Terminal Alliance: Janitors of the Post-Apocalypse

Terminal Alliance, the first book of the Janitors of the Post-Apocalypse series, is a comedic military series fitting for our times. A disease inhibiting brain function devasted the human population.

Astronauts Will be Able to Extract Fuel, Air, and Water From Martian Brine

A little over a decade from now, NASA plans to send astronauts to Mars for the first time.

Star Wars Queen’s Peril

EK Johnston's second book about Padme, Queens Peril, is set before and concurrent with The Phantom Menace. I'll be honest; when I first read the book's announcement, I thought it would be similar to the old journal series where the story is retold from the perspective of a single character. I was wrong. This book is so much more than that. It's a story of empowerment, not just for Padme but for her handmaidens as…
