Book Description

The Lynthax Corporation is history but it's legacy lingers, and mankind's soul is now little more than a tank of gas.
 
Sebastian Scatkiewicz didn't ask to become the fulcrum about which human history moved; it just sort of happened. A US Marine who'd seen a little too much, Scat just hoped for a new life in the New Worlds. Since then, he's been embroiled in ever-larger conflicts, one stacked atop another. Now, in his greatest adventure (so far), Scat finds not just the fate of human life, but the fate of the afterlife itself placed squarely upon his shoulders. The second full-length Scat's Universe novel by Jim Graham provides all the thrills, twists, turns, and puzzles of his first, but ratchets them up. The politics, the deceit, the lies, the wheels-within-wheels conspiracies - not to mention the fighting - are all bigger, deeper, more urgent. If the stakes were high before, they've never been higher than they are now.
"Graham is far and away my favourite self-published SF author, and this book is far and away the best thing he's done so far. Read it!" --- SF Author Kevin Long
Praise for book one:
"BLOODY BRAVO!! What an enthralling read! What an amazing concept!"
"Scat is a big, intelligent, interesting novel. If you enjoy hard gritty sf with plenty of well-handled dialogue, you will not go far wrong with this one."
"Great stuff. Loved the concepts going on here, I like when someone creates a new and believable universe. There's a whole lotta book going on here, so strap yourself in for the ride! 10 out of 10!"
"...the coda is, well, I was drop jawed. I don't get drop jawed often... the new technology proves to have a horrifying price that I honestly didn't see coming, that I've never seen used before in a lifetime of reading SF, and which - hopefully - will be the setup for a sequel.--Republibot.com
"Scat is a sprawling novel, spanning years, full of ideas and conflicts that resonate in today's world, as good sci-fi is supposed to. ... Graham bombards the reader with ideas and the Scat's ambition and scope are a marvel." --Indiereader.com
'Army of Souls' picks up the Scat's Universe story a few months after the conclusion to 'Scat'.

More About the Author

Jim was born in Bushey, Middlesex, England and grew up in Hatfield, Hertfordshire where he spent his early years mostly covered in mud and grazes, either stirring up the neighbourhood wasp nests, or being gated to the garden where he would forage for the earwigs and spiders he needed to make snacks for his baby brother.

He passed selection for the 21st Special Air Service Regiment at age 17 and was later commissioned as a Second Lieutenant into the Queen's Regiment with which he served for several years in Northern Ireland.

Since leaving the army in 1986, he has lived and worked in Malaysia, South Africa, Belgium, Singapore and Hong Kong.

He began writing in September 2010 and has since published 'Scat' and 'Birdie Down', both based on events in Scat's Universe. 'Army of Souls', the sequel to 'Scat' is being prepared for a May 2013 launch.

Jim now lives with Vivien, his Malaysian-born wife, two East Asian street dogs and four pampered cats in Asia's World City, Hong Kong. It is the company-run city which inspired Go Down City and the Lynthax Corporation in Scat's Universe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scat is back! 6 Jan. 2014
By L.D.Bronstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Imagine the worst horror you can. Now double it, then double it again, and you’d still probably come up short in imagining the waking nightmares who rule the Andromeda Galaxy. An ancient species of self-styled elder gods, they prey not upon humanity itself, but on our very souls. Conducting an evil and disgusting trade in people seized in the moment of transition to the afterlife, there is something out there, waiting, devouring, plotting. But it won’t wait for long. Their hunger grows.

Entire worlds, governments, corporations, and even religions rise and fall in the face of a threat that would have made H.P. Lovecraft wet his bed and run away screaming into the night. When the mightiest, best, and brightest humanity has to offer prove insufficient to the task, when all else has failed, when there are demons on every corner and literally no hope in site, what could possibly turn the tide?

One Ex-US Marine.

And he’s really angry

Scat is back, in his second full-length novel. Having barely survived his first epic outing, he finds himself facing an enemy tough enough to take the devil’s lunch money and send him packing. It’s enough to make a guy nostalgic for the days when it was merely the entire human race that wanted him dead, and not the entire universe.

Fighting not just to save their own lives, but the afterlife itself, Sebastian Scatkiewicz and his loyal band of outcasts, rogues, theologians, rebels, and just-plain-weirdos don’t know if they’re up to the challenge. But they’re definitely going to find out, even if they die trying.

Graham is far and away my favorite self-published SF author, and this book is far and away the best thing he’s done so far. Read it!
5.0 out of 5 stars I want more Scat and Goose, please! 28 Dec. 2013

This book is a really fun read! There is plenty of action, plenty of gallows humor and a well developed storyline.
The plot is an interesting twist to the typical human-alien genre. I'm looking for more from the author. Hopefully very soon!
4.0 out of 5 stars A great follow-up to Scat's Universe 16 July 2013

I had the pleasure of reading Army of Souls, and think Jim has done a great job of developing the characters from Scat's Universe, and delivering the reader an exciting and confronting storyline. Very much a recommended read.

The first book was better. This one jumped around and had to many characters. It seemed like it was just setting up for a third book. I was disappointed.
