"This is one of the best Sci-Fi series I've ever read (and I've read a few). But what I really love is the feel of authenticity to the military activities in the books. I'm a retired Army officer with over 20 years of service, six of which were spent with 160th SOG (Nightstalkers). Having done my time in the Spec Ops world I know how it looks and feels, and this series captures the feel. Thanks for bringing to life a world worth reading about." Reader Scott W.
About the Author
Owen R. O’Neil is a physicist, a writer, an amateur historian and the descendant of a long line of engineers. After three years working for the US Navy as a missile systems engineer, he became a member of the intelligence community and spent the rest of his career there. One of the last generation of Cold Warriors, he worked on topics as diverse as satellites, infrared semiconductors, telecommunications and C4ISR. He is an expert on technology projection and threat assessment, and did groundbreaking work on IW/IO before it was cool.
These days he writes, exercises a passion for photography he inherited from his father, and indulges in his two principal vices: cooking unhealthy food and ferreting out exceptional but underappreciated wines. He lives on nine rural acres in northern California where, when not engaged in the foregoing, he listens to his tenants (bullfrogs and coyotes) and watches over his infant vineyard.
