Alphabetical by Author

Baxter, Stephen  
Red dwarf stars last trillions of years, and their planets can be habitable for humans. Such is the world of Proxima Centauri. But first it must be colonized, and no one wants to be a settler. There is no glamor that accompanies it, nor is there the ease of becoming a citizen of an already-tamed world. There is only hardship, loneliness, emptiness. But that's where Yuri comes in. Because sometimes exploration isn't voluntary. It must be coerced.

Ares Rising #1: War Dogs
We called them Gurus. They made their presence on Earth known 13 years ago, providing tech and scientific insights, becoming indispensable advisors, and promising even more gifts. It took them a while to admit that they were being hounded by enemies and needed our help. Skyrines like me were volunteered. These enemies were already moving to establish a beachhead, but not on Earth. On Mars.
