In this speculative fiction alternate history novel, what-if Ronald Reagan became President in 1976 instead and the Space Race turned out differently?

Politics is rarely an ingredient for a good alternate history. While most authors will attempt to lessen the impact of their own political beliefs on the story, those who do not will often find that their story suffers for it. New Frontier by Cliff Ball is no exception.

The POD for this world is Robert Kennedy being convicted of murdering Marilyn Monroe. Afterwards, John Kennedy's two terms, Barry Goldwater's two terms and several prominent Democrat politicians either killed off or transformed in
I really enjoyed New Frontier. Since this is the first novel in the series, its mostly the backstory, at least it seems that way to me. The prologue was interesting, and I didn't think it fit with the whole novel, but I read that the author is going to explain it in the second novel. I think something about the interstellar space travelers who leave at the end of the novel somehow end up back in time, and decide to change the 60's. The tech in the novel advances quickly, kind of like how we went ...more
I found this novel interesting, and I enjoy reading this author's novels. The prologue hooked me, which I've learned will be put into greater detail in the second book when it comes out. I found it interesting how the author weaved the alternate history: from Reagan becoming President, which affects what we do with NASA and the Space Race to the Iran Hostage Affair to having bases on the Moon and Mars. The Soviets try to out-do the Americans, and apparently the Americans will right the problem i ...more
This was an interesting book. The story moves quickly. The author focuses on the story, so there isn't a whole lot of character development. It will be interesting to see how the second book turns out. I did enjoy reading it though.

Time Travel: New Frontier Series by Cliff Ball 5 44 Sep 23, 2014 04:27PM  
I'm a Christian first and foremost. My novels are written from my worldview, so they have either Christian or Conservative themes in them. I live in D/FW, have 2 BA's and Technical Writing Certificate from University of North Texas. I won 3rd in a short story contest for a magazine through my high school Creative Writing class. I've been independently published since 2008.

I'm a fan of a bunch of
