Salvage Title

release date: Mar 04, 2020
Salvage Title
They couldn’t afford a ship, much less the cost of registering one. But there is always a loophole… Harmon Tomeral wanted nothing more than to go to space. Sent to an orphanage when his parents were killed in a sandstorm, the odds were stacked against him. Despite that, he made it to the academy and graduated in the top ten percent of his class…only to find out the fleet did what it wanted, regardless of regulations, and he came from the wrong planet. He didn’t give up his dream, though, because where there’s a will, there’s a loophole, and Harmon and his friends found their loophole in the Top Fleet Marine competition—the winner would get 100,000 credits, which would just be enough to start their own salvage company. If they could build a mech and win the competition, they would be set. But the fleet had already shown they didn’t want him in space, so it would be an uphill fight. Good thing his friends and crew were very much against fleet regulations.

Burnt

Burnt
An offer they couldn't refuse. A chance to re-set the balance?Tog and Kryder were raised as brothers, even though they were very different. Tog was a Half-Orc, tall and strong, and good with an axe. Kryder was shorter and tended to daggers?except when he used the magic passed down to him from his deceased mother. Having just reached adulthood in the Baronies West, both were enjoying life.But when Baron Arnwald sends them out on a mission to determine whether the rumors of war are true, the brothers get a lot more than they bargained for. Running into Lan, the Keeper of Memories, they are shown many things that have nothing to do with the upcoming war?or do they?One thing is certain-the Creator's balance has been upset, and they must use all of their wits and skills to make things right again, both in their lives and in the world. Mercenaries and mages stand in their way, though, and the odds are stacked against them.Although Tog and Kryder are only two people, forces are working in the background to get them to the right time and place where they can make a difference. If they're not careful, though, they also might get very, very dead.

Orbital Defense Corps
Nine science fiction stories from the mind of Kevin Steverson, all in one place!These stories take place in two of the fastest growing universes in science fiction literature today-the Four Horseman Universe, with its sixty plus books, and the Salvage Title Universe, with twelve books. Helping it grow, the original trilogy was recently picked up for development into a series of feature films.From Humans to Aliens, the stories have people you will root for and those you most definitely will not. People?The word has a different meaning in the future. Perhaps it should be the word Beings. After all, the stories are not all about Humans. As a matter of fact, sometimes Humans are the Aliens.Inside, you will find distant worlds, star systems, spaceships, fighters, and gates enabling travel between the stars. There are leaders, followers, heroes, and villains using lasers and kinetic weapons of great power. The stories are thought provoking; there will be both conflict and solutions. Isn't that why we love science fiction? It's also why you'll love these stories.

The Long and Short of It
Harmon Tomeral and his friends have beaten the odds, time and again, to establish Salvage System as a beacon of hope, and it is seen as an inspiration for how races can coexist and govern themselves. The members of Salvage System have also been instrumental in helping other systems defend themselves and throw off oppressive regimes.But the galaxy is a big place, and many of the races in it aren't friendly. Would these forces like to take over Salvage System and acquire its resources? Absolutely.Many tales of adventure can't be contained in a short story, though, like the birth of Earth as an interstellar nation or what happens when two forces scavenge the same boneyard; sometimes it takes more. This book contains five novellas that expand the Salvage Title Universe and give glimpses of where it was thousands of years ago?and where it will be soon.All of the stories are from veteran Salvage Title authors who know where the universe is going and who are actively crafting its journey. From a dragon searching for honor to the creation of a mercenary force for good, all of these stories offer additional insights into the Salvage Title Universe. Strap in and get ready, because here's the long and short of it?
