Editorial Reviews

Review

“Fast-paced, gripping hard SF with death in hard vacuum waiting at every turn.”

"Gripping, intense, military SF. Stunning and urgent." (Anna Smith Spark, author of the Empires of Dust series )

“Space battles, sabotage, and treachery envelop a gripping whodunit, as Captain Ellisa Shann strives to identify a murderer among her crew and save her ship, the Khidr, from imminent destruction. Fearless is a fabulous read from a writer who knows how to deliver.” (Ian Whates, Author of Dark Angels Rising and 2019 Winner of the Karl Edward Wagner Award )

“Fearless is a brilliant achievement, and one of the best science-fiction novels I have read in a very long time."

"The depths of outer space test the strength of a dynamic heroine’s inner resolve in Stroud’s smart, introspective space opera set in the year 2118. [...] With an attention to detail that will please hard science fiction fans, Stroud raises fascinating questions about the politics of space exploration. This is one to be savored."

“A wonderful, modern, inclusive and clever science fiction that deserves to be a part of anyone’s collection.” (SF Book )

"[Allen Stroud] also brings a Clarkian feel that grounds the story in the best tradition of science fiction. He keeps the action going, and does a fine job of showing the difficulties of conflict in space. Highly Recommended.”

“Allen Stroud tells a hard sf tale with white knuckle stress that doesn’t let up till the end. I want more.” (Henry Lazarus )

“With a large cast of characters, lots of suspects, space battles and plenty of action to keep even the most ardent fans of sci-fi thoroughly entertained. Brilliant.” (The Bookwormery )

“Allen Stroud’s Fearless has elements of those classics of an earlier era. He takes science seriously. The plot is gritty and full of twists.” (Scintilla )

“Fearless offers the reader a great piece of smart science fiction that fans of space opera and spaceship battles will enjoy immensely. Expect lots of tension and a group of characters you soon get invested in.” (Runalong the shelves )

About the Author

Allen Stroud is a lecturer at Coventry University, where he teaches BA (Hons) Media and Communications. Stroud completed a Ph. D. at the University of Winchester entitled An Investigation and Application of Writing Structures and World Development Techniques in Science Fiction and Fantasy. This thesis covered his work on the computer games, Elite Dangerous (2014) and Chaos Reborn (2016). For Elite: Dangerous, Stroud wrote six guidebooks that inform the game’s fictional narrative and also served to help other writers with their novelisations set in the game world.

He was a founding host of Lave Radio, an Elite: Dangerous fan podcast that started in February 2013 and runs the annual convention Lavecon. His novel set in the Elite: Dangerous game world, called Elite: Lave Revolution was successfully funded on Kickstarter and published in late 2014, with a second edition published in 2015. Stroud then supported Spidermind Games in developing the Elite Dangerous Roleplaying Game.
Stroud worked on Chaos Reborn with Snapshot Games and is working on Phoenix Point, due for release in 2019.

Stroud was the 2017 and 2018 chair of Fantasycon, the annual convention of the British Fantasy Society, which hosts the British Fantasy Awards. In June 2019, he became Chair of the British Science Fiction Association, taking over from Donna Bond.
Stroud continues to write academic papers, reviews, articles and fiction in science fiction, fantasy and horror. He lives in a messy house with two cats and his partner, Karen.
