Captain Taylor Trilogy

June 23rd, 2011 by skippy

My old Army roommate wrote a bunch of books. I’ve graciously allowed him to plug his book on my site.

The Captain Taylor Trilogy kicks off with an action packed blast across the stars in Book I: Flight of the Lazarus. Set in the 24th century, Captain Taylor and his deep space scavenging crew are unknowingly set on an adventure of danger and wonder as old evils are plotting their demise! Perilous challenges will await the crew of outcasts, robots, aliens and exiles on every planet as they seek out the meaning of the mystery that could mean the difference between life and death of every sentient life form in the universe! Can the members of the Starship Lazarus survive long enough to learn the secrets of their fates or are they doomed to be swept aside as the impending interstellar genocide extinguishes every star?

Subconsciously constructed on the structure of Joseph Campbell’s Heroes Journey, the story of Captain Taylor and his crew aboard the starship Lazarus is one of hardship, love, loss, wonder, and rebirth. This book begins an epic that spans over two trilogies and two thousand pages!

the first installment Flight of the Lazarus is available on amazon.com for kindle for 99 cents. if you dont have a kindle, ipad, or iphone, you can download the free kindle reader for your pc and get the first chapter for free! if you like what you see, buy it! this is a completely independent project. i don’t have an agent or representation, yet.

The full “Captain Taylor Trilogy” is available on amazon.com if you want more. And for those who really like the story, the second trilogy of the epic will be available before the end of June this year!

If this sounds interesting to you, please buy it through my Associate Store so Amazon will give me money to put my kids through college.

    I would pick the first one of these up if I wasn’t currently reading 4 other series that are new to me.

    By the way, is it in the same kind of Style as Williamson, Ringo, or Weber? I love those guys. Either way, I’ll at least pick up the first one.

    In regards to Weber, I could do with a couple fewer infodumps, otherwise, I love the Honor Harrington books.

    Picked up “Flight of the Lazarus” just now, as I was almost done with the book I was reading. If I like it, I’ll grab the next two. :-)

    I never read the info dumps. I hate to read the first few chapters and then be told that I have to wait 6 months for it to come out. Same reason why I’m not picking up the first half of Rogue by Williamson even though it’s available and I’ve been looking forward to it.


    AFP reply on June 24th, 2011 8:22 am:

    I’m not sure we’re talking about the same thing. I mean info dumps like where he’ll spend a page and a half explaining the intricacies of modern space missile warfare, or regaling you with details of the tonnage and acceleration rates of our heroes’ ships.

    You can skim most of that, of course, just like the in-depth explanations of ships’ rigging in the Horatio Hornblower books. Don’t know a topsail from a lanyard? It really won’t matter, the plot will happen regardless.

    Oh, I thought you were talking about the stuff he puts online( Especially here: http://jiltanith.thefifthimperium.com/). I actually like the in depth explanations. Being a Physics/EE major makes me want to try and understand that kind of thing, and I hate when a book doesn’t even try to explain how something works.

    The “advantages” to getting older, I’m no longer spending a ton of time/money on SF.

    (you read the entire (apparently 1st)WildCards series and you’ll understand)

    Unfortunately, that’s ’cause the attention span & the eyes are going downhill every year a little more.

    (the story still sounds interesting)
