Update: the sign up period has now closed, and initial Recon Team candidates are being contacted. Stay sharp, though, in case we need to call up the reserves 🙂
Human Empire is the fourth book in the Human Legion series. If real life behaved itself, the book would be available to buy now. But no plan survives contact with reality, as you know. Ours certainly hasn’t, but we’ve never stopped re-knotting our plan in a way that would make the Duke of Wellington proud.
And it’s worked! We pulled some time back, and we’re just days away from finishing.
We’ve had some wonderful messages of support from fans, but I’m sure for some that it’s been such a long time since the last book came out (June 6th) that the Human Legion has eroded into a half-forgotten memory.
So, let me tempt you with some things you will find in the new book:
OK, I admit, I did make up one of those items. I like to say that you have to read the novel to find out which one, but I suspect you’ve already guessed.
More to the point, we’re ready to start recruiting a Force Recon Team for the new novel. For those on the squad last time, once again I thank you for your input, and we will assume you would like to be involved with the Human Empire team unless you tell us otherwise. For those who weren’t, the Recon Team scanned the draft version of Renegade Legion for booby-traps: inconsistencies, clumsy or confusing wording, heathen Britishness, contrived characters, and any sign of dullness. (see this post from last time for more details).
Given that we’re so late with this release, we are going to do things a little differently.
So, the takeaway…
Human Empire is coming soon. We don’t have a firm date for when the Recon Edition will be ready, but it will be in the next few days.
Finally, thank you for all your messages of support during which had been a difficult time for us. It has really helped.
