I read them in boot camp for the Marines back in late/early 1992/1993. I believe the author might have the name taylor or tyler first or last name. The storyline followed one character on a future Earth controlled by a world government. He meets a girl on the red sea coast who is fighting to overthrow the government. The main character's brother in law is working for the secret police and is chased by him. The first story ends with his capture. The second book starts with the main character on a prision world with no walls. They have to board a train once a year I beleive to travel to the other side due to the close proximity to that planet's star. The third on is about the main character returning to Earth to overthrow the goverment. Any help would be awesome.

So, are they short stories or "books"?

That would be Harry Harrison's "To The Stars" trilogy consisting of "Homeworld", "Wheelworld" and "Starworld"
