Ben Flies Again

Just a reminder that tomorrow is my Reddit AMA starting at 7PM EST. For those who don’t know, AMA stands for Ask Me Anything and that’s what I’ll be doing. If you want to ask me something, just log onto the site and ask away. The site address is: http://www.reddit.com/r/books

Of course the question I’ve been asked most since the release of Falling Sky happens to be, “Will there be a sequel?” Now that contracts have been signed, I can say definitively that yes, there will be a sequel. Pyr has bought a follow-up to Falling Sky continuing the story of Ben and his companions in their post-apocalyptic future. The sequel is currently called Rising Tide and will hopefully throw readers some thrills and surprises.

I still have to turn in the completed manuscript so no release date yet but I will update here and on social media as soon as there is one.

I’m excited to continue the story of Ben Gold and I hope you’ll be excited to read it.

  3. […] If you’re reading this, and have visited the site before, you may have noticed that updates come irregularly. There will be a cluster of posts and then long absences. I want to apologize for that. The main reason for this is that all of the contributors, myself included, are extremely busy with other projects and work and family. I myself spent most of last year working on my first novel which was published back in October of 2014. At the moment I write this I’m currently working on the sequel to that novel. […]

Raining Fire – Out now!

Raining Fire, the third and final book in the Ben Gold series, was released on July 18, 2017. This book concludes the story begun in Falling Sky and Rising Tide. Publisher’s Weekly said, “Khanna wraps up his postapocalyptic adventure series with a capable page-turner…the airships, slavers, cannibalistic Ferals, and visceral action scenes make this a worthy culmination to the series.”

Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble now.

Rising Tide -Out now!


Rising Tide, the sequel to Falling Sky, was released on October 6, 2015. Publisher's Weekly said, "Khanna crafts a terrifyingly dismal picture of the future, raising the stakes by gradually stripping Ben of friends and support while throwing him into increasingly dire situations. His worldbuilding remains solid and unsettling, and he never loses sight of the human element. The cliffhanger ending is sure to leave readers on the edges of their seats, panting for resolution."

Falling Sky – Out now!


Falling Sky, my first novel, came out October 7, 2014 from Pyr. It's an adventure story set in a post-apocalyptic future with airships. Publisher's Weekly called it a "solid and memorable debut" while Library Journal gave it a starred review and named it Debut of the Month. For more information, please click here.
