Binge-Worthy Reads: Return of the Aghyrians by Patty Jansen

Watcher’s Web is an exciting survival story set in an alien wilderness.

She is lost on an alien planet. He said he’d help her get home. He lied.

Jessica’s plane develops engine trouble over the dry Australian inland—and crashes in thick, unfamiliar rainforest.

A group she thinks is a search party shows up, but it consists of large-eyed not-quite people who kill all survivors except Jessica and a long-haired hippie named Brian.

No one is going to come to rescue her. In fact, they’re not even on Earth.

While the pair wrestle their way through the forest in search for help, Jessica becomes ever more suspicious of Brian. Why does he know so much about the world where they have ended up? Why is he so insistent on helping her?

Jessica has always been able to use her mind to tell animals what to do and now she’s hearing voices in her head. Another man is pleading her not to listen to Brian. Except this man can kill someone with a single look, and he uses his mental powers to order people around.

In this utterly strange and dangerous world where people seem to want something from her, who can she trust?

A gritty survival story in the vein of The Hunger Games, set in a Star Wars locality.

The rich and powerful tapestry of world building captures the imagination and just doesn’t let go. The characters are full of life and complexity. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It is easy to identify with the peoples and through suspension of disbelief, this world was very real, as are the struggles being faced. Love books that make me think about what I would or wouldn’t do in that situation. Great strong female lead.

Hollywood, are you listening? This story should be made into a movie! Avatar, move over. There’s a new kid on the block! This story is well written and the characters have plenty of depth. The story flows from one page to the next, from one chapter to the next. It keeps you on the edge of your seat from page one til the end.

Mythographers we Love: Stargate Command

In case you live under a rock, Stargate is a massive franchise that has heavily influenced quite a lot of media. It has also influenced a lot of our stories.

Stargate is resurrected after a few years of inactivity through an all-inclusive portal called Stargate Command. To kick things into gear they offer a brand new web-series called Stargate Origins, which is a prequel and an origin story of the discovery of the Stargate on Earth.

The show is well-made but low budget for now, with short episodes. You can watch 1-3 for free and sign up with a one-time fee for full access to everything, including all the movies and all the series before that.

By purchasing the All-Access Pass, fans will have access to exclusive content, including full episodes of the new STARGATE series, Stargate Origins, and fans will also have access to a library of STARGATE TV shows and movies, including SG-1, Atlantis, Universe, and all three movies, Stargate (1994), Stargate: The Ark of Truth (2008) and Stargate: Continuum (2008). All-Access Pass holders will be the first to view each episode of the new digital series Stargate Origins episodes.

Fans in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are able to purchase the All-Access Pass

You can use Opera VPN app to bypass the country limitations, though you should expect it to affect streaming.

The All Access costs just $20. That fact alone makes us really appreciate this modern move. Instead of going for a subscription model, this all-you-can-binge website has it all, trivia, interviews, forums, video that complete the Stargate mythos and promises more to come. Unfortunately, this access seems to be finite:

All-Access starts on September 20, 2017 and ends on May 15, 2018. After May 15, 2018, the All-Access content will no longer be available through your All-Access Pass, but you will still be a member of the Stargate Command community, which will continue.

Read the FAQ

So, it seems they’ll shift to a subscription model or something similar in the future, and just want to get a rush of fans to the site with this offer. We’ll see.

We love Stargate because it fits with our storytelling: Alien beings with wondrous technology that are consumed by their god complex.

Don’t worry, we won’t suddenly turn it all into an Ancient Aliens in Greek Togas theme. But Stargate has influenced a lot of our tales.

  • Technology that has created mythological details. Like the sarcophagus that restores human bodies indefinitely, or the teleporters that seem to be a beam of light from the heavens.
  • Clever people solving problems in bizarre situations.
  • Women that are both feminine and witty, saving their friends as much as they end up saving them back.
  • Beings so consumed by megalomania that they think themselves as gods.
  • Followers blinded by the aforementioned gods’ powers that fanatically preach their teachings and kill in their name.

The series has become convoluted and messy, as all long-running sci-fi seems to have. Thankfully, io9 has compiled a guide that will get you up to speed or simply remind you of the important bits.

Sample Chapter: Girl Gone Nova

Image Credit Vitaliy Raskalov/Vadim Mahorov/Marat Dupri. Check out their daring and illegal climb atop the pyramid.

Sample Chapter

Guillermo rubbed his temples. Hard.
“You can’t just take ‘a pyramid.’”
Kyveli scoffed. “Why not? You have three of them.”
Guillermo breathed in deep. It was surprisingly chilly for being in a desert. “Because… It is an ancient monument to a Pharaoh, a tomb, actually. It has stood there for about three thousand years.”
The Teddy Bear held up a ridiculously tall parasol that only covered her from the sun, leaving him out to get a tan.
Kyveli tilted her head. “A Pharaoh?”
“Yes. Royalty. Like you, actually. You wouldn’t want someone to show up after eons and just pick up your tomb as if it was a vacation souvenir now, would you?”
She opened her pretty mouth to speak.
“Yes,” he interrupted. “I know, there won’t be a tomb left. There won’t even be a solar system left. But you know what I mean.”
Kyveli turned back to the magnificent view from atop the pyramid. Her eyes glinted as they darted around. Translucent images appeared in her field of view, and Guillermo was shocked to realise that she was actually looking up information on the Pharaohs. The ship’s Mind digested the volumes of data and gave her the highlights that it knew she’d like.
He let her take it all in.
He stood in silence, watching her. How would the Ancient Egyptians react to a visit from her? He had no doubt in his mind that she’d fit in nicely right next to Nefertiti and Cleopatra. Delicate features, thin fingers, red skin like velvet. Throw in one of those characteristic Egyptian crowns that frame the entire head and she’s a Queen now.
Worshipped by trillions.
The mind doesn’t just boggle, it shuts down completely. Guillermo tried to imagine what that actually meant. And he was no novice either, he had stood next to kings as they addressed crowds beneath them.
He spun around to watch the desert. Trillions of souls. What had they called them? Panhuman species, variations on the same theme and archetype of two hands, two feet, standing upright, across the stars. Like grains of sand.
Grains of sand at her feet.
Yes, that was the only analogy Guillermo’s brain could come up with to make the comparison.
He snorted at his thoughts. He was under the mistaken impression that the humans of today seemed somehow more advanced than the Egyptians were. But the difference of two thousand years of science was negligible next to the Ekrignontes. He squinted up at the shiny orb in the sky that called itself a silly name and had a silly Teddy Bear avatar and had the power to slice Jupiter up like an orange.
Humans were just playing with rocks, stacking them pretty.
Kyveli gestured and dismissed the AR data.
He smiled back at her.
“So I can’t take one? Not even the little one?” She pointed hesitantly at the smaller pyramid of the three and gave him the puppy eyes.
To force himself away from the urge to please her was like scratching a sunburn.
“No.”

Binge-Worthy Reads: This is Your Chance to Board the Starship JJ Green

I love a good space story. And there’s nothing better than J.J. Green’s series, Shadows of the Void.

Starbound is the prequel to the fast-paced, action-packed Shadows of the Void space opera serial.

Being a Martian isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Jas Harrington was only a baby when a massive fire at a fledging Martian colony took the lives of everyone close to her. After growing up in institutions on Mars and Earth, Jas travels to Antarctica to train as a deep space security operative.

All she wants is to graduate college and fulfill her dreams, but it isn’t long before she faces familiar prejudice against returned colonists.

For once, fighting her way out of her problems isn’t an option, until it is.

Starbound is the prequel to the fast-paced, action-packed Shadows of the Void space opera serial.

“Great story! Whether a first-time reader, or one experienced in this series, a must read!”

“…more than a couple of surprises that come your way when you least expect it.”

“I loved the characters, and the plot dragged you right into it.”

“Very well done, a great read.”

“Can’t wait to start the next book.”
