There was only one problem. He got bored. What does a ‘Legend’ do when even the merc life gets boring? He starts his own company! Along with buddy Kal Turner, they marshalled their Torvasi and Andori troopers and began taking contracts. A force for good, Quincy went about the galaxy, killing aliens and getting paid, while righting all the wrongs he found along the way.
His only problem was that he was successful—too successful—and some races don’t take losing very well. Worse, they’re willing to stop at nothing—even blowing up a planet, if that’s what it takes—in order to get even with Quincy.
Can Martin find out who’s framing him and bring them to justice? Perhaps the real question is, “Will he have time?” His Sirra’Kan princess partner’s biological clock is ticking, her father Kor’Findralis, the Prime of Te’Warri, wants an heir, and now Quincy has a Blevin mistress to somehow work into the mix. What happens when you long for the simplicity of combat? You take more contracts because, on a mission, the worst thing that can happen to you is you get killed!
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.
Sixteen outstanding authors have come to this Fallen World with stories that take place from the islands off the coast of Washington to the plains of central Europe; from the swamps of Florida to the streets of Philadelphia. These stories document the fall…and introduce you to people who might just drag civilization back from the ashes…

One thing Zebadiah Pratt—or Zee to his friends—won’t abide, though, is slavery, even in a Fallen World. So when friends of his find a shipment of gene-modified slaves—and children at that—he knows something must be done.
There’s only one problem—the slaves came from an island owned by the infamous Dr. Laroue, a noted geneticist and the creator of many of the imprints the Obsidian Corporation used to create its super-soldiers.
He’s going to need help.
But Zee has friends, including gene-modified youngsters that he’d previously set free, a brother who was a super assassin, and he knows other people he can call in favors from, like former Corporate hostage rescue negotiator Joshua Collins. Although Collins is currently without his imprint, he has been modified with the body of an Agent and still has some of their abilities.
Collins is also good friends with Luc Boudreaux, a former Corporate officer who has a number of Agents working for him. If he can talk Boudreaux into “loaning” some of his Agents to help with the mission to Laroue’s infamous island, they may just have a chance.
But Laroue has countless gene-modified creatures and Agents of his own—including a new and improved one—and he won’t go quietly into the good night. Can Zee’s collection of do-gooders make a difference in this Fallen World, or will the world fall even farther into darkness?
The apocalypse is coming! Scientists and science fiction novelists have long predicted various forms of the apocalypse, from plagues to wars to aliens. If there’s a way to end civilization, someone has probably prophesized it. Civilizations rise and civilizations fall…but are you ready for it to happen to you? How will you survive and thrive in the event of an apocalypse?
Edited by Jamie Ibson and Chris Kennedy, “We Dare: Semper Paratus” is a collection of 15 all-new stories that explore the apocalypse and what happens next—from surviving the fall to getting through those first perilous days, to learning how to adapt and survive in the new world survivors find themselves in.
What happens when the nations of Earth fall to a nuclear war, and you’re trapped between the combatants on Mars? What if you need to cross a continent to get to the only safe place? How do you survive living in a Fallen World?
One thing is certain—like every civilization before ours, at some point, ours will fall. Will you be ready when that happens? Our authors have dared to look at every type of apocalypse from nuclear war to shadow monsters to darkness falling, and they are ready for the end of the world…are you prepared as well?

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.
What do you do when the odds are stacked against you? Mercs plan, strategize, and sometimes even scheme, but there is one thing they all believe—luck is never a factor.
Unless it is.
Enter 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 Chris Kennedy and Mark Wandrey, “Luck is Not a Factor” includes all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of bestselling authors—and some you may not have heard of…yet. The nineteen authors take on various aspects of the universe, giving you additional insight into a galaxy that isn’t at war…but definitely isn’t at peace. There’s only one thing for sure—anything’s possible for a fistful of credits!

For Zebediah Pratt, or “Zee” to his friends, the answer is easy—he goes back to the family farm to support his father. By pooling resources with their neighbors in the countryside, they’re able to stand up to the lone gunmen that are on the lookout for easy prey in a world where the rule of law no longer applies. It looks like they will be able to make it.
But when the dregs of society come leaking out to the countryside from the ruins of nearby Philadelphia, things change, and the Pratts realize something—they have to do more. Unless they take food into the city, the city will come out to get it from them by force, trampling them and their way of life in the process.
You would think it would be easy to give away food in a fallen world, but in a city where only the strong survive—and they are used to taking what they want—things can get complicated, especially when Zee decides that the policies of slavery have to end for the warlords to get fed. Will Zee be able to feed an entire city, or will the warlords break him, too, just like they have everyone else who’s tried to stand up to them?
Unfortunately for the warlords, Zee has a secret weapon—he has a Jimmy.
Matthew Kade was a corporate assassin—one of the best Agents Obsidian Corporation had. But then the bombs began falling, and the old world ended. Now he must navigate the new world he finds himself in, a world where the strongest survive, and the weaker do their bidding…or die.
Although Agents were imprinted with the skills they needed for their current mission, when the world Fell, the entire identity database got dumped into his head. With thousands of personalities running around in his noggin, one thing is sure. No matter whether Kade is battling Teledyne Specialists in the streets, Geno Freaks in the sewers, or Zone Warlords in their Scrapers, he’s got an imprint for that.
Enter the Fallen World as seen through the eyes of Kade as he completes five different missions, and then get a special look at the birth of the Kade imprint in Kade: Origin. “Kade” includes six previously released short stories as well as almost 17,000 words of new Kade material.
When bodies began falling from Scrapers, you know Kade is nearby.
