Adult
Rated 4.75/5 based on 4 reviews
For rookie Spaceman Harold Douglas, the mission sounded simple enough. Take the squad of Space Marines out, discover why the outpost had gone offline, and bring them back home in one piece. That was before his transport suddenly vanished, stranding them on an alien planet. Now, they’re fighting for their lives against the greatest threat humanity has ever seen.

About Raymond Towers

Greetings, reader. My pen name is Raymond Towers. Primarily, I write darker fiction in the fantasy, horror and science fiction genres, but I do dabble about in other genres as well depending on my whims. I like to think that I have a unique perspective on the world and life in general, and I tend to shake things up to break people out of their doldrums. If you want to read something 'safe,' then I'm probably not the author for you. My favorite authors are in a wide range, from Asimov, Clarke and Farmer, to King, Lovecraft and Poe, to Burroughs, Tolkien and Twain. All the big names, as that is the level I aspire to reach. I especially enjoy combining aspects you won't normally see together in fiction, and on taking the next step and reaching for the farthest, blackest edge of the abyss. The place where most other authors leave off, that is the place where I get started. The question is; are you ready for that?

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 down...read 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.
