Get Your EFT v3.1! [ Nov 23, 2015 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 3.1 - The King & I: Mars / Space Scouts

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 ]

Escape From Terra, Volume 2.4 - The Christmas War

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”.
