Paul B. Spence is a practicing archaeologist who hopes to one day get it right. He is a member of the Society for American Archaeology. Paul currently lives in New Mexico, where all the cool kids hang out, with too many cats.
Like most authors, he had an eclectic career path. He's worked as a retail gofer, a food service monkey, brute laborer, a rennie, a writer for the RPG industry, and many other rewarding jobs that didn't pay enough to feed him or his cats.
The war between the Sentient Concord and the Earth Federation grinds on, but dark forces are moving behind the scenes, forces intent on unleashing terror on a scale never seen before, a terror that has already spread beyond Commander Hrothgar Tebrey's universe.
Lt. Commander Hrothgar Tebrey is assigned as a military attaché to an archaeological expedition marooned on a planet by the tides of war. Tebrey must fight against a seemingly unstoppable enemy to save not just himself, the expedition, and the woman he loves, but his very soul. Some things are worth dying for; it is the things worth living for that matter.
Lt. Commander Hrothgar Tebrey returns to duty on the eve of interstellar war. He is hunted across the Earth Federation by the hellish Theta entities that want him dead, and are willing murder entire worlds to make it happen.
