It takes a lot of money to live forever. The Royal Council of Eris, home of Earth’s exiled Transhumanists, have solved the high financial costs. Fleshies are no longer needed to support the planet’s infrastructure. Controlled for over two hundred years by “soft kill” measures, the order is given to exterminate the Fleshies.

One family, the Henry’s, want to live. Can they stand against the Royal Council and a heartless government machine that intends to kill all Fleshies?  Available for purchase now!

“Anyone who loves to read action-packed sci-fi books should give Hard Kill a shot.”

What's New with Bill Eckel

Hey Y’all,

Let’s start with the good news. Academy of the Heart and Mind will publish a non-fiction story I wrote, “The Most Memorable Day of My Life.” It drops Feb. 26, online only. If you ever wondered what the inside of a tornado looks like, this is the story for you.

So here we are slipping and sliding into January with ice storms and co-o-o-old temps!!!!!!! But I’m not complaining. . .  much.

On the writing side, “First Created” is percolating on my office shelf, awaiting preparations for launch.  So much to do first, though. Preps, preps, preps make the launch go smooth. They also help with colonoscopies, but that’s another story.

Here’s hoping your new year is bright, happy, and prosperous.

I’ve been writing every since my mother told me to sit down and shut up. I have written a little bit of everything. Presently, I’m into ancient aliens and science fiction. My stories are more of a military sci-fi/space opera than hard science.

What’s funnier than the truth? Dollar Bill puts an exclamation mark on the old adage. “You can’t make this stuff up”. From the iconic “Yard Sale” to “Abducted” Dollar Bill takes a simpler look at life.
