The Daedalus trilogy

TDI-coverThe Daedalus Incident (released Aug. 13, 2013): A mining colony on Mars is wracked with inexplicable seismic activity. The cause is stranger than any of them could imagine: the incursion of another dimension, one in which the late 18th century Age of Sail has unfolded…in space.
