Veldt Hunter

A well woven tale of the people of the veldt, balanced on the whole I thought as to the general issues of the time.

Many stories have been writ about the resources of vast areas of the world susceptible to warfare and affray, this one not the least.

Ironwood

Ironwood reads with a special blend of medieval type chivalry and the genesis of a pantheon. It has well defined antagonists, and a milieu of evolving nations to keep the interest of anyone inclined to follow the young leader and his growing band of enablers.

All God's Orphans

I read this at the end of the first year of an international pandemic situation, in USA. Elements of the story feature harbingers of how an epic failover sorts out in its after effects, with the strong theme of a Dystopian scenario adding a backdrop to the confusion of the people.

Five stars for the concept, the location settings, and the strength of characters. Four because I couldn't keep an accurate timeline going, and no valid cause of the origin of chaos was put forth directly, or explained.

This storyline was intriguing with the denouement set at NORAD in Colorado, and I found it interesting that the Mormans were on site to defend Cheyenne Mountain.

The author's final solution included elements of redemption on earth, cessation of violence, and a lot of hope for basic humanity. Well done, and thank you.

One of the things I didn't expect from this writer, is the sense of confidence I got early into the story, that my reading experience was in good hands and I could just relax and enjoy the story.

Polowan!

Polowan! Excerpt was written to establish a backstory for the character. Her five hundred year effort to obtain redemption from a powerful Ute Indian god called Senawhav will have stories set in the historic Gold Mine District of Colorado USA.

Historically, Ute Indians would have visited some hot springs located here, although feisty older locals deny any such possibility.

Traders, Indians, railroad people, miners, dance girls, Chinese, Irish, all these types of people are often depicted in Old West television series, nothing new here in Polowan's general back story, except we don't hear of Chinese Indian pairings as a historical feature in any of the Native American Nations's descriptions of their times with, for, or against newcomers of the 1600s - 1800's.

In the late 1800's this area took more gold in just several years than the Alaska and California gold rushes combined.

Steam engines replaced much beloved teams of donkeys (watch for SteamPunk storyline).

Trains brought tens of thousands to the area, brought in timber, bricks, blasting supplies, steam engines and of course relayed millions in gold back off the mountain. (watch for gold heist storyline)
It is feasible Chinese track layers could have been here.

Tour guides tell us that there are enough tunnels (known as drifts) and shafts to stretch to the Pacific Coast of USA if laid out in a row... (Watch for underground action, like 1000 ft below the surface type underground).

We know of one current independent privately held mine currently at very far lower than that, and Cripple Creek has discovered even more gold. They will be going down five miles.

Polowan's story is important to our perceptions of women of her era, to our current relations to Colorado Native Nations, to our perceptions of what we've done to the environment here, to what our goals might become as our own era of time takes it's place on the historic timeline.

Sorry Can't Save You

Journalism, military practices, intolerance outside of social norms, stressors on family dynamics when the unit becomes the framework for support, when the unit cannibalizes one of it's own and the system isn't there either, AWOL.

The bodies just keep stacking up. Those are the lucky ones IMO, off to another unknown place but out of the pressure cooker of PTSD, family obligations, military secrets, social inadequacy, bigotry, the silence of unit cohesion...

This story is one of several I've seen written before the Corona Pandemic of 2020AD, yet it resonates strongly for young people who may at some time become displaced, and learn to live outside of a failed structured society, and it offers strong human characteristics to look up to when hard decisions have to be made.

British SAS rarely receive the credit they so richly deserve as they quietly and efficiently train hard, secure mission objectives, and move into places of further responsibility after service.

We just don't hear enough about these heroes and this book has all the hallmarks of an informed and intelligent true story, as anyone who's heard about those snarky Somalian pirates would wish it could be, as well as the other venues of disrepute addressed by the protagonist and his men.
