It's The Hunt for Red October in space with this brand new military science fiction novel from Patrick S. Tomlinson, In the Black In a demilitarized zone on the border of human space, long-range spy satellites are mysteriously going quiet, and no one knows why. Captain Susan Kamala and her crew are dispatched to figure out what's going on and solve the problem. That problem, however, is a mysterious bleeding edge alien ship that no human vessel could hope to match in open conflict. But, it's not spoiling for a fight. Now the captain and her crew must figure out how to navigate a complicated game of diplomacy, balancing the needs of their corporate overlords and the honest desire for a lasting peace between the two races, all without letting a long-standing cold war turn hot.Show more
A light-hearted science fiction novel about first contact, exploration, and desperately trying not to screw up from an up-and-coming sci-fi author. On humanity's first extra-solar mission, the exploration vessel Magellan, or as she prefers "Maggie," discovers an alien artifact. Deciding that finding advanced alien life is too important to ignore, Captain Allison Ridgeway chooses to return to Earth while ordering her crew to reverse engineer technology far beyond anything back home. Meanwhile, at mission control, the governments struggle to maintain the existence of aliens a secret while also combating bureaucracy, the military industrial complex, and everyone else who wants a piece of the science that could skyrocket humanity into a new technological golden age. Little does everyone involved know that the bumbling of a few highly evolved apes in space hasn't gone unnoticed and the people of Earth have put themselves on a collision course with a far wider, and potentially hostile, galaxy.Show more
