Vanguard (2017)
(Genesis Fleet, book 1)
Jack Campbell
"Vanguard is the book Campbell's Lost Fleet readers have been waiting for, whether they knew it or not. From the moment the young Robert Geary takes his first breath of air on a new planet, the story grabbed me by the throat and didn't let go. Strong characters, complex politics on multiple worlds, battles against impossible odds, this book has the whole package. And for those who haven't read the Lost Fleet books yet...start with Vanguard. Like...the moment you can order it."

Veracity (2009)
Laura Bynum
"A remarkable book, thought-provoking, horrifying, and yet hopeful."
thumb
Marking the Signs and Other Tales of Mischief (2005)
Laura J Underwood
"These edgy and sometimes disturbing tales evoke the southern Appalachian folkways and mythology with a deftness that only a native can manage.  Whether it's black magic against white, in "Marking the Signs", or a country boy's passion for his truck, in "Nice Truck", Laura J. Underwood has the right combination of believable characters, authentic mountain settings, a twist of humor, and cold-down-the-backbone touch of horror."
