Proximity: A Novel Of The Navy’s Elite Bomb Squad

by Stephen Phillips

EOD – “It’s a lot like brain surgery, except if we screw up the patient detonates….Oh yeah, and we do it underwater.”
– A Navy EOD Technician

The Sailors of the United States Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community “perform under pressure” in the hazardous job of bomb disposal, often deep beneath the sea…alone.

An EOD Technician must have the brains of an engineer, the hands of a surgeon, and the courage of a martyr. In the U.S. Navy, carrier flight operations only occur under the watchful eye of EOD Techs ready to respond to ordnance accidents. U.S. Marines assault enemy beachheads only after EOD Techs clear the littoral seas and landing zones of mines. The U.S. Secret Service even relies on military bomb squads to protect the President and visiting foreign dignitaries. Perhaps the best testimony of their value is that when the Navy needs to place a limpet mine under an enemy ship it tasks the Navy SEALs, but to respond to such an attack – the Navy summons EOD.

Proximity highlights the exciting work of one EOD detachment as they become enmeshed in the efforts of a terrorist coalition operating both in Europe and the United States. Lieutenant “Jazz” Jascinski and the men of Detachment Four become the key to helping the FBI apprehend these terrorists – until their unique skills place them under suspicion. To protect themselves, the Techs must race to find the culprits before they become the next victims…

It will require trust in ideas she barely believes, and more courage than has ever been expected of her. When it becomes clear that the alternative is her friends’ deaths and the unchecked growth of an evil crime lord’s empire, Teddie accepts the challenge and shows those guilty of unspeakable crimes just how powerful a young woman can be.

Beast Of The Field

by Peter Jordan Drake

Based on a true story.

In 1920’s Kansas, the mangled body of champion buggy racer Tommy Donnan has been discovered beneath his carriage, dragged to his death by his own horse. His twelve-year-old sister, Millie, does not believe his death was an accident. She wants to know the truth behind the night Tommy died. But with her mother given over to grief, her father to fate, and her only surviving brother, Junior, a shell of himself since returning from The Great War, Millie will have to seek this truth alone.

Enter Charlie Sterno: the grim, glum, hard-drinking Pinkerton detective with a nose for murder. He lets himself get too close to Millie, so close that the case becomes personal. It is then up to the young girl and the outsider to negotiate the murderous Klan underbelly of small-town America to find justice.

But Tommy’s killer may be closer than Millie would have ever believed. And the solemn promise she made to her brother never to reveal his last secret to anyone means Sterno will have to get to the truth the hard way.

The hardest way.

The Wings Of Fate: The Summoner Awaketh

by Charles Scott Link

So hath The Wings of Fate flown this day…

After witnessing the murder of his father, orphan Deswin Hallack joins the Knights Academy of Salinet with only one goal: vengeance. But just prior to graduation, war comes to Salinet and he is given the unintended mission of summoning protective immortal beings called Deities to defend his homeland. Will The Wings of Fate fly Deswin and his companions along the proper path or will he let his past get the better of him? One thing is certain in these dark times: The Summoner Awaketh.

A countless number of realms, each upon their own plane of existence, make up the universe in which humans dwell. Within these realms, small governments rule their people, economies thrive, and corruption runs deep. Travel between the realms is solely based out of the Ingress Temples, mystical portals that were not created by mortal men. How are so many realms kept in check?

The Unity: an all-powerful ruling system full of greedy representatives from each realm and iron-fisted officials. But where secret passing of coin and poisoned words have no influence, there is only one realm that stands proud.

Welcome to Salinet, a realm of stony mountains and vast plains, of thick forests and dry deserts, of Deities and natural power. Salinet is the only realm that can call upon the power of the Deities, eight mystical beings who each have command over specific elements and abilities. There is only one way to call upon this magnificent power: the Summoner, one individual designated to journey around Salinet and summon the Deities.

Jealous and frightened of this power, the other realms have sought to rip it from Salinean hands for centuries. The Knights Academy of Salinet produces the finest warriors to ever see the field of battle. However, with such dependence upon the power of the Deities, Salinet has not the strength in numbers or allies to defend itself against all-out assault. Taking advantage of this weakness, and the fact that there has not been a Summoner for nearly two decades, the rich and powerful realm of Bosula readies itself for war…
