Brian Stableford is a science fiction and fantasy author who has written over 60 novels and a much larger number of short stories. He is also involved in translating some French science fiction at Black Coat Press. You can find some of his work available at Amazon, Fictionwise, etc. but unfortunately most of it is not, and this includes earlier in his career he had some space opera work, such as the six novel Hooded Swan series, about a pilot strongarmed into some missions to get himself out of trouble. Also the Daedalus series about a ship seeking to regain contact with lost human colonies. There's also the occasional short story of interest such as The Plurality of Worlds.
