Like every author says in their bio, I’ve had stories bouncing around in my head for basically forever.
Action and conflict have always fascinated me. People who put their lives and bodies on the line to take up arms against a sea of troubles as the immortal bard said. And so, like any good author, I did my research.
But I don’t learn from books and interviews as effectively as I learn from rolling up my sleeves and getting my hands dirty. With the aid of some filmmaker and stuntman friends I’ve made over the last decade I’ve been doing my research at the sharp end.
Dust of the Earth and Dimestore Wuxia are new expressions of the same passion for action.
Federation Ranger Penny Dreadful has her target in her sights. The man who taught her everything she knew is on a backwater planet name Saint Aloysius and nothing in the spiral arm is going to stop her bringing him home in chains. Not even the wanted terrorist tied up in her ship’s hold is going to get in her way.
Penny Dreadful is a Federation Ranger and a veteran of the Civil War. She wanders the edge of known space, writing wrongs and enforcing the Federation's Justice. Wu Gang Shu fights for a free Periphery, the side that lost the Civil War. Some call him a Freedom Fighter, others a Terrorist. Wu prefers the word: Revolutionary.
