Boom Goes The MPAX

A Grand New Age of Boom or Dust? 

Boomtown Craze, Book 3 in the Backworlds series is here!

In the far future, humanity settles the stars, bioengineering its descendants to survive in a harsh universe.

To secure his future, Craze must propel his world into a more prosperous era. Only days away from the grand opening of his new and improved tavern, he is confronted by a loony Backworlder intent on mucking up his plans. Gaunt and trembling, she claims her spaceship is possessed. She also has a connection to the underworld that shakes loose the dark past of one of Craze’s closest friends. It all threatens to end Craze’s prosperity before it begins.

Meanwhile off world, Captain Talos works desperately to outwit the mercenary Jixes and lure them away from his and Craze’s budding prospects. The mind-control weapon Talos uses against them is wearing thin, and his next move may be his last.

Will Craze and Talos’s efforts bring about a grand new age of boom or damn them to forever struggle in the dust?

  1. Sounds like a great read by a fun author (anyone who likes Jane Austen and has an extensive collection of moon pics is right up my alley!). Thanks for sharing the book info!

  2. I've got to catch up, the first book was incredible! And I have a thing for Jane, too.

    Thanks for sharing E.J. Can you believe Urlacher might be gone from the Bears? We also made a couple of pretty good free agent signings in Bennett and Bushrod.

  3. Congrats, Mary! I downloaded it two weeks ago.
