The Turing Files

Menutop
Can a robot be a hero? In this futuristic page-turner, a Robo-Naut becomes more than a machine. Romo awakens, self-aware onboard a Mars colony ship to find it in trouble. He doesn’t know how he came to be there or why, but he knows that his new life and the lives of the passengers are in danger. PACE, an authoritarian Earth-based organization, will stop at nothing to prevent the colonists from reaching Mars alive, and his presence on board may be their only hope of survival.

The colonists get a cold welcome upon arrival in Mariner Valley. They soon discover that the many organizations that planned their mission have not communicated well on specifics, like food and decent shelter. Worse, the ground crew waiting for them are a collection of angry, tired survivors of ill planning, sickened from raw solar radiation. Romo, not affected by the colony’s shortcomings, is eager to find his purpose but makes it a priority to make Mars more livable for his friends. But enemies are still in the skies above, and on the surface, as an overly ambitious colony leader seeks to rob Romo of the thing he values most - freedom.

But his first case turns up more than his employers anticipate. A rogue outsider accused of stealing a methane substation appears to be trafficking in more than just methane and running illegal gambling. The trail of evidence leads Railas beyond the walls of the colony and into the methane lakes of Titan in search of a missing woman that nobody on the station seems to remember. His quest reveals an unexpected secret, hidden from his programming. But why?

Everything in New Braintree was efficient, comfortable, and convenient, but tightly controlled by PACE, a technology provider with dark ambitions of global dominance. Their proposed justice robot, MAX, is more of a politician than a judge and lacks even simulated ethics. Railas, now fully operational, is the only alternative. He cannot be intimidated or bribed, and he was created to work against tyranny. His team has high hopes to restore justice and defeat PACE. But while Railas and his team investigate MAX and his motives, he finds something worse. His mysterious creator, who vanished from her office on the space elevator, makes a surprise appearance in VR. Her digital essence, coupled with something far away, may represent an unimaginable threat.

Through the Fold

Menutop
There’s trouble brewing on CMC-6. The golden age of space travel and asteroid mining is facing its demise when an expensive mining robot disappears while surveying a region of space known as KEL-30 or “Kelthy.” It mysteriously reappears carrying unfamiliar rock samples and imaging that doesn’t correspond with known star charts. Dr. Sally Buds and Ian Merryfield, an RAF shuttle pilot, are determined to find answers to the questions no one wants to be asked. What is in the Kelthy region and why do things disappear there? Is it a hoax intended to scare away claim jumpers or is it the greatest discovery of the twenty-first century? Ian and Sally intend to find out even if it means risking their careers and, possibly, their lives.

Settling into her new political career, now UN space commissioner, Sally Buds finds herself presiding over the aftermath of Earth's first colonial war. Baltan City, Earth's greatest achievement, tries to declare independence, spawning a violent and polarizing conflict. In the midst of this new cold war, an Earth ship from the future enters the system and appears to be approaching Baltan. Sally soon discovers that the ill-fated mission ties into her own timeline. The ship, Ultrablitz, launches 20 years after the day Sally sets foot on Baltan and involves the testing of an engine capable of creating its own space fold, with disastrous results. The crew of the Alliance ship Ultrablitz is alive, technically, but they've been in transit for 1300 years in an attempt to stop their own mission. And it becomes clear that there is more at stake than one ship, and it falls upon Sally to decide the fate of countless people across the centuries.
