Coming Summer 2024

The world is engulfed in war and Captain Steven Hawklin has answered the call. The stakes soar higher than ever before and the fate of the free world teeters on oblivion.

 Aided by Hardy Miller's razor-sharp intellect, and Oz Lyman's unmatched resourcefulness they become the most potent weapons against the Nazi menace. 

When the Germans invade Paris and capture an ancient relic, the One True Cross of the crucifixion, they set in motion a chain of events that sends Steven on a heart-pounding race against a malevolent SS officer who is aided by Steven's most cunning enemy, Maximillian Odenthal. 

Meanwhile, on the sun-drenched battlegrounds of the Pacific, tramp steamer captain Zane Carrington fights valiantly to protect his crew amidst the relentless Japanese onslaught. Little does Zane know, his actions hold the key to unlocking the secrets that will guide Steven Hawklin to the True Cross. The intertwining destinies of these two warriors unfold against a backdrop of war, weaving a tapestry of intrigue, danger, and unbreakable bonds. 

"Captain Hawklin at War" is an epic tale spanning the war years of 1940-1945 where the quest for an ancient relic becomes a catalyst for heroism, sacrifice, and the enduring power of camaraderie in the face of darkness. Will Steven Hawklin and his valiant friends defy the odds and rewrite the course of history? The answer lies within the pages of this gripping wartime saga.

My Review of The Terrors By Brian K. Morris

This fast-paced pulp inspired novel is steeped in tradition, yet reminds us of the ever recurring theme of racism. Mr. Morris provides us with a hero's story, a journey if you will. He structures his tale with unbridled passion, and his unbound knowledge of the source material is evident while you read this updated version of a popular character from the golden age of storytelling. If you're a fan of the original Terror, or are discovering this for the first time you'll find the story fresh, the dialogue well-written and the love for the story prevalent in  Mr. Morris' writing. I only hope book 2 won't be too far away.
