Capsule by Kristin Helling 

Available now in paperback and e-book via Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and other online retailers.

Arcturus Holst is famous before he’s even born.

He’s the first human ever born in outer space, and if the mission is carried out correctly, would be the only human to experience what is beyond the knowledge of our existence.

Technological advances in space travel have allowed humans access to the outside of our galaxy.

The only thing is- it is a suicide mission.

Two married scientists sign up for the job. They needed Arcturus to carry out their life’s work. His importance to all of mankind was instilled in him from birth, but he can’t help but struggle with the fact that none of this was his choice.

Living his life alone, behind digital screens, and in the merciless void of interstellar space, can he discover the answer to his questions: Was he born as just a science project, or does his life have a greater purpose?

The Tesla Project: 1975 by Rod Galindo (The Tesla Project Series Part I)

Available now in paperback and e-book via Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and other online retailers.

The classified time travel program known as The Tesla Project, launched in 1965 by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or D.A.R.P.A., was designed to help America win the Vietnam Conflict. The U.S. military has its hands full reverse-engineering the technological wonders various “Travelers” have brought back from the future: microwave ovens, pagers, beta-max players, smart phones, and of course, advanced armor and weaponry.
Sergeant First Class Mike Tyler, a.k.a. Traveler Three, has been informed his trip to 2075 could prove tricky. The camera sent before this “jump” transmitted a pitch-black world right before it was destroyed. Tyler is on a strict deadline to find answers; the portal back to 1975 will open and close again in four hours whether he’s there to step through it or not. “Just another day in the Army,” he says to himself, and enters the cavernous temporal sphere, currently charging up for his trip to 2075…
Sergeant Tyler’s convergence with History begins now.

Dreamers by J. R. Frontera
SHORT STORY

Available now in paperback and e-book via Amazon, B&N, iBooks, and other online retailers.

Rostam Hobbs had been on track to make Chief Engineer on the New Horizon space station … before the dreaming interrupted his sleep patterns. Before the miscalculation that nearly froze the entire west residence wing into a block of ice. Before he’d been reassigned to a junk-bucket scout ship to get lost in some godforsaken corner of space.

Dreamers were supposed to have been identified and utilized by the time they hit puberty, and he’s well past that. Maybe they wouldn’t take him now, given his age, but he doesn’t dare chance being found out. Most people are blissfully unaware that Dreamers even exist. But he works in Engineering.

He knows everything about Dreamers.

And on a ship this small on a mission so long, it’s getting harder and harder to hide …
