Stephen Ames Berry is the author of four science fiction novels first published by Ace/Berkley and Tor/Macmillan, and of The Eldridge Conspiracy, a tale spun from his time at the Pentagon and the myth of the Navy's World War II ship invisibility project, the Philadelphia Experiment. He's now writing his sixth novel. A graduate of Boston University, Berry has a master's in information systems and was a systems analyst and data architect for the Navy Department and Harvard University. He's a veteran of the U.S. Army Security Agency, which sponsored his three-year stint in Tokyo. A slave to a pride of entitled cats, Berry lives in Florida, where he teaches at a special school for wayward youth.
Triumphing over the Ghost Quadrant’s ancient horrors, the Kronarin battlecruiser Implacable jumps home to root out a conspiracy hidden within the heart of Kronar. Implacable’s Commodore Detrelna and his crew are arrested and Implacable impounded, as a foe far deadlier than mindslavers or biofabs sweeps down on a war-weary galactic humanity, its day of vengeance come round at last.
Earth’s been invaded, and nobody knows it but Ex-CIA agent John Harrison and his partner Zahava. Invaded by biofabs—the Scotar—a diabolically crafted life form dedicated to turning mankind into either supper or shuffling brainwipes. All seems lost as the pair go down under a wave of Scotar warriors--until the battleship Implacable appears. Fighting rages as mankind's survival hangs in the balance.
Defeated at the Battle for Terra Two, the cyborg AIs regroup to at last destroy mankind. Commodore Detrelna and the battle cruiser Implacable are sent to Quadrant Blue 9 for the only weapon that can stop them. Implacable’s crew aren’t optimistic—it’s been 3000 years since a ship came home from Blue 9. Then they meet what’s been waiting for them. (Tor Books 1987. Revised 2011.)
Earth is saved, the insectoid biofabs defeated by Terrans and a Kronarin starship. But renegade biofabs have fled to an alternate Earth, breeding back to strength, readying a counterstrike. Biofab War hero John Harrison is sent to destroy their nest before The Hatching. It won’t be easy—on this twisted Earth he’s a rebel, on the run from the 4th Reich. (Tor Books 1986. Revised 2010.)
