Discounted to 99c/99p from June 7 – 14: Dreams Defiled, book 2 of the First Contact trilogy. See how someone becomes truly evil. Each character who has received the alien message is taken to their failing point. A story of corruption, greed, murder, and the man whose only skills are destructive, with a strong science element like The Martian. Meanwhile, on Mars, Nathan Gill discovers there is more to this lump of rock than any of the party realised, and he may have the opportunity to change the relationship between humanity and the nearby alien civilizations. But can he make things better or will the aliens see his efforts as defiance of their wishes?

From April 13 – 19, Red Gold is on Kindle Countdown discount, for those in the US and UK. (Don't blame me for other Amazons.) The colonization of Mars leads to the opportunities for a massive fraud on Earth, which David Gill, on Mars must stop. Pity his business partner is generating the fraud, and has the only guns on Mars. The background also shows the difficulties settlement on Mars must overcome, but it also shows some ways to overcome them. An example: it proposes a superconducting magnet at the sol –Mars L1 position years before NASA did. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009U0458Y

A small boast. At the planetary science vision workshop (Feb 27 – March 1, 2017) Jim Green, NASA Planetary Science Division Director, made a proposal of putting a magnetic shield at the Mars-Sun-L1 position to protect Mars from high energy solar particles. See http://www.popularmechanics.com/space/moon-mars/a25493/magnetic-shield-mars-atmosphere/ . I made that proposal in Red Gold (published 2012)

Have I made a verified prediction?

In the latest copy of Nature (vol 541, p 521 and p525) there are two papers that show that Earth and Moon accreted from a very narrow zone. That means that the giant collision model is wrong, and our water and biogenetic materials did not come from the asteroid belt. However, the theory outlined in my "Planetary formation and biogenesis" is, as far s I know, the only theory that requires these results, and this theory originated when I was writing a novel "Red Gold" about the colonisation and fraud on Mars. (The very first version of the theory is in an appendix.)

A Kindle Countdown for "Red Gold" starting 99c on June 2. Murder and fraud during the first colonisation of Mars, that have to be beaten by the nature of Mars.

Baer Books recently held a contest for the best opening lines in a book and they collected the best 20. The great news (for me) is I scored with Athene's Prophecy! The sentence:
Pallas Athene was in disgrace, but she felt that it was worth every gram of it for she had immortalized herself, starting over three thousand years before she was born.
