First of all, some Far From Home news. I will be writing Black Nova Parts 3, 4, 5 & 6 over the coming weeks, so look out for those. There will also be a collected edition, or omnibus with all 6 for one discounted price (see below).

Black Nova Omnibus

In the meantime, I’ve been steadily working with Bernard Schaffer on his Confederation Reborn series. So far there are 3 available that we’ve written together. Details on those here: There is also a 3-parter written by Bernard on his own, subtitled “Return Fire” and a collaboration between Bernard and my good friend Simon John Cox with the story “Fool’s Gambit”.

Every title in the Confederation Reborn series can be found here:

The stories Bernard and I have been working on follow the voyages of Captain Kirn and his legendary starship, the Endeavor. As I said we have 3 out already, with another 3 on the way. We’re also working up a 9 or 10 part mini-series. The story we’ve worked up for it is truly epic in my opinion. If you enjoyed the long-form storytelling, and serialization of Far From Home, this will be right up your alley. If you’re wondering where we are with it, I’m working on sections of episode 3 as we speak.

If you haven’t yet read A Brightly Flickering Flame, The Fire Eternal and Dusts of Creation, please do so. We’d love to know what you make of them.

We think they’ll blow you away.


Bernard Schaffer has assembled a wildly talented group of storytellers to create a new saga in science fiction. Simultaneously paying homage to the most beloved franchise in history, while twisting it to their own unique vision, the Confederation Reborn series is instantly familiar, and like nothing you’ve read before.

Join Tony Healey (Far From Home) and Bernard Schaffer (Grendel Unit, Superbia, and Guns of Seneca 6) as they team up for CONFEDERATION REBORN!
