Überhaus Diary: Monster Mart

One of the benefits of city living is that you generally don’t need a car–f you are willing to make certain compromises.  Cargo carrying is one of them.

Holy Cow!

Author Mike Fuller took the time to review Hawser. Talk about making my day! Reblogged from mikefullerauthor.com         “If I die today, I will have had this.”  “I knew how to fly when I was born.” JHC gets it. But the book is so much more than flying and fighting. The nature of war […]
