Get Your EFT v3.1! [ Nov 23, 2015 ]
So if you’re a pair of outlaw senior citizens in the 22nd Century, and after years of loneliness you fall in love all over again, what do you do? You could go on an interplanetary honeymoon to Mars, get yourselves rejuvenated on the side, and try not to get arrested -- or killed.
Meanwhile, your kids back on Ceres are leading a Space Scouts expedition to a strange new planetoid, where a troubled youth from Terra learns a valuable lesson.
The thrilling adventures of life in the belt continue in volume 3.1 of ESCAPE FROM TERRA!

EFT v2.4 Now @ DriveThru! [ Nov 16, 2015 ]
They say history repeats itself. Though 200 years separate them, similar events can unfold in similar ways. And that’s what happens to the Cerereans as they once again must face a military challenge from Terra’s United World government.
Will it finally come to interplanetary war? Or maybe there are other options, drawn from Terra’s own bloody history which might avoid the horror of war. And if there is, what resistance might there be from those who crave the battlefield?
These questions are answered and more in 40 pages of “The Christmas War”.

The Transcript For This Page
An observation deck on the side of one of the central towers in Aldrinopolis. A tall, broad-shouldered man leans on the rail, gazing out at the city. We'll call him 'Rando,' because that's his name. He doesn't seem to react to the voice that calls from behind him, OP. We'll call the owner of that voice 'Bill,' at least for now.
Bill (OP): Sorry I'm late, got stuck in traffic.
Rando: Yeh, Ai can see three jammups frum heer, geez.
Bill walks up beside Rando, a half-meter away. Bill is also tall, but barrel-chested. He has a strong jawline but seems just on the verge of being jowly. His hair is light brown, his eyes are a bit too small, his nose is a bit bulbous at the tip.
Rando looks Mediterranean, not as dark as Nicole, but with thick, black hair and the kind of eyes women go for, and a closely-trimmed goatee.
Bill: Hope you can modulate your mouth to society standard, Greene.
Bill: Loonie-speak won't do for the upper-class targets we have this time.
Bill holds up a calf-skinned, gloved hand between himself and Rando, with index finger pointed upward. A rectangle containing images of Nicole and Seamus appears to balance on his fingertip. Rando looks at it closely.
Bill: A crazy old coot with a glandular problem who's also a science wiz is onto some kind of potentially huge breakthrough, and my friends want to know what he's up to.
Another angle two-shot on Bill and Rando. Rando smiles big.
Bill: I'll deal with the crazy old coot, you get the cute young assistant who's with him.
Rando: You're a gentleman and a scholar, Mr. Graves.
