New Kickstarter for a Lost Signals of the Terran Republic anthology. If you aren’t reading the works of Chuck Gannon, you should be! This might be a great place to start.
Those of you who are already readers of the Caine Riordan universe pretty much know what to expect from these stories: gritty yet doggedly optimistic hard sf in a world that is a believable and embattled successor to our own. But for those who are not familiar with the series’ hallmark blend of exploration, alien encounters, intrigue, and action, then . . .
Welcome to the 22nd century where humanity has just reached out to the stars and now finds itself challenged by contact by five (or is that four?) very different (yet very realistic) alien species whose motivations are as unusual and arresting as their physical forms. Of course, planet Earth still has plenty of problems, injustice, and inequities of its own to deal with.
