Yep. Got a new book out. Here’s the deal:

OUTLAW-2MBIN THE YEAR 2010, an alien virus nearly wiped out the human race. A thousand years later, mankind has recovered and ventured into space. There has been no sign of the aliens since. Humanity remains confined to the Solar System.

All that is about to change. 

Mazzy Webber is a lowly janitor on a third-rate cargo ship. Deeply in debt, when his captain decides to turn pirate, he leaps at the chance.

A modern Robin Hood—minus the part where he gives back to the poor—Webber lays down a few ground rules. No attacking manned ships, and no stealing from anyone who can’t afford it. Within months, he and the crew are out of debt. Their next target will make them rich.

But the attack goes all wrong. The target’s cargo could be the death of them—or it could be the key to reaching the stars.

By the way, if that description sounds familiar…it should. OUTLAW is the first book in a new series set in the far future of the Breakers universe. While you absolutely don’t have to read the Breakers books to follow along, having that as background should add an extra layer to the fun.

It definitely made it more fun to write. I love space opera and have been wanting to start a new series for a long time. Putting it in the future of my particular world has given it its own unique history and flavor.

On top of that, looking at this as a publisher, this gives readers more to check out. Like the Rebel Stars stuff? Good news! Its apocalyptic history has already been chronicled in the Breakers series. Like Breakers? Well, clear up some space on your ereader! Because here’s what happens long after humanity bounces back.

I really can’t say how much crossover there will be. I can say that combining these series into the same universe pleases the heck out of me as both a writer and as a publisher.

I now have delusions of chronicling the complete history of this world. That might be too ambitious — or possibly too boring! — but it’s an exciting possibility.

That can wait for a later date. For now? Buy buy buy! Buy like the wind! A thousand years of silly fictional history depends on you.

  • Candy says:

    I am going to buy ‘OUTLAW” today. However, you have to finish the “BREAKERS” saga! Don’t leave us all hanging on what happens to Walt, Mia, Raina, and the rest. I would never have believed I would read 5 sequels!!!! AND you still have my full attention! Hurry! Finish! Please?

  • Scott Johnston says:

    WOW! I have bought and hope to get into this book this weekend. Love the idea of a future history (deathlands/outlanders, robot series, etc.). Loving the space opera of breakers and glad the series is also continuing.

  • Scott Dyson says:

    I downloaded this one and the collection with REBEL. I hope that the other stories in the collection are as good as I’m used to getting from you. Thanks for the heads up!

  • Mike Anderson says:

    Well Sir – put another notch in the fan wall – have only read two of your books and I liked both – characters are real, problems are plausible and not always solvable by the main character, like life – So now I have to plan out the acquisition of all your work – Thank You for Your Imagination and Craftsmanship lending enjoyment to my Life – USN Total Dis and Heart Patient so this is an important slice of my days.

  • Dietrich says:

    Picked up outlaw yesterday afternoon….finished it today. So when is #2 coming out?

    In the interim, going to catch up on some of the breakers series.


    • Ed Robertson says:

      Great to hear you liked it. Or finished it, anyway. :)

      I’m currently working on a new Breakers novel, but once that’s done, #2 is my next priority. I bet I can have it done by mid-January or early February. Also, if you haven’t read the prequel (Rebel), you can find it in the Stars & Empire box set. I’ll be releasing it on its own in about a month, too.

  • Samir says:

    Love your Breakers series, but went to buy your new one “Outlaws” and B&N doesn’t have it as a nookbook……will you be making it available soon? Can’t wait to read it!

  • GregR says:

    Eh, does Google Play still carry your books? I see I can still buy the Breakers stuff, but this one is only showing up if i click your link above – but then i can’t BUY it, just add it to a wishlist. Is this a temporary glitch, or was this a limited edition? I only got into ebook-reading at the beginning of December…

  • John Michalak says:

    Can you please explain how book 0 is related to book 1 in the Rebel Star series?

    • Ed Robertson says:

      Book 0 is an introduction to the series’ main character (Rada), the group she works for, the world, etc. I wouldn’t consider it strictly necessary to read to understand the rest of the series, which will have a more cohesive, single story.

  • John Michalak says:

    Thank you!

  • John Michalak says:

    FYI. I read them in sequence (Rebel then Outlaw). I think it adds to the experience. Well done sir.

    Hi, what comes after Traitor, and when will it release? thanks

  • Greg Culverwell says:

    I have read the 3 books in this series. Traitor ends by saying that the next book will out in a few months.
    More than a few months have passed. Are you going to do the next one?

    I really enjoyed this particular series because of the fast paced ‘space opera’ style. A nice change from the often stodgy style of sci-fi.
    Sometimes less is more.
    Besides, the story has a lot of life and unanswered questions left in it.

    • Ed Robertson says:

      Yeah, sorry for the delay on that–I had a different series do unexpectedly well, which caused me to change my schedule. But I’ll be writing the next book after my current project. Expect it early next year, with a fifth entry in the series later in 2016.
