The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Dave Freer - Blue Tyson

Dave Freer is a writer of science fiction and fantasy, often with Eric Flint. He has surpassed double figures in novels, and is also a writer of short fiction. Slow Train To Arcturus and the James H. Schmitz pastiche sequels such as Wizard of Karres are of subgenre interest, The former sounds interesting, given its origins and inspiration from an old novel. The Forlorn is also of interest, and the Rats, Bats books and short stories may also appeal, with their human and intelligent animal teamups. The Forlorn is in The Baen Free Library, and others at webscriptions.
