OK, that's such a good deal I'm going to buy it, even though neither my TBR pile nor my 2013 challenge thanks me for it!
Bought and now read. Not as good as the other two books I've read, but not bad either. It is a little dated, as any story written recently would depict the tech differently. The plot was a little weak — more Amazing Stories than Analog SFF. But it kept my attention enough to read it in a day.

I'll be getting more of his books as my TBR list allows.

I agree totally. For a book written in the 70s, the technology seems outdated now, and the book has no aspirations to great literature. It was meant purely as an exciting story, and I'm glad it seemed to work for you on that level.

I do like the character of Dev Korrell, though, and I've just started work on a long-delayed sequel called Spacer's Holiday. I'll have to keep it consistent with the first book, but I'll try to make it as modern as possible.

Read an Ebook Week

Joining the Smashwords Read an Ebook Week celebration (March 3-9) again this year, I've once more made Assault on the Gods half price for the duration of the sale (as are all my booklength titles).

More exciting news: I've just made a deal to convert it into an audiobook. Publication should be in a couple of months, and I'm very excited.

Stephen:

Just wanted to say that I really appreciate you participating in Smashwords promotion for Read an Ebook Week.

Earlier this week I bought the entire Parsina saga because I love Arabian Knights-style fantasy and the pricing was irresistible.

However, I hadn't realized that you had written the Doc Smith Family d'Alembert series! I have fond memories of reading two of the books in high school (they were the only ones I could find, living in a small rural town and all) ... but learning that the Agents of Isis is a "close cousin" of the original series and with the magic of instant purchasing and downloading via the internet, the entire series is now in my library.

That has about tapped out my budget for the time being, but I expect more of your works will be in my library soon.

I can't wait to dive in! Best of luck with your new work!

Thank you, Bill. I hope you enjoy both series. They're very different from one another in flavor, but I hope I managed to capture the same sense of adventure, excitement, and fun in each of them. I find it hard to write a book I'm not personally enjoying, and I hope my enjoyment will catch fire with the readers as well. Pleasant reading!

New ebook cover for Assault on the Gods

I've just replaced the ebook cover on Assault on the Gods. The new cover now appears immediately on the Smashwords and Kindle editions; as the metadata spreads through the Internet, it will eventually reach the other retailers as well. I hope you like it.
