Book Description

A collection of 10 short stories set in a Galactic Confederation in the far future. This galaxy spanning society thrives on intergalactic trade and these stories are about the people who make that possible. Check out Scott's other titles set in the same SF universe.

Running From Customs - The story of Tramp Darvon and his crew as they take on a daring mission that they must complete in a set time period. They have to contend with local authorities, ships in distress, and the stellar nursary that makes the region dangerous to traverse.

Beautiful Trouble - Hardened smuggler Hazdon Brenker falls for the story of a young girl seeking revenge on a gangster. He takes the challenging job of stealing the cargo, but revenge is not all the girl is after and it isn’t until the job is over that Brenker learns the truth.

Where Legends Begin - Follow young pilot, Ven Zaran, as he struggles with depression and drugs until he find Captain Karnock. Under the Captain’s tutalage, Ven rises to lead pilot when his life is turned on end by a woman. He finds the motivation to get his life in order. As he and his wife are expecting their first child, Ven has a chance to buy a used ship and finally become a captain himself.

Test of Command - Customs pilot Stormus Rolfel is up for a promotion. To get it he must pass a test by commanding a patrol mission. While the beacon they are assigned to seems quiet, the patrol sees just about every type of boarding possible. He complets the mission successfully, but will it be enough to get the promotion to Patrol Commander?

Overture of Friendship - Ven Zaran takes a break from commanding his own ship to help a business collegue. Alderin Balerio has given Ven plenty of work in the past and they have worked closely. His niece is in trouble and he asks Ven, as a friend, to help. Ven takes the offer of friendship seriously and refuses any money. He and Balerio set out on a rescue mission and turn a business aqaintance into a friendship that will last for years.

Race On The Rim - Stormus Rolfel and his longtime friend and fellow customs agent, Jimmed Albanis, board a party space cruiser for some needed R&R. But the cruise doesn’t remain quiet. Pirates, tempted by the potential ransom of a famous passenger, fall on the ship. The pirates never knew what hit them as the two burly customs agents derail their attempt to board and take the cruise liner.

Chased By Shadows - A routine delivery for Alluren Beldaras and her crew turns dangers when a mysterious ship shadows them. When they successfully deliver their cargo after a firefight it appears to be over, but whoever was shadowing them is now out for revenge. When her ship is damaged, Captain Beldaras and her crew must use all their skill to make it to the nearest port alive.

A Night At Nova Trango - On the first night back at work after losing her mother, Taru must contend with the varied clientele that the Nova Trango Bar gets from the neighboring port. She must handle drunks, rowdy pirates, an elderly regular, plus a lawyer who brings her the long secret identity of who her father was.

Seeking Justice - Green skinned Zeccan, Wallivo Haroong, has been on the lamb for seven years. When his ship is laid up for six months, he decides that the time has come to clear his name. He sneaks back to his homeworld and ferrets out the truth of the crash that made him a fugitive and plans his revenge on the classmate who framed him.

A Captain At War - Not all is peaceful as Ven Zaran and his associates battle the big corporations in a fight for survival.

3.0 out of 5 stars light reading June 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a collection of short stories that are classic space operas. It is some nice light reading.

The author's writing style is very plain English, at about a fifth grade reading level. The writing is OK. It sometimes lacks from trying to create suspense or cover plot holes by vaguely describing the events. There are enough spelling and grammar errors to be a bit annoying.

One of the stories takes place in space war, which doesn't fit with the rest. It would be nice to see that story expanded into an entire book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hyperspace stories July 17, 2012
By Puna J
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For me, this is an excellent collection of short stories all set in the universe of the Galactic Confederation. In fact it's going into my permanent anthology collection. These are stories about the independent traders and the officers of the Customs Corps. There is loads of action and adventure. I will be looking out for more by Scott Seldon...hopefully some novels set in this universe. The stories are intelligent, well-written and definitely worth your time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but... March 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The idea of a number of short stories that share something in common, is well executed and most of the stories were quite fascinating and the characters, both interesting and believable.

So why, if I liked the book, did I only give it three stars? I'm trying to send a message to the author, that editing a book consists of more than using a spelling checker. The author seems fond of typing "they" instead of "the", and the usual "to" and "too" and "you", "your" and "you're" substitutions are present, plus a few others.

If you are tolerant of editing errors, I will recommend this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Basic Space Opera for Beginners & YA(?) January 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of stories that are best described as junior space opera. The story lines themselves are very good but there are grammar/spelling/typo/verb tense problems on almost every page, making it hard for the critical reader to flow through. There is very little tension in these stories and by the time you get to the 2nd or 3rd story, you realize that there will be virtually nothing that gets in the way to slow down the protagonist. Anything that could add a dimension of complexity is summarily dealt with instead of being used to add depth. I do wish that there were more connectedness between the stories, as I like the characters that were developed, and would like to see them interacting even more in subsequent yarns. With a bit of editing and the addition of relevant story arcs and dramatic build-up, I look forward to seeing a few more of these stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent stories November 5, 2013

Ten short stories - well written, light, interesting and addictive.

The stories take place in the same reality and are connected witch each other (except first two) which makes it kind of space opera.

It reminds me Firefly TV series (which is extraordinary and I recommend it to everyone) - every story is short adventure sf, most of them has totally unbelievable plot (like two "soldiers" saving big tourist cruiser from over 40 pirates, and pirates captain asking if they will let him go if he just fly away) but it is almost deliciously unbelievable.

If you like Firefly you will live this stories and vice versa.

There is unfortunately one minor problem with editing - there are plenty typos, maybe every two or three pages - like "the" instead of "they", "he" instead of "her". Somebody (author, editor?) should necessarily read the book and correct all typos and submit corrected version to Amazon.

This is an easy read. It is more about people and how they think and make it through some interesting situations.

More About the Author

Scott Seldon lives in Colorado with his wife and family in a house brimming with old and new computers. He is a student of technology, history, anthropology, languages, and cosmology. Each separate direction of study has enriched his imagination, but he credits the creative output of George Lucas and Isaac Asimov for the direction it has taken. He turned his creativity to science fiction in his teens and has never looked back.

In his writing, Scott strives to create rich worlds and characters. Although his stories take place in the future, he often looks to the past to give his stories a solid background. He's is more likely to watch Captain Blood than Star Wars to find inspiration on the feel of a story. He reads the latest titles by Jack McDevitt followed by C. L. Moore's stories of Northwest Smith written decades ago with Les Miserables and the Princess of Mars next on his reading list.
