R.I.P. Victor Milan
Minimize

I am saddened to report that on Tuesday, February 13 2018 frequent James Axler author Victor Milan passed away. He had been ill for the past several months. Here is the message sent by his dear friend Patricia Rogers:

Hi All,

I have very sad news.

Victor passed at 430pm this afternoon of Myeloma complicated by pneumonia.

I was with him holding his hand. Spent the afternoon telling him how much he was loved.

It was a gentle passing.

During his career, Victor authored fifteen Deathlands titles, seven Outlanders titles, plus dozens of others under a variety of pen names as well as his own. Most recently he published his Dinosaur Lords trilogy with TOR books. He has also been a frequent contributor to George R. R. Martin's Wild Cards series of anthology books.

I had the privilege of meeting him in person a few years ago when he invited me to the book launch party for the first Dinosaur Lords novel. He and my wife had many lovely conversations about birding. I always found him to be a kind and generous man, and he will be very much missed.

New Book by Chuck Rogers
Minimize
If you are (were?) a Deathlands fan, then you probably already know the name Chuck Rogers. Author of three of the most highly-regarded books in the series (Blood Harvest, Hell Road Warriors, and Blood Red Tide), he also very well liked among the Mack Bolan crowd from his nearly forty entries in those series.

Chuck has just released his first novel under his own name, and it is fantasatic. Heroes Road is an epic fantasy adventure featuring the same kind of action and strong characters that made his Axler and Bolan books stand out. It is available now on Amazon for the Kindle, check it out at:

Heroes Road: Complete Edition - $5.99

Or, if you want to buy it in pieces it is available broken up into three volumes:

Heroes Road: Book 1 - $0.99
Heroes Road: Book 2 - $1.99
Heroes Road: Book 3 - $2.99

I had the good fortune to read an early draft about two years ago, and it was great then. The final spit and polish on it for this release has turned it into a true classic.

Do yourself a favor, and check it out. This one is highly recommended. And if you do read it, please do Chuck the favor of leaving a review for it at Amazon. It's a small thing, but it really helps.

James Axler Lives!

Usually I do a special Christmas image each year, but this year I felt more than a little sad and nostalgic about James Axler and the fate of Gold Eagle. Here, then, is a mega-image showing the cover of every single James Axler title ever released, in chronological order by publication date. If you view the image full sized you will see year markers as well. I also created a word cloud out of the names of every author who has written under the Axler house name. The more Axler books written, the larger their name. 

In building these, I spent several days looking over each title. I know it's just a stupid men's action series, but as I looked at the covers each one brought back specific memories of things that were going on in my life at the time. Some happy, some sad, but all very real markers and mileposts for me over these past thirty years. I have only ever been involved around the periphery, but James Axler has been a big part of my life for more than two decades now. Running this website has allowed me to meet, and in many cases become friends with, several working authors. I count myself as very fortunate, and I do not believe that this journey has ended.

Thank you to everyone who has visited this website over the years. Happy Holidays to you and yours, I hope you have found at least a little joy this holiday season. All the best, from my family to yours.

 - Ron

I'm interested in giving these a try. Sounds more like "radio plays" in the old BBC style than "audiobooks", which I think is a really cool idea. But ...
