Whispers Of The World That Was

Whispers Final Front

 
In my life, there have been few achievements thus far that have meant as much to me as this one does.

“Whispers Of The World That Was” is not only my official (canon) contribution to my favorite author’s sci-fi universe, it will also be my 60th book in print. It brings the post-apocalyptic world of Wraeththu home, for me, as it takes place in the Gold Country, near the Rift of the Damned. How cool is it, to be able to write about a place that means so much to you, and to be able to write about it in a way that appeals so much to you – and further, to be able to take that writing and put it forth as an accepted contribution to the mythos of an author who shines above all others in your eyes? Beyond cool. I am honored.

Cover Text:

Humanity’s time is done. Wraeththu’s time has begun.

Independent, isolationist and protected by the geography and legends surrounding the Rift of the Damned, the hara of the Gold Country live off what they can salvage from the sunken cities and abandoned towns. While hara of tribes elsewhere awaken to their newfound abilities, learn their bodies and discover new gods, the har-men of the Gold Country cling to the old, familiar ways of the human era.

Even before they were har, the folks of Cinder Hill fought against the tides of an ever-changing world, cursing the laws and politicians that killed every industry, except for Wild West tourism. Now, the laws have gone, the world itself torn apart to birth a wild new way of being. But in Cinder Hill echoes of the past linger on; hara who still deny the changes in themselves get by in the only way they know how – as their hardworking human ancestors once did.

When Tyse and his salvage trawler crewmates haul a mysterious object from the ocean, they initiate a series of events that will bring change to the Gold Country, whether those who live there want it or not. Tyse discovers that his terrifying new state of being is the only way to combat an implacable threat that seeks to eradicate all hara from the Gold Country and beyond. Powerful predators have appeared, their origins unknown, and none can hide from these deadly and apparently indestructible hunters. None except – perhaps – a har in control of his own powers.

Gritty and uncompromising, E. S. Wynn brings a new vision to the ground-breaking Wraeththu Mythos, where the humanity remaining in hara fights to resist the inevitable change, and old prejudices and conditioning hamper the evolution of an isolated tribe.

From the back cover:
Written partly in California and partly in Hawaii, Astride Twin Seas is a collection of sci-fi short stories that bridge a period when the author was between homes, torn between loves and lost between lives.

Black Magic: Shotgun Spacebabe

May 4, 2014 at 9:24 am (Science Fiction)

The year is nineteen aught ninety.

The planet: Gore Gulch.

The shotgun: a sawed-off two gauge punt gun that specialist Black Magic calls “The Deuce.”

Five powerful men just pissed off the wrong woman. Five worlds are on her hit list, and even John Herbert Wilson Thomas, the President of the Republic, will find himself in her sights before her rampage is over.

A thrilling tale of revenge in a high-noon sci-fi setting, Black Magic: Shotgun Spacebabe is an action-packed, tongue-in-cheek trip through the stars with a woman too tough to bleed and too pissed off to die.

Looking for an omnibus edition of The Cygnus War that compiles all seven story arcs into a single paperback? It’s here, it’s awesome, and it’s cheaper than buying all seven books separately. This book is a must for any sci-fi fan. Check it out today!

Not familiar with The Cygnus War? You can read most of the series online (for free) at http://www.cygnuswar.com !

From the back cover:

It is the dawn of the twenty-third century.

Space has been good to the pioneering men and women of the Terran Commonwealth, but in spreading out among the stars and fledgling colonies, mankind has become a rich target for the enigmatic and predatory Cygnan Coralate, a swarm-like civilization that acts with all the cohesion and decisiveness of a single entity.

But humanity is not defenseless– filling the skies with swarms of its own ships, the Earthside Government has drawn a line in the intergalactic sand. At the forefront of the fighting is the Terran Warship Von der Tann IV, home to the legendary semi-atmospheric fighter wing, Minerva Squadron. Follow their struggle for survival as they battle the Cygnan Coralate across the interstellar killing field, blast enemy rigs out of alien skies and plunge headfirst into the unknown in this gripping saga of three women and their struggle to love, to live and to hang on to their humanity in a time when the only thing left for the human race is to fight or be forgotten. Who will live and who will die in the cold, cruel vacuum of space? Only time will tell.

Thrilling squadrons of fans from all over the globe since 2005, The Cygnus War is a story that looks at love, war, and what makes us human in the wake of an interstellar war with the Cygnan Coralate, a shadowy enemy bent on nothing less than the total and complete annihilation of humanity itself.
