In the distant future, on the planet Fortune, tech is low, pirates and dracos fill the skies, and the price of doing business is dangerously steep.
Six years ago, a single act of rebellion cost Captain John Pitte his command and his honor. Now all his hopes rest in keeping his crew—in particular his first mate, Jagati O’Bannion—together, and their battered airship aloft.
But he soon discovers that running an honest freight business is not for the faint of heart. Between pirates, storms, taxes, and bees (don’t ask), the Errant is in danger of being grounded—for good.
So when a mysterious woman offers salvation by way of a lucrative retrieval job, John quickly signs on, only to discover that neither the job, nor the woman, are what they appear.
Now John, Jagati, and the rest of the crew are on the run and embroiled in a hive of madness and deception, while everything he hoped to save teeters on the brink of disaster.
Outrageous Fortune is first book of the Errant Freight series, featuring the Firefly-esque exploits of the Errant crew. If you like your action with a side of snark, you’ll love this free-wheeling mashup of science fantasy, steampunk, and adventure.
