Just in time for the holidays, The Cronian Incident (my first published novel) is available for free on Kindle! For those who don’t know, it’s a gritty, hard-boiled detective story set in the late 23rd century amid a backdrop of Solar System colonization, terraforming efforts, and factional politics.
The book has gardened a 4.7/5 star rating on Amazon. Here’s what the reviewers had said:
“This was one of the best science fiction novels I’ve read in some time. Its universe is vast in scope, its plot full of intrigue, its characters delightfully well rounded with just the right mix of flaws and strengths.“
“This story was a good read that sucked me in and kept me wondering. I particularly enjoyed the world building aspects, and the overarching storyline which is clearly going to continue in the next book.”
“I really like how the action is taking place on various planets/moons of the solar system, and am eagerly waiting for further installments of the story.“
“Mr. Williams delivers an exciting tale in this story. It was a very enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to seeing more from him.”
“The Cronian Incident (The Formist Series) (Volume 1) by Matthew Williams is a slow-paced, contemplative science fiction story that fans of The Expanse will really enjoy… Williams injects a realism into this splendid science fiction story that is reminiscent of some of the best in the genre.”
And for a limited time, The Cronian Incident is available with its sequel – The Jovian Manifesto – for the bundle price of $0.99. So far, the book has gained a 5/5 star rating and some stellar reviews:
“What’s so good about it? Everything!“
“[I]f you liked The Cronian Incident, you’ll enjoy The Jovian Manifesto, so don’t hesitate to check it out and take a look.”
And Professor Loeb of Harvard University described it as follows:
“Exciting plot with a good foundation in science. This is not surprising given the author’s expertise as an excellent science writer for Universe Today. Inspiring ending. Highly recommended!”
The offer ends December 29th! Get em’ while they’re hot!
