Starbreaker

On a world like ours in the year 21XX (64 years post-Nationfall)…

A soul-searching android rock star and a swashbuckling soprano catgirl struggle against government corruption and fight demons from outer space with a lot of help from their friends: a recovering alcoholic sniper, an arms inspector who would rather be a family man, a gray-hat hacker, a rogue AI researcher, a big fluffy tuxedo cat who can play Texas Hold ‘Em (but can’t bluff), and a wizard in a gray suit who never tells the whole truth.

The Starbreaker Saga is an anti-authoritarian science fantasy epic featuring a diverse and psychologically complex cast written by a metalhead, gamer, and sci-fi fan for metalheads, gamers, and sci-fi fans. It’s a labor of love, an upraised middle finger directed at the status quo, and a pastiche of all of my favorite novels, movies, games, and albums. It’s written for adults, so parents should read it first before letting their kids do so.

I’ve been working on this for over twenty years while also working full-time as a software developer. I published a couple of novels from the saga a few years ago, but afterward fell silent for a while while. Now it’s time I made a comeback, and I want you to be there when it happens.
