Ursa Steel

MARCH 30, 2024

Ursa Steel is a collection of three stories in a distant future where humanity's military complex and space exploration has flourished.

In "Harvest Death," witness the horrors of war as infantry clash with a savage alien race during an invasion of their planet. In "Cauldron Quarry," join the exploits of a Mech crew known as the Mud Wolves as they fight on various planets and encounter something unexpected during their latest contract. And in "Warrior First," follow a solo pilot's daring escape after he's forced to eject from his Mech and be hunted by those who outnumber and outgun him.

Whatever your taste of adventure may be, Ursa Steel is sure to appease your thirst for sci-fi action, thrills, and a camaraderie we can only aspire to be a part of.
