God’s Ground

by John Brophy

This is a realistic science fiction adventure set at the beginning of the space tourism boom.

In a desperate move to flee from her violent husband, twenty-year-old Tesla Miller kidnaps her infant son and takes him with her to Sky City. Located six hundred miles above the surface of the Earth, the Sky City Resort and Casino is the newest and largest resort in the fledgling space tourism industry. It provides tourists access to the one thing, the only thing, you can’t get on Earth—the absence of gravity.

Finding it surprisingly easy to adapt to weightlessness, Tesla grows to love living without gravity. Her life, however, is complicated by the job she took in desperation to escape her husband, her introduction to the architect of the Sky City resort, and her growing awareness that by raising her son in weightlessness she may have condemned him to a life in space. Eventually she discovers two facts about life in zero gravity that change the course of history—discoveries that put her life and the lives of everyone she cares about in danger.

The Alien Corps

by Patrick McDermott

Planet Earth’s future depends on the Surfboard® FTL technology developed by the Intragalactic Agency. The faster-than-light engine is powered by a rare metal called crynidium and Prosperine is one of the only places in the galaxy it can be found.

The IA are negotiating with Prosperine’s Government for exclusive mining rights, but trouble is in the wind. Reports of a radical faction plotting to seize control and an alien with supernatural powers are of concern. If the rebels prevail, their manifesto to return the planet to the Dark Ages could prove disastrous for the Allied Planets.

But more is at stake than Earth’s trading supremacy. If the mysterious miracle worker turns out to be genuine, it could signal the end to all life in the galaxy.

Hickory Lace and her team are sent to investigate.

With billions in the bank and my own venture capital firm, I’m living the American dream. My only problem? A car accident that leaves my mother with memory problems.

Brainocytes, a new technology that can transform our brains, could be the answer to all of my problems—but I’m not the only one who sees its potential.

Plunged into a criminal underworld darker than anything I could’ve imagined, my life-saving technology might be the death of me.

My name is Mike Cohen, and this is how I became more than human.
