Space Marines

by M.L. Buchman, Leah R. Cutter, Joel Ewy, Robert Jeschonek, M. E. Owen, Tami Veldura, Blaze Ward

Space opera is more than just starships boldly going. It is also the grunt on the ground with the rifle, just trying to survive.

Come explore seven new stories of the things we might find out there, the battles we might face, and the horrors we need to survive when the going gets dangerous.

About the Authors

M.L. Buchman

M.L. Buchman started the first of over 50 novels and even more short stories while flying from South Korea to ride his bicycle across the Australian Outback. All part of a solo around-the-world trip (a mid-life crisis on wheels) that ultimately launched his writing career.

In addition to science fiction, he also writes thrillers, fantasy, and military romantic suspense books. His titles have been named Barnes & Noble and NPR "Top 5 of the Year" and 3-time Booklist "Top 10 of the Year." In among his career as a corporate project manager he has: rebuilt and single-handed a fifty-foot sailboat, both flown and jumped out of airplanes, and designed and built two houses.

He is now making his living as a full-time writer on the Oregon Coast assisted by his beloved wife. He remains constantly amazed at what can be done with a degree in Geophysics. You may keep up with his writing and receive exclusive content by subscribing to his newsletter at www.mlbuchman.com.

Joel Ewy

Joel Ewy is centrally located for your convenience, has a wife and two kids, and took the Liberal Arts concept way more seriously than it was probably ever intended to be. He's a digital philosopher, and also fixes computers, sometimes for pay.

He's just irresponsible enough to start spending a little less time doing that and more time writing, and making weird, anachronistic computer-based art pieces. Joel has an extensive collection of classic computers from the late '70s to the early '90s and beyond, but he's still looking for that free Atari ST to fall out of the sky. Use your best faux German accent, or pretend you're Dr. Strangelove when you say his last name, and you might get it right. (Hint: Ay-Vee)

You can also find him in the Alternative Truths Anthology.


Robert Jeschonek

There is nothing quite like a Robert Jeschonek story. His futuristic tales are unique and strange…yet always full of heart. You can find his envelope-pushing fiction in Galaxy's Edge, Escape Pod, Pulphouse, Fiction River, StarShipSofa, and many other publications. He has also written official Doctor Who and Star Trek fiction and Batman and Justice Society comics for DC Comics. An Amazon bestseller, Robert has won an International Book Award, a Scribe Award from the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, and the grand prize in Pocket Books' Strange New Worlds contest. His young adult slipstream novel, My Favorite Band Does Not Exist, won the Forward National Literature Award and was named one of Booklist's Top Ten First Novels for Youth. Hugo and Nebula Award winner Mike Resnick (Santiago and the Starship series) calls him "a towering talent."

M. E. Owen

M.E. Owen writes science fiction, fantasy and crime, often in the same story.

She lives on the wet side of Washington state, and when not writing, plays with honking big transportation geodatabases, occasionally kayaks and more occasionally throws knives (not all at once, but that would be cool).

Her short work has also appeared in Abyss & Apex, Fireside Fiction, Fiction River, Flash Fiction Online, and elsewhere. Her debut novel, Survival Instincts, a science fiction noir, is scheduled for publication in 2018. You can keep up with her at www.MEOwen.com.
