Buy on Amazon now!

Successful science fiction author Peter Grant has branched out in a new diretion. In BRINGS THE LIGHTNING, he has revived the classic Western novel. A renaissance man of a wide range of experience not unlike Louis L'Amour, Grant has been a man of war and a man of God, a soldier, a pastor, and a prison chaplain. His writing reflects his experience of Man's capacity for both good and evil, but never without a sense of optimism about Man's ability to learn from his mistakes.

Excerpt:

When the Civil War ends, where can a former Confederate soldier go to escape the long memories of neighbors who supported the winning side? Where can Johnny Reb go when he can't go home? 

He can go out West, where the land is hard, where there is danger on every side, and where no one cares for whom you fought – only how well you can do it. 

Walt Ames, a former cavalryman with the First Virginia, is headed West with little more than a rifle, a revolver, and a pocket full of looted Yankee gold. But in his way stand bushwhackers, bluecoats, con men, and the ever-restless Indians. And perhaps most dangerous of all, even more dangerous than the cruel and unforgiving land, is the temptation of the woman whose face he can't forget. 

When you can’t go home again – go West!

The ebook is now live.

Paper will be available, hopefully within a month.

It is kind of you to come by and say so. But really, aren't there things you would rather do? Look at the trees? Watch the birds? Read a good book, perhaps one that is not published by a publishing house you object to.

The whole universe had been made for your delight.

Hatred is not part of it.

I understand that Peter Grant is nowhere as talented as, say, Brian Aldiss or John Brunner or Ian Watson.

But I still want him to know that associating with someone as vile as Castalia's owners is going to cost him many a reader.

You won't know how talented Peter is unless you read him. He has many non Castalia House books.

He can't be as good as M. John Harrison or Catherynne Valente or he wouldn't need to publish with Castalia House.

He sells very well on his own.

I have never heard of M. John Harrison or Catherynne Valente.

Ignorant child, whose works are ephemera and folly.

If you have actually read my works, in order to judge them as folly, I am quite pleased that you took the time.

If not, and in the case of Peter Grant, it is seldom wise to judge works we haven't read. That kind of hubris often comes back to bite us.

I wonder if any of the people boycotting Castalia drive Volkswagens.
