The latest installment of the escapades of space explorers Brad Lansky and Alex John is now out, available from Protophonic Productions. Brad Lansky and the Result War by writer J.D. Venne picks up where Rogue Era left off, answering a lot of questions and opening up a few more.
Earth is in an elliptical orbit following a rogue planet’s near miss of only a few thousand kilometers, nudging our planet inward toward the Sun and much closer to Venus. The harsh environment arising from extreme weather changes, unbearably cold winters and insufferable heat during the summers, has humanity looking for answers from the G.A.I.A. (General Artificial Intelligence Assembly), a collective of A.I.’s throughout the Sol System.
After it is discovered that someone is hacking and manipulating the mind of off-grid human friend Dr. Brinn Diaz, Brad and Alex find themselves at an outpost in Antarctica facing alien lifeforms they’ve never encountered before and embroiled in a mystery that could change humanity forever.
