New David Drake Collaborative Series Debuts

An untested young colonial hero-in-the-making ventures into the intergalactic wilderness to drive off an incursion by corrupt Earth-based Terrans. Plus, Drake co-author John Lambshead, a marine biologist at London’s Natural History Museum, helps serve up some very cool (and highly plausible) alien environments that are ripe for adventure!

Check out John Lambshead's essay on the science of Into the Hinterlands here.

Get Into the Hinterlands by David Drake and John Lambshead, now.

Rogue Justice, Williamson Style

Problem: a sociopathic tactical forces specialist gone rogue with planet-killing tech at his fingertips and the will to use it. Solution: the commanding officer who trained him, a man who must reawaken the beast within himself to save a world.

Get Rogue now.
