*A junction erupts between the worlds in Settler, Oregon, a rift from which horrors attack our world. The Rifters defend us.
To trust unquestioningly is the first lesson Daelin Long must learn as the newest Initiate of the Rifters.
Her first day is a disaster. She stands on a deserted street in a town smaller than a city district, courting killer rocks from another world with her ancestor from the Revolutionary War. Normal no longer exists.
While she struggles, Earl Blacke grapples with atoning for his past ill deeds, running far and fast from Settler, Oregon. The Shaman of the Desert promises him redemption, and an old mine puts the possibility of a gold strike in his grasp. His luck has changed for the better, but he can’t have both.
My memories of the drive-in are what inspires my love of hokey, cheesy movies. Youthful years spent sitting in the backseat of a car with my friends, our bare feet over the front seat, a paper grocery sack filled with candy and junk food, frosty sodas and beers in a cooler, and a movie we didn’t care about on the screen. The night was more about laughing, making ourselves sick on sugar, and talking.
The sillier the movie, the more fun we had. That’s why I still love watching that genre of movie. My husband is a good sport and often watches them with me. Basically, we watch them so you don’t have to. First up, Assassin!
1986, a made for TV movie, starring Robert Conrad. A retired agent from an Intelligence Agency is contacted by the Agency in order to stop an ultra-secret robot who is killing some government officials.
This movie was on the same disc as THE CRATER LAKE MONSTER. Its feel ala The Six Million Dollar Man caught our attention, so we watched.
Was it great? No, but we had fun watching it thinking of bionic people. The plot really lags for a bit before the big finale, but overall it was good-bad. Be on the look out for the creepy shoulder touch. What? Husband Unit is still laughing. You’ll have to watch.
I give this a ONE BEER rating. One is enough to have fun watching the ASSASSIN.
State Highway 58 is one of my favorite roads to explore in Oregon. It has lots of big, old trees and splendid sights. One of the gems is McCredie Hot Springs along Salt Creek.
There used to be a resort hotel there that became a baseball camp and then a bordello. It burned down in 1958, and there’s litte sign it was ever there. The hot springs are still there, however, the views are stunning.
If you decide to try the hot springs, they can be very hot, so be careful. And, clothing is optional.
The galaxy beyond the Backworlds is rife with trouble. The desperate search to save a friend ends in the discovery of an unstoppable enemy.
This boxed set contains books 4, 5, and 6 in the Backworld series: Beyond the Edge, Worlds on Edge, and Precipice.
Beyond the Edge
Some truths are better left unfound.
For two years, Lepsi has been missing. A haunted spaceship has a message from him. Maybe Lepsi isn’t dead. Craze and Captain Talos travel to uncharted worlds, searching a region of the galaxy beyond the Backworlds. Out there, they stumble upon a terrible truth.
Worlds on Edge
Home is worth the fight.
War is coming. A horde of merciless aliens poise just beyond the Edge. Racing ahead of the apocalypse, Craze rushes to warn his people and plan a defense. Only, he can’t go home. Banned from Pardeep Station, he must wage another war to save his home.
Salvation comes at a price.
A new enemy wants to destroy the galaxy. The Fo’wo’s want another war.
Annihilation is coming to the Backworlds, and Craze’s option to prevent the genocide of his people is a nightmare. The best chance for survival is to overcome a century of hate and forge an alliance with the Fo’wo’s. If he succeeds, Craze will be the most hated man in the galaxy.
