Wild Stars 7: The Gold Exigency

In 2022, Wild Stars 6: Orphan of the Shadowy Moons revealed the origins of the star-crossed lovers, Strazis, the Ancient Warrior, and Phaedra, completing the first half of the 12 volume Wild Stars saga.

In the Spring issue of Cirsova Magazine, the second half of the saga begins with Wild Stars 7: The Gold Exigency!
This story features the return of Constable Conrock, a tough-as-nails law officer on a distant colony planet, who was first introduced back in 1977 in The Multiversal Scribe Magazine's "The Boundaries of Discision" (check out the 2022 book release of Wild Stars 5: The Artomique Paradigm, which includes a reprint of "The Boundaries of Decision" as bonus content). With an unshakable moral compass, Conrock is once again confronted by the predatory humanoid-lizards, the Black Star Reavers, on the cover of Cirsova #14. Their last confrontation cost him his job, but a man of his determination and skills is quickly approached about other employment--by the alternate reality fascists: Achilles Hister and the Artomiques.

This installment has a trio of shock events that happen in rapid succession, and surprised even Cirsova's editor. The Wild Stars will never be the same again!

Check out all the excitement and drama happening in the ever-expanding Wild Stars!


Wild Stars 7: The Gold Exigency

Part One Reviews:

Wild Stars 7: The Gold Exegency

Review by DMR Books:
"By the master of pulp extravagance, Mr. Michael Tierney.

"...Itís all action at this point, with some outrageously-imagined locales and violent combat.
I think this may be my favourite Michael Tierney story. Itís tightly plotted, with a kind of fight and run rhythm.
I found two of the characters very engaging, one of them being Conrock. Spoiler control prevents me naming the other.

"Tension-wise, important actors are loose in the galaxy, for good or evil, who knows? Episode 1 and itís already a wild story.
Looking forward to the next episode."

5-Star Review by Fiannawolfe:
"Pulp goodness!"

"Wild Stars is one of my mainstays via Cirsova ..."

5-Star Review by John E. Boyle:
A Wild Stars story ...!!! Who could ask for more?

"The Spring 2023 Cirsova is out and it has some great stuff. There is the first part of a Wild Stars story by Michael Tierney ..."

In 2023, the Wild Stars Universe evolves to the next level with
Wild Stars 7: The Gold Exigency!

Exigency definition: An emergency response to urgent circumstances.

Cirsova Magazine responded today with the editor's reaction to my Wild Stars 7: The Gold Exigency, "It was Fantastic!" and we came to terms.
Wild Stars 7 will start its serialization in 2023 right after the extra-long Wild Stars 6: Orphan of the Shadowy Moons finishes its four-part run at the end of 2022.
