He'll be court-martialed. If he lives that long.
Corporal Cranston Thorne is the black sheep of the family and is about to be kicked out of System Guard for his selfish and reckless behavior.
And his father, Captain Thanos Thorne, would like nothing more than to see that happen. Unfortunately, he can’t stay for the trial. A remote outpost at the edge of the system has gone silent and he must take the fleet out to investigate.
The conflict between father and son will soon prove trivial when the fate of the planet falls into their hands. An emotionally powerful adventure of military SF and space opera action, and a Writers of the Future contest finalist.
“[This] is pure, unadulterated entertainment with a hint that there could maybe be something more down the road. I can’t help but think that it’s been ages since anyone wrote something like this.”
-- Jeffro Johnson, Hugo-nominated editor of Castalia House
