A 2012 B.R.A.G. MedallionTM Honoree

It has taken Sebastian Scatkiewicz 7 years to get his life back together again after the US Marines dumped him onto a world of mass unemployment.
He's finally gotten himself some well-paid work on one of the New Worlds in the Outer-Rim, hundreds of light years away from an over-populated, climatically-challenged and resource-poor Earth. Now he's building a new life for himself; something he wants to protect.

Only nothing in the Outer-Rim is as the brochure says. The company's mandate to rule is under threat; the 3rd generation residents are agitating for independence; and the day-to-day politics is both muddy and murderous. Scat keeps his head down; these are things best left to the locals. He's going to stay neutral. This isn't his fight.

If only someone would listen.

Meet the Author

I was born in Bushey, Middlesex, England and grew up in Hatfield, Hertfordshire where I spent my early years mostly covered in mud and grazes. If not gated to the garden, I either stirred up the neighbourhood wasp nests or foraged for the earwigs and spiders I needed to make experimental snacks for my baby brother. I have fond memories of the early 60s.I passed selection for the 21st Special Air Service Regiment at age 17 and was later commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Queen’s Regiment with which I served for several years in Northern Ireland.Since leaving the army in 1986, I have lived and worked in Malaysia, South Africa, Belgium, Singapore and Hong Kong.I started writing scifi in September 2010 and have since published SCAT and BIRDIE DOWN, both based on events in Scat’s Universe. ARMY of SOULS, the sequel to SCAT has recently uploaded to Amazon and Smashwords. SCAT is a big 'what if'. ARMY of SOULS is more of a 'what now'. Both are space operas, which question political systems, economic dependency, compromised regulators, too big to fail businesses, and conflict and vested interest in faith. BIRDIE DOWN is more of an episodic 'shoot em up', akin to a 50s scifi pulp.I now live with Vivien, my Malaysian-born wife, two East Asian street dogs and four pampered cats in Asia’s World City, Hong Kong. It is the company-run city which inspired Go Down City and the Lynthax Corporation in Scat’s Universe.

In the 23rd century, Earth has 21 billion people that must be fed. Resources are limited and declining quickly. The only solution is to mine Outer-Rim planets. Ex-Marine Sebastian Scatkiewicz, Scat, is hired to mine those planets by the largest corporation of them all in the biggest land-grab ever. Once there, he faces a dilemma. He must decide whether to be condemned as a murderer or rebel against the powers that be. The plot twists are exciting and catch you off guard. They make it impossible to stop reading once started. Be warned, you will NOT be able to put it down until the mind blowing conclusion! Best thing of all, a sequel to Scat, Army of Souls, will be released in February or March 2013. Jim also has written another rebellion novel, Birdie Down.

Very good read, good characters good story. The last 3rd of the book leaves you feeling like you are missing some parts as the author skips ahead a bit several times. But still a good book.
