I should have Orbital Decay somewhere but I can’t find it now. That was my first contact with Aleen Steele some time last century but it wasn’t until I read Coyote that he had me hooked. He has a real flair for portraying a pioneer spirit in his books that I like.
The Coyote books have such a nice new nation feeling, somewhat like I imagine America the years after the revolution but with aliens.
1-3 is a trilogy, 4 & 5 is standalone books in the same universe, 6-7 is a two book sequel to the first three
Links to my posts, you can see some development there I hope.
