Seize The High Ground

Hey everyone. My new short story, Seize The High Ground, is now available for less than a cup of coffee! A mere 99 cents. Here’s a brief description.

Commander Uriel Boyd has a problem. He needs to rescue the ship’s captain who’s huddling in a lifeboat with air running out. Boyd’s trio of lightly armed auxiliaries must find a way past an enemy battleship and heavy cruisers to save him.

Boyd is armed only with an idea, and he’s been looking for a chance to try it out.

If you saw my post about the future of carriers, this story is very closely related. I imagine a future where carriers are no longer the capital ships we know today. But, in this very special circumstance, the protagonist sees a way to cobble together an ersatz carrier strike for an anti-ship mission.

Seize The High Ground

From the story:

“We got one destroyer, one assault shuttle tender, and my armaments collier. Only your ship is armed for combat, Galang, and against that force…” He pointed into the tank again. “Anything you can do is just pissin’ in the wind.”

Did I mention it’s only 99 cents? You can’t get a decent cup of coffee for that.
Get it right here:

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
