Biography

S Rodger Bock is the author of five novels. His most recent is Revolution's Requiem, a continuation of the Edenix Cycle. This is the first book in a new Trilogy that covers a pivotal time of upheaval on the Eden IX colony. More on that in a moment.

Bock has also published Unfolding, a fictional, present-day novel about a Edeanna McKinley, a woman who finds herself thrust into chaos, She's on the run and trying to rebuild her life at the same time.

The Edenix Cycle is a series that follows the lives of human colonists on a virgin world cut off from the rest of humanity.

Morgan's Curse, the first trilogy of the cycle, follows the story of Morgan, who has a twisted plan which wreaks havoc on what had been a peaceful, if untamed world. Bock breaks his trilogies into Acts.
Act I: Acrimony Arising - follows Dirk Bayo, a lone hunter who leads the charge to chase kidnappers and rescue their victims,
Act II: Edenix Asunder - we watch as Morgan's plan is slowly put into place. The dramatic ending will shock you, and
Act III: Queen's Reign - brings a conclusion to the arc where Morgan finally realizes her disturbing dream.

Selim's Stratagem is the second trilogy of the cycle and jumps 400 years into the future of the colony. Violent intrigue abounds in Act I: Revolution's Requiem. Bock is currently working on Act II: Dominion's Dirge due out late 2017.

"The Providence of Rudy Nes" is a short story that has been compared to a webisode, following some of the same characters who appear in the novels. "The Pennell Predicament" is a story Bock wrote inspired by a series of promotional tweets.

Bock has written extensively over the years and is excited to get more to his fans.

What are you working on next?
I'm right in the middle of the second Trilogy of the Edenix Cycle. We pick up the story about 400 years after Queen’s Reign. All I’ll say is things are heating up on this little planet way out on the edge of human settlements. Completing that will be my focus and passion for a while yet. Look for the latest release here on Smashwords. While you’re waiting on me, you can pick up the first Trilogy and get caught up, or read my popular free short stories available exclusively on Smashwords. Check out my stand-alone contemporary novel, Unfolding too.
Can you give us the backstory for your latest novel, Revolution's Requiem?
Deception. Oh, how I am tempted to leave the answer right there! I’ve always been intrigued with revolutions and the tumultuous changes that come with them. They are, I think, rich fodder for drama. The conditions that lead to revolt are often the concentration of power in the hands of a few. There are parallels with our current times.
