Nepenthe Rising

by John Triptych


In the far future, two major factions are locked in a galactic cold war. As tensions mount between the technocratic Union and the genome-harnessing Concordance, both sides anxiously watch for a chance to conquer the other.

The Nepenthe is a pirate vessel, loyal to neither. Led by the enigmatic Captain Dangard, her rough and ready crew includes the cat-like alien Commander Creull, Zeno the immortal synthetic, the dashing Garrett Strand, and Duncan Hauk, a promising young recruit.

Hired by a cryptic employer, the crew waylays a transport ship carrying a mysterious passenger. In due time, this incident sparks the beginnings of an interstellar conflict that could threaten the state of known space.

Shards of Eternity

by John Triptych


Betrayed by fellow pirates, the Nepenthe is heavily damaged and trapped behind enemy territory. The practical thing to do is attempt an escape back to the neutral zones, where they can lick their wounds and count themselves lucky to fight another day.

But their stalwart captain has other plans. The crew knows that if they let the renegades go, they stand to lose their reputation as the most fearsome raider outfit in known space. As they plan an elaborate revenge, they soon realize the true stakes revolve around a fabled artifact, one that could determine the fate of an entire star cluster.
