Galactic Empires is a collection of six short stories, each roughly 75 pages in length, that contribute towards the central theme of the title and is published exclusively by the Science Fiction Book Club in the US. Here’s the synopsis:
When the Stone arrives in a elongated orbit around Earth the first thought is of alien visitors. However, when NATO is the group to arrive and enter the asteroid they discover something even stranger – it was built by Humanity over 1000 years ago. After exploration it is revealed that there are seven chambers within the Stone, some containing cities, some machinery, but the seventh chamber – the Corridor – is the strangest of all as it is much larger than it should be – the end is yet to be found.

I first came across Mike’s stuff last year when Gary Gibson posted the cover art to Seeds of Earth on his blog. After much drooling I headed over to Mike’s blog to see if I could find out some more about the book, the first in a trilogy, and had a read of the synopsis. Suffice to say it hooked me and put Seeds of Earth high on the list of must-read books in 2009. Managing to get my hands on an early review copy meant I was treated to an excellent story and great start to a trilogy.
A huge thanks goes to Mike for taking the time to answer my questions, I’m sure you’ll find his answers as interesting and entertaining as I did!
