Orel Doon works for a large shipping conglomerate based on Luna, where he’s lived his entire life. Suffering from a terminal case of boredom, he heads out to Saturn, and picks up his best friend from a mining operation. Together, they “borrow” one of his company’s starships, and set out to have an adventure. This turns out to be even more of an adventure than anticipated, as neither Doon nor his friend know much of anything about starships, or for that matter, much of anything outside the shipping or mining business.
Together, they bumble their way across the galaxy, collecting new friends and enemies, learning as they go, while engaging in a little light piracy, and the occasional bit of smuggling. While none of this is boring, it’s nothing next to the revolution they inadvertently start.
Dubious Heroes is epic hard science-fiction, space opera, and an irreverent look at who we are, versus who we want to be.
Targeted Age Group:: 18+
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The inspiration for this book began with me reading about the life and exploits of Sir Francis Drake, and Age of Discovery. As a lifelong science-fiction fan (and author), I thought it would interesting to create a similar expansion of civilization two hundred years into the future, as humans explore and settle the solar system and other nearby systems.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters in all of my novels are created primarily from my imagination, as well as often combining the traits of people I know.
