Pyro Canyon

A Cosmic Frontiers Novella

Two fallen heroes from the past are the only hope for our future.

It's a galaxy-wide red alert.

And it's Corporal Gus Trillion's job at the Propaganda Office to drum up recruits. But the colonists have heard one too many calls to arm to care. Disabled in battle and on the verge of burnout, Gus feels pretty apathetic himself--until his reporter friend Lyssa Baltacha stumbles upon top secret satellite footage indicating that the treacherous Sheikers are planning to invade human-occupied space. Now Gus and Lyssa must find a way to galvanize humanity to rise up against the enemy--before it's too late...

Their plan involves the recruitment of two legendary fighter aces, "Cardie" and "Brink", to lead the counter-attack. But those heroes retired long ago, in their prime, and they've never told anyone why. It's a riddle Gus and Lyssa must solve if their plan has any hope of success. A highly classified riddle. The riddle of Pyro Canyon.

Strap yourselves in for this explosive new chapter in the Cosmic Frontiers series.
