The New Diving Novel Is Only Weeks Away!

Written By: Kristine Kathryn Rusch - Aug• 27•13

Skirmishes ebook cover webI know a lot of you have been waiting for the new Diving universe novel. It’ll be released on September 17, 2013, and it’s already getting great reviews.

“A combination of first-person and third-person narrative and flashback segments makes this a complex and compelling story. It’s like having three tales in one, with an added peek into the bad guys’ activities, all of them intriguing, classic science fiction. It leaves the reader eager to explore this universe again and see what will happen next with these characters.”

—RT Book Reviews 

“Expect surprises, plot twists, and space wreck diving danger as Boss, Coop and their respective crews must confront the past in a bid to control the future. They may be out-gunned, but Boss’s knowledge when it comes to diving ancient Dignity Vessels is unmatched.”

—AstroGuyz.com

Here’s the back cover copy:

The answers Captain Jonathon “Coop” Cooper and the crew of the Ivoire seek lie in the Boneyards. But they must wait for Boss and her team to dive it, explore the wrecks, and piece together what happened in that faraway place.

Boss loves the challenge. Thousands of ships, centuries of history, all play to her strengths. In her absence, she trusts Coop to defend the Nine Planets Alliance against the Enterran Empire.

But an encounter from Coop’s recent past shows up to haunt him, an encounter he never told Boss about, an encounter that could threaten her future, his life, and the fragile peace between the Alliance and the Empire.

    Will these be released in hard copy at all?

    • All of the Diving novels are already in hardcopy as are the novellas. Strangers is in hardcopy, and the trade paper edition of Skirmishes will be available on September 17. :-) So that’s a long way of saying…yes. :-)

    Do you have the Diving Universe stories listed somewhere in publishing or chronological order? It really annoys me to read things completely out of order. Later books always have spoilers for the earlier ones.
