Lords of Kobol:: Kara Thrace as Artemis

“The tops of the high mountains tremble
and the tangled wood echoes awesomely with the outcry of beasts:
earth quakes and the sea also where fishes shoal.
But the goddess with a bold heart turns
every way destroying the race of wild beasts:
and when she is satisfied and has cheered her heart,
then the huntress who delights in arrows”


Lords of Kobol:: Lee Adama as Apollo

“O Delion king, whose light-producing eye views all within,
and all beneath the sky; whose locks are gold, whose oracles are sure,
who omens good revealest, and precepts pure;
hear me entreating for he human kind, hear,
and be present with benignant mind;
for thou surveyest this boundless aither all,
and every part of this terrestrial ball abundant, blessed”


In case you didn’t know, I’ve written a series of prequels to the recent Battlestar Galactica series titled Lords of Kobol.

I just finished Book Five: Of Gods and Titans.

Books One, Two and Three form a trilogy, while Book Four is a kind of “alternate universe” version of events.  Book Five is a prequel to the trilogy.

You can download all five right here.  And they’re free.


Are you a fan of the recent Battlestar Galactica series?  You may enjoy my series of prequels.

Lords of Kobol - Book One: Apotheosis begins with the ancient times on the human homeworld when mankind lived alongside the gods during the Golden Age.  Then, in a fit of arrogance, scientists create life of their own, birthing the Thirteenth Tribe.

In Lords of Kobol - Book Two: Descent, learn how the gods came to power and of the titanic struggle they faced against monotheists; a struggle that still simmers.

In Lords of Kobol - Book Three: The Final Exodus, the dots are connected as humanity flees Kobol in the face of total destruction.  Gods fight each other, the Tomb of Athena earns its name, the Blaze is unleashed, and the Caravan of the Heavens is launched.  And, behind all things, the messengers of the One True God watch.

Lords of Kobol - Book Four: Tales from Ancient Days is an alternate version of the trilogy.  In it, I utilize a different story and plot with a very Tolkienesque tone.

Lords of Kobol - Book Five: Of Gods and Titans, however, goes back to the trilogy and shows us the full and complete history of Zeus, Hera, and the Olympians.  All of these things have happened before and all of these things will happen again.

All of these books are FREE and can be found HERE.  And they’re well-reviewed, too.

And, coming soon, Colonies of Kobol.

So. No Shit. There I was.

In my car, headed to work. Half listening to the radio, when I hear dude say “Kobol.” Instantly I am paying attention, as surely there must be some breaking news from the BSG universe that I have missed! Perhaps A Movie based on The Lords of Kobol, maybe Starbuck is back from the dead. Again. So I listen ever so closely….

And discover I’m listening to a commercial for Kobalt tools. 

What the Frak.
