Space Rogues – A Science Fiction Adventure: The Epic Adventures of Wil Calder, Space Smuggler
by John Wilker
Genre: Science Fiction/Action Adventure/Space Opera
What happens when your experimental spacecraft breaks down near Neptune? Dying alone in space is the likely answer, right?
That’s not how Wil Calder’s story ends though; it’s how it begins. Alien space outlaws rescue him and sell his pod for scrap.
He’s given a choice: join the crew or step out the airlock without his spacesuit. Not great choices, right?
Now, years later, Wil is a lonely intergalactic outlaw and smuggler, looking for a crew.
Because space is lonely and boring, Wil could use some friends or at least people to work with, maybe boss around a little.
Before Wil can even enjoy having a crew to call his own, they find themselves in the center of a plot to start an intergalactic war.
A plot they aren’t remotely qualified to stop, but who looks at qualifications these days?
Between epic space battles, a quest for redemption and a daring heist, the crew uncovers a dangerous secret.
A secret that they can’t let stay hidden; too many worlds hang in the balance.

“Who the fuck are you? And what have you done with Edward?” Harry said. “Seriously, man, what’s the matter with you?” It was funny to hear someone say exactly what I’d been thinking, along with everyone else around the table. The rest of us were just too polite to say anything out loud.
“You’re not funny, Harry,” Edward said, an edge to his voice.
“Neither are you, man. I mean, I know you nearly died, but shit . . . really? Oh, Serena asked after you the other day. I passed on your number.” He necked what was left of his pint and stood to leave.
My cheeks heated with embarrassment as all eyes swivelled away from Harry towards me, a uniform look of horror on their faces. Only Edward appeared confused. “She’s the girl you shagged at Julian and Victoria’s wedding,” I supplied, before finishing my own drink, then standing and pulling on my jacket.
Born in London, Isobel Hart’s childhood was spent in the Middle East before being sent to boarding school. Suffice to say, she read a lot of books. Now based in the UK, she writes about what she knows – real English women, with flaws.
A romantic at heart, happily married for twenty years, her novels focus on relationships – good and bad – and the women at the heart of them. She is ever hopeful others will find their happy-ever-afters or Happy-For-Nows too.
To date Isobel has published four contemporary romance novels
What Goes Around Comes Around – Part 1 of Lily’s Story
Full Circle – Part 2 of Lily’s Story
Cold Comfort – Part 1 of Cold Comfort
Still Life is Isobel’s first foray into sci-fi / dystopian – but still with a hefty helping of romance.
