Peter Kazmaier is the award-winning author of five books. The Halcyon Cycle is Peter Kazmaier’s first book series. In writing this colonization epic, he has been able to pursue a life-long dream of writing fast-paced novels that explore the intersection between adventure, science, faith, and philosophy.

His third novel, The Battle for Halcyon won the 2016 Word Award in the category of Speculative Fiction. This sequel to The Halcyon Dislocation follows the fate of the dislocated University of Halcyon and the splinter colony Eleytheria as they fight for survival in a parallel world.

Peter has begun a new series with the publication of Coventry 2091, his fifth novel. This story follows the surprising adventures of Jacob Kraiser as he’s sent to a

I'm afraid I'm only 60,000 words into a book that I plan to be 120,000.

After a false start (I had to abandon several chapters) set me back, I have been writing fairly steadily. I wish I had better news for you, but writing for me seems to be a slow process.

Having said that, I'm excited about what I have written so far. I take the reader through the eyes of familiar characters to a continent well below sea level east of Feiramar. There are many surprises, new adventures, and (I hope) many nail-biting moments. Thank you for asking. I wish I could write faster.(less)

With respect to the outrageous $92.48 that's almost four times higher the list price. I have asked my publisher/distributor and they also have no idea where that listing is coming from.

The book is also listed at Chapters/Indigo with free shipping to a store near you. Link: https://goo.gl/SXuXoe .(less)

Study Guide for COVENTRY 2091. Part 3. Chapters 4-7

The Founding of Coventry Special thanks to a friend for her help with the counseling content of the next chapter(s)

When I first wrote about the sessions between Giesbrecht and Jacob, I was primarily driven by a desire to fill in Kraiser’s backstory, reveal some of Jacob’s character, and, in an unobtrusive way, present some of the details of the founding of Coventry.

I have no expertise in counse

“[Professor Kinnerton] Has the fact that we have about 97 percent of our DNA in common with chimpanzees escaped you? How can you still argue we are special and have a soul when we are so obviously animals? ... [Al Gleeson] With due respect sir, the 97 percent is precisely the problem. Are chimpanzees 97 percent of the way to splitting the atom? Are they 97 percent of the way to writing their first sonnet? Someone tittered at the back of the room. Are bonobos 97 percent of the way to putting the first bonobo on the moon? Is there an orangutan somewhere with a simian Mona Lisa 97 percent finished?”
Peter Kazmaier, The Halcyon Dislocation

“Why tell me to be reasonable when you should be telling me to be courageous?" [Arlana to Dave in The Battle for Halcyon]”
Peter Kazmaier, The Battle for Halcyon

“Our early success, blessing that it was, made us complacent and we weren't sufficiently afraid of what came next. Sometimes having a little fear early saves one from experiencing a big fear later on. [Al Gleeson in THE HALCYON DISLOCATION]”
