Planetary Stories presents Erwin K Roberts’ “Destiny: His Path to the Stars”

His destiny is the Universe. He just doesn’t know it yet.
World War II, in the remote Pacific, a lone U.S. Army Air Corps pilot is shot down over a small group of islands. Not ordinary islands. Amazing and terrifying events soon begin. With more than just the war at stake, can he help save the day? And the world?

Our hero has been drafted. To fight the part of the war no one dares reveal. So off to China he goes to check out a friendly pilot who flies a near Mach 1 piston engine fighter. But there’s much more to the mystery than that.
“The Secret of the Aero-Plane” can be found here: http://www.planetarystories.com/aeroplane.htm
The enemy is throwing rocks into a U.S. airbase. Big rocks that make craters. Diverted to solve this new mystery, he unknowingly tries to protect the biggest secret of the war.

Coming this fall:
The war is over. Now he must recruit allies who also believe that we are not alone. For, in less than six years, he will set foot on the moon. To defend the Earth.

The Nocturne Travel Agency talks Superheroic Novels with Van Allen Plexico

Thomas Deja of the Nocturne Travel Agency (and creator of the Shadow Legion) interviews Van Allen Plexico (creator of the Sentinels and Hawk, among other superhero/cosmic characters and series), discussing superheroes in prose fiction, the role of e-books in superhero pulp publishing, how to write good action scenes, and much more:






Earth, once barren and decimated by war and the depletion of natural resources has been reborn.

Today, Scavengers prey on small mining towns and colonies. The United Planetary Alliance Marshal’s Service seems unable to stop these raids. They are outmanned and outgunned, but is the only law on many colonies.

Newly promoted Captain, Virgina Harmon takes command of her first starship, the Pegasus, the latest ship built to solve the Scavenger problem. Plagued by nervousness over her first command Captain Harmon is rocked by the news of her mentor’s murder. Just days before he was to report to her aboard the Pegasus as chief of engineering.

In Earth orbit, a science station becomes a target. An enemy has a plan to use the Space Lab facility as a means to claiming Earth.

In deep space, the United Planetary Alliance city-ship Ulysis welcomes aboard a high-ranking officer with a special mission for the crew. Those plotting against the Alliance are preparing to make their move and their first target is the Ulysis.

Meanwhile, in the deepest regions of space an enemy has returned. An enemy seeking vengeance.


Whoever controls Earth …Wins.

Planetary Stories: Eight Years, and Big Issue 25!

From Shelby Vick and our friends at Planetary Stories:

Planetary Stories is now into its EIGHTH year!

Issue 25 was only recently released. 



HAWK: HAND OF THE MACHINE is now out in both paperback and Kindle!

The galactic agent known as HAWK has awakened too soon in a galaxy shattered by apocalyptic warfare. His master, the Machine, is possibly insane, and the great Adversary of Man has returned. Now he must confront his former allies, turned renegades and pirates instead of soldiers. His new mission is simple, yet perhaps impossible: He must unite them–or all life in our galaxy will end!

HAWK: HAND OF THE MACHINE from White Rocket Books is vintage Van Allen Plexico— stripped-down, all-out Military SF/New Pulp action and adventure in the grand tradition, with bold heroes, deadly menaces, and the future of the very galaxy at stake!

In trade paperback:  http://www.amazon.com/Hawk-Machine-Van-Allen-Plexico/dp/0615641318

For Kindle:  http://www.amazon.com/Hawk-Machine-Shattered-Galaxy-ebook/dp/B00852PZ1O
