Justin Cord is now the last free man in the human race - owned by no one and owning no one.

New Unincorporated Universe Novella
We're proud to announce "Teach Your Children Well", a novella that takes place within the Unincorporated Universe. It's part of a military anthology with authors Kevin J. Anderson, Michael Stackpole, Doug Dandridge and Sarah A. Hoyt. Available at the following links:
Eytan and I came up with this Mayan Prophecy Doomsday concept a while back and realized, given the long lag times at the major SF pubs, we'd never get it out on time - before the end of the world, that is. Anyways, here's the brief - no spoilers, don't worry - descriptor:
Day By Day is a Mayan prophecy tale that takes place on the last day of Earth's existence. The Prometheus award-winning authors have not only come up with a doomsday like no other, they've also managed to place the fate of humanity on the hopes and perseverance of a most unlikely duo -- quite possibly the strangest in science fiction history. Enjoy Day By Day, a Kollin Brothers adventure that begins at the end.
Enjoy...with what little time you have left.
Read Publishers Weekly recent review of The Unincorpoated Future
From Publishers Weekly 6/10/12:
Smooth, thoughtful, and compulsively readable, this expansive space opera completes the quartet that began with The Unincorporated Man (2009). The solar system’s Outer Alliance is beginning to win its fight against the inner planets’ United Human Federation, but unscrupulous UHF President Hektor Sambianco remains determined to exterminate the opponents of personal incorporation, which ensures that “every human was under corporate control and properly exploited.” As millions of people die on both sides, Alliance President Sandra O’Toole must consider how far a war can go before it destroys the combatants’ humanity. Meanwhile, massive battle fleets maneuver through the solar system, and clandestine artificial intelligences fight their own civil war, determining whether to aid or destroy the human race. Plots and counterplots abound. The Kollin brothers bounce deftly among characters and locations, alternating grandiose action and pages of political and moral debate. The result is a surprisingly successful melodrama of ideas that ties up the plot threads neatly and satisfyingly. (Aug.)
An interview with the sci-fi/fantasy/comics podcast Machine Readable
A few weeks back Eytan and I participated in Dever, Colorado's Milehicon. While there, we were interviewed by podcasters Machine Readable. Enjoy the show: Kollin Brothers Interview
Just got the news this morning (paraphrased from a longer email):
Two sf novels published this year by TOR Books have been nominated for next year's Prometheus Award for Best Novel. Please pass on our congratulations to the authors: Vernor Vinge, forThe Children of the Sky; and Dani and Eytan Kollin, for The Unincorporated Woman. The judges are especially intrigued by these new 2011 nominees, since The Children of the Sky is a sequel to A Deepness in the Sky, our 2000 Prometheus winner for best novel; while The Unincorporated Woman is a continuation of the Kollin brothers' 2010 Prometheus winner for best novel, The Unincorporated Man.
We're absolutely blown away to be nominated in a category next to an author of Vernor Vinge's stature.
