Years ago on Terra, Midshipman Terry Metcalfe's little sister Lydia died at the age of twelve. Terry left earth for the Navy of the Confederated Worlds, but his little sister's memory has haunted him ever since. Now, on the colony world of New Rhineland, a sinister figure, a demon ghost from stories he knew as a child, emerges, claiming to have a hold on Lydia's soul. All of his shipmates become trapped in the vengeful spirit's web, as the myth of the White Lady of Berlin becomes all too shockingly real.

Peace Lord of the Red Planet

By Steven H. Wilson

A man of peace trapped in a world at war

Shepherd Autrey was a Quaker physician, led by his faith -- and a challenge from an old friend -- to provide aid and comfort to the victims of General Sherman's scorched earth campaign in the Shenandoah Valley in 1863. Defending himself against a Confederate press gang, Shep was sentenced to die. Instead, he found himself transported to a fantastic world of warrior princes, amazon priestesses and technological wonders a 19th-Century man could only dream of.

In the style of Edgar Rice Burroughs comes a tale of a man who used the teachings of peace and brotherhood to confront a world of war and savagery.

In all of the history of the planet Phaeton, since it was settled hundreds of years ago, only a handful of its telepathic citizens have ventured into outer space. Professor Mors, a legendary intellectual, and his young protégé Cernaq are two of those. Now that Cernaq is serving on border patrol aboard the CNV Arbiter, his mentor has tasked him with chronicling the extraordinary events he is a part of. Cernaq's letters provide a glimpse of a very seedy corner of Naval service through very innocent, foreign eyes, as he learns that much of humanity is not governed by reason or science.

Man of Letters is the third adventure of the crew of the CNV Arbiter, adapted from the Mark Time and Parsec Award-winning audio drama series, The Arbiter Chronicles.

Everything Is Going to Be All Right...

That’s what Lieutenant Terry Metcalfe keeps telling his friends and co-workers. A hero to the public, just months ago he successfully prevented the veritable destruction of human civilization at the hands of terrorists from the warlike Qraitian Empire. But Metcalfe has changed, grown unhappy with his role as an officer in the Confederate Navy. Distancing himself from his friends, he’s decided to join a religious sect which believes it’s literally found God living beneath the surface of the far-off planet Eleusis. And to be sure, there’s something there: an alien intelligence which reaches out to the young Lieutenant and offers him the power to protect everything he loves. But is Metcalfe finding the spiritual fulfilment he’s sought so long, or is he falling under the spell of a malevolent new enemy?

Winner of the Mark Time Silver Award and the Parsec Award for Best Speculative Fiction Audio Drama, it’s character-driven space opera in the tradition of Heinlein’s The Rolling Stones and Joss Whedon’s Firefly. Drenched in adventure, humor and sexuality, Unfriendly Persuasion joins its predecessor, Taken Liberty, in bringing new depth to the popular audio drama series.

Taken Liberty: A Tale from the Arbiter Chronicles

By Steven H. Wilson

Aer'La only wanted to be free...

The Confederated Worlds are unparalleled as a society of free people, yet, somehow, slavery still manages to exist. Aer'La, a non-human, was bred to serve as a pleasure slave. Years ago, she escaped her masters and masqueraded as a human, joining the Confederate Navy, where she worked her way up to ship's Bos'n under the heroic Captain Jan Atal. Now, Aer'La's secret has been discovered by Atal's superiors, the media, and the world at large. Branded a sociopath, she learns that even a free society isn't willing to grant freedom - or justice - to all.

Based on the Mark Time and Parsec Award-winning audio series, the Arbiter Chronicles. Library Journal says Taken Liberty "vividly brings to life a cast of compelling characters while telling a story that measures the cost of freedom. The far-future military setting should appeal to fans of David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series as well as the military sf of David Drake."
