What is it about space opera that makes us love it so much? The action, the exotic settings, the colorful characters, the alien species? The promise of countless adventures in the face of the great unknown?
Or is it mostly just the incredible cool factor of all the ships…the technology…the planets…the ray guns and laser swords? In many ways, it's the ultimate escapist genre, transporting us to places and situations that dwarf our everyday troubles. And yet, at its heart, space opera is all about us, what it means to be human, and how we can triumph over our human limitations.
Whatever your reason for loving the genre, this bundle has what you're looking for in abundance. The eleven books I've selected are packed with space opera goodness that will propel you to the furthest reaches of the known and unknown universe while provoking plenty of deep thoughts along the way.
In this set of adventures, you will meet heroes and villains, all larger than life, all roaming myriad worlds and stations and outposts on quests for survival or freedom or love or redemption. You will find yourself with enough thrilling adventures to banish every doldrum, and every one of them comes from the mind of a master writer. When you read this bundle, you will invite the cream of the crop of space opera authors into your imagination. You know you are in for a finely crafted thrill ride when you leap into the starship cockpit alongside David Gerrold, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Dean Wesley Smith, Craig Martelle, or Timothy Zahn. You know you can trust Jeannette Bedard, Ron Collins, Robert J. Szmidt, Dave Walsh, and Lawrence Schoen to take you very far in every way possible.
If you love space opera, science fiction, action-adventure, or great writing regardless of genre, this bundle will light up your universe in all the best ways. Grab your copy during the limited three-week sales window, load your e-reading device or app, and launch yourself into orbit for some breathtaking, soul-stirring, and thought-provoking reading. – Robert Jeschonek
