Genre: Science Fiction
Michael’s note: I’ve read each of these book sin the series (and paid full price for each) and am ready for the next one. If you enjoy a military-based, realistic, science fiction novel I would highly recommend this box set!
A desperate flight. An endless struggle.
Three hundred ships. Trapped. Relentlessly pursued by the genocidal Regent and its vast robot battlefleets.
Terrence Compton is one of Earth’s greatest admirals, a warrior almost without equal. He and his forces saved Earth from invasion by the cybernetic legions of the First Imperium’s insane computer Regent. But now he and his fleet are far from home, lost and cut off, with nowhere to flee but deeper into the darkness of uncharted space.
Compton and his fleet must find safety…and ultimately a new home. Their journey will take them deep into the heart of the First Imperium, to the silent, windswept worlds where the ancient race that built the Regent once dwelled…and uncover the lost secrets of its disappearance 500,000 years ago. And find a way to destroy the Regent, to rid the universe of the insane machine once and for all.
Includes the full novels Into the Darkness, Shadows of the Gods, and Revenge of the Ancients.

About the Author:
I’m a lifetime Northeasterner, and I currently live in New York City, where I write from my apartment…and continue to fill small notebooks with ideas for future books. I’ve been reading science fiction and fantasy for just about as long as I’ve been reading, so, of course, when I started to write, that’s where I ended up. It’s been a great ride so far!
My tastes as a reader are fairly varied and eclectic, but I’d say my favorites are military and dystopian science fiction, space opera, alternate history, and epic fantasy, usually a little bit gritty. I also read a lot of non-fiction, mostly history. I write a lot of science fiction with military themes, but also other SF and some fantasy as well. I like complex characters and lots of backstory and action. Honestly, I think world-building is the heart of science fiction and fantasy, and since that is what I’ve always been drawn to as a reader, that is what I write.
Among other things, I write the bestselling Crimson Worlds series and the Far Stars series published by Harper Voyager.
I’ve been an investor and real estate developer for a long time (mostly retired from it now), a fiction author more recently. When I’m not writing, I enjoy traveling, running, hiking, reading. I love hearing from readers and always answer emails. I think you stop growing as a writer if you stop listening to those who read your books.
