Welcome my friends. 3su is going to be resting for a spell with Daniel while the Star Traveler adventures continue on the attached "Star Traveler Series" sites. (see side-bar of this blog)
Read the story from the beginning starting with "The Helavite War," - where you meet Jake Harcourt the riotous mercenary and Arr his alien henu partner with the ability to learn languages almost instantaneously. Travel with them on their missions, fight with them, meet their friends, experience their growing friendship and the revelation of Arr's other interesting alien talents.
Continue their saga in "The Heirs of Henu," - where Jake and Arr find that settling down to family life - planet bound - is not for them. Experience a wild ride with the pair prompted by Tim's pulling them into a drug deal gone bad. Race with Jake to find a cure for Arr as he struggles to live through being poisoned by a shape shifting alien.
Volume 3 - "Old Friends/New Enemies" jumps ahead 30 years to follow Jake, Arr and Tim's children with a demented zoo keeper who thinks they should all be pets - or at least the henus should. Will they be rescued in time? Or will they spend the rest of their lives as mere exhibits in a animal park?
"The Malefactors" - Volume 4 sheds some light on where Captain Targus of the Mobile Tactical Unit 2424 comes from. Who would have known what his background was and where it would lead our new friend, Arr's son, Terrell? What dark secret does the ruling class of Walh hold over our Captain? Will he live through the revelation of that secret?
Volume 5 "Cataclysm" - finds Taylor, Jake's son, winning a game of CUE that will change his life forever and those around him as well. Slave girls, an off-limits planet and an vicious, evil opponent make this race through space to save Taylor's 'main squeeze' a riot in more ways then one.
Then continue with Volume 6 - now being posted 5 chapters a week - "A Mear Slight of Hand" where Arr's past has come back to haunt him in the form a demented, dangerous, insane, knife craving, former colleague.
Finally, watch for the coming "Star Travelers Companion" and look for the tools you need to keep all the characters in the Star Traveler Series fresh in your mind plus short side stories like the "3su Blog" and mating rituals of Tuldavian Swamp Lizards. You'll find a map of the Star Traveler's area of the verse. Also, see conceptual pictures of all the characters you have grown to love in the series.
3su will return when she has had a bit of R&R, her nails sprayed, an andruvian eight legged tactile massage, her hair restyled, and she has done an over-the-top amount of retail therapy in order to get her head back on straight.
Until then, sit back, print out the pdfs for the Star Traveler Series volumes and have a nice winter read.
