Dave Bara

MisCon 28 Attending Professional

<p>Dave Bara was born at the dawn of the space age and grew up watching the Gemini and Apollo space programs on television, dreaming of becoming an astronaut one day. This soon led him to an interest in science fiction on TV, in film, and in books. Dave's writing is influenced by the many classic SF novels he has read over the years from SF authors like Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, and Frank Herbert, among many others.</p>
Book I (Impulse) and Book II (Starbound) in The Lightship Chronicles series are currently available in multiple formats from DAW Books. Book III in the series, Defiant, debuts in 2017.
