|In this issue: a trillionaire makes first contact, a Peterbilt time travels, and a girl and her AI tank face huge challenges. Plus, a new Monalisa Foster short story!
FIRST CONTACT ON THE LAWLESS FRONTIER
Igbal Renz is one of the Four Horsemen—trillionaires who have successfully privatized the space industry in Earth’s solar system. Now, Renz has constructed a starship capable of making the twenty-year journey to Alpha Centauri. So why is he stopping at barely one-tenth that distance, with a cargo of a hundred frozen scientists and diplomats?
Rumors abound that Renz Ventures, Inc., has made contact with . . . something. And yet, as deadly stealth ships prowl the space lanes and as the corporate space race threatens to devolve into outright warfare, the Four Horsemen of space industry are discovering firsthand that even in a limitless and lawless frontier, no one can ever be truly self-sufficient.
“Full bore show-your-work SF and a tense lunar mystery! A thrilling read.”

TRUCKIN’ THROUGH TIME
Michael and Melanie Anderle are hauling a tanker full of oil with their Peterbilt eighteen-wheeler when they’re struck by a temporal irregularity that sends them, the truck, and their daughter back in time a thousand years. The bubble that transports them also grabs a chemist and her two young children, along with half a convenience store in the middle of the United States.
They just want to make a decent life for themselves in this new world of the past, with their Peterbilt and its oil providing a means of transportation, a generator, and shelter. But not all the locals are willing to live and let live, and when the area shamans decide that this community of temporally displaced persons is a threat to their power, the Anderles find out what it’s like to take a Peterbilt to war.
A GIRL AND HER TANK
Talinn Reaze and Bee serve as “Breezy,” part of the United Colonial Force’s elite Artificial Intelligence Troops. Trained for full integration since before Talinn’s birth, they exceeded expectations and became one of the premier heavy tanks, leading assaults on several fronts of the long war against the Interstellar Defense Corps.
When they’re thrown to a backwater base without cause, boredom becomes their main enemy—until the world falls out from under their treads and they begin to question everything they’ve ever known.
"Marisa Wolf's talent as a storyteller takes center stage as she deftly weaves an enthralling tale of intrigue and discovery. . . . Beyond Enemies is a stirring, evocative novel of the bond between those who soldier together, be they real or artificial, biological or synthetic."

SEEK AND FIND
Adam Elliott was once a cop. Now, he finds missing kids—runaway teenagers, that sort of thing. What he doesn't do is track down rogue Sentient Artificial Intelligences. Because SAIs, as they are known in the 24th century, do not go rogue. Only, now it seems . . . one has.
