Return to Virga, a bubble universe artificially separated from our own future universe, and the setting of Sun of Suns and Queen of Candesce.

Chaison Fanning, the admiral of a fleet of warships, has been captured and imprisoned by his enemies, but is suddenly rescued and set free. He flees through the sky to his home city to confront the ruler who betrayed him. And perhaps even to regain his lovely, powerful, and subversive wife, Venera, who he has not seen since she fled with the key to the artificial sun at the center of Virga, Candesce.

Schroeder sets a whole new standard for hard SF space opera.

Praise for Pirate Sun

Praise for Sun of Suns (A Kirkus Best of 2006 and a Romantic Times BOOKreviews Top Pick):

“Outrageously brilliant and absolutely not to be missed.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“A classic space opera…full of feudal castles and wooden ships, ancient compasses, old revolvers, and frothing beakers on one hand, and flying bikes, space travel, and cyborgs on the other.”
—Toronto Globe and Mail

“I loved it. It never slowed down. The background is fascinating and the characters held my attention. It reminded me a little of The Integral Trees, with technology a little more advanced.”
—Larry Niven

“Oh, what worldbuilding! Schroeder is a master.”
—Cory Doctorow

Praise for Queen of Candesce:

"
Karl Schroeder…is proving to be one of our most ingenious devisers of exotic, fantastic settings as well as a spinner of ripping yarns.… Schroeder’s world-building, storytelling, and character-drawing chops seem strong enough to given even Known Space run for its money.”
—Locus
