Steve do I need to read Berserker first?

Never mind just bought both
You don't really need to... both stories stand on their own. But Berserker obviously goes into detail on how Kestral and the crew got together in the first place.

I love it when a new Steve Jordan book comes out!

Just bought The Lens (plus a copy of Factory Orbit for a friend). I really enjoyed Berserker, and am looking forward to the sequel!

Glad to finally see a second book. The first book was crying for a sequel.

BTW, slightly off topic, I'm reading Factory Orbit right now and noticed some typos (mostly with an organization acronym). Any way to let you know about them?

There are a number of typos in that one... it's one that I'm overdue to edit! Feel free to e-mail me at stevej@stevejordanbooks.com.

Read about it on the frontpage... and just saved it on my harddisc.

This is shopping at its best!

In a lot of ways, it's also producing at its best. Being able to go from creating a product, to selling it directly to consumers, is in many ways the craftsman's ideal situation. In this case, there are no middlemen to cream off the profits, no fees or tasks forced upon you by an industry or organization beyond your control.

Of course, there can be a downside... for instance, my lack of using an editor on this novel has resulted in a few typos that have crept in after my once- and twice-over. However, the great thing about e-books is that I was informed about those typos immediately, by my consumers. That means I can go back and fix those typos, then re-release the book to the public within a day. (Well, in this case, a few days... bear with me!) And the consumer simply replaces the file, does not landfill the old one, and enjoys it as if it were the original.

That's the power of the digital medium combined with the 21st century communications infrastructure, a power the print world will never match!

I was away for a couple of days.. and yahoo!!! A brand new Kestral Voyage awaits!

My only dilemma is Allen Steele's Coyote Horizon came out the same day on FW. Which to read first... hmmm.

As far as dilemma's go, I like this one!

I was contacted last night by a D.C. newspaper editor, working on an article on e-books... he told me that he had heard I was "one of D.C.'s finest" authors! (Hokay, who here knows someone on the CityPaper?) He's expressed a desire to review one of my books, so I need to decide which one to send him. Any thoughts from the gallery?
