For over five hundred years, humanity has sprawled across the galaxy, forming fractious empires and deadly regions of lawless space. In the midst of brewing tensions, disgraced pilot Rex Vahl is tapped for a suicide mission: infiltrate an interplanetary power known only as the “Hegemony” and discover what hides behind their veil of secrecy.

What does Rex have on his side? His co-pilot is a former prostitute with tiger-striped skin. His gunner is a traitorous ex-nobleman wanted by his countrymen. His engineer is a laid-back cyborg exiled for asking one too many questions about God. Add in a woman genetically engineered to have no free will, and you get his motley crew. Armed with only a souped-up freighter, Rex blasts off to pursue rumors of a mysterious Hegemony ambassador on the planet of Cordelia. To get there, he and his crew must cross the Chaos Quarter, a tumultuous territory defined by tyrants, pirates, and religious extremists. Even if they survive the journey, the ambassador could prove deadlier than any enemy they face along the way.

But when Rex discovers that the Empire of Europa—the Commonwealth’s greatest foe—has agents skulking in the shadows, he realizes his mission is no longer a secret. And if he secures his prize now, the intergalactic fallout could unleash the most deadly war the galaxy has ever seen.

Exactly how far must genetic engineering go before a people stop being human, and start being...something else. And exactly how far will they go to protect the secret of what they have become? Find out for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER.

What do you do when you find yourself alongside a woman with absolutely no free will of her own? And what do you if you can give that woman free will, but only by exposing yourself to two powerful and murderous enemies? Disgraced Captain Rex Vahl comes face-to-face with this question in CHAOS QUARTER...

Lucius Baliol lost everything when he walked away from the aristocratic Europan Empire. Now he finds himself in the employ of the empire's greatest enemy, serving under a man who would've shot him on sight just months before. But in the Chaos Quarter even longtime enemies sometimes find themselves throw together, and Baliol's skills at war may be just what Lieutenant Rex Vahl needs to survive his impossible mission to the CHAOS QUARTER...

Chakrika Alvadile was nothing more than a mid-level prostitute with tiger-striped skin, until she found herself stuck about a spaceship surrounded by strangers. Now she's learning to fly a ship, taking care of a cute little boy, and trying to fend off the evils of the galaxy with her new crew-mates. You wouldn't expect a victimized young woman with little education to be up demands of life in the void, but Chakrika may just find the CHAOS QUARTER to be the best thing that ever happened to her...

For over ninety years Second was nothing more than a biological machine, a human being turned into the perfect slave. Deprived of free will, she has spent long decades obeying the will of her master, and being transferred from one body to the next. But when freedom comes, what exactly will she be? Is there somebody under the layers of control and modification, or is she too far gone to ever truly be human?

Jake Gaderi was once a cyborg of Cyberdan, until he said something unpolitic and got exiled to the wilderness of the CHAOS QUARTER. Trapped in the void with a broken ship, he sees Rex and his crew as his best chance of escape. But with a warship on their tale it's an escape that cold prove to be short-lived...

Blair and Flynn had a simple job: maintain the secrecy of the Perfected Hegemony less the primitives of explored space misunderstand it, and the great works it was doing to advance the human genome. So when the crew of Long Haul gets their hands on the corpse of a Hegemon master, the chase is on to stop them from revealing his secrets to the wider universe. Blair and Flynn will stop at nothing to achieve their goal, but the Chaos Quarter is a vast place, and their enemy is stubbornly good at staying alive. See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER, available from Amazon.

The Chaos Quarter isn't exactly a nice place to be. Composed of thousands of failed states, petty kingdoms, pirate bands, religious fanatics, and bloodthirsty warlords, it's difficult to make it a week, much less the months Rex Vahl will need to cross it. And should he reach the other side what awaits him? A reclusive superpower that had never let anybody escape their space alive. Armed with a souped-up freighter and a crew of cast-offs, the odds are looking long indeed...See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER, available from Amazon.

What lies beyond the Chaos Quarter, nobody rightly knows. There are rumors though. Rumors of freaks who hunt men and women for fun. Rumors of genetic engineering run wild, blurring the lines between what's human and what's not. Rumors of a third superpower, waiting to unleash itself on an unprepared universe...But all anybody knows for certain is that nobody who ventures into that space comes back alive, ever. This presents a problem to disgraced pilot Rex Vahl, as his superiors very much want to know what awaits them beyond the CHAOS QUARTER...
