About the Series: TROJAN
In a near future world created from the reuniting of two disparate groups of Humans, worlds and years apart, the Earthsiders and Nefra come together in a hollow metallic moon called TROJAN.

Nefra (a Yenna word for humans with tails) have some advantages over typical Earthsiders, with large muscular tails, pheromone scenting, and greater life-span. But their world is collapsing under militaristic government and man-made pollution, and so they seek re-union with their origins.

Trojan is large, dense, and hollow. Nefra have developed gravitational technology that far exceeds Earth knowledge, and hints at inter-galactic travel, and perhaps even time travel, to which Trojan, a space-time flat environment, is the key.

Tension between Nefra and Earthsiders ultimately produces Trojans, the gritty people who live inside the hollow moon: the outpost of Earth, the beachhead of Nefra, the world famous weightless hospital serving the most severely injured from both sides, and the promise of greater joint efforts still to come.

Join us in exploring this fascinating new world and its people.

Review by: J C Steel on May 15, 2016 :
Trojan: Hollow Moon of Jupiter follows chronologically from Trojan: Nefra Contact. Humanity has colonised Trojan to ensure that the Nefra can never use it as a beach head to invade Earth. Despite the social unease, and the myriad incorrect theories flying about the Nefra, there are a number of Nefra living among the colonists, mostly working in the armed forces and law enforcement. However, something is mysteriously killing street people, a fact that doesn’t attract much attention until one of the victims doesn’t end up dead – and turns out to be the brother of one of Trojan’s most notorious crime bosses.

Brian Dingle’s characters form the strong point of this book, from the seminarian-turned-crook to the sunny-natured Nefra policewoman who helps to break the string of murders, and the world-building is detailed and convincing. The main points of philosophy are told, rather than shown, which is a shame as they’re good points, but the overall story will gain the reader’s sympathy despite that, with good action scenes and dialogue. The science behind Trojan is also refreshingly well integrated into the plot, placing the story firmly as a science-fiction crime thriller, rather than a crime thriller where the characters happen to have spaceships rather than taxis. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys sci-fi.

Review by: Charles Kaluza on Sep. 5, 2015 :
An entertaining read and I enjoyed the science. The crime scenes were less interesting to me mostly because of my own history of training in Detroit inner city hospitals. This is not a book for the squeamish but an enjoyable read if you enjoy science. The characters are well described and at times maybe more description than needed. I kept trying to guess the next scene but was not successful, which made the read more interesting.
