Overview

The Backworlds Books 1, 2, and 3: The Backworlds, Stopover at the Backworlds' Edge, and Boomtown Craze.

In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe. This set contains the first 3 novels in the science fiction series, The Backworlds. A space opera adventure.

The Backworlds
After the war with the Foreworlders, Backworlders scatter across the remaining planets. Competition is fierce, and pickings are scant. Scant enough that Craze's father decides to improve his fortunes by destroying his son. He tells his only boy their moon isn't big enough for them both and gives Craze a ticket for the next transport leaving the space dock.

Stopover at the Backworlds' Edge
Revenge is on Craze's mind. He chews on it every day along with the relentless dust on Pardeep Station. He dreams of grander wealth, enough to make his father choke. That's the dream consuming him when the interstellar portal opens, spitting out a ship that should no longer exist. A battleship spoiling for a fight. Yet the war with the Foreworlds ended two generations ago.

Boomtown Craze
Craze is only days away from the grand opening of his shiny new tavern. The starway opens, bringing in a loony Backworlder intent on mucking up his carefully laid plans. Gaunt and trembling, she claims her spaceship is possessed. She also has a connection to the underworld, threatens to end Craze's prosperity before it begins.

Editorial Reviews

ASMG Emagazine
The author did an absolutely tremendous job describing alien races and different worlds in this well-written and entertaining story. I found Craze endearing; for some reason he reminded me of Shrek without the green skin. The imagery is vivid, the characters original as well as convincing, and the worlds fascinating. If you're looking for an entertaining escape into a scifi-fantasy world this is a great place to start with numerous sequels available so you won't have to look anywhere besides
Jason Weisberger
"This is a fun, fast paced novel that reminded me a bit of early Heinlein, Have Spacesuit Will Travel, style story telling. It is very short and sets up well for further adventures."
