Brings the Lightning by Peter Grant
When the Civil War ends, where can a former Confederate soldier go to escape the long memories of neighbors who supported the winning side?
Walt Ames, a former cavalryman with the First Virginia, is headed West with little more than a rifle, a revolver, and a pocket full of looted Yankee gold. But in his way stand bushwhackers, bluecoats, con men, and the ever-restless Indians. And perhaps most dangerous of all, even more dangerous than the cruel and unforgiving land, is the temptation of the woman whose face he can’t forget.
Rimworld: Stranded by J L Curtis
Senior Sergeant McDougal isn’t a combat troop, he’s a maintainer. He’s good at it, proud of his status, and on his first planetary detachment as the lead maintenance troop for an outpost.
But, when he gets stranded on a Rimworld that forms the DMZ between the Patrol and the Dragoons, his status doesn’t mean a thing…
Improvising, adapting, and trying like hell not to panic, he’s doing his best to fulfill the Patrol’s prime directive to destroy the portable stargate, and still get himself off the planet in one piece before the Dragoons get to him!
