1 Hell Hound

by Ernest Bywater

'Once a Marine, always a Marine.' was the code he lived by. His dictionary had no definition for 'impossible:' an exceptional man who wouldn't let his superiors stop him from doing what he saw as his duty, even if it's by himself after being retired. The story is told by his niece who's concerned about how the authorities are trying to rewrite his life for their own purposes.

Some determined computer geeks take on the global might of LET, and win! They defeat LET by getting deep inside their own software!

9 Outward Bound

by Mark Randall

A story in the Asteroid Hunters Universe
This is the story of the 'Seward's Folly,' just returned from an expedition to the belt. It is about the preparations they make for their next trip. This will be different from any other trip to the belt. They are heading towards the far side of the belt. Virgin, uncharted territory. This story can be read by itself. But I recommend that you at least read 'Mosley Station' first.
