Publisher's Summary

Fifteen of the best indie authors. Fifteen extraordinary stories. One best-selling universe.

It’s the 22nd 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 best-selling 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 best-selling 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!

Another great collection of short stories

More short stories greatly expand the 4HU. The narrator does an incredible job bringing each character to life.
