The first full novel set in the Diving Universe in 3 years will appear next month. Yeah, it’s a novel without Boss, but you’re going to want to read this, especially since Boss will appear in the next book, which will hit print in 2017.
Print, audio, and other e-stores will have copies on–you guessed it–October 25.
And to tease you a little, here’s the back cover copy:
Fleet sector bases close as the Fleet moves on. Everyone knows and expects it. But still, the announcement that Sector Base E-2 will close—although still thirty years in the future—breeds a mood of tension and anxiety.
So, when Rajivk Agwu finds two pairs of shoes on a trail near Fiskett Falls, but no sign of their occupants, his already heightened senses warn of danger.
Those on the base fare no better. Bristol Iannazzi, working on the notoriously delicate anacapa drive for a runabout, also notices something strange, something out of place, something dangerous…
Expanding the rich history of Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s captivating Diving universe, The Falls provides an exciting and crucial backstory for future events.
I just found out today that the next novel, The Runabout, will premiere in Asimovs SF Magazine next spring. I’ll have more information on that here as I know it.
