Best Case Scenario: Act I of Nyra's Journey

“Isn’t hope in some form our best case scenario?”

More than a year out of college, Nyra’s beginning to wonder when her life gets started. Was it like this for her mother? She doubts it, but things were different, back then. Nyra’s reality is nothing like her mother’s.

Nyra gets that every generation faces its own challenges and she’s smart enough to know that it’s on her to overcome them. That’s why she’s worked two jobs all through college, studied so hard and tried not to worry too much about her mounting student loan debt.

Still, this feeling of wading through wet cement is getting old. Buried somewhere deep in the half-formed jumble of dreams for her future, Nyra hears the siren song of hope whispering to her. She’s so ready. But is the song she hears really hope or just hopeful illusion. Nyra would be lying if she claimed to know.

He’s nothing like her dreams…and everything she wants.

Nyra’s transition form college  grad scrambling for her first career job to full independence is as on track as it can be, these days. Her new marketing job is going well and even if she’s still living at home, Nyra’s pretty sure the light at the end of the tunnel is not an onrushing train.

Still, she gets bored, sometimes. A whimsical decision to take up surfing brings her together with Tai Abrega, a professional surfer and shaper so delicious Nyra’s imagination hasn’t even gotten around to fantasizing about a man like him, yet. And surfing awakens a latent, mystical connection with the sea as strong as her driven passion for the man himself.

But embracing one possibility often demands abandoning another. How can Nyra fit Tai and the seductive siren song of freedom into her “safer” vision of perfect? Can she blend her conventional world with his freespirited lifestyle, or is she doomed to disappointment and heartbreak?

Cover of Through the Windshield an anthology of short stories

Truth is a shapeshifter. Sometimes it slams into us, in a head-on collision, changing everything in an eyeblink. But more often, change arrives camouflaged in the ordinary, its significance becoming clear only upon reflection.

Sooner or later, we realize that we are at once our own jailers and the instruments of our own freedom, streaking toward a destiny lurking just beyond our headlights.

This anthology is a collection of Dirk’s short stories, some previously published, others released for the first time in this volume. Other stories are adapted from his longer fiction, as a kind of introduction to first-time readers.

Tier Zero, Vol. I of the Knolan Cycle

Two bedrock articles of faith woven into much of science fiction writing chronicling hypothetical  first contact between Earth and aliens are that we will necessarily know when it happens and that alien motives for that contact are likely to be malevolent. 

In Tier Zero, Volume I of the Knolan Cycle, first contact between Earth and Knola happened over 30 years ago. For an even so profoundly impactful, it seems strange that the event has escaped everyone’s notice. But that’s what’s happened and life on Earth (or Kurrithaal as the Knolans call it) goes on in apparent blissful ignorance that anything significant has taken place.

As for Knolan motives in making contact in the first place? Let’s just say its…complicated.

A Shadow of Today
From an amazing analysis of the world today, to a take on first contact, Dirk Sayers has presented the probable outcome of our current travels in the world. He has done so in such a way that I feel the emotions of the characters as if they were my own. Full of twists, turns, problems, solutions, and loss, I can easily recommend this book to anyone who appreciates well-constructed novels—J. Spector

Couldn't put it down!
A good science fiction writer has the ability to take you there and evoke emotions using characters and worlds that feel believable. This book manages this with a page turning urgency that makes it hard to put down. Both highly entertaining and thought provoking my biggest disappointment was turning the last page and not finding the next chapter—Semper Fi

Easy to read; hard to put down.
In Tier Zero, the first book of a trilogy, D. B. Sayers is inventive in his world-building and intricate in his assembly of characters in that world. He creates advanced technology but evokes its similarity in form to present-day equipment and knowledge to make the reader believe. Tier Zero has a vibrant troop of exciting actors, including the main protagonist. He, Marty, is a typical college student who is initiated into an alien world, a world in which he learns and grows to be a hero. His first book is an absorbing tale. I found himself flipping through the pages and completely lost track of time while reading...R. Morgan

Eryinath-5, The Dancer Nebula, Vol. II of the Knolan Cycle

“The universe is rarely respectful of our plans.” Khuurus, First Guardian of Knola.

Newly returned from his first successful mission as an officer in the Knolan Shock Forces, Hāthar barely has time to unpack before he’s drawn into the planning of a new and far more dangerous mission than the one he has just completed.

The Guardian isn’t asking Hāthar to lead it—only to plan it. And with his mate Arra carrying their first child, he’s never had a more compelling reason to stick close to home. But it’s a dark time for the Concordant and Hāthar has a problem with planning a dangerous mission someone else must execute. For him, Saʹ ang Kurinth, the Knolan call to duty is more than words.

The mission’s best chance for success is for Hāthar to lead it. And if it fails, the safety of the Concordant and Knola, the world he’s come to love as home will be in realistic danger. Duty, love and honor all lead Hāthar to the same conclusion. But even the Oracle’s uncanny perceptiveness cannot predict the outcome—and the fate of twenty-three systems including Hāthar’s old home Earth—all hang in the balance.
