The cover art for Jon Del Arroz’s new space opera series was revealed yesterday, and it is a beauty.
Early review copies of this book will be provided to backers of the Starquest crowdfunding campaign at the Templar Squire level and above. With five days of the campaign left to go, it has just reached its third stretch goal, the full funding of the first three books in the series.

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!

besides many more fun and imaginative stories by a variety of talented authors, both established and new talent.
Watch out for it, and spread the word!
Just yesterday a new space opera came out that I was the editor of. It is the debut novel of Yakov Merkin, a fellow member of CLFA:
It’s a book that I enjoyed editing, and one that builds into a fun action-packed romp filled with intriguing scenarios, high-stakes internal and external conflicts, cool technologies and powers, colourful alien races and a rich and varied galaxy.
There’s a corrupt and crumbling galactic republic, with ancient grievances flaring up into new bloodshed; a grave new threat to the old order, an uneasy alliance based on a lie, a seemingly impossible quest for vengeance, and an equally unlikely search for redemption.
If that sounds good to you, check it out!
