(Evo’s note: I’m going to break with tradition and gush unapologetically about this series. It’s quite simply amazing, from writing, production, narration… everything. I’ve blocked off the rest of the morning to mainline these final seven episodes!)

Quarterback Quentin Barnes has grown from a racist, small-town standout into a proven leader, a uniter of peoples, and the Galaxy’s most-famous athlete. Willing to do anything for his team, his Ionath Krakens have bound together through shared sacrifice, tragedy, devastating losses and thrilling victories.The GFL series melds star-spanning scifi, brutal crime fiction, and intense sports action into a smash-mouth extravaganza unlike anything you’ve read before.

Airman Flowers goes not to Vietnam but Germany, straight into a military Catch-22. His assignment: writing stories as a reporter for the Stars and Stripes newspaper which will never see print. Nate’s adventure deepens as he and his fellow troops try to understand why they’re there, the military mindset, and the massive social turbulence of 1960s America. Existential, psychedelic, funny, and laced with rock ‘n’ roll, Wild Blue Yonder is the story of Nate’s quest for personal and spiritual values while discovering the meaning of family, friendship, and the love of the girl he left behind.

Congrats to Paul J. Joseph for wrapping up his Through the Fold series. The sixth and final book, Window in the Sky, is now released!
With a lasting peace established between Earth and Baltan mediated by the growing alliance with the mysterious Szzzyyyxx, a new chapter in human history begins. But in the midst of this, the Szzzyyyxx Mother requests Sally’s help with a mystery. Two Szzzyyyxx vessels have disappeared in the far reaches of their space. Sally and Ian plan a controversial rescue mission with the first of a new line of experimental ships. They arrive in the region to discover a fold that doesn’t appear to go anywhere. On closer inspection, however, they find evidence of a black hole and a strange world that defies understanding. Through the use of a machine established in eternity, The Szzzyyyxx have teleported to Earth in the 1960s. There, captured by the KGB, they unwittingly help a rogue agent rise to power and dominate the Earth. But the power he uses to do this opens a door to something far worse. With their own past erased, Sally and her crew must rebuild history and defeat an ancient and universal evil.
The 747 that went up whole and came down in 876 pieces invaded every part of my life. My only consolation is that, without being able to turn around, she never saw the giant hole where the rest of the aircraft should have been. It was an oblong oval opening to the tumbling sky, bordered by torn cables, shredded aluminum aircraft skin, sheared beams, and spars, and accented with sparking severed wires. And I hope she couldn’t comprehend what was actually happening if she lived long enough to ride this nearly three-mile-high, free-falling hell-ivator all the way down to the ocean’s surface, and then sink to 140 feet below, where her body would wait to be recovered.
This is a TWA Flight 800 memoir told by Mark L. Berry, a former TWA pilot whose fiancé Susanne was one of the 230 passengers and crew who died when that flight exploded at 13,760 feet off Long Island’s southern shore. 41 original companion songs are infused into this story.

It’s the start of a brand new scifi trilogy! Enjoy Planet Secrets by Trisha M. Wilson
For someone who’s been in college as long as I have, you’d think I’d be used to people by now. And for the most part I am…until I met Meredith.
Meredith was annoying on too many levels to count and was just too self centered to live. Not that I had plans on killing her because I didn’t. Instead, I planned to ship her away to a slave planet where she’d spend the rest of her life toiling away in inhumane conditions. Poetic justice as I like to think of it for all she’d ever done to me.
But as I dug into her history, and present, I found out that she was looking for the Planet of Riches, a mystical planet which generations of people have been searching for.
A planet I’d just started searching for.
If that wasn’t bad enough, she was dealing with the Planet Mafia, the biggest and most organized mafia in the universe. Could I use this association to my advantage or would I end up disappointed? Would I find the Planet of Riches or end up as lost as all the others who’d searched and found nothing? What secrets did this planet have just waiting to be revealed?
The other books in this series are:
Planet Mafia (book 2)
Planet of Riches (book 3)
