In the dying days of the war in Europe, Nazi scientists manage to put an atomic bomb into orbit. Only a miracle prevented them from bringing it back down on New York. Thirteen years later, with the bomb still in orbit, the Black Sun, a secret neo-Nazi organization with considerable financial and technological resources at their command, builds the Seawolf 4, a super-sub capable of traveling under the Arctic icecap, where it will transmit the order for the satellite bomb to descend on the USSR while at the same time launching a A-bomb armed cruise missile at an American city in the hopes of starting World War III. The only hope of stopping them are the new US nuclear subs, Nautilus and Skate. Can one of them find the Seawolf 4 in time? Tom Clancy and Clive Cussler fans will enjoy this tension-filled thriller that combines real world events in the 40’s and 50’s with a dash of science fiction. This novel is fiction but you’ll be astonished by how much of it is true when you read the Author’s comments at the end.

China will do anything to stop them, even if it means risking nuclear war. This 42,000 word action-packed, technothriller set in the year 2022, is fiction. But it could become tomorrow’s headlines. Contains language some might find offensive.  Space Force Major Curt Branson’s X-37C spaceplane has been damaged by a Chinese anti-satellite weapon. His oxygen is running out fast, and he has only two choices, crash land on the Arctic icecap with a slim chance of survival or make an emergency landing in Russia, against Presidential orders. What would you do? Historical Fact: The May 14th, 1954 edition of the San Francisco Examiner revealed to the public the existence of a mysterious satellite of unknown origin in a highly unusual polar orbit, later nicknamed the Black Knight. British astronomers estimated its weight at over 9 tons!

The collapse of the breakaway System States Alliance leaves the corrupt and rickety 800-year-old Federation victorious but nearly bankrupt. Among the military equipment it is forced to abandon on the planet Poictesme is the ultra-secret super-computer codenamed Merlin, that managed the strategic, tactical, logistical and administrative aspects of the interstellar war so well. The terrible secret it contains, that the Federation is now doomed to slowly slid into anarchy and chaos that will last for centuries, has to be kept secret to prevent an even faster and more violent collapse. But it also contains another secret. To avoid a new Dark Age, a new SSA must rise from the ashes of the old one. Can a few surviving SSA veterans find a way to make the Phoenix rise again?

Phoenix Rebirth continues the thrilling military SF series that started in Phoenix Dawn. With the results of the Battle For Earth still reverberating throughout human space, power players scramble to fill the new power vacuum. Earth has a new leader and a new vision, the autocratic Terran Imperium. The rebel vision of a new coalition of planets modeled after the democratic System States Alliance seems further away from realization than ever as Aren Bentrik’s former rebel comrades pursue their own dreams of glory. Bentrik still has his Merlin super-computer to guide him, but only a small powerbase with limited resources is available to exploit Merlin’s strategic moves. The Terran Imperium, on the other hand, has massive resources, and it has a Merlin-type super-computer too. All sides are building up their strength for the inevitable military showdown that will determine whether human civilization soars to new heights or comes crashing down into chaos and anarchy.

With the Senior Brass convinced that he's a tactical genius, he's given more and more responsibility and is terrified by the belief that Humanity's Fate will be determined by a battle with himself in overall command. This is Volume 1 of a military SF series about desperate space battles and the men, women and Artificial Intelligences, who fight and die in them.

Both dreams of glory are shattered by the reality of a civil war that is rapidly escalating in scope and violence.

Be aware that the first 50,000 words of this novel are also in The Merlin Gambit. This is now the re-edited and revised 2nd edition of my sequel to H. Beam Piper's Cosmic Computer. You do not have to read Cosmic Computer to understand and enjoy this sequel. For those of you who are new to Piper's brand of mid-20th century science fiction, you can read a copy of Cosmic Computer at the end of my story. The Tides of Chaos: In this sequel, those who wish to use Merlin for the benefit of all are confronted by power players, who seem to want to embrace the chaos that would lead to a quick and violent collapse of human civilization and who may have their own Merlin-type supercomputer to help them do it. As both sides make moves and counter-moves, the outcome, which will either be a relatively short and relatively mild decline or a plunge into chaos that lasts for thousands of years, will depend on what happens on a secret planet called Tanith. Cosmic Computer: Human Civilization, composed of hundreds of colonized planets, is slowly dying. The mythical supercomputer, that was supposedly used to win the war against the breakaway System States Alliance, might (if it really does exist and if it can be found) be able to mitigate the worst of the decline, but what terrible secret does it hold, that caused the Federation to abandon it after the War?
