About the Author
My new sci-fi novel "The Battle for Eden" is finally out! It's part of a double back-to-back paperback, paired with Charles Gramlich's novel "Under the Ember Star". This story is the 3rd in a series of books about the war between humans and Knackers (a crab-like carnivorous alien species). The novel is written as a stand-alone story, so reading the prior 2 books in the series is not necessary; you can understand and enjoy "Eden" on its own!
I'm currently working on another book in the Knacker series, which I hope to have finished later this year, entitled "Dark Angels."You can read free samples of all my works on my Facebook site, look me up as "Authorvet", and click "Notes" near the top of the page, for samples of each story! If you like what you see, then feel free to share the pages with your friends!

The story of the Human versus Knacker war began with Ardath Mayhar, who wrote a book called Slaughterhouse World. Later, Robert Reginald wrote a story set in the same universe called Knack Attack. The Battle for Eden by Mark E. Burgess is a third book set in the same universe. Although related to each other in that they take place in the same universe, each book explores a different, and stand-alone, element of the human war against the spider/crab like Knacker, who ultimately enjoy using humans for food. In The Battle for Eden, the human spaceforce puts up a desperate defense of a planet called Eden as the Knacker fleet arives. A human pilot named Simon Roy is shot down over the planet after he takes a toll on the attackers. He manages a controlled crash and is found by the daughter of a local farmer. Roy joins this family as they dig in against the legions of Knacker now pouring onto the planet from the aliens' landing craft. Very interesting characters in an interesting setting. The characters have backgrounds that get gradually unveiled throughout the book, and all is set against the deadly threat posed by the Knacker invasion. Good action sequences throughout keep the threat front and center. I enjoyed it a lot. Charles Gramlich
