^ The current plan is to have Storming Heaven
go on sale at the end of June 2012, just in time for Shore Leave
, so that the series' finale can break in the same place as its premiere did seven years earlier.
Then again, maybe that was more of a miniseries than an ongoing series, since it was only, what, six books long, not counting The Valiant?
Well, when Vanguard
concludes it will number only eight books, including the anthology Declassified
. I'm not sure there's a minimum threshold that distinguishes something as either a series or a miniseries. The distinction between the two, I think, might be that a miniseries is a subset of stories within a larger established series. In that regard, I think that both Stargazer
deserve to be classified as series in their own rights.
