What would you do if you found an ancient spaceship?
Michael Freeman is a disabled veteran who had just been fired from his mind-numbing cubicle job, which allowed his opportunistic girlfriend to dump him. Now, he only wants to spend some time in his grandfather's mountain cabin to unwind away from the drudgery of daily life with a cold beer in his hands.
Standing in his way is an ancient spaceship with an emotional AI, nanites that have invaded his body, an international crime syndicate, a suicidal FBI agent on a vigilante mission, terrorists... and this is just the beginning.
What can one man do when faced with insurmountable odds? Call it quits? Or… call some of his old army buddies and blow those obstacles to smithereens.
Can he become more than he had ever dreamed, reaching further than any man before? Staying under the radar of the powers that be while righting a few wrongs of the modern world.
He is sure of three things:
1. He really doesn’t want to follow the rules anymore... aside from his own.
2. Space is the ultimate frontier, and he had been given a turnkey technology to reach it—if they let him.
3. Those that want to hurt him and the people he cares about will rue the day they were born.
You do not always get what you wish for… sometimes, you get one hell of a lot more.

He woke up in the bowels of his crashed ship. His arms were gone, as were most of his memories. Stumbling out of the cockpit, the skull-faced man could scarcely anticipate just how mythical a living human was in these parts - let alone one with a custom body such as his.
The Triumvirate has known peace for 10,000 years. Their technology dwarfs that of Man, and for almost a century now Humanity has done everything they have asked of us, in order to learn even a fraction of their secrets. With their help, we have abolished poverty, and hunger. War is now a thing of the past. We have made incredible strides in a very short time period...and yet the Triumvirate races keep us at arm's length. They see us as half-evolved apes, too violent even now to keep company with our betters.
They call us...Barbarians.
But sometimes, a Barbarian is exactly what you need.

A thousand spells in your pocket, for a price.
So the email told Mathias, a creative teenager dreaming of freedom on a conquered Earth where magic is a resource to fight over, and a dragon despot rules the stars. The mysterious Magik website offers him the chance to purchase magical powers online, so long as he fulfills the requests of hidden benefactors. He accepts.
Now embroiled in a power game he barely understands, Mathias decides to do the only sensible thing: build a crack team of magicians, monsters, and would-be knights to take down their oppressive dictatorship. An easy Quest, right?
The cover was done by the amazing ChasingArtwork.
Bayler Shrike's old life ended badly. It ended with him in a coma, blind to the world ending around him.
By the time he wakes up, Earth has fallen into the Sea of the Underworld, the Abyss, an endless realm of black water that will slowly swallow the shards of the world. Countless other races, other worlds, have suffered the same fate, and they all want to conquer the remains of the earth for themselves.
Overseen by the Kthons, the gods of death, a series of deathmatches will determine the new rulers of Earth.
Plenty of people have stopped and asked what it'd be like to simply have everything, and Sylvain Henry Camille Johansson was no different. He was a man who had a lot of things going on, with a name that'd make a supervillain blush and a family who'd make even the useless of their rank into someone important. It was a shame, then, that he was slapped with a dreadfully unfortunate condition that kept him from living up to any of those already low expectations.
Stuck living a life where magic is everywhere while he's left working with nothing more than a moderate intellect, a little bit of whatever influence he could get from his family, and a lifetime's practice at making himself the ideal subordinate for his bosses' boss, Vane was still beating the odds and slowly working his way up in the world. When the cunning yes-man finally got a chance to really make a name for himself, he leapt at the offer, taking his first real step onto a road he knew he was always meant to walk. His goal? Nothing less than finding out why he and too many other unfortunate souls are barred from the wonderful world of the higher energies, and with any luck, fixing it.
Of course, life has a knack for interfering in even the humblest of plans, and Vane's lofty ideals were anything but humble; he was practically a walking bullseye for disaster. The funny thing about catastrophe, though, is that nobody can ever say what form it's going to take. That’s why, when it all went wrong for Vane, he'd gotten everything he'd ever wanted foisted onto him, and Everything else, too. Watch as a man so used to saying 'yes' to everyone above him finds himself stuck with the power to make reality itself say it back.

Some time ago, a planes-traveling archmage made up a video game to train some people on the planet Earth for the catastrophe he knew was coming.
That game was the Power of Ten.
The gods seized this opportunity to take the templates of some of those characters, and even their souls, for use in other worlds, and other realms.
Sama Rantha is one of those characters, and is going to find out that being a Hagchild and having to survive after your Hag Curse fails to murder you at birth is much, much less fun than setting it as your Race at level One on a gamescreen.
Join Sama Rantha on her Road to Ten, and letting her Hagmother know exactly what she thinks of her...
Warning: This book starts with a HARD OPEN! It was written as an extension of other stories that have not made it onto the Internet yet for National Novel Writing Month in Nov/2018.
Book One/Sama Rantha: A traditionalist LitRPG in the fantasy world vein. The beginning chapters will be heavy with gaming terms and the supporting math as Sama exploits the rules as much as possible, minmaxing her heart out to get one up on the world trying to kill her.
The math and rules lawyering tapers off, but are never eliminated, as Sama is going to do everything she can to exploit the rules of reality here and not die, while making sure those responsible for this get exactly what is coming to them...
Book Two, The Far Future (starting Ch. 286): The Warp, the final frontier; in the grim darkness of a galaxy far far away, there came a hagchild...QX! Sci-fi/Fantasy/psionics mashup, grimbright clashing with grimdark!
Sama is sent into a setting she'd rather not be in, but the heart of a powergamer never says no, even in the crapsack galaxy of the Tellurian Empire.
BOOK TWO IS COMPLETE WITH 357 CHAPTERS AS OF 9/2020.
Book Three (updating daily): The Human Race (next Book!) - Urban Fantasy world. Three Power of Ten gamers come together in a world under the Shroud of the Cancer of Death. Whatever might happen when they do, and what might they find there?
Setting Synopsis and Prelude of Book Three are posted on their own Novel Page:

Notice : I had been hospitalized for the last 3 weeks because of illness. Thankfully it was not Covid-19 but my left eye developed Uveitis and I had a high fever running for a while. Furthermore, the medication included a high amount of steroid pills and drops which caused severe immuno deficiency, so my health isn't the best atm. The series will go on Hiatus until further notice. DO NOT donate on patreon. If you accidentally do, please apply for a refund.
Arthur Tullett always led an average life. All he ever wanted was to get a stable job, marry a caring wife, be a fun father, and live without regrets.

Now he has to venture across the universe solving mysteries left unexplained for eons. Meet bizarre civilizations full of alien wonders, and save them from cosmic terrors out there to gobble them up.
Join him on this fantastic journey full of laughter and passion through the stars.

ALPHA-555-12-4412 (Designation: Star Conquer).
One of the 5 most powerful and advanced AI-driven Interstellar Weapon Platforms ever built, was programmed with a very simple mission.
Travel the stars.
Seek out new and hospitable Alien Worlds.
Establish a Forward based for their Master's eventual colonization.
And, If necessary, crush any and all native resistance it might find.
It was a Mission that Alpha took seriously and dedicated its entire being to.
However, when Alpha flies a liiiiitle to close to a Blackhole and gets sucked in, it is thrown into a situation that no amount of programming could prepare it for.
Now stranded on an alien, yet familiar world, full of dangerous beasts and strange phenomenon its database has no record or explanation for, Alpha must find a way to not only survive, but thrive.
And eventually to do what he was built to do.
Some things to expect from this Story
1): MC is an AI programmed with a very specific goal. Thus don't expect him to think or act like a human might. That being said, he/it is not bloodthirsty and evil either. He is specifically programed to work with, and indoctrinate Native species when possible. He is not a demon lord come to end the world as they know it, but a Conqueror come to subjugate.
2): MC won't be getting some kind of Humanoid form or suddenly start trying to think like a Human. Although an AI, he is perfectly Sapient, and fully understands both what he is and what is mission is. He is capable of adapting and changing his thought process, but at the end of the day, the Mission is what matters to him. He doesn't see the need or even WANTS to be Human. The only exception to this might be Humanoid body doubles or puppets used in places his main body isn't able to go.
3): This story is a mix of both Sci-Fi and Cultivation novels. MC with NOT be able to Cultivate themselves (for obvious reasons), but using his technology and knowledge, will be able to adapt and repurpose the strange and exotic resources you might find in a Cultivation World to increase his power and keep up with the powerhouses of this Universe.
4): The Intention of this story is to alternate between it and Parasite King, so I don't get burned out writing either one. As such, updates, while not slow, won't be to quick. Bare with me for awhile till the wheels get rolling.
The human brain is the most valuable resource on Earth. But only if you use it. You can’t just pile them in your basement. Doesn’t work.
Candy is the Guardian of Humanity. It's not going well, but she's cautiously optimistic.
A chatbot has destroyed the economy by being better at white collar jobs than hung over dudes. Candy has a plan to fix that.
The government wants to send half the population to debt prison. Candy has a plan to fix that.
Several super weapons have been stolen, and are turning up in the hands of desperate people. Candy has no plan for that. She's working on it.
Very Yummy Poison is a near future, science fiction, romantic comedy, political psychodrama. It's fun. Try it.
To be a synth is the greatest privilege an individual could be born into. What greater purpose or grander sense of fulfillment could one hope for than to be a tool of King Decon, the ruler of the Galaxy?
09T07 doesn’t know what more they want, but they know they’re missing something. Friendship? Intimacy? This seems to be the answer when they find others who are also not as King Decon intended them to be. However, how long can such things last among tools to be used and discarded? And how far are they willing to go to protect their loved ones in the face of duty?

An AI wakes up in its bunker complex to a scene of mass destruction and death by an alien assailant, the last creation of Humanity, built to survive and rebuild after a total extinction event now must expand into space in order to defend itself from this new enemy.
''He's broken, are you sure this is a good idea?''
''It's gonna be alright, it'll become a different timeline. I will supply the power for it myself, won't cost you anything and you can watch it play out with me.''
''If you're sure dear, the last time we did this it didn't turn out so good for the world though.''
''It's gonna be fine! ...Probably.''
A man yanked out of our world is put into another one on the whims of beings out of his comprehension or knowledge.
Journey with him as he tries for the things that were ever out of his reach in his last life, enjoyment, fulfillment, happiness... and maybe even love.
This is my first time writing anything. I'll be taking it as a learning experience, though obviously, I'd hope that people enjoy it.
When you find something to criticize, and you will. I at least hope you'll word it in a constructive way so I could remedy and/or learn from it.

Life can be terrifying, wonderful or horrible things can happen at the drop of a hat. On rare occasions, horrible things can lead directly to wonderful things. Evan Ebonhart struggled, he fought and clawed tooth and nail, and just like his mother taught him he did it all with a smile. Never letting anyone see how things affected him. This is his story, a story about some of the terrible things that happened to him, that led to the greatest and most terrifying discovery of his life. With his lifelong friends beside him, they set themselves on a brave course that might very well shatter the very foundations of their society so that they may build it anew, stronger and more wholesome.
‘A ship is a female after all!’ The man, now known as Abyssal thought to herself.
This is the story of a man who woke up one day and realised that he became a ship. A broken ship that's stranded in space with a skeleton as a captain, but nevertheless a ship!
Now, S.A.S Abyssal (Self Aware Ship Abyssal) roamed space freely, wanting to find her purpose in this endless void. Along the way, she upgraded herself, found other Living Cores such as herself, got herself a maid, got into a dogfight, went space mining, upgraded herself further, steered through a minefield, encountered a supernova and even found genetically engineered catgirls!
Also, it turned out that there was some sort of crazed bounty hunter out for her blood! But wait there was more! She also somehow got herself involved in an intergalactic space war!
‘Wait wait wait! What the hell is this?! What am I supposed to do now!?’
Disclaimer: This is a casual release so expect the quality to be slightly less and chapter-length to be shorter than my other series(on Scribblehub).
I will try to release 2 chapters a week for this story(Wed and Sun), but no promises as I am concentrating fully on my other stories.
Also, I do not have a degree in literature nor a PHD in space-related stuff, so do forgive me if I make a few mistakes here and there!
Part One: The Fall of Humanity
It was the beginning of a new age, after a century of constant war, mankind was finally at peace. Her colonies united under Earth’s military dominion, piracy was virtually extinct and the economy was thriving. Then mankind made its first encounter with an alien race, the Cathamari. First contact was a disaster, and three months later humanity was at war with an alien race. Two years have passed since then, and humanity is losing the war. Her colonies destroyed and most of her fleets gone, her last bastion is Earth itself. But hope is not lost as humanity is on the verge of completing her first ftl capable starships.
With these new ships will Humanity conquer the stars and beat back her enemies or is she doomed to fail and be a mere footnote in galactic history?
Part Two Rebirth Synopsis:
Over seventy years have passed since the Battle for Earth. The years since than have hardened the survivors into a resourceful people. Now with only a single small fleet at their disposal, they search the far reaches of space for a new homeland from which to rebuild their civilization and prepare for their eventual return to Earth. However will their resourcefulness be enough when they come face to face with their greatest foe, a menace so alien, that no one but themselves understand their motives? Or will they be destroyed, by an enemy far more powerful than themselves?
Space... An endless expanse of darkness populated by countless specks of light.
Around many of those specks of light planets orbit, just cosmic motes of dust, but on some motes, there is life. And life, not content to stay on those motes of dust, found a way to challenge the endless expanse, to leap through the void to find other specks of light.
This is the story of Leonora Horn, aspiring Starfighter Pilot of the Solari Federation and her travels through the Black Sky.
