It's the year 2176. With 38 billion people choking Planet Earth, civilization is near a breaking point. The only way mankind can survive long-­term is to expand to the stars, but that's somewhere off in the future. Until then, Earth must mine the solar system for iron, copper, and the many other minerals needed in daily life.

Enter James McKie, a 23-­year-­old with a degree in Areology (Martian geology), on his way to his first job in space. Starry-­eyed, he looks forward to making his mark on the Red Planet. But first he has to survive the trip there. A mysterious fire aboard his ship is followed by a crisis on the giant space elevator high above Mars. If he survives all that, he has to brave the perils of Mars itself: rocks slides and planet-­wide dust storms that leave unwary travelers blind in red-­out conditions, unable to find their way home before their oxygen runs out.

And then there's the terrorist.

In the end, there's an incredible discovery waiting to be made: the . . .

From the author of the former Amazon #1 bestselling Military Sci-­fi novel (My Other Car is a Spaceship).

Do you sometimes find yourself using the wrong word (such as discrete vs. discreet), or using a word incorrectly? Are you confused by the differences between similar words (such as shined, shone, and shown, lay and lie, or to, too, and two)? Do you misspell common words (alright vs. all right, or ect. vs. etc.­) and phrases (such as tow the line vs. toe the line)? Do you write fiction, nonfiction, business memos, emails, or anything else that others will read? Then this book is for you.

It explains in simple language the differences between words and phrases that are frequently misused and misspelled, as well as rules for proper punctuation and capitalization, and other elements of English that often trip up the unwary writer. And it does so with frequent humor to keep it from becoming too dry. For example (unfortunately the Amazon sales page doesn't show the formatting): . . .

It was supposed to be a quiet retirement. One minute Hal Nellis, former air force fighter pilot, is mowing his lawn; the next, he finds himself drafted to fight interstellar pirates set on sacking Earth and other backwater worlds.
When the pirate ships acted independently, the civilian Merchants’ Unity had no trouble keeping them under control. But when the pirates organized to better coordinate their activities, they became an unstoppable force, pushing the underfunded Unity to the brink of collapse and leaving backwater worlds like Earth defenseless.
As one of the rare humans with the hypertasking gene, Hal is able to pilot the best the Unity has to offer. With his help, and that of Captain Kalen Jeffries—the son of human slaves, the remaining ships of the Unity plan a last-­ditch effort to break the pirate hegemony. Succeed, and the pirate organization is crushed forever; fail, and the people of Earth and countless other worlds are doomed to slavery and death.
Prepare for a . . .

It was supposed to be a routine prospecting mission, but something went wrong.

With 43 billion souls crammed together on Mother Earth and using up natural resources at an unsustainable rate, the essential minerals that support human civilization are in desperately low supply. Tesserene, the mineral that makes starflight travel possible, is especially critical. Without it, humans are effectively imprisoned on their home world.

When prospecting ship Shamu is almost destroyed in a distant asteroid belt, Swede Johansen and rest of the crew of five is left with three days of air, little water, a smashed starflight drive, and no hope of rescue. It will take every ounce of ingenuity and stubborn pigheadedness they possess to find a way to survive.

Assuming they find a solution, the ultimate jackpot awaits them in the shadows of a distant moon—if the galaxy doesn't kill them first.
