High Adventure in the New World!

Oil. The Americas have it. The United States of Europe needs it. Without oil, all hope of the time traveling town of Grantville, West Virginia to bring science and industry into the heart of a European continent still crawling out of the Dark Ages is lost. Enter Lieutenant Commander Eddie Cantrell, daring up-time commander of this venture into western oceans. The Spanish are after him, and so are other enemies with even fewer scruples—every one of them determined to hang the commander from a yardarm.

Surviving a Mars Mission Worst Case Scenario!

In the year 2035 space exploration is a reality, and the first manned mission to Mars is away. Sending humans into space is risky—but are the risks worth it? The astronauts and mission specialists of the Arrow—a crew set to be the first humans on Mars—think so. But powerful political forces on Earth disagree. When a fluke collision hobbles the ship, it's not only the lives of the crew that hang in the balance, but the future of manned space exploration itself!
