Proof of Death
Episode One of the Grendel Uprising
The longest journey begins with a single step, or a high-altitude insertion from the extreme upper atmosphere. What could possibly go wrong? Aefel 70391, a proud member of the First Armored-infantry Lightning Division, must find the Emperor's assassin on a forgotten planet populated by blood thirsty Vikings.
Once, long ago when wealthy adventure tourists finally admitted they could not travel back in time, the Grendel Corporation purchased planet 0473829 for cheap and populated it with historical reenactment volunteers. Expenses soared. Bankruptcy followed. Technology went dark. The Earth System Commonwealth Military slowly withdrew protection from the economically and strategically insignificant project.
Seccon 99991, First General and Chief Strongarm of Emperor Dan Uburt-Wesson, disappeared as thoroughly as a myth after committing regicide. A small, but well informed faction of the Earth System Commonwealth Military believe that he has hidden on the primitive — and privately owned — world of Grendel 0473829.
Seccon must die; this is known.
What is the killer seeking in the last corner of human explored space?
Aefel must learn the answer or face permanent exile in the land time pretended to forget.
Proof of Death is a 17,000 word short story, complete as a standalone adventure, but part of the monthly Grendel Uprising series. Please enjoy this short fiction by Scott Moon, author of Enemy of Man, Son of Orlan, and other novels.
Episode Two of the Grendel Uprising
Loyal servants of the Earth System Commonwealth must pick a side. The assassination of Emperor Dan Uburt-Wesson has thrown civilization into chaos and no interim government will have the strength to hold the galactic empire together. Rumors of betrayal and rebellion spread from star system to star system as the real battle begins in the most unlikely place. Official news sources have confirmed that every member of the Imperial family is dead. The formation of a new galactic order is imminent. The Earth System Commonwealth has outlived its usefulness.
Only a handful of powerful people know that Aefel 70391, a decorated veteran of the First Armored-infantry Lightning Division, has located four juveniles that will change history. Can Aefel and his unlikely allies protect the Blood Royal? Has he chosen the wrong side?
Grendel Uprising: Blood Royal sets the stage for a war of rebellion, domination, and what it means to be human in the age of the Earth System Commonwealth.
The Grendel Uprising series combines science fiction and historical fiction. The setting is at once a world similar to England and Scandinavia during the time of the Danelaw and a pan galactic empire of advanced technology and deadly political upheaval. During a more prosperous time, entrepreneurs developed entire worlds as historical reenactment societies and allowed nature to take its course. Financial disaster took the planet of Grendel completely offline. There are precious few men or women who remember how they came to the alien world. Now they will face the godlike destruction of modern warfare.
Episode Three of the Grendel Uprising
Hundreds of years have passed on Grendel since they last saw a modern army. That is about to change.
Three centuries ago, the planet of Grendel was purchased and terraformed into an imitation of 9th Century England and Scandinavia. Galactic civil wars, a cycle of financial recessions, and corporate raiding forced bankruptcy. The project, like many others, was abandoned.
In Proof of Death (Episode One of the Grendel Uprising), a legendary space soldier is sent to find the man who assassinated the Emperor of the Commonwealth.
In Blood Royal (Episode Two of the Grendel Uprising), the solider and assassin maneuver against each other to save the lost children of the royal family from treacherous enemies. The dark secret of a weapon long banished is revealed.
Heavy Weapons (Episode Three in the Grendel Uprising), is the final chapter of this series of short novellas. The soldier, the assassin, and the secret weapon will collide with the people of Grendel and the traitors of the empire. The returns to haunt the Galactic Commonwealth.
Readers who enjoy military science fiction as well as historical military dramas will love The Grendel Uprising Series. From Bernard Cornwell’s Saxon Stories to the FX television drama “Vikings,” this action adventure takes science fiction / space fantasy to a new level.
