Howdy Happy Readers!
I’m doing my best to cram in a few more reads before we run out of days in the year. Since I read slow, that means SHORT STORIES. Luckily, I had a few in queue that I could tap into. It also means short blogs! So, without further ado, here are my impressions of two short stories written by William Joseph Roberts for you to go check out.
The Tomb Of Ro`Erd (Draven the Red Wolf Book 1)
Prepare yourself for the onslaught of dozens of unpronounceable names and places! The lore will leave you… quickly. What I’m saying is that it starts slow, but the denouement is high geared and high powered. And who needs all those names and places when you can split skulls with an axe! Draven and his hapless band put the barb in Barbarian! YAAAAAWWWWPPPP!

Orbital Odds: A fLUX Runners Universe Short Story
A know-it-all space station grease-monkey thinks he’s beyond reproach just because he’s been around a long time. A spoiled rich kid thinks he’s the universe’s gift to the Space Marines because his politically powerful daddy said he was. When the two cross paths… the interaction is sure to put them at Orbital Odds… Place your bets!

I know, I know, those sound like blurbs more than reviews, but they are short stories and details tend to spoil them. If you really need details, they are both just a buck each on the ‘Zon. Go read ’em!
That’s it! Short and Sweet!
Until next blog…

I’m a writer, not a filmmaker, so videos are few and far between. I plan to venture out into that territory some though, so you can look for my video stuffs in the following places.
Coming Soon: Odyssey, Rumble
If Science Fiction Space Adventure is what you crave, then you should check out my anthology, Horizons Unlimited: Volume 1.
Matter conversion technology—Matt-Con—has broadened the scope of mankind’s existence. It has opened up the real possibility of viable colonies on other planets in our solar system, and even space itself. Anywhere matter can be captured or energy from the sun can be felt, the possibility of expanding human habitation exists.
In this volume:
Quicksilver (short story)
The space station Chariot of Helios—on its way to Mercury to become a power collection station for Earth’s growing need for energy to power matt-con tech—encounters a strange anomaly that threatens ship and crew.
Null Gravitas (short story)
New crew and new relationships form above the skies of Venus. A post-prequel to Escaping Aurora.
Escaping Aurora (novella)
The sudden destruction of mankind’s first atmospheric terraforming platform leaves three unlucky exonauts struggling to survive in the skies of Venus aboard a cobbled-together airship. Meanwhile, the commander of the space station above battles obstacles that might keep her from rescuing her stranded husband and crew in time.
If you like intrigue, humor and a bit of speculative technological supposition, you should pick up a copy of my technothriller-comedy eConscience Beta from Amazon today!
Peacekeeper Incorporated’s breakthrough nanotechnology could bring repeat offense crime to an end, freeing society from the need for criminal incarcerations. But first, they have to finish testing it. With funding on the line, and time to prove out the project getting short, the lead scientist must find a way speed things up. That’s unfortunate for his guinea pig, and anyone who would stand in his way.
Can the goal of ending most crime justify committing one… even a few?
And what happens when you conflate altruism with egotism?
Find out in eConscience Beta, where two lab techs and an uncouth petty criminal must outwit a brilliant but sociopathic scientist who’ll stop at nothing to establish his legacy as the man who ended crime.
