About this author

As a security contractor, government civilian and military officer, Myke Cole’s career has run the gamut from Counterterrorism to Cyber Warfare to Federal Law Enforcement. He’s done three tours in Iraq and was recalled to serve during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. All that conflict can wear a guy out. Thank goodness for fantasy novels, comic books, late night games of Dungeons and Dragons and lots of angst fueled writing.


The leaves are turning, the pigeons are fluffing up their feathers, and the weather is backpedaling faster than a congressman caught red-handed in an airport bathroom.


That can only mean one thing folks: autumn is upon us.


The crisp bite to the air, the smell of wood-burning fires, the armorerissuing pumpkin-spiced rounds for our sidearms, autumn is my favorite season. Now, you know me, I work a...

I am one of the fortunate few who has gotten to read the manuscript pre-publication. I will not say anything other than that Brett continues to get better with each book, and you are all in for a treat. The Skull Throne is his best work yet.

Enormously disappointing. While I don't doubt Stoye's research or academic rigor, his prose styling is downright obfuscating. Writers of historical monographs still have an obligation to paint a picture for the reader, and Stoye seems to almost delib...more

There are fewer events more contentious in US history than the Little Bighorn, and no character more in dispute than that of Custer. With A Terrible Glory, Donovan declines to take a side, rooting his narrative in the primary sources and sticking (as...more

1453 covers a contentious moment in the history of the struggle between East and West. There was a lot of potential for partisan campaigning, character-slander and historical sleight-of-hand. Crowley neatly avoids these pitfalls, presenting a balance...more

I only ever blurb books that are so good, I wish I'd written them.

I blurbed this one.

“Fear isn’t the mind killer. It is fathoms deep and miles wide, more intri­cate than the pat­tern on a fine Per­sian rug. I will not “master my fear.” I am a thinking man who knows it’s not a thing that could ever be mas­tered. I will instead seek to under­stand it, to embrace it, to know how it lifts me up and how it holds me back.”

Michael Hey Myke,

Thanks for the add. Love the books. Just finished Fortress Frontier the other day and I have to say you completely outdid yourself. Amazing from start to finish. Keep up the great work!


Zachary Caldwell When I heard about control point, I thought "how could I possibly pass this up?" and thank god I didn't, after finishing it I immediately recommended it to everyone I know, awesome book Myke, can't wait for Fortress Frontier, which I must say has some pretty awesome cover art.
