Dan Thompson and I have been trading online comms for a couple of years now, ever since he floated this cover for Ships Of My Fathers. I thought it was a confusing title, but it works. I read the story as soon as it came out and I’ve been waiting for the sequel ever since. The good news: He says it’ll be any day now. The bad news: It’s not today.
I’ve a soft spot in my heart for any SF novel with a trading ship background. When Malcolm Fletcher dies, he places his son Michael in a difficult situation. He’s inherited the ship but can’t fly it, but that’s the easy part. After that it gets dicey.
As always, I liked the characters. Dan sets up a universe filled with mystery and mayhem with a healthy dose of double-cross and skulduggery to keep things moving along. If you grab a sample now, maybe he’ll have the sequel out before you’ve finished.
It could happen…
