Women in Wars of the Future
By: William Gabriel
About the Book
Four centuries from now mankind will have expanded into the Solar System with the most adventurous and capable of society. Our world of twelve billion people will have their best and brightest reach for the planets. By this time nearly two million people will live and develop the colonies of outer space. An Earth bound power has built their first warship to ply the planets and establish hegemony where ever they travel. Earth bound politics rears its ugly head in interplanetary conflicts between this rising power and the more established national powers in space.
Into this maelstrom three heroines must face off against this new menace launched from Earth. The planetary system is self sufficient, yet very fragile when confronted by military might. As civilians caught in the crossfire of political infighting, they must use all their wits and abilities to survive the presence of that warship’s maiden voyage. These women prove their metal in the high stakes game of military confrontation and intrigue. Theirs is a world of mercantile uplift while they must now face the forceful onslaught of this new space power.
Most technologies portrayed within this work are already developed or on the drawing board and will be part of mankind’s future in space. Only a couple are not yet within our grasp, yet would be stepping stones to interstellar travel at faster than light. The three heroines each are well versed in survival in space and have carved out their own entrepreneurial niche to gain wealth and return to Earth with millions in today’s currency. The planets hold near infinite wealth to be exploited in the 25th century. This is the new world in which they live.
