New Space Opera Series - Ockham's Razor

Remember how sf novels used to be only 40,000 or 60,000 words, and they'd appear in series, like EC Tubb's Dumarest books, or Brian Stableford's Hooded Swan series, or even Jo Clayton's Diadem series. Nowadays, genre novels are all huge, 120,000 words or more, and a lot of that is padding to make up the word count. Ebooks don't need to be big, because they don't need fat spines to take up shelf-space and so attract buyers.

The Ockham's Razor series by Keith Sheffield is a space opera series of short novels about the adventures and misadventures of the crew of a small freighter. It should appeal to all fans of Firefly, Neal Asher, Iain M Banks, David Weber, Sharon Lee & Steve Miler, etc.

The first book is To Catch A Thief, and it's available now:

UK - only £3.99: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Catch-Thief-...615389&sr=8-11

US - only $4.99: http://www.amazon.com/Catch-Thief-Oc...eith+sheffield

The second book, Cowards Of Us All, will be published in August, and the third book, The First Law, in November. Subsequent books will follow at intervals of 4 to 6 months.

The second book in the Ockham's Razor series, Cowards Of Us All, has now been published.

Quote:
In TO CATCH A THIEF, the first book of the Ockham's Razor series, Ockham found reluctantly found himself agreeing to transport an enforcer working for gang lord Keep to Wiblis. But at least Keep was paying. And Ockham needed the money. Once at Wiblis, they set about looking for the woman who had stolen from Keep. Before they could find her, Ockham and his crew find themselves embroiled in a terrorist plot to blow up the space station and kill an alien ambassador. It takes the disparate skills of all four members of the crew of Razor to save the day - and even then, it's not quite over...
To Catch A Thief was described by upcoming4.me as "surprisingly well written and entertaining scifi story reminiscent, at least to me, of sadly out of print and now forgotten Lucky Starr series of novels by Isaac Asimov". Full review - http://upcoming4.me/news/book-news/r...razor-book-one

UK - only £2.67 - http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_...eith+sheffield
US - only $4.24 - http://www.amazon.com/Cowards-All-Oc...eith+sheffield
