Product Description EditTHE LONG AWAITED ANTHOLOGY, THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE COLONEL LANDRY SERIES ARE FINALLY TOGETHER IN ONE BOOK!FERAL PLANETThis novel is the "flagship" of the Colonel Landry Space Adventure Series. It is the 25th Century. The space cruiser Beagle, under command of Colonel Kendrick Landry, explores a planet ravaged by war millennia ago, now inhabited by hostile savage humanoids. The Beagle is shot down and grounded by an ancient, mechanized planetary defense network created by an advanced civilization long pre-dating the humanoid savages. The humanoids abduct two women officers: the sexy and sultry Maya Terrazone and the bright but petulant Veronica Winters. Landry leads a rescue party to find and rescue the two women. But even if the Beagle crew make repairs and regain orbit around the planet, then the ancient planetary defense network may fire upon them a second--and likely fatal--final time.DOME OF SLAVERYThe starcraft Aurora travels to planet Alpha Centauri B-III where Colonel Landry discovers that descendants from the colonization crew of Green Horizon, Earths first interstellar starcraft, are living in centuries-old enslavement to a lizard-like race. Head-strong Major Will Adams provokes an attack by the lizard command to justify a retaliatory pre-emptive strike.The lizards attack with surprisingly devastating force. Now the command and crew of the Aurora will be lucky to ensure their own survival--let alone assist in liberation of the lizards human slaves.FINAL BATTLEOn the far off Earth colonial planet of Sirius V, settled long ago by North Americans and Europeans on a Western continent and by radical religious zealots from Earths Middle East on an Eastern continent, a final showdown is about to occur.

As it turns out, the hidden base is on the other side of a dimensional portal in an alternate world. Colonel Landry takes the fight there along with forces led by military leader Colonel Leonard Goldstein.IN SEARCH OF KRONOSA tight and intricate tale of postwar peoples obsessed with finding an elusive, mythical master entity called "Kronos"-- a hybrid of man and computer which is seen as the solution to lifes problems.

The missions ulterior motive is to determine once and for all whether Kronos really exists or was only a wartime myth.
