Hi there Tradecraft fans! We're still hard at work producing the third title in Michael Shusko's series, Evil Winds, and plan to announce its pub date very, very soon. Sign up for our email list to receive that exciting bit of news the second it's ready.
In the meantime, February's thrill of the month is The Last Good Man by Linda Nagata.
Here's a brief description of her highly engaging military thriller:
Scarred by war, in pursuit of truth: Army veteran True Brighton left the service when the development of robotic helicopters made her training as a pilot obsolete. Now she works at Requisite Operations, a private military company established by friend and former Special Ops soldier Lincoln Han. ReqOp has embraced the new technologies. Robotics, big data, and artificial intelligence are all tools used to augment the skills of veteran warfighters-for-hire. But the tragedy of war is still measured in human casualties, and when True makes a chance discovery during a rescue mission, old wounds are ripped open. She's left questioning what she knows of the past, and resolves to pursue the truth, whatever the cost.
The Last Good Man is a powerful, complex, and very human tale.
And here's what reviewers are saying about the book:
"...a thrilling novel that lays bare the imminent future of warfare."
--Publishers Weekly starred review
"...a fantastic, lightning-fast thriller that hits all the right notes: an engaging story set in an all-too-plausible future, advanced technology, plenty of action, and fantastic, well-rounded characters."
"A new novel by Linda Nagata is always an event. The Last Good Man pulls us into next month's headlines with a conviction and energy that makes for an extraordinary tale."
—Hugo and Nebula award-winner Greg Bear
"The Last Good Man is a compelling and subversive novel, told by unique characters, especially True Brighton: sympathetic, prickly, determined, all too human. Linda Nagata has impressive insights into technological advances and their potential effects.... It was a privilege to read TLGM before its publication."
—Hugo and Nebula award-winner Vonda N. McIntyre
