M.R. Kayser's "Fast Cars and Rock & Roll"

Hello all:I'll be reviewing this book on my blog and am trying to help the author find other bloggers willing to do the same. It is supposed to be published some time in November and the author is willing to provide review copies in several formats. I'm pasting the blurb below:Deke Jones finally has a car ready to compete in the Conquistador—a short but grueling campaign covering race tracks all over the Southwest. He can't…See More

My first blog tour

Hello.I'm going to be organizing my first ever blog tour and giveaway soon, for a novel to be published some time around New Years, give or take a month. Obviously I'm new to this so I'm looking for some guidance.My first big question is regarding ethics, I guess. I don't want to do anything illegal but I'm not sure what is and isn't legal. I'd like one of the methods to enter the giveaway contest to be posting an honest Amazon review of a previously published book.Thoughts?See More

The Great Gatsby

I'm assuming this book is considered a classic. I don't read the classics that often, so I wouldn't know. But anyway, I've heard of this one all my life, and watched part of the movie a couple times, I think. The other day, it so happened I was in the mood for literary fiction, and already having an armchair historian's interest in the 1920s, I waded in.Story-wise, I didn't quite know what to expect. Turns out, the plot is an age-old standard about a poor boy's devotion to a privileged girl.…See More

The Unwanted by Daniel L. Carter

 Back in October, I interviewed Daniel L. Carter about his book, The Unwanted, the first in an urban fantasy/thriller trilogy. At that time I had not read it, but Daniel later sent me a free PDF copy as an apology for some chaos that ensued when he switched…See More

A Male-Oriented Book Blog

Actually, I welcome all followers, and cheerfully reciprocate, but the books I tend to blog about most are "men's fiction." I also discuss film and other stuff. But anyway, if you know anybody who might be interested in following, please point them my way. I'm down for blog tours and such, also. And if you have or know of a blog kind of on the same wavelength as mine, I might put it on my blog roll. http://twofistedblogger.blogspot.comSee More

Economic Armageddon

Many prophetic scholars (including me, though I'm more of an armchair "scholar") have predicted acatastrophic financial meltdown for decades. Today, many observers inside and outside the Church are grudgingly admitting that we're not crackpots, after all. At least not for that prediction.In fact, an astute observer who has never cracked a Bible open--but has merely made an honest effort to inform themselves despite the disinformation from government, media and popular culture--understands that…See More

Looking for reviewers of adventure

My military thriller, Hell & Gone, has already received some nice reviews. Those are always good to get, so more are always welcome. But I'd really like to get some reviews for my adventure anthology, Virtual Pulp: Tales of High Adventure, Low Adventure and Misadventure. It's the length of a short novel, comprising 5 short stories in different genres, and is the first of many such books I'd…See More

Five Stars From Midwest Book Review

Most indie authors can tell you (especially if the genre of their novel isn't romance, horror or chick-lit) that getting reviews for your book is often like pulling teeth or selling ice to an Eskimo. Thatcertainly has been my experience. Fortunately, Hell and Gonehas received some thoughtful reviews already. But the one I discoveredtoday is a big one, because it's from an organization that has muchoclout in the literary world. I've heard that librarians read theMidwest Book Review and order…See More

A Disappointment Delayed--Tarnsman of Gor by John Norman

I remember seeing later books from the Gor series on the bookshelves when I was a young G.I. on weekend passes, and thought them intriguing, but wasn't into fantasy at that point in my life. After I did begin toappreciate fantasy, I decided to start the series from #1 and fullyexpected it to be like John Carter of Mars, only perhaps better.There are similarities between this and Burroughs' John Carter of Mars, but it's…See More

A Tommygun Titan--Max Allan Collins' Road to Purgatory

My introduction to Max Allan Collins was his graphic novel, Road to Perdition. I thought it was OK, but not great. This sequel, however, rocked my socks.Let me get the blemishes out of the way, first (my nitpicking self just can't help it): Though the author obviously knows more than I aboutmob/mafia history, he blundered the facts a little in the Bataansegment...AND pushed the limits of believability maybe a wee bit toofar.Michael Satariano (AKA Michael Sullivan) is a troubled soul who,…See More

Profile Information

Favorite Book
How can I pick just one?
About Me:
Reading was almost the only form of entertainment available through most of my childhood. How I wish I had the time on my hands I did then! I still enjoy a good book in most genres--more than I do a good movie. I'm also one who goes back to old favorites now and then to read them over again.

Hi Henry. Thanks for becoming a new friend. I've kind of been away from Book Blogs for awhile due to a hectic schedule but getting back into the swing of things.
