Author: John Hindmarsh
Genre: Science Fiction
What can one man do to recover his home?
A small planet, its wealth hidden – or so they thought; peaceful, although its inhabitants are prepared to fight for what is theirs—they call it Homeworld.
A traitor helps a rival house in its attempt to capture the planet. The ruling family fights back and most are killed or captured. Steg de Coeur, directed by The Glass Complex, an ancient and self-aware computer complex, flees the planet. He gradually learns of his ability to communicate with computers, friendly, hostile, or alien.
But he must ignore the siren songs of the stars.
He is pursued by false warrants and traitorous Imperial forces.
Their objective—his death.

About the Author:
John Hindmarsh was born in 1785. From Wikipedia – Rear-Admiral Sir John Hindmarsh RN (1785 – 1860) was a naval officer and the first Governor of South Australia, from December 1836 to July 1838.
During the Battle of the Nile on 1 August 1798, the fire on board the French line-of-battle ship l’Orient put the Bellerophon (1786) in danger; all the other officers on the quarterdeck on the Bellerophon were killed or wounded, so 13-year-old Midshipman John Hindmarsh gathered some of the crew, cut the anchor cables, and raised a spritsail to get the ship moving.
You realize I write fiction? The above is all true – except I’m a different John Hindmarsh.
Yes, I write science fiction and thrillers, sometimes with crossover. Well, you need a thrill in your SF and an occasional touch of science in your thrillers. I’m Australian, and now live in the High Sierra region of California, where I’m writing full time. I could be hiking, kayaking or skiing, when I’m not writing.
My books generally are written with an American voice [well, I try], although I prefer to write British English. So I get mixed up – in any event, I claim aluminium is the correct word.
