Blue is for Boys

After a weekend of fun and excess he can’t remember, Ravi wakes to a living nightmare that will change him forever. Soon he finds out where he is headed, and whether he likes it or not, who he is. Blue is for Boys is an outrageous science fiction short story with a new take on the battle of the sexes. It’s fun. It’s wild. It’s personal.

Book Buyer 5-star Review: Witty, brilliant and INCREDIBLY funny, Blue Is For Boys mixes down-to-earth attitudes, futuristic thinking and a whole load of comedy in a cocktail that anyone can love! And make it shaken, not stirred please.

I couldn’t put this book down once I picked it up. It’s hard not to downright burst out laughing while reading. The text is fresh and witty, but the characters are portrayed so realistically. I could easily put myself into Ravi’s shoes and imagine every step of his wild predicament.

This story is well worth reading for anyone who’s looking for a good time and a bigger laugh!

The Companion

This short story introduces Ax Weller, a space miner who has collected strange tales from his decades spent in the remote regions of deep space. “The Companion” is the tale of an explorer left for dead on a desolate moon and the unlikely relationship that helps him survive.

The Companion gets 5 stars: This is a great short story. It’s got a good pace, interesting characters and a surprise ending. I think it would have been great as one of the original Star Trek episodes. I really like Ax Weller. I’m ready for more of his tales!
