Starliner

By: David Drake

Description: Finest passenger liner in the galaxy — Brightest link in the chain that binds the starflung civilization of the 23rd century— Six thousand lives in a single hull, trembling through multiple universes to land on raw, often violent worlds, each with its own history and wonder —

Excerpt: Reed stared at the crystalline mural over the autobar. The Empress of Earth's ports of call were sculpted as icons. They ranged from Earth—bands of rose quartz and topaz to suggest the aurora borealis—to three onion-domed towers representing Tblisi. The bead of red light now on Earth would follow the Empress's progress across the arc, while the blue indicator for the Brasil moved in the opposite direction until they merged briefly on the oil derricks of Hobilo.

Fledgling

By: Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Description: Theo Waitley has lived all her young life on Delgado,a Safe World that is home to one of the galaxy's premier institutions of higher learning where her mother is a professor. Her life drastically turns upside down when her mother, Kamele, a professor at the university leaves the only father that Theo has known and takes on a higher new position at the university. Theo is then put through many misadventures and forced to change the only life she’s known.

Excerpt: Why do I have to go with her? Theo demanded, and winced at the quaver in her voice. She'd meant to sound cool and remote and adult. Instead, she just sounded like a kid on the edge of a tantrum. Housefather Kiladi looked up from his work screen and regarded her just a shade too seriously. Theo bit her lip. Because, he said in his deep, calm voice, in the culture predominant upon Delgado, children—by which I mean those persons who have not attained what that same...

The Philisophical Strangler

By: Eric Flint

Description: Mighty Greyboar, the world's greatest professional strangler, is dissatisfied with his lot in life.

Still, just how can a professional man in good standing pay the bills with all this philosophical exploration getting in the way That's what his hard-headed agent and manager ...

Excerpt: And that's how the whole thing started. It was bad enough when Greyboar was wasting his time (and my patience) searching for a philosophy of life. But now that he's found one, he's impossible. If I'd known in advance what was going to happen, I wouldn't have touched the job for all the gold in Ozar. But there it is—I was an agent, not a fortune-teller. And even though we were flush at the moment, I always had an eye out for a lucrative job. Folly ever comes cloa...

There will Be Dragons

By: John Ringo

Description: In the future there is no want, no war, no disease nor ill-timed death. The world is a paradise—and then, in a moment, it ends. The council that controls the Net falls out and goes to war. Everywhere people who have never known a moment of want or pain are left wondering how to survive.

Excerpt: She was a God, She was deliberately designed as an uncaring one. Within those parameters She had spent the last two thousand years creating a world that fit the term Utopia. As a fundamental part of Her coding, She felt a strong sense of satisfaction at how things had worked out. On the other hand, to do that required an environment that was unchanging to a boring degree. Maybe, deep down inside, the humans were as bored as She was. It looked as if interesting t...

Gust Front

By: John Ringo

Description: Our choice was simple: we could be cannon fodder, or we could be ... fodder. We could send our forces to fight and die (as only humans can) against a ravening horde that was literally feeding on its interstellar conquests—or remain as we were—virtually weaponless and third in line for brunch. We chose to fight.

Excerpt: I am joyful that our people have such exquisite leadership, the Ghin said. Then he also copied a human expression as his lips drew back in a broad smile. The glittering teeth of a rending carnivore were exposed for all to see and the watching Indowy shut their eyes and turned away. None of them had the stupidity to actually run or otherwise embarrass the Darhel lords, but none of them would ever forget the sight. Our future is in good hands.

Excerpt: And yet she couldn't pretend nothing had happened. She knew she had heard the scream. With that type of scream, someone or something was in trouble bad. Back there. In the parking lot. At this time of night most of the clientele of the Athens came in on foot, from the nearby apartment complexes or from the college dorms just a couple of blocks away. It could be hours before anyone went out to the parking lot. Kyrie didn't want to go out there, either. But she co...

The Course of Empire

By: Eric Flint and K. D. Wentworth

Description: Conquered by the Jao twenty years ago, the Earth is shackled under alien tyranny—and threatened by the even more dangerous Ekhat, who are sending a genocidal extermination fleet to the solar system.

Excerpt: Windward, water of a startling blue lapped at a pale expanse of sand, while, heartward, unbridled green plant growth vied with the graceless piles of stone and glass that guarded the periphery of the great Jao military base. In front of one building, several rectangles of red and gold fabric had been secured to the top of a pole. Even from here, he could hear the cloth snapping in the breeze. Bizarre, but he supposed they must serve some purpose. The compact, el...
