Famed archaeologist. Daring adventurer. Total imposter.
Jannigan Beck is the exact spitting image of his father: Sean Beck, the most famous explorer in the galaxy. But ever since the elder Beck disappeared on a mission inside an alien wormhole, Jannigan has secretly been masquerading as his father, shaking hands, doing press junkets, and attending meetings.
But when a wealthy trade consortium plans an expedition back into the same mysterious wormhole where Jannigan’s father perished, they demand that Sean Beck personally lead the mission to recover an ancient alien artifact. And they are willing to pay handsomely for his presence.
Now, posing as his father, Jannigan Beck (a complete greenhorn) must command a crew that doesn’t respect him on a perilous mission to the uncharted edge of the galaxy. There he will face alien megafauna, hostile competitors, and a mysterious force with the power to destroy worlds.
THE WELL OF FOREVER
Man-about-town Jannigan Beck had no business leading an archaeological expedition through an alien wormhole. After all, he’d always been more at home in an exclusive pleasure emporium than on the bridge of a Barnes LV-900 Lamprey-class scout.
But when Jannigan agreed to lead the ill-fated mission through the Fountain, everything in his life changed.
Now, with the wormhole closed and half his crew gone, Jannigan finds himself hunted by the ruthlessly fanatical Mayir who are hell-bent on recovering an ancient alien artifact with the power to destroy worlds.
THE CRIMSON PERIL
The remote frontier moon of Safadin is filled with dense jungles, ancient alien structures, fantastic creatures, and a deadly secret. Not the best place to for Jannigan Beck to crash land. Especially since the moon is now under the control of the tyrannical Mayir.
But Jannigan is just relieved to have escaped from the wormhole known as the Fountain.
Little does he know that his troubles are just beginning…
Joined by the brilliant, but impulsive biologist Kira Lark and a plucky utility bot named TenSix, Jannigan plunges head-on into Saladin’s mysteries, including a secret lab where the Mayir are performing unspeakable experiments…
From hero to hunted…
After narrowly escaping a deadly Mayir research lab, Jannigan Beck is ready for some peace and quiet. Unfortunately for him, the Universe has other plans… Now he finds himself on the run from both the Imperial military and merciless Mayir bounty hunters—and searching for a mysterious clone bot factory on a long dead planet hidden in the folds of rift space.
A DEADLY MYSTERY AMONG THE STARS
Zoan development proceeding. Acquire Numic Gaff. Key to Dagger.
The coded message intercepted from the tyrannical and warlike Mayir was only three mysterious sentences, but Imperial Intelligence believes it references an ancient artifact that could turn the tide of war.
Naturally, they seek out the one man in the galaxy who might be able to help: the renowned adventurer and archaeologist Sean Beck.
But with Beck still suffering from the crippling effects of having been tortured by the Mayir, it is up to his son Jannigan to take up the mantle.
This exciting new chapter of the Star Rim Empire saga features epic, fast-paced sci-fi action, lost civilizations, and swashbuckling old-school adventure on the lawless galactic frontier.
