Pax Britannia: Dark Side - you heard it here first!

Yes, that's right, before even Amazon have got hold of it, here's news about the next, next Pax Britannia book, to be published by Abaddon Books next year. Following on from Blood Royal, and the second book in the new Ulysses Quicksilver story arc, is Dark Side...

Escape the rat race of the human race and

Start a new life on the Moon!

You'll find incredible opportunities awaiting industrious individuals in the off-world colonies on Earth's most popular emigration destination.

And if you're simply looking to get away from it all at the Empire's most exclusive holiday resort, with weekly flights departing from the London spaceports, let us bring you the Moon in style!

From the architectural splendour of Luna Prime to the unrivalled calm of Tranquility and Serenity City, there really is something for everyone on Earth's favourite satellite.

See your world as never before when you experience Earthrise over the Caucasus Mountains. Visit the Island of the Winds and wonder at the Peaks of Eternal Light. Marvel at the magnificence of the Moon massifs and charter a solar yacht to voyage across the mysterious Sea of Dreams.

Or if it's adventure you're looking for, why not seek out old enemies and win new allies as you hunt for the killer of your nearest and dearest? While you're at it, investigate industrial espionage undertaken on an audacious scale. Partake in a breathless race against time across the dust deserts of the Ocean of Storms and witness the breaching of Man's final frontier firsthand.

So what are you waiting for? Murder and mayhem await you on the dark side of the Moon. But remember, in space no one can hear you hullabaloo.

And, as a special treat, here's ace artist Mark Harrison's cover for the book too, shown here for the first time anywhere!

Wonderful news! I'm a fan of the PAX BRITANNIA series.

Just read my post The World of PAX BRITANNIA which includes a lot of information except the Dark Side.

Nice. Looking forward to this.

Glad to hear it. I'm looking forward to writing it... And the one after that!

BTW - I used to teach someone called Josh Reynolds, but I have a feeling it wasn't you. ;-)
