About The Author

“A new master of the genre”

– William C. Dietz, author of Andromeda’s War

Bennett R. Coles has served as an officer in the Royal Canadian Navy and Canadian Army for more than twenty years and he’s had many adventures, as well as many boring times to think about writing. During his interim career in international business development he continued to explore all corners of the Earth, but now had thirteen-hour flights across the Pacific where he could churn out chapter after chapter of military space adventures. He is a recipient of the Cygnus Award for military science fiction and the Cygnus Grand Prize for science fiction. He attends SF cons across North America whenever he can, but is far more likely to be spotted at cons closer to his home in Victoria, Canada. He’s happily married and is kept busy with two growing boys and two scheming cats.
