Spinward Fringe

Spinward Fringe Broadcast 17: Clash Begins This Saturday!

This podcast has an audio version!

After writing a fantasy novel (NEM: Awakening), a Cyberpunk Space Opera (Psycho Electric), and a space adventure short (The Last of the Bullet Chasers), it’s time to write the next Spinward Fringe novel: Clash.

This book starts by looking back on major events in Broadcast 11: Revenge, when Jacob Valent ordered the release of an intelligent virus called Mary. The aftershock of that is ongoing as Haven Fleet allies worry that he may resort to breaking other Galactic laws, so they’re demanding that Haven take action to make sure that this doesn’t happen. We see the results of that fear in the prologue, which takes place over three months after the end of Broadcast 16.

At this point, Alice, Ayan, Minh-Chu and the rest of the gang are near their breaking point because the fight against the Order of Eden and the Edxi hasn’t progressed. What happens next will push them over the edge.

I’d love to tell you more about this book, especially since I’ve been preparing to write it for a year now, but you’ll have to read along as the chapters come out or wait a little longer for the completed ebook.

Welcome To The New Site… Again!

I’m happy to unveil the new, lasting home on WordPress. This will be easier to navigate, update, and it’ll be able to support all the content I offer. Things didn’t work out with Wix for reasons I don’t really care to get into, but I can’t recommend them to anyone.

On a much more positive note, I’m celebrating the launch of this site with a short Question and Answer Podcast Episode! I hope you enjoy it, and hope to see a few questions in the comments, I’ll make sure I answer them as soon as I can.

I’m eternally grateful to Patrick D. Emond for the theme music, which is only a taste of the entire Spinward Fringe Suite.

A short Q&A! Ask questions in the comments to get answers in the next one!
