Editorial Reviews

Review

I finished The Powers of the Earth and immediately read book two.  I'm all for this brand of unapologetic reactionary science fiction where we move out into space and beat the problems into submission.
-- John Carmack, founder id Software, lead programmer of Doom, Quake
This is a wonderful, sprawling, action-packed story with interesting characters, complicated conflicts, and realistic treatment of what a small colony faces when confronted by a hostile planet of nine billion slaves. Think of this as Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress done better.   I devoured these books and give them my highest recommendation.   
-- John Walker, founder of AutoDesk
You've achieved something I've been hoping for decades someone would pull off - a book that is at once an affectionate tribute to and criticism/response to "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress".
The Aristillus books are very strong.
-- Eric S Raymond, author The Cathedral and the Bazaar
Better than "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress"
-- Russel May 
Just what the market for libertarian SF is crying out for.
-- Ken MacLeod, author of The Cassinni Division, Cosmonaut Keep, Newton's Wake
Humor, firepower, and dogs!  Very L Neil Smith-ish.
-- Claire Wolfe, author of 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution
Just plain cool.
-- Kurt Schlichter, author People's Republic
One of the most riveting and fascinating books I've read in years. Highly recommended.
-- Robert Kroese, author of Mercury Falls, The Big Sheep and Starship Grifters.
The work of a professional writer who knows how fiction works and uses narrative techniques and tropes consciously and purposefully.
-- William H Stoddard, author of GURPS Steampunk
I'm sure this can be justified as your lovely American free speech and not hate speech or malicious communication, and yes, I'm sure Corcoran has a perfect right to say it and all that shit. Guess what? I have a perfect right not to like it, and a right to not be associated with the nutter who spews it.
-- Warren Ellis, author of Transmetropolitan, Iron Man Extremis, The Authority
Stupid, ill-advised, and, frankly, immoral
-- Radley Balko, former Huffington Post senior writer
How is Travis Corcoran still a free man?
-- The Daily Kos

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Forged in darkest Massachusetts, Travis (&quot;TJIC&quot; to friends and enemies alike), escaped from the People's Republik and managed to bribe his way across the border. He now resides with his wife and dogs on a 56 acre farm in New Hampshire where he writes code, forges knives, raises / slaughters / butchers goats and pigs, and tinkers with his 50 year old Bridgeport milling machine.

His debut novel, The Powers of the Earth, won the Prometheus Award for Best Novel in 2018 - the first self-published novel to ever do so.

His second novel, Causes of Separation, won the Prometheus Award for Best Novel in 2019 - the first time an author has won two years running, and the first time both a book and its sequel won.
