Marc Miller's Traveller Novel:
Agent of the Imperium:
A Story of the Traveller Universe.
I have always wanted to show my vision of the Traveller universe in a fiction format: from the earliest days of role-playing (that would be the late 1970s, for those who are counting), the thought of a sprawling, star-spanning adventure through the Imperium has been there in the back (and sometime the front) of my mind.
With the completion of the Traveller5 core rules, and with all of its concepts fresh in my mind, the inspiration came to me in a flash late June, and I have been crafting scenes ever since. This project is the publication — ebook, hardcopy, and hardcover limited first edition, and perhaps more, of my first novel:
Agent of the Imperium
Jonathan Bland is a Decider, empowered to deal with the inevitable crises of empire. He speaks with the voice of the Emperor himself. He has killed more people than anyone in the history of Humanity.
He has saved ten times that.
