Thank you Drew for the short story. Nice twists in this story. And a good trailer for the main book. :D

Very nice cover image - but that title font doesn't grab me. Mind you, I'm an old curmudgeon when it comes to fonts.

All four (five?) novels are using the same font, yes? I presume that was a joint decision then? Or was it the publisher's?

Publisher makes these sorts of decisions. We just see the end result and perhaps get to comment if we spot major problems. Still, I'm very happy with all 5 covers and especially so with the anthology cover! :)

Glad you enjoyed the short story folks.

Another little tidbit. The Prism system, around which Elite: Reclamation is centred, has appeared in the latest Alpha of Elite: Dangerous...

Received the book, and just in time before I go on a 3 week exercise where I'll have some spare time in the evenings to read.
Also, thank you for the mention in the book Drew. I have to admit that a bit of nostalgia came over me and I just had to reread the posts here on the forum leading up to your kickstarter. Great times and I almost miss the excitement.
You have my whole hearted admiration and congratulations on completing this project.
Well done Drew.
I look forward to reading the book.

Thanks guys. Gimi - I think it was a special temporal point in the space-time continuum! Glad everyone has got their copy.

A quick update just to close off this phase. Enjoy the book folks!
