News From John

April 2018

The second book in the Genesis Fleet series, Ascendant, will be published in May, after Vanguard. The third and (at this point) final book in the trilogy will be Triumphant, in May 2019.

Following that, I intend returning to the Lost Fleet itself, telling more stories about Black Jack, Tanya, and the others. The people of the Lost Stars will also be playing roles!

The five comics of the Corsair series are done. Number five is available now. The collection of all five Corsair comics will be available in mid-April.

The Legacy of Dragons trilogy is almost complete, with Daughter of Dragons and Blood of Dragons out, and Destiny of Dragons published as an audiobook in January.

The next series set on Dematr is currently being offered to publishers. It begins with Pirate Of The Prophecy, with the legendary Jules telling her own story for the first time.

The Genesis Fleet And The "Future" Of The Lost Fleet

The Genesis Fleet: Vanguard coverAfter eleven books in The Lost Fleet and Beyond The Frontier in the last ten years, Leviathan marks not an end, but a pause point. I need time to figure out where to go next, how far forward to take the story, and what to explore that will involve new adventures and new challenges. (Besides, Black Jack really deserves a break.)

While I'm working on that, I'll be writing a new trilogy set in the Lost Fleet universe. The Genesis Fleet will be set centuries before the events in The Lost Fleet, showing the events, challenges, and people who led a bunch of fiercely independent star systems to first form the Alliance, as well as the first clashes between the Alliance and the expanding Syndicate Worlds.

There is more of a frontier feel to this time, with star systems still being colonized and closer ties to the older star systems and Earth itself. But it's still the Lost Fleet universe, with all of the elements that have made that series stand out. More to follow!

The Lost Stars: Shattered SpearJust Published
The Lost Stars:
Shattered Spear

Book four of The Lost Stars was published in May, 2016. Many unfinished issues are finally resolved. Some of those in the story will not survive. Others will, at last, figure out the answers to questions they have long wrestled with. Shattered Spear marks both an end and a beginning.

The Lost Fleet Comic Series

This is still in development and, hopefully, the first issue will come out in 2016. The Lost Fleet comic series will feature new stories I've written that take place outside the novels of The Lost Fleet and Beyond The Frontier. Some of the questions asked about what happened to certain characters may finally be answered.
