Two Jethros, A Jim Brown, and an Ella Fitzgerald



What the what?!?

If you're a fan of the Big Heist, you might recognize the reference.
If you're not, no worries; we've got your decoder ring right here.

The subject line's from the movie, Ocean's Eleven.

In one of the key scenes of the movie, George Clooney tries to sell Brad Pitt on a casino heist.
When he asks Brad what he thinks it'll take to pull a job like that, Brad's famous rejoinder is:
"off the top of my head, I'd say you're looking at a Boesky, a Jim Brown, a Miss Daisy, two Jethros and a Leon Spinks, not to mention the biggest Ella Fitzgerald ever."
Okay, but what does this have to do with Aeon 14 and the next Enfield Genesis book?

Turns out that Shannon's a big fan of old-Earth 2D vids, especially ones like Ocean's Eleven, Inside Man, A Fish Called Wanda, and The Usual Suspects.

Good thing, too. Because all of her expertise with the con game will serve her well as she embarks on her first field mission for team Phantom Blade.

That's right; Sirius, the fifth and final book in this story arc, is a heist — and it's one for the books (well, okay, book....)




What's it about?

Jason and Terrance have one more mission to complete before their return to Alpha Centauri.

Reports from Sirius speak of atrocities by the Sirian Hegemony, committed against AI and human alike. Don’t miss the fifth and final installment in the Enfield Genesis series, where the crew of the Avon Vale fly once more into the breach to free the oppressed.
