Author, Michael Gilmour has released his debut science fiction novel, Battleframe. The story follows the exploits of a battleframe pilot, call-sign Whizzbang, as he searches for his friends in the midst of an alien invasion. This fast paced scifi adventure is full of intrigue, action and genuine good fun. Book one in The Mindwars series opens with our galaxy in turmoil and humanity on the brink of extinction.

This soon to be science fiction classic is the result of a two-year labour of love by Michael. A passionate science fiction advocate, this newly published author seeks to bring The Mindwars series to a new generation of readers.

“Battleframe started out as a series of episodes on a website that I was developing. The reaction from readers made me realized that this was not just a gimmick but a genuinely entertaining scifi story.” - Michael Gilmour

Battleframe features cover-art from renown French science fiction artist, Sebestien Hue.

Michael said, “Sebestien perfectly captured the dramatic final scene in the book for the front cover illustration.”

Rather than going through a traditional publisher Michael elected to self-publish Battleframe.

As an unknown author I’m very well aware that the odds of snagging a traditional publisher is next to zero. I’m a bit of a pragmatist and decided to go the independent route and if all goes well become known. It’s much easier for a publisher to bet on you once you’ve sold a lot of copies of your book.

Reaching nearly 400 pages, Battleframe promises a bold and engaging story that is impossible to put down. Battleframe can be purchased on Amazon in both e-reader and paperback editions for $2.99 for a digital copy and $14.95 for paperback
