I recently posted an interview with T James (http://thecultofme.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/elite-dangerous-author-interview-t-james.html), one of the upcoming Elite: Dangerous authors (visit http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1461411552/elite-dangerous/ for more information on the game kickstarter). He has posted the first part of a short story entitled "With enemies like these, who needs friends?" over on his blog.
The story provides a flavour of his intended style for the novel. Read the first part by clicking on the link below:
I'm looking forward to the next part.
