More About the Author

"Tom Bielawski is a bright light in today's dark sea of new writers. His writing gives me hope for the next generation of dreamers. I highly recommend both him and his works." - NYT Bestselling author, Tracy Hickman.

"Tom is a great literary voice in a sea of indies." -Best selling independent author, MR Mathias

Veteran Marine, lawman, and graduate of NYT Bestselling author Tracy Hickman's online workshop called the "Scribe's Forge."

I've always had a deep love of speculative fiction, particularly epic fantasy and science fiction adventures. I am so humbled and grateful for the chance to appear on your bookshelf, that I'm going to share a little bit of what you might find on mine. I grew up playing Dungeons and Dragons and reading Tracy Hickman, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Lloyd Alexander, and Ann McCaffrey. Later I dug in to Robert Jordan, R.A Salvatore, M.R. Mathias, John Locke, Orson Scott Card, Robert Aspirin, Isaac Asimov, Joseph Lallo, and Brian Rathbone.

Some of my favorite works are The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Wheel of Time, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Ender's Game series. Though I've not read the books, I'm a huge fan of the Star Wars and Star Trek movie series'. I am also partial to reading Clive Cussler, CJ Box, Brad Thor, and Tom Clancy.

My future projects include a contemporary thriller series in the style of Bourne and Bond, a series of biographies of not-so-well known or loved (but influential nonetheless) Americans for children, a brand new fantasy series, 18th Century American Frontier fiction, and a series of Christian themed short stories.

How am I going to get all that done? Some of it already is. Stay tuned and thank you for taking the time to explore the wild imaginings. I'm a Dragon Highlord in my own mind!

This is a hot, quick moving space adventure.

The swagger of John Wayne behind a ship-flying Marshall - out for justice at any price. It has the legit feel of the Old West without being sappy or feeling forced.

Although the entire story line and character set is vastly different, it has the feeling of Firefly - the Sci Fi series, and I think this would make just as good a TV series; and we are really about due for a new space series.

There is room to go both into the past and into the future with these characters - so I hope there are more installments ....

I look forward to a whole series of Heck Thomas ...

Short but action packed. I can't wait for more. My entire family has been reading since I turned them on to the book.

Very engaging story of good guys and bad guys in the new old west. The book is short but does a good job of hooking the reader on the plot and characters and leaves you wanting more!

I enjoyed the first Heck Thomas book. I am looking forward to more Heck Thomas adventures. For $0.99, it is easy enough to give it a chance. You will not be disappointed.

From the very start The Centaurus Legacy caught my attention, sucking me into the well written science novel that added elements of the Old West to create a uniquely entertaining story. Tom Bielawski brings a talent for imaginative storytelling t the forefront as he weaves a tale about a lawman who finds himself on the wrong side of the law; facing countless enemies and an uphill battle as a mafioso frames him for some truly heinous crimes, Marshal Heck Thomas must right the wrongs done to him when his life and many others hangs in the balance. The author skillfully winds the reader up with suspenseful action, emotionally charged drama, twisty mysteries and a clear aim to entertain the reader. From start to finish this was fun, exciting, imaginative and well worth the read.

Enjoyed it. There are some grammar/typos but not enough to detract from the story. Fun sci-fi novel, with Marshall Heck Thomas going from one difficulty to another. He encounters space pirates, renegades, and corrupt officials and deals with each in an interesting way. It will be fun to see where he goes from here! I'd recommend it to those who enjoy sci-fi with a twist of the Old West!

It's ok. An enjoyable read. It is, and it says so, an introduction to the Heck Thomas universe.

Although I did not find it personally pleasing, there is sure to be an audience for this kind of "cowboy/future/lawman" story. It draws, a lot, on"history" which, again, May be attractive to some readers.

To pass the time, is OK. Not my cup of tea.

While this is an OK read,... it's not really "book length". This and "book 2" probably should have been published as one book. This seems to be a common tactic among E-Book authors these days. I guess some think they make more money this way. The other tactic they use are "episodes" done on a weekly, monthly basis. Publish the BOOK ! I won't pay for anything else ! !
