Len Robertson | 39 comments I've been open to reviewing other peoples' work, but currently I'm full up because I'm readying my table at Chicago Comicon in the artists and writers section. One of the items I will be passing out will be bookmarks with the Titles and brief synopses of each of the two I'm marketing now.

Copernican Journey is the first of the two. It's taken me 25 years to write and it's closer to where our planet will be in 2046 than just about everything else on the market.

This is the bookmark synopsis:

An undeclared war exists between the People of the Book who reject human expansion outward, fearing hostile Alien influences, and the Neo Darwinists, who claim the Cosmos as theirs and block PoB emigration to Mars. Into this conflict step Dr. Jennifer Colbert, biological scientist, and Boone Dalton, a surgically altered race driver. Boone and Jennifer experience an inadvertent blood exchange following an assassination attempt that proves to be key to their surviving repeated android ambushes and a terrible Martian pandemic. Although mismatched, Boone and Jennifer work together and become the first humans robust enough to colonize the Cosmos.

Questing for Dragons is my second novel and it's a fun medieval fantasy that took me three weeks to write. I have no doubt that its's one of the better three week to write novels currently on the market.

This is the bookmarks synopsis of Questing:

To escape marrying decrepit Igor, Pen herds the village hogs. Unaware of her identity, George, the Silver Knight, hires Pen to guide him in his quest to find the Dragon Lord. In short order, Emperor Aethelred wants her wed, the witch Lady Dazzle wants her dead, and Lord Grim wants her in his bed. With those three hot on her heels, a reward of 10,000 ducats on her head, and George still blissfully clueless, Pen must navigate their small party past three reputedly impassable obstacles to the Dragonslair Mountains. Her only allies are a duplicitous wizard and a young unnamed Minotaur.
