    Space Opera and/or Space Pirate Recommedations

    Mrs. Yoshi is looking for some recommendations on good space operas and/or books about space pirates or mercenaries. Thanks on advance for any suggestions.

    I'm paying attention, I haven't read a good space series in ages.

  3. I've been looking for the same! The market for epic, space fantasy doesn't seem to be as lucrative as fantasy-fantasy at the moment, I guess.

  7. Simon R Green's Deathstalker series. One of the best space operas.
