Jovian

"Jovian" by Michael G. Long

| Author | SmashWords | It has been hundreds of years since the human race departed Earth and spread among the stars. In that time it has colonized many worlds and star systems. Humans first encountered extraterrestrial life in the most unlikely of places, the atmosphere of gas giants. As humanity expanded they were surprised to find this same species of life inhabiting almost all similar planets across distant star systems. A discovery that was soon to be exploited. Corbin Bishop is the most accomplished Diver in the history of his profession. A profession that is among the most dangerous but most lucrative in the Galactic Federation. Plunging headlong into the atmosphere of gas giant planets in pursuit of an alien prey takes courage, skill, and a lot of luck. On one such dive, while reunited with his former student and friend, Kora, on a planet at the outer reaches of the federated systems, he and his elite team encounter more than they bargain for. When things start to go wrong, a routine dive turns into a fight for survival. What they encounter will forever change their understanding of the complexity and diversity of life with far reaching implications for the future development and evolution of the human race.

Autumn Eternal

"Autumn Eternal" by Kyle Bagsby

| Facebook | Of all the places to grow up, Kip Carringer spent his youth in the secluded little town of Arno. Strange things were common there but no one seemed to notice, except for Kip that is. There was a witch living in the woods and all year long it was Autumn. And as if that's not strange enough, all the birds around the town and through the woods mooed like cows, instead of chirping or squawking like birds are supposed to do. Kip was determined to uncover the secrets of the town, all while trying to convince his best friend Marleigh that he wasn't crazy. However, unknown to Kip, adventure was waiting for him just around the corner. Adventure that would be filled with pie stealing creatures and a dark, dark looming shadow.
