About Casey Moores
I am a retired Air Force veteran who’s flown rescue and special ops C-130’s for 18 years. I’ve been to all the places and done all the things. Now I’m hoping to translate those experiences to science fiction and fantasy. So far I’ve weaseled my way into Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy’s Four Horsemen Universe as well as Bayonet Books Storming Area 51 anthology, but I’ve been working on other things as well. I’m primarily in military science fiction, but have hopes to write some alternate history and possibly some military fantasy. We’ll see, the ride’s just getting started.

Titles By Casey Moores
Meanwhile, mercenary leader Verne and Peacemaker Harryhausen resume their search for the ancestral home of Azure’s Wrogul. They encounter distrust, deceit, and misdirection from the all-powerful guilds, but they manage to learn of sightings of Wrogul-like aliens. Their strongest lead takes them to a forgotten system where a lost Human colony coexists with a strange alien race with remarkable similarities to the Wrogul.
But when they find the colony is in the middle of a civil war, they’re forced to make a choice—do they choose sides or stand by while the colonists slaughter each other?
Overrun: (J.F. Holmes) Bravo Company, Second Battalion of The Irish Brigade, Hibernia Arms LLC, gets caught in the middle of a civil war after the end of their contract. Lt. Lashar An -Selene, one of the few xenos in the Brigade, goes on the run after a disastrous battle but has to risk his freedom to rescue his friend.
Most Wanted: (J.F. Holmes) The agents of the Terran Union Bureau of Investigation, Section 6: War Criminal Apprehension, chase a mass murderer from planet to planet. Each agent struggles with their obligation to the Law versus the desire for revenge.
Slamming: (J.F. Holmes) The men and women of the Drakes use their war surplus tanks to break the siege of a human city. Their newest recruit is tasked with keeping their fusion reactor running at all costs through brutal combat and cold weather. Along the way he wants to earn a better nickname than 'Scrub' but may not be prepared for the price of a new one.
Milk Run: (Casey Moores) A Terran Marine Corps Search and Rescue Unit reforms after the war to ply their trade as mercenaries. Along the way they learn the hard truth about loyalty, lives and money and which one means more to the bottom line.
The Empresses Price: (Armondo Borboa) After the trumpets have faded and the casualties are hidden away in the record books, the Terran military learns the ancient meaning behind Kipling’s “For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an` Chuck him out, the brute!"
Harmon Tomeral and his friends wanted nothing more than to go to space, and they have beaten the odds, time and again. They developed a mech and won the Top Fleet Marine Competition. They brought back a battlecruiser from an unknown system and made it their own. They made allies who helped them achieve great victories, and they ultimately founded new colonies in what has become known as the Salvage System.
The galaxy is a big place, though, peopled with thousands of races, and most haven’t graced the pages of a Salvage Title book…until now.
“It Takes More Kinds” contains twelve all-new stories showcasing even more of the aliens in the Salvage Universe, and helps give a wider view of the galaxy as events continue to transpire in The Coalition series. No matter the odds, though, Harmon Tomeral will be there to stick up for the little guy. From humans stuck being the freak show in an alien carnival to a battle that hinges on a salad, anything is possible. But is making friends with the Squilla and trusting them with your life just too much to ask?
Inside are potential allies for Harmon Tomeral and his friends…as well as some of the adversaries who are lining up against Salvage System. Who are these new races? Take a look inside and find out!

There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.
Bounty hunting is one of those morally gray areas that exist at the periphery of civil society. Few people know anyone whose job it is to find and retrieve fugitives, and bring them before the courts. In the future, however, one can envision any number of ways of how bounty hunting can be used (or abused) for any number of problems. Alien monsters haunting your space station? Bring in a team of hunters, and watch the double-crosses fly. Indentured workers flee ‘the system’ for the safety and anonymity of the Underhive? Facial recognition and some DNA sampling might help you find them. On the flip side of the coin, what if you were born wanted, and have been on the run your whole life?
Edited by Jamie Ibson, We Dare: Wanted, Dead or Alive is a collection of fifteen all-new stories that explore the wheres, the hows, and the whys behind this anti-hero filled profession.

In a galaxy where Humans fight as mercenaries in the Combat Armored Suit, Personal (CASPer), one hotshot warrior must find a new path after a devastating injury. When a member of the galaxy’s deadliest assassin race is stymied by an elusive target, her contract is derailed by a horrendous message that changes everything.
A Human mercenary unit is trapped and abandoned—betrayed like so many others at the start of the Omega War;
Another mercenary unit is captured and given a choice—fight for its captors or die;
A Hunter and her companion—her former target—follow a path of vengeance; and
Earth’s first Peacemaker becomes aware of the shadow that’s loomed over her shoulder for most of her life.
All of these forces are on a collision path which intersects within the walls of a vast arcology on a faraway planet. The Veetanho masterminds conspire to crush all of the Human forces, with no concern for the destruction they’ll cause, but Bull—like always—has a plan. Sooner or later, though, his luck is going to run out. Will his strategies and tactics once again be enough to carry the day, allowing him to rescue the remaining Humans, or will they all be just more casualties of Veetanho vengeance?
In the late 2020’s and early 30’s corporations managed to render the major governments of the world obsolete. The big corporations owned most of the territories as well as the majority of the world’s wealth. While many of the old traditions were still observed in various parts of the world, the true power was with the corporations.
In the late 30’s, what would be known as the Corporate Wars began as larger companies initiated hostile takeovers in a whole new fashion. Employees, armed with corporate weapons, warred for dominance. It was a bloody time, and many small corporations were destroyed, as were a lot of civilians in the wrong place at the wrong time… as well as those who’d been buying the wrong products.
On May 1st, 2067, it all ended in nuclear fire.
Fifteen outstanding authors have come to this Fallen World with stories that take place from the islands off the coast of Massachusetts to the California coast; from the swamps of Louisiana to the mountains of Colorado. These stories not only show you the Fall… but introduce you to some of the people who might just drag civilization back from the embers…

Decades after Bull took control of the long-abandoned facility on the moon of Tambu, it has become a refuge, a weapons manufacturing facility, and a holding point for The Company’s varied assets. It has remained one of The Company’s closest-held secrets.
It is not a secret anymore.
With the fleet overwhelmed, casualties piling higher and higher, and the defenders all but eradicated, the Science Guild believes they have free rein. The Guild is wrong. They didn’t count on Ruxandra Roxtador, a mostly-retired Pushtal spy, a small cadre of living science experiments, a trio of fearless Flatar, and Lucille, the base’s synthetic intelligence.
They will hold the facility at all costs, or die fighting.
It’s the Twenty-Second Century. The galaxy has opened up to humanity as a hyperactive beehive of stargates and new technologies, and we suddenly find ourselves in a vast playground of different races, environments, and cultures. There’s just one catch: we are pretty much at the bottom of the food chain.
Enter the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates Humans from the majority of the other races. Enter a galaxy not only of mercenaries, but also of aliens, hired assassins, and accountants. Accountants?

It is a time of high adventure! A time for heroes to say “No!” to the evils that will befall their families and friends if they don’t rise to the task at hand…even if they don’t want to! If they won’t take up arms and spells on behalf of their people, civilization will fall.
Fifteen exceptional authors have spun tales of reluctant heroes—people often like you and me, who didn’t think they were worthy, needed, or even “the right one for the job.” Sometimes all they have going for them is that they’re the wrong person at the wrong time. When there’s no one else, though, a hero must do what’s necessary, whether that’s fighting demons, the undead, or an unconquerable enemy.
Songs of Valor focuses on heroes rising to the challenge presented them. An untrained human facing an ancient dragon. A necromancer fighting a demon in the land of the elves. A dragon rider well past her prime coming back to protect the ones she loves. An over-the-hill fighter who does what he must to stem the tide of evil.
Inside are fifteen incredible stories of heroes rising to the occasion. Their willingness to brave the peril, though, doesn’t guarantee their success. If their valor should fail, all indeed will be lost! Will they succeed? Step inside and find out!

From the outside, The Lyon’s Den doesn’t look like much; there isn’t even a sign. But Mercs of all species know that if you head to southwest Houston, near the Starport, there’s a particular run-down strip mall that looks like it’s been abandoned for years. The glass door second from the south end of the strip is plastered over on the inside with blue paper, and the faint golden outline of a rampant lion is the only clue.
The door is locked, of course, and beyond the door is nothing but a darkened hallway with a downward slope and a slight curve to it. Once you follow this curve far enough, you are greeted by two very large, very well-armed Lumar. “Welcome to the Lyon’s Den,” the larger of the two says without a translator, and without a trace of an alien accent. “You know the rules?”
Welcome back to the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates Humans from the majority of the other races. Edited by bestselling authors and universe creators Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy, “The Gates of Hell: More Tales from the Lyon’s Den” includes fifteen all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of bestselling authors—and some you may not have heard of…yet. Want to know why Asbaran Solutions changed its logo or where Roland’s head went? Better learn the rules to the Lyon’s Den…and then step inside!
