COMBAT VETERAN JOEL BIRCHARD IS DETERMINED TO PREVENT THE ALIENS FROM COMPLETING THEIR CONQUEST OF EARTH EVEN IF IT MEANS THROWING ROCKS AT THEM.

Most of the Earth's population is annihilated during the initial attack, and the few survivors find that nothing electrical will work. With time, remnants of the military began to organize resistance to what everyone thinks was an alien invasion, but no one is sure until a spaceship is discovered in the Midwest. Defended by giant flying insects with energy weapons controlled by a master intelligence, the aliens carry out their harvest collections by setting massive fires over the entire Earth. How can humans without electronics or nuclear weapons fight such a foe? Combat veteran Joel Birchard fights a merciless enemy intent on the extinction of humanity.

“War of the Planet Burners has the feel of classic post-disaster SF novels, such as John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids, in which a small fragment of humanity struggles to survive against both technological challenges and genocidal, inhuman attackers.”-Jane Lindskold, author of the Artemis Awakening and Artemis Invaded series.

“If you want to transport yourself into an expanse of space and time on planet Earth where technology has been ripped away and survival teeters on the knife edge of the impossible, you must read Dennis Herrick’s novel, War of the Planet Burners. Once you meet Joel, learn of his miraculous survival, see him clinging to threads of life along with others like him, you will have to follow him to the end of the conflict against the machine and those who mistakenly created it.”-Craig L. Andrews, author of Sky Fishing and other
novels.
"War of the Planet Burners is an exciting Sci-Fi book about alien invasion of Earth and the desperation of a handful of human survivors fighting to avoid extinction in a world without electricity. An action-packed story that you won't be able to put down."-Brian Gilmore, retired Navy captain, aviator, and enthusiastic Sci-Fi fan.

“War of the Planet Burners is science fiction at its best. A battle with interplanetary dimensions pits the brains and courage of Earth’s humans against an interplanetary force of a scientifically more advanced species in a struggle over who will ultimately own the small planet on which we live. Earth’s military and civilians combine resources, even though deprived of the majority of our current technology, in an exciting story that kept my interest all the way through.”-Jack Ellis, retired Air Force officer, electrical engineer, and an avid sci-fi fan.

A GAME OF THRONES
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK ONE
 
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. To the south, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.

Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Unparalleled in scope and execution, A Game of Thrones is one of those rare reading experiences that catch you up from the opening pages, won’t let you go until the end, and leave you yearning for more.
The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon.

Jasmine Bashara never signed up to be a hero. She just wanted to get rich.
 
Not crazy, eccentric-billionaire rich, like many of the visitors to her hometown of Artemis, humanity’s first and only lunar colony. Just rich enough to move out of her coffin-sized apartment and eat something better than flavored algae. Rich enough to pay off a debt she’s owed for a long time.
 
So when a chance at a huge score finally comes her way, Jazz can’t say no. Sure, it requires her to graduate from small-time smuggler to full-on criminal mastermind. And it calls for a particular combination of cunning, technical skills, and large explosions—not to mention sheer brazen swagger. But Jazz has never run into a challenge her intellect can’t handle, and she figures she’s got the ‘swagger’ part down.
 
The trouble is, engineering the perfect crime is just the start of Jazz’s problems. Because her little heist is about to land her in the middle of a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself.
 
Trapped between competing forces, pursued by a killer and the law alike, even Jazz has to admit she’s in way over her head. She’ll have to hatch a truly spectacular scheme to have a chance at staying alive and saving her city.
 
Jazz is no hero, but she is a very good criminal.
 
That’ll have to do.
 
Propelled by its heroine’s wisecracking voice, set in a city that’s at once stunningly imagined and intimately familiar, and brimming over with clever problem-solving and heist-y fun, Artemis is another irresistible brew of science, suspense, and humor from #1 bestselling author Andy Weir.
The explosive fourth novel in James S.A. Corey's New York Times bestselling Expanse series. Now a major television series.

Enter a new frontier.
"An empty apartment, a missing family, that's creepy. But this is like finding a military base with no one on it. Fighters and tanks idling on the runway with no drivers. This is bad juju. Something wrong happened here. What you should do is tell everyone to leave."
The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity's home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.
Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth.
James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail.
And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed it.
