Children of DestructionFTL has republished “Children of Destruction” with my recent changes. I’ve cut back on the sex. Another member of the writer’s group I belong to talked me into when it was first published.

FTL has it down to $2.99 USD and I think that price is permanent now.

If you’ve purchased the eBook from Amazon, you can download this version at no charge.


Buck is the last man on Earth. He has no idea what happened and is all alone until he hears a woman’s scream of terror. What follows is a post-apocalyptic struggle for survival that spans over 200 years. From their perilous beginnings to life-and-death conflict among the stars, meet the most unusual family of survivors ever fashioned by circumstance and necessity.

“Hard” military science fiction romance for older teens and adults.

Rated “PG-16”
————————————————
If you like:
– “end of the world” thrillers,
– “cutting edge” science fiction,
– unusual romances (not your usual predictable romance),
– toned-down sex (not erotica nor porn) and some violence,
– sweep of history stories told through the eyes of involved individuals,
– Alien encounters,
– space battles,
then you’ll love Children of Destruction.

Version 3: Reduce the sex to a “PG-16” rating suitable for mid-teens

Cover 108x162If you picked up a copy of God’s Assassin while it was on sale, go back to Amazon  and download the latest version.

FTL has published a new version with some small fixes in one of the last scenes: a mixup between Military Police (Marine) and Shore Patrol (Navy). My fault. I changed the cops and forgot to change the ratings (Sergeant vs Petty Officer, etc.).


It’s 2608 (Earth Calendar) and the Empire is at war with the Angels Of the Lord — and losing.

In the midst of the war, Lady Victoria Chandler, a direct descendant of “Rock” Chandler, struggles to balance her five lives:
-She’s the presumptive heir to an earldom that spans a continent on her home planet of Camelot,
-Hot Royal Navy fighter pilot,
-Spy,
-Reluctant assassin, and
-The hope for freedom from bondage for an entire world.

And all she has to do is keep from getting caught, stay alive, and find the spy within the navy’s high command.

Complete story in one volume. No cliff-hangers.

PG-13 (some violence).


Cover SuperThumbThe first book in the series, Escape from Earth, is also available.


It’s 2206 and the president of the Free States of America is scheming to declare herself a dictator after the 2208 election.

When Eric Stewart, inventor of the Stewart Faster-than-Light drive and owner of the giant Stewart Industries conglomerate, discovers her plot, he launches a desperate plan to escape to a virgin planet with as many people and as much industrial capacity as he can. But he and his fellow conspirators have a spy in their midst.

It’s a race against the president’s enforcement squad and time — and the time-bomb is ticking.

Complete story in one volume. No cliff-hangers.

Rated PG-13 (some violence)

Children of Destruction, a science fiction novel by Al PhilipsonFaster Than Light has published Children of Destruction. It’s available  in eBook format at Amazon, Smashwords, and eventually several other outlets.

It was originally titled The Eighth Day, but too many people were put off by the title (and it turns out that too many writers have used similar titles). Seems people thought it was a religious book of some sort (unintended consequences of poorly-thought-out choices). While it does have a small element of faith in it (the characters do worry about how their choices will affect their chances in the hereafter), that is hardly the main thrust of the story. (more…)
