So I’m happy to say that my Weird Wargaming post on a semi-serious look at the army of a “victorious” Third Reich is now posted on SLP in my first direct crossover between the two sites. (My review of The Man with the Iron Heart was originally posted on here and Never Was).
For my newest Sea Lion Press article, I turn to the subject of sports alternate history, a niche within a niche. The post talks about sports AH and how making an unusual and “weak” championship team is more interesting than just shuffling superstars around, as frequently happens.
I’m proud to present another Sea Lion Press review, this one being of the once-infamous The Big One series of alternate history/aircraft novels. The review can be found here. It was a lot of fun to write.
Sea Lion Press just released the Alternate Australias anthology of short stories. I’m a contributor to that, despite not really having any personal ties to that country. Oh well. My entry was a short story entitled “The Savannah War Dispute”, dealing with an alternate war in East Africa that Australia intervened in.
I was interviewed on Sea Lion Press about this blog. You can see the interview here.
My review/overview of the Kirov series on Sea Lion Press is up. I had a lot of fun writing it. It’s one of those series where it’s hard to give your opinion on it because of how strange it is. But I managed.
Box Press, my second Smithtown Unit ebook, has been released by Sea Lion Press. While the first installment aimed to pay homage to the “men’s adventure” genre in all its forms, this one has a narrower and more obscure foundation. That would be the weirder books in the 1970s that tried to move beyond just shooting mobsters and brought in stranger antagonists as a result.
Enjoy the next adventure of Bill Morgan.
My newest post on the Sea Lion Press blog is up, talking about the Draka series as a whole.
I’m delighted to announce that The Smithtown Unit, my debut book on Sea Lion Press, is now out on Amazon.
The book is an alternate history action-adventure novel in the style of the classic “Men’s adventure” books. If I had to list the closest inspiration, it would be MIA Hunter or Cody’s Army.
