Readers Guide: To His Fiction, Nonfiction, Author’s Notes and More

Cool Gus and I welcome you to this Reader’s Guide. We put this together so that you can peruse all my titles, see books in series orders, and have convenient links to the platforms the books are available on.

Books are listed in order in their series with a brief note from me on each book. Connections between books and series are explained, along with links where the books can be found—just click on the appropriate symbol. For the Audible symbol, you’re taken to the Amazon Audible Page, but you can also find those titles directly on Audible.

Several books are free so you can get a feel: Eyes of the Hammer; West Point to Mexico; and Ides of March. For those who like audiobooks, there are free audio short stories. There are also free Time Patrol short stories.

Books that have only Amazon and Audible links are enrolled in Kindle Unlimited and can be borrowed on Amazon. If you’re enrolled in Amazon Prime you can also borrow those books.
