A Red Peace – Starfire #1 – Spencer Ellsworth – August 22nd, 2017
A Red Peace, first in Spencer Ellsworth’s Starfire trilogy, is an action-packed space opera in a universe where the oppressed half-Jorian crosses have risen up to supplant humanity and dominate the galaxy.
Half-breed human star navigator Jaqi, working the edges of human-settled space on contract to whoever will hire her, stumbles into possession of an artifact that the leader of the Resistance wants desperately enough to send his personal guard after. An interstellar empire and the fate of the remnant of humanity hang in the balance.
Spencer Ellsworth has written a classic space opera, with space battles between giant bugs, sun-sized spiders, planets of cyborgs and a heroine with enough grit to bring down the galaxy’s newest warlord.
Also recently released: Reincarnation Blues by Michael Poore, Thirteen Rising (Zodiac #4) by Romina Russell, The Keep of Ages by Caragh M. O’Brien

Soooo, this is like, the ninth or tenth release of ‘Close Encounters’? How many times can you release the same ding dang movie!!!
As long as they can possibly keep making movies.
I don’t think I’ve even seen this movie, tbh. Maybe I’ve seen part of it, but…yeah.
