Fire and Forget (Time Wing Six Book 1) – Synopsis
The artifact is a perfect cube, two inches on a side. Extraordinarily heavy, it is as clear as flawless diamond. It is also cooler than room temperature, and — upon contact — whispers plaintive alien voices.
I hope you’re wide awake right now.
Your science teachers lied to you. Perhaps that’s too strong a verb. Well, you should at least know there’s a reason they blew off your questions about time travel. Remember? (Or maybe you’re not supposed to remember.)
Fact: the U.S. Military has operated Time Expeditionary Units since the Summer of 1972.
So, why care now? The news isn’t on Facebook. Twitter’s completely missed it. Yet, as recently as yesterday, one unit of the Time Travel Forces has discovered aliens right here in our solar system’s deep past.
Daryle Chantree is a technician with clearance to work on a synthetic time abyss. Here, the future and past exist in carefully matched slabs of ancient stone that predate Earth by more than three billion years.
When the aliens attack, Daryle takes emergency action and commits an untrained team to the high-stakes fight of their lives. His second mistake? Why the hell did he so much as consider tagging along for the ride?
As the situation intensifies, Daryle realizes that the study of the universe and the study of consciousness may be irreversibly linked. Meanwhile, these powerful aliens are capable of altering reality by playing with the universe’s underlying code.
Why not skip the medical exams, written tests, and skill assessments and come along for the ride? We’re talking about countering a threat to humanity’s existence. Don’t you have an obligation? A duty to act?
Open this book and illumination will swell. Images will unlock. Concepts will untangle and mushroom. Mind racing, you’ll be thrown into a desperate time excursion deep in the past! Alien artifacts. An asteroid belt full of secrets. Are you strapped in and ready for an edge-of-your-seat, high-voltage, razor-sharp military thriller? Ready to sign on the dotted line?
From the author of Many Moons, Lesser Beings, and Cross the Sky.

About the Author
Scott Azmus enlisted in the Navy as an Interior-Communications Electrician. After receiving a scholarship and graduating from ROTC at the University of Colorado (Boulder), he was Communications Officer and Gunnery Officer in USS Leftwich (DD 984) and Navigator and Legal Officer in USS Ingersoll (DD 990). While a reserve officer, he was Executive Officer in USS Worden (CG 18) and Operations Officer for a Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit (MIUWU 213). Since then, he has been a deep-ocean navigator, field geologist, bookseller, and advanced-placement physics teacher.
His short fiction first appeared in Aboriginal Science Fiction Magazine and Writer’s of the Future, where author Dave Wolverton found his writing “… reminiscent of the fine tales of Ray Bradbury or Zenna Henderson.” When not writing high-stakes, action-packed science fiction, with an emphasis on appealing characters and imagination, Scott has a passion for beekeeping, public-outreach astronomy, and cultural experience via world travel.
He and his wife have three grown children and make their home in S.E. Wisconsin with two extraordinary Alaskan Malamutes and a goofy Great Pyrenees. His characters are clever and fearless and actually live in alternate universes all their own. Fire and Forget is his sixth novel.
