How's this for something new? While looking for something else I stumbled upon this upcoming book by author Nathan Long and for those who thought Dejah Thoris needed more sword wielding time well this one is for you! Here's the description from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Jane-Carver-Waar-Nathan-Long/dp/1597803960:
Jane Carver is nobody''s idea of a space princess. A hard-ridin'', hard-lovin'' biker chick and ex-Airborne Ranger, Jane is as surprised as anyone else when, on the run from the law, she ducks into the wrong cave at the wrong time-and wakes up butt-naked on an exotic alien planet light-years away from everything she''s ever known. Waar is a savage world of four-armed tiger-men, sky-pirates, slaves, gladiators, and purple-skinned warriors in thrall to a bloodthirsty code of honor and chivalry. Caught up in a disgraced nobleman''s quest to win back the hand of a sexy alien princess, Jane encounters bizarre wonders and dangers unlike anything she ever ran into back home. Then again, Waar has never seen anyone like Jane before . . . . Both a loving tribute and scathing parody of the swashbuckling space fantasies of yore, Jane Carver of Waar introduces an unforgettable new science fiction heroine.
I might have to pick this up when it comes out March 6. If anything it will provide some reading while waiting for John Carter three days later.
