Following on from his successful Kickstarter last year novelising Star Trek's Four Years War, author Stephen Fender has now launched a crowdfunding campaign to produce a "technical manual" to accompany his original saga.
On the campaign's Kickstarter page, he explains:
"In brief, The Four Years War was a protracted conflict between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, which took place roughly ten years prior to the events depicted in Star Trek: The Original Series.
Taking all available data I could find, I wrote four complete novels, each one depicting a year of the war, with each composed of interwoven short stories of those serving on the front lines of the conflict.
Throughout the course my writing, I compiled a massive amount of statistics, diagrams, illustrations, and much more. Some were created by me, while others were supplied to me. With the permission of those artists, and at the request of fans of the Four Years War, I decided to create a technical manual that would enhance the material I'd already committed to the novels."The campaign, which is running until July 27, hit its funding goal within 48 hours of launching, so the book is going to happen.
