A collection of short stories in The Beta-Earth Chronicles Book Series


20 years in the future, humanity has been decimated by climate change and waves of fatal plagues released by Islamic terrorists.

In this new world, Special Operative Mary Carpenter of the Commonwealth of Independent States takes on deadly opponents, including white supremacists, cells of the Everlasting Caliphate, and an international organization of smugglers called Hammerhead plotting to dominate the planet with an all-powerful fear gas.

Join Mary Carpenter in four fast-paced, futuristic adventures that might be in tomorrow’s headlines.

Hammerhead. Twenty years from now,  Hammerhead will be the most powerful international criminal network in the world.

Hammerhead. The astonishing success of Hammerhead will result from their secret means of smuggling illegal goods and cargo undetected anywhere in the world. 

Hammerhead. Joining forces with the Chinese terrorist triad, the Quai Do, Hammerhead is preparing to unleash a frightening new drug that will subjugate all humanity to their will.

To thwart Hammerhead, special operative Mary Carpenter travels to the Virgin Islands where she infiltrates the headquarters of Brazilian crime lord, Marcus Calavera. There, Mary must uncover the secret to the smuggling operation and investigate what drug the organization is stockpiling in its quest to quash all opposition to their domination. 

Hammerhead: The latest chapter in the Beta-Earth Chronicles set on our planet four years before six aliens arrive in Jamaica and change everything.
