Welcome to the Terran Republic of the Twenty-Second Century

Just as humanity finally reaches out to the stars, it is challenged by several “exosapient” species whose motivations are as unusual as their physical forms. Troubleshooters like Caine Riordan—as well as commandos, crewmen, and correspondents—must contend with both humans and aliens during the high-stakes exploration, statecraft, and warfare that churn and change our post-contact world.

But no world is defined solely by the main characters who occupy center-stage. Lost Signals digs deep into the lives and struggles of those beyond the spotlight. Twenty new voices tell twenty gripping stories that blur the line between fact and fiction in the Consolidated Terran Republic, where high-stakes exploration, statecraft, and warfare has played out over four national bestsellers. Those same novels have also garnered nominations for the Nebula (three), the Dragon (two), and won the Compton Crook award. Here’s what others have said about them:

“(The books) blend ruthless political pragmatism, advanced aliens with subtle and dangerous agendas, and human courage, determination, and sacrifice into an action-filled story that keeps readers up late. Very late, in my case. You should already have Chuck Gannon on your shelves. If you don’t have him there, rectify your oversight immediately!”—David Weber

“Chuck Gannon writes the kind of science fiction we all grew up on: rousing, mind-expanding, pulse-pounding sagas of spaceships and aliens. He’s a terrific writer, and we’re lucky to have him.”—Robert J. Sawyer

“If we meet strong aliens out there, will we suffer the fate of the Aztecs and Incas, or find the agility to survive? Gannon fizzes with ideas about the dangerous politics of first contact.”—David Brin

“This one’s a tidal wave—can’t put it down.”—Jack McDevitt

“The plot is intriguing and then some. Well-developed and self-consistent; intelligent readers are going to like it.”—Jerry Pournelle

“Gannon’s whiz-bang . . . Terran Republic interstellar adventure delivers(.) . . . The charm of Caine’s harrowing adventure lies in Gannon’s attention to detail. …The dozens of key characters, multiple theaters of operations, and various alien cultures all receive the appropriate amount of attention. The satisfying resolution is enhanced by the promise of more excitement to come in this fascinating far-future universe.”—Publishers Weekly Starred Review

“There are space battles, daring emergency landings, desperate quests, hand-to-hand combat, and double-and-triple crosses. It’s an engrossing read, . . . an intergalactic thrill-ride.”—Fantasy and Science Ficton Book and Audiobook Reviews

“This is science-fiction adventure on a grand scale.”—Kirkus

“Military sf fans should love this series that combines intense action and well-plotted tactical engagements. . . .  Suggest to fans of . . . David Weber and John Ringo, or those who enjoy Jack Campbell’s Lost Fleet series.”—Library Journal
