The New Gobi Desert on planet New Colorado is hot-hot-hot, and when Major Joey Czerinski and his platoon are ordered there to check on Arthropodan spider military activity, Czerinski finds it hard to believe the spiders are just building a swimming pool. The spider commander is a royal pain in the rear, and Czerinski's cowboy diplomacy doesn't help the situation. Tit-for-tat one-upmanship escalates the conflict, making the DMZ explosive. A juvie militia leader rises from the dust to complicate things, and with Walmart, McDonald's, and chupacabra thrown into the mix, the absurdity never stops. Czerinski handles it all with his usual politically-incorrect aplomb in this fourth installment of the giggles-and-belly-laughs military space opera.

But things get out of hand as independence from all rulers - Galactic Federation or Arthropodan Empire - starts looking better and better to a combined insurgency made up of both spider and human rebels. Czerinski finds himself teaming with unusal allies to try and keep things under control as the politically-incorrect humor explodes in this fifth installment of the military space opera.

General Lopez returns once again to planet New Colorado with another top-secret mission for Colonel Joey R. Czerinki and his trusty (or not so trusty) legionnaires. A huge spaceship has been detected deep underground, right under the desert oasis of croc-infested Caldera Lake. Czerinski's task is to reach the ship and strip its technology before the Arthropodan Empire finds out what's going on. But as soon as the Legion arrives and starts digging around, the spiders come right behind to start their own tunneling. It's a race against absurdity and a battle of witlessness as the two teams squabble - while progress (Walmart, a couple casinos, Starbucks, and Taco Bell) pop up around them. Tourists, hearing of an ancient ark discovered deep beneath the sand, flock to Caldera Lake by the busloads, hoping to see this new wonder in the twelfth installment of the seriously silly science fiction space saga. Bonus story VAMPIRE IN THE OUTFIELD included at the end - first time in print!

Ex-Navy SEAL Robert O'Leary is about to go down in a self-destructive ball of flames. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, he lives on the edge in Bangkok, Thailand, on a steady diet of booze and prostitutes - and milkshakes. The young Thai woman working at the Dairy Queen, one side of her face horribly scarred, draws his interest enough to make him re-examine his life. In the hurt and haunted eyes of this girl, Robert sees his own reflection and knows he must do something to make her life better. If he can manage to redeem himself, maybe the ghosts will let him live in peace. But there is no peace for a trained killer who wants vengeance against those who victimize others. The beast inside Robert demands justice, and Robert cannot say no - even if it means the beast drags him down in an out-of-control spiral of violence that ends in his own death...

When the embassy is bombed by militant group Heroes Brigade, Gina discovers Morales has brought in an old Army buddy, Jake Turner, to help out.

America's security is at risk, and Gina Lopez returns to her homeland, Nicaragua, to work for former CIA Agent Roberto Morales, providing security intel for the US Embassy in Managua. But she can’t tell anyone about her true undercover assignment, especially not her boss Morales. When the embassy is bombed, Gina is saved by a blond American she later learns is a former army buddy hired by Morales to provide additional intel support. At first reluctant to work with Jake Turner, Gina soon warms up to him. Responsibility for the embassy tragedy is claimed by the miltant group Heroes Brigade. American reporter Rocky Brannon is in Nicaragua to investigate the possible connection between the Heroes Brigade and separatist group, God's Children, hidden deep in the jungle. Morales sends Gina and Jake to the jungle to gather intel on the terrorists while escorting Brannon to interview God’s Children leader, former priest Joaquín Torreón, who claims the group is peaceful despite the fact that his notorious brother Jesús, also known as Dark Angel, is an arms dealer wanted by Interpol. When Gina and Jake are attacked, Gina realizes someone is out to get her, and her undercover assignment is in jeopardy. A missing nuke, a high-powered US vigilante group known as Excalibur, the longtime feud between the two Torreón brothers, and a shady connection between Morales and the arms dealer, all make for a fiery situation that catches Gina right in the middle. Dodging betrayal and death, she isn't sure whom she can trust as she struggles to stay alive and uncover the truth.
