I met Dan Thompson in a writers’ group on Google Plus. He was working on space opera that sounded suspiciously like something I’d like. The book came out recently and I grabbed a sample.
I was right.
TL;DR: Good book.
While you’re waiting for my next book to come out, grab a sample of Ships Of My Fathers and see if you like it. There’s a lot of Ishmael Wang in Michael Fletcher and a bit of Lois McKendrick in the Heavy Heinrich. There are a lot more points of view and the book has a bit more interpersonal conflict than the Share series but I’m looking forward to his next book already.
