Rated 4.75/5 based on 4 reviews
Inspired by such movies as Aliens and Starship Troopers, as well as the book The Red Badge Of Courage, this novella follows the plight of a squad of Space Marines on a hostile planet. Least among them is the novice Spaceman Douglas, who has hardly seen the atrocities of war, and who must quickly adapt to his environment if any of them are to make it out alive. More

About Raymond Towers

Greetings, reader. My pen name is Raymond Towers, and I am Hispanic generally, and Chicano specifically. I was born on the second day of June, in the year of 1970, in San Diego, California, and for the greater majority of my life I have called San Diego my home. I have been writing... well, forever. Ever since I could hold a writing instrument, and read a book of fiction, I knew that I wanted to be a professional writer. Alas, I was not ready, and not until my fortieth year did I finally have the time and the energy to commit to the craft.

I am ready now. Let me take you by the hand, and let us soar to places you are familiar with, or to places you've never before imagined. Let me show you what I've seen with my eyes, what I've dreamt of and envisioned, and what my imagination, experience and wisdom has conjured up for the two of us. I have many, many grand stories to tell you.

Most of my titles have adult content. If necessary, adjust the adult content filter to view them.

Review by: Mike Lee on July 16, 2011 :
I enjoyed this story, enough that I wish the author had made it last a little longer. The pace is pretty fast, you will want to read it in one sitting. I will read this author again, and recommend others try him out. This was much better than average on the "free" list... much better.

Review by: David Briggs on April 17, 2011 :
Earth is at war with the disgusting “Roaches”, an outpost falls unexpectedly silent, a “crack” squad of Space Marines is sent to investigate with a “rookie” Second Officer as part of the Transport Crew. They get trapped on a strange planet and have to fight their way out of a hopeless “Non-Retrieval” situation. Sound familiar? It should! Openly borrowing from “Starship Troopers” (Robert Heinlein), “Aliens” (Ridley Scott) and “The Red Badge of Courage” (Stephen Crane) the story is a gung-ho shoot 'em up set on a distant planet in the not-so-distant future. Look out for the indigenous vegetation though. Enjoy as a short novella!

Aliens and alien planets at their best! I could not put this one it cover to cover in one sitting. Strong characters, vivid descriptions and tense action. Definitely put this one in your library, and I'm off to search for more by this author.
