Waiting on Wednesday 07/15/20

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Mogsy’s Pick

Persephone Station by Stina Leicht (January 5, 2021 by Gallery/Saga Press)

All right, I’ll admit it, I’m a bit obsessed with anything to do with The Mandalorian, so when I saw the blurb for this I automatically took notice. And I mean, who doesn’t love a space Western? I’ve also been curious about Leicht’s work for a long time, so maybe I’ll finally be able to give her a try.

“Hugo award–nominated author Stina Leicht has created a take on space opera for fans of The Mandalorian and Cowboy Bebop in this high-stakes adventure.

Persephone Station, a seemingly backwater planet that has largely been ignored by the United Republic of Worlds becomes the focus for the Serrao-Orlov Corporation as the planet has a few secrets the corporation tenaciously wants to exploit.

Rosie–owner of Monk’s Bar, in the corporate town of West Brynner, caters to wannabe criminals and rich Earther tourists, of a sort, at the front bar. However, exactly two types of people drank at Monk’s back bar: members of a rather exclusive criminal class and those who sought to employ them.

Angel–ex-marine and head of a semi-organized band of beneficent criminals, wayward assassins, and washed up mercenaries with a penchant for doing the honorable thing is asked to perform a job for Rosie. What this job reveals will effect Persephone and put Angel and her squad up against an army. Despite the odds, they are rearing for a fight with the Serrao-Orlov Corporation. For Angel, she knows that once honor is lost, there is no regaining it. That doesn’t mean she can’t damned well try.”

  1. Great pick! It was a mention of this on social media somewhere that sent me scrambling for copies of her Cold Iron & Black Thorne, so one way or another she’s getting read this year. 🙂

  2. I’m not quite familiar with The Mandalorian, besides knowing what it’s about and having seen the pictures of that ADORABLE Baby Yoda, but this novel has some definite Firefly vibe that makes me want to read it – now. 😀
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Very nice. I’m actually not familiar with The Mandalorian, except in name. But I do know and love Cowboy Bebop, at least the anime version. This might be worth checking out.
