Controversial new thriller from acclaimed Dr. Adam Weigold explores likelihood of Photonic Warfare in a future global conflict.

Cancellation of Project

To all our backers thankyou so much for your support. 

Unfortunately it has become obvious that we will not reach our funding goal so we have cancelled the Dragon Empire project to allow us to focus on our main crowdfund project (called the SASM Institute). This means your order will not be processed and your amazon account will not be charged. Dragon Empire was originally intended as a trial project to provide some seed revenues, to learn about crowdfunding and to create some media presence for Lightning Gun. Although we have cancelled the trial we have certainly learnt a lot about crowdfunding and made a lot of very useful contacts in the process. Hopefully this bears out in a successful campaign for the SASM Institute.

Stay tuned if you want to participate in the SASM Institute which will be launched in the next month. Many of the Lightning Gun rewards available in the Dragon Empire project will also be available in the SASM Institute campaign.

 I also suggest you read my latest article on Big Scary Ideas titled "Can Futurists shape the Future?" if you want to learn more about SASM.
