Should I Return to the Galaxy?

I was thinking of this saga the other day, how I haven’t finished it and how there are more adventures awaiting, what do you think of them?

By John Irvin

          I’m sitting here this morning, my mind flying to the old story of a group of friends, comrades-at-arms, who stood as freedom fighters against a worldwide tyranny.

          They realized the cause of freedom needed something new.

          How about a whole new world? Like, I mean, an actual different planet! Yes, this is what these Liberators are on mission for in the two prequels and the majority of the first novel.

          I’m talking about my StarQuest saga. Check out its page on my website: page

          The novel was the first official book I published. It’s gone through an edition or two. But since then, I published two ebooks that are set as prequels to the novel.

          The idea is to write and published another ebook that will be set after the novel. But then, there are plenty of other adventures the team goes on. I’m wondering if maybe I could get a few more ebook novellas out of them.

          There is also a plan for a sequel novel that will be set several years after the first.

          Oh, did I mention the novel is actually being sold at my local bookstore here in Pensacola, Florida. Yes, that’s right, the wonderful Bodacious Bookstore & Café has been hosting my book on its shelves for the past several months.

          If you’re ever in town, check them out!

          By the way, here’s the video for today’s episode:

          Johan Eryn is a commanding officer in the Liberator movement. This is one of those “ragtag” militia movements that seek freedom by overthrowing a tyrannical government. But, they discovered this was a doomed cause unless they could find a totally new place to rebuild their nation.

          So, their scientists set about to build a spaceship that would take a team on a mission into the rest of the Milky Way Galaxy to find a habitable planet. Once they laid claim to one, they would return for the rest of their people and disappear from the Earth forever.

          Unbeknownst to these freedom-fighters-turned-space-explorers there are dozens and dozens of habitable worlds being civilized.

          Apparently, thousands of years ago, space exploration was in vogue. Then a worldwide catastrophe cut off all connections with Mother Earth and those extraterrestrial human colonies went on alone.

          Most have made their own histories, cultures, and languages—surprisingly they are very similar to Earth’s, okay, maybe not so surprising.
