Brandon Q. Morris
Brandon Q. Morris (Matthias Matting’s pen name) is a space specialist and physicist. He was born August 26, 1966 in Luckenwalde (East Germany). He’s long been concerned with space issues, both privately and professionally and even though he wanted to become an astronaut, he needed to stay behind on Earth for a variety of different reasons.

He’s especially fascinated by the “what if” and through each of his books he aims to share some compelling hard science fiction stores which could really happen, and someday just might happen.

After he finished his physics studies at the TU Dresden, he became an editor at a specialist publisher in Munich for computer magazines. In the years that followed, he worked among other things, as editor for Computer Bild, Focus, Heise-Verlag, and Wirtschaftswoche. Additionally, he regularly published specialist books on different technical topics along with several fiction books. He operated web portals for self-publishers and offers up various seminars for writers.

From February 2015 to December 2017 he was the chairman of the board of the German Self Publisher Association, which he co-founded.

In 2011, he was one of the first winners of the, endowed with a total of 20,000 euros, in the non-fiction category for Travel to Fukushima. Skoutz Award 2019 in the Science Fiction category together with Cliff Allister for the novel Helium-3. He earned a Fantastik-Literaturpreis Seraph 2020 nomination longlist for “Best Independent Title” for his novel “Das Triton-Desaster”.

“The Enceladus Mission” is the first novel in the “Ice Moon” series and was released in 2018. The year is 2031, a robot probe detects traces of biological activity on one of Saturn’s moons, Enceladus. This is a sensational discovery which shows there’s indeed evidence of extraterrestrial life. Fifteen years go by, one hurriedly built spacecraft sets off on a long journey headed to the ringed planet and its moon.

The international crew’s not only facing a difficult twenty-seven months: should the spacecraft manage to make it all the way to Enceladus without an incident it has to use a drillship to penetrate the kilometer-thick sheet of ice which entombs the moon. If life does in fact exist upon Enceladus, it might only be at the bottom of the ice covered, salty ocean, which formed billions of years prior.

But right after disaster hits this mission, and the chances of the crew making it to Enceladus, let alone getting back home, look rather grim.

Morris describes the journey of this international expedition through the hostile vacuum of space, and uses the latest technology trends and scientific findings as his inspiration. This is not some What If book, but actually a When Will book.

“Mars Nation” is the first novel in the “Mars Trilogy” and was released in 2019. NASA finally made it. The very first human has just set foot onto the surface of our neighbor planet. This is the beginning of a long research expedition which sent four different scientists into space. However the four astronauts of the NASA crew aren’t the only ones that have been handed this destination.

The privately funded “Mars for Everyone” initiative has also targeted the Red Planet. Twenty women and men have been chosen to live up there and establish the very first extraterrestrial settlement. Challenges arise before then can even reach Mars orbit.

The MfE spaceship Santa Maria gets damaged on its way. Just the four NASA astronauts are able to intervene and attempt to save their lives. Nobody can anticipate the impending catastrophe which threatens their existence, not to mention the daily struggles which an extended stay on the alien planet sets out before them. On Mars, this struggle starts for human cooperation, limited resources, and plain old survival.

“The Hole” is the first novel in the “Solar System” series and was released in 2019. This mysterious object threatens to destroy our entire solar system. Mankind’s survival is at risk, however no one takes young astrophysicist Maribel Pedreira’s warning too seriously. Meanwhile, one exiled crew of outcasts mines for some rare minerals on this lone asteroid.

Once the other scientists finally acknowledge Pedreira’s alarming find, it becomes more obvious that these outcasts are the ones that might be able to save our world, knowing that The Hole hurtles inexorably toward the sun.

All of the events and the descriptions found in this novel could become a reality some day.

“The Death of the Universe” is the first novel in the “Big Rip” series and was released in 2020. For many billions of years, humans, who have conquered the curse of aging, spread throughout all of the Milky Way. They’re able to live out all their dreams, however much to their great disappointment, there’s been no other intelligent species encountered.

Humanity itself is now close to extinction because the universe is dying off to a protracted yet inevitable death. They’ve only a single hope: The “Rescue Project” was designed to feed the black hole at the center of the galaxy until it becomes a quasar, which delivers mankind some much needed energy while it takes its final breaths. However then something happens which nobody every expected, and humanity is stuck looking at itself and its existence in a whole new way.

“Amphitrite” is the first novel in the “Black Planet” series and was released in 2020. It is not any ordinary celestial body. It is the black planet. Amphitrite.

For many years now, astronomers have been trying to find a planet beyond Neptune’s orbit. They keep on finding these clues, however the decisive evidence of actual sighting one eludes them.

The four astronauts on board the Ganymeded Explorer are not interested in any scientific renown. They only need a safe place they can hide out, as far away as possible from civilization of any sort. However it appears apt that they of all people end up being the ones that track down a previously unknown planet. They land filled with curiosity and enthusiasm, and doesn’t even occur to them to be afraid. However they don’t know what they’ve even found. Amphitrite is the black planet, not some ordinary celestial body.

    I really enjoy Morris’s stories. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. They are good old hard scifi, which I have been reading since age 13 in 1963. We got access to scifi when we asked if we could read adult books. at the library They let me and my friend loose on the scifi section, not knowing how it would effect our intellectual development- positively as far as I am concerned but some people have thought me nutty cos’ of my ideas etc!!!. As a 13 year old I read Simac , Heinlein , Sturgeon and much more. I have read loads of scifi and some space opera but NOT sci fantasy as it tends to be silly. I am now 70 and still avidly read scifi when I can. KINDLEUNLIMITED has recently given me lots of scope.
    I LOVE Morris’s books being on KINDLEUNLIMITED. Now I have the list of books I can fill in the gaps. I read on my Amazon Fire 8. Its better than an ordinary Kindle as it is a small tablet with full internet capacity. Ann
