Today is the day. For the first time, I’ve got other authors – including some powerhouses – playing in my sandbox. SPOTREPS – A Maelstrom Rising Anthology is live on Kindle and Paperback.

The World Order is Crumbling…

…And only a handful stand in the breach.

But should they defend the status quo, or destroy it?

The Triarii were founded to hold the line, to fill in the gaps where order was breaking down in the US, and then overseas as what looks very much like World War III breaks out.  They aren’t the only ones, though.

Many men and women can see what’s coming.  And they’re pissed.

From the Stateside unrest to peacekeeping missions abroad, to mercenary operations in Africa and South America, twelve authors bring their talents to the Maelstrom Rising series.  Twelve stories of action, combat, and intrigue set against the backdrop of a new kind of World War.

The future of war is amorphous and dirty.

Are you ready?

    Spotreps was in a word..outstanding. I’m usually not a fan of short stories, but couldn’t put this book down. All excellent stories, clearly ripped from today’s headlines. Scary as they could easily be a glimpse into the not so distant future. Full disclosure, all stories were read with my constant companion by my side…a Kahr CM9, grip shaved and slide cerakoted. Good times.
