Steve Perry’s new book The Vastalimi Gambit is out today in paperback, audiobook and eBook. This is the second book in the Cutter’s Wars series.

At the close of the twenty-fourth century, a series of revolutions has caused the galaxy to descend into chaos. With the Galactic Union Army stretched thin, mercenary units have arisen for those who have the need—and the means—to hire them…

Kay, the alien member of the Cutter Force Initiative, has returned to her brutal home world of Vast on a mission of mercy. Before she joined the merc team, she was a great healer. And now her skills are sorely needed. Hundreds of Vastalimi—including her blood-kin—are dying mysteriously.

But is the plague a work of nature? Or is it a bioengineered virus, purposefully unleashed? Kay and Doc Wink will have to find out the hard way.

With the Cutter Force light-years away, the two find the odds against them—and on a planet like Vast, where violence abounds and life is cheap, they may be facing a foe they can’t defeat…

What happens when you write a sequel for a story by ditching the main character and replacing him with the equivalent of a futuristic female samurai? The result is Matadora. In this book, Steve Perry follows up The Man Who Never Missed with a character focus on one of his students. Dirisha goes from wandering samurai to curious student to a believer of a cause.

Today Roqoo Depot wishes a very happy birthday to author Steve Perry. Steve wrote Shadows of the Empire and co-wrote MedStar I: Battle Surgeons, MedStar II: Jedi Healer, and Deathstar with Michael Reaves. He also wrote for the Star Wars comics Shadows of the Empire: Evolution and co-wrote the short story MedStar: Intermezzo with Michael Reaves. Steve was born and raised in the deep south. Before becoming a full time writer, he held many jobs including swimming instructor, lifeguard, toy assembler, hotel gift shop and car rental clerk, aluminum salesman, martial arts instructor, private detective, Licensed Practical Nurse, and Certified Physician’s Assistant. He’s also a student of the Javanese martial art Penjak Silat which he has used for the basis of Teras Kasi in his Star Wars novels. He even participated in the largest guitar band ever assembled to be entered into the Guiness Book of World Records.

Aside from Star Wars, he has written for franchises such as Conan, Aliens, and has collaborated with Tom Clancy with the Net Force series. His original series Matador is nine books long with two more on the way. The Matador series covers a rebellion against the interstellar government known as The Confederation which is based on Earth. Like his Star Wars novels, he also includes a fictional martial art which in this case is called sumito. If you would like to learn more about Steve Perry you can visit his official website.
