Book #1 – Moonscape
We’ve known that the moon is dead since Apollo. But what if something lay dormant in the dust, waiting to be found?
In 2028, Mark Noble is conducting a survey of a moon crater. The entity secretly grabs a ride back to Moonbase on Mark’s buggy. Once in the habitat, it begins to take over the crew. They find themselves in a frightening, helter-skelter adventure with only two possible outcomes: losing or saving the Earth.
MOONSCAPE is a hard science fiction story from Tony Harmsworth, a First Contact specialist who writes in the style of the old masters. If you like fast-paced adventure, fraught with the additional dangers found in space, then Tony’s latest tale has been written especially for you.

Book #2 – Moonstruck
After the frantic escape from the moon at the end of Moonscape, Mark has only just recovered when he discovers that the United States, together with the Chinese and Russians, are planning an invasion of Moonbase, and they want him to command it.
Penny, an old flame of Mark’s, is on the mission and this infuriates wife Linda, who has been grounded. Twenty-six others form the crew. Not only is it the biggest space expedition in history, but it also represents the most people ever to have been on the moon at the same time, and the most manned spacecraft in orbit too. Can Mark control the fourteen strong military contingent? As the story develops, he realises that he does not have as much authority as he believed.
Once again, Harmsworth has combined hard science fiction together with a fanciful, yet plausible story with totally convincing characters.
If Mark has international cooperation and support, how could anything go wrong? Surely a single offensive should be enough? No! The vicious mid-story plot-twist changes everything.

Book #3 – Trappist-1
Following the 2030 discovery of quantum spolding (space folding), interstellar exploration becomes a possibility. NASA, together with private space exploration companies, begin work on the complex physics, technology, and hardware to turn it into reality.
After a test flight to Mars, more hazardous than anyone anticipated, the starship Spirit and its two Rimor shuttles set off for the dwarf red star, Trappist-1, almost forty light years from the solar system. Haven, the fifth Trappist planet, has continents and seas, icecaps, glaciers and mountains, but the ubiquitous plant life they find is, at first, dull and uninteresting.
However, it doesn’t take long for them to discover that Haven isn’t a place on which to find shelter. It does, in fact, have the most terrifying secret, only discovered during the last day of the expedition. As realisation dawns, Mark and his team end up in an existential struggle.
When they finally appear to have resolved their disastrous visit to the planet’s surface, they discover an even bigger surprise awaiting them in orbit. It promises so much. Could it be enough to revitalise the whole mission and turn failure into success?

Book #4 – The Spolding Conundrum
Following Moonscape and Moonstruck, Mark’s team of entity-enhanced humans set off to Trappist-1 in the search for an Earth-like planet. The newly discovered spolding drive, which exploits the difference between normal space and the dark universe, cuts travel time to fractions of what might otherwise be needed.
At the end of Trappist-1, book 3, the depleted crew make the horrific discovery that something has gone terribly wrong. The world is different, satellites have vanished, the space station has gone, and only astrophysicist Mary has the slightest idea why.
After the shocking revelation that the problem was caused by the spolding drive, the crew try to analyse what happened and how they might return to their own Earth. Is backtracking the answer? They decide that they have no alternative other than to try. If it didn’t work, they could wander, lost, through the local universe until their supplies eventually ran out.
Back in the Trappist-1 system, they learn that things have changed there too, but the biggest surprise is encountered when they orbit the frozen surface of icy planet G. They hear distinct radio signals from the surface.
The discovery makes it even more imperative to return to Earth, and soon. There is far more at stake than just the lives of the Spirit crew. Hundreds more are threatened with the inevitability of a long drawn out death.
Just when plans are beginning to look promising, another paradox hits the crew. One with incredible repercussions.
Will rescue arrive in the nick of time? Find out in The Spolding Conundrum!
