New Book from Brad Taylor

All Necessary Force, by Brad Taylor is coming out on January 17.

Look for it. Pike Logan, the main character, spent some time in 3/75. The first book, One Rough Man was a very good read.

Can't wait for the follow up.

Never heard of this author before. It sounds like a good series. I'll have to get the first book from the library.

Loved the first one. Definitely snapping up the second. The combination of writing talent and experience makes for a great read.

I like his books. Didn't realize he had a new one coming out. I usually check all new releases for my favorite authors.

Thanks for posting this.

Thanks. Would be nice if I could get him to sign my books. Add to my collection. Got about 3,000 hardback books. A lot are 1st eds & signed. My most cherished ones are my Tolkiens. "Hobbit" & LOTR trilogy, signed 1st ed George Unwin London. Museum archived & in safety deposit drawer cuz if someone put their fingers on them I'd shoot them. Also, have signed 1st ed C.S. Lewis space trilogy.

Bought the Tolkiens before LOTR movie was announced. Husband came home & screamed "you paid what for some books!" Now they are insured & worth about 8 times what I paid for them. Now he says, "Yeah that was a good investment".

Investment?? I ain't selling those books.

If you don't want them sold at all make sure you put that down in writing in a will. Later generations may be more concerned with getting multiple thousands for 4 books.

Once I'm dead don't care about them but if myself and my husband passed at the same time I could see some folks in my family fighting over stuff but we have wills.

Wills aren't legally binding in the sense that if it states you can't sell something, you can't sell it, are they?

Got my books signed. They were great though I was ready to wring the female character's neck (Jennifer). Too whiny and judgemental. If he writes a 3rd book (hope he does) he needs to make sure Jennifer either gets into the job or stays at home and shuts up.

Taylor is a damn nice guy considering he could probably kill me just by looking at me.

Just that concept, without any pictures, would probably count as porn for a lot of dudes.
