When an object from space threatens, it becomes clear that humanity needs to reach for the stars in order to survive. With just a few years warning, a race against time begins; to send a starship to a distant planet, where the remains of humanity can survive. Only a small number will be chosen, and among the contenders no one but the most resourceful will stand a chance. In an America turned authoritarian, a small group of dissidents draw up their plans to change not this world, but the next. The confrontation seems inevitable, but who will prevail, and at what cost? A world divided make their separate plans. In desperate times, humanity will show it's darker side, and even the best of intentions can result in the worst of outcomes. Will human ability for compassion and unity rise up, or succumb to fear and ruthlessness under pressure? And when the starship Exodus leaves for distant Aurora, more than 40 light years away, nobody expects this journey to end up answering some of humanity's greatest and oldest questions: Who are we? Are we alone? Where do we come from? This omnibus edition contains the complete Exodus Trilogy. 1. Exodus 2. Aurora 3. Genesis

On Aurora, humanity's final outpost is heading for disaster. In 2080, the starship Exodus left Earth, carrying some 1600 people, to give humanity a second chance. Now, in 2245, the colonists are trying to build a future on distant Aurora. But the doomed world that sent them on their long voyage had turned authoritarian and repressive, leading a small group to form a plan to let those sent on the Exodus choose a different path. While Kenneth Taylor struggles to accept his self-imposed silence even on the new world, Thomas Dunn is slowly subverting the colonial administration. Governor George Havelar, on the other hand, plans to make sure the mistakes of the past are not repeated as he proposes a radical plan for human expansion. In the north a simmering discontent is threatening to break up the unity of the human settlement on Aurora, and former scramjet pilot Tina Hammer realizes she cannot stay out of the conflict. Maria Solis, torn between loyalty to her father's faction and her own desires, is suddenly being forced into the conflict as she witnesses a terrible crime. With an entire planet to discover, tensions rise as opposing forces work their plans. While the leadership of the colony tries to affirm its control, others are working to regain lost liberties. Will humanity's final outpost survive the confrontation, or succumb to destruction? Aurora is the second installment of the Exodus Trilogy.

The starship Ariel is on a mission of the utmost secrecy, upon which the fate of thousands of lives depend. Though the ship is a mile long, its six crew are crammed into a space barely large enough for them to stand. Five are officers, geniuses in their field. The other is Will Kuno-Monet, the man responsible for single-handedly running a ship comprised of the most dangerous and delicate technology that mankind has ever devised. He is the Roboteer. Roboteer is a hard-SF novel set in a future in which the colonization of the stars has turned out to be anything but easy, and civilization on Earth has collapsed under the pressure of relentless mutual terrorism. Small human settlements cling to barely habitable planets. Without support from a home-world they have had to develop ways of life heavily dependent on robotics and genetic engineering. Then out of the ruins of Earth's once great empire, a new force arises - a world-spanning religion bent on the conversion of all mankind to its creed. It sends fleets of starships to reclaim the colonies. But the colonies don't want to be reclaimed. Mankind's first interstellar war begins. It is dirty, dangerous and hideously costly. Will is a man bred to interface with the robots that his home-world Galatea desperately needs to survive. He finds himself sent behind enemy lines to discover the secret of their newest weapon. What he discovers will transform their understanding of both science and civilization forever... but at a cost.
