The Ephialtes Trilogy chronicles the conflict between Earth and Mars, triggered by Mars’ secession from the USAN in the aftermath of World War IV. The stories of The Ephialtes Shorts Collection make up the connective tissue between books one and two of the trilogy. The collection comprises all four previously released shorts together with the exclusive Ephialtes Short V: Why Am I So Clever?
“Parker’s writing is as highly political and war-ready as space wars fans would expect, as well as following its genre’s classic touches with a lot of space tech details that sci-fi readers will enjoy. He clearly has a very intimate knowledge of his creations, and has furnished all possible elements of this world thoroughly and with passion. The Ephialtes Shorts Collection is a highly interesting and entertaining addition to the Ephialtes universe.”
