The black boundless sea,
empty as the human heart.
Space: the Endless Dark.

The Endless Dark Universe is a space-faring science fiction realm where the plutarchy of the Combine dominates humanity. But a new species–even more fearsome than mankind–is about to make itself known.
This is based on my very first novel, written in 2003 and waiting to be rewritten and published in a modern incarnation. Right now, I’m working on the Cold Stars series, which will paint the picture of the universe and set up some of the main characters. Then the novels of The Endless Dark will drive home a more linear storyline.
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 the previous cover for Legacy by Julius Camenzind, which I really liked but I think gave the impression it was more of a kids’ story. But I liked it so much, I wanted to post it here to keep it alive.
A naval scientist leads the expedition to explore a ghost ship in space. Only he can unlock its secrets. And once he does, the universe will never be the same.
A young sniper in training faces his final exam. And now he’ll find out whether he’s predator or prey.
A sarcastic bounty hunter and beautiful assassin join forces, but their quarry is far more dangerous than either imagined.
Three tales of military science fiction, mysterious space opera, and daring pulp adventure, delivered to you from between the Cold Stars and the Endless Dark.
