Space Pirate Charlie by Scott  Baron
"The title of this one feels like it would have been more appropriate as the header for the second arc of the first book as honestly there is very little pirate related stuff in it and it's really just a mention of his past and some re-connections. I " Read more of this review »

Bad Luck Charlie by Scott  Baron
"Unusual but a good read

I had a bit of a hard time mentally adjusting to a blend of fantasy and sci-fi. I’m a purist by nature, so I don’t like my genres mixed. I found myself getting drawn in to the story, regardless of my usual biases. " Read more of this review »
Daisy's War by Scott  Baron
"Fantastic finish to a great series

Well developed characters in a story that will surprise you, in the best way on a regular basis. For fans of space opera and science fiction in general."
