. . . and it's a good one - his first novel-length foray into science fiction. It's titled 'Rimworld: Into The Green'.
The blurb reads:
After a chance encounter with Dragoons and Traders turns a routine planet exploration into a rout that kills his team and his career, Lieutenant Ethan Fargo, medically retired, wants nothing more than to hole up in the backwater Rimworld he’d explored and enjoy a quiet retirement far from people or problems.
Unfortunately, he's about to find out that he's not as retired as he wants to be, and that his new home system comes with dangers, politics, and Dragoon sightings of its own. What promised to be a boring retirement will turn out to be anything but.
Lawdog, Miss D., myself and others helped critique and edit this book, so we've followed its development closely. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and recommend it (as I do all Jim's books).
To give you a taste of Jim's Rimworld milieu, he's offering his first short story set in that environment, 'Rimworld: Stranded', free of charge until tomorrow, Saturday, May 6th. Think of it as moonshine (the liquid variety), with rayguns and spaceships!
Click over there and download it for a short, but fun read - then try Jim's new novel for a longer one!
