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!

Rath Peterson and the 7DS are ready to call it quits, and, after their last successful mission, they return home for some well-earned R&R. As the friends settle their affairs and prepare to say their final goodbyes, though, they are offered a new opportunity, a simple job that will add enough to the balance sheets that none of them will ever need to stand in harm’s way again.
A peaceful race, the Votha have rediscovered technology that will allow them to defend their home system, and all the 7DS needs to do is evacuate a research team and their data from an isolated outpost back to their home world. However, within hours of accepting the contract, the 7DS is attacked, and, in the aftermath, they discover that nothing is the way it seems. Word of the Votha’s find has leaked out, and others will stop at nothing to take it for themselves.
To make things worse, powerful interests within the Benthi Federation seize control of the Benth orbital ring, setting off a civil war that leaves them only a few options—none of them good.
But Rath Peterson and his crew have never been ones to run from a fight, and the answer to the fate of four systems is resting in the Merry Dreamer’s cargo bay…
Being a Peacemaker isn’t easy. They’re charged with setting the terms and doing anything which needs to be done—even if it personally costs them everything. They must learn to honor the threat to all life, and, in the end, they must stand or fall, based on their own convictions.
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 Mia R. Kleve and bestselling author Kevin Ikenberry, “Set the Terms” includes fourteen all-new Peacemaker-themed stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of bestselling authors—and some you may not have heard of…yet.
From pigs flying to cats landing on their feet, “Set the Terms” shows Peacemakers at work from the origin of the guild to present day. Journey with a Lumar Peacemaker as he tries to complete his first mission and watch as a Phidae Peacemaker tries to complete his final one. They will have to use their wits as well as their weapons if they hope to remain standing at the end of the day.
Are you ready to set the terms? If so, then step inside!
