December isn’t that far off really. In celebration of one of science fiction’s most beloved franchises, an updated edition of the acclaimed Ships of the Line hardcover collection in the last month of 2014.
“They dared to risk it all in a skiff of reeds or leather, on a ship of wood or steel, knowing the only thing between them and certain death was their ship. To explore, to seek out what lay beyond the close and comfortable, every explorer had to embrace danger. And as they did so, what arose was a mystical bond, a passion for the ships that carried them. From the very first time humans dared to warp the fabric of space, escaping from the ashes of the third World War, they also created ships. These vessels have become the icons of mankind’s desire to rise above the everyday, to seek out and make the unknown known. And these ships that travel the stellar seas have stirred the same passions as the ones that floated in the oceans.”
High praise and lofty words for ships that never existed in a future of fantasy. One seriously geeky one! This book will be available on December 2nd for $18.98 as a hardcover and Kindle Edition ($12.74) on Amazon. Enjoy!
