Space pirate, anarchist, pole dancer, tobacco smuggler, rock’n’roll rebel: Meteor Mags blazes through the solar system in a series of adventures with her foul-mouthed nephew, Tarzi, and her adorably indestructible cat, Patches. Join Meteor Mags, her best friend Celina, and her band The Psycho 78s on the asteroid mining frontier of the near future, where mayhem abounds and the heroes aren’t always good!
By 2027, gravity control made asteroid mining a major industry. Meteor Mags and her crew rock The Belt, raging against the forces of law and order, hijacking cargo ships, and selling illegal music. Until they come face-to-face with an alien invasion.
Meteor Mags confronts reptiles from space, a telepathic kraken in a genetics lab, and a horrifying robotic version of herself. She rescues a pirate radio DJ and a group of young women who join her at Club Assteroid on the asteroid Vesta 4. Between bar fights and smuggling runs, the spirit of her great-grandmother Mad Dog Mags, an eighteenth-century pirate, gives her guidance and protection.
Meteor Mags is vehemently pro-cat, ardently anti-fascist, and always up for rum or weapons testing. Too loving to be a heartless criminal and too degenerate to be a radical feminist, Mags uses her wits, bravery, and vintage arsenal to carve her own violent brand of justice on the solar system. She comes from a line of women known for piracy, revolution, and mysteriously long lives. And no one knows for sure why she has a tail!
The ten short stories collected in Red Metal at Dawn blend historical fiction with the wild energy of Jack Kirby-style comic books and pulp science fiction. Read it in Paperback or Kindle and see why Meteor Mags materials have been banned in The Asteroid Belt since 2029! Also Available on iTunes!
