R. M. Meluch

Chicago Red

R. M. Meluch

America had been free, a democracy. But now Edward III was king, and America was a land with a small, wealthy elite and a vast body of peasants eking out their meager living in the countryside or preying upon one another in dangerous city slums. Edward's soldiers and especially his executioner, Brigadier General Tow, would see that this was exactly how life in America remained.

Only one man ever had the courage to speak out against the tyrant's rule - a man driven by the dream of restoring democracy to the land, only to become the martyr ignominiously hanged on Boot Hill. But from his death a new leader was born, a visionary young man not quite of this world, Chicago Red. His words would take action and be the spark to set the land ablaze with a new kind of revolution...

And of that kind, one Family, and above all, one individual, held out a promise for a very different future. Teal Ray Stewart, a Bay Royalist, and a very special one, might prove to be a key figure, not only to the future of his planet, but to the future of mankind

War Birds

R. M. Meluch


I don't know who hit me or even if it was an intentional shot. There was no enemy ship registering in that direction. I think it was a random hit.

I thought my number was up, but I had an idea and anything was worth a try. If I could rig a power supply to activate the controls, it might afford enough thrust to kick me into a parking orbit around Erde.

Leaning out into infinity, I jerry-rigged my ship. I Pulled myself in and sealed the hatch again. No time left. This was it. I threw the switch. Nothing happened. Seconds ticking past. I beat on the switch. A flash. The ship lurched. The wrong way. The directional rocket's blast drove me into the atmosphere, and my ship with me in it was burning up...

In the year 2448, the interstellar Empire of Rome spans an area almost as wide as the far-flung colonial worlds of the United States of America.

Caesar Numa Pompeii is still rebuilding his shredded empire after the catastrophic war that his predecessor, Caesar Romulus, waged against the United States. War's end left Romulus in a nanovirus-induced coma, captive of Caesar Numa.

Numa has under his command a powerful living weapon--a patterner, an augmented man capable of synthesizing vast amounts of data into actionable intelligence.

Now, Numa has lost his prisoner, and his patterner may have turned on him, while the U.S.S. Merrimack has lost the commander of her Fleet Marines, Colonel T. R. Steele.

Events take a Mobius turn when fanatical devotees of Romulus rescue their fallen leader from his tortured captivity and fashion him into the most capable patterner ever created. Romulus is back, more insanely brilliant than ever. But without his queen, all the power in the universe means nothing. Romulus will move heaven and Earth and space and time to rescue his beloved Claudia.

Admiral John Farragut returns to the space battleship Merrimack in an attempt to head off the impending temporal catastrophe. Past and future hinge on a critical moment when time broke once before in the distant star cluster known as the Myriad.
