New Release: ‘Overdraft: The Orion Offensive – Episode 1’

Episode 1 (of 8) of John Jackson Miller’s Overdraft: The Orion Offensive is out today on Amazon. Remember that the price on Amazon includes all eight episodes of the story which will be released every two weeks.

After an egotistical stock trader for one of the twenty-second century’s biggest corporations gets greedy and loses his employer a fortune, he has two options: go to jail or make the money back before anyone notices. Unfortunately, the only place such profits can be found is the galactic frontier, a region so dangerous it’ll take an uneasy alliance with a crew of rugged mercenaries to keep him alive and in the black.

You’d have to be insane to trade with the violent denizens of the Orion Arm, but with just one hundred days to recoup $100 billion, Jamie Sturm is feeling a little crazy. Standing between Jamie and a variety of agonizing deaths is Surge Team Sigma, the squad of power-armored mercenaries tasked with protecting him. Their last job ended in disaster thanks to Jamie’s scheming, and, led by the implacable Bridget Yang, the team is determined to keep the hapless Jamie alive long enough to fix their reputation. That is, assuming they can ignore their own growing desire to flush the annoying tagalong out of the nearest airlock.

A space opera fueled by today’s financial bravado, Overdraft: The Orion Offensive strikes a thrilling balance between desperate firefights and trenchant dark humor.

For full details on the new story, you can check out John Jackson Miller’s site farawaypress.com.

One of the reasons I love April Fool’s Day is that it gives me the excuse to act foolish and make up funny Star Wars stuff. But we here at Roqoo Depot weren’t the only ones fooling around. Here’s a rundown of who else was being foolish yesterday.

The 501st Legion got in on the act by making all Disney and Marvel characters as acceptable outfits.
