Recommendations, and not

I’ve actually been reading lately; I’m sure it’s hampered my writing output, but I’ll get back to the salt mine in a bit.

Meanwhile, I’ve got a few recommendations for you. I’ve reviewed some of these on Amazon, but not all. In every case, I’ll try not to reveal too much about the book here, but I’ll tell you why I recommend them. I’ve personally read them all and usually I’ve gone back and bought other books by the same author.

Jeffrey S. Hepple:This author has several excellent books, each of which stands alone, but together they make up a number of fine series.
The principal characters are involved in some way with America’s wars, from the Revolution through modern combat. The ‘main character’ is a family. Individual characters are featured, then spouses, children, and relatives become the focus in following books; and that main character will at some point not survive. Hepple makes it all work. Military history has been a hobby of mine, and Hepple is extremely knowledgeable regarding history. Much of the work deals not with combat but with the affairs leading up to war and with the aftermath.
This link is to Gone For A Soldier, the first book in Gone for Soldiers; the setting is North America from 1774 through the end of the Revolutionary War.

There are a number of other volumes, all excellent; highly recommended.

Michael R. Hicks: This author writes excellent science fiction, and yes, his books form series. The general plot features a human introduced into an alien culture and how he grows and develops while immersed in this society. In the end, he’s not quite human, not quite alien; but the various books are very entertaining. I just got this one free; you should jump at the opportunity to get your own book while it lasts!

The books are highly recommended.

Not all books gain that ‘highly recommended’ status.
I’ve long been an admirer of Dave Freer, or was while he published through Baen books. But he’s now publishing independently on Amazon and the latest book is Stardogs.
I gave up halfway through. Not only is the writing poor quality (lots of typos, fragmentary sentences, etc) but I found the story to be poorly focused and difficult to follow. 
I wrote Mr. Freer and he answered, so I then sent my comments directly to him as a response. This time he didn’t answer.
Not recommended.

I’ll be making other recommendations in future.
