads her to adventure, takes her into a psychic fair, and everything changes, for better, for worse, she's not quite sure yet.

The Power Of Creatures

The Knowledge of Creatures It's been a long wait for Kate and Alex who has helped each hero with their mission, now it's their turn but are they up to the task? Can they really stop the extinction of the human race? 

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

Hope Falls

Welcome to the end.

What if the world you knew suddenly changed and you become the hunted? And not just you, but all of mankind?

Follow Danae Morgan and a small group of survivors as they fight for their very existence against an unknown enemy. An enemy that's been on the planet since its beginning, one who will not rest until the entire human race has been annihilated.

 

 

The Extra-Terrestrial Toilet

Larry and his alien buddy, Nittix, travel through the universe in a time-travelling bathroom going from one misadventure to the next.

But, what mysterious power had put these two unlikely travelers together, and what is the purpose of the tests they endure?

Written in the humorous style of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

There are currently 25 chapters in this series to date.

Red Sky: Rising

Winner of Ilbn's "Best New Science Fiction Author"  

Hayden Flynn is no hero. In fact, he's on the run from monsters. Not the kind that go bump in the night, but the kind that eat away at your soul. He's crossed countless miles and decades trying to escape them; however, when a legendary evil is reborn in the body of a powerful child, Hayden becomes trapped in a hunt where survival is no guarantee. 

Now, the salvation of our deeply divided world rests on the weary shoulders of one vampire and the curiously quiet girl, Quinn Merrin, who crosses his path. Is it destiny or divine intervention that brought them together? Either way, they'll stop at nothing to find the new Prince of Darkness―even if it means leaving a path of bodies and blood in their wake. Because, after all, what price is too high for salvation?

Ben Archer burst on the scene by deftly ignoring the traditional boundaries found in the publishing world. In this genre bending mash-up of science fiction, horror, and comedy, he's created a world that can only be defined as "delightfully unique." It will spin you around, leave you swooning, then steal your wallet while you're not looking.

Parallel Worlds and Possible Futures

A collection of short stories exploring parallel worlds and the onward march of technology and it's effect on the human condition. Sci-fi, horror, surreal and darkly comics stories. It's all here.

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. 

Incarnate: Existence

Being the only immortal being in existence, reincarnated every time they die, life has been lonely for Marcy Riviera, her current incarnation. Attempts to live a normal life are difficult when carrying the psychological baggage of humanities brutal past and the question of why reincarnation happens to her and only her. Marcy thought things would be better when she found out she wasn’t the only one who experiences this. But after finding another, as time progresses, they both realize that they may be around for a very long time. Navigating the accelerating pace of technological innovation and the strange questions of their own existence, both of these mysterious beings must figure out a way to ensure that the future is not one of pain and misery. Meanwhile, they begin to uncover a mysterious worldwide conspiracy that entangles politics, organized crime, and bizarre human experimentation.

Time & Chance

Meet Arrin, one of many clones created to be a soldier. When the war for which they were created ends and he learns they're scheduled for destruction, he leads an escape. Now free, Arrin and his brothers exact revenge upon the government that made them, until Arrin is captured and exiled to the Christian colony on the planet of New Earth.

In a universe where most people believe clones have no souls, can Arrin accept the Christian teachings of salvation and find hope and peace of mind? Join him on a spiritual journey filled with rousing misadventures that will keep you turning pages until the answer is revealed.

The Takeover

Men have found a way to get what they have always wanted; a way to take back control from the women who fought to gain what they deserve. 

Alliances are formed, rebellions rise, families are torn apart. 

In this sci-fi, thriller, sexes are divided leaving a country without a government. Cities are under siege as people flee from tyranny and bloodshed. 

This book will be sure to leave you choosing a side, or wanting to watch it all burn.

Spare Parts

Leven Murdock was murdered by the man of her dreams at eighteen years old. A year passes and she comes back from the dead to find out that the world has changed for the worst. An army made of super human creatures has taken over the planet and enslaved those who oppose their leaders. Cities were burned to the ground and people die in the streets.

The world isn’t the only thing that has changed.

Leven herself was brought back from the dead by a scientist named Tarik Harding who pieced together spare organs from previous experiments.

She spends weeks learning her new abilities and training to fight with them until they become a part of her.

The scientist asks only one favor in return for giving her life back. A request she cannot refuse or the world might continue down a path of death and destruction. Harding believes she is strong and capable enough to repay the favor. He believes Leven Murdock can save the world.
