Planet Tamers, my new military science fiction series, is set in the far-future when humanity is at the dawn of truly becoming a multiplanetary species. Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, will be terraformed by a crack team of military and scientists to become Earth 2. As a veteran myself, I’ve wanted to have a sci-fi series with a military background for a while now. The sub-genre of military sci-fi also has its own sub-genres. Most have soldiers, spaceships and space colonies, including futuristic weapons and technology. Some have alien invasions and interstellar travel. Some have nonstop space battles and all-out war. As always, I always put my own spin on any genre or sub-genre I write in. With Book One, Father’s Day, readers have already been introduced to this new universe and its main characters of soldiers and scientists.
Here’s a poll for my VIP Readers’ Club membership. What THEMES would you like to see explored most in this new Kindle Unlimited Series:
Three Possible Themes
A. Space Battles (very military and serious)
Lots of military jargon, soldiers, marines, battles on space cruisers, outer space, and new worlds!
B. Space Opera (space swashbuckling with a smile)
Think the original Star Wars Trilogy. Great space adventure, galactic empires, amazing weapons and technology, swashbuckling heroic good guys, ruthless and maniacal bad guys, a touch of romance, heavy on the melodrama and action, but also great fun.
C. Sci-Fi Horror (be read with the lights on)
Think the original Alien movie. Yes, in space no one can hear you scream. Our protagonists are traveling to the moon of the second largest planet in our solar system. Lots can go wrong. Lots of scary things can happen. We already have one main characters with the nickname “Bogeyman.” I always remind people that Mary Shelley’s 1818 gothic work, Frankenstein, was our first sci-fi novel.
So now you know the growing Fiction Universe of Author Austin Dragon.
What Theme would you like to see explored most in this new Planet Tamer Series?
Take the Quick Poll:
Austin Dragon is the author of over 30 books in science fiction, fantasy, and classic horror. His works include the sci-fi detective LIQUID COOL series, the epic fantasy FABLED QUEST CHRONICLES, the international futuristic epic AFTER EDEN Series, the classic SLEEPY HOLLOW HORRORS, and new military sci-fi PLANET TAMERS series.

Words to describe him, in no particular order: U.S. Army, English teacher, one-time resident of Paris, ex-political junkie, movie buff, Fortune 500 corporate recruiter, renaissance man, futurist, and dreamer.
I’d like to see derry do heroism, damsels in distress, strong women, good vs evil where good winds, the good guys win and the bad guys get justice.
pulply action hero adventure thriller stuff
I’d really like to see a combo of 2 and 3. Light on the 3.
Space Opera sounds GREAT!
