Introduction to Notes on the Titan Run Universe


The book covers for the Titan Run Trilogy. Aren't they intriguing?

You may have heard of the Titan Run Trilogy, I mean, it's all over this site. Based on my lifetime sales dashboard, however, odds are you have not. That's fine. There are links to the right to get you started if any of this content makes you sufficiently curious, and you can always join the mailing list for updates on new books and any public appearances I'll be making.

The Titan Run Universe is the shared, well, universe in which most of my Science Fiction work takes place. Notes on the Titan Run Universe is a series of articles that add context to the Titan Run Universe novels. This series will address the 'current' state of the Solar System and the history of how it got to where it is as of the beginning of the Titan Run Trilogy. I will also include character biographies and offer more information on the ships that for me are characters as much as the people who inhabit the TRU.

Check out a brief taste of what's to come after the jump.

The Titan Run Universe begins with "Breaking Orbit," which takes place in the year 2316. As future articles will discuss, Humanity narrowly passed through a Great Filter, saving our home planet from ecological disaster. Out of the ashes of this disaster we resolved to re-wild Earth as much as was possible and took what was gained in technology and medicine to begin the colonization of the Moon and Mars.

By 2316 there are thriving populations on both of these previously lifeless worlds and outposts on Venus and the Jovian moon Callisto. Terraforming efforts are in full swing on Mars with chosen methods making The Titan Run a profitable enterprise for those willing to take the risk. The BPOE patrols the space between worlds, keeping the population safe.

This is the barest frame on which I will build out the context for you in coming pieces. As much to inform you as to keep myself in order as the universe grows. And hey, if you like this stuff leave a comment. If you like the books, leave a review!

For now, comms circuit closed.
