More of the Galaxy Ascendant Series by Yakov Merkin

Superversive Press has been busy lately getting multiple new releases out in time for DragonCon, and I will focus on each of those in separate posts over the coming week, but before I get to that, it was about time that I mention an indie space opera project that I’ve been editing for Israeli soldier and author Yakov Merkin.

I’ve recently handed over my final edits of Galaxy Ascendant book 4 to Yakov, and am working on my second editing pass of book 5, so those two will be coming out in the near future, and the crowdfunding campaign for them can be found by clicking on the image below:

Book 3 has been out for a while and is full of action, adventure, intrigue, espionage, and among other things features space and ground battles, secret missions, mystical energies, cool mind powers, blue-skinned seductresses, a race of sentient machines and an alien Space Trump in power armor. What more can you ask for?

Speaking of Stunning Cover Art…

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. If you haven’t already, check out the campaign via the button below

Be Part of Making Starquest Happen!

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!

and

Galactic Outlaws by Nick Cole and Jason Anspach, Book Two in the Galaxy’s Edge series (Book One being Amazon bestseller Legionnaire)

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!

A Greater Duty, by Yakov Merkin

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!
