Overview

In the tradition of the old Ace Doubles (flip one book over to read the second title), here's the twenty-fifth Wildside Double:

UNDER THE EMBER STAR: A SCIENCE FANTASY NOVEL, by Charles Allen Gramlich. Ginn Hollis was fourteen when her father's mysterious death left her alone on the planet Kelmer. She's grown up since then. Kelmer is a harsh world, an old world: its people are ancient, its civilization long fallen and dimly dreaming under a brown dwarf sun the natives call the Ember Star. But now, long dormant forces are beginning to stir on Kelmer, forces that could destroy the planet forever...or bring it back to life. One being stands at the center of the turmoil. His origins are veiled, his destiny is unclear. Everyone wants a piece of him. Only Ginn Hollis can protect him from both sides--if she can save herself first.... Another grand science-fantasy adventure by a riveting storyteller!

THE BATTLE FOR EDEN: THE HUMAN-KNACKER WAR, BOOK THREE, by Mark E. Burgess. A spacefaring horde of carnivorous crab-like aliens known as the Knackers is advancing toward the human core worlds, decimating outlying systems as they go. When the invaders approach Eden, one of the most beautiful and populous planets in the Human Federation, it's up to SpaceForce to make a stand. In the skies over Eden, the battle rages--and one war-weary fighter, Major Simon Roy, falls to ground in his wounded ship. There he takes refuge with a brave family of farmers living peacefully in the idyllic countryside. When the aliens overwhelm the planet's defenses, the impromptu companions find themselves isolated and in peril. As they fight for survival, can Simon rediscover his humanity, and find a way to make his own stand against an enemy that has never been defeated? The exciting third novel in this continuing military SF series!

Meet the Author

I'm a veterinarian living in the Portland, Oregon area; my practice focuses on small exotic pets such as ferrets, rabbits, rodents, hedgehogs, sugar gliders, skunks, reptiles, etc. My household includes 2 daughters, Anna & Sarah, and my lovely wife, Denise, plus Molly the cat. My first published novel was "Dog Daze & Cat Naps— A Vet Student's Odyssey." This is a humorous story about the trials and tribulations of a young student as he makes his way through 4 years of veterinary school (based loosely on my own experiences). I'm also a science fiction author. My fun short story "Outside Looking In" is featured in the recent sci-fi anthology collection "Yondering". My publisher is Wildside Press (wildsidebooks.com), and my works are also available online via Barnes & Noble, Amazon, etc.

My new sci-fi novel "The Battle for Eden" is finally out! It's part of a double back-to-back paperback, paired with Charles Gramlich's novel "Under the Ember Star". This story is the 3rd in a series of books about the war between humans and Knackers (a crab-like carnivorous alien species). The novel is written as a stand-alone story, so reading the prior 2 books in the series is not necessary; you can understand and enjoy "Eden" on its own!

I'm currently working on another book in the Knacker series, which I hope to have finished later this year, entitled "Dark Angels."You can read free samples of all my works on my Facebook site, look me up as "Authorvet", and click "Notes" near the top of the page, for samples of each story! If you like what you see, then feel free to share the pages with your friends!

    This review is for Under the Ember Star (one half of this back-to-back paperback double); it is also available via e-book as a stand alone novel. Charles Gramlich is an accomplished author, and this tale fully demonstrates his story-telling ability. The strong female lead character, Ginn Hollis, is an orphaned human who has grown up on a distant colony world; part of the population is human, and part is a resident alien species, ancient and mysterious. The planet itself is old, full of brooding mystery as its sun slowly cools in the twilight of its life. Ginn must take on the job of guiding an alien client through the wilds of this world, overcoming obstacles both human and inhuman to fulfill their quest. Gramlich's story moves with pace, but combines the action with strong character development, set in a fleshed-out world that has depth and solidity, making the reader feel like this is a real place with real people and problems. The feel of the book reminds me a bit of Leigh Brackett's work, and she is one of my favorite authors.
    Great story; I highly recommend it.
