He'll be court-martialed. If he lives that long.

Corporal Cranston Thorne is the black sheep of the family and is about to be kicked out of System Guard for his selfish and reckless behavior.

And his father, Captain Thanos Thorne, would like nothing more than to see that happen. Unfortunately, he can't stay for the trial. A remote outpost at the edge of the system has gone silent and he must take the fleet out to investigate.

The conflict between father and son will soon prove trivial when the fate of the planet falls into their hands. An emotionally powerful adventure of military SF and space opera action, and a Writers of the Future contest finalist.

About the Author

If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan's protégé. But since that career path seemed less than promising, he has instead been a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher in civilian life. Today (summer, 2014) he and his family live in south Texas, where the heat makes smelling like an animal a natural part of life. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
