Science fiction writers Patrick and Blake Seaman, the father and son authors of the Accipiter War Pentalogy, will speak at the Allen Public Library at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 20. The Accipiter War Pentalogy tells the story of a current-day Texas city and adjacent military base, that are abducted—scooped up whole—and deposited inside a 4,000-mile-long McKendree Cylinder by parties unknown. The series is a character-driven military science fiction/space opera story that follows our heroes as they explore and discover what and why this has happened as they encounter and engage threats both inside the McKendree Cylinder – and beyond. The books feature cover art by Hugo Award-winning artist and author Ron Miller.

In 1995, Patrick Seaman helped Mark Cuban launch what later became AudioNet/broadcast.com, which was then acquired by Yahoo for $5.4B. He was the publisher of the first audiobook on the Internet and serialized it as the first known podcast. He also co-wrote the first book on Internet broadcasting. After broadcast.com, Patrick continued to push content boundaries with Timberwolf Press, which published the first known MP3CD/eBooks and popularized digital downloads of eBooks and episodic audiobooks.
