Read full description of the books The Martian Marauders:A series of inexplicable solar system disasters in the near future, including exploding gas giants and asteroids hurled into the sun, forces a panicky acceleration of space technology and weaponry. But humanity has not learned much from Mars exploration and the discovery of Star Drive, and by 2033 the United System Space Force has not only wrecked the earth with the planet-destabilizing Xon bomb, but in evacuating the remnants of Earth’s population to Mars, has also somehow overlooked an indigenous, intelligent race which is quite displeased by the arrival of two billion shellshocked humans.
By June 2034 the native Martians have risen in rebellion, led by their new human emperor, the traitor Sam Hergs. Amid family squabbles arising from the presence of four Commer brothers aboard his ship, Captain Jack Commer finds himself in the deep Martian desert battling Martian insurgents armed with shatterguns that crack their victims into millions of jagged pieces of glass.
Read information about the authorMichael D. Smith was raised in the Northeast and the Chicago area, then moved to Texas to attend Rice University, where he began developing as a writer and visual artist. In addition to exhibiting and selling paintings and drawings, he has completed sixteen novels. His novella The First Twenty Steps, published by Sortmind Press, is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The Martian Marauders, Book One of his Jack Commer, Supreme Commander science fiction series, was published by Double Dragon Publishing in 2012, with Book Two, Jack Commer, Supreme Commander following later that year, and Book Three, Nonprofit Chronowar, in May 2013. The next two in the series, Collapse and Delusion and The Wounded Frontier, are also scheduled to be published by Double Dragon. His dystopian, black comedy novel CommWealth was published August 2015 by Class Act Books, and in December 2015 Sortmind Press published his novel The Soul Institute, available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Smith's writing in both literary and science fiction genres uses humor to investigate psychological themes. His web site, www.sortmind.com, is named for his 2009 novel Sortmind, which chronicles the Telepathic Database, urban architectural wars, and two sets of aliens with opposing ideas about dealing with the human race. In his blog, blog.sortmind.com, Smith explores art and writing processes. Both his web sites contain further examples of his writing and visual art.
