It’s D-Day for Arun McEwan. Renegade Legion is live!

Poor Arun. After running for his life for much of Indigo Squad, Arun has it even harder in the new Human Legion book, Renegade Legion. Fighting for freedom is hard, but winning freedom is far more difficult, as Arun and his comrades are about to find out. The Human Legion Book3: Renegade Legion is published today in Kindle eBook and in paperback.  Click here for the eBook and here for the paperback. If you enjoy this book, or one of the earlier ones, then do please leave a good review on Amazon or Goodreads.

A space opera book launch… with Lego!

I am proud and excited to announce that Indigo Squad, the second book in the Human Legion series, is working its way through Amazon’s servers to be available from the Kindle Store within the next 12 hours. It will initially be available as a Kindle book, with a paperback to follow a few days later. The initial price will be 99 cents, or the equivalent in local currency, and I will keep it there for at least a week before raising the price. My intention is to follow this pattern with the other books, to give humanlegion.com subscribers the chance to get each new book at the bargain price. My son is very excited. He’s been spending Christmas vacation dreaming up Lego constructions, and to […]

On getting around inside spacecraft

The bridge of the Starship Enterprise. CIC in Babylon 5. The Millennium Falcon’s gun blister that Luke uses to shoot down pursuing TIE fighters in Star Wars. And while we’re at it: Flash Gordon’s fizzing cigar tube rocket ship, the TARDIS control room, the entirety of Battlestar Galactica. These locations have been the backdrop to some perfect moments of science fictional movies and TV, but that’s not all that connects them.

All the locations have an up and a down. Not only that but down is always pointing in the same direction, […]

Mobilization Alert!

The Kindle version of Marine Cadet, the first Human Legion book, is available for pre-order from Amazon now: getbook.at/HLegion1 priced 99 cents in the US and something similar in other regions. This is the double-length feature that kicks off all six books in the series. (It’s 140,000 words, which is pretty big. I had thought of splitting it in two but that would be an artificial division for the purpose of selling more books). The second book, Indigo Squad, is going through final editing now for release January 2015. Writing has started on the third book: Renegade Legion. And since I seem to be discussing the series, the other three books are all sketched out in detail. I hope you’ll enjoy reading them […]
