Acid Sky by Mark Anson
Venus – second planet from the Sun. In the crushing depths of its atmosphere lies a hellish, dimly-lit world of baked rock and furnace-like temperatures, forever hidden beneath thick clouds of sulphuric acid.
But high above the clouds, the sky is blue and clear, and a fleet of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers circle endlessly on the high-altitude winds, providing a welcome staging post for crews on long space voyages.
For Clare Foster, a lieutenant in the US Astronautics Corps on her first tour of duty on board the USSV Langley, flying on Venus brings new challenges to be mastered. But soon Clare finds herself enmeshed in the darker side of life on board the carrier, and a sequence of events in which the terrifying fury of the planet will be unleashed…

“First Fleet #1: Bones” by Stephen Case
In a war many light years away, among the ruins of an ancient alien civilization, our fallen soldiers return from the front lines in pieces. Medical pods regenerate the remains of these soldiers so their mind and consciousness can be downloaded into their freshly regrown body.
But something at the front lines… something inside the ruins… has been killing our soldiers faster than we could grow them. When a pod arrives with more than just the pieces of a fallen soldier, what begins to regenerate inside is something unimaginably powerful.
If it awakens, we will have lost a war we didn’t even know we started.

But Allen will also discover that Rick Sullivan is not the man he appears to be, and the war he’s fighting, a war to rid his home planet of its oppressive government, is not his only battle.
As Allen pursues Sullivan across the known galaxy, he begins to question his own beliefs and loyalties. Will Allen be able to stop Rick Sullivan before he kills again? Does he really want to? As their lives become increasingly intertwined, both men realize they must face truths about themselves that neither of them are prepared for.

The Black Ships by A.G. Claymore
Our planet was just one small island in the midst of a vast, empty sea. For millennia, its inhabitants thought they were alone – until they took their first tentative steps out of the cradle. As the nations of Earth struggle to establish a fragile colony on the surface of Mars, they suddenly lose all contact with their settlers.
In the days that follow, it becomes abundantly clear that humans are not the only ones intent on exploiting the resources of the solar archipelago. In a desperate bid for freedom, Humanity must undergo social and economic changes on a scale previously unheard of.
In the midst of growing turmoil, the struggle to build an effective defense leads the species to a turning point. The smallest of chances may determine the difference between freedom or eternal subjugation.

Free-Wrench by Joseph Lallo
The islands of Caldera are a shining jewel in a rather bleak world. A terrible calamity in the past had blanketed much of the world with a toxic “fug.” Those who survived were forced to take to the mountains and the skies in wondrous airships. Life has since been a struggle, with only the most ruthless and crafty able to survive. To spare themselves the same fate, the Calderans erected a battery of guns to fend off the airships of the mainland. They isolated themselves from the madness of the world, choosing instead to focus on the pursuits of art and creativity. Few believe the technologically advanced but socially barbarous outsiders have anything to offer. Amanita Graus, though, is hoping that they do.
