Product Description

Product Description

Matt Dragoneaux is an interstellar hired gun who follows the Code of the Vigilante: track ‘em, strike ‘em, and be elsewhere when the Anarchate battleglobe shows up. And with the aid of the self-aware starship Mata Hari, he’s been successful in bringing a small bit of justice to the alien star culture of the Anarchate. But then a crossbreed woman hires him to right a wrong being done to her planet by an alien commercial conglomerate that rules whole star clusters. Matt, aided by cyborg improvements that make him a deadly foe, sets out to do his job the best he can. Soon, he is on track to becoming the deadliest Vigilante in human history. But humanity’s survival among the crowded stars might be the price for success in his job. This is Book 1 in the best-selling, five and four-star rated Vigilante series of combat SciFi novels! Book 2 is Nebula Vigilante, Book 3 is Galactic Vigilante and Book 4 is Anarchate Vigilante. Book 5, Alien Vigilante, will be released this fall.

About the Author

T. Jackson King (Tom) is a professional archaeologist and journalist. He writes hard science fiction, anthropological scifi, dark fantasy/horror and contemporary fantasy/magic realism--but that didn't begin until he was 38. Before then, college years spent in Paris and in Tokyo led Tom into antiwar activism, hanging out with some Japanese hippies and learning how often governments lie to their citizens. The latter lesson led him and a college buddy to publish the Shinjuku Sutra English language underground tabloid in Japan in 1967. That was followed by helping shut down the UT Knoxville campus in 1968 and a bus trip to Washington D.C. for the Second March on Washington where thousands demanded an end to the Vietnam War. Temporary sanity returned when Tom worked in a radiocarbon lab at UC Riverside and earned an MA degree in archaeology from UCLA. His interests in ancient history, ancient cultures and journalism got him several government agency jobs that paid the bills, led him to roam the raw landscape of the Western United States, and helped him raise three kids. A funny thing happened on the way to normality. By the time he was 39 and doing federal arky work in Colorado, Tom's first novel STAR TRADERS was a stage play in his head that wouldn't go away. So he wrote it down. It got rejected. His next novel was published as RETREAD SHOP (Warner Books, 1988). It was off to the writing races and Tom's many voyages of imaginative discovery have led to more published novels, a book of poetry, and a conviction that when humans reach the stars, we will find them crowded with space-going aliens. We will be the New Kids On The Block. This theme appears in much of Tom's short fiction and novel writing. Tom lives in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA.

T. Jackson King (Tom) is a professional archaeologist and journalist. He writes hard science fiction, anthropological sci-fi, dark fantasy/horror and contemporary fantasy/magic realism--but that didn't happen until he was 38.

Before then, college years spent in Paris and in Tokyo led Tom into antiwar activism, hanging out with some Japanese hippies and learning how often governments lie to their citizens. The latter lesson led him and a college buddy to publish the Shinjuku Sutra English language underground tabloid in Japan in 1967. That was followed by helping shut down the University of Tennessee at Knoxville campus in 1968 and a bus trip to Washington D.C. for the Second March on Washington where thousands demanded an end to the Vietnam War.

Temporary sanity returned when Tom worked in a radiocarbon lab at UC Riverside and earned an MA degree in Archaeology from UCLA. His interests in ancient history, ancient cultures and journalism got him several government agency jobs that paid the bills, led him to roam the raw landscape of the Western United States, and helped him and his wife Leslee raise three kids.

A funny thing happened on the way to normality. By the time he was 38 and doing federal arky work in Colorado, Tom's first novel STAR TRADERS was a stage play in his head that wouldn't go away. So he wrote it down. It got rejected. His next novel was published as RETREAD SHOP (Warner Books, 1988). It was off to the writing races and Tom's many voyages of imaginative discovery have led to 13 published novels, a book of poetry, and a conviction that when Humans reach the stars, we will find them crowded with space-going Aliens. We will be the New Kids On The Block! This theme appears in much of Tom's short fiction and novel writing.

Tom lives in Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA and hangs with a group of smart and tolerant Westerners. Divorce has taught him to smile a lot and to work at being a Nice Guy. Still, he is pretty weird. Has been since fourth grade when he began reading SciFi. Since then, he and Authority have rarely been in agreement.

Readers are welcome to visit his T. Jackson King Facebook page. If you Friend him you will get the latest news on his writing efforts! Also, Tom's new Twitter handle is @TJacksonKing. Reviews of his novels, interviews and news of other writings can be found at his author page on http://www.tjacksonking.com/.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood in Space 16 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Star Vigilante is one of the best hard sci-fi novels I've read in years.

T. Jackson King has put together an outstanding action-packed thriller complete with cyborgs, deadly aliens,spaceships and high-tech weaponry galore. What a thrilling read and page turner. The author keeps alive the traditions set by Robert C. Heinlein and Ray Bradbury.

This novel has such scope, complexity and sense of humanity that it leaves the reader awed and inspired. It's a Robin Hood tale in space.

The author himself has a rich background. He's a longtime sci-fi writer, professional archaelogist (a modern Indiana Jones) and journalist, a former traditionally published author, and a top class science fiction writer.

At only $2.99, the Kindle version of this novel is a steal and well worth a much higher price.

My only quibbles with the book, and they are minor, is that the action is so relentless it hardly gives the reader time to breathe and a few scenes go on for an unnecessarily long time. A bit tighter editing is called for in places.

But if you're a sci-fi fan, you must read this book. I'm not a sci-fi writer but the book is an excellent example of how to write a great book. It has many of the elements of thrillers, which is my genre, and captivates the reader from beginning to end.

This is a solid, fun read and well worth your time. An unreserved 5-stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more 8 April 2014
By Danny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very much enjoyed - classic hero romp. Tech content was high - I really enjoyed the explanations for all sorts of tech - I have no idea if any of it is based on fact but it comes across as highly believable - well done TJK. I have just purchased the next in the series. Danny
