After a century of warfare, humanity finally discovered the Achilles heel of
the Ryall, their xenophobic reptilian foe. Spica – Alpha Virginis – is the key
star system in enemy space. It is the hub through which all Ryall starships
must pass, and if humanity can only capture and hold it, they will strangle the
Ryall war machine and end their threat to humankind forever.
It all seemed so simple in the computer simulations: Advance by stealth,
attack without warning, strike swiftly with overwhelming power. Unfortunately,
conquering the Ryall proves the easy part. With the key to victory in hand,
Richard and Bethany Drake discover that they must also conquer human nature if
they are to bring down the alien foe …

It is the 24th Century and humanity is just gaining a
toehold out among the stars. Stellar Survey Starship Magellan is
exploring the New Eden system when they encounter two alien spacecraft.
When the encounter is over, the score is one human scout ship and one alien
aggressor destroyed. In exploring the wreck of the second alien ship,
spacers discover a survivor with a fantastic story.
The alien comes from a million-star Galactic Empire ruled
over by a mysterious race known as the Broa. These overlords are the masters of
this region of the galaxy and they allow no competitors. This news
presents Earth’s rulers with a problem. As yet, the Broa are ignorant of
humanity’s existence. Does the human race retreat to its one small
world, quaking in fear that the Broa will eventually discover Earth? Or do
they take a more aggressive approach?
Whatever they do, they must do it quickly! Time is
running out for the human race...
FIRST TIME IN PRINT ANYWHERE!
The expedition to the Crab
Nebula has returned to Earth and the news is not good. Out among the stars, a
million systems have fallen under Broan domination, the fate awaiting Earth
should the Broa ever learn of its existence. The problem would seem to allow but
three responses: submit meekly to slavery, fight and risk extermination, or hide
and pray the Broa remain ignorant of humankind for at least a few more
generations. Are the hairless apes of Sol III finally faced with a problem for
which there is no acceptable solution?
While politicians argue,
Mark Rykand and Lisa Arden risk everything to spy on the all-powerful enemy that
is beginning to wonder at the appearance of mysterious bipeds in their midst…
FIRST TIME IN PRINT ANYWHERE!
The great debate is over. The human race has rejected the
idea of pulling back from the stars and hiding on Earth in the hope the Broa
will overlook us for a few more generations. Instead, the World Parliament, by
a 60-40 vote, has decided to throw the dice and go for a win. Parliament Hall
resounds with brave words as members declare victory inevitable.
With the balance of forces a million to one against Homo
sapiens Terra, those who must turn patriotic speeches into hard-won reality have
their work cut out for them. They must expand humanity’s foothold in Broan
space while contending with a supply line that is 7000 light-years long.
If the sheer magnitude of the task isn’t enough, Mark and
Lisa Rykand discover they are in a race against two very different antagonists.
The Broa are beginning to wonder at the strange two-legged interlopers in their
domain; while back on Earth, those who lost the great debate are eager to try
Whoever wins the race will determine the future of the human
species… or, indeed, whether it has one.
The Makers searched for the secret to faster-than-light
travel for 100,000 years. Their chosen instruments were the Life Probes, which
they launched in every direction to seek out advanced civilizations among the
stars. One such machine searching for intelligent life encounters 21st century
Earth. It isn't sure that it has found any ...
Three hundred years after humanity made its deal with the
Life Probe to search out the secret of faster-than-light travel, the descendants
of the original expedition return to Earth in a starship. They find a world that
has forgotten the ancient contract. No matter. The colonists have overcome far
greater obstacles in their single minded drive to redeem a promise made before
any of them were born ...
Where would you visit if you invented a time machine, but
couldn't steer it? And what if you went out for a six pack of beer and
never came back? If you think nuclear power is dangerous, you should
try black holes as an energy source -- or even scarier, solar energy! Visit the
many worlds of Michael McCollum. I guarantee that you'll be surprised!
When the supergiant star Antares exploded in 2512, the human
colony on Alta found their pathway to the stars gone, isolating them from the
rest of human space for more than a century. Then one day, a powerful warship
materialized in the system without warning. Alarmed by the sudden appearance of
such behemoth, the commanders of the Altan Space Navy dispatched one of their
most powerful ships to investigate. What ASNS Discovery finds when they finally
catch the intruder is a battered hulk manned by a dead crew.
That is disturbing news for the Altans. For the dead
battleship could easily have defeated the whole of the Altan navy. If it could
find Alta, then so could whoever it was that beat it. Something would have to be
After more than a century of isolation, the paths between
stars are again open and the people of Alta in contact with their sister colony
on Sandar. The opening of the foldlines has not been the unmixed blessing the
Altans had supposed, however.
For the reestablishment of interstellar travel has brought
with it news of the Ryall, an alien race whose goal is the extermination of
humanity. If they are to avoid defeat at the hands of the aliens, Alta must seek
out the military might of Earth. However, to reach Earth requires them to dive
into the heart of a supernova ...

A Discovery Of Major Impact ...
The new comet found near Jupiter was an incredible treasure
trove of water-ice and rock. Immediately, the water-starved Luna Republic and
Sierra Corporation, a leader in asteroid mining, were squabbling over rights to
the new resource. But all thoughts of profit and fame were abandoned when a
scientific expedition discovered that the comet's trajectory placed it on a
collision course with Earth!
As scientists struggled to find a way to alter the comet's
course, world leaders tried desperately to restrain mass panic, and two lovers
quarreled over the direction the comet was to take, all Earth waited to see if
humanity had any future at all ...
When the sun flared out of control and boiled Earth's
oceans, humanity took refuge in a place that few would have predicted. In
the greatest migration in history, the entire human race took up residence among
the towering clouds and deep clear-air canyons of Saturn's upper
atmosphere. Having survived the traitor star, they returned to the
all-too-human tradition of internecine strife. The new city-states of
Saturn began to resemble those of ancient Greece, with one group of cities
taking on the role of militaristic Sparta ...
Starhopper was humanity's first interstellar
probe. It was designed to search for intelligent life beyond the
solar system. Before it could be launched, however, intelligent life
found Earth. The discovery of an alien light sail inbound at the edge of
the solar system generated considerable excitement in scientific circles.
With the interstellar probe nearing completion, it gave scientists the
opportunity to launch an expedition to meet the aliens while they were still in
space. The second surprise came when Starhopper's crew boarded the alien
craft. They found beings who, despite their alien physiques, were
surprisingly compatible with humans. That two species so similar could
have evolved a mere twelve light years from one another seemed too coincidental
to be true.
One human being soon discovered that coincidence had nothing
to do with it ...
Duncan MacElroy was an ordinary engineering student before
he went out for a six-pack of beer one night and never came back. Instead,
he found himself embroiled in a war for the dominance of Paratime, as well as
defending our own particular version of Earth from predators on both sides of
the battle lines. For he quickly discovered that "parallel
universes" aren't, and that a single individual can make all of the
difference in the worlds!
