The Deathworlders by Hambone

The galactic bureaucracy of the Interspecies Dominion has long considered it impossible for those planets classified as “Deathworlds” to produce intelligent civilizations. The daily challenges of simply surviving on those disaster-wracked, plague-ridden, predator-haunted hellholes would surely favor base animals driven by instinct, rather than thinking sophonts. The natives of the Class 12 Deathworld known as “Earth”, therefore, come as . . .

THE SILVER RING

I think there’s a novel hiding in the novella somewhere

By Shutsumon, author of Tales of the First

Aug 28, 2009: The Silver Ring is a young adult fantasy thriller that opens with a bang and doesn’t let up until the climax.

The Good:

Robert Swartwood knows how to put a cliffhanger at the end of each of his short chapters. I don’t know if he initially posted as a serial – but if he did he probably had readers champing at the bit for the next part. Even with its flaws [more . . .]
