If you like my stories, here's a few other authors to consider.


Science Fiction

if you liked my books THE GEMINI EFFECT or THE PHOENIX DESCENT, and enjoy reading "the world just ended and there's scary stuff roaming around" stories, then I highly recommend you take a look at Sam Sisavath's Purge of Babylon series. I discovered Sam a few years ago, and couldn't read through this series quickly enough. His "ghouls" are scary as heck, and his characters are awesome. The link to his Amazon author page is below.


Military Science Fiction

Being a retired military guy, and a hopeless sci fi geek, makes military science fiction one of my favorite genres (to read and write). I discovered Jay Allan's Blood on the Stars series a while back and have read all 15 of the books in the series (and I'm patiently waiting for #16). Jay writes like a man possessed, and his stories are action-packed and swift. I love all his characters, too. The link to his Amazon author page is below. I would suggest starting with DUEL IN THE DARK and enjoy the ride!


Military Science Fiction

Fellow 47North author Marko Kloos's Frontlines series was the first military science fiction series I ever read. Marko was an enlisted soldier in the West German army back in the early 1980's, and his military experience shines through in his writing. TERMS OF ENLISTMENT is the first book of the 6-book series. He's also just released the first book of a new series (which is sitting in my Kindle right now) titled, AFTERSHOCKS, book 1 of The Palladium Wars series. The link to Marko's Amazon author page is below.


Military Science Fiction

At about the same time I discovered Marko Kloos's Frontlines series, I found Jack Campbell's The Lost Fleet series and devoured every book I could find. Jack Campbell is the pseudonym for retired US Navy officer John G. Hemry, and Like Marko Kloos, Hemry's military experience is evident in his writing.

Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction and Horror

Fellow 47North author Paul Jones began as a self-published author & then entered the world of traditional publishing with his Extinction Point series. As you can see from the picture, Paul is a dog guy so he's okay in my book...and from personal experience I can also say Paul is one helluva nice guy. He's just started a new science fiction series through Aethon Books--the This Alien Earth series--with the first book titled THE PATHS BETWEEN WORLDS. I've read the first book of the Extinction Point series (stay away from the red rain!) and THE DARKENING, and enjoyed them both. I've included the link to his Amazon author page below.



Science Fiction

Christopher Nuttall has been planning sci-fi books since he learned to read. Born and raised in Edinburgh, Chris created an alternate history website and eventually graduated to writing full-sized novels. Studying history independently allowed him to develop worlds that hung together and provided a base for storytelling. After graduating from university, Chris started writing full-time. As an indie author, he has published fifty novels and one novella (so far) through Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. The link to Christopher's Amazon author page is below.



Military Science Fiction

Glynn Stewart is the author of Starship's Mage, a bestselling science fiction and fantasy series where faster-than-light travel is possible-but only because of magic. His other works include science fiction series Duchy of Terra, Castle Federation and Vigilante, as well as the urban fantasy series ONSET and Changeling Blood.

Writing managed to liberate Glynn from a bleak future as an accountant. With his personality and hope for a high-tech future intact, he lives in Kitchener, Ontario with his wife, their cats, and an unstoppable writing habit. Link to his Amazon author page is below.



Military Science Fiction

From his Amazon author page: Eric Thomson is my pen name. I'm a former Canadian soldier who spent more years in uniform than he expected, serving in both the Regular Army (Infantry) and the Army Reserve (Armoured Corps). I spent several years as an Information Technology executive for the Canadian government before leaving the bowels of the demented bureaucracy to become a full-time author.

I've been a voracious reader of science-fiction, military fiction and history all my life, assiduously devouring the recommended Army reading list in my younger days and still occasionally returning to the classics for inspiration. Several years ago, I put my fingers to the keyboard and started writing my own military sci-fi, with a definite space opera slant, using many of my own experiences as a soldier as an inspiration for my stories and characters. When I'm not writing fiction, I indulge in my other passions: photography, hiking and scuba diving, all of which I've shared with my wife, who likes to call herself my #1 fan, for more than thirty years.



Military Science Fiction

From his Amazon author page: Britt Ringel has been a windsurfing instructor, Air Force captain, attorney, and teacher. He loves, reads and writes all kinds of science fiction. Over the last five years, he's built a galaxy full of smugglers, space navies, romantic interests, rival governments, and emerging technologies. From military science fiction to scifi romance and epic space operas, he publishes one or two books each year exploring new characters and old in an ever-expanding universe. Stop by for news about his latest projects, blog posts about scene inspirations and other extras about all his books.


Below are a few Nebraska authors I know who represent a number of different genres.
If you're looking for something to read, why not give them a try?


Biblical, Contemporary, Inspirational Fiction and Young Adult Fantasy

I've worked with Kim's husband for a lot of years at USSTRATCOM. From her Amazon page: "The wife of a submariner, Kim has lived in eight states over the last twenty years. She used her background in Drama (a B.F.A. from the University of Connecticut and a Master's Degree from Regent University) to stay relatively sane throughout all those moves by performing in various plays and musicals, including a one-person show about women in the Bible...Kim's novel, "Winter Trees," was a semi-finalist in the Christian Writer's Guild's 2010 Operation First Novel contest. Her non-fiction Inspirational and humor stories have appeared in several Chicken Soup for the Soul books, Vista, and online at She is a regular paid contributor to Thriving Family online magazine."

Mystery and Suspense

From her Amazon page: "Gina M. Barlean is a Nebraska author who writes mystery and suspense with a Midwestern voice, and characters who could be anyone the reader might know--a co-worker, an aunt, a neighbor, or even themselves. Small rural towns and Midwestern perspectives are something Barlean knows well. It takes a curious mind and good imagination to stay entertained in a one-stop-light town. However, don't be fooled. Interesting things can happen anywhere, especially in Barlean's books. Be assured, all is good in the simple lives of Barlean and her family...but in her books? Not so much. Conflict is alive and well in the novels Barlean writes."

Urban Fantasy, Horror, Paranormal, and Historical Fiction

From her Amazon page: "I'm a Nebraska girl, by way of Tehran. I've lived a lot of life, and the best is yet to come. I write because only writing keeps me sane. I am also a paranormal investigator and a student of life. I write fiction and non-fiction books, stories, and screenplays. My works include urban fantasy, horror, paranormal, and historical. People in my life tend to find their way into my work, so consider yourself warned!"

Speculative Fiction

From his Amazon page: "James M M Baldwin writes speculative fiction with an interaction between spirituality, science, and humanity. His science fiction, fantasy, and horror writing interjects spiritual self-awareness and its influence on the natural environment and the universe. Adding to the relationship between human nature and enlightenment, the occasional rocket ship and alien creature color his imaginary worlds. James is an author, artist, poet, musician, runner, and bicyclist. He is an active participant in the Nebraska Writers Workshop and lives in Omaha with his wife and children, and their dogs and cats."
