Terra Nova: The Wars of Liberation is a great new anthology edited by Tom Kratman and set in his Carrera series. I can’t say enough good things about the people involved in this project. Tom Kratman put together an elite crew or writers with amazing backgrounds and let us play in his universe [(that’s one of the neatest things about being a writer, BTW: you get to create your own universe(s)].
This great line up includes an AFA-graduate helicopter pilot, a Navy Seal, a genius brain scientist, a West Point artillery officer, a cyber-security specialist, former South African special forces and the Colonel himself. And for some reason, me. 😉
Baen gave us the opportunity to talk about our stories in their recent podcast. Give it a listen. And buy the book.
New stories set in Tom Kratman’s hard-hitting Carrera military SF serieshttps://www.baen.com/terra-nova.html
“Send us your tired, your poor,” says the inscription at the base of the great statue, “your huddled masses yearning to be free.”
But the future of the colony planet, Terra Nova, and its relations with Old Earth is far more a case of “boot out your tired, your poor, your dissidents and troublemakers. Use us for a dumping ground for all your problems. Go ahead and abandon these here.” This may have been fine, too, but for the UN and its corrupt bureaucracy insisting on maintaining control and milking the new world and its settlers, willing and unwilling both, bone dry.
Contained herein are tales of the history of Mankind’s future first colony, from the first failed attempt at colonization, to the rise in crime, to the rise in terrorism, to its descent into widespread civil war and rebellion . . . and ultimately liberation. As with most of human history, this history is messy, with good men and women turning bad, bad men and women inadvertently doing good, and blood flowing in the streets.
