A Note From The Author: Recently I have been experimenting with pricing to judge the effect on sales for all of my books. I am using ANTARES DAWN as a loss/leader to encourage people who have not read me before to give my books a try. If you like technologically sophisticated science fiction, you will probably like the way I write. A warning: DAWN is the book most likely to sink its hooks deeply into new readers who enjoy reading what I enjoy reading. Once you've read it, you may end up buying all of my books. Proceed at your own risk! (Tempe, AZ, February 26, 2012)
When the supergiant star Antares exploded in 2512, the human colony on Alta found their pathway to the stars gone, isolating them from the rest of human space for more than a century. Then one day, a powerful warship materialized in the system without warning. Alarmed by the sudden appearance of such behemoth, the commanders of the Altan Space Navy dispatched one of their most powerful ships to investigate. What ASNS Discovery finds when they finally catch the intruder is a battered hulk manned by a dead crew.
That is disturbing news for the Altans. For the dead battleship could easily have defeated the whole of the Altan navy. If it could find Alta, then so could whoever it was that beat it. Something would have to be done.
