Galena – Book Three of the Galena Chronicles
Eleven years ago, colonists from Earth made Galena their home.
It is a planet of wondrous and deadly mysteries. Survival means adaptation – yet there can be no adaptation to an ancient corruption festering deep beneath the soil. Something is waiting down there, altering the plants and wildlife, twisting them to fit its dark plan.
At the same time, progress has finally come to Galena. The dream of cities and superhighways suddenly becomes reality…and the only price is the total subjugation of the colonists who would build them.
Gavin Alder is torn between two battlefronts. The future of the colony is balanced on a knife’s edge, and he must choose to stay and fight or entrust himself to a power beyond all human knowledge…
…because the creature corrupting the soul of Galena might be the only thing that can save it.
JOURNEY TO TITAN
Mission One – the book that started it all.
Five months to Titan. Four brave crew members. One incredible mystery.
Jeff Dolan always wanted to be an astronaut. After helping a private space company build a ship that can travel to Saturn’s largest moon in five months, he gets his chance.
Shortly after launch, a devastating malfunction forces Jeff and the crew to make a choice: continue to Titan, or go back home. As the truth about their mission unravels, one thing is clear: someone on Earth knew about the system flaw and covered it up.
Yet surviving the journey isn’t the crew’s only concern. Even if they make it to Titan, they will face another problem:
Something is already there.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in Cape Canaveral, Florida, Samuel grew up a mile from the gates of Kennedy Space Center. His grandmother built space shuttles, his father designed scientific equipment that flew on them, and Samuel watched the launches from his rattling front porch, dreaming of the stars.
His best-selling novel Mission One, a near-future first contact odyssey, is the book that launched his career as a science fiction writer.
He recently spent three years traveling the world with his wife. They welcomed their son near the end of that journey and are now spending their days exploring the United States while Samuel works on his next book.
