Two New Books from Friends to Share…
Folks, it’s Saturday. Time turns to reading, at least for me…sometimes to book reviewing, too (though I’m way behind on that, I do intend to get back to it sooner or later).
Today, I have two great books to share with you, especially if you enjoy military science fiction/adventure stories.
First, my friend Loren K. Jones’s second e-book from Twilight Times Books is out; it’s a short story collection called STORIES OF THE CONFEDERATED STAR SYSTEMS. I edited this book, and it’s a fun, fast read with a lot of great stories…right now, it’s only ninety-nine cents, too! (That won’t last long.) I grabbed my e-book copy right away, and hope you will, too.
“But Barb,” you protest. “I want to know what I’m getting into, before I buy this book, even for ninety-nine cents.”
Ah. Well, I have you covered…there is a free sample of Loren’s newest up right now at the Twilight Times Books website.
“So, who’s your other friend, Barb, that you’re ‘pimping’ today?”
Hmmm. I’d not use that word, quite…it’s more of an informative thing, really.
“Spit it out, Barb.”
OK, OK. My friends Jason Cordova and Chris Smith recently released KRAKEN MARE as an e-book. It’s about a disillusioned former Marine, who stumbles onto a mystery after taking a job on Titan’s moon. But it’s not a benign mystery; oh, no. (That would be too easy.) Instead, it’s a mystery that will “shock the foundations of the universe…something out of a nightmare,” as the book description says.
I don’t have a picture to add to this one…but I can tell you I’ve read several chapters already, and am enjoying it quite a bit. (No one does military SF/horror hybrids quite like Jason Cordova. And Chris Smith’s influence is felt in myriad ways…this book will not disappoint.)
Hope you enjoy them!
