About Peter Bostrom
Peter Bostrom is the pen name of Nick Webb as he co-writes Science Fiction with other authors. The Last War series is by Nick Webb and David Adams.
Nick lives in Seattle, and someday wants to be the first man to die on Mars. Not like a heroic, failed-Nasa-mission style death where he plummets through the thin atmosphere and crashes into Olympus Mons, but a calm one in a hospital with plenty of fantasy books to ease his passing.
David lives down under, and besides the occasional military sci-fi novel, also writes about kobolds.

Titles By Peter Bostrom
20 years after the American-Chinese war devastated our worlds, we finally have a tense peace. But legendary American Admiral Jack Mattis, on his inspection tour of the first joint American-Chinese space station, finds himself in the middle of the unthinkable: an alien invasion.
Their ships are powerful, their weapons overwhelming. And in the confusion, our tentative peace with the Chinese is shaken to the core.
Taking command of his old battleship, The Midway, Admiral Mattis races the alien fleet to Earth, desperate to prevent the utter destruction of humanity's home. And in Earth's darkest hour, Mattis must unify and lead old adversaries to the fight against a common enemy, one that doesn't care about flags or borders. An enemy driven by malevolent hate and a thirst for blood. An enemy that cares for one thing only: Earth's destruction.
Another ship travels from humanity's bleak future, targets a populated planet ... and lays it waste in a fiery apocalypse. Nothing survives, and the ship disappears. In the midst of the recovery, Admiral Jack Mattis finds more questions than answers as he tracks down the dreadfully powerful enemy ship.
But the most pressing question: why are these mutated humans from the future relentlessly attacking us? What do they want? And at what cost?
And are these the same creatures created by the genetic research corporation exposed by Mattis on the planet Chrysalis?
The answers lie at the root of a deep conspiracy that goes beyond governments, beyond corporations. A conspiracy that will stop at nothing to succeed, and achieve ultimate power over humanity.
And as the deadly ship prepares for its final catastrophic strike, Admiral Jack Mattis and the crew of the Midway are the last defense between us, and our last dawn.
For six months after the failed alien attack American Admiral Jack Mattis has been ordered to patrol the periphery to stop more alien incursions.
Even though he knows the attackers weren't alien, but grotesque mutated super-humans from the future. A truth world governments publicly deny.
And now an American scientist witnesses an experimental super-weapon gone awry at a top-secret genetic lab in deep space, while a rebel veterans group storms a Chinese embassy on an American world. Tensions flare, and the American-Chinese peace begins to fray.
Admiral Mattis races to put out the fires, while trying to piece together the mystery of the future human invasion, knowing that failure means not only certain death for him, but for the entire human race.
The clock is ticking.
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.
Private Lucas Walker never thought he'd be a hero. As a grunt in United Federation of Sol's peacekeeper force deployed to Pluto's tiny moon Nix, the furthest barren hellhole in the solar system, he thought his career was all but over even before it began. He day-dreams of lightsabers, vampires, battlecats, wizards, and all things sci-fi and fantasy while he repairs sand-clogged equipment and mops floors.
Then everything changes....
A spatial-temporal vortex opens on Pluto, and out pours an army. A deadly force intent on capturing Earth and enslaving humanity in its quest for universal domination. All universes, all galaxies, all planets--all will kneel and submit to The Dominion. The crap has hit the fan. UFS marines are overwhelmed. The odds look grim. Humanity teeters on the edge. The future of civilization now depends on Private Walker and his ragtag band of misfit UFS peacekeepers, armed only with weapons stolen from the enemy. He needs to figure this hero thing out fast...
...or all is lost.
But he can't rest on his laurels. Neptune's moon Triton is the next target of the spatial-temporal vortex, and is invaded by an army of what seem like vampires. And to make matters worse, Walker's newfound powers seem to be fading, and hope seems lost.
Earth needs a hero again. Can Private Lucas Walker go two for two? Laser sword? Check. Power glove? Check. Warrior cat? Check. Give the alien vampires an ass-kicking? No problem.
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.
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.
The United Federation of Sol is baffled by these new alien weapons and their only hope is to reinstate Walker--the military's only expert in Old Earth lore. But can Walker convince his former teammates to join him--and his new pint-sized partner--for one more mission before these villains from a suspiciously familiar world of wizards can apparate an entire Dominion army? Or will his preteen protege spell the end of both Walker and our galaxy?
If you liked the irreverent action-adventure of Guardians of the Galaxy, the nerdy nostalgia of Ready Player One, and the sci-fi self-awareness of Redshirts, this is the series for you!
A Space Station Destroyed...
As America celebrates 20 years of peace with the Chinese, Admiral Jack Mattis goes on an inspection tour of the first joint American-Chinese space station. Tensions remain high, but lasting peace in our time finally looks possible.
Out of nowhere, the unthinkable happens. A mysterious alien force appears, obliterating an American space station, and aiming straight for the joint US-PRC base Mattis is touring, sending the defenders scrambling.
It's impossible. In a hundred years of deep space exploration, aliens were never to be found.
A War Hero on the Run...
The aliens are relentless. And unthinkably powerful. Their ships sweep the defenders aside in a rain of fire, shrapnel, and terror.
All appears lost.
But Admiral Jack Mattis has won his share of desperate battles and overcome steep odds before. It falls squarely on his shoulders to rally the defenders and fight this terrifying new enemy.
And Old Hatred Dies Hard...
In the face of the new threat, Admiral Mattis races the aliens to Earth, knowing that if he fails, Earth falls. A genocide. The end of human civilization.
But old tensions between former enemies simmer to the surface, and Mattis must rally old enemies to face the common threat. And in the chaos, a multi-government conspiracy rears its head, and threatens to undo everything humanity has achieved in a thousand years.
Human civilization is on the line.
And only one old war hero can save it.
God help us all.
