Today, the good folks over at Civilian Reader have published an article that I recently wrote for them about the relationship between ARTEFACT and LEGION.

Here’s an excerpt:

“The Lazarus War is a series focusing on a far-future space war. The Alliance – the nominal “good guys” of the series – are locked in an apparently endless conflict with the Krell – a bio-mechanical alien race. But in the universe of The Lazarus War, soldiers never really die: they remotely-operate clone bodies (called “simulants”). That means that if a veteran soldier dies, he retains his experience and knowledge, and can simply “reset” to a new body. Pretty handy, given the situations many of these soldiers find themselves in…”
