Overview

2013 PULP ARK NOMINEE - BEST NOVEL

Humanity has gone to the stars!

Earth, once barren and decimated by war and the depletion of natural resources has been reborn. Through much hardship and difficult conditions, a coalition of several large corporations have terraformed the planet and have made it a paradise. Many believe this is a giant leap in finding a plausible solution to the increasing population problem. There are no planets available to support the entirety of the human race. Therefore, the children of Earth have spread themselves out to other planets. Humanity has gone to the stars.

The reformation of Earth’s atmosphere is seen as a positive step toward reuniting mankind by letting humanity return to its roots.

Until The Coalition hangs a big "no trespassing" sign on the lawn.

Humans have settled distant planets and have yet to encounter any alien species, though many believe that they are out there.

Floating on a barren rock called Axapta III, an enemy from humanity's past has reawakaned.

And they are angry.

Today, Scavengers prey on small mining towns and colonies. The United Planetary Alliance Marshall's Service seems unable to stop these raids. Marshall Maxwell Vortex’s officers are out-manned and out-gunned. They are the only law enforcement on many colony worlds.

Newly promoted Captain, Virgina Harmon accepts her first command, the starship Pegasus, a ship designed to deal with the Scavenger problem. Plagued by nervousness over her first command, Captain Harmon is rocked by the news that her mentor has been murdered just days before he was to report to her aboard the Pegasus as chief of engineering.

In Earth orbit, a science station becomes a target. The newly returned enemy has a plan to use the Space Lab facility as a means to claiming Earth, a planet they have decided will be their new home world.

In deep space, the starship Ulysis welcomes aboard Admiral James McKeen, a high-ranking officer with a special mission for Captain William Andrews and his crew. McKeen has uncovered evidence that those plotting against the Alliance are prepared to make their move and it is up to the crew of the Ulysis to stop them.

Earthstrike Agenda follows the skeleton crew aboard the Pegasus, the inhabitants of Space Lab, the Marshal’s Service, the crew of the Ulysis, and an enemy bent on their destruction.

Meet the Author

From his secret lair in the wilds of Bethlehem, Georgia, Bobby Nash writes. A multitasker, Bobby is certain that he doesn’t suffer from ADD, but instead he... ooh, shiny.

When he finally manages to put fingers to the keyboard, Bobby writes novels (Evil Ways; Fantastix; Deadly Games!;), comic books (Fuzzy Bunnies From Hell; Demonslayer; Domino Lady vs. The Mummy; Lance Star: Sky Ranger “One Shot”), short prose (A Fistful of Legends; Full Throttle Space Tales Vol. 2: Space Sirens; Green Hornet Case Files; Tales of The Rook; Zombies vs. Robots), novellas (Lance Star: Sky Ranger; Ravenwood: Stepson of Mystery; Nightbeat; Blackthorn: Thunder on Mars), graphic novels (Yin Yang; I Am Googol: The Great Invasion; Bloody Olde Englund), screenplays (Zenoids: “Animal Crackers”, Starship Farragut: “Conspiracy of Innocence”), and even a little pulp fiction (Domino Lady; Secret Agent X; The Avenger; The Spider) just for good measure. And despite what his brother says, Bobby swears he is not addicted to buying DVD box sets and can quit anytime he wants to. Really.

When not writing fiction, Bobby is usually talking about his books and writing fiction at conventions and writers conferences. Bobby is also a part-time extra in movies and television, is the co-host of the weekly Earth Station One podcast (www.esopodcast.com), and writes for the All Pulp () news site.

    Earthstrike Agenda Review I just finished ¿Earthstrike Agenda¿

    Earthstrike Agenda Review

    I just finished ‘Earthstrike Agenda’ by Bobby Nash. As that I’m a Sci-Fi guy and love all things about the genre I was naturally drawn to the book.
    It’s a galaxy spanning adventure set in the future. And it’s a future where mankind is really the master of all he surveys, except for two things; we’re running out of space and for some reason we’ve abandoned Earth save for the wealthy who have made it a paradise for themselves. Everyone else has gone to the stars.
    But out there in the depths of space awaits danger for some of mankind. There are those who would take the Earth back. They are in the form of beings of artificial intelligence, in other words androids along with humans who are known as scavengers. Between the two factions as well as those who have infiltrated the ranks of the military space patrol they have created quite a deadly force.
    Earthstrike Agenda is a book that tends to jump around a bit between several main characters serving on different vessels and even a space lab in orbit around the Earth. It’s a story about a clandestine plot to take the Earth back and fill it again with refugees and those who are less savory than others.

    Earthstrike Agenda is a fun read and a good story that holds your attention from cover to cover. It has enough intrigue to satisfy anyone looking for a mystery and enough action to keep everyone else happy. It’s a win-win book that’s a great read. Go get your copy today. Five Stars
