The sci-fi thriller Come Dance a Cumbia…with Stars in your Hand! completes “The Chaos Chronicles Trilogy,” a vision of the future that is troubling, inspiring, and astounding. Survivors of the Chaos, the first book in the series, starts in dystopia and ends with hope for a new future on a planet in the 82 Eridani system. In Sing a Samba Galactica, the second book, humans find friendly ETs there and battle unfriendly ones on another colony and Earth, but if you thought they and their ET friends would live happily in the Galaxy’s near-Earth space after the Singer saved the Swarm, you were wrong.
This novel shows why we always have to be vigilant against those whose thirst for power becomes an obsession. The protagonists—the tough, brilliant, and beautiful Silvia Kensington, the old warrior Brent Mueller, bent but not broken, and others—serve as Steve Moore’s Second Foundation; the villain—Dimitri Negrini, an evil genius—his Mule. They become forged in fire by the events portrayed in the first two novels and their struggles in this one. Action, suspense, and intrigue are found in this star-hopping modern sci-fi saga that combines elements of space opera with new perspectives on today’s problems.

About the Author
If you’re reading this, thank you for finding me. Not many people do. Maybe it’s because my name is too common—I thought once about using a nom de plume, but didn’t. Maybe it’s because I don’t get many reviews (you could change that a wee bit). I know you have many books and authors to choose from, so I’m honored and humbled that you are considering or have read one of mine. You’re here on Smashwords because you love to read. Me too. OK, maybe you’re here to give someone an entertaining book—that’s fine too. I love to tell stories, so either way, you’ll be purchasing some exciting fiction, each book unique and full of action, characters, scenes, and themes. Some are national, others international, and some are mixed; some are in the mystery/suspense/thriller category, others sci-fi, and some are mixed-genre. I started telling stories at an early age, making my own comic books before I started school and writing my first novel the summer I turned thirteen—little of that remains (did I hear a collective sigh of relief?). I collected what-ifs and story ideas for years while living in Colombia and different parts of the U.S. (I was born in California and eventually settled on the East Coast after that sojourn in South America), and seeing a bit of the world at scientific events and conferences, always mindful of what should be important to every fiction writer—the human condition. Fiction can’t come alive—even sci-fi—without people (they might be ET people in the case of sci-fi, of course). I started publishing what I'd written about fifteen years ago—short stories, novellas, and novels—we’d become empty-nesters and I was still in my old day-job. I published my first three novels during that time. Now I’m a full-time writer. My wife and I moved from Boston to the NYC area a while back, so both cities can be found in some novels. You can find more information about me at my website: http://stevenmmoore.com. I’m also on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/authorStevenMMoore; and Goodreads. By the way, I don't give away free novels, but you can often find them on sale here. I do give away my short fiction. So does my collaborator A. B. Carolan. See my blog categories "Steve's Shorts," "ABC Shorts," and the list of PDFs free for the asking on my webpage "Free Stuff & Contests" at my website. My mantra has always been the following: If I can entertain one reader with each story, that story is a success. But maybe I can do better than that. After all, you found me! In libris libertas!
