Salvage System is a beacon of hope, and a number of other races continue looking toward it as an inspiration for how to live and govern themselves, and—in some cases—for assistance in defending themselves and throwing off oppressive regimes.
But the galaxy is a big place, and many of the races in it aren’t friendly. Would these forces like to take over Salvage System and acquire its resources? Absolutely.
Fifteen incredible authors take you further into the Salvage Title universe, giving you looks at some of the beacons of hope…and some of the malevolence that has yet to show its face. Can Harmon Tomeral and his friends hold out against it? Take a look inside and find out!

With Whispering Pines refusing to give up and die, Jace “Long Pork” Stanford has nothing better to do than find out who the heavily-armed newcomers in town are. Well, while he’s not busy dealing with the ever present Z hordes. Or running for his life from paramilitary mercenaries. Or possibly blowing up more of the zombie-infested city because he can’t help pressing buttons. Buttons are meant to be pressed, even in the apocalypse, right?
Looks like it’s just another day in Z-Burbia!
“Loved this book and loved the series so far. Not sure what took me so long to discover it as I am a big zombiephile. This book has all the elements I love in a story, very character driven, with soldiers, strong women, sassy teens, and some smart ass men.” -Michele, 5-star Goodreads review
“Jace and his crew are back in Book 2 and it is just as hilarious as the first. I find that sometimes authors hit a home run with their first books but never quite live up to the same standard with each additional book. Not so with Jake Bible. It is rare that I read a book that makes me laugh out loud.” -Veronica, 5-star Goodreads review
“A fast paced, action packed sequel that had me hooked from the beginning. I loved the snark from Jace 'Long Pork' and the sarcastic wit, it made the book memorable, fantastic narration.” -Mia, 5-star Goodreads review

Roak is once again on the hunt for the dark tech known as Pol Hammon. From the tavern planet of Xippee to the desert planet known as Outpost Hell, Roak must race across the galaxy to find his prey all while being pursued and attacked by the entity known as Father.
Roak will need every weapon in his arsenal and every ally in the galaxy to stay ahead of the death and carnage that follows him like a quantum wake of blood and destruction!
It’s the Twenty-Second Century. Humanity has taken its first steps into the galaxy, and we’ve found ourselves in a vast playground of alien races, environments, and cultures. As the newest players on the universal stage, though, our position is readily apparent—we’re at the bottom of the food chain.
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. While some of the stories inside deal with mercenaries, others introduce readers to the other guilds, organizations, and races that make up the landscape of the Four Horsemen universe, and many of them provide background information to the mainline novels. There’s even a new form of life to get acquainted with and a look at alien interaction at its youngest level!
Edited by bestselling authors and universe creators Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy, “For a Few Credits More” includes sixteen all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of bestselling authors—and some you may not have heard of…yet. It’s a world where you can get anything you want. Some things, though, are only available for a few credits more!

When the zombie apocalypse hits the quiet Asheville, NC subdivision of Whispering Pines, the residents don't turn to the police or the military. Nope. They rely on their iron-fisted Home Owners Association! Which Jace Stanford and his family aren’t too keen on. Undead hordes are hard enough to deal with in a post-apocalyptic hellscape, who needs HOA fines too?
Filled with blood, gore, plenty of bad jokes, cannibals, dreaded HOA covenants, and a whole lot of snark, Z-Burbia is guaranteed to thrill and entertain!
Welcome to life in Z-Burbia!
“The first novel in Jake Bible’s series Z-Burbia hooked me. What appeared to be a jokey take on zombie fiction quickly develops some great characters and story.” -BoingBoing.net
“For those still not convinced about the zombie genre, Z-Burbia is worth a read if only for its female characters: Jake Bible doesn’t have time for vapid whimpering damsels in distress. Oh no. Bible’s characters are thinking, acting, feisty sorts.” -Lee Murray, Bram Stoker Award-winning novelist
“5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Zombie - and more. Quick, strong, gory, exciting, explosive, non-stop action. The opening part of the book does warn there will be gore, which if you are reading a zombie apocalypse book should not be a shock. Mr. Bible delivers all these. BUT he also delivers believable characters with different reasons for doing what they do. A developing political structure rising out of the ashes of civilization - from the Home-Owners Association tyrant to the constant battle between urban-and-rural. Big battles and little battles - zombies being weaponized, and parents raising kids in the Z-hellscape to be responsible adults. The layers take this book to the next level.” -Erin Penn, Vine Voice, amazon.com
“I love my zombies and this series is by far my favorite. The main character is just amazingly done, cause I agree that we all need a laugh in the zombie apocalypse.” -UglyCasanova, 5-star Goodreads review
The American Midwest was a bucolic landscape that didn’t quite adjust to the zombie apocalypse. Instead of open arms and welcoming faces, there are now open mouths and ravenous Zs. The blue collar drive to work hard has become a red-mouthed hunger for flesh.
Jace Stanford, his family, and the rag tag bunch of Whispering Pines survivors, private military contractors, laborers, and former (hopefully?) cannibals now must face the vast, exposed space of America’s Heartland in order to get to a possible sanctuary in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Boulder, Colorado.
Just a simple convoy from point A to point B, right? Yeah, right.
Nothing is ever simple in Z-Burbia!
“Wow! Another great read by Jake Bible! From us finally figuring out why Jace talks to himself, to there being something much worse than zombies. Looking forward to the next book!” -Rachel Montoya, 5-star Goodreads review
“I laughed so hard my eyes leaked. Jace and his antics are so funny. Next in the series now please!?” -Susu, 5-star Goodreads review
Jace Stanford has lost family, friends, and his arm to the zombie apocalypse that hit his subdivision of Whispering Pines. But he’s also gained something he never in a million years would have thought would be a plus: the cannibal savant known as Elsbeth.
Now Jace needs Elsbeth’s help more than ever. But is she up to the task when her past is revealed? A past that is possibly more shocking than the zombie apocalypse itself? Jace is gonna find out the hard way.
And, as everyone knows, in Z-Burbia the hard way usually means a whole lot of people are going to die!
Welcome back to Z-Burbia, y’all!
“I have really enjoyed this series, and Z-Burbia 3: Estate of the Dead did not disappoint. It was cool to finally get a few answers on Elsbeth's past - where she came from and how she became the badass she is today. With lots of laughs, killing, and of course...zombies, this is a great series for anyone into apocalyptic thrillers. I can't wait to start book four!” -Jennifer Murphy, 5-star Goodreads review
“This series gets better with every book.The action grabs you from the start and doesn't let up.Unlike a lot of zombie books these characters feel well rounded and believable. I can't wait to start on the next book.” Christine Delong, 5-star Goodreads review
With the plains to their backs, Jace Stanford and crew are just steps from their destination: the Stronghold of Boulder, CO. All they have to do is battle the mega-powerful, corporate/political/military entity that is the Consortium, survive the brainwashed killing machines that call themselves the Sisters, and deal with a mad scientist hell bent on making life really, really hard for everyone because he’s just a f*ing jerk.
Not a problem! If anyone can get his friends and family through a nightmare like this, it’s Jace Stanford!
What’s that? There’s a horde of zombies that’s close to half a million strong coming for them all?
Okay, everyone’s screwed…
It is Z-Burbia after all!
“It's the last push to reach safety for Long Pork and his very extended family. Lots of fighting, swearing, laughs and tears as Jace carries on with his bumbling, brilliant plans, stumpageddon and his "thoughts out loud". There is continuous action, with barely a moment to catch your breath throughout the whole book.” -PJ Lea, 5-star Goodreads review
“It's hard to keep coming up with unique situations and solutions to those situations but Jake bible does it with a F*ck ton of humor and violence. I like the characters, scratch that, I love the characters. I recommend it for the horror/humor crowd.” -Stephanie H, 5-star Goodreads review
Forced out of Asheville, Jace Stanford’s family, along with a convoy of suburbanites, misfits, criminals, and soldiers, must battle their way through the I-40 corridor of Eastern Tennessee.
When they are separated from their friends and allies in Knoxville, the Stanfords have to rely on their skills as post-apocalyptic survivors to fight off the Zs, insane Vols fans, homicidal sorority girls, and the most deadly of the post-apocalyptic threats- cannibal gangs!
No longer are the Stanfords trying to survive day by day, but hour by hour and minute by minute, as they flee Z-Burbia and race through the hellscape of Cannibal Road!
“Once again Mr. Bible has cracked me up in the zombie apocalypse! Jace is still funny as hell, I love him. Elsbeth is still bad ass and she is my favorite. Stella and the kids brought out some cans of whoop ass as well!” -Melissa Martin, 5-star Goodreads review
“I'm running out of things to say about how much I love this series. Each book is just as good as the last.” -Jennifer Wheeler, 5-star Goodreads review
And Roak is pretty much done with it all.
Except he doesn't get to be done. He has one more hunt left. A hunt to find and finally kill Father.
If Roak survives the galactic war he's about to start.
Calling on every alliance and tenuous relationship he has, Roak has to scrape together enough forces to take on a galaxy's worth of warships.
He doesn't have an Eight Million Gods damn chance in all the Hells, but that's never stopped Roak before!
When a top secret, undercover mission goes wrong for one of the company's operatives, Ballantine must call on Team Grendel and the crew of the Beowulf III to take down a drug lord and stop Southern California from being overrun by a new substance more addictive and deadly than any drug on the planet.
But things are never that simple as Team Grendel find they are under siege by cloned Megalodon sharks that developed a taste for the new substance, sending the monsters on a drug fueled rampage of bloody violence along the Baja Mexico coastline!
Blood is in the water and the feeding frenzy is on!
