Read full description of the books:Matt Dragoneaux the Vigilante hits the star lanes with a fleet of T’Chak Dreadnought warships, aiming to defeat a two million year-old military machine that runs the galaxy for the Anarchate, a ruthless commercial combine that says anarchy is profitable. To that end the Anarchate allows cloneslavery for people, both human and alien. Matt hates the cloneslave harvesters who kidnapped his parents and sisters when he was just 16. Now, with the support of his lifemate Eliana, the AI Mata Hari who resembles the WWI spy and the winged dragon BattleMind, he attacks the Anarchate. But the Anarchate battleglobes are led by an alien captain as sneaky and inventive as Matt. They fight each other with dueling antimatter beams, thermonuke assault sleds and Sun Glow beams that turn planets into miniature stars. Matt finds there is a cost to fighting a war—the lives of artificial intelligences with real emotions are at risk. As are Eliana and his fellow human pilots. Can he be more than a solo Vigilante? Can he ignite a crusade against cloneslavery? And can he lead a real war with pain and casualties? Or will hope, justice and freedom disappear from the galaxy?
Read information about the authorT. Jackson King (Tom) is a professional archaeologist and journalist. He writes hard science fiction, anthropological scifi, dark fantasy/horror and contemporary fantasy/magic realism--but that didn't begin until he was 38.
Before then, college years spent in Paris and in Tokyo led Tom into antiwar activism, hanging out with some Japanese hippies and learning how often governments lie to their citizens. The latter lesson led him and a college buddy to publish the Shinjuku Sutra English language underground tabloid in Japan in 1967. That was followed by helping shut down the UT Knoxville campus in 1968 and a bus trip to Washington D.C. for the Second March on Washington where thousands demanded an end to the Vietnam War.
Temporary sanity returned when Tom worked in a radiocarbon lab at UC Riverside and earned an MA degree in archaeology from UCLA. His interests in ancient history, ancient cultures and journalism got him several government agency jobs that paid the bills, led him to roam the raw landscape of the Western United States, and helped him raise three kids.
A funny thing happened on the way to normality. By the time he was 38 and doing federal arky work in Colorado, Tom's first novel STAR TRADERS was a stage play in his head that wouldn't go away. So he wrote it down. It got rejected. His next novel was published as RETREAD SHOP (Warner Books, 1988). It was off to the writing races and Tom's many voyages of imaginative discovery have led to more published novels, a book of poetry, and a conviction that when humans reach the stars, we will find them crowded with space-going aliens. We will be the New Kids On The Block. This theme appears in much of Tom's short fiction and novel writing, and in the world he has built for STAR VIGILANTE.
His published novels are FREEDOM VS. ALIENS (2015), HUMANS VS. ALIENS (2015), EARTH VS. ALIENS (2014), ALIEN ASSASSIN (2014), THE MEMORY SINGER (2014), ANARCHATE VIGILANTE (2014), GALACTIC VIGILANTE (2013), NEBULA VIGILANTE (2013), SPEAKER TO ALIENS (2013), GALACTIC AVATAR (2013), STELLAR ASSASSIN (2013), THE GAEAN ENCHANTMENT (2012), STAR VIGILANTE (2012), LITTLE BROTHER'S WORLD (2010), ANCESTORS WORLD (1996; with A.C. Crispin; 2012) and RETREAD SHOP (1988; 2012). His poetry has appeared in the collection MOTHER EARTH'S STRETCH MARKS (2009). His short stories have appeared in the collection JUDGMENT DAY AND OTHER DREAMS (2009), and in Analog, Pulphouse, Tomorrow, Absolute Magnitude, The Silver Web, VB Tech Journal, Expanse, Aberrations, Figment, Pandora and Midnight Zoo magazines.
Tom lives in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA. His other writings can be viewed at http://www.amazon.com/author/tjackson... and at http://www.tjacksonking.com/.
