This is Mutiny, Mr Christian!!

Mike Resnick's Starship: Mutiny, the first book in his Starship series, has just appeared for the Kindle. This is good, given that books 2 and 4 have been up a while. Also, before you say it, other ebook formats are coming soon!

  1. I'd take that personally if I didn't like the book so much (and, you know, it wasn't a well know literary reference).

  2. I've tried reading Resnick - 2 or 3 at the urging of my husband - and I just don't enjoy him.

    However, The Quiet War arrived on my doorstep yesterday - which is great! And it looks absolutely gorgeous! So now I have both it and Dawnthief to read! I'd been saving starting Dawnthief for a specific reason - I had some oral surgery this morning, and it's going to be a quiet weekend. But I have my 2 books! (along with Night Shade's Sherlock Holmes & The Windup Girl.)

  3. Oh, I wish I could read The Windup Girl. I do have it, so maybe I can absorb its brilliance by osmosis. Meanwhile, will be very eager for your opinion of the McAuley.

  4. I finished The Quiet War yesterday.

    I loved it!

    This man needs to write more books so I can buy more books and make Pyr rich! The pacing was wonderful. The characters were entirely believable - at least 3 or 4 of them I know personally. And the science part of it wasn't too science-y - I found myself reading every word and not having to skip any of it because it was over my head.

    And the ending . . . perfect.

    I want to read more about what happens to these worlds and the people in them.

    I enjoy the books and would get them for my Kindle, but unfortunatel;y they're not in Amazon's standard format. Instead they're in the Topaz format with its quirky fonts and inability to control line spacing. Hopefully future Pyr books will be in the .azw format.

  7. Any news on when book 3 will show up on Kindle?

  8. Conversion is on their end. If you click "I'd like to read this book on the Kindle" they apparently prioritize.

  9. I have a B&N Nook which uses the ePub format (as does Sony and other ereaders), so when would this series be available in this format? In essence, I have been waiting patiently since your comment of other ebook formats coming.

  10. We'll be up on the B&N eReader format very very soon. Two titles have already shown up, but sans their titles and not yet linked to their physical books. We just completed submitting all the metadata last week, and expect many titles to begin showing up shortly.
