Description

From the ashes of the outer remnants of the First Empire, a powerful rival to its ancient glory has risen. After ruthlessly dominating its neighbors, the New Empire launches yet another campaign, and this one will take it deeper than ever into the old empire's former realm. Its target is the small Hellsbridge Sub-Federation Tri-System, but when the assault begins with a force that should have been overwhelming, the result is more than puzzling. As reinforcements are fed into the battle, it quickly becomes a clash of interstellar empires, in which the fates of entire worlds ride on the outcome of a macabre chess game played on an epic scale.show more

About Ken Doggett

Ken Doggett has been writing for years, mostly short stories published in various Science Fiction magazines, including Space & Time, Shayol, and Amazing Stories. Now he self publishes his own novels and short-story collections. Growing up in the sunny Southeastern U.S., he developed a love for reading right after he discovered the school library. He read almost everything, but was especially fascinated by the fantastic tales of spaceships, space exploration, and conflict among the stars. He eventually discovered writers who would become his favorites-Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, John W. Campbell, and later, Larry Niven and Harlan Ellison. He graduated from Avondale High School just outside Atlanta, and after a stint in the U.S. Army assigned to the 2nd Armored Division at Ft. Hood, Texas, he worked in the field of electronics and electronic technology. After a few years of reading all of those great Science Fiction stories, he decided to try his hand at writing some of his own, and placed his first published story, Timestopper, in the July 1981 issue of Amazing Stories. Eventually, with more of his stories reaching publication, he became a veteran writer in the Science Fiction genre. But he has done more in the arts than write a few stories. He once thought he could draw and paint pictures, and he created and sold a few landscape paintings, both oil and acrylic. He currently lives in a rural farming community in Morgan County, Georgia, where he now writes full time.show more
