About this author

Steven L. Kent is the author of four Military Science Fiction novels and The Ultimate History of Video Games.

Born in California and raised in Hawaii, Kent served as a missionary for the LDS Church between the years of 1979 and 1981. During that time, he worked as a Spanish-speaking missionary serving migrant farm workers in southern Idaho.

While Kent has a Bachelor’s degree in journalism and a Master’s degree in communications from Brigham Young University, he claims that his most important education came from life.

He learned important lessons from working with farm laborers in Idaho. Later, from 1986 through 1988, Kent worked as a telemarketer selling TV Guide and Inc. Magazine. His years on the phone helped him develop an ear for dialog.

"The author stated this may be the last book in the series. I hope not as it has been enjoyable reading these books. I have enjoyed each book in this series and would definitely like to see more! "
The Clone Redemption by Steven L. Kent
"This book was better! The main character, Wayson Harris, is a 3-star General now in the Enlisted Man's Empire but he doesn't believe they can fight both the Earth Unified Authority (UA) and the alien attackers know as the Avatari. The Avatari have..." Read more of this review »

"I can't help myself, these books are like candy and I can't stop eating. This was a great finale to the Wayson series and as the author says, "there could be more in this universe, but not with Wayson as the central character."

“The old sailors who traveled Earth's seas were said to have loved the ocean. The great captains said they were married to the sea or called the sea their mistress. Modern sailors held no such fantasies about outer space. Space did not love or hate, it simply killed anything it touched.”

“The flipper bat was quite a breakthrough because it gave the player a true means of exercising and developing skill. You could aim at targets now, rather than in the old days when you popped the ball up and just shook the shit out of the table and hoped that it went in the right hole or hit the right thing. The use of the flipper bat is probably the greatest breakthrough ever in pinball. —Eddie”

“I always thought having a ring doctor at a boxing match was like having a preacher in a whore house. If a fighter is worried about his health, he’s obviously chosen the wrong profession.”
Steven L. Kent, Long Live the Champion

“After I graduated from Harvard, I enrolled in the school of journalism at Columbia University. I did that for my dad. He wanted his son to be a journalist. I disappointed him. I wrote about sports instead.”
Steven L. Kent, Long Live the Champion

“My father was a policeman who fought in World War II. When he talked about 'journalists,' he meant Ernie Pyle. As far as he was concerned, journalists had hair on their chests and wrote about wars.”
