Book One Of The Red Sub-Series
The year is 2037AD.
Red: Mars is being colonized by the communist Chinese.
White: The Moon is Russian, but now, just like great swathes of the Siberian steppe, no longer loyal to the Putinists in Moscow.
And Blue: The US is leading a new western renaissance, free finally from the draining trials of the Third Gulf War and decades of economic malaise. The nation, optimistic and resurgent, plans to return to space.
But it seems that space is not as empty as we have been led to believe.
When the sky begins to burn, and not just on one world, we have to face the truth that our only possible allies are our all too human enemies.
About the Author
Colin Taber was born in Australia in 1970 and announced his intention to be a writer at the innocent age of 6. His father, an accountant, provided some cautious advice, suggesting that life might be easier if his son pursued a more predictable vocation.
Colin didn't listen.
Over the past twenty years Colin's had over a hundred magazine articles published, notably in Australian Realms Magazine. In 2009 his first novel, The Fall of Ossard, was released to open his coming of age dark fantasy series, The Ossard Trilogy. The second installment, Ossard's Hope, followed in 2011 and was supported by a national book signing tour. Currently Colin is working on the final book in that trilogy, Lae Ossard, and his new series The United States of Vinland.
Colin has done many things over the years, from working in bookshops to event management, small press publishing, landscape design and even tree farming. All he really wants to do, though, is to get back to his oak grove and be left to write.
Thankfully, with an enthusiastic and growing readership, that day is coming. He currently haunts the west coast city of Perth.
