    One thought on “Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0: Origins”

    1. Most good authors perform meticulous research when undertaking a new work of fiction Authors such as Tom Clancy and Connie Willis spend many hours in libraries and museums gathering information about the subjects of their books They also conduct interviews with knowledgeable people That research allows the reader to imagine that the work of fiction might, at a minimum, be possible in the real world It is obvious that the author of this book performed very little research than, perhaps, viewing [...]

    2. I really tried to like this book, but I found it on as a free ebook for my Kindle It is the first story of a series As someone else said, I would give it 2 stars if we could give half stars in.The premise of story is that a group of amateurs hack a simulator that is used by the local military academy for training The group then proceeds to defeat and humiliate the academies best After being exposed, the group is then not sent to prison, but given a starship and sent out on a top secret mission a [...]

    3. I wrote this trilogy and invite everyone to read it for free at Barnes and Noble searchrnesandnoble Firs or at Smashwords smashwords books view

    4. Let s start, I give the overall series 4.5 stars, this book 3.5 4 stars.Randolph LaLonde is an Independent Author and this series is his most successful books yet According to the bio on his website, he s selling enough of these books to stop working and become a full time writer A rare success story, though surely not the only one This book is proof that there are gems to be found in Independently Published books if you are willing to look for them And, he s Canadian not that there s anything w [...]

    5. I want to start by saying I got this for free from Kindle.If I could give half stars, this would really be a 2.5 star rating It is just slightly below a 3 star, but not a 2 star Why Well there are parts of the book that have a good solid story line, that kept me engrossed and looking forward to getting ont he train so I could rad some On the other hand there were parts that were just very ordinarily written that became un realistic The romance between characters at times maybe wonder if the aut [...]

    6. Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0 Origins is Randolph Lalonde s initial collection of three novellas in what is now a long running series This book and series fall into the ever changing space opera genre depicting large scale themes set in deep outer space There are a few minor romance plots as well, but they are brief w out any graphic scenes The novellas remind me of Star Trek and Firefly in that they also center around a strong captain with an interesting cast of supporting crew Origins follows th [...]

    7. I like sci fi and had seen a lot of positive comments on Randolph Lalonde s work on several forums, so coming across this in the course of an idle browse, decided to have a look.I loved it for a start it s a long, character driven story where we see the main character develop from an idle, unfulfilled worker in a fairly undemanding job into a new challenge where he has to suddenly take responsibility for a crew and negotiate them through a series of dangerous events.The ending is sudden and dram [...]

    8. I confess, I d become selective over the past few years, having been disappointed in science fiction of the space opera variety Converse, perhaps, I d read trilogies like Karin Lowachee s set of three Warchild, Burndive and Cagebird, that I d really loved They had characters with backgrounds and complexities that worked for me I ve been a long time fan of all kinds of sci fi, however.Spinward Fringe Origins is the type of sci fi that isn t just for picking up when you have a few moments It s th [...]

    9. I really really don t understand why this gets such a high rating This is quite possible one of the worst books I have ever read The one dimensional characters blunder through three extra long Star Trek episodes, spouting line after line of pointless shallow dialogue I could go on, but I think once I start I will not be able to stop Because people don t understand it I will add this to all my reviews Did not like it the only negative option It was ok Liked it Really like it It was amazingNo need [...]

    10. The one thing that comes to mind when I read this omnibus is that the story is quite similar to the Lost Fleet series by John G Hemry, only exciting right from the start I read a few reviews in which people were complaining that the military ranks used are not correct, or the terms used are not consistent, and they might be right, but if something minor like that is going to annoy you so much then you should not read indie fiction I personally liked most of the Lost Fleet books, but this story [...]

    11. I really enjoyed this book, and will soon be reading the next in the series A space opera, it has elements that remind me of both Star Trek and Firefly, and indeed, even has a few references for fan laughs Like Star Trek though, a suspension of disbelief is needed when it comes to how they get out of all their many scrapes.This story has a number of twists and turns I enjoy not being able to predict the way it s going to go The universe building is interesting as well planets and sections of spa [...]

    12. Easily 5 5 stars This was a truly amazing book from an Indie Science Fiction writer I look forward to the remaining books in the series eventually Lalonde incorporates many scifi staples and classics into his tale but manages to insert enough fresh ideas to make the entire universe his own I think that whether you re new to Science Fiction or an old hand, this is a good read that you won t be disapointed in, not to mention that it s 1,385 pages long and FREE on the Barnes and Noble NOOK.

    13. I really enjoyed this I don t usually like hard core space travel scifi, but this was good I skipped over all of the technical mumbo jumbo that this genre always has, and was pleasantly surprised by the characters and story line I will definitely be reading the sequels

    14. This was a free download for my Kindle and turned out to be an enjoyable action packed adventure tale I will certainly be reading the other titles in the series.

    15. E Pulp Warning All my e reading is e pulp so I review to that standard Reader beware E Pulp Warning Overall 4 stars Recommend I stumbled across a recommendation for this series and I m really glad I did Spinward Fringe is a fantastic example of space opera fiction with an incredibly detailed world, fantastic technology and a great concept that allows us to explore them both While it can suffer the usual pacing problems inherent in the genre it is a quality start to an e pulp series that shows pl [...]

    16. I found this book after reading The Phoenix Conspiracy and desperately wanting to find another book to try and satisfy my new found hunger for space operas It was free from for Kindle and so I felt I couldn t go wrong If I didn t like it then I could simply delete it and move on with nothing gained, nothing lost I started the book a bit disappointed to be honest The battle you are thrown into doesn t seem to flow very well, but I put this down to the fact that you know none of the characters I a [...]

    17. This Sci fi, space opera is very reminiscent of Star Trek and others of that oeuvre It is what it is, and as it is, it is a fun read that is purely entertaining Lalonde deliberately writes within the confines of the genre and doesn t pretend to be anything else Spinward Fringe Broadcast 0 Origins is actually a collection of three short novellas that do a fairly good job of reading as one novel The reader will not feel shortchanged as the good guys as suitably heroic, if a bit inept at times, and [...]

    18. I am no experienced book reviewer and below probably shows that Origins Review The main character Jonas Valent is employed as a port traffic controller in a space station called Freeground, his only vice is his after work participation in simulations with his online friends Soon their identities become known to the Freeground Fleet Command and their lives are changed forever The book consists of three parts, Freeground, Limbo and the last 50% of the book Starfree Port The storytelling is done in [...]

    19. I won t rephrase what the other 1 2 star rewievs has to say I will just state that the author sometimes has a nice easy reading style type of flow in his writing, there are SONY Inconsistencies in the plot and behavior of the protagonists and their enemies Think 60 s Star Trek It s like an childrens book for 8 12 in that regard, so if you want an modicrum of realism in your Sci Fi this isn t for you If you are able to turn of your thought processes and aren t to picky about stuff, then this is a [...]

    20. Could not put it downOne of the best I have read have Read SciFi since high school and this book piqued my interest, hated to come to the end.

    21. A very interesting first novel in the Spinward Fringe series I got it as a free download, and will buy the next book in the series At times it reminded me of Star Trek and the starship Enterprise, but quickly established its own universe and characters The main characters are well fleshed out especially the captain Jonas Valent I think the story pacing is very good, and the backstories also are engaging and beneficial to the world Randolph has created.

    22. First ParagraphsBook 1 Freeground The odds weren t in our favour They rarely were, but this time it was different The stakes were higher As I drifted through the silence of space in my Raze Starfighter, I got a shiver All systems were deactivated, including life support Our wing was hiding behind thousands of meteors we had stirred up and directed at a nearby gas giant.Lalonde, Randolph 2010 12 01 Origins Spinward Fringe Kindle Locations 26 28 Kindle Edition Book 2 Limbo Just as intelligence had [...]

    23. A thoroughly enjoyable story Rather long, but that s a plus in this case A bunch of military and ex military types, living on a super sized space station in the middle of nowhere, meet in a war game simulation Trouble is, they don t belong there.Now, here is one of the two points that kept me from giving it 5 stars Point 1 The one of the participants tips off the military and they military is impressed by their performance Seems this is a simulation used for training and the team has been beatin [...]

    24. This review does not include a plot synopsis read the back of the book or any one of a million other reviews if that s what you re after Whilst reading this book I was thinking of ways to describe it, and I frequently found myself comparing it to watching an episode of Star Trek take your pick of which version Turns out that this wasn t a coincidence the book was engineered to read like that Lalonde, it seems, wanted to try his hand at a different genre, and immersed himself in extensive researc [...]

    25. A freebie scifi ebook setting the scene for a series of books by a new author, to this genre at least Certainly enough there to motivate reading the follow up books even though they have a modest price attached The opening has an Ender esque flavour, with a renegade crew drawn together in a simulator situation before being sent off on a clandestine mission to defend their home Heroism, conspiracy, romance and adventure are all featured and the plot moves along briskly and ends with a satisfying [...]

    26. Here I am again, writing a book review for another science fiction book.lol And again, I was pleasantly surprised about how much I liked the book I got really wrapped up in the journeys of Jonas Valent, Arya Rice, Oz, Ming Buu, Alice the AI and the other characters in the book I was a little disappointed at how it ended but then I realized that, hey, I have the rest of the books in the series Yay lol.The only thing that turned me off was all of the technical talk about the ship s There were some [...]

    27. Great series starter, really wanted to play in this setting as an RPG as well, the characters, storyline and everything just sets the whole universe ripe for adventuring Randy is an amazing storyteller and the series starter is free I ve read the released at this point up to Broadcast 6 four times, and am re reading again now for the fifth Just the entire setting and character development and, well everything just makes you want and , and Randy gives us just that

    28. A phenomenal series by an independent author and self published on non traditional vehicles such as Smashwords and along with print on demand services One of the most gripping sci fi series I have read, somewhat similar in style to the Simon R Green Deathstalker series but largely enjoyable in my view.
