December, 2013. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Good Yuletide and have a great winter holiday season whatever you call it . When the snow falls, it's time to snuggle up by the fireplace to read the first three books of the Morgaine Chronicles, a tale of witchcraft and sorcery, which are available as a boxed set at just $5.99. For a dollar more than the price of one book, you get three. Here is the link: Boxed Set. The latest book in the Morgaine series is Morgaine and the Sorcerers' Guild.
I have submitted a third novel in the The Traveling Vampire series, The Return of the Countess, to my publisher. Available soon.
In school? Take your Kindle or Nook with and read a humorous adventure story such as Dinner With Dracula and its sequel The Eye on the Pyramid when the professor's lecture gets boring. These novels relate the rollicking adventures of Charles Winterbottom, anthropologist, buffoon and womanizer.
Other novels available on Page Turner Editions, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Sony or any other online book seller are The Swordmaker, the heroic adventures of a Viking, book six of my Raven Lenore series, The Case of the Missing Android, (note a seventh Raven Lenore novel will be published shortly, The Case of the Gypsy Curse) or The Sleeper an adult retelling of the Sleeping Beauty legend set in modern times. If you enjoy pirates and erotica, try Pirate Booty. A short story of mine is in this anthology of naughty pirates.
My humorous fantasy series, The Books of Retslu, will soon be available in print format. The first novel is called White Queen, Black Knight.

If someone would ask me what the best SF or fantasy TV series of all times was, I would have to cast my vote for Lost. Although there were no really spectacular special effects, it grabbed your attention every show. It had mystery, unusual and well rounded characters, and just enough sex and romance. Even the fantasy elements were made believable. I thought the acting was superb. The first season main characters, Jack Shepard, a doctor with a guilt complex; John Locke, a true believer in fate; Kate Austin, an accused murderess; Hurley, a lottery winner who feels cursed; Sawyer, a con man; Sayid, a former torturer for the Iraqi Republican Guard; Claire, a pregnant single woman; Sun and Jin, a Korean couple with a troubled marriage and Charlie, a drug addicted rock star were interesting and well played. Even the villains were noteworthy such as the strange Ben Linus, who causes much trouble for everybody. Also, the new characters added such as Juliet, a fertility doctor; Desmond, a man who can see the future; and Daniel Faraday, a physicist interested in time travel were all quite interesting. There were many more, too numerous to mention in this post.
What I especially like about it was that each episode brought about a new mystery deftly woven into the plot. As one mystery is solved, one or more mysteries and problems are encountered. In a way it was like doing real science. Each character, depending on their personality, had their own way of dealing with the problems that come up, further enriching our understanding of them. What could be more fascinating? Some of the mysteries involved include a bunker that requires that a number be updated every couple of hours, time travel, a crash landed small plane in a tree, several groups of people not survivors of the crash, a mysterious smoke monster, a polar bear, ghosts and many more strange events.
If any of you reading this missed the series, run right out and get the DVDs. They are well worth your time and money. Here is an extremely brief summary of the plot. A commercial jet crashes on a desert island. As the survivors attempt to cope with their situation, they find that the island hold many mysteries and dangers. In flashbacks, we learn something about the lives of the various characters and why they were on that particular flight. Or in the case of the Others, how they happen to be on the island.
My only criticism of the series was the final outcome where all mysteries were supposed to be solved. I believe it was a bit of a cop out. I won't say how it all came out so as not to spoil it for anyone who has not seen the series.
