Time Travel Shenanigans in The Reality WarAugust 10, 2021
My latest book has just come out in Kindle and paperback editions from Seventh Seal Press. This is In the Wings, the latest Four Horsemen Universe anthology. The first anthology (A Fistful of Credits, 2017) was my introduction to the 4HU, and it excited me enough that I was soon writing 4HU stories myself. I hope this new 4HU anthology (the tenth!) will be a happy starting point for some more readers.
In this book, fifteen of us have taken leading support characters from earlier stories and made them the stars they always were. My story was about how rogue trader, Captain Jenkins, fell foul of the Earth authorities and wound up plying the trade lanes of the Spine Nebula.
Was… but then I had an even better idea and wrote that instead. 😉
