Space Academy Washouts audiobook available for preorder


“These are the voyages of the starship…something-something.”

Captain Vance Turbo has been struggling for the past few years, his reputation in tatters and most of his allies having turned against him. Offered a chance to go after a sinister crime syndicate at a peace treaty in Notha Space, he jumps at the chance. However, no sooner does he do so that he discovers that a malevolent AI and even more powerful forces are at work. Ones that threaten everyone and everything in the galaxy. Will Vance somehow stumble his way into saving the universe again or will his luck finally run out?

Space Academy is an all-new series from the hilarious duo of C.T. Phipps (Supervillainy Saga, Agent G) and Michael Suttkus (I Was a Teenage Weredeer, Lucifer’s Star) that lampoons the space opera as well as military science fiction genres.

Space Academy cover changes

Hey folks,

I’m  pleased to announce an update for the Space Academy series. We’ve got a  new set of covers and some short stories for the Kindle editions of the  funniest series in science fiction today. Vance Turbo, HERO OF SPACE  and the worst crew in the galaxy are repeatedly called upon to defend  the Galactic Community from conspiracies, four-foot-tall fascist  squirrels, ancient alien gods, and gun-toting space rednecks. I think  these new covers capture the zaniness of my and my co-authors’ work.

They’re available on Kindle, Audible (narrated by Jeffrey Kafer), and Kindle Unlimited.

#2: Space Academy Rejects: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09Z7QFFCQ

#3: Space Academy Washouts: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0B8MXLJ1B

I hope you’ll all check them out.

Some Wraith Knight developments

  

Well my original idea for Wraith Knight was to do three books like the Dragonlance Chronicles or the paperbacks I read in the Nineties but the Game of Thrones‘ bad ending, decision to expand the United States of Monsters, and a lot of disillusionment with Ragnarok Publications caused me to not finish the trilogy.

So I decided to resume writing Wraith King because I was inspired by the House of the Dragon trailer but I had a severe problem that was not going to be easily solved: I had forgotten huge amounts of details regarding the setting, characters, events, and where I was going to go with it.

Settling down to re-read it, I ended up taking massive amounts of notes about everything I had established about the setting. Really, I just had to rejog my memory for most of it. However, when I looked at all my pages and pages of notes, I had a brilliant idea: APPENDICES! This is because adding a Lexicon and cast of characters to Space Academy dropouts was something that I think was well-appreciated (I also had one in Cthulhu Armageddon added after the fact).

In the end, I also realized I should probably re-edit the first two books as well. So, my plans on writing the third Wraith Knight book were becoming rather hard to do or at least delayed. However, it was resurrecting my enthusiasm for the project that had been so harshly hurt by Ragnarok Publications. So I commissioned the re-edit while doing all of my background work that eventually got me a detailed guide to my own creation as well as its history.

THAT’S WHEN I SET OUT TO DO BOOK 3#!

Which is when I ran into my next set of problems.

So, I settled down to do my book and wanted to start with a big battle scene that would be the opening to the story. I figured it would be about two chapters long because it would end in both sides suffering heavy casualties. However, it turns out I ACTUALLY LIKE WRITING ACTION and its expanded to about five chapters so far because Jacob Riverson being Darth Vader and tearing through the mundanes never gets old. Like that scene in Rogue One with Vader in the hallway is a lot of the scenes.

However, I also had a bunch of character beats and flashbacks I wrote independently and having put them altogether I realize…there’s no way I’m going to finish this series in 3 books.

So now it will be FIVE!

Two new book releases and good news!

I’m now pleased to say the third (and not final) volume of Space Academy is now released in Kindle form! There’s a lot of good news that comes with this volume because it is also coming with Podium and I signing a deal with six books in the series (that’s three more) to be narrated by Jeffrey Kafer! Yay!

“These are the voyages of the starship…something-something.”

Captain  Vance Turbo has been struggling for the past few years, his reputation  in tatters and most of his allies having turned against him. Offered a  chance to go after a sinister crime syndicate at a peace treaty in Notha  Space, he jumps at the chance. However, no sooner does he do so that he  discovers that a malevolent AI and even more powerful forces are at  work. Ones that threaten everyone and everything in the galaxy. Will  Vance somehow stumble his way into saving the universe again or will his  luck finally run out?

That’s not the only good news, however, because we also have TALES OF CAPES AND COWLS available for Kindle. It is a wonderful anthology containing numerous superhero stories by such awesome authors as myself, Keith R.A. Candido, Michael Suttkus, David Niall Wilson, and Matthew Davenport.

TALES OF CAPES AND COWLS

Link: https://www.amazon.com/Tales-Capes-Cowls-C-Phipps-ebook/dp/B0B1PDVDV1/

“Look, up in the sky, it’s Ultragod!”

Superheroes have conquered movies, television, video games, and (of course) the comic book. However, there’s still a dearth of fantastic superhero literature out there. Tales of Capes and Cowls is a wonderful collection of nine short stories, novelettes, and a novella about the text-based adventures of superheroes.

Inside, you’ll find stories about a supervillain recruited to kill Hitler before he wins WW2 using magic, a street level hero out to stop an insane AI, a group of young heroes befriending a powerful wizard, a daring jailbreak, and a 1960s romp with that era’s modest heroes! Works by C.T. Phipps (Supervillainy Saga), David Niall Wilson (Hoods), Keith R.E. DeCandido (Super City Cops), Richard Roberts (Please Don’t Tell My Parents I’m A Supervillain), and more!

Space Academy Rejects now available!


Hey folks,

SPACE ACADEMY REJECTS is now available for purchase on Kindle and Audiobook! It is the sequel to Space Academy Dropouts and I think to be one of my funniest creations yet.

“Where no one has been dumb enough to have gone before.”

Vance Turbo, HERO OF SPACE, has spent most of his hard-won officer’s career helping refugees. This ends when a star gets blown up and he accidentally ends up saving everyone. Now the captain of the E.S.S Ares, he is on a goodwill mission to Contested Space. Unfortunately, his crew is made up of people who couldn’t qualify for Space Academy but are now in thanks to lowered enlistment standards. Captain Turbo has also been charged by the Elder Races to find out who blew up the star or they’re going to destroy humanity. Did we mention the evil Notha Emperor wants to be his best friend? All in a day’s work for the galaxy’s most questionably qualified explorer.

Space Academy is an all-new series from the hilarious duo of C.T. Phipps (Supervillainy Saga, Agent G) and Michael Suttkus (
I Was a Teenage Weredeer) that lampoons the space opera as well as military science fiction genres.

Determined to prove herself every bit her boyfriend’s equal, if not superior, Cindy assembles a team of other villains to go after the largest treasure trove in the world: the hoard of the Dragon King.

Unfortunately, things start going sideways from the start. An ex-boyfriend of hers turned eldritch horror wants revenge, other villains don’t want anything to do with her plan, and the Foundation for World Harmony has put out a death warrant on her head. Merciless has also decided to engage in a little friendly competition that Cindy wants nothing to do with. Can she steal slay the dragon and claim its treasure? Will she let her ego and impatience get in the way? Also, who is Red Sindi and what relationship does she have with our antiheroine?

“Boldly going because they’re completely lost.”

The newly renamed Vance Turbo has sabotaged his own career at Space Fleet Academy due to a desire to atone for a training accident. Unfortunately, his actions result in him getting press-ganged into an expendable crew of misfits recruited by a legendary starship captain. Their mission? To recover a collection of lost sun-destroying missiles that could restart a galactic war. Unfortunately, Vance is smart enough to know something is wrong with this picture. After all, no sane person would recruit this crew to save the universe.

Keiko “Kei” Springs is a Rider, a specialized form of delivery girl and mercenary all in one.

They are among the most highly prized criminals in the dystopian neon city of New Los Angeles. Kei has been running from her past for years and has literally erased it from her mind using a popular street drug called lethe. Unfortunately, you can’t outrun your past forever, even on her specialized Nina cybercycle.

Strapped for cash, Kei accepts a job she probably shouldn’t after barely surviving a live fire test by a married pair of oligarchs. Teamed up with a group of other mercenaries and cyborgs, Kei is to seek out a stolen computer program that has the power to drive otherwise ordinary individuals to shocking acts of violence. Her team includes her ex, a handsome bioroid assassin, a teenage hacker, and a ruthless corporate exec that all have their own agendas. It’d be the worst time of her life if not for all the ones she can’t remember.

The Cyber Dragons trilogy is set in the same world as the Agent G series and is an exciting action adventure cyberpunk thriller with plenty of humor.
