October 2018The Arasmith Certainty PrincipleRuss ColsonA geology grad student with a spiritual bent and a mystic from the Pleistocene find a modern skeleton in ancient rock and must risk their friendship to save the world from an unexpected danger lurking within the laws of physics.

Jen Hewitt, a quiet geology graduate student, doesn't actually believe in time travel. Were it possible, rocks from the age of dinosaurs should already be cluttered with artifacts from future time-tourists. Nevertheless, she proves with fellow geologist Jonathan Renner that a human skeleton encased in Pleistocene rock came from their own time. Their work, coupled with fundamental research by physicist Susan Arasmith, reveals an unexpected character to the universe that carries them from the safe world of science into a struggle with powers and possibilities they hadn't imagined. The three friends, along with Kar-Tur, a frightening mystic from the ancient past, learn that discovery is sometimes as much about faith as knowledge, and that friendship and love are often found where least expected.
October 2018Messiah GamesTom FlynnIn 2344, Terra is the most backward planet ever granted membership in the Galactic Confetory. It has two exports: the consumingly immersive medium called “senso” … and Earth religions, which jaded Galactics just can’t get enough of.

From the planet Vatican, Roman Catholicism teaches that God sends his Son to world after world. The Church levies vast fees to reveal which of each world’s historical religious figures (if any) truly Incarnated the Cosmic Christ.

Then a famed mathematician calculates where God will send his son next … a ruined planet where most offworlders are forbidden.

A lascivious Cardinal … a bumbling Mormon trideevangelist … a vengeful planetary mining magnate … everyone wants a piece of the newest Christ. Never mind that the man himself is a conscious fraud who can’t control his closest followers.

This tour de farce builds a complex future world, confronts classic issues of faith and “infotainment,” and spews mind-numbingly horrendous puns. A must-read satire!
October 2018Edge Of YesterdayAndrew J. WestAt the end of the second voyage humanity appeared doomed to extinction caused by a global superpox pandemic. Now, the world’s original superheroes confront Kali the demoness as she steers history toward the Cataclysm by taking possession of the most infamous mass murderers of the twentieth century, Adolf Hitler of the Jewish genocide, Talaat Pasha of the Armenian genocide, Pol Pot of the Cambodian genocide, and King Leopold the Butcher of Congo, as well as other demagogues.

In the third and final installment of the trilogy, Time Beings III: Edge of Yesterday by Andrew J. West, our heroes—Hanuman the monkey general, Vibhisana the seer and Kalika the Goddess of Time—travel to the edge of yesterday in a desperate attempt to undo the work of the demoness and save humanity from self-inflicted extinction.

“In this installment, the trilogy reaches its crescendo,” said the author. “In Forward to the Past and The Wrath of Kali readers encountered important persons from the Age of Discovery and ancient history. In this final voyage, readers experience twists given to modern events, many that have occurred in living memory.”

Apart from this trilogy, Andrew J. West has written extensively for Bangkok Post as well as authoring The Money Tree (2018), Thai Neotraditional Art (2015, now in second printing) and Destiny to Imagination: Prateep Kochabua (2013).

Anne Thompson’s life in 1956 was typical of a normal, solid, middle-class English woman. Then, for a lark, she wrote a letter to an American Air Force corporal, David Beckman, based in France, and he becomes a pen-pal. This sets off a chain of events, pushing her on an amazing journey through a life she could never have imagined.

If Anne had used her gift of heightened intuition, sometimes able see into the future through dreams and visions, and looked ahead, she would have been stunned by what lay in store for her. Would she have had the courage to face it? David Beckman, fell in love with her before he even met her in person, and when he came to England on leave, swept her into the tumultuous circle of her destiny.

Anne’s friend, Julian Sinclair, charming, good looking and aristocratic, was a successful, journalist/photographer. Anne, at nineteen, seven years his junior, was too young for him to consider having anything other than a platonic relationship with her; fighting against his deep attraction he thinks wise to ignore. They spent their time together, discussing philosophy, politics and the arts. Anne’s parents had made sure their young daughter had been well-educated. Anne, intelligent, strongly opinionated and beautiful, was an amusing companion for Julian. Anne hated the English class system, the poverty it produced. Julian argued it was not just relegated to Britain warning her not only in England is there a class system. This was a source of minor conflict between them.

A mysterious, handsome Indian Sikh, with beautiful dark luminous eyes appears one day while she is on an errand for her mother. Scrutinizing her as she waited for her order, he tells her, “You have the gift. Follow your heart. You will cross a vast stretch of water. There will be tears, but when destiny’s circle is complete, you will be happy.” After paying the shopkeeper, she looks around, but the Sikh has vanished. Was he real or a figment of her fertile imagination?

Swept away on an emotional tide, over which she feels she has little control, she ventures on a diverse journey of despair and joy, learning many hard lessons. Her life becomes almost intolerable until she meets an American Air Force pilot, who befriends her. Through twists of fate, coincidences, the Cold War and political upheaval leading up to the onset of the Vietnamese War, all four men influence her life for better and for worse.

Over the years, the Sikh seems to appear at times of crisis. Who is this mysterious foreigner? Where does he come from, and why did he choose to come into her life?

In Beware of Memories readers learned there are intelligent civilizations in the galaxy and one of them is attempting to make peaceful contact with a warlike species – mankind. In this continuation we navigate murder, deceit, political intrigue and personal tragedy to arrive at first contact. Can the promise of wondrous advances for humans, be reconciled with crimes against humanity? Difficult choices are made, while one is forced to answer the question: ‘What would you do?’

As the choices are made and second-guessed, Beware of Redemption introduces a much higher level to this three-dimensional chess match. Intricate plans rarely survive contact with reality, and in this case the players don’t even understand the game.


As I was reading Beware of Redemption I soon realized this is an example of Science Fiction done right. There is just the right amount of alien tech, just the right touch of suspense, and just the right number of errors in judgment on both sides of the universe. The Beware series (this is book 2) is the new standard by which I will apply all of my future readings. Patrick Jaynes and Darlien C. Breeze have quickly become my favorite Science Fiction authors. Keep your eye on them. They promise more surprises in store in their next book.
