I’m John Mierau (rhymes with Hero!). I’m a writer and narrator of adventure stories with strong characters and alternate somethings in it: space-opera, near-future thrillers, alt-history & more. You can buy my books on Kindle & Audible, and serialized versions of many of the stories are also available free on Wattpad & Podcast thanks to the generosity of my supporters on Patreon (who get patron-only stories & advanced access to free works).

My first pro sale was Marked Men, to the DAW anthology Slipstreams. Serving Worlds, the name of this site and blog, was also the name of my first free fiction podcast: a short story collection. My first published novel was the near-future SF thriller Subversion: Book 1 of the Enemy Lines. I’m is also the creator of the Walk The Fire anthology series, featuring collaborations with other authors in a shared world, and the Farlost series, set in a far-flung future where aliens and humans struggle to survive, trapped in an isolated solar system.

If you want more stories, consider becoming a Patreon supporter, or making a PayPal donation. There are other ways to support: you can tell a friend, spread the word about ServingWorlds.com in social media or drop me a line and tell me what settings or characters you love!
