SACRIFICE PLAY is the third novel based on THE ARBITER CHRONICLES, a science fiction audio drama which has won the Mark Time Silver Award and the Parsec Award. SACRIFICE PLAY is scheduled for release in trade paperback and eBook this Summer from Firebringer Press. Comic book artist Caio Cacau has painted the cover.

Additionally, the cast of THE ARBITER CHRONICLES will voice a full-cast audiobook version of the novel.

The goal of the funding campaign is to pay the artists, voice actors and production staff for their hard work in creating this multimedia adventure.

On behalf of Firebringer Press and Promethues Radio Theatre, thank you for your ongoing support of our work, and we look forward to making SACRIFICE PLAY a success with your help!

Risks and challenges

The novel is complete and in the final stages of editing. The cover is ready for press. We still have to produce the book, but that's not a new challenge for us. This will be our eighth published book.

The bigger challenge will be assembling the full-cast audiobook. We've never done exactly that kind of project before; but, with an easy hundred hours of full cast audio dramas and single voice audio books to our credit, we think we're up to the task.
