The Sovereign Era: Year One Anthology Available Now!

I’m very pleased to announce the release of “The Sovereign Era: Year One,” an anthology of seven tales written by authors who are pretty well known in certain circles — folks like J. C. Hutchins, Mur Lafferty, P. G. Holyfield, Nathan Lowell, Matt Wallace, J. R. Blackwell and Jared Axelrod!

This collection has its origin in the all-day web-a-thon I produced on the occasion of the Swarm Press release of “Brave Men Run — A Novel of the Sovereign Era.” On that day, I read each of these stories live on streaming video… but they’ve never been seen in print until now.

As of right now, the collection is available on this site and from for the Kindle. Soon enough, it will also be “The Sovereign Era: Year One” is also available in paperback from and every online bookstore you’d care to patronize. To be honest, if you like e-books, I encourage you to purchase it in that format, since the authors involved stand to earn more of a percentage from each e-book sale.

In “Hazy Days and Cloudy Nights,” we’re seeing a little of what happened in the months before the Sovereign Era began. The Sovereign Era’s beginnings are depicted in “Brave Men Run — A Novel of the Sovereign Era.” I hope you’ll purchase “The Sovereign Era: Year One” and take in seven different glimpses into how things went in the months that followed. On behalf of the authors and cover artist Jeffrey Himmelman, I thank you very much!


  1. What are you supposed to do when you order/pay for the ebooks and all you get is an empty .zip file and there is no one to contact?

    • Hi, Matt — I’m sorry you’re having difficulty with the .zip file. As for there being no one to contact, have you checked out the various means to get hold of me on the Contact page of this site? Your best bet is e-mail. Please be sure to include as much information about the error as possible, including, at a minimum, the operating system, browser and e-mail client you’re using.

  2. Yea i emailed you and you got back me and got the ebooks to me.

    Thanks again.

  3. Just bought the kindle version, Matt. I’ll start reading it today at work :) I’ll keep an eye out for the print edition and plan on picking that up as well. That cover art alone is worth picking up the print format. Great job!

    • Thanks very much, RJ! The wait is over for the paperback version — Amazon picked it up last week. The cover by Jeffrey Himmelman is indeed gorgeous!
