As the tanks roll in, the people must decide if they are willing to sacrifice everything to take on the government. The stakes have never been higher…and it’s winner takes all.
The bounty hunters have sided with the rebels, but things go awry when the mysterious Zenith State captures two of "Havoc" Joe Ballast's closest friends. In the midst of revolution, he must launch a rescue, but the deeper he goes into Zenith, the more secrets he uncovers.

Featuring galactic conspiracies, epic interstellar missions, and three captains at the front of an interplanetary war, this explosive collection includes all five Fringe novels plus a bonus short story.
War looms on the horizon…
An old space captain hounded by arthritis and war memories, Aramis Reyne barely makes ends meet by running mail to the farthest, most dangerous reaches of the fringe. When he’s offered a no-questions-asked contract, he jumps at the opportunity to make some extra credits. But, he soon learns that he should’ve asked questions…and that there are far worse things in the galaxy than being broke.
Bounty hunters are the closest thing to law enforcement across the wastelands, but most folks can't tell the difference between the criminals and their chasers. Havoc Joe Ballast and his team at the Haft Agency are trying to change that by picking their own targets and going after the worst criminals. But that's not working out so well for them.
They should've stuck to the rules.
Their first target, the bloodthirsty Red Dead gang, is terrorizing hapless refugees. Things go bad fast when Havoc and his friends are ambushed and forced to flee to the lawless Wilds. Stranded in deadly territory, the hunters must align with a secret rebel group to survive while turning the tables on their merciless enemies.
Join the bounty hunters as they fight for their lives in the post-apocalyptic wastelands. Their enemies may think they have won, but the hunters are just getting started.
Hugh Howey launched the idea on Kboards, a forum for Kindle readers, but also the meeting place of an active community of indie writers.
The result is this anthology of 101 very short stories by 101 authors.
To make it more attractive for you, the reader, we set ourselves a limit of a thousand words. You should be able to read each story in under five minutes — on your desktop computer, laptop, or tablet at home or in the office, but also on your smartphone, on the go, while you are commuting or waiting at a coffee shop for your significant other to arrive.
We included as many genres as we could. We hope that maybe, with only five minutes of your time on the line that would otherwise be wasted anyway, you'll be tempted to venture outside your comfort zone and try out some new genres and new authors.
Blood and debris smother what remains of the colonies. The colonies’ only hope is to fight back.
The Collective is coming at three torrent leaders from every angle, bringing bloodshed and violence across the fringe. Critch leads the Terran front, trying to stop the Collective from advancing on the remaining fringe colonies. Heid runs missions to save refugees. And Reyne faces impossible odds at uniting rebel armies that are more different than alike into a single force to be reckoned with.
To win, the rebels will have to cross a line from which there’s no return. Friends will die. Sacrifices must be made. Will giving up everything and everyone to win be enough to push back the Collective?
