In a future where Mother Earth has cast her children to the distant starts to begin anew and colonize the cosmos, the planet remains depleted of natural resources. Its air polluted by caustic iron and belching smoke, Earth faces her last desperate days in the grip of global environmental collapse.In one final and feeble effort, Earth’s Grand President Mankin musters the dregs of his fleet and sends three separate missions to the deepest reaches of space. Their mission: solicit help from far-flung colonial civilizations, or watch the planet die. Also includes the science fiction adventures, “Battling Bolto”, the story of a giant, con man who’s running an interstellar scam, while the biggest trick of all lies right under his nose; and “Tough Old Man”, in which an aging constable’s lack of feelings is not a matter of insensitivity, but of a secret- and surprising - side of his character.All systems are go, as the audio version of When Shadows Fall takes us on a flight into the future, where the fate of Earth rests in one man’s hands and heart. 1.

Take the law into your own hands, and you risk losing your grip on everything else - including your life. Lee Weston is as good-looking as he is quick tempered, and he’s got a lot to be angry about.His father murdered, his family ranch torched, he goes gunning for Harvey Dodge - the man who he's convinced is the killer - and it’s Lee who ends up on the wrong side of the law. Shot in a gunfight, on the run and running out of time, he holes up in a mountain hideout and waits for death to come find him. But he wakes up in the arms of a beautiful woman who has beat death to his door and nursed him back to life. She’s the first and only woman he has ever fallen for, and her name is Ellen Dodge - Harvey’s daughter. Can a great loss lead to a great love? Can the search for revenge lead to redemption? The answers lie in the wild heart of the Wild West - in Branded Outlaw.“This is yet another superb production, in which you'll be ducking bullets and hiding behind rocks to get your next shot in.” (Gather.com) 1.
