Marcus Legend is a unique guy with a unique name and a unique past. As that past has shown, he also has a unique talent for turning good fortune into bad, and getting himself into deep trouble. When his fortune hits bottom, a psyche-reader by the name of Werner visits him in prison, where he's serving a 43-year sentence for his latest misadventure, and offers to change his life. Mars, Earth's most distant colony, has rebelled, and Earth's attempts to put down the rebellion have been crippled by an old psychological problem that first appeared years ago with the earliest manned probes to the outer planets. A new study is in place to finally examine and maybe solve the problem, and it needs a unique volunteer. Eventually, as Terran authorities manipulate Marcus into joining the war, he finds himself on his way to Mars at the helm of Earth's premier battleship, and with his own secret agenda. Constantly haunted by his past, his last chance at good fortune could make him a hero, or seal his unlucky fate for a final time.

About the Author:

Ken Doggett has been writing for years, mostly short stories published in various Science Fiction magazines, including Space & Time, Shayol, and Amazing Stories. Now he self publishes his own novels and short-story collections. Growing up in the sunny Southeastern U.S., he developed a love for reading right after he discovered the school library. He read almost everything, but was especially fascinated by the fantastic tales of spaceships, space exploration, and conflict among the stars. He eventually discovered writers who would become his favorites—Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, John W. Campbell, and later, Larry Niven and Harlan Ellison. He graduated from Avondale High School just outside Atlanta, and after a stint in the U.S. Army assigned to the 2nd Armored Division at Ft. Hood, Texas, he worked in the field of electronics and electronic technology. After a few years of reading all of those great Science Fiction stories, he decided to try his hand at writing some of his own, and placed his first published story, Timestopper, in the July 1981 issue of Amazing Stories. Eventually, with more of his stories reaching publication, he became a veteran writer in the Science Fiction genre. But he has done more in the arts than write a few stories. He once thought he could draw and paint pictures, and he created and sold a few landscape paintings, both oil and acrylic. He currently lives in a rural farming community in Morgan County, Georgia, where he now writes full time.
