John C. Wright, pulp master extraordinaire, is embarking on a new and glorious project for all space opera fans, inspired in part by his fun review of the Star Wars Episode VII movie that should have been, but now grown into something independent, much larger and more exciting.
You are all invited to be part of making it happen by visiting the above crowdfunding link and adding to the growing crowd of supporters that wish to do battle against the drudgery of imitation space opera. To the stars!
