Killing Your Boss
Author : James DeSantis

Killing Your Boss was a great horror serial killer read. The author, James DeSantis did a marvelous job with this short story that had many twists in it. I like how the author describes each character on their own page. James was very descriptive with his writing to the point…

Mercenary  (Starship | Book 3)

The date is 1968 of the Galactic Era, almost three thousand   years from now. The Republic, created by the human race but not yet   dominated by it, is in the midst of an all-out war with the Teroni   Federation. Captain Wilson Cole, a man with a reputation for exceeding   orders but getting results, found himself the victim of a media feeding   frenzy, a political scapegoat despite years of dedicated military service.  Faced with a court martial, he was rescued by the loyal crew of his ship,  the Theodore Roosevelt. Branded mutineers, the Teddy R. has quit the   Republic, never to return.

Seeking to find a new life, Wilson Cole first remade the Teddy R.  as a pirate ship plying the spaceways of the lawless Inner Frontier. But   military discipline and honor were a poor match for a life of pillaging and   plundering, and Cole’s principles naturally limited his targets. Seeking a   better way of life, the Teddy R. becomes a mercenary ship, hiring out to   the highest bidder. Whether it’s evacuating a hospital before war can reach   it, freeing a client from an alien prison, or stopping a criminal cartel   from extorting money from a terrified planet, the crew of the Teddy R.  proves equal to the task. Along the way they form a partnership with the   once human Platinum Duke, team up with a former enemy, and make the unique   Singapore Station their headquarters. 

But the life of a mercenary is not always predictable, and eventually   circumstance pits Cole and the Teddy R. against his right-hand woman, the   former Pirate Queen known as the Valkyrie. Soon the fragile trust that has   grown between these two legends is put to the test as they find themselves   on opposite sides of a job.
