Earthrise – Stranded on the Moon: Astronaut Rescue Mission is a hard sci-fi/thriller by Gabriel Namara.
When Commander Steemson and his crew are forced to make an emergency landing on the Moon, veteran astronaut, Jim Borman, is called out of retirement for this last mission — to fly the only rocket on Earth capable of immediate launch.
Obsessed billionaire, Bill Leeb, has built a Saturn V replica and is willing to put it at NASA’s disposal for the rescue. But on one condition — a condition that places Jim Borman in a moral dilemma and will force a terrible choice on the spaceship’s crew. As preparations go ahead for the rescue, the stranded astronauts make earth-shattering discoveries on the Moon.

A Word from the Author
I wanted to write the book because I wanted to read it, but did not find it anywhere else.
What inspired me was a book by astronaut Mike Mullane, “Riding Rockets” and as a fan of the space program eversince, I knew that there was an old school astronaut adventure yet to be written. Some will remember the Moon Rocket of the 1960’s. Well, I thought that in modern times, old technology might be the only option for a rescue mission, after the new Orion mission crashed on the Moon. What is interesting is that I thought I should give Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin a cameo apprearance as fictional characters – because Apollo 11 might have something in store which my contemporary astronauts needed to escape from the surface of the Moon. There is a flashback that could shed a light on what really happened back in 1969. Politics are everywhere, you know…

I wrote this book because not only is it a genre I love, but because I wanted something dark. Twisting the genre on its head and leaving it bleak appealled to me, as it’s interesting to delve into the human psyche and watching humanity unravel. It’s certainly not for the faint hearted!

Whatever The Impulse is a dark tale that follows an untapped prodigy, Night Shannien, from total obscurity, to teen idol, in the mid 1980’s pop-music era. It begins in the isolation of coastal Oregon where locals know Night as the deaf bartender who works at the Emerald Shore, a bar-restaurant owned by his father. But why Night is forced to pretend to be a deaf-mute is not the only secret his father keeps from him.
It takes a tenacious teen girl who visits the restaurant and his father’s own girlfriend to blow apart all the lies and launch Night into a new life, a world her doesn’t understand–as a fugitive–and the person who he literally dreamed could give him a normal life offers him everything but. Finally, with a growing list of impossible challenges, new threats, and his past still hunting him down, Night falls back on the only guideline that makes sense… Whatever The Impulse.
