Patrick S Tomlinson is the son of an ex-hippie psychologist and an ex-cowboy electrician. He lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with a menagerie of houseplants in varying levels of health, a Ford Mustang, and a Triumph motorcycle bought specifically to embarrass and infuriate Harley riders.
When not writing sci-fi and fantasy novels and short stories, Patrick is busy developing his other passion for performing stand-up comedy.
“Another amazing story with all the twists and turns I’ve come to expect from Patrick S. Tomlinson. With a great mix of science fiction, action and mystery it is wonderfully written and it’s not “world” building but as the author said it’s ‘race building’, so don’t miss out on the turbulent ups and downs that had me undeniably hooked throughout the entire thing.”

“A solid read, and one I definitely recommend.”

“I could not put Trident’s Forge down, and read it in one marathon sitting. That is as much due to the writing style and characters as the non-stop, nail-biting story thread. If you’re an outer space sci-fi geek like I am, you’re going to love this series!”

“If you’ve not tried The Ark, I’d start there first – but come back to this one, it’ll reward your effort.”
– Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews
“Trident’s Forge, by Patrick S Tomlinson is a wild space opera story, full of mystery and plenty of action and makes for an entertaining read.”

“The action does not let up… Well worth a read.”
– The British Fantasy Society
“I do love mash-ups, and Trident’s Forge has a melange of a plot combining alien first-contact, frontier intrigue, colony politics, fast-paced action, quirky and irreverent humor and some (minimal) mystery/thriller elements. I am definitely looking forward to the third book in the series.”
