2 A Pinata For Juanita [A Short Story from the Shards Universe] [MultiFormat]
by Peter W. Prellwitz

If sharding continues, however, it does so at an increasing rate, weakening the psychic barriers, until it reaches a cascade level. Once cascade sh... more info>> (Published: 2006)

6 Shards [Book Four] [MultiFormat]
by Peter W. Prellwitz
  A sudden, rending scream from the depths of hell made even these seasoned veterans jerk and twirl toward this terrifying, unknown enemy. Aaron's high-speed slug gun had the piercing screech of a banshee as he stood there--his legs so immobile despite the wicked recoil that they seemed bolted to the stone floor. With his upper body and shoulders, he muscled the gun in sweeping motions that disintegrated cold metal and warm flesh alike, each shredding like paper from the gun's heavy slugs. They da... more info>> (Published: 2005)

7 Shards [Book Three] [MultiFormat]

Six and half centuries of despair, her mind controlled, programmed, used, by others. Thoughts no longer hers.

13 The Science of Magic [From the Shards Universe] [MultiFormat]
by Peter W. Prellwitz
