9781329056213: Ship Of Storms

Marcus Legend is a unique guy with a unique name and a unique past. As that past has shown, he also has a unique talent for turning good fortune into bad, and getting himself into deep trouble. When his fortune hits bottom, a psyche-reader by the name of Werner visits him in prison, where he's serving a 43-year sentence for his latest misadventure. Werner offers to change his life.

Mars, Earth's most distant colony, has rebelled, and Earth's attempts to put down the rebellion have been crippled by an old psychological problem that first appeared years ago with the earliest manned probes to the outer planets. A new study is in place finally to examine and maybe solve the problem, and it needs a unique volunteer.

Eventually, as Terran authorities manipulate Marcus into joining the war, he finds himself on his way to Mars at the helm of Earth's premier battleship, and with his own secret agenda. Constantly haunted by his past, his last chance at good fortune could make him a hero, or seal his unlucky fate for a final time. Drop this book into your shopping cart now to follow Marcus through his adventures and all of the troublesome characters he encounters.  You can start today, and be there at the very end.

About the Author:

Science Fiction author Ken Doggett has been writing for many years, beginning with short stories published in prominent and not-so-prominent Science Fiction magazines: Space & Time and Shayol, among others.  Now, like many modern writers, he has chosen to directly publish his novels and short-story collections.He was born in Atlanta in 1945, grew up in next-door DeKalb County, and developed a love for reading right after he discovered the school library. He read almost everything, but was especially fascinated by the fantastic tales of spaceships, space exploration, and conflict among the stars. He soon became familiar with the writers who would influence his own work: Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, John W. Campbell, and later, Larry Niven and Harlan Ellison. He graduated from Avondale High School just outside Atlanta, and after a stint in the U.S. Army assigned as a radio mechanic to the 2nd Armored Division at Ft. Hood, Texas, he worked in the field of electronics and electronic technology. After many years of reading all of those great Science Fiction stories, he decided, "I can do that," and wrote some of his own.  In July 1981 he sold his first published story, Timestopper, to Amazing Stories. Eventually, with more of his stories reaching publication, he became a veteran writer in the Science Fiction genre.But he has done more in the arts than write a few stories.  He once thought he could draw and paint pictures, and he created and sold a few landscape paintings, both oil and acrylic.  You can view some of these on his website.  He currently lives in a rural farming community in Morgan County, Georgia, where he writes full time.
