Anderson Gentry

Anderson Gentry grew up in the hills and trout streams of northeast Iowa’s wooded uplands, gaining a keen interest in wildlife, camping, hunting, fishing and the outdoors.

Gentry served in the U.S. Army in the last years of the Cold War, including service in the Persian Gulf War. Captain Gentry concluded his military career by serving on the staff of the Command Surgeon, U.S. Army, Europe. Along the way, he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Biology.

In 2005, Double Dragon Publishing released The Crider Chronicles, Anderson Gentry’s first major novel. The Crider Chronicles received a 2005 Preditors & Editors Reader’s Choice Award for Top Ten Science Fiction Novel. The Galactic Confederacy series has since continued with the 2008 release of Sky of Diamonds. Two more novels, Ghost Stories and Higher Learning will complete the Confederacy series. In 2008, Double Dragon also released the first in the Barrett’s Privateers series.

Anderson Gentry’s vision of the future combines a high-tech, planet-hopping world presented in a gritty, real style that has led some to call him the “Tom Clancy of sci-fi.” His fast-paced, hard-hitting style combines a unique blend of outdoor savvy, real-world military experience and realistic character development to the sci-fi genre.

Humanity needed space. Humanity needed resources. Humanity needed the stars.

Now, an interstellar war is coming, and humanity desperately needs heroes.
In space, even the hottest blood runs cold.
In a Galaxy where peace is breaking out all over, it’s not always easy for a pirate to adapt. In order to feed her crew and keep her ship running, Captain Jean Barrett has been forced to walk on the shady side of the law – and she’s beginning to enjoy it.
Does time exist as a separate dimension? Does it have a unique place with definable limits in space? Does it move independently according to its own purpose? Or does it only move when other things move, completely dependent on prevailing conditions and binding dimensions in its surrounding space-a causal result bound to the whole? Perhaps it’s just a simpleminded construct humans have concocted to explain the inexplicable. Is it vaguely possible that it’s a set of branes slightly out of sync and we may pass from one to the next at will? Maybe it’s a simple kink in dimensions that can be crossed by anyone walking in precisely the right direction. It could be that it’s just a mental state altered simply by a minor amount of imagination applied correctly. Perhaps it is no more than a drug- or mantra-induced change of mental state-something hallucinated-something seen but unseeable. Or is there more to it than we can fathom? In the world of physics, all of this-and much more-is being looked into by serious, conservative scientists as well as those with their mental equipment more loosely adjusted-or even unfastened completely, their brains rolling about like marbles in an empty railroad freight car.
