Thomas Deprima is an American indie author, best known for his ‘Galaxy Unknown’ crime-drama series. He’s one of the most popular sci-fi author on the globe, despite having taken the indie route.

In an interview, Deprima describes himself as a voracious reader, a habit he carried with him since childhood. He recalls picking up old paperbacks and thrift stores and yard sales for a nickel, and depleting an armload of them in just a week.

He always felt like writing was his calling. But it was until 1997 that he decided to give it a professional shot. His first book was uploaded at a free fiction site, a site that allowed readers to critique other people’s stories as some form of payment for reading them.

Although the comments he received on site weren’t that pleasing to read, he’s quick to point out that he always valued them. What motivated him even more were the comments suggesting he was a good storyteller, but most of them didn’t stop until they let him know his grammar skills needed some serious polishing. It was the honest critiques he received on the site that helped shape the writer he presently is.

Deprima always had mad dreams of becoming a published author someday, but at some point felt like life could have been a lot better for him if he had taken a day job. That’s when he learnt about a POD company called Lulu, where he could publish his books without paying the upfront fee vanity press required.

He never promoted the books, but succeeded in selling a good number of them.

In 2008, he discovered the Amazon Kindle program and lots of other websites that he could sell his books at only a small fee. The only problem he had was attracting readers to the sites.

Being an IT guy, he understood the important of getting a book published on Amazon. That knowledge would eventually influence his decision to become an indie author.

A Galaxy Unknown

‘A Galaxy Unknown’ is the eponymous title of the first book in the series.

The book follows the story of a young ensign, who happens to have recently completely her studies at the Northern Hemisphere Space Academy. She’s one day awakened while on duty in the middle of the night by flashing lights, alarms and shouts to abandon the ship.

She hastily struggles to put on some clothes and find a life pod, only to find out that all of them departed a while ago.

That marks the beginning of epic story skirting around Jenetta Carver–the main heroine, taking names and kicking some butts as she travels from galaxy to galaxy.

She’s small, but feisty and very intellectual. She’s skilled in all kinds of combats that she makes General Sun-Tzu appear amateurish. If the story, the writing style or any other thing won’t move you, rest assured the protagonist will.

Valour at Vauzlee

Valour at Vauzlee is the second instalment in the series.

A Raider Officer is captured. Eager to get his freedom, he tips off Space Command Intelligence of an ongoing plan by a Raider armada to attack a convoy.

An effective intelligence system and spotter network usually allow pirates to elude SC warships, but for the first time ever, a task force operating Space Command warships has an opportunity to face a fleet of warships belonging to the pirates in mortal combat.

A Space Command Admiral situated at Higgins SCB is forced to do all that’s within their power to surreptitiously bring together a force of ten spaceships that can be diverted behind the back of the Raider Ambushers during the face off. One of the ten ships to be assembled happens to be Prometheus.

Jenetta, the newest lieutenant Commander in Space Command, while on her way back to earth to receive her medal of valour for outstanding performance finds herself cornered in a tense, life or death situation.

Prometheus makes at the rendezvous point, a month later from the Higgins, to await other ships that are reportedly on the way coming and in response for the convoy’s call for help.

Besides Prometheus, only two other rescue ships have arrived at the rendezvous point where the convoy is being attacked.

The captain of Prometheus, Gavin, decides that they’ll no longer be waiting for the rest of the ships. Meaning, the three Space Command warships have to face off the Raider Warship on their own.

The Clones of Mawcett

The Clones of Mawcett is the third instalment in the series.

While entering an underground complex on planet Mawcett, a team of Nordakian and Terran archaeologists are shocked to find the elaborate complex the same as it were, very pristine and untouched.

Mustering the courage to go further, they make their way into an enormous circular chamber, lined up with a broad range of outlandish electronic equipment.

The team starts examining the odd symbols etched on the floor, close to the centre of the room. A strange light sparkles out of the blue paralyzing all of them. They are left to watch in frozen terror as a circular wall rises around them. An odourless green gas then starts filling the enclosed area, forcing a group of dig site labourers eyeballing the scene from the periphery to run towards the entrance screaming for help.

The activity triggers an ancient process that produces full-sized clones of any life form. These clones take a period less than a week to develop, and come with all the memories and knowledge the original life form had.

Worse is that the process will continue producing an ever-increasing number of replicas until disengaged. The science party is forced to send a distress signal to SC, which responds by dispatching battleship Prometheus.

Not long after arriving to the archaeologists’ rescue, Prometheus receives a second distress call from a passenger at a three-months distance. Lr. Commander Jennetta Carver is left in command as the chief commander and part of the team leaves in response to the new emergency.

Jenetta has to find a way to undo the replication process without destroying it. The problem is that the Raiders are tipped off about the cloning machine, and a month after part of the Prometheus team departs, they arrive to seize it. It’s part of jenetta’s duty to ensure the equipment doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. She only has two platoons of space marines, the archaeologists, and their clones to defeat the Raiders.

    Has anyone heard anything new about Mr. Deprima? I’ve very worried we have lost him.

    I found his books last year and loved them. Have not been able to find out when or if more books will be published. I’ve tried emailing per his contact page on his website but don’t get a reply so I’m wondering if he unfortunately has passed.

    • Graeme: 12 months ago

      I’ve spent some time researching and can’t confirm one way or the other. I did read some theories that this was a pseudonym, which would mean it wouldn’t show up in any online obituaries.

  5. David Daily: 2 years ago

    Is Thomas DePrima still alive? I’ve not seen any movement on the progress graph for his next book since Aug. 2021 and no newsletters since 2016? His last comments on the newest book delay said it would be out in spring 2022.

    • D Gray: 2 years ago
