Al Clark-Asteroid (Book Five) is Live

Al Clark-Asteroid, the fifth installment of my Al Clark Series is now available on most major digital sites. This new book was a year in the making and different than the others. For one thing, I didn’t have to kill anyone off. There are some close calls of course, but nobody dies. In the same tradition as the other books in the series, it is good old-fashioned science fiction. Other than Al and Robot Nine it has a totally new cast of characters, new exciting locations, and unexpected villians. It is part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone.

There is a dark and desolate asteroid far out in our solar sysem, hiding among a multitude of orbiting frozen rocks, with a large hatch leading inside. Waiting patiently in the bowels of this abandoned black planetoid is a discovery with the potential to revolutionize space travel.

When Al and his intrepid crew received a questionable tip concerning a mineral rich prospect begging to be exploited, they undertook the long trip to investigate. Upon arrival they suffer a space explorer’s biggest nightmare. Through no fault of their own their ship crashes, stranding them with limited supplies and resources.

Their first and highest priority is to survive. The second priority is to repair their ship well enough to leave and complete the rebuilding at the nearest shipyard.

Once the crash cripples their ship, the odds are stacked against them, and they will need to utilize every resource to escape – including the treasures contained deep below the hatch.

Can they make use of the discovery concealed inside this unremarkable black asteroid?

Wally (Updated)

This is the updated version of the drawing now included in my prequel to the AL CLARK Series. Best of all? The short story is discounted.

If you like good ‘Old-Fashioned’ Sci-Fi Adventure–something without a lot of war, politics or sex, you might like this series. All but the prequel are available in (eBook-Paperback-Audiobook)

Holiday Games

This is the time of year when family gathers to celebrate. A great excuse to break out the board games, play football, or participate in any one of a thousand forms of entertainment.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

How many games can you find?

Super Doodle #1

When I don’t have it in me to write – I draw. It keeps the old brain focused. This is something I’ve been working on for about a week off and on. I call it a Super Doodle. Incorporating all the different elements into the drawing was fun, although taxing. My Sakura Micron pens allowed me to blend at least 26 unique components into the piece, with some areas that are three dimensional. To tell the truth, I’m pleased with the end result.

How many scenes, objects, and creatures can you locate?

All Terrain Crawler

It’s been a while since I posted any art, and I have felt guilty. It’s just that there is so much time spent on promotion, there doesn’t seem to be much left. Anyway, this is an oldie but a goodie. Something I did many years ago, and one of my personal favorites.

I can picture myself (and fellow adventurers) exploring new planets, happily traversing the landscape without a care in the world.

Rock Painting

My granddaughter is into rock painting, and is experimenting with paint markers. She’s a chip off the old block. These are mine. You can’t have them.

Our Tiny Blue Dot

A view from space of the only known habitable planet. One would think we would appreciate the complexities and fragility of  our world. There have been cataclysmic events in the past. However, we weren’t around to affect the change.

Space Elevator

My current interest (when I’m not writing) is ink drawings, sometimes referred to as line drawings. I love the contrast.

Space elevators are only theoretical at this point in time, but in the future – who knows?

Sometimes it’s interesting to see what a black on white drawing looks like reversed. Which do you find most appealing?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Save the Elephants

The world is a complicated place. Science makes new discoveries daily, and still we know so little. Who can say that the extinction of elephants would not have an affect on us? I believe if there was no market for ivory the problem would be half solved.

Christopher’s Journal (Update)

Christopher’s Journal (Prequel to The Al Clark Series)

Chris is nursing a badly sprained ankle and has time to kill, so he created his own Chessboard and pieces. He and his father played chess when Chris was younger and those days he remembers fondly. Playing against himself is not as fun, but it passes the time. The diagrams at the top helped to reintroduce him to the game.

He cut the chess pieces from paper, with the ‘black’ pieces dyed using coffee grounds from a pre-packaged breakfast. Although crude, it’s good enough to play the game.
