I am a die hard sci-fi space opera reader. I read an ongoing series that was a work in progress about 5 years ago. This was a series of books, each about 300-400 pages long. There were 4-8 books in this series. The author was not someone who most people would recognize (i.e. Asimov, Robinson, etc.).
The premise of the books is that there are a group of normal humans. There are also some cyborgs (which they defined as mostly machine). The cyborgs are most definitely evil. The main character takes part in battle after battle - all centered in Earth's solar system. None of the parts I got up to took place outside of the solar system.
There is one scene in one of the books where they take part in a denial of space strategy by releasing huge clouds of dust moving at relativistic speeds toward enemy ships. The dust obliterates the ships. Behind the cloud of dust is our main character (Marvin?? - Can't recall!). His ship is badly damaged (or destroyed, and he's in a space suit). He's been able to do a gravity assist off a planet and is on his way to kill the main cyborg hideout on Uranus.
There's also secondary hide outs on various asteroids in the solar system - especially some that are further out. There's another scene where a missile blows up one of those asteroids.
I read most of the books in this series online. I can't find the books anymore - I want to make sure that I finished reading all of them.
Any ideas? Thanks for looking!
