1803. The Napoleonic War. A Royal Navy warship is ordered to pursue an enemy frigate to the frozen waters far south in the Indian Ocean.

 

There it must capture the enemy ship and retrieve a mysterious sea-chest, contents unknown. Failure not permitted.

 

For the determined young captain and his eager crew, this already dangerous mission turns into a battle with a mysterious vessel that appears not in the sea, but, unbelievably, impossibly, in the sky above them. And it is not friendly.

THE INVADERS ARE ONE ENEMY. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS THE OTHER.

★★★★★  "A clarion call for our times.”

★★★★★  “Wonderful satire of modern political correctness.”

★★★★★ “Absolutely incredible.”

★★★★★  “A good solid satire that pokes fun at Identity Politics.”

★★★★★  “Kurt Schlichter move over…”

It's the near future. 500 years after the first contact in Fifty Degrees South. 

The world has changed. It is ruled by an extreme form of political correctness. PC is no longer about politeness. It's about lies, censorship and oppression. Dissent is punished. No one dares speak up. Everyone must be 'woke.'

 

When the invaders return to attack Earth's cities, chaos ensues. And a lone Navy Lieutenant named Alex Burns seizes the chance to fight for freedom--both from the invaders and Earth's tyrannical leaders.

 

Will he succeed? Read what happens in this thought-provoking science fiction action novel. It might be called satire if it wasn't so frighteningly close to reality.

IF YOU ENJOYED READING THE STORY, JUST WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR IT. 

All the action.

All the accents! 

Every gripping moment. 

Brilliantly narrated by voice actor, David McCallion, the audiobook version of 'Fifty Degrees South' is an astonishing listening experience. 

Even when I was 'proofing' David's final read of the book, reading along with the text, I found myself swept away to the deck of HMS Morgause as it surged southward into ice, danger, and events beyond human reason.

Once there, listen to a sample chapter, check out the reviews, then download a copy of the audiobook for yourself.

WHO IS  M.M. HOLT?

IMG_5160.jpg

M.M. Holt is a mysterious figure who lives partly in the real world, but more often in his imagination. 

He writes science fiction, horror and adventure novels, often involving a Navy lieutenant named Alex Burns who struggles to keep his sanity in a repressive future dystopia. This same Alex Burns also fights alien invaders. Sometimes Burns's great seafaring ancestors also appear in the books. They are also named Alex Burns, and in their own times, they also battled invaders from beyond the stars. Battling aliens and dystopian regimes is like a family tradition. 

M.M. Holt is relentless traveler. He can usually be found writing in cafes by the sea, or in a bar on the edge of a crowded street, usually in far flung cities. If you see him, he'll be the handsome yet enigmatic stranger pounding the keyboard of his laptop, pausing only to sip black coffee and glance warily over his shoulder. He knows the Accord Of Nations is always one step behind.
