Luck Is Not A Factor: More Stories from the Four Horsemen Universe
Target of Opportunity by Terry Maggert
Nineteen outstanding authors. Nineteen extraordinary stories. One bestselling universe.
It’s the Twenty-Second Century. The galaxy has opened up to humanity as a hyperactive beehive of stargates and new technologies, and we suddenly find ourselves in a vast playground of different races, environments, and cultures. There’s just one catch: we are pretty much at the bottom of the food chain.
What do you do when the odds are stacked against you? Mercs plan, strategize, and sometimes even scheme, but there is one thing they all believe—luck is never a factor.
Unless it is.
Enter the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates Humans from the majority of the other races. Edited by bestselling authors and universe creators Chris Kennedy and Mark Wandrey, “Luck is Not a Factor” includes all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of bestselling authors—and some you may not have heard of…yet. The nineteen authors take on various aspects of the universe, giving you additional insight into a galaxy that isn’t at war…but definitely isn’t at peace. There’s only one thing for sure—anything’s possible for a fistful of credits!
If scifi variety is your cup of tea this is the anthology for you.
My favorite story and the funniest in the book is Target of Opportunity by Terry Maggert.
If you are a fan of Military SciFi, you need to be reading these books.
The Good, the Bad, and the Merc: Even More Stories from the Four Horsemen Universe
The Last Dragon by Terry Maggert
Even more authors and stories. Still the same bestselling universe.
It’s the Twenty-Second Century. Humanity has taken its first steps into the galaxy, and we’ve found ourselves in a vast playground of alien races, environments, and cultures. As the newest players on the universal stage, though, our position is readily apparent—we’re at the bottom of the food chain.
Welcome back to the Four Horsemen universe, where only a willingness to fight and die for money separates Humans from the majority of the other races. While some of the stories inside deal with mercenaries, others introduce readers to the other guilds, organizations, and races that make up the landscape of the Four Horsemen universe, as well as providing additional insight into the characters of the mainline novels. What’s it like to be a medic on the beach or to learn how to kill from a mother not your own? Come find out!
Edited by bestselling authors and universe creators Mark Wandrey and Chris Kennedy, “The Good, the Bad, and the Merc” includes sixteen all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe by a variety of bestselling authors—and some you may not have heard of…yet. In a galaxy this big, you’ll find that some of the races are good and others are bad, but only the best are mercs!
Chris and Mark have done another great job of choosing select authors, including themselves, for us to enjoy.
Four strong stars for another good collection of short stories.
Richly entertaining and difficult to put down, don’t miss this one!
I also really like Terry Maggert’s story. I have read many of his fantasy novels. I hope he writes more military science fiction in the future.
The Jurassic Chronicles
Noble Savage by Terry Maggert
Journey back to the most incredible adventure of all, back through the gates of the Jurassic era, back to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth.
In this title in the acclaimed ‘Future Chronicles’ series of speculative fiction anthologies created by award-winning author Samuel Peralta, thirteen authors assemble an array of astonishing tales around creatures extinct for eons, around prehistoric creatures suddenly, and awesomely, made real.
‘The Jurassic Chronicles’ features stories by Victor Milán, author of ‘Dinosaur Lords’ – “a cross between ‘Jurassic Park’ and ‘Game of Thrones’,” according to George R. R. Martin; John W. Campbell Award winning author Seanan McGuire; New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laxmi Hariharan; plus ten more of today’s top authors in speculative and science fiction.
The subtlety was well played by Maggert, and the story so well written, it stayed with me long after I finished it.
Want to find your next favorite author? Pick up a Future Chronicles title. I just found a few of mine in this one.
