“Artifice” Released

“Artifice,” the twelfth novel in the Silver Ships series, is now available on Amazon. The print version will follow soon.

Summary: The great spheres and probes of Artifice, humankind’s enemy, haunt every inhabited world near and far. The Omnians’ long and arduous search for Artifice has ended. They’ve located Artifice’s lair in the Talus system.

Whether or not the Omnians can gather allies to help them defeat Artifice, they don’t intend to abandon their goal and return to Omnia. They mean to capture or destroy the entity, Artifice, or die trying.

    Does that mean the other elder races getting the same deal in tech upgrades as the Toralians to basically police that area of space?

    Okay, I’ll try asking about something a little more recent.

    1. Ude (cloned boy from book 11) kinda up and disappeared from this book.
    2. Alex didn’t ask Artifice what happened to the remains of the New Terra in this book.

    Since the next book is labeled “Sojourn”, I take it will take place back in the home region of space and the above will not be addressed until the book after.

    Veklocks is suppose to be released in Feb or is still TBA?

      To answer your questions, K:
      1. Originally, there was a role for Ude to play in “Artifice, but when the plot outline changed that role went away.
      2. Requesting that information from Artifice would have sent the main plot off on a tangent in “Artifice.”
      3. I wouldn’t assume anything about in what region of space the story of “Sojourn” will take place.
      4. “Sojourn” should be released in March. “Veklocks” will follow in the summer.

    I am reading “Artifice” right now and it does not disappoint. Well done Scott!!! This series and the Pyreans have kept me interested in everything you write. Thank you mate!
    Cheers from Australia.

    I assume the Omnians and the Pyreans both inhabit the same universe. Will we ever see them meet?

    Love both series, and am always eagerly awaiting the next installment. Keep up the great work!

      Hello Jordan, thank you for your generous comments. The Omnians and Pyreans do inhabit the same universe, but the stories take place about 400 years apart. If they were to meet, it would most likely take place between the Omnians and the descendants of the Pyreans. 😉

    Love the series, and would love to see some kind of crossover between the Omnians and Pyreans at some point. Also will we see anything more of the plant people in future books?

      Hello, Judd, thank you for your kind comment. The Omnians and the Pyreans do occupy the same universe, but not the same timeline. But in Alex’s universe, anything is possible. 😉 I’ve many suggestion for ancillary stories about the other characters, races, and worlds in the Silver Ships saga. I’m considering many of them. While other readers have requested more on the Ollassa, I’ve not been able think of a story line for them. Only time will tell. Thanks for reading, Judd.
