I’m a composer, and I always enjoy writing little soundtracks to my books! Given how important A BIG SHIP AT THE EDGE OF THE UNIVERSE is to me, I figured I’d make a nice soundtrack for all of you. You can listen on almost any streaming service you’d like, or if you’re feeling generous, pick up a copy for yourself!
“This is fantastic stuff, in every sense of the word: characters, magic, tech, varied planetary settings, onboard ship life, the history of the galactic wars, and even a little sex and romance are woven in so seamlessly, there is never a dull moment. I’m in awe at the number of narrative balls White tosses into the air (some of them arcing pretty high) without dropping one.” (5/5 stars)
“Injected with a forward thrusting narrative and exceptional worldbuilding, Big Ship is both fresh and familiar at the same time, mashing up the spellcasting of dark fantasy realms with the hardware and heroics of old fashioned military sci-fi. With infinite care and inspiration, White has created a fully formed outer-space destination detailed with sparkling Eidolon crystal dust, intoxicating elixir baths, futuristic race cars, interstellar combat, lesbian commandos, mysterious assassins, and one fabled lost starship.”
“The world is incredible, the adventure engrossing, and the combat will have you on the edge of your seat. Big Ship is the strongest debut I have read in 2018 so far and I can’t wait to get my hands on the sequel as soon as I can.”
“Space battles, magical duels, and whiplash filled racing keeps this novel going at rick-roaring speed. You really feel like you are in the midst of all of the action and are left bloody and sweating by the time the battles are over.”
Once more, I am in awe of Connor Goldsmith, who sold my three-book series, “The Salvagers,” to Orbit, a major SF publisher.
I’m extremely grateful for his help, as well as to Brit Hvide, my new editor, who sees my story with the same eyes I do. I know we’re going to make some brilliant books together.
And for those fans who loved The Gearheart, get ready! While the book isn’t in the same universe, it’s a spiritual successor. Kind of like Xenosaga to Xenogears, to quote my PS1-literate agent. If you’re ready for magic, adventure and gunfights (in space), you came to the right place!
I’ll keep you all in the loop over the coming year about our progress and when you can expect to read it. For more about the first book, go here!
