About David Adams
I've always been thinking of stories for as long as I've been alive. I have way, way, way too many to tell and far too little time to tell them.
I joined UFOP: Starbase 118, a Star Trek roleplay-by-emails group, in 2010 and it was there where I learned my craft. But despite being one of the more active writers in the group and simming to my heart's content, I still couldn't tell all the stories I wanted to. It was only in 2011 that I actually started shaping and weaving those random, jumbling, chaotic masses of thoughts into coherent narratives and began self-publishing.
Writing's my full time job now. I write a little science fiction, a little fantasy, a little humour and comedy, and a few other things all over the place.

Legendary American Admiral Jack Mattis, thrown into an unfamiliar universe, must now confront the impossible and do the unthinkable in a place very different from his home. New alliances must be forged in the face of powerful new enemies. Strange technologies may hold the key to victory, or hasten Earth’s demise in all timelines. Change is coming and the howling winds of war at his back will drive Admiral Mattis onward toward a final confrontation.
One thing is clear: The future is mutable, changeable, malleable. Or is it? Are Mattis’s and Earth’s destinies set in stone? Dark secrets will be revealed, terrifying enemies unleashed, and through it all, the true face of Spectre looms ever closer.
His ship is dead.
His career is dead.
But Spectre is very much alive. And with his plans of galactic domination laid bare, Captain James Mattis must gather what allies he can to stop him.
Admiral Pippa Spears and the HMS Caernarvon make a mysterious discovery in the wreckage of the USS Stennis, one that could change the outcome of the war. And in the uproar after the assassination of the American President she and Captain Mattis race across the galaxy after the suspected shooter, knowing full well the murder is another of Spectre's schemes to throw them off guard while he carries out his sinister plans.
Plans that Mattis and Spears are close to unraveling.
The cost of failure is unthinkable: a destroyed Earth and an unstoppable immortal foe.

Now a US Navy pilot has gone missing. A terrorist group kidnaps a dozen infants. Admiral Mattis's own infant grandson is suddenly and mysteriously ill with a sickness no doctor can--or will--diagnose. No one can piece the puzzle together, until from a derelict future-human ship Mattis finally recovers an actual mutant human, come from the future to destroy Spectre himself.
Because humanity's greatest nemesis is not dead--he is only now ramping up his plan for galactic domination. And the pieces he sets in motion will force Admiral Mattis to make the unthinkable choice between saving a billion people, or saving his only grandson and a dozen other infants.
Spectre must be stopped.
And only one champion can stop him. Or die trying.
The Toralii guns are silent. Humanity’s home of Velsharn is secure. There are no more battles. No more wars. The machinations of a dying man have traded a single life for a species; Captain Melissa Liao’s world is four iron walls and pain, but her suffering buys life for mankind. Her legacy is one of struggle, selflessness, and sacrifice.
Held in the grasp of the Toralii Alliance, she takes little comfort in this. Is this the swansong for war, for steel and blood and gunpowder? Is this the price of peace?

'Every story here is well-written and moving. It’s reassuring to know others have loved and lost their beloved furry or feathered friends, and glorious to see them immortalized in fiction. “Tails of the Apocalypse” is a beautifully rendered collection of stories with a fresh twist on a genre that I normally don’t even like. For me to find it so moving is a testament to the authors and their furry friends."
