Word of the Nerd recently previewed and reviewed Arcana’s upcoming Deadly Harvest. You can read the full review BY CLICKING HERE, but see the excerpt below and find out how you can order a copy of the book.
“Take one part Deadliest Catch, and one part Firefly. Season with a dash ofPirates of the Caribbean. Mix until consistency is smooth. Garnish with a pinch of Aliens, and serve at absolute zero. This is the recipe for Deadly Harvest, from Arcana…
Messrs. Hendrix and Nelson tell a fine story, moving the plot along at a quick pace and, with Mr. Roumboulias’ artwork, really convey the urgency and danger these miners face in their daily activities. In this line of work anyone can get killed at any time, just by doing their job, and the creative team does a great job of showing this. This really is a “summer blockbuster” type of book, a quick fun read, full of action and adventure.“

DESCRIPTION: Core mining, the deadliest job in the galaxy, draws only the bravest, or craziest, workers around. Bumping up to asteroids, typically propelling at astronomical speeds towards distant stars, the miners harvest minerals essential to interstellar travel and commerce. Close quarters, dangerous conditions, and less than a half inch of polymer sheath stand between them and swift oblivion. When the Harvest Moon stumbles upon a goldmine dangerously close to a star, the last thing they expect to find is an ancient alien race preparing to hatch an infestation throughout the system. Armed with mining tools and sour attitudes, Captain Cyrus Layne and his crew must survive the horrors of space and an unfamiliar enemy to escape with their lives.
