Evil empire attacks a peaceful planet. Fight or be enslaved.
On Earth, Tim Andrus was a science-fiction writer, who, after dying, had his head preserved cryogenically – just in case he’ll get a second chance to live again. He was resurrected, not by doctors but by gods. To his surprise he’s not a mere mortal, but a god himself and his god-name is Timurud.
Unfortunately, the life of a god is not all heavenly. Timurud, the god, must protect the good against the evil, the weak and powerless civilizations against ferocious galactic empires. Once he was a human, but now as a god he lives in the galactic realm of thousands of habitable planets, populated by as many species of aliens, with spaceships traveling at near the speed light by warping the fabric of space, or even faster than the light-speed when traveling through the Dark Universe. The galactic empires have at their disposal superior technological knowledge and enforce their dominance with planet-killer battleships, space troops, armored attack forces, proton and laser cannons.
Timurud’s first mission is to defend the peaceful Sferogyl people against the Maggotroll Empire, warlike hominids who are determined to enslave the Sferogyls and capture their planet. Timurud is not allowed to fight in space battles, but he can help the Sferogyls prepare to defend themselves. Trouble is, the Sferogyls don’t have any spaceships or armies, and only a short time to build up their defenses. They are vulnerable to any attack from space and their only hope is Timurud.
Even if Timurud is a god, will he be able to help the peaceful and unarmed Sferogyls get ready to defend themselves against the evil Maggotroll Empire?
For Harry Watt, Bounty Hunter, simply doing what he’s told was never an option. When the best hydrologist on Earth goes AWOL after first helping himself to some company funds, Judge Headlock, Harry’s employer and nemesis, instructs him to bring back the runaway to face justice.
A trip to Mars onboard one of the new ships with the StrateLine Drive sounds like fun, but Harry soon discovers something stinks about this job, and it’s not one of his socks. He realizes he must first travel to Venus Station, but it’s not easy to be in two places at once. And getting framed for murder doesn’t help matters.
So with the help of his dead partner, an erstwhile assistant, and a host of lady friends, Harry embarks on a rip-roaring ride through the Solar System in a bid to prevent a Martian civil war, and maybe earn a few credits along the way.
Big Pete and the Swede. Two miners, made rich by their excavation of the asteroid belt. Maggie, Dolores and Aramintha.

Our miners have secret destinies, secret from each other, and even themselves. So who’s leaving the strange messages that lead the five of them to a planet with an oracle?
Kidnap, archaeology, imperial politics, and a chase from the centre of the galaxy to its very extremes… and five pieces of a legendary weapon scattered around the galaxy.
The Carters enjoy life on colony world, Agate. The K’Tai invade. Can the Carter’s use their secret past to save Agate from the K’Tai aggressors?
Humanity, previously dependent on the K’Tai for its Redlazore, discovers vast resources of the most valuable mineral in the galaxy on Agate and are now free to expand across the stars: Redlazore is also the key component to faster-than-light travel. The planet Agate is, however, the human colony-world which lies perilously close to the K’Tai Imperium and the K’Tai resolve to put the upstart humans back in their place.
The K’Tai Imperium invades Agate.
On the ground, in the midst of the whirlwind conflict is the Carter family: Dave a mid-level exec is working in downtown Gemini City, Sue his wife, a high school teacher and their teenage twins, Jodee and Chris are on a school trip to a Redlazore mine.
In space, the League Border Patrol face overwhelming odds as the K’Tai fleet advance.
The K’Tai soldiers of the infamous Black Legion descend on Agate, opposed by the meagre, poorly-armed militia and a sprinkling of regular marines. The planet and those upon it are engulfed in the flames of war.
The K’Tai, however, did not count on the Carters. For the Carters have a secret. A secret which will cost the K’Tai Imperium dearly.
The Carters are Agate’s only hope.
