CPB announces new novel by Mark Laporta, pub. date March 2, 2021

Probability Shadow, the first novel in Mark Laporta’s science fiction trilogy, Against the Glare of Darkness,has been acclaimed both in the mainstream press as well as the SF blogosphere. Booklist called Shadow, “an engrossing far-future reality of galaxy-spanning civilizations,” Publishers Weekly wrote,“the characters are solid and appealing, the time-displaced enemy is a constant looming shadow, and the common mistrust and its deadly consequences are frustratingly believable,and Fanbase Press praised“an entertaining adventure that leaves something a little heavier to dwell on after the last enemy space ship has exploded into the vacuum.”

Now Chickadee Prince Books is proud to announce that we will publish the second novel in this groundbreaking and thought-provoking series on March 2, 2021. Probability Shadow led readers into a new universe, where a critical mineral shortage pit imperious humans against scheming androids, skulking symbiotes, a moralistic caucus of sentient crustaceans, and the reemergence of an ancient evil known as the Quishiks. In Entropy Refraction, that evil is on the rise and threatens all sentient life in the universe. To defeat the Quishiks, Ambassador Ungent Draaf and his unlikely human and symbiote allies must first overcome the evil in themselves. Says Laporta in a recent interview, “However configured, life is tough, and survival is guaranteed to no one.”
