Don’t miss out on the special charity auction for the original manuscript for the Young Jedi Knights: Darkest Knight signed by authors Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta. All proceeds will be going to the Pearl Foundation. The auction ends on December 1st. Winners will receive the original annotated production manuscript of Young Jedi Knights: The Darkest Knight which includes editorial and production marks throughout, hand written by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta.
These are the last-round polishes and approvals, different word choices, alterations for continuity. As a bonus, this package also includes a signed first-edition copy of the original publication — these books are themselves very hard to find and regularly sell for more than $100 on eBay. This is unique and will never be offered again. Both manuscript and the book are autographed by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta, and can be personalized to the winner, upon request.

Kevin J. Anderson has a new serial out called The Dragon Business. The eight part serial will be released on a weekly basis starting today. You can get the whole thing for just a $1.99 on Amazon.
King Cullin may be known as “the Dragon Slayer,” but he fears his son’s legacy will be as “King Maurice Who Speaks with Proper Grammar.” The boy keeps his nose buried in parchments, starry-eyed at the idea of noble knights and eager to hand royal gold to any con man hawking a unicorn horn. Tonight, though, Cullin will educate the prince in the truth behind minstrels’ silly songs of glory…
Long ago, in a kingdom, well, not that far from here really, young Cullin traveled the countryside as squire to brave Sir Dalbry, along with Dalbry’s trusted sidekick Reeger, selling dragon-protection services to every kingdom with a coffer. There were no dragons, of course, but with a collection of severed alligator heads and a willingness to play dirty, the trio of con men was crushing the competition. Then along came Princess Affonyl.
Tomboyish and with a head for alchemy, Affonyl faked a dragon of her own, escaped her arranged marriage, and threw in with Cullin and company. But with her father sending a crew of do-gooder knights to find her, the dragon business just got cutthroat.

Five By Five 2: No Surrender is the sequel anthology to Five By Five. This anthology features authors Kevin J. Anderson, Aaron Allston, William C. Dietz, Brad R. Torgersen and R.M. Meluch. There are five novellas in the collection.
- LEGIO PATRIA NOSTRA—by William C. Dietz. The insectoid Ramanthians have occupied Earth, and the Confederacy of Sentient Beings needs assistance from the xenophobic Hudathans in order to survive. But some Hudathan relics have been stolen, and the Hudathans won’t join the Confederacy unless Legion Captain Deacon Smith can get them back. And that’s going to be difficult because the thieves are ex-legionnaires—and they have a platoon of heavily armed cyborgs! A Legion of the Damned® story.
- PRISONER OF WAR—by Kevin J. Anderson. Set in the world of Harlan Ellison’s classic Outer Limits episode “Soldier,” this is a tale about a set of warriors in a never-ending future war, men bred for nothing but the battleground—and how they cope with the horrors of…peace.
- REARDON’S LAW—by Brad R. Torgersen. When expensive, classified shipments of military hardware go missing, Conflux Armed Forces policewoman Kalliope Reardon is called in to work the case. She gets way more than she bargained for, as the trail takes her far outside the boundaries of the civilized galaxy, and into the heart of occupied enemy territory.
- DAGGER TEAM SEVEN—by R.M. Meluch. The evidence is clear and damning—A.C. Cade was a fraud. Cade’s son makes himself into the man he used to believe his father was—a pilot of an elite Dagger Team, defending Earth against a desperate alien invader which has no use for humankind and absolutely nothing to lose.
- COFFEE BLACK SEA—by Aaron Allston. The saga of the Dollgangers from “Big Plush” (Five by Five Vol. 1) continues. Bow, BeeBee, Lina, and new ’gangers escalate the risks of their quest for survival…by turning their eyes to the stars.
