THE STARS CAME BACK: BACK FROM THE DEAD is part space-western, the story of folks just trying stay alive, seeking work to earn money for repairs to get to the next job, with no shortage of action and adventure along the way. It is military sci-fi, featuring a company of mercenaries, spaceship combat, mortar and rifle combat, spear-and-shield battle, and post-traumatic stress disorder. And it is a philosophical investigation, pondering everything from the lessons of Achilles to how one stops a bar fight with earplugs.
BACK FROM THE DEAD is the prose rewrite of the first half of the screenplay-format version of the original THE STARS CAME BACK. Today and tomorrow we are making it available for only $1.99 for anyone who previously purchased the screenplay-format version but would like to read the prose version as well. It is available in both EPUB and Kindle formats. 235 pages, DRM-free.
Beginning Wednesday, it will be available for $4.99 from Amazon.
