Free science fiction books for kindleEta Carinae

In this humorous apocalyptic comedy, Australian bureaucrat, James Cook, is sent to Ayer’s Rock in the Outback to sort out what seems to be a labor dispute. There, he discovers that The National Park and the local airport have been shut down by the aboriginal community. Aided by the enticing anthropologist, Pam, and the local elder, Billy, James goes on walkabout to Kata Djuta, hoping to gain insight into the celestial event the elders and shamans say is about to take place.

Eta Carinae, has suddenly begun to brighten in the sky and most astronomers think it’s a supernova. The elders think it’s something even more, and James has the not-so-unwelcome suspicion that everything he’s ever known is about to change forever.

Brian d’Eon’s comedy chops are on full display in this hilarious novella that mixes a first contact comedy with cultural clash, along with adventure, romance, and of course, the end of the world.

Escorting Leigh Enderi—a greenhorn Enforcer with a reputation as shady as his own—he soon realizes the ghosts of his past have come to haunt more than his nightmares.

Destiny Lost

An ancient general, and a woman running from her destiny...

Sera leads a simple life.

Inside the container she not only finds a woman, but a secret thought lost millennia ago. The woman is Tanis Richards, and she knows the location of the Intrepid, a missing colony ship from humanity's golden age.

The Ship fled a dying Earth to save the human race.

Fifteen-year-old Zax has always had trouble fitting in with the other cadets, but he's finally on the cusp of attaining his dream and gaining entrance to the Pilot Academy.

Freedom's Fire Box Set

It was never a question of if the aliens would come, it was only ever when.

The first interstellar war, a generation ago, left humanity enslaved. Now humans fight in the armies of their masters to save themselves from annihilation.

At least, that's what the propaganda insists is true. What the layers of lies keep hidden, is how badly the new war is going for the people of earth.

Now it's Dylan Kane's turn to blast into the heavens and join the battle, but what his masters don't know, is that by putting a weapon in his hands, they're giving him the key to unlocking his hopes of freedom.

When the railgun slugs are tearing through his ship, and the vacuum is sucking the life out of his wounded friends, will Dylan's years of repressed rage turn into enough bravery to make his dream come true?
