Here’s a sample chapter from the book I’m working on, Spacecraft of the First World War. Just hit the 'download' button to read the PDF. :)

Told in an in-universe style, it tells of the ships and events involved in the events that occur after The War of the Worlds.

Might suggest "Spacecraft of the First Worlds War." Artistic but would cause google problems with typos and misremembering of the title.

I am greatly looking forward to the finished product. All these teases about the history and tech have got me itching to understand it fully.

So it's more of an alternate history timeline rather than a story "proper"... Huh. Looks cool regardless.

War of the worlds took place in the 1890s. So then does this take place in the early years of the 1900s? I just want to know before i read it.

It was written in 1897 and the year was never made explicit in the book. 1902 is the most common year assigned to it by those writing after the book, and I've kept this chronology.

Most of what is covered takes place from roughly 1902 to 1931, though certain later events are referenced.

I assume that Humanity attacks Mars for revenge?

Revenge is certainly a component. Over and above that, there is a very real sense of kill-or-be-killed as well.

I really liked this chapter of the book! Tell me please, will it describe the other parties? In particular, the Russian Empire. La la la la

Russia, and her complex history during this period will be featured as well.

You can use Create Space to produce a physical edition using print on demand. That will give you automatic distribution through Amazon at a very small initial investment. I have done three books through them and have been very happy.

Release date will be around the end of the year, if all goes well. Pricing is to be determined, but will probably be fairly aggressive, especially at first. I want to get this into people's hands.

I would like that, but that's going to depend on whether an offering like that seems like it could break even. It's something I'm definitely thinking about.

I hope to finish it by the fall. After that, so many factors will come into play that I can't say. I will keep everyone informed, though. :)

I have a great live for the anime 'uchuu swnkan yamato 2199' an also love art about war or ships in general. If this becomes an actual thing I would live to see it, it looks amazing just from the cover!
