Mission Omega – Part 1

A lone squad of elite soldiers are sent to find and destroy a mysterious weapon being developed by an inscrutable foe. The whole war may ride on their success or failure, and there is no sacrifice their superiors are unwilling to make to ensure victory.

‘Mission Omega’ is a new story that takes place in the universe of the Four Quadrants, set some fifty years before the events of ‘Legacy’ and shedding light on one fateful mission in the bloody and destructive Meccite Wars.

Creative Democracy: Put One Word In Front Of The Other

Quiet Radicals

“When people ask I say ‘I just wrote a book about spaceships…”

Thomas Heasman-Hunt might well minimise the achievement of his debut novel “Legacy”. A mere fraction of the 50,000 words he wrote each month over a prolific two years, working by the mantra: “I just put one word in front of the other and see what happens”, Legacy is just a fragment in a universe of imagination

DJ: Hey Thomas! Thanks for agreeing to do this interview!

For readers who aren’t familiar with you, could you tell us a little about yourself?

Thomas Heasman-Hunt: No problem. I’m a 31-year-old part-time author (in other words, like most writers, I have a day job…) living in Cambridgeshire in the UK. I’ve been writing, telling stories, playing make-believe and so forth for as long as I can remember, but I started doing it in earnest and trying to make a career out of it perhaps seven or eight years ago. I first tried writing a novel, which was a long slog to get finished and, once it was done, failed to win over any agents or publishers. I’m quite grateful for that now because it was very much a ‘first novel’…
