An interesting indie project

Bundoran Press is an interesting indy publisher producing interesting books.  Their new project, Second Contacts, is seeking support:

20140424112210-Javenny-coverSecond Contacts will seek stories, from the best writers in the field, which explore the consequences of first contact, for us, for them, for our shared future. The possibilities are endless — conquest, collaboration, assimilation, or separation. On earth, in space, or on alien planets, what will happen to individuals and societies after two generations or more of staring into alien eyes?

Gods Of Earth (cover)


Wandering worlds finally arrive

It took 9 months longer than I planned, but I finished Evolution Commandos:  World Hammer.  This is the second of my Tarkos and Bria books, and I intend to write at least 7 more of them.  They are quite different from Gods of Earth (which is more broodingly numinous) or my short stories (which are mostly near future hard SF).  These books (which I call the Predator Space Chronicles) are optimistic, straight up, unabashed space opera, but with a green theme:  the protagonists belong to a special elite force that protects ecosystems.

Evolution Commandos: World Hammer

The books are available on Kindle, Nook, or Kobo.  A paperback version will be available this summer, when the three Evolution Commandos books will be combined into one huge novel.

I tell people considering buying one of the PSC books to start by listening to “Asteroid Monte,” on Escape Pod.  It gives a sense of the world and protagonists.



Strange Bedfellows!

I have a story in the forthcoming collection, STRANGE BEDFELLOWS.  I just saw the cover, which I think is great, don’t you?


And with a blurb from the great David Brin!  It doesn’t get much better than that.

Hayden is a talented editor.  I appreciated his help, and you’ll appreciate his selections. I’m confident anyone interested in SF or politics (and who isn’t interested in one or the other?) will love these stories.  Not to mention, Bundoran is a small press that is keeping SF vibrant.

Audible of Gods of Earth now available

I’ve been a member of Audible for years, so I’m delighted that Gods of Earth is finally available as an Audible download here.  It’s a great pleasure to see my novel there in what I consider one of my favorite bookstores.



20 for 2

Amazon is having a promotion of twenty ebooks available for just $2.00, good till the end of November.  Gods of Earth is one of the twenty.  See:

20 Kindle Books for $2 each

That’s cheaper than two donuts, or a comic, or most packs of gum nowadays.  The siren call of literature, nearly free!

It was fun to write “The Story Behind Gods of Earth” for  It allowed me to reflect on the when-the-writing’s-done moments:
