This is a short story set in the BattletechÂ® Universe concerning Duncan Fisher, a broadcaster for the Solaris VII battlemech arenas fights. The majority of this story takes place in Duncan's younger days when he was an up-and-coming mech pilot competing in the medium-weight class competition.
This story was commissioned by me in an effort to flesh out the background of the Duncan Fisher character. The story is an original work of fiction based on characters created by Ferret Baudoin and myself for the video game, "Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries" released in 2002 by Microsoft Game Studios, FASA Studio and Cyberlore.
This is my first foray in audiobook-style recordings. Although it was challenging in many ways to me as a voice actor, it was a labor of love for me and is presented purely as a token of my appreciation to the fans of my work and to the fan communities surrounding the Battletech and Mechwarrior game franchises.
