Happy New Year: Looking Ahead

The year 2020 could not have ended too soon.  It was like an unwelcome houseguest that had overstayed its welcome.  From COVID-19, to the continuing sad, sorry saga of Donald Trump and the the civil unrest that gripped much of the world over racial inequality, I think we will be glad to bid good riddance to the year. 

Nevertheless, 2020 is almost over, which is perhaps the best thing that can be said of it.  I believe that 2021 will be a better year and am certainly looking forward to it.  In terms of my reading schedule, I am looking forward to a significant reviewing schedule, including:

  • From the Ashes, by Sandra Saidak, is a novel that takes place roughly a century after the final victory by the Third Reich. I am currently reading this novel, and I will review it next month in this space.
  • Winds of Wrath, by Taylor Anderson, is the final installment in his 15-part epic Destroyermen series that has followed the adventures of Captain Matthew Reddy and the crew of the time lost USS Walker. I’ve been following this hugely enjoyable series since it first appeared and will be looking forward to sharing my thoughts with you.
  • Shadows of Annihilation, by S.M. Stirling, is the latest entry in the author’s action-packed alternate First World War series, furthering the adventures of ace American superspies Luz O’Malley and Ciara Whelan.
  • Finally, expect a review of the second season of For All Mankind, the alternate history of the space race, premiering February 19, 2021, on AppleTV+   Ronald Regan is in the Oval Office and the Cold War is getting hot on the moon. 

Thank you for staying with the blog for the over ten years that I have been writing it.  It has been, to quote the Grateful Dead, a long strange trip. I hope that you will join me in the New Year and that 2021 will be both safe and productive for you all. 

In the meantime, you can purchase Elvis Saves JFK! for just 99 cents and War Plan Crimson, A Novel of Alternate History, for $2.99 and now The Key to My Heart, also $2.99 (all are free to preview). All books -- which are already on Smashword's premium distribution list -- are also available through such fine on-line retailers such as Sony, Chapters Indigo, Barnes & Noble and Apple's iTunes Store.  

Take care of yourselves.
