Editorial Reviews


"With Colonies Lost, Ian J. Malone did one of my favoritethings: He tossed half a dozen different genres in the blender. It's a PoliceProcedural/Thriller and a Western, mixed with Historical Mystery and ScienceFiction. Something for everyone, and great fun!" -- Taylor Anderson, author ofthe New York Times bestselling Destroyermen Series

"Colonies Lost is a twisting, turning, awesome sci-fiadventure wrapped in a police procedural wrapped in a history story garnishedwith introspection and mystery. Ian J. Malone has crushed it out of the parkwith this one. Reminds me of the old-school sci-fi I loved as a kid." -- John G.Hartness, author of
The Black KnightChronicles

"A great read from start to finish with a little somethingfor everyone. Action, adventure, mystery, history. Definitely worth the read." --Dave Daniels, co-host of
The Dudes inHyperspace Podcast

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Sci-fi author Ian J. Malone has written in a variety of arenas over the years, ranging from public health to news and sports. When it comes to his fictional work, he’s a firm believer that nothing shapes a person’s writing like experience. That’s why he credits his tenures in radio, law enforcement, and military contracting for much of his inspiration, plus the legion of family and friends who’ve stood with him along the way.

Beyond writing, Malone serves as co-host of “The Dudes in Hyperspace Podcast” and is an avid fan of audiobooks (he’s legally blind). It’s also not uncommon to find him at a ballgame, a concert, or somewhere out by a grill.

Malone is an active member of the Science Fiction &amp; Fantasy Writers of America and a resident of Raleigh, North Carolina — but he’ll always be a “Florida boy” at heart.
