What They're Saying

As for The Seventh Sun, these chapters seriously piqued my interest. The characters are real, the science is convincing and disturbing, and the pacing is excellent. I really liked the ominous, looming sense of disaster.  Dan Clifford, the expert in scientific prediction, could be a great series character. I think you have a winner.  Please feel free to use my comments when your agent submits the book.

The Fifth Edition of Contracting is Out

The latest edition of Contracting will hit the bookshelves on February 12, 2017

There were many times when I wondered if this day would ever arrive, but the final hardcover copies of The Seventh Sun have arrived in bookstores. This represents a culmination of several years of drafts, queries, edits, publicity, and general mayhem.

The official website of Kent Lester has been redesigned to take full advantage of social networking and social media.
