About Felix R Savage
Felix was born too late to be a knight in armor, and too early to be a space colonist. He makes up for it by writing action-packed science fiction epics that have sold over 130,000 copies worldwide and become USA Today bestsellers. Restlessly driven to explore, he was born in the Deep South, grew up in the UK, and now lives in Japan with his wonderful wife, two beautiful daughters, and their feline overlords. His books cover the spectrum of science fiction, from hard SF, through space opera, to comedic science fiction, but all deliver his trademark blend of rich characterization, gripping plots, and unexpected twists. Until the day when we can vacation on Mars, this is as good as it gets!

Don’t answer that …
Fletcher Connolly hasn’t got a lot to lose. Since he, and half the galaxy, signed on to the rat race of the technological relics trade, Fletch has come to terms with the idea that he will join the ranks of unlucky explorers that perish light years from home without a dime to his name.
But bankruptcy is a great motivator. With friends and family counting on him to strike it rich, Fletch embarks on an unwilling quest for alien treasure. His decrepit exploration ship, the Skint Idjit, and her successor, the Intergalactic Bogtrotter, plunge disastrously through the wildest regions of the Interstellar Railroad … from an uninhabited planet appropriately named Suckass … to a deliberately misnamed mafia-run planet known as Arcadia … to a rogue planet inhabited by aliens resembling cuddly teddy bears … to a moon covered with giant cacti … and ultimately to the supermassive black hole in the center of the galaxy, where Fletch’s terrible judgment comes back to bite him in the rear for the last time.
Epic catastrophes and belly laughs pile up breathlessly in this delightful comic sci-fi adventure, a worthy successor to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
This complete edition of The Reluctant Adventures Of Fletcher Connolly On The Interstellar Railroad contains all four episodes of Fletch’s unlucky career:

In the last decades of the twenty-first century, ten families seeking to escape a devastated Earth focus on constructing spaceships to colonize the world they call New Eden, in the Paradisi System.

In this latest title in the acclaimed 'Future Chronicles' series of speculative fiction anthologies, twelve authors take us on that incredible journey with adventurers, scientists and colonists, as they push the boundaries against the unknown, against alien civilization, and themselves.
Discover Chronicle Worlds. Discover Paradisi.
In search of Pippa, an exiled teenage heiress, independent space freighter captain Mike Starrunner accepts a cargo for the Hurtworlds, the most hellish planets in the Cluster. The cargo is dirty, and could land the crew in jail ... but that's never stopped Mike before. This time, the prize is not just money, but the truth about the Traveller plot that's turned Mike's life upside-down.
But the job is a deadly trap for the Shifters.
On a ravaged prison planet, Mike and the crew tangle again with the predatorial Sophia and her Traveller allies. Pippa is the bait in a trap to destroy Mike ... and potentially wipe the Shifters off the face of the galaxy. Sophia and the Travellers stand on the brink of grasping unimaginable power, and now Mike is the only man standing in their way.
This ancient secret could shatter the uneasy peace of the Cluster.
To defeat the criminal conspiracy, Mike must evade the long arm of the law, while untangling an intrigue that stretches across light years and centuries. If he fails, Sophia's murderous plot will succeed, and Mike's name will go down in history as a detested traitor.
Join the crew of the St. Clare as they struggle to put the clues together, battle murderous criminals, and above all, hang onto their humanity. If you’re a fan of Firefly or The Expanse, you’ll love this interstellar adventure set in a cluster of stars far, far away, in a future where we’ve colonized the stars and even altered our own DNA, but remain all too human.
