The Caledonian Gambit (Talos, 2017)



“The action scenes, both on the ground and in space, show a focus on thoughtful planning and careful pacing. The characterization delves just enough into emotionality to give the characters realism without moving the focus away from fights, intrigue, and spycraft.”

Publishers Weekly

“This is a great spy story, with tidbits of science explaining the intergalactic travel and even a hint of romance to come. The reader is left wanting more background on each of the significant characters and hoping for future adventures.”


“Dan Moren is best known as a podcaster and tech blogger, but that could soon change. This debut novel is a brisk and fun adventure with spies, family drama, and space battles, carried off with a light touch and an old-school style that’s entirely welcome in the frequently grimdark world of modern genre fiction, and a main character you won’t soon forget.”

B&N SciFi & Fantasy Blog

“The Caledonian Gambit is a throwback to the classic sci-fi adventures of spies and off-world politics, but filled to the brim with modern sensibilities.”

Fresh Fiction

“A wisecracking caper that nevertheless doesn’t skimp on the details and human cost of interstellar war, like John Le Carre meets The Stainless Steel Rat. Moren is one to watch.”

—Antony Johnston,
author of Atomic Blonde and The Coldest Winter

“Immersive, intergalactic spy-fi. Moren gives us a Cold War thriller with wormholes and anti-grav fields.”

—John August,
screenwriter of Titan A.E. and Big Fish

“Hypercool. It’s like the Golden Age of sci-fi got an upgrade, with all the big honking space cannons and some desert planet dry humour thrown in for the bargain.”

—John Birmingham,
author of the Axis of Time trilogy

“Highly recommended, snarky sci-fi adventure”

—Joe Zieja,
author of Mechanical Failure
