The Rangers: Tales from a Post-Apocalyptic America. This came from an anthology in early 2017, after the orange menace. The first story in the collection, The Last Ranger, came out as part of the Alternative Truths anthology. Had so much fun in the world I’ve added four more stories (so far) with notes about lots more.
The year is 2053 CE. Dale Embry just wants to become one of the paladins of the Forest Service, a Park Ranger. But there’s a war going on with the New Confederacy and Dale is on the front lines, apprenticing his craft with Stan Hawkins, the last man authorized by the old Congress of the United States, before the second Civil War. Dale and Stan have to thwart an invasion, rescue a maiden, and then invade a foreign country.
But that’s the price, if he wants to wear the gold badge.
The seventh Science Officer book: The Hammerfield Gambit is now available for pre-order on all the usual suspects.
The eighth Science Officer book: The Hammerfield Payoff is also available. Both books drop December 10.
With that, we will come to the end of Season One of The Science Officer. I have already begun working on Season Two, but need to come out with some other things first, so I hope you will be patient. It will be worth it.

As usual, I’m always open to gossip, spoilers, and questions. Most of the time, I think I have about three folks out there reading anything, and one of them is probably my mother. So feel free to say hi.
