Skythane

Volume 1 of The Oberon Cycle

Oberon is a strange half-world, a planet seemingly cut in two, with not sign of what happened to the missing half. The world is the only known source of pith, a drug with many legitimate as well as illicit uses. Only, the supply of pith seems to have dried up, so the Psych Corps sends Jameson to Oberon to investigate. His guide is Xander, a Skythane, the descendants of the original human settlers who we genetically modified to have wings. The two take an instant dislike of one another, but neither man is prepared for what they're about to find out about themselves, and the fate of two worlds hangs on their ability to embrace their destiny.

Review - Astounding! by Kim Fielding

Astounding!

Carter Evans is the founder and editor of the science fiction magazine Astounding! but the publication, like most print media these days, is on its last legs. Carter can't afford to keep it going for much longer. Adding to his headaches are the submissions of one J. Harper, a very persistent, and very bad, author who keeps sending in new versions of his work despite numerous rejections. Carter's drunken attempt to rebuff the writer backfires and he ends up meeting J. for John Harper in person. John turns out to be a charming if somewhat awkward man with a few eccentricities, chief of which is the belief that he is an alien stranded on Earth. More...

Review - More Than Human by Mel Keegan

More Than Human

By the end of the 23rd century, humanity has established its first colony outside the solar system, on a planet called Eidolon. The achievement required not only advancements in spacecraft engineering, but also cybernetics, since augmentation was required to make humans capable of deep space flight and living on an alien world larger than Earth. As you can imagine, it takes no time at all for cybernetic implants to become mainstream, with everyone from athletes to high class escorts getting augmented to improve their game. And, just as inevitably, there's a backlash. A political movement calling itself the Pure Light comes to power promising restore humanity to its ‘proper’ state. Augmentation is outlawed, and those deemed more than 50% machine are made the property of the government. Chips are implanted in their brains to make them virtual slaves and they're either used for experimentation, hard labor in the mines of the gas giants, or soldiers used to enforce the Pure Light's power.
