Disclaimer! I'm the editor and publisher of "Dead or Alive - An Aston West Collection" by T.M. Hunter. That being said, I think it reasonable to assume that if I liked these stories well enough to publish them I should be able to talk about them!

An interesting collection of short stories about space traveler Aston West and his ship's computer. I feel that these stories are geared toward young people, but I enjoyed them. Free copy for review purposes.

T. M. Hunter has always had a fascination with travel to other worlds, earning a B. S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Kansas. His works have often been compared to the great pulp writers of the past, which made his multiple appearances in RAY GUN REVIVAL seem almost destined. He mainly writes in his Aston West universe, with three novels in the series (HEROES DIE YOUNG, FRIENDS IN ...more
