I was very pleased to see another positive review of Alien Morning, this one in the San Jose Mercury News. And that same week the February issue of Locus magazine (a top industry magazine that keeps track of the science-fiction and fantasy fields) my Alien Morning novel made the Recommended Reading list for 2016. You can see the online edition of the magazine with that list here: http://www.locusmag.com/News/2017/01/2016-locus-recommended-reading-list/. There were hundreds of novels published, so to be one of the 23 to make that Recommended list was quite a thrill.
In that same issue of Locus the February Science Fiction bestseller list is posted for hardcover books, and Alien Morning made that list, as well, coming in 10th. That list comes from a number of sources including chain and independent bookstores. I'm very proud to have Alien Morning on the list.
The Mercury News reviewer talks about several science-fiction novels in the review. Of Alien Morning the reviewer says the novel is "the beginning of a series, and it promises to be a good one." And then discusses the novel and closes with this: "Put it all together, and “Alien Morning” is one of the better books I’ve read in recent months, and I’m genuinely looking forward to volumes two and three." Great! So am I.
