THE THIRD EARTH: THE BETA-EARTH CHRONICLES, BOOK 5 by Wesley Britton (COMING FALL 2016)

For twenty years, Dr. Malcolm Renbourn and Tribe Renbourn faced adventure
after adventure, struggle after struggle on Beta-Earth.

Now, Renbourn and five of his Betan wives are forced to cross the
multi-verse once again, this time to the strange world called Cerapin-Earth.
After startling and frightening physical transformations, the altered
Renbourns meet two new kinds of humanity. One is the dominant pairs who are
able to share thoughts and sensations at the same time. The other are the
nams, single-bodied people the pairs deem defective mono-minds. As a result,
nams are exiled from the overpopulated cities of pyramid hives.

Tribe Renbourn must join the outcasts and teach them they are as worthy of
love and acceptance as any unkind pair. But helping the nams learn how to
stand up for themselves ultimately leads to a catastrophic war. At the same
time, Cerapin scientists plan another multi-versal jump that must also end
in a costly catastrophe. Along the way, two sexy spies complicate
everything.

On a world where technology is worshiped like a religion, how can the nam
rebels overcome the superior armaments of the pairs using primitive
weaponry? While this conflict brews, Tribe Renbourn explores what it means
to be human in ways they never expected. Will their epic end like it began,
forced to sacrifice themselves to save a doomed city?

Coming soon. Preorder for $4.95.

A THRONE FOR AN ALIEN: THE BETA-EARTH CHRONICLES, BOOK 4 by Wesley Britton

Wes Britton’s sci-fi series, The Beta-Earth Chronicles, orbits in a realm light years away from Star Trek or Star Wars.

The Blind Alien (Book 1) followed Malcolm Renbourn, a man from our world, unwittingly transferred to a parallel Earth and forced to adapt to new cultures and a new language while coming to grips with the loss of his sight. In The Blood of Balnakin (Book 2), Tribe Renbourn traveled to a new continent, where even stranger adventures awaited. The story continued in When War Returns (Book 3), where Renbourn and his wives clashed with a throne, a church, assassins, and scientist-spies.

Everything changes in A Throne for an Alien (Book 4). Once again, Tribe Renbourn is on the run, but this time they’re not alone. Fleeing the outbreak of war in the country of Alma, a fleet of ships follows them, as hundreds of exiles seek sanctuary.

Landing at the country of Hitalec, the Renbourns learn prophecy has foretold that this island will be their new home, but once again, a throne complicates everything. A dying Queen insists that Malcolm bond with one of her daughters to connect her people with the new settlers. After her death, a new Queen and her lover seek to make the Renbourns pawns in their militaristic power grabs that boil into an ultimate confrontation.

Can one Renbourn wife team with the head of the Collective to give Beta-Earth the cure to the ancient Plague-With-No-Name before their lives upturn in a final showdown?

WHEN WAR RETURNS: THE BETA EARTH CHRONICLES, BOOK THREE (E-BOOK VERSION) by Dr. Wesley Britton

Wes Britton’s sci-fi series, The Beta-Earth Chronicles, takes you to a world you never experienced in Star Trek or Star Wars.

The Blind Alien (Book 1) followed Malcolm Renbourn, a man from our world, unwittingly transferred to a parallel Earth and forced to adapt to new cultures and a new language while coming to grips with the loss of his sight. In The Blood of Balnakin (Book 2), Tribe Renbourn traveled to a new continent, where even stranger adventures awaited Renbourn and his new family on land and sea, as mystical prophecies were fulfilled.

The story continues in When War Returns, where everything changes for Renbourn and his Betan wives. To secure protection from assassins, the scientist-spies of the Collective, and the anger of an island liege, he accepts the title of Duce of Bilan and joins the Parliament of Alma. He bonds with a female Ducei, but unhappily discovers that she is Sasperia Thorwaif, an enhanced mutant with the startling strength of ten men and an overheated metabolism that fuels her resentment against lesser-endowed humans. As a result, she begins a campaign to destroy the Renbourn tribe.

Tribe Renbourn is also drawn into a brewing war against the Lunta of the New-Dome, a High Priestess wanting to force all Almans and immigrants to bow in obedience and conform to her strict religious orthodoxy. When the Prince of Alma, heir to the throne, wants to add a Renbourn wife to his long list of women forced to surrender themselves to his royal will, the foundations of their lives on Beta-Earth are shaken.
Can Tribe Renbourn battle a church, a throne, and a bond-wife bent on tearing them apart?

THE BLIND ALIEN: THE BETA EARTH CHRONICLES, BOOK ONE (E-BOOK VERSION) by Dr. Wesley Britton

What could happen to a man dragged to an alternate Earth, blinded, held captive, and blamed for a disaster that threatens their world’s existence?

Journey into a strange story told strangely. Imagine plunging into a world dominated by women, where females desire you only for your biological profile and subject you to mysterious experiments that test the outer limits of your reality.

From the mind of Dr. Wesley Britton, science fiction morphs into terrifying truth for Dr. Malcolm Renbourn, a young history teacher, when he walks into an ordinary bank on an ordinary day. Suddenly, he feels pain, and unexpectedly, he loses his sight and discovers he has been drawn against his will across the multi-verse to Balnakin, a slave-holding country on a parallel Beta-Earth, where he becomes the focal point in the hotbed of a plague that kills three out of four male babies their first year. He doesn’t understand a single word of their dialect, but he comprehends that his biology may contain the cure for their curse. Branded their property, he must escape, but where can a desperate blind man in a strange world dominated by women run?

“. . . a story with a highly original concept, fascinating characters and not-too-subtle but truthful allegories. Don’t let the sci-fi label or alternate Earth setting fool you. This is a compelling and contemporarily relevant story about race, sex, and social classes.” -Raymond Benson, former James Bond novelist and author of the Black Stiletto books

“I’ve not read a book like this before, full of alternative perspectives, excellent characterization, plots, emotional turmoil, and torment . . . the plot and dialogue are densely packed with ideas and the unique structure of the plot transport the reader to this new world. Dr Britton has successfully created a parallel world; something that many sci-fi books fail miserably at. Well worth the read!” -Robert Cole, author The Ego Cluster

“An excellent work that hearkens back to the classics of Asimov and Heinlein . . . each of the characters are fully developed and well defined and being able to hear their thoughts about each encounter brings a richness to the narratives. Politics, religion, social mores and relationships are all examined from both without and within. Think Stranger in a Strange Land combined with Foundation and you may begin to get an idea of the scope and quality of this adventure.” -Dave Massengale, Amazon review

“The book explores science, medicine, commerce, education, spiritual life, family life, and sex on an alternative planet, which, at times, is insightful and hilarious in its comparison to our own Earth. In an ingenious way, Dr. Britton has created a new grammar and vocabulary to continually intrigue the reader. A true winner!” -Bobbi Chertok, Amazon Review

“This is the first book of a series, where Robinson Crusoe meets Fringe in a parallel universe . . . Dr. Wesley Britton is a natural born storyteller, who has worked so much on his craft that it seems effortless.” -Amanda Spark, author of Janus Quadrifrons
