Jon Del Arroz began his writing career in high school, providing book reviews and the occasional article for the local news magazine, The Valley Citizen. From there, he went on to write a weekly web comic, Flying Sparks, which has been hailed by Comic Book Resources as “the kind of stuff that made me fall in love with early Marvel comics.” He
has several published short stories, most recently providing flash fiction for AEG’s weird west card game, Doomtown: Reloaded, and a micro-setting for the Tiny Frontiers RPG. Writing and reading Space Opera is his life!

Star Realms: Rescue Run is his debut novel. You can find him during baseball season with his family at about half of the Oakland A’s home games in section 124.

I am just learning some of the author goodreads tools. I just put a lot on hold for Steampunk Month, which I'm reading Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, as well as The Guns Above by Robyn Bennis, and more if I have time. After that I'm going to get back to my regularly scheduled reading which will be:

A Pius Man - Declan Finn
Star Wars: The Last Command - Timothy Zahn
Return of Tarzan - Edgar Rice Burroughs
Generation Warriors - Anne McCaffrey & Elizabeth Moon
The High Crusade - Poul Anderson
A Moon Full Of Stars - Jon Mollison

That's when I'm not reading a friend's manuscript for critique, which I do a lot of. That will probably get me through summer. I wish I had more time to read, but gotta write. Thanks for being there! (less)

“The God of War should not be shoving a shopping cart piled with all my earthly belongings through a heat wave in New York City. Yet here I was, doing exactly that. Fuck me, I’d come to a low estate, and I was bitter about it. I growled to myself and aimed a much-diminished bolt of power at a man standing at a hot dog cart, and I felt a stab of gratification when he began yelling at the vendor over some imagined missing ingredient. It was cheap, but it was what I had anymore.”
Jon Del Arroz, Planetary Anthology: Mars

“Julius frowned, staring at the holo. There had to be a way. "I hate to say this, as it usually only leads to ruin, but we could ask the legislature for ideas." "Are you sure you want to deal with one of their sessions? They can get rowdy, and it might lead to some bad optics for the news media," Erin said.”
