An untested lieutenant. An unwinnable war. An impossible choice that could tear his platoon apart. Korea, 1950. Lt. Jonas Stuyvesant’s privileged upbringing hadn’t prepared him for the hardships of war. But when North Korea launches a surprise attack, he and his ragtag platoon suddenly find themselves on the front lines of a war not even Washington expected. And instead of North Korean peasants armed with pitchforks, Jonas and his fellow soldiers find themselves up against armored Soviet tanks and battle-tested hardened soldiers. Outgunned and outnumbered, his platoon retreats from Osan through Taejon on down the whole length of the Korean Peninsula until their backs are pressed against the sea. As the war-weary troops hunker in for a final stand, a twist of fate gives Jonas a chance to leave the deadly frontline far behind. Before their attackers close in, Jonas must make an impossible choice: leave his brothers-in-arms facing the enemy alone or sacrifice everything to stand by their side to the bitter end. Forgotten Valor: A Novel of the Korean War is a visceral work of historical fiction covering the first three months of America’s forgotten war. If you like under-examined military history, gritty details, and soldiers’ perspectives, then you’ll love Richard Thomas Lane’s story of courage under fire.

Robin and Miranda go to bed in their separate rooms, but wake up somewhere else. Somewhere that is alien and way outside their comfort zone. However, as they discover more about their new surroundings and have several unusual and action-packed adventures, they begin to suspect that all may not be as it first seemed. As the days progress, their passion for each other grows as their relationship develops emotionally and physically. However, is someone or something watching them? Why do they keep discovering things which don’t feel right? And what’s the story behind the various androids who they meet during their adventures?
As well as being a fast-moving science fiction action and adventure novel, this book touches on several social topics. Covert surveillance; humanity’s journey after the extinction of Earth; how AI might develop; and whether humans would, one day, upload their minds into robots (and, if so, what sort of society might result?)

“A high-octane, intellectually gratifying thriller.” (Steven Konkoly)
How does a human survive in an alien dominated InterGalactic Community? By becoming an assassin, of course.
At least, that’s what Leopold thought when he became an assassin for the elite. Pretending to be an alien known as Voidstriker, Leopold feeds his appetite for vengeance, killing aliens as well as taking their money. It’s a win-win to his mind. That is, until a bounty is placed upon his head.
With his true identity now revealed to the IG Community, Leopold knows it’s only a matter of time before the powerful family members of his victims come for blood. Far worse is the fact that the one who put the bounty on his head, is the one he most fears.
A routine job three cycles ago brought him face-to-face with Mastrodai, a prince of the powerful Mrrog Nation. Not only did Leopold—accidentally—destroy part of Mastrodai’s moon, but one glimpse of the mighty alien had him feeling desire for the first time in his life. He ran, and like predator after prey, Mastrodai never stopped hunting him.
Leopold is convinced that Mastrodai wants bloody revenge. But when he finally confronts the mrrog, he is stunned to realize Mastrodai wants something very different. Something surprisingly intimate—the one thing that scares Leopold more than torture.
WARNING: 1) This is NOT a fluffy romance and 2) There is torture/rape OFF PAGE (NOT between the main couple, Mastrodai and Leopold–their sexy times are always consensual), and dealing with the aftermath of assault.
