That’s right, Adam’s forty-seven-year-old bones have once again been run through the ringer, this time with the assistance of a conniving Human named Copernicus Smith.
Coop–as he’s called–runs a starship repair and towing service, catering to the underbelly of galactic commerce–smugglers, gun-runners and others who want to get their products from Point A to Point B without government interference.
Adam’s alien friends Kaylor and Jym work for Coop, and now they’ve been ‘detained’ by a small stellar affiliation. Adam and Riyad come to their assistance, only to be ensnared in Coop’s shady dealings themselves. What follows is a whirlwind adventure of galactic intrigue and political maneuverings, with dinosaur fights, clashes with smuggler cartels, along with some old enemies–including the Juireans–determined to make Adam and Riyad pay for past indiscretions.
Having just saved the galaxy from the Sol-Kor threat you would think our heroes would be in for a little R&R? No such luck. It’s never boring being Adam Cain….
The Copernicus Deception is now available in ebook form exclusively through Amazon.
UPDATE: July 30, 2016
The next book I’m working on is the second volume of the Agent to the Stars series, featuring real estate broker and space adventurer Jason King. The book should be out toward the end of September, 2016.
In preparation, pick up Vol. #1: The Enclaves of Sylox. It’s fun, light and thought-provoking. This could really happen!
This story is somewhat different from my Human Chronicles books, yet also very similar, if that makes any sense? It’s still a space opera adventure dealing with Human interaction with alien civilizations and empires. Yet this story revolves around the activities of a hot-shot real estate broker working on the planet Sylox, the capital of the Galactic Union. Of course, Jason is much more than just a money-grubbing opportunist. He’s also a former Army Ranger with a set of deadly skills which come in handy in the second part of the book.
Essentially The Enclaves of Sylox is a mystery, however, it’s more of a ‘who’s behind it’ rather than a ‘who dun it’ type of mystery. There’s layer upon layer of conspiracy involving a quasi-religious artifact, whose theft is about to trigger a galactic war. The Earth has also become ensnared in this conspiracy, placing her squarely in the sights of two vindictive alien species bent on our destruction. Now all Jason King has to do is recover the artifact, capture the thief, prevent a galaxy-wide war and save the Earth from annihilation. And do all this between his real estate closings. Oh, and there’s also a super-hot woman right in the thick of things, of course, just to make it interesting. Plus chases through star systems, and shoot-outs, and fist-fights — you know, all the normal stuff I like to put in my books.
The other noticeable feature about this new book is the humor. A lot of my readers really enjoy the street-wise, genuinely-Human type of humor throughout The Human Chronicles books. In The Enclaves of Sylox, I took off the restraints. It’s much more prevalent in this new book/series, yet it’s observational humor, not slapstick. After all, Humans do have a funny way of looking at aliens, and we’re not afraid to express our opinions. But let’s face it, most aliens are basically pretty goofy. Right?
Just remember, my loyal readers: This is NOT another Adam Cain book. (For those of you needing an Adam Cain fix…I now have 15 Human Chronicles books available! This is a Jason King book. And although you will find some subtle — as well as some not so subtle — references and tie-ins to my other series, this one is a story unto itself. After all, how many space opera heroes have you seen who are real estate brokers? I’d hazard a guess that Jason King is the first.
The Enclaves of Sylox on Amazon.com … now available!
And also remember: I write fun and light sci-fi adventures. I’m not trying to provide any major social commentary or predict a dire future for mankind as a result of the poor decisions we’ve made in the past. In fact, I’m a pretty big fan of Humanity. That’s why in my books it’s the Humans who out in the galaxy kicking-ass and taking names, and not some obscure mold spore enslaving the entire race. After all, let’s get real. We ARE bad-asses!
That’s right. Book #14 in The Human Chronicles Saga is now available on Amazon.com.
Battlelines picks up right where A Clash of Aliens ended, with our heroes scrambling to avoid a major attack on the homeworld of the Sol-Kor by the massive Hal’ic fleet, under the command of Admiral Andy Tobias. Humm, I wonder…will they make it or not?
Adam Cain #15 is also available. Entitled The Copernicus Deception, it’s another thrilling chapter in the adventures of Adam Cain and friends, and introduces a new character I hope you find interesting. His name is Copernicus Smith–a Human–who runs a starship repair and towing service in the Kidis Frontier. Two of his most famous–or infamous–employees are Kaylor and Jym, Adam’s two best alien buddies. The story picks up with Kaylor and Jym in trouble with local law enforcement and Copernicus enlisting the help of Adam and Riyad to set things straight.
Needless to say, not everything turns out as expected. Now our heroes are engaged in a conspiracy of galactic proportions–literally–fighting against not only the resurgent Juireans, but also two of the most powerful corporations in the Milky Way, the makers of the MK flash weapons and the Xan-fi rifles. And you thought galactic empires had clout? Wait until you see what the business leaders can do!
My fans have demanded it, so you’re getting it. More books, more often. You keep reading, I’ll keep writing.

But not only that, so is Battlelines, the 14th edition in the saga.
But now let’s talk about A Clash of Aliens.
When last we left our intrepid heroes…
Adam Cain had been taken captive by the new mutant queen of the flesh-eating Sol-Kor invaders, while his trusty sidekick Riyad Tarazi made it safely back to the Milky Way.
Now Riyad sets out on a desperate mission to rescue Adam. His task appears impossible, as Adam is being held in another universe cut off from our own. The only person who can help Riyad is the immortal mutant genius Panur…who’s disappeared somewhere in the galaxy with Adam’s daughter Lila. In his search of the mutant, Riyad enlists the help of Lila’s mother, the sensual Arieel Bol, along with the uninvited–yet always entertaining–Sherri Valentine.
Along the way, he picks up a menagerie of assorted characters, as he seeks to stay one step of galactic forces out to stop him at all costs. And those against him include both the Juireans…and the Humans! Neither wants to see a link between the two universes reestablished. To them, allowing Riyad to succeed would mean the deaths of untold trillions of innocent creatures.
In the meantime, Adam Cain isn’t sitting idle. He knows Riyad will risk his life–as well as the lives of another commando team–to attempt a rescue, and he can’t allow that to happen. But the only way to stop it is to escape on his own. To assist in his efforts, he stumbles upon a surprising ally, one that could spell the ultimate demise of the evil Sol-Kor race.
This is the ultimate Clash of Aliens, as enemies become friends and friends become enemies. And throughout it all, our heroes manage to keep the action,adventure…and humor going.
This is a classic space opera, as the adventures of Adam Cain and Gang continue.

When Earth Reigned Supreme is now available at Amazon.com!
Here’s a brief synopsis of the book:
With the Milky Way galaxy engaged in a life-or-death struggle against the evil Sol-Kor Colony, Adam Cain and Riyad Tarazi are made an offer they can’t refuse: Travel into another universe and assassinate the Queen of the Sol-Kor. If their mission succeeds, it could end the war with a single stroke, saving trillions upon trillions of innocent creatures from the ravenous, flesh-eating invaders.
Even though the prospects are good for a surprise strike against the Queen, it’s what happens afterwards that has the mission planners guessing. Yet regardless of their chances to make it back alive, the importance of the mission outweighs any personal considerations. This willingness for self-sacrifice is what creates heroes, so Adam and Riyad agree to lead a team of elite special forces into a strange universe they know very little about, and against the most-powerful being to ever exist.
Of course, that was before the Humans came along….
Needless to say, once the team makes the leap into the Sol-Kor universe, there’s no rest for the wicked. It’s non-stop action from beginning to end, requiring the reader to block out enough time to take it all in at once. This is why you read science fiction–for the pure, adrenaline-producing escapism. When Earth Reigned Supreme is your latest fix.
This is book #12 in The Human Chronicles Saga.
Books #13 through #15 are now available on Amazon.com.
T.R. (Tom) Harris is the author The Human Chronicles Saga series of books, an exciting tale of space adventure which was one of the bestselling science fiction series on Amazon in 2012.
Broken into two parts, Part One of the series consists of five books: The Fringe Worlds, Alien Assassin, The War of Pawns, The Tactics of Revenge and The Legend of Earth.
Part Two has begun with Cain’s Crusaders.
The second book of Part Two, The Apex Predator, is scheduled to be released in the winter of 2013.
What sets The Human Chronicles apart from other science fiction books on the market is the unique aspect of the storyline — namely that HUMANS are the Supermen in the galaxy.
As the hero of the series — ex-Navy SEAL Adam Cain — ventures further into the galaxy and jumps from one adventure to the next, he finds that he’s stronger, faster and more coordinated than just about every alien he encounters. And the fact that he’s been abducted from Earth has put Adam in a very bad mood. Now imagine Superman with a bad attitude, and you have some idea what Adam Cain can do to an unsuspecting universe. As the tagline for the series goes … Adam Cain is an Alien with an Attitude … and throughout his adventures, he makes the aliens pay for putting him in such a bad mood.
Definitely not for the faint-at-heart or the squeamish, The Human Chronicles Saga is a gritty look at the tougher side of Humanity. We are the dominate killers on our own planet — and out in space we’re just as deadly. Political correctness has no place in The Human Chronicles — even though a down-to-earth sense of humor does. This series will have you laughing and fist-pumping all the way through — and often crying out, “I can’t believe he just did that!”
Check out the entire series. It’s definitely a different take on the whole Aliens vs Humans theme. GO HUMANS!
