We’ve been working very closely the last two months with Michael Tierney on a very special project: a 35th Anniversary Edition of his Wild Stars epic!
The scope of this project is unlike anything Cirsova Publishing has ever done before.
- Wild Stars IV: Wild Star Rising – We will be releasing an all-new Wild Stars novel that is both prequel and sequel to the earlier Wild Stars saga, telling the story of the final space exodus from Earth 75,000 years ago and the Ancient Warrior’s gambit to finally free Phaedra from her prison at the heart of a supermassive black hole. This volume will also contain the first ever extensive bio-glossary of the Wild Stars universe: a must have for old fans and new!
- Wild Stars III: Time Warmageddon – We will be reprinting the formerly Kickstarter-exclusive short novel, Time Warmageddon, with corrected text and a new epilogue. Plus this will collect two previous published stories, Shark Fighter and The Grass Maiden [originally Bears of 1812], and an all-new never-before published Wild Stars short story, The Grimgrip.
- Wild Stars II: Force Majeure – We will be reprinting a new edition of Force Majeure, the hybrid comic/novel that expanded the story of Prairie Bay and continues the time-travel adventures of Erlik, Daestar, Akara, and Mack.
- Wild Stars I: Book of Circles – We will be reprinting a new edition of Book of Circles, the original Wild Stars graphic novel collecting Erlik (1984), First Marker (1988) and the 2001-2002 run of Wild Stars.
- Wild Stars Omnibus – We will be collecting all 4 volumes of Wild Stars in a single massive hardcover volume!
The individual volumes will feature new virgin covers by art legend Mark Wheatley, and the omnibus will feature a wrap-around dust-jacket by Cirsova’s own fabulous cover artist, Anton Oxenuk.
We’ll have more info on the goodies we’ll be offering soon, but we will be using IndieGoGo to take domestic pre-order beginning June 28th for a release in October.
Important notice to our non-US fans and supporters
Cirsova Publishing has MANY loyal fans and devoted readers all over the world. Some who have supported us since the very beginning. We love you all and would not be where we are without you!
That is why, even though the IndieGoGo will be domestic only, we will do everything we can to make sure you are taken care of!
The truth is when we are not doing direct fulfillment, shipping costs swing very wildly based on country and package weight. Trying to predictively configure accurate shipping costs for every country we might conceivably ship to is difficult and time-consuming. Sometimes we’ve found we’ve undercharged and lost money; other times we’ve found we’ve overcharged [when we have, we’ve tried to refund the difference].
So, we humbly ask you to bear with us on this!
If you live outside of the US and want items from the Wild Stars IndieGoGo, please contact us so that we can offer you an accurate quote!
Overseas orders will be handled separately after the crowdfund has been completed.
Unlike the editions offered through last year’s Wild Stars III Kickstarter, these editions will remain in print and be commercially available through normal channels.
Certain exclusive goodies that we have lined up will be held back in limited quantities and made available to our overseas supporters once we have had a chance to figure out our shipping costs and weights.
Please stay tuned for more details and announcements!
