Ten books are under development for ‘The Korpes File Series,’ and the first three are virtually complete.
DYSTOPIAN SCIENCE FICTION
THE KORPES FILE – Released March 3rd, 2017
As if being born Diasporan wasn’t enough, Technician Nash Korpes had the bad luck to resemble his Tyran ancestors almost identically in both form and manner. These traits, though highly prized by the special projects division at the shadowy Korlune Military Research and Development, mark him as a specter from their warlike past. With only his intellect holding his sanity in place, he wages a private war against the entire socioeconomic status quo, and begins to uncover the truth that threatens them all.
THE KORPES AGENDA – Release date March 31st, 2019
Nash Korpes has officially escaped the clutches of Korlune Military Research and Development by securing the patronage of William Harlo and landing a prominent position for himself and Davis Trent at Harlo-Fyre. On the surface, things appear bright, but dark forces from his past still stalk Nash, and new ones emerge, seeking to destroy him. As the line between friend and foe blurs, will he have time to complete his agenda before someone uncovers his plans and ends his quest for justice forever?
Book covers will be revealed a month before the book is released.
THE KORPES (?) – undergoing massive revisions
Nash is MIA, Korlune teeters on the brink of Civil War, and those who were left to pick up the pieces band together in unexpected ways. There’ll be more of Clan Evora, the Seep, the Collective, Nash, of course, as well as a tour of Ankoresh, the country to the South.
Due to the ‘Butterfly Effect’, subtle changes I made in book one caused ripples in book two and have now reached tsunami proportions for book three; this means I have to rewrite most of it.
I was hoping to make it available in 2020, but it may be as late as 2021.
Due to circumstances quasi-beyond my control, the publication of book 3, The Korpes Identity, has been moved up to autumn 2022.
MORE PLANNED FOR THE SERIES
ALL TITLES PAST THIS POINT ARE PLACEHOLDERS
TALES FROM THE BBS – undergoing first revisions
“Tales From The BBS” dips back in time to just before book one. Two young engineers detect an anomalous, repeating signal, amid the background static generated by their radioactive world. It leads them to a millennium-old archive, a link to a time before the conflicts that ravaged their world. Together, they fight to keep their discovery secret from those that would use it for destruction and endeavor to restore this missing link to their collective past.
THE SHARD – undergoing first revisions Threatened by an inter-dimensional war, the Shard’s one thought was to save their collective from the aliens. When an accident in slip-steam forces them into hostile space, the damaged Shard ship is forced to crash land on the planet, Tamyrh. What happens next changes the world forever.
CLAN DESTINE – draft version This book explores the roots of the infamous combined Korlo and Diasporan militant group.
CLAN EVORA – draft version This book explores the roots of the infamous Cult.
The remaining two lack a title and cover concept, but the core concepts for both are in place.
Here are older’ concept covers’ for books 1 and 2. I might turn them into graphic novels or motion books.
