Fifteen of the best Indie authors. Fifteen extraordinary
stories. One bestselling universe.
It’s the Twenty-Second Century. The galaxy has opened up
to humanity as a hyperactive beehive of stargates and
new technologies, and we suddenly find ourselves in a
vast playground of different races, environments, and
cultures. There’s just one catch: we are pretty much at
the bottom of the food chain, and there’s only one way
for humanity to move up—by becoming mercenaries.
In every mercenary’s life, though, there comes a time
when things go wrong and even the best laid plans go
awry. When they do, though, the best mercs fall back and
work out new plans, and you can bet on one thing—hope is
not their strategy. Whether you’re a kid looking to get
off your planet, or an unarmed merc facing an
overwhelming force, or even the sole survivor of a
pirate attack, there’s always an edge—and it’s up to the
merc to find and exploit it!
Edited by bestselling authors and universe creators
Chris Kennedy and Mark Wandrey, “Hope is Not a Strategy”
includes all-new stories in the Four Horsemen universe
by some of the bestselling Indie authors currently in
the business. These authors take on various aspects of
the universe, giving you additional insight into a
galaxy that isn’t at war…but definitely isn’t at peace.
There’s only one thing for sure in the 4HU—anything’s
possible…for a fistful of credits!
