Laws and Prophecies – Update!

I can finally state the book is done! Book three of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles is finally done! Honest!

Laws and Prophecies will be out in June – no exact date is set yet, that depends on a few factors, but I will announce it as soon as I have it!

Anyway, what do you think?

Laws and Prophecies cover

Thane Alcandhor is assailed from all sides: treason within his clan, conspiracies from kin, and turmoil due to the return of the aliens known as the Enaisi. When hit by a final onslaught—rebellion by provincial lords threatening to set up their own despotic princedoms, Alcandhor is forced to choose between upholding their laws and fulfilling ancient, haunting prophecies.

As this is book three of the series, I highly recommend backing up and starting with the first two books of the series, Sword’s Edge and Children of the Enaisi. It wouldn’t hurt to read Unlikely Prophet as well, to understand some of the history of this world and of their laws, which play such an important part of their lives and culture.

Laws and Prophecies…is indeed concerned with the details of laws and prophecies, which fundamentally affect every citizen. I would call it a novel of manners, where social and legal interpretations are essential… [t]here is indeed more to science fiction than pyrotechnics.

A new review of Deuces Wild: Stacking the Deck! Yes, I get excited easily!

Just found a new review of the second book in the Deuces Wild series: Stacking the Deck.

Everyone looks on Amazon or Goodreads, but I found this one on GooglePlay:

I’d love to see a Deuces Wild Trilogy in theaters. Of course once the third book is out that is. This was a real page turner like the first book. I read both together in exactly one week. I can’t wait for an Illustrated Guide to L S. Kings universe.

Thank you so much for reading Stacking the Deck, Eric, and for posting a review. I doubt any films will be made of my books though. LOL

If you haven’t read it yet, it has lots of explosive action, or as Mike Resnick said:

“In DEUCES WILD, L. S. King gives us a fast-moving adventure, told with wit and grace, and more than a dose of humor.”



“…fans of classic pulp fantasy will love” Children of the Enaisi – @jondelarroz

Children of the Enaisi has a beautiful high concept with a mysterious past of lost technology and ancient secrets. A fresh new take on Rangers that fans of classic pulp fantasy will love.”
Jon Del Arroz, award-winning SF author

Although it’s book two of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles, Children of the Enaisi can be read as a stand-alone. Not only is there treason and murder, but aliens, portals from other worlds, dire life-changing secrets, and romance.
What more could you want?


Deuces Wild on Friday the 13th

Today has always been my special day, so maybe I’ll get someone to notice and want to buy my books. Specifically, my Deuces Wild series, because the titles have to do with cards/gambling and it’s Friday the 13th. Does that make sense to anyone but me? Probably not, but do I care? My mind does its own thing.

So, about Deuces Wild – y’know, I’ve actually got endorsements from Real Authors™. People like Keanan Brand, Lou Antonelli, and Mike Resnick.

So if you like space opera, why not give my books a go? They’re available in paperback and e-book. And they’re a fun read. If you don’t believe me, check out the endorsements.


Two Day Until Deuces Wild – Book Two! Check Out the Endorsements!

Yes, yes! Two days and counting!

The e-book will be out in two days – you can pre-order now through Amazon or Smashwords.

The print book is only days behind it – and I’m very proud that several authors have endorsed the book.

You can read the endorsements here (and pre-order the e-book, if you want):

Oh okay – I’m really proud, so let me include the endorsements below:

“It’s fast-paced, fun, and well-written. These are characters you can care about with the problems and complications all humans face in our everyday struggles. Society may change in the future but human nature doesn’t.
This is a space setting that feels lived in. It’s a plausible future setting, a frontier-like environment where people try to make a living, solve problems, and just get by – a very humanistic literature.
The narrative flows and takes you quickly along. The characters are well-rounded, believable and credible. The dialogue is snappy and authentic.
Make sure you don’t have anything on your schedule the day you start reading it – you probably won’t put it down until you finish.
Lou Antonelli


Deuces Wild: Stacking the Deck is a fun follow-up to Deuces Wild: Beginner’s Luck. We learn more about the reticent Tristan, some of it embarrassing to him but amusing to readers, as we follow him and Slap and Company as they once more encounter the Confeds and sundry enemies, and appeal to allies to bring about an unexpected, satisfying twist in the tale. Recommended reading to all lovers of space opera, science fiction, and unlikely buddies saving the universe.”
