The Rough Guide to Space Opera: Gareth L. Powell - Blue Tyson

Gareth L. Powell is am underrated science fiction writer who has produced a reasonable number of short works, a collection of such, and a couple of novels. The Recollection is about a trip through a space network by a man trying to find his brother, along with the love triangle ensarement ex-wife, and the interstellar space evil they have to deal with at the other end. Silversands is a small press space opera novel that is hard to obtain.

As far as short stories go, Memory Dust has a space jumper finding an octopoidal citadel on another planet. The Last Reef is a Tanguy Future History story and has posthumans on Mars, and you can find a podcast of this story. Six Lights off Green Star is about those crazy enough to play spaceship hyperjump Russian roulette and you will find it online.
