Overview

Across the desolate planet Tulon moves a solitary figure. Jack Brand, former officer in the Tulon Security Force, is on a search. Seven years ago, he led a tactical squad that included his sister, Terry, into a deadly ambush in the desert. The Wilkersons, a Nomad gang who robbed a Trans-Exxon payroll, wiped out four members of his unit, kidnapped Terry, and left Brand for dead. Brand recovered from his wounds, and swore he would never leave Tulon until he found his sister. Over the course of his search, the ex-lawman travels from desert wasteland to steaming jungles, from a city at the bottom of the sea to a domed city run by alien gangsters. Along the way, Brand meets a gallery of exotic characters, falls in love, and survives the barbaric planet through quick wit, fast reflexes, and the Electro-Pistol holstered to his hip...

Editorial Reviews

Lyn Perry
Once an Army Ranger then a member of the Tulon Central Security Force, Jack Brand is now an independent contractor not averse to the occasional bounty hunt or good deed. He's also the title character in "Jack Brand," a collection of stories by John M. Whalen.

I first encountered the Jack Brand stories within the electronic pages of Ray Gun Revival, an online science fiction magazine devoted to space opera. However, there's as much or more Old West adventure as there is science fiction
Midwest Book Review
If there is one thing that never changes, it's the lawlessness of the frontier. "Jack Brand" is a futuristic take on the old western story as titular hero Jack Brand travels across the planet of Tulon to find his sister who was kidnapped seven years ago in an ambush. Along the way, his trip won't be easy as he encounters more than his fair share of unusual individuals out to end him, and perhaps the trickiest thing of all, love. "Jack Brand" is an exciting adventure not to be missed.
