Coming Line Up – My Next Sci-Fi Books

Hey, all. Well, I really need to clone myself. I am currently writing five books at the same time. Yup, 5. And I don’t seem to have enough time. Here’s a peek at the upcoming covers!

Listen to Chapter One of: Evolution (Book2 of The Hyperscape Project)


Long awaited sequel to The Awakening. Will Nick Bannon stop the Mok’tu before the galaxy falls to their evil plans?

Resistance forces have pushed the enemy back against seemly insurmountable odds. But it doesn’t take long for the biomechanoid race known as the Mok’tu to stop the Resistance dead in their tracks when they discover a way to neutralize the only effective weapon against them.

Join the crew as they discover the true origin of the Mok’tu.

5 Star Review of The Awakening By Julian on Goodreads.


‘s review

Sep 30, 14

bookshelves: 2014

Read in August, 2014
“I absolutely loved this story. I really like scifi stories that throw little old humans into the universe, only for them to realise they are not alone, and are also the equivalent of technology cavemen compared to the aliens they meet, except for one single technological advantage that they have recently stumbled upon that no other alien race has thought of yet. After running straight into a hornets nest, the main character needs to make an escape from a powerful enemy that wants his tech, with only his woeful little ship before he is captured, exploited and risks leading the enemy back to Earth.

For anyone who enjoyed this book, also see Evan C. Currie’s Odyssey One series which runs along a similar vein and is also a fantastic read.”

Thanks Julian!

Evolution 4 Star Review By Corrinthia

BookTwoNew3D3004.0 out of 5 stars Another great space adventure! September 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Evolution is book 2 in the Hyperscape series, and it’s another great, fun science fiction adventure story. It begins a few months after where book 1 leaves off, with Nick Bannon now Admiral of the fleet as they battle the bio-mechanical Mok’tu. Arya is now the recognized Asirian queen. At first I was worried she would be relegated to the side because of this, but Arya isn’t one to allow herself to become a inactive character. My favorite character, Karg, has a strong storyline in this book, and Sirok is in it as well.With the original ‘cast’ assembled, Swan leads readers on a wild, entertaining and action-packed ride as Nick struggles to bring an end to the Mok’tu, fulfill the roll of a prophecy he doesn’t believe in, keep the fleet together and keep Arya out of too much trouble. There’s a side-story with Karg and his past I loved learning about, though some of the exposition with Karg and Trol was a bit long. Added to this are a few unexpected twists as Hypserscape ventures into the realms of multi-verse sci-fi.

Suitable for science fiction adventure fans of all ages, there is a lot of action in this book – almost too much, and that’s where it lost a star with me. I felt the action and adventure overshadowed the story and character development at times. The “out of pot and into the fire” pacing, from one crazy action scene to the next, left me a little breathless at times and confused in others. A younger audience, or those who love high-adventure, will enjoy this aspect more than I did.

It was still a highly enjoyable read for me, and I am very much looking forward to book 3!

5 Star Review by Charlie Thurman

THP3D1clr★★★★★ Fun

Two groups of bad aliens. Several groups of good aliens. A smart ass Earthman. What more do you need? Well written and fast paced. Really fun reading.

Audible Version Coming Soon!

The Audible.com version of The Hyperscape Project: Book One is now in production! I had 16 auditions from some great narrators and felt like I was judging American Idol. It was a difficult decision, but I finally decided on Meral Mathews to narrate it. I will post a sample when available. Thanks everyone for making this first book a success! – Donald Swan
