Folding Space Series 5.0

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory…  

Saree is trapped. On the verge of destruction, Hal sacrificed himself so Saree could escape on Lightwave. Then the ransom demand for her best friend Nari arrives and Saree hesitates. The best way for Hal to find Saree—when he escapes—is staying on schedule, onboard Lightwave. But saving Nari from Lightwave’s old enemy means taking crazy risks and tossing all their careful plans into the vacuum.

When a Gov Human military rescue team arrives, they seem like the perfect answer. But Lightwave’s crew and the rescue team immediately clash, fighting for control. Saree seizes command, forcing them to work together, but her lack of experience and incompetence alienates everyone. As the ancient adage says, “Bad leaders with good intentions fold into black holes.” Can Saree and Lightwave’s crew survive to rescue Nari and Hal, or will freedom tick away forever?

Available everywhere! Lightwave: Lost, Folding Space Series 4.0

United we fall, divided we run.

Saree’s secret identity isn’t so secret anymore, so she agrees to leave Lightwave behind—forever. When every mercenary, bounty hunter and opportunist is searching for you, traveling alone is terrifying. But if she stays on Lightwave, their enemies will find them.

While Lightwave and her crew run for the fringes of known space, Saree and her seemingly sentient shuttle, Hal, head the other direction. But are they really safer apart? Will Hal’s impulsive behavior thrust them straight into a black hole? And what happens when the Time Guild decides to interfere? Find out in Lightwave: Lost, Folding Space Series 4.0!

 

Available everywhere! Folding Space Series 3.0, Lightwave: Shooting Star!

Is the aging boy-band singer a shooting star doomed to burn in fast? Or is he shooting back?

When Lightwave agrees to transport a washed-up pop star, they anticipate temper tantrums, arrogance, and the occasional out-of-her-orbit teenage fangirl. And the fangirls hit like the mother of all meteor fields.

What they don’t expect is a space station full of Old Earth sci-fi fans, the Robber Barons of Aus fulfilling every wish their fangirl daughters have, or an old enemy rising from the dust clouds of Lacerta.

Can Lightwave and Saree survive the pop star and his fans? And what about that old enemy? Find out in Lightwave: Shooting Star, Folding Space Series 3.0!

Lightwave: The Sisters of Cygnus, Folding Space Series 2.0

Stuck between a hot rock and a hard, cold place.

The Sisters of Cygnus provide the crew of Lightwave a safe place to rest and relax. But when Lightwave makes their usual resupply run, they find marauding prospectors attacking the colonists. The Inquisitors, as they’re known, search for transuranic metals deep underground; stealing, raping and pillaging the outlying ranches. The Sisters need help to oust the evil from their planet.

Unwilling to resume a mercenary life, Captain Ruhger offers to evacuate the Sisters, transporting them to a new world. But Mother Ferra, the Sister’s leader, desperately wants some startup credits to ease their way and the Inquisitors aren’t willing to let slave labor just fly away. Saree, Hal and Lightwave’s crew have no idea how far either will go…

Can Saree survive the dangerous caverns of Cygnus Gliese? Can Lightwave hold off the Inquisitors? Find out in Lightwave: The Sisters of Cygnus!

Lightwave: Clocker, Folding Space Series 1.0cropped-3d-render-book-transparent.png

Freedom ticks away, one nanosecond at a time…

When a bounty hunter closes in, Saree jumps on Lightwave Fold Transport, the only way out-system. But Lightwave’s crew might be a bigger threat. Can Saree hide her real identity as the only human Clocker? Or will the crew uncover her secret and turn her in for the reward?

Lightwave seems safe, at first. But Saree quickly regrets her snap decision. The Captain hates her, the steward wants a fling and security suspects she wants to steal the ship. Even worse, the whole crew might be mercenaries, hired to hunt her.

Can Saree remain free to maintain the space fold clocks that allow safe travel between systems? Or will she be forced to serve a crime lord or unscrupulous corporation? Blockading and blackmailing systems is no way to live…

This new space opera races across the universe, one step ahead of danger. If you like Firefly, try Lightwave: Clocker!
