New Novel: Landfall

Credit: Martin Turner
Kevin Reimund has submitted the first part of his novella, Landfall. Here's his description:

Landfall describes Mars before it was colonized, when Julian Light is named commander of the Gossamer Albatross, the ship that brings the second batch of humans to Mars. It will eventually encompass the massive civil war on Mars during the terraforming debates and the rebuilding of the Martian economy and industry while Mars is terraformed.

Then in 2087, what I am writing about now takes place: The Martian War of Independence, which will consist of 4 seperate novellas describing different aspects of the same war. "A Call to Arms" will deal with the beginning of the war, "A Time to Stand", "Rocks and Shoals" and "The Storming of the Battery" deal with the peak of the Martian War of Independence and "Sacrifice of Angels" deals with the ending of the war with the Martian occupation of Luna.

On the side, "The ZzapWorks War", the only one of these stories not yet started, deals with the aspects of the war on Earth between the multi-planetary corporation ZzapWorks and their support of the Martians during the Martian War of Independence. I should be submitting "A Call to Arms", "A Time to Stand", "Rocks and Shoals", "The Storming of the Battery" and "Sacrifice of Angels" around February or April vacation.
