Red Denver: A Prequel Short Story to The Hegemon Wars
It’s 2083 CE, ninety years after humankind nearly annihilated itself with nuclear weapons. Red Denver, one of several successful communities in Usona, post-Blast America, has thrived because of OldWorld machinery and a strong community government. With his past behind him, Reho has made a new life for himself here. That is until Soapy, a local crime boss, starts a chain of events that leads to a climatic final face-off between Reho and one of the genetically-modified warbeasts designed by the Hegemons, an alien race determined to see humankind go extinct.

Discovering that his fate will determine humanity’s final outcome in a war against the Hegemons.
