Set the Galaxy on Fire

A Tales of the Orion War Anthology

The battle of Bollam's World is over, but war now looms over the Orion Arm of the galaxy. The arrival of the most powerful ship in human space is about to set the galaxy on fire.

Bollam's War

The battle of the five fleets rages in the space surrounding Kithari in the Bollam's World system. A specter, barely detectable, slips through the battle, sowing dormant missiles and unleashing devastating attacks on the enemy.

New Canaan

Tanis Richards has spent half her life on the Intrepid, guiding the great colony ship, and its two million passengers, across hundreds of light-years. She has risked life, limb and those dearest to her to get this far.

Now she’s within reach of her goal; the New Canaan System, and a normal, stable life. The kind she's only dreamed about. The only remaining hurdle is to strike a deal with the Transcend Alliance and trade the Intrepid’s advanced technology for the star system.

If only things were so easy.

Orion Rising

The war will come—it is inevitable.

After centuries of struggle, the ISS Intrepid has finally brought its colonists to New Canaan, a star system better than any they imagined. They made landfall and began to build their new home, far from the troubles of Sol and the Inner Stars.

Yet no one in the Orion Arm has forgotten that the colonists possess the most valuable technology known to humankind, least of all Tanis Richards—as she secretly prepares to defend New Canaan against any and all aggressors.

The Scipio Alliance

The Battle for New Canaan is over, but the war has just begun…

Tanis and Sera have taken the I2 to Khardine, the new capital of the Transcend, and must now travel to the Inner Stars and meet with Scipian Empress, Diana—who they hope will be an ally to the Transcend.

With the Trisilieds Kingdom, the Hegemony of Worlds, and the Nietzschean Empire all aligned with the Orion Guard—not to mention a civil war brewing in the Transcend—they will need all the help they can get to secure the Inner Stars. 

Attack on Thebes

The drums of war thunder across the stars...

The final negotiations between the Silstrand Alliance and the Scipian Empire are complete, and it's time for Tanis and Sera to part ways. 

War on a Thousand Fronts

The Allied fleet has stopped the Nietzscheans at Pyra, but the battlefront grows wider day by day. 

While Sera distributes the Transcend's fleets to protect the alliance, Tanis must come to grips with what happened to her on Pyra's surface. In addition, Bob conveys a number of hard truths that will force her to re-think her role in humanity's future. 

But the allies' enemies are not sitting idle. General Greer, Justin, the Caretaker, and Airtha are all advancing plans to see their visions of the future come true.

In the core of the galaxy, a darkness begins to feed....

But their enemies have not been idle.
