BATTLEFIELD ON EARTH Released as Commemorative EditionBATTLEFIELD ON EARTH Released as Commemorative Edition
by BWW News Desk - Feb 9, 2016

L. Ron Hubbard's international bestselling novel Battlefield Earth is being released nationally as a commemorative edition by Galaxy Press this coming Father's Day, and includes a special dedication to the writers and editors who made science Fiction's Golden Age a reality. In a 1983 interview with the Rocky Mountain News, done when Battlefield Earth was first published, Hubbard commented on the period known as the golden age of science Fiction, 'Those of us who were there writing during that period have a unique viewpoint because we were there. 'Golden age' was a later characterization. At the time, it meant simply an explosion of interest and opportunities.' And so the dedication to 'Battlefield Earth' (www.galaxypress.com) is singularly unique in that L. Ron Hubbard recognized 87 individually named writers and editors of the 1930s and 40s who were all part of that explosion. The dedication simply reads, 'This brand-new novel is dedicated to Robert A. Heinlein, A. E. van Vogt, John W. Campbell, Jr., and all the merry crew of science Fiction and fantasy writers of the thirties and forties-The Golden Age-who made science Fiction and fantasy the respected and popular literary genres they have become today.' In defining that merry crew, Hubbard proceeds to list an additional 84 names. Hubbard continued, 'Some who wrote the pulps were called 'just science Fiction writers.' But history has proven that they were the ones who brought about the future-not the naysayers. We knew then that Man would travel to the stars and we know it still.' Concepts coming to fruition or now gaining widespread scientific recognition-ranging from microchip implants, robot drones and teleportation to the existence of other planets at the rim of the observable universe-were initially conceived of and written about decades ago by science Fiction writers such as Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard and H.G. Wells. The June commemorative paperback edition of 'Battlefield Earth' will be available at GalaxyPress.com, Amazon.com and BN.com and will contain expanded content including author's handwritten notes and an author interview. The 47 ½ long audiobook is the longest Fiction multicast audiobook ever produced comprising 67 actors performing 198 different characters with a soundscape employing over 150,000 sound effects and over 3 hours of original music created for the audiobook. For more information about 'Battlefield Earth' and the upcoming release, go to www.GalaxyPress.com. (more...)

Dr. Christian Sage Launches SAGE AGAINST THE MACHINEDr. Christian Sage Launches SAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
by BWW News Desk - Feb 8, 2016

Dr. Christian Sage and his team of archaeologists are at it again, this time discovering a tablet that confirms the biblical story of Jonah in the hostile territory of Iraq. However, they are up against former friend and colleague turned radical imam, Jabari Saal, who is empowered by demonic forces and is leading a worldwide campaign to restore the ancient religion of Cain en route to world dominion. 'It has been fun and adventurous to take the ancient biblical narratives of Cain and Jonah and integrate them into a modern geopolitical context,' said Brian Newberry. 'Sage Against the Machine, the sequel to The Battle of Pneumatika, follows Dr. Sage and his children on an epic political adventure that pulls the curtain back on the evil that lurks within unlikely leaders.' In Sage Against the Machine, Dr. Sage's grown children-Alex and Alicia Sage-are being pursued on both national and international fronts. In the United States, Alicia Sage has become a dangerous thorn in the president's side and a threat to his plan to reduce American dominance and radically bring about the New World Order. Now on the run abroad, Alex Sage travels from Italy to Egypt and Israel, encountering a barrage of opposition that includes CIA operatives, a remnant of giant demi-gods from ancient times, and the infamous Jabari Saal himself. Sage Against the Machine, the sequel to The Battle of Pneumatika, is not only a thrilling apocalyptic novel, but it also explores ancient biblical narratives, theology, and spirituality and places them within a thrilling tale of suspense in a modern political context. 'In my first book, the under-lying theme was asking the question 'why does evil exist,' explains Newberry. 'In Sage Against the Machine, we find our characters struggling to understand with whom they align themselves. Choosing evil over good isn't always the clear or easy choice. The combination of extensive research and creative storytelling hopefully provides an entertaining read while offering thought provoking considerations.' 'It has been such a pleasure working with Brian on his sequel to The Battle of Pneumatika,' said Lisa Umina, founder and publisher at Halo Publishing International. 'Brian has an ability to take well-known biblical stories like Noah in his first book and Jonah in this new adventure and create a world of angels and demons that are intriguing and entertaining. He introduces controversial theological topics without offering a right or wrong answer, which allows the reader to come to their own conclusions.' Spoiler alert: the story doesn't end here. Look for the next installment in the Pneumtika series coming soon. Sage Against the Machine is available at Amazon.com for $18.95. * Paperback: 500 pages * Publisher: Halo Publishing International (January 26, 2016) * Language: English * ISBN-10: 1612444253/ ISBN-13: 978-1612444253 * Product Dimensions: 6 x 1 x 9 inches About Brian Newberry: Brian Newberry graduated with high honors from Biola University, receiving a B.A. in Psychology and becoming inducted into the Alpha Sigma Lambda Society for scholastic achievement. He is currently pursuing an M.A. in Theology and Biblical Studies at Azusa Pacific Seminary. He is also a catechist at St. Pancratius Roman Catholic Church in Lakewood, CA.

BORDER LORDS AND ARMSTRONG'S WAR by New Mexico Author Lee Pierce is ReleasedBORDER LORDS AND ARMSTRONG'S WAR by New Mexico Author Lee Pierce is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 8, 2016

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit Fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the western double feature 'Border Lords and Armstrong's War' by Dos Caballos, New Mexico, author Lee Pierce. Pierce is also the author of the western adventure novels 'Bounty Hunter's Moon' and 'The Treasure of Peta Nocona.' This exciting western themed book includes two complete novellas by author Lee Pierce. In 'Border Lords,' when the Lucasville, Arizona, sheriff is gunned down by a ruthless gang of bandits, Deputy US Marshals Pharaoh Smith ('Bounty Hunter's Moon') and Silverjack McDonald ('Rough Justice') join forces to solve the murder of their former comrade. Pharaoh is a by-the-book lawman, while Silverjack will use any means possible to get the bad guys. All is not what it seems in this volatile border town, and it will take their combined skills to discover the real reason the town was raided. In 'Armstrong's War,' Badger Armstrong (alias Quick Jim Butler) stormed out of the family ranch in the Texas panhandle after a fight with his father 15 years ago, swearing never to return. Now tired of a gunman's life, he decides to ride back home, make peace with his father, and become part of his younger brother's life. Instead, he rides straight into a hornet's nest of hate and deceit. Mort Quarry has taken over most of the top grazing land in Deaf Smith County - except for the Armstrong ranch. Quarry is bound and determined to take over that ranch as well, and has lured Badger's gullible brother to work for him against his own father. Badger's pretty sure he can win the war against Mort Quarry - but first he'll need to survive his father's wrath while dodging bullets from his brother.

by Matt Tamanini - Feb 8, 2016

When looking at the history of film, distinct well-worn patterns develop over time; tendencies turn into tropes and conventions become clichés. This has never been truer than in today's Hollywood as reboots and franchises have dominated the calendar for the last two decades, drowning out originality and creativity. However, once every generation or two, a film so exceeds the limitations that an assigned genre has placed on it that it is destined to change the way that we look at cinema forever; THE JAZZ SINGER, CITIZEN KANE, SINGIN' IN THE RAIN, THE GODFATHER, PULP Fiction, and now DEADPOOL.

Stan Beebe Releases Fictional Memoir, THE WAR CHRISTMASES 1941-45Stan Beebe Releases Fictional Memoir, THE WAR CHRISTMASES 1941-45
by BWW News Desk - Feb 5, 2016

World War II and its impact were felt around the world, including small towns across the Midwest, and the young men who left home to serve in foreign lands. A new book released by Dog Ear Publishing brings the war home to a small town in Iowa, and its powerful narrative has been recognized with the Dog Ear Publishing Award of Literary Excellence. 'The War Christmases 1941-45' - a Fictionalized memoir by Stan Beebe - was one of only nine releases from Dog Ear Publishing in 2015 to be recognized with the literary award. The company's editorial team decides which products qualify for the honor, and the recommendations are then reviewed by the managing editor, editorial services manager, and the publisher. The book tells what it was like in a small town in the Midwest, especially at Christmastime during World War II, and follows the young men who went into service. Beebe describes it as a look 'at the positive side of life as a memoir blended with Fiction,' adding that it depicts the life and times of that era showing humor, love, and tragedy.' The author was especially pleased to hear that the book's editor 'could not put it down' and is delighted he can boast of an award for literary excellence. 'The very wording of that award pleases me,' he said. The book was a labor of love for Beebe, who grew up in small-town Iowa. Thus far the reaction to 'The War Christmases' has been positive. 'People who are reading it like it,' he said, adding that he had sold it to many of the residents in his hometown. He was one of seven siblings and was 8 years old when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and the United States entered World War II. He has also written 'Ben Franklin & the Prius,' in which a reincarnated Ben Franklin sets out in a Prius to determine whether 'all are created equal and the pursuit of happiness,' have any meaning in the 21st century.

'Damaged Souls: A Detective Inspector White Caper' by Jack Everett and David Coles Now Available as Ebook'Damaged Souls: A Detective Inspector White Caper' by Jack Everett and David Coles Now Available as Ebook
by BWW News Desk - Feb 10, 2016

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit Fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of 'Damaged Souls: A Detective Inspector White Caper,' the third book in the D.I. White Mysteries series from UK authors Jack Everett and David Coles. The authors have written other books together, including 'Damaged Goods,' 'Damage Limitation,' and 'The Diamond Seekers.' A fourth book in the D.I. White Mysteries series, 'Damage Done,' is also in the works. A day of reckoning-both personal and professional-is at hand for Detective Inspector Stewart White in the third installment of the D.I. White Mysteries. While White's team closes in on an elusive heroin smuggling operation, a prominent television executive reports that her twin teenage daughters have been abducted. The high-profile case is assigned to White, who must now divide his attention between the kidnapping and the heroin sting operation. That leaves little time to console his one-time lover, Connie Cleghorn, when she returns to the UK to take her mentally ill brother back to Florida for treatment. In stark contrast, his father is diving deeper into a heady love affair of his own-forcing White to consider whether his inability to maintain a lasting relationship is due to his job or to his own shortcomings. The two cases-and relationships-threaten to spiral out of control towards conclusions that are sure to surprise.
