We eased up to the checkpoint, the only car we’d seen in either direction for many kilometers.  The guard saw us coming from a distance, stepped from his booth and raised a hand for us to stop.
He circled the vehicle, a quick inspection, gun pointed nowhere in particular before approaching my window.  I thumbed it down obediently, blackout glass humming into its recess with a thunk.
“What year is it?” he asked.
“2013,” I replied.
“Who is the President of the United States?”
“Barack Obama.”
“Not Mitt Romney?”  He glanced around randomly, clearly bored.
“No.  Should he be?”
The guard shrugged.  “Not for me to say. Don’t give a shit about politics, it’s just part of the drill, y’know?”
I nodded.  “Anything ahead we should be concerned about?”
“Probability gets denser a klick or so down the road. When you see the Fog keep your windows rolled up, you should be fine.&

'Spacecraft of the First World War' is out!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 15, 2019, 5:40 AM
After seven long years, the book is finished!


Fifty spacecraft, five empires, two worlds, and one war. These are the fighting spacecraft of the war after the War of the Worlds.

Here at last is the comprehensive, full-color guide to the major spacecraft of the First World War. From humanity's first flight into space in 1908 to the Icarus Event of 1929, the beginnings of our journey into space and the conflicts that were fought there have their story told.

As an identification manual, it covers the fifty major spacecraft classes that saw action in the conflict. America, Britain, France, Italy, Germany, and Russia are all included. Also covered are the strange vessels of the Neomartian Secession. Details are given of development and combat histories, as well as background information about the war they fought in, and the world they fought for. The mysteries and paradoxes of this first space war are also touched on.

So great was the rate of technological change and progress during this period that the vessels herein can be used as touchstones for the development of space travel itself. From iron, to steel, and then to woven silicates the possibilities unveiled during the war set humanity on a cascade of technical development and discovery.

Here then, are the illustrated stories of the vessels of Earth's empires, recalling times long vanished, but the origin of the arrow that points to the stars.

(I know some people would prefer a physical edition, and if you don't care for digital books I totally understand. My motivation with going with this platform is to get the book to readers in a complete form and at a good price. I'll be looking at other solutions in the future, so stay tuned!)
