About this title

Synopsis:

A thrilling expansion to the short story "Stone Age," which appeared in the June, 2011 issue of Analog Science Fiction & Fact magazine. This mix of fast action, hard science, and light comedy pits archeologist Hannibal Carson and his brilliant and beautiful starship pilot, Jaqueline "Jackie" Roberts against tomb raiders, religious UFO cultists, and more as Carson attempts to track down dangerous alien technology.

From the Back Cover:

On a distant planet, archeologist Hannibal Carson finds the remains of a high-tech artifact in a primitive tomb.  A ruthless cult believes it's the clue to a lost cache of alien weapons.  Homeworld Defense enlists Carson and starship pilot Jacqueline "Jackie" Roberts to decipher the clue and locate the cache before the cult does.  With a lucrative black market in alien artifacts, Carson is used to dealing with tomb raiders - but the stakes this time are xenocide and interstellar war.

Bushwhacked!


   "Dr. Carson, I presume."  The tallest of the newcomers took a step forward.  He was better dressed than the others, something Carson wouldn't have thought possible in bush wear.  "Tomb raiders?  You're the one who opened it.  Myself, I prefer the term 'art collectors.'"
   "Collectors? Dealers, more likely," said Carson.  "You know my name, who are you?"
   The man paused, then grinned.  "Just call me John Stephens."
   Carson scoffed at the name.  "The real John Stephens is better than you in two ways.  Even though he was an amateur, he was a fine archeologist."  John Lloyd Stephens had been pivotal in uncovering Mayan ruins in Central America three centuries earlier.
   The tall man, Stephens, raised an eyebrow.  "And the other?"
   "He's dead."
