Radio Active #79: On the Edge of Summer

by Ken Newquist / June 21, 2009

On this episode of Nuketown Radio Active I start building my summer reading list (and yes, inspite of all this dreary rain and 60 degree weather, I do believe summer is coming), recruit players for my weekly Star Wars campaign, geek out about Origins 2009, and take a look at the games that have been consuming my free time this spring.

Meanwhile in Netheads I come across a treasure trove of modules, campaign settings and other resources for D&D and contemplate a Savage Worlds-powered Star Trek campaign.

I read a couple last year on mobipocket from fictionwise, and just picked up 3 and 4 (on ereader and kindle, fwiw).

I like the series; I consider them mindless adventure, not quite david drake but absorbing and fun rides.

How did you find them after all?


I enjoyed Dauntless; like you say its good old-fashioned adventure-based space opera. I loved the space battles (the lightspeed-delayed strategies were a great touch) and I'm looking forward to picking up Book #2. It reminded me of the Jack Aubrey novels by Patrick O'Brian, which is definitely a good thing. :)
