Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

“Opening The X-Files” is Now Available on Amazon Kindle and Google Books!

Frequently cited on my Year of Bests series, blogger and now author Darren Mooney has just released a compendium of his thoughts on the seminal TV series of the ’90s — The X-Files.

Hi guys!

Just a quick update to let you know that my new book, Opening The X-Files: A Critical History of the Original Series, is now available as an eBook from Amazon and Google Books. Links available below.

There will also be a print book available, and that will be released in a few weeks. But if you absolutely, positively have to read it now, you can pick it up for your eReader of choice at that links below.

        Right now, I’m finishing the last of the 3 book “Complete Hammer’s Slammers” series of short stories, novellas and novels by Vietnam veteran, David Drake.

        A compelling premise set in the future where a mercenary armor unit equipped with hover tanks and Armored Personnel Carries fight proxy wars for top dollars from aggrieved settlers.

        Many similarities to the TO&E of The Dark Horse Cavalry, its soldiers, battles and skirmishes fought in that war so long ago.

          Cool! Thanks for the recommendations, Kevin. We’ve similar tastes with sci-fi and military history. Finished the Bobiverse SF trilogy of sentient spacecraft by Dennis E. Taylor and am currently engrossed with Mark Bowen’s HUE 1968.
