Meet the Author

International bestselling authors and screenwriters Allan Cole and the late Chris Bunch were collaborators for nearly twenty years. Together, and separately, they published over forty novels and sold more than 150 TV and movie screenplays. Their most noteworthy collaboration produced the eight-book Sten series, hailed as "landmark science fiction" by Publishers Weekly, among others. Especially notable were their novels about America's wars. This book - A Reckoning For Kings - is considered by many critics to be one of the finest novels written about the Vietnam War. And it is the first - and only - book of its kind to view the war from both sides: American and Vietnamese. The others books in their historical military series include, A Daughter Of Liberty, The Wars Of The Shannons and Freedom Bird.
