Evan Gabriel wasn't always a feared and respected North American Federation Navy Commander. Before dangerous missions to the ice-bound planet of Poliahu, the deadly jungle world of Eden, and politically corrupt Mars, he was a simple recruit, fighting to make his mark in the elite Naval Special Forces…and was part of a top-secret military experiment that would change his life forever. Zero Point tells the tale of a young man faced with difficult choices and dangerous trials.

There was nothing extraordinary about Amanda Burrage's life. Working in a library by day and helping out at a homeless shelter a few evenings a week was a lonely existence, but within a few hours, it was going to be an existence that would be lost to her forever! Her life was about to be turned upside down, as she would find herself walking into a storm that would open her mind to a world which belonged on the pages of books and bad horror movies.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one. A thief, a candlemaker, an ex-mercenary, and a pig farmer walk into a trap…and what happens to them is no joke. When Riyria is hired to retrieve a jester’s treasure, Royce and Hadrian must match wits with a dwarf who proves to be anything but a fool. Difficult choices will need to be made, and in the end those who laugh last do so because they are the only ones to survive.

Zachary Quinto - best known for his role as the Nimoy-approved Spock in the recent Star Trek reboot and the menacing, power-stealing serial killer, Sylar, in Heroes - brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi. One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone - 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don't know.

The year is 2031. The United States has sealed itself off from the rest of the world. The state of the country is dire; the Constitution is ancient history, the poverty level is at an all-time high, and there is more corruption in the government than ever before. And oh yeah, Mel Gibson is president. But something is wrong with Mr. Gibson. He doesn't seem quite...human. What unfolds is a battle unlike any other. Bring on the Invaders, a secret society whose mission is to destroy the unknown forces in D.C. and take back this country.
