The strange planet known as Tanegawa’s World is owned by TransRift Inc, the company with the absolute monopoly on interstellar travel. Hob landed there ten years ago, a penniless orphan left behind by a rift ship. She was taken in by Nick Ravani and quickly became a member of his mercenary biker troop, the Ghost Wolves.
Ten years later, she discovers that the body of Nick’s brother out in the dunes. Worse, his daughter is missing, taken by shady beings called the Weathermen. But there are greater mysteries to be discovered – both about Hob and the strange planet she calls home.
And coming soon (April 1!) from Queen of Swords Press–the triumphant return of Captain Ramos, infamous pirate, detective, and all around pain-in-the-ass. Pre-order now.
Captain Marta Ramos, the most notorious pirate in the Duchy of Denver, has her hands full, what between fascinating murder mysteries, the delectable and devious Delilah Nimowitz, Colonel Geoffrey Douglas (the Duke of Denver’s new head of security) and her usual activities: piracy, banditry and burglary. Not to mention the horrors of high society tea parties. In contrast, Simms, her second in command, longs only for a quiet life, filled with tasty sausages and fewer explosions. Or does he? Join Captain Ramos, Simms and their crew as they negotiate the perils of air, land and drawing room in a series of fast-paced adventures in a North America that never was.
Hi, my name is Alex Acks (aka Alex Wells) and I’m a writer, geologist, and sharp-dressed sir. I’ve had short stories in Strange Horizons, Lightspeed, Daily Science Fiction, Shimmer, and more. I’m an active member of SFWA, the Northern Colorado Writer’s Workshop, and Codex. I’m represented by DongWon Song at HMLA.
I love movies, nerdy things, cats, and writing, and I blog about all this and more depending on my mood. I’ve written film reviews for Mothership Zeta and Strange Horizons, and if you want to support my compulsive and sometimes ridiculous note-taking, I’ve got a Patreon for that. I’m also a host on the Skiffy and Fanty podcast, where I talk about movies and other nerdy scifi and fantasy things.
I live in Denver (where I bicycle, drink tea, and twirl my ever-so-dapper mustache) with my two
furry little bastards cats.
Want quick writing news without having to wade through my blog? I’ve got a mailing list for that. Want access to the other half of my film reviews and some extra writing? There’s a Patreon for that. Curious about my daily nonsense? Vlog is here!
If you’re curious about the distinctive way I dress, some basic information for you here!
