Wolf Slayer

The first book in the Master Defiance series, Wolf Slayer combines political thriller and dystopian science-fiction in an action-packed adventure, culminating in a desperate flight across North America.

When Matt Adams, a much-decorated army veteran, is offered the job of infiltrating and spying on a revolutionary party, he jumps at the offer. Scarred and blinded in one eye, his employment options would be poor, even if the economy wasn't in meltdown.

Meanwhile, the President of the US, Ernie Wolf, is cementing his position of absolute power with the assistance of the thuggish bullies known as the Loyal Order of Patriots. President Wolf is flourishing, despite his cruel, vindictive nature. He disbands Congress and bans all media outlets, declaring himself president for life and effectively creating a totalitarian state. Wolf then turns his attention to warmongering, and to the destruction of the Second Chance spaceship, currently in orbit around the moon.

When Matt discovers the President's intentions, he has a stark choice. He can do nothing and watch as the President destroys all hope for current and future humanity, or he can become a Wolf Slayer and help to save the Second Chance and avert war...

'Author Interview'

Blair Wylie

Blair Wylie is a retired Canadian oil and gas engineer and manager. He worked thirty-five years in a number of interesting places, including the Arctic, Western Siberia, the North Sea, Newfoundland, and Trinidad and Tobago. In his second career as a writer, he prefers to stay in the plausible world with respect to science, and character studies. His stories place everyday people in awkward if not outright terrifying situations, then have them discover hidden strengths while they rescue themselves. He hopes readers will come away feeling better about themselves, and about the future in general.

Covert Alliance

When a megalithic pyramid is discovered on New Earth, it excites a great deal of attention from scientists and politicians alike. But when it becomes apparent that the pyramid may be linked to the Masters - an ancient and highly aggressive enemy - the military also start to take a close, and possibly unwelcome, interest.

Balancing the competing interests of scientists, politicians, the military and financiers falls on the shoulders of Prime Minister Phillip Wong. When evidence emerges that an unknown alien race has designed the pyramid to direct New Earth's attention to a specific, unexplored moon in the Sol-system, Wong draws on his considerable political strengths to set up a top-secret deep-space exploration.

When a direct message from the alien race forecasts that the Masters are intent on the total destruction of New Earth, and that only their own highly-sophisticated technology can save the human population, Wong and his advisers must decide whether they can be trusted.

Professor Francis Maldonado, Lieutenant Colonel Nils Knudsen and Major Asher Weismann will take on the mission to meet with the aliens and determine the course of action. But the moon-mission is just the first step in a series of events that will erupt into a fierce battle for survival between the Warrior Masters and the human race...

Tube Survivors

When a number of humans leave Tube World, their planet-like home, and move to a new and unknown planet they call New Earth, their leaders look forward to creating an idyllic new constitution that will address and rectify all the problems humans faced in their previous world.

But the Tribunal leaders, Abubakar, Ishikawa and Bahazhoni, after drawing up a working plan for their new constitution, realise that they will have to make sure that security in the form of food, and safety and assurance for all, must be the primary driver that underpins their constitution. Without safety and security, no noble ideals can or will be upheld.

So, they agree when seven people, including Captain Rasmussen, the chief engineer, Mercado the security officer, Clarke, and Fisher the scientist (plus their life partners) decide to build a boat and circumnavigate their new continent to find out what other life forms may live there, as well as conduct research into possible new and permanent food sources or find viable places for agriculture.

But no one can foresee what will transpire when Harvey, an unrepentant criminal, is turned loose to make his own way in the wilderness, banished from New Earth society.

What happens when he meets a tribe of humanoids in a village in the forest?

And how will this affect the team of scientists and researchers? What is it that they will stumble upon, a secret lost in the ancient history of this new land, that might turn out to be so deadly yet also prove so irresistible that they must investigate it?

The Perils of Isolation

The Perils of Isolation contains three separate stories about how people survive the unusual situations in which they find themselves. Connecting the three stories is the author's obvious love of fishing, always in remote, hard to get to areas.

'Mic Muk Mac' is set in the wilds of Ontario, Canada, when a group of school friends go on an annual fishing holiday.

'The Naïve Neftyanik' is a story of Canadian oilman, Blake McTavish, whose contract is to set up his company's operations in western Siberia. It's a very different working environment but he goes fishing with some of his new-found, Russian friends.

Finally, find out what happens to a group of fishing friends on their trip to a remote area of Labrador, Canada, in 'The Tesla Terrorist' and how they survive the biggest electrical storm ever known.

Tube Dwellers

Smitty and Tara live on Tube World - it is all they have ever known. They imagine that getting married and having babies will be their greatest adventure. But they couldn't be more wrong...

Smitty has inherited more than a parabike from his Uncle Elmo. He has inherited a code which will open a whole new future for them and for all the ten thousand Tube Dwellers who share their world.

By exploring the hidden spaces accessed by the code, Smitty and Tara are bravely flying in the face of laws enforced by the Tube World Council - which encourages its people to live, work, and think in a strictly regulated fashion. But the clock is ticking and Tube World can't sustain life forever.

Their bravery means that Tube Dwellers have a whole new future to look forward to - a second chance on New Earth. But preparing for a flight to a new planet, and actually building a life there, will be fraught with untold dangers and challenges for Smitty, Tara and their friends - not least from those who already populate the new world.

MASTER DEFIANCE

The aliens are landing!

On a post-apocalyptic earth, the human species has reverted to its ancient native ways, surviving and thriving by hunting and fishing. It will be so easy for the strange invaders to take control.

But... there is one thing left from the old technological age of years before: a machine the earth hominids call "Mother", which can teach them, through revisiting history, how to defend themselves.

Someone, many years ago, once said, "What have the Romans done for us?"

Well... now, their ideas might just save the planet!
