Get Your EFT v3.1! [ Nov 23, 2015 ]
So if youre 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 thats what happens to the Cerereans as they once again must face a military challenge from Terras United World government.
Will it finally come to interplanetary war? Or maybe there are other options, drawn from Terras 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
In Seamus and Nicole's stateroom, we are looking at the wall-sized viewscreen from a viewpoint behind Seamus and Nicole, sitting on Seamus' extended bunk. On the screen we see some sort of anachronistic drama â the setting looks like a 19th-Century drawing room but the people looked like the walked off the set of Jersey Shores.
Caption: Alpine Dream's staterooms all have wall-screens offering views of just about anything â from the space-scape outside the ship to programming from more than 2,000 broad- and narrow-cast stations on Terra, Luna, L-5 City, and Mars.
Swap view so we can see Nicole and Seamus, both have their backs propped up on cushions. Seamus looks rather bored, but Nicole is very much enjoying the presented drama.
Caption: One draw-back is that all of a stateroom's guests must agree on what to view.
Same shot. Nicole is startled by the noise of Seamus' fart.
Nicole holds her hands over nose and mouth in alarm, Seamus looks apologetic.
Seamus: Terribly sorry â another consequence of my endocrine problem is, er, occasional digestive malfunctions.
Nicole rises and walks away, waving her hand in front of her face.
Nicole: Ugh. Now I really need some fresh air. See you in a few hours.
Glancing sideways towards the door, Seamus pulls his own portable Screen from between two of the cushions.
Seamus leans back against the cushions and dictates to the Screen he's holding before him.
Seamus: Watson, record audio message.
Seamus: Send with privacy key to Po Xu-Ke, XÄ«n XÄ«Än, HuÇxÄ«ng .
Seamus: Begin recording â hello old friend, I hope this finds you well ...
Exterior view of Alpine Dream, burning towards Mercury. We can see the Sun, more than twice the size it appears from Earth
Seamus: I am about three days out from Mercury and Helios Base.
Seamus: Everything is set up for the package drop â¦
