Wild Stars 6: Orphan of the Shadowy Moons

January 15th, 2024, kicked off the 40th Anniversary of the Wild Stars
with the mass market release of the complete 2022 serial that first appeared in Cirsova Magazine.
These editions include new and long-out-of-print material.

Reviews for Part One:

Five out of 5 Star review on Amazon by John E. Boyle:
"... the best Science Fiction and Fantasy out there ..."

"The first installment of Wild Stars 6: Orphan of the Shadowy Moons is now on
sale and cover featured on Cirsova Magazine of Thrilling Adventure and Daring Suspense #10,
the Spring 2022 issue! Whenever I talked about the making of my Wild Stars, I always mentioned
how the series was based on a set of Wild Stars novels I wrote back in the 1970s. This is one of
those novels. I never showed Moonshadow (working title) to any editors, and the concepts remain
unique today, 45 years later, although some ideas like people battling it out on weaponized
jet skies or remote controlling massive machines with a tablet might not be as
radical now as they were back in the mid-seventies, when most people hadn't even
heard of such things. This novel is the perfect jumping on point for new readers because it
gives the origin of The Ancient Warrior and Phaedra. As the editor notes, if you are new to Wild
s, skip the framing introduction and go straight to Chapter One. This is the beginning I've
been building to over the last five novels. The many revelations here lead to new mysteries."
