Numbercaste by Yudhanjaya Wijeratne
When Patrick Udo is offered a job at NumberCorp, he packs his bags and goes to the Valley. After all, the 2030s are a difficult time, and jobs are rare. Little does he know that he’s joining one of the most ambitious undertakings of his time or any other.
NumberCorp, crunching through vast amounts of social network data, is building a new society – one where everyone’s social circles are examined, their activities quantified, and their importance distilled into the all-powerful Number. A society where everyone and everything knows exactly how important you are.
As the world reacts to the Number, the questions start coming in. What would you do to build the perfect state? And how far is too far?

Exclusive Dark by Paul L Arvidson
IN THE STRANGE labyrinth of pipes on the planet called Dark, things are falling apart. Dun doesn’t want to be a hero, he just wants to find an answer to the terrifying dreams he’s been having. But the answers, the real answers, are going to take him places he’s never imagined and tear him from the only home he’s ever known.
With a half finished map from his missing father, an old friend, a new friend and the mysterious Myrch to guide him, he journeys through parts of his world he’s never imagined. Are his dreams real foretellings? Who can he trust to be who they say there are? What are the strange forces that seem to be literally pulling their world apart?
As he travels through a world that is much bigger than he thought it was, what he won’t know will kill him. And everyone he knows.
Preview Edge Of The Rings by Andria Stone
A captured clone trafficker leads Mark Warren and Axel Von Radach down a black hole of conspiracy, deceit and murder. They discover a triad of wealthy, cunning criminals bent on blowing Terra’s Space Program back to the dark ages.
To address this new threat, the military recalls Captain Warren with all the top experts, hoping to speed research capable of defeating their adversaries. Instead…a catastrophic explosion kills dozens of these world-famous scientists on the hallowed grounds of the military’s headquarters.
Terra and Mars again join forces to chase the outlaws halfway to Jupiter. On their homeworld, Warren and his friends battle drug lords, human-looking AIs, and an army of androids, all while in an extreme live or die rescue—for one of their own.
