We have some exciting news for you fleshy readers today! Myke Cole, author of the Shadow Ops series and Tor Publishing’s The Armoured Saint will be joining us here at Angry Robot with his own contribution to the robot uprising, the beginning of a military space opera series the likes fall of which we have never seen before.
You’ve suffered alongside characters through fights, rebellions, intergalactic wars, maybe even some racy space politics, but you’ve never lived through this; Myke is bringing the US Coast Guard to space!
His new series SAR-1 will be published by your mechanical overlords in 2019, so you have plenty of time to hype yourself up. Here’s a short summary of the first book to help you do just that:
A lifelong Search-and-Rescuewoman, Coast Guard Captain Jane Oliver is ready for a peaceful retirement. But when tragedy strikes and Oliver loses her husband and her plans for the future, she finds herself thrust into a role she’s not prepared for. Suddenly at the helm of the Coast Guard’s elite SAR-1 lunar unit, Oliver is the only woman who can prevent the first lunar war in history, a conflict that will surely consume not only the Moon, but Earth as well.
We here at Angry Robot are thrilled to be working with Myke on his first foray into the wide worlds of space opera, and we just can’t wait for 2019! To hear all about the origins of the series, head over to Tor.com to read a blog post from the man himself.
