COVER REVEAL – REDUX – JACK CAMPBELL’s THE SISTER PARADOX


Sometimes we like to switch things up and try a new approach. This is the first of our ‘refresh’ projects, Jack Campbell’s The Sister Paradox. 

The next title we will be revisiting is The Side of Good/The Side of Evil.

Liam Doesn’t Have a Sister…and She’s Weird!

Liam is his parents’ only child, and that’s just fine with him.

Until the day the sister-he-never-had shows up at school.

Just to make it worse, the sword-wielding Kari tells him
they have an important quest to complete.

And that’s how Liam finds himself dragged into another world,
facing basilisks and unicorns, cursed objects, elves, and even a dragon,
all magical and dangerous, but none more so than the sister he didn’t have
until that morning. A sister who turns out to be quite good with her sword,
and ready to use it when faced with things like a dragon
as long as her brother is at her side.

Liam begins to realize two things: it’s going to be a very long day,
and having a sister can be weird.

But most unsettling of all, he’s not sure he minds…


Jack Campbell

“Jack Campbell” is the pseudonym for John G. Hemry, a retired Naval officer (and graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis). As Jack Campbell, he writes The Lost Fleet series of military science fiction novels, as well as the Beyond the Frontier continuation of The Lost Fleet, and The Lost Stars series (a spin-off of The Lost Fleet). He has also written the Stark’s War series and the Sinclair/”JAG in space” series, and has written many shorter stories featuring space opera, fantasy, time travel, and alternate history. Many of these stories can be found in the three Jack Campbell ebook anthologies. He lives with his wife (the Indomitable S) and three children (two of whom are autistic) in Maryland.

mam-proof-finalAnyone who enjoys military science fiction in general, and speculations on the future of machines, and machine/human interfacing and machine intelligence specifically, will be thoroughly entertained. -David Felts, SFReader


Gaslight and GrimmLiked the premise of the book and thought the authors all did a good job of successfully merging fairytale tropes with steampunk ambiance, to create a whole that was greater than the sum of its (carefully geared and lubricated) parts. Anna, Kobo
