MEET JASPER T. SCOTT
Hey there, my name is Jasper Scott. I’m a USA Today bestselling author of science fiction, with twelve best-selling novels spread across two different series. My fans know me for writing books that mix action, mystery, and real human struggles against a backdrop of deeper themes. My books will entertain you, but they’ll also make you think, and to me that’s the power of science fiction: the whole genre is one giant thought experiment for the future. I hope you’ll join me on this journey of the mind to see what tomorrow holds, and along the way please feel free to reach out! I love connecting with my readers, and I answer every e-mail personally.

NEW FRONTIERS SERIES
THE NEW FRONTIERS SERIES BOOK 1
A MISSION TO ANOTHER WORLD COULD BE OUR ONLY HOPE…
The year is 2790 AD: with space elevators and giant orbital fleets hovering over Earth, open war looks inevitable, and people are anxious to get away.
The lines are drawn, with the Confederacy in the East, and the First World Alliance in the West. In hopes of finding a refuge from the looming war, the Alliance is sending Captain Alexander de Leon to explore an Earth-type planet, code-named Wonderland, but at the last minute before launch, a Confederate fleet leaves orbit on a trajectory that threatens both the mission and Alliance sovereignty. The resulting power struggle will determine not only the fate of Alexander's mission, but the fate of the entire human race.
THE NEW FRONTIERS SERIES BOOK 2
PEACE ON EARTH BROUGHT A WAR FROM SPACE
Thirty years after The Last War, Admiral Alexander is back in the Navy. Soon after taking command of an aging battleship, he intercepts an unidentified comm transmission over the dark side of the Moon. It's a dire warning and a threat from an old Confederate Captain, but no demands were made, and this old enemy doesn't look or sound entirely human.
THE NEW FRONTIERS SERIES BOOK 3
THIS INTERSTELLAR VOYAGE MIGHT BE OUR LAST
With androids in control of Earth, and humans relegated to colonies on Mars and the outer planets, tensions are rising, and war looks inevitable. Looking for a way to escape the looming conflict, Alexander and Catalina de Leon board the Liberty with 70,000 other colonists on a voyage to Proxima Centauri, but it’s going to take them nine years to reach their destination, and a lot can happen in that time. As the trip progresses, everything that can happen does, and what was meant to be a monotonous voyage becomes a fight for survival against mysterious forces that threaten not only the passengers and crew, but the entire human race.

Ethan Ortane has just met his long lost son, Atton, but the circumstances could have been better.

They need reinforcements to face Brondi, but beyond Dark Space, the comm relays are down, and they are low on fuel.

DARK SPACE: ORIGIN
THE DARK SPACE SERIES BOOK 3
THE DEFIANT IS STRANDED
Ethan and his son, Atton, have been arrested for high treason and conspiracy, crimes which will surely mean the death sentence, but it’s beginning to look like theirs aren't the only lives in jeopardy—the Defiant is stranded in Sythian Space, and the vessel which Commander Caldin sent to get help has used all its fuel to get to Obsidian Station, only to find out that the station has been destroyed. Now the Defiant’s last hope for a rescue is gone, and everyone on board is about to die a cold, dark death.
HUMANS ARE STILL FIGHTING EACH OTHER
Meanwhile, the notorious crime lord, Alec Brondi, is plotting to capture the remnants of Admiral Hoff’s fleet, just as he captured the Valiant, but Hoff’s men are on to him, and Brondi is about to get a lot more than he bargained for, forcing him to flee to the one place he knows will be safe—Dark Space.

Desperate to escape, these few chase rumors of a lost sector of humanity and end up on Avilon, a planet covered with a vast, kilometers-high city that lies hidden and shielded from the rest of the galaxy by its impossibly advanced technology and its benevolent ruler–Omnius, the Artificial Intelligence who would be god to his human creators.

Eight years ago they left the Etherian Empire aboard the Astralis with three hundred million scientists to learn the true nature of the universe, but now Astralis is surrounded by a hostile race of alien slavers, called the Faros, while the Inquisitor’s crew has been forced to abandon ship and flee to parts unknown.

DEATH IS THE ONLY WAY OUT
Astralis is surrounded. The lost Etherian fleet has arrived with old friends at the helm, but the Faros are there, too, and they're demanding we give them the lost fleet, or else.
Lucien Ortane is determined to fight, while everyone else fears defeat and wants to negotiate. The future of humanity and countless other species hangs in the balance, but they are badly outnumbered–a million to one. If war breaks out, the Faros will win, and trillions of people will be killed or enslaved. There is only one path to victory, but will Lucien have the courage to take it?
BOOKS BY JASPER T. SCOTT
Kieran Hawker is a junior prospector on the frontier of civilized space, just trying to escape from all the things that weigh him down: his father’s death, his brother’s enviable success, and his best friend, Jilly’s, indifference to his long-standing romantic feelings for her.
At just the right time he catches a lucky break, finding a tetrillium-rich rock in an uncharted belt, but everything is not as it seems, and when he goes in for a closer look, he discovers a secret Union facility and space gate. The station is in a security lockdown and the sole apparent occupant, a Union captain, offers Kieran an entire ship if he can disable the lockdown. Kieran realizes that he’s probably dealing with a criminal, rather than an actual captain, but he’s just desperate enough to accept. He flies out to the nearest station and returns with a slicer and some dangerous-looking backup. As he’s making his approach to the station, Kieran hears a garbled cry for help over the comm. He hopes it’s just his imagination.
MRYTHDOM: GAME OF TIME

The decaying ruins of cities are everywhere, tucked neatly between vast tracts of unfamiliar land. Whatever wiped out humanity, reformed the face of Meridia, too.
