“Wow! It’s BUFFY meets FIREFLY on Mars with trains!”

- Barry J. Hutchison, bestselling author of SPACE TEAM

In the chaotic frontier colonies of western Mars, justice can sometimes go awry. So when Jess Flint and the crew of the Cannonball Express hear about a trainload of innocents bound for the darkest of fates, do our heroes step up? Damn right they do!

Unfortunately, so do the blackhats.

Cue a daring jailbreak, a race for freedom along the railroads of Mars, murderous bad guys in steam-copter gunships, and one flat-out crazy plan to get all the prisoners off-planet by sundown.

For Jess and her friends, it’s full-on do-or-die stuff, with danger reaching new heights when the Cannonball Express finally runs out of track... twenty-five kilometers above the Martian surface!

Now the only things that can save Jess and co from certain death are guts, teamwork, and some rusty old cans of expanding foam filler.

Oh, and the galaxy's best dog…

Kit Kane’s CANNONBALL EXPRESS is interplanetary adventure at full-throttle - an ongoing series of standalone steampunk space western sci-fi books brimming with action, monsters, comedy, and heart.

CANNONBALL EXPRESS - A Steampunk Space Western Sci-Fi Books Series - READER REVIEWS



A brilliant take on the steampunk space western sci-fi genre that transforms the traditional Mars that we know so well and transforms it into a rich canvas for smoke and fire action. Kit Kane is a serious new talent in the world of steampunk space western sci-fi and is going to create waves with this book. A fantastic and highly original story, with characters who leap off the page. What more could you want?

Cannonball Express is a rip-roaring, rollercoaster ride of a brilliant book. I was hooked from the first page and read it in one breathtaking blast. In this highly imaginative and original tale, Kit Kane expertly weaves together sci-fi and western settings to create a whole new and fantastically realised world of possibilities and adventures. With an addictive, page turning storyline, loveable and hateable characters, and bundles of shocks, cliffhangers, and laugh-out-loud moments, Cannonball Express is an absolute winner all the way. (Steam) Roll on book two, I'm ready for another ride!
