    Coyote Frontier by Allen Steele

    The trilogy is neatly wrapped up bringing Coyote from a colony to political independence.

    book also set up future books.

    I highly recommend the Coyote books for anyone who enjoys hard science fiction

    Looking for something good to take on vacation. I generally enjoy James Rollins, Crichton and Dan Brown.

    Need a page turner recommendation. Thanks.

    Have you read “The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle”? It’s definitely a page turner.

    LawrenceTaylor’s book “Over the Edge” is a great read. We all know he was a phenomenal player but he lived an absolutely crazy life off the field that a lot of people don't really know. He had a ton of ups and downs throughout his career and talked about all the key people that helped him along the way (Parcells,Belichick). Good book trust me, check it out and the reviews.

    The Great Seige Malta 1565 by Ernle Bradford

    Bradford spends enough time setting the stage to help you understand that the people being discussed, Christian & moslum alike, were NOT swaft as F like we are today. These guys were hardcore.

    After setting the stage for a few chapters Bradford gives a blow by blow account about a critical encounter that reverberated through western history till today. ( ok German fuher Markel nurffed it, but the euros are getting better ...)

    I found it particularly interesting how brutal the fighting was from the start.... all rules of chivalry were abandoned and when everyone on Malta understood it was either victory or tortuous death things got real.

    Christians won!

    If you like those, you should try the Asia Saga by James Clavell. Brilliant historical fiction.

    Spindrift by Allen Steele

    OK for reals this time the Coyote trilogy is neatly wrapped up. LOL


    Spindrift finishes a few subplots, BUT HUGE subplots, left unanswered in the Coyote trilogy. Really is quadlogy ( what ever the word would be )

    we now know what those lights that were seen aboard the URSS Alabama in the first book & and what happened to EASS Galileo.

    also a big shoutout for legal weed - LOL



    4 books in and 4 to go, but really just getting started
