Another Review

5 Stars

As a big fan of science fiction I found The Zochtil to be a great story and an enjoyable read. The depth of the characters and the pace of the story keeps the reader engrossed and wanting to know what happens next. Packed with action and plenty of sci-fi elements, J.A. Dalley creates a universe that draws you in and makes you feel as if you are right there with the characters. The Zochtil is the first book in the series and I for one can’t wait to read the next books to come.

Gunship: First Strike!

26 02 2012

For all of you who are into science fiction I’ve got a great new game to show you. Steve Wood is in the process of publishing a game called Gunship: First Strike! It is a tactical space combat game without the crazyiness of a hexagon board.

Box Cover

Not only does this game eliminate hexagon boards, but it also allows the players to customize their ship. The base box will come with three different weapons : Blaster Cannons, Ion Cannons, and Thruster Bombs. If you back the project now on kickstarter you will get receive the upgrades expansion. Which will come with Heavy Blaster Cannon, Bomb Bay, a Fighter Ace, and a handful of other cards. As a kickstarter supporter you will also receive the x-perimental weapons: Auto-Blaster Cannon, Weapons Generator, Ion Bombs, Deffense Turret, Homing Missile, and the Heavy Ion Cannon.

For more information check out Steve’s website or the kickstarter page for Gunship: First Strike!

Just wanted to give y’all an update.

Book 2 in the Almek Manning series, the Starwarden is scheduled for release in June. I finished the second draft yesterday. I will spend the next month working on book three, at which point I will switch back to the Starwarden and begin the final editing process.

Sneak Peak at Book 2: The Starwarden

Part 1: The Academy

Part 2: Dalton Space Force

Part 3: The Starwarden

Also I pay tribute to Robert Heinlein again in this book. One of the ships that Almek Manning serves on is the Robert Anson Heinlein, a Fast Cruiser Carrier.


On another note, I am up to four reviews. I’ll post the fourth later.
