NIGHTWATCH, Book 5
Meet Charlese Tilbrenner, corn-fed romantic from the Kansas plains. She's always wanted something greater in life, something exciting, something filled with adventure. That's why she ran off to join the Galactic Marines after the Grays, those little, big-headed aliens you see on all the Roswell posters, apologized to Earth for a millennium of abductions and anal probes. The Marines didn't work out. Now Charlese has jumped to what she hopes will be a celebrated career as a journalist with Galactic Geographic, the universe's premier news, lifestyle, and feature magazine. You might imagine that Charlese is in for a surprise, but you'd be wrong. She's in for several. From the slums and gated communities of Mars to the ice-bound hell of Jupiter's Europa to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, Charlese and her mentor Bernie Oldman will bring you the greatest stories of the stars, from restaurant reviews, farm reports, and fish stories to organized crime, terrorism, and war. A humorous look at science fiction, fantasy, and romance, Galactic Geographic is the world's first Military Sci-fi Romantic Comedy Satirical Travelogue. Yep, that's our story and we're stickin' to it. Explore the stars. Explore popular culture. Explore the painful, knotted relationships between men and women. That's the universe of Galactic Geographic, asking the question, "What's in YOUR world?"
