About the Author

EDWARD M. LERNER worked in high tech for thirty years, as everything from engineer to senior vice president, for much of that time writing science fiction as a hobby. Since 2004 he has written full-time, and his books run the gamut from technothrillers, like Energized, to traditional SF, like the InterstellarNet series, to, with Larry Niven, the grand space epic Fleet of Worlds series of Ringworld companion novels. Ed’s short fiction has appeared in anthologies, collections, and many of the usual SF magazines. He also writes the occasional nonfiction technology article. Lerner lives in Virginia with his wife, Ruth. His website is

HASH(0xa644b66c) out of 5 stars Good, but InterstellarNet doesn't figure very prominently in this book Nov. 14 2013
By Gadabout - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good story, definitely worth reading if you enjoyed the first book. However I was disappointed that the author went to all that trouble to create a credible InterstellarNet universe, and then made it largely obsolete in his next book by introducing interstellar travel powered by future-physics handwaving.
HASH(0xa644b8b8) out of 5 stars Good hard science fiction storytelling. June 12 2015
By Michael Poole - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second book of the InterstellarNet series. Unlike the first one, New Order is a single story. Like the first, though, it's good hard science fiction storytelling. Lerner does good things with aliens and he has a great grasp of how to weave his science throughout a story without dragging it down.
New Order is more intense and darker than the first book, ending in all out war on the edge of the solar system. The book's conclusion genuinely surprised me which is almost always a good thing. And as an aside, I loved the tiny nod to Sherlock Holmes. (Dammit, Ed. You made me get all teary.)
A terrific read. Looking forward to the third one.
HASH(0xa644b87c) out of 5 stars Builds wonderfully the original set of stories. Oct. 29 2015
By Dave Carver - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While the underlying foundation of the original set of stories was economics this story focuses on strategy and warfare and the Snake civilization. The Snake civilization sets up as a key competitor to humans in the interstellar space. Each race has similar attributes but the humans share other points view with the Centauris.

The richness of the series continues to unfold and promises to set the stage for great stories to come. I can't wait to keep reading.
HASH(0xa644bb70) out of 5 stars Book 2 keeps up the momentum Oct. 14 2015
By Valerie D. Allen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
More civilizations from the local group of stars join the e-commerce game; they are an outside influence to the aliens and humans in the first book. During the first physical contact with a known alien race humans realize something may not be quite right here . . . I don’t want to give way too much, but it involves new definitions of “Persons” and all the associated legal wrangling.
HASH(0xa644f084) out of 5 stars An intersting idea for a set of stories. Dec 8 2014
By C. L. Wilson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read some, but not all, of these stories when they came out in SSF magazines. The idea the are based on is a major part of their interest. If the idea of interstellar commerce without faster than light communications is interesting to you the book will be, If not the plot and characters won;t carry it forward.
