Summary: Finding work is easy. Staying alive is a little bit harder. When Russ Wesley finds an unusual artifact in his grandfather’s collection of rare antiquities, the last thing he expects is for it to draw the attention of a ferocious alien from a distant planet. Equally surprising is the adventurous team of intergalactic exterminators dispatched to deal with the alien threat. They’re a little wild, and a little reckless. Worse yet, they’re so impressed with Russ’s marksmanship that they insist he join their squad . . . whether he wants to or not. Blurb “This book is so much fun it ought to be illegal in all known galaxies. Ash Bishop has written a wildly imagined, deeply felt, swashbuckling page turner.

Summary:

The War Of The Worlds continues.... The terror of the coming of the Martians is all but a distant memory, a bad dream that has faded with time.

All George wants is a quiet suburban life – but at breakfast one morning his newspaper reports the shocking discovery of a Martian cylinder, found intact and unopened, and carefully transported to London. Could it be from the first alien invasion and after more than seven years are there Martians still alive inside?

By teatime George learns that vengeance seeking Martians and their tripod fighting machines are already on their way back. This time they are armed with a doomsday weapon, able to destroy all bacteria and completely annihilate Earth. The countless numbers of their projectiles form a huge green comet and invasion day will be just before Christmas.

The first attack by aliens was enough for any lifetime, but who would expect to be involved with two? Can George and his wife escape this new Martian apocalypse and how will our planet survive a second time? The Day Of The Martians continues the iconic Mars novel by H.G. Wells, in this exciting action adventure – the first volume of The Martian Diaries science fiction series.

Summary: Trusting an alien is hard ... figuring out which alien is trustworthy might be impossible. Marcus carries the weight of the cosmos on his shoulders. Still, he loves being one of the chosen enrolled in the alien-driven education tract at his university. This extraterrestrial Federation always said he was important, so they’re taking the next logical step by inviting him to join their mysterious research Cohort. If he survives selection, Marcus will solidify himself as one of the elites tasked with preparing humanity to face an alien Confederation bent on enslaving Earth. The simulated realities he experiences during this Subsumption research creates critical data the Federation needs to understand human nature, choice, and to integrate worlds. But the alien experimentation proves more physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing than Marcus ever imagined, pushing him to the breaking point. As the doomsday clock continues its countdown to the Confederation’s invasion, Marcus is running out of time to get his personal life in order. Can he live up to his family’s idea of always moving forward? Or will he sink humanity's chance to reach the stars? Either way, Marcus is learning what the Federation already knows: the ability to choose is the most powerful force in the universe. If the conspiracy theories are right, though, he might be aligning with the wrong aliens. Subsumption is the first novel in the Subsumption Series, a story about humanity's pivotal position between two warring alien empires. If you enjoyed Ender’s Game, Ready Player One, and the Amazon Prime series Upload, then the Subsumption Series is for you!

Summary: A galactic war begins at dawn … so tonight they’re going to party like it’s 2020. Marcus is ready to put a terrible year behind him. The virus and social unrest made his first semester at University a memorable one for all the wrong reasons. It’s New Year’s Eve and tomorrow, he’ll become a legal adult. So tonight, with his loved ones, they’ll race against the darkness to summon a brighter future. But Marcus can’t shake the feeling that something is off. Maybe it’s conditioning, or maybe it’s the series of unwelcome guests pushing the party toward chaos. Underestimating his abilities, Marcus takes a step too far, forcing his family and friends to fight over his well-being as an unidentified object appears in the sky. All celebration ends once an artificial intelligence discloses the arrival of friendly extraterrestrials sent to stop another alien force bent on enslaving the planet. Now the galactic clock is ticking, and according to the AI, Marcus is the key to humanity’s defenses against the imminent invasion by these hostile outsiders. Can an artificial emissary be trusted? Or are Marcus’s friends right to doubt the alien’s intentions? The world has changed irrevocably as zero day begins. The party is over, and humanity is fighting for their lives. Disclosure is a short story prequel to the Subsumption Series, a story about humanity's pivotal position between two warring alien empires. If you enjoyed Armada, Signs, and the Joe Rogan Experience, then Disclosure and the Subsumption Series is for you!

Twin spirits born a decade apart, Velia and Virgil are bored by their trivial teenage lives, sensing they’re meant for so much more.  Velia's mother wants to wrap her in a straightjacket of protective love, while Virgil's father wants him to follow in his violent footsteps.  But the arrival of a mythical video game and the forced exile to a wilderness camp for troubled kids will turn their worlds upside down. Neither teen knows this is a test to see if they’re ready to fulfill their destiny and join humanity’s secret alien ally in preventing the end of the universe.  For these siblings of synchronicity to succeed, they'll have to capture, contain, or kill a high-value target of an opposing alien force bent on conquering Earth.

Summary: Amargosa has fallen, but beyond it, humanity gears up to battle an unseen enemy. And finds an ally in an unexpected quarter. Here now are the three novellas comprising The Homefront Arc in one volume.

  • Broken Skies - The attempt to liberate Amargosa in the early days of the Gelt occupation fails. Force Admiral Quentin Austin finds himself in the political crosshairs for an operation that should never have taken place. While he awaits his fate, the Navy gives him an assignment: Find out the true nature of Juno, the shadowy company even its own parent corporation knows little about. Juno was present before the fall of every colony that has gone silent. And they're visiting another. Read an excerpt!
  • Warped - True FTL is here, powered by sarcasm. And a dwarf. Hideki Okada and Peter Lancaster have perfected warp drive after 400 years of wormhole travel. Now the Navy wants to mount their discovery on a warship. Only Okada and Lancaster have some reservations about how the Compact wants to retaliate against their new enemy, the Gelt. They are shadowed by the secretive Cybercommand but find allies in Admirals Burke and Austin. The question is whether they will need to commit treason to do the right thing. Read an excerpt!
  • Tishla - Only she can unite two warring species. If they don't kill her first. Lattus Tishla goes from indentured servant to Elevated noble woman to leader of the fractured world of Hanar, formerly Gilead. Burdened with guilt for the Gelt invasion that slaughtered thousands of humans and displaced the survivors, she offers them a choice: Rebuild with her, or accept her head on a platter. The humans accept her offer and start building. Except some don't like this new order. And they'll stop at nothing to restore Hanar to either Compact or Gelt rule. Even murder her unborn twins. Read an excerpt!

Summary: In this Rainbow Award-winning space opera/military sci-fi series, Earth is a dead planet, dark for thousands of years; lost for so long no one even knows where the solar system is. Her last known colony, Albion, has grown to be regional galactic power in its own right. But its drive to expand and found colonies of its own has threatened an alien race, the Maess, against whom Albion is now fighting a last-ditch battle for survival in a war that’s dragged on for generations. Taking Shield charts the missions and adventures of Shield Captain Bennet, scion of a prominent military family. Bennet, also an analyst with the Military Strategy Unit, uncovers crucial data about the Maess to help with the war effort. Against the demands of his family's 'triple goddess' of Duty, Honour and Service, is set Bennet’s relationships with lovers and family—his difficult relationship with his long term partner, Joss;  his estrangement from his father, Caeden, the commander of Fleet's First Flotilla; and Fleet Lieutenant Flynn, who, over the course of the series, develops into Bennet’s main love interest. Over the Taking Shield arc, Bennet will see the extremes to which humanity’s enemies, and his own people, will go to win the war. Some days he isn’t able to tell friend from foe. Some days he doubts everything, including himself, as he strives to ensure Albion’s victory. And some days he isn’t sure, any longer, what victory looks like.
