BFTSS - Tactics

After a few months of work, I'm pleased to announce the first release of a video game set in the BFTSS universe.


Battle for the Solar System: Tactics (working title) is a turn based strategy game, in which you will take on the role of the CSN during the Pandoran war. You will be able to fly a host of different fighters from the novel trilogy, as well as some new fighters created especially for the game.

Right now, the game is at version 0.1, which means that there is still a lot of work to be done. However, it is playable and will give players a glimpse of what the final game will be like.

You can find out more about the game on its dedicated page: http://www.battleforthesolarsystem.com/games/

Andrew Emmett's review of THE ATTRIBUTE OF THE STRONG

Andrew Emmett has once again read and reviewed one of my books, this time THE ATTRIBUTE OF THE STRONG, the final book in the BATTLE FOR THE SOLAR SYSTEM trilogy.

In his review, Andrew says: "A strong sci-fi story that should satisfy space battle nerds (which I am). If you enjoyed the monster space battles in the final days of DS9, then you definitely should check it out!"

You can read the entire review here:

Thanks again to Andrew for the review!

Andrew Emmett's review of THE THIRD SIDE

Andrew Emmett has reviewed THE THIRD SIDE, book 2 of the BATTLE FOR THE SOLAR SYSTEM trilogy, over on his website.

Andrew says, "I enjoyed reading book two, which has good pace. The nuggets of space opera gold that unfolded in the later parts of the story, are a great incentive to read the next instalment."

You can read the whole review here:

Thanks very much to Andrew for posting it!
