Approaching TAU CETI—Book Released Soon

Published November 8, 2011 in Writing - 1 Comment

My new hard science fiction story TAU CETI, with sequel novelette written by Steven Savile, arrives November 22.

The generation ship Beacon has voyaged for two centuries to reach a new planet at Tau Ceti, but just as the Beacon is about to arrive at their new home away from home, distant Earth develops faster-than-light ships…and a ruthless dictator wants to lay claim to their dream.

TAU CETI launches a new line from Arc Manor, the “Stellar Guild” series, that teams a bestelling author with up-and-coming talent. The book will be released in print and eBook formats on November 22.  PRE-RELEASE SPECIAL: Arc Manor has offered a special pre-order discount for the eBook version at $2.99 (instead of $4.99), if you order in the next week.  EVEN MORE SPECIAL PRE-RELEASE SPECIAL: My fans also get another 15% discount off the $2.99 price if they enter the coupon code of DIRKEV, if you order before November 15.  Go to www.PPickings.com and pre-order.
