The calendar is whooshing along isn’t it? I’m so pleased to note…
The third book of Stealing the Sun, a space based Science Fiction series from frequent Analog contributor and bestselling Amazon Dark Fantasy author Ron Collins.
Available from Skyfox Publishing at:
A streak of light across a clouded sky
A distant planet. A harsh and desolate surface shrouded in layers of poisonous clouds. A sentient species formed by generations fighting both themselves and the planet they live on.
A blinding light burns through the sky before crashing into the farthest reaches of the desert lands.
Families want to own it. Priests want to turn it to their favor. But Jafred E’Lar, his clan’s representative to the Council, holds a terrible secret and another agenda altogether.
“Ron Collins covers the spectrum with clear prose, compelling characters and settings, and a bright imagination.”
Kevin J. Anderson
If you’re interested in the whole series, you can start with STARFLIGHT or even book 2, STARBURST. This is because I’ve configured the series to allow any of the first three books to act as “entry points.” If you like it, you will probably need to read all three before you get to what will eventually be book 4 (STARCLASH, due in March!).

“Great characters I cared about, a kick-ass plot with surprising twists, great techie details, and a powerful story. Pick up Starburst. I guarantee you won’t set it down until you’ve read every last word.”

Praise for STARFLIGHT: (From Amazon Reviews)
“This is truly GOOD stuff if you’re a fan of old-school science fiction; it’s like stumbling on some undiscovered Larry Niven, or something from Andre Norton, or Orson Scott Card, or even Asimov himself . it’s that good.”
“Ron Collins takes complex scientific concepts and makes them accessible to everyone.”
“If you’re looking for a great read with strong characters, Starflight should be on the top of your list.”
“If you love science fiction, you NEED to read this book!”
“I’ve been following Ron Collins’s writing for some time now, and it just keeps getting stronger and stronger.”
