About this ebook

“A gunslinger adventure with good, clean fun!”

With a stolen experimental starship and a pair of advanced synthetic limbs, he’s not your average bounty hunter.

When he accepted the job on a backwater planet, Hunter thought it would be easy. He and his partner just had to track down a missing researcher. But when they find her, she’s fled a quarter of the way around the massive ring of twenty-seven gates and Hunter realizes all is not as he was told.

That simple realization, and Hunter’s drive for retribution, kick off a series of adventures leading to the most important discovery since the fall of the Gate Age—and put him in direct confrontation with the corp he’s been running from for the past 10 revolutions.

Set in a far distant future, The 28th Gate is a series of tales that will appeal of fans of space marines, space fleets, and military hard science fiction. The series consists of eight volumes spread across four seasons telling the story of Hunter’s struggles against the AAA corporation that created him. Each volume contains six episodic novelettes each with the action, character, and plotting of a complete story all crammed into an espresso-like package, while each season chronicles a different arc in the overall epic.

About the author

Christopher C. Dimond has an ever-worsening affliction: he creates worlds in his head. What started as a love for the written word as a child has turned into a passion for writing even years spent earning a Ph.D. in Biology and Society could not diminish. He enjoys reading hard science fiction, epic fantasy, and action-packed thrillers--and has his own versions of each of these in various states of creation. Christopher lives with his wife and son outside of Houston, TX, just down the road from NASA. For more information about Christopher, or for details about his debut sci-fi series, The 28th Gate, you can visit his website at
