Available for pre-order: “The Caphenon” by Fletcher DeLancey


We are pleased to announce that Fletcher DeLancey’s science fiction novel The Caphenon is now available for pre-order. The Caphenon is the first book in the Chronicles of Alsea and a must read for everyone looking for fiction that features smart and in charge women.

Fletcher’s female characters are comfortable with power, whether it’s in a high-stakes political game or on the bridge of a spaceship. Featuring rich science fiction fantasy settings in the tradition of Tanya Huff and Elizabeth Bear, she has created a world where women and men are not limited by arbitrary gender roles.

Tal leads the first responding team and ends up rescuing aliens who have a frightening story to tell. They protected Alsea from a terrible fate—but the reprieve is only temporary.

Captain Ekayta Serrado of the Fleet ship Caphenon serves the Protectorate, a confederation of worlds with a common political philosophy. She has just sacrificed her ship to save Alsea, yet political maneuvering may mean she did it all for nothing.

Alsea is now a prize to be bought and sold by galactic forces far more powerful than a tiny backwater planet. But Lancer Tal is not one to accept a fate imposed by aliens, and she’ll do whatever it takes to save her world.

The Caphenon is available for pre-order from Amazon, Apple, and Kobo.
