Ten years ago, they were so few and feeble as only to excite universal contempt; now they number in their ranks, hundreds of thousands of people. Then, they had only one or two presses to plead your cause; now they have multitudes. They are scattering all over the land their newspapers, books, pamphlets, tracts, and other publications, to hold up to infamy the conduct of your oppressors, and to awaken sympathy in your behalf. They are continually holding anti-slavery meetings in all parts of the free States, to tell the people the story of your wrongs. Wonderful has been the change effected in public feeling, under God, through their instrumentality.
Do not fear that they will grow weary in your service. They are confident of success, in the end. They know that the Lord Almighty is with them—that truth, justice, right, are wirh them—that you are with them. They know, too, that your masters are cowardly and weak, through conscious wrong doing, and already begin to falter in their course. Lift up your heads, O ye despairing slaves! Yet a little while, and your chains shall snap asunder, and you shall be tortured and plundered no more!
Then, fathers and mothers, your children shall be yours, to bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Then, brothers and sisters, you shall be sold to the remorseless slave speculator no more, but dwell together in unity. You'll find more excerpts in my old website Herbert's World.

Also, take a look at my second blog Herbert Grosshans, where I talk about fun-stuff and things that concern me. Tuesday, June 04, Release of Savanna. It is now available from the following outlets:. Jeremy Sheppard, a newly appointed Captain of the Solar Space Force to the military outpost and Dennis Collins, a civilian, must join forces to thwart a conspiracy to control the Star portal. Only one road ran from the outpost to Crystal City. It was nothing more than dirt and not well maintained.
Sheppard was happy to be safe inside an armored vehicle as they rolled across the rocky and pitted surface. He imagined the road would not be in a good condition after a heavy rainfall.
Looking out of the window at the landscape and the sky, it was difficult to accept he was on an alien planet. Savanna was much like Earth, starting with the vegetation, the soil, the color of the sky, and even the gravity. Not all planets humans tried to colonize were this ideal. Some were outright unpleasant, and yet, humans attempted to tame them and make them livable.
Of course, there were penalties to be paid. Instead of the planet changing, humans changed. Subjected to harmful radiation, humans adapted, genes mutated, and the results were not always desirable. He remembered spending time on Deadrock, aptly named for the number of settlers who died after one of the early colonization ships crashed on a planet never designed for humans.
Most of them died during the first years, but some survived. They worked the land, they built homes, and they adapted. Their descendants changed inside and outside. When this lost colony was finally found, the humans living on it were barely recognizable as humans. They were more alien than some of the real alien races. His chuckle sounded almost amused. One of the two troopers sitting behind Sheppard laughed.
After being here for as long as some of us have been, you will realize what seemed so nice is nothing but a variation of hell. No assignments, no promotions, no action. The only excitement we get is when someone new, like you, joins us. Have you ever read the fine print? I for one am not willing to do that. No special rank. Never made it.

Nobody gives a crap about rank here anymore. You must have made an impression on the Colonel. It usually takes him awhile to trust newcomers enough to make them part of an important assignment like this. He has his own demons to fight, like most of us. A long holiday, Captain Lilli-white. Sheppard stayed silent. They were only having a little fun at his expense. That would really be a form of hell.

A star cluster in the constellation of Orion rotates once every thousand years. Those who rule there have an ancient tradition: When each cycle ends, they train their fleets by spilling the blood of lesser beings. The enemy fleets are coming again.
Chains of Destiny
In response, the Rebel Worlds gather their starships to face the terrifying threat, and this time humanity is asked to stand with them. We repelled the Swarm - for now. But they won't stop: They're inhuman. They have no inhibitions. No conscience. And no mercy. But from the crucible of battle has risen an unlikely hero. Captain Timothy Granger, at the helm of another time-tested battleship, will take the fight to the enemy.
He'll discover their secrets. Find their homeworld. Destroy it before they destroy ours. He will save us all. He must. Or we'll die. In the 20th century Earth sent probes, transmissions, and welcoming messages to the stars. Unfortunately, someone noticed. The Galactics arrived with their battle fleet in Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined their vast Empire.
Swearing allegiance to our distant alien overlords wasn't the only requirement for survival. We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers They're all gone.
