Small Miracles front cover (TPB edition)

(October 7, 2014) Two books in two weeks. It’s a Small Miracle!

Last week, Ed’s energy-crisis-thriller Energized was re-released in mass-market paperback format. This week — from a different publisher — his medical-nanotech thriller Small Miracles (which had briefly gone out of print) is re-released, in this case in trade paperback format.

 

 


Energized front cover(September 30, 2014) Ed’s energy-crisis, the-Russians-are-up-to-no-good, all-too-timely, technothriller Energized was re-released today in mass-market paperback format. (The novel remains available in hardback, ebook, and audio-book formats).

Meanwhile, two other Lerner technothrillers are about to return to print (and electrons).

From Ed’s blog, see his re-release announcement(s), “Re-Energized,” for news about all these reissues — and for a bonus item: a great collection of essays about genre writing.

 

 


Front cover for "Fate of Worlds"(July 2, 2013) The concluding book of the Fleet of Worlds series and the Ringworld series was re-released today as a mass-market paperback. (Yes, that’s two grand adventure series.) If you’ve enjoyed the earlier books in paperback format, now you can complete your set.

As SF Site called it: A single triumphant work of vivid imagination and colorful adventure, fraught with enough action, intrigue, surprises and human drama to satisfy any SF fan.

A_Time_Foreclosed_Front_600x900(June 19, 2013) News items on this page typically announce Ed’s latest book, but he also writes at shorter length, most often for magazines. Magazine stories, alas, quickly disappear from view — but in an era of ebooks and print-on-demand publishing, that’s changing. Ed has now joined the ranks of authors experimenting with stories published standalone. Beginning with “A Time Foreclosed” … this mind-bending time-travel novella will keep you guessing until the final page.

While Ed experiments with new formats, the publisher is experimenting, too — for a short while, anyway — with prices. If you’ve ever wondered about Ed’s short fiction, it’s hard to beat a 99-cent ebook.

(May 21, 2013) Ed doesn’t only write novels. A glance at Ed’s biblio page shows his writing — back to 1991(!) — appears often in Analog Science Fiction and Fact. (He’s read the magazine for far longer.) He has contributed fiction at every length from short shorts to four-part serials; science and technology articles; even a guest editorial and a poem.

And so Ed was delighted last Saturday (see image at left) when one of his science articles took the Analytical Laboratory (aka, Analog readers poll) award for best science article of 2012.


(February 22, 2013) Hurtling asteroids! Grand structures in space, two miles square! Whole oil refineries blasted and set ablaze from space! And that’s just one Edward M. Lerner novel. Think there ought to be a movie?

We do, too. See the new Movies &TV page.

 


Earphones(February 7, 2013) We’re queried almost as often about the availability of Ed’s writing in audio formats as about ebook versions. So: Ed’s delighted to announce that with today’s audio release of Small Miracles, all twelve novels and both all-fiction collections are finally available in at least one audio format. They’re downloadable from Audible.com; many are also available on CD and even tape cassette.

For the complete list of books available for listening, check out (from Ed’s blog) “Sounding Off.”

(If this has gotten you wondering about ebook availability, check out (also from Ed’s blog) “Kindle-ing interest” and “A note to my UK readers … kindling.”)


Front cover for "Fate of Worlds"

(August 21, 2012)  It’s not often that one book concludes *two* popular series, but this novel does. (Which two? Larry Niven’s bestselling Ringworld series, and Larry’s and Ed’s companion novels, the Fleet of Worlds series collaborations.)

For the explosive double-series finale — and that’s not hyperbole — check out:


Energized front cover(July 17, 2012) Undertaking to write a novel is a major commitment — of time, effort, and self. It’s no wonder that to first see one’s novel in print (or electrons) is a rush. Ed says that’s true, at least for him, no matter how often he goes through the process. As he has again with his latest novel, released today.

What is Energized? A near-future thriller of international intrigue and crippling energy shortages — and of a few brave men and women defying both. A tale drawn from Ed’s seven years as a NASA contractor and the latest in aerospace technology.

Cover for Frontiers of Space, Time, and Thought(April 4, 2012)   Truth can be stranger than fiction — and what’s not to like about strange? And so, Ed being a computer engineer and physicist as well as an SF author, his just-released collection looks — in fact and fiction — at some Really Big Questions.

Have you ever wondered what humanity could do if a dinosaur-killer-sized asteroid came heading our way? Or how your sneakers are ratting you out? Or how we could possibly communicate with an extraterrestrial if we did meet one? For answers to those questions (and much, much more) check out Frontiers:
