Spinward Fringe Novels

Postby zacharythefirst » Sun Jan 08, 2012 2:56 am

Has anyone read any of the Spinward Fringe books by Randolph Lalonde? The guy has to have a Traveller background. They're light, fun reading, and the First Light Chronicles Omnibus is free. It was good enough that I downloaded his next books on my Nook.

Anyhow, just a little weekend fiction recommendation! :D
Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.

I love those books. They are very fun and quick, light reads.

Read the first freebie. Not bad, although the heroes are too perfect. He's thrown too much tech into the mix, too. IMHO.

Probably, but it's a light read, and fun. Always good to read something with a bit of that Traveller feel thrown in. Not E.C. Tubb, but not bad, either!
