More About the Author

Born and raised in L.A., it didn't take much to convince my wife and I to leave the smog, traffic and dead bolts of Southern California and head for a new life in The Big Sky Country -- Montana.

We were a little concerned when we first arrived in Billings and saw a pickup with a rifle in the back window and a bumper sticker that read ...


Keep Montana Beautiful
Shoot an Out-of-Stater

Fortunately we haven't had to use our finely honed bullet-dodging skills. Instead we found Montana to be filled with great people and awesome scenery.

Montana has been and continues to be a great adventure for us. God has blessed us in many ways -- six beautiful children and many wonderful friends. It's also a great place to be a writer.

But I don't recommend it for anyone else. Stay where you are in your concrete jungles. Suck in that air that you can see before you breathe it. Buy deadbolts for your doors. Maybe even pick up a guard dog.

Remember, if you come up here, I know a guy in Billings ...

I'll keep reading, but characters/setting are marginally developed. Christian proselytizing seems to be an unsubtle undercurrent. Book does get more engaging (relatively) as it progresses.

The first two installments really grabbed me. Story was imaginative, surprising; the characters seemed morally ambiguous and interesting. Less so as the story continued. By the end the story was predictable and the characters seemed one dimensional. It almost felt like there was a rush to wrap everything up in a simple resolution. Too bad.....

I have to start by saying that I'm very picky when it comes to reading. And usually Sci-Fi stories are not books I usually read. But after getting the chance to read the first part of this book. I have to say it may become one of my favorites.

The book caught my attention from the very beginning. The main character Matthew Wallace has been through so much in his life. He has suffered through loss and in his adult life is trying to fight for his wife's illness and find her help to keep her alive. While all the while trying to keep peace with the humans and the warriors of the planet Altair.

There are so many things I could say about this book, but I don't think there's enough space to write it. I can't wait for the rest of this series!!!!!

The child of missionaries, Matthew Wallace is no stranger to new worlds across the universe. However, his view of new civilizations is somewhat marred when he witnesses the killing of his parents at the hand of the Ananke tribe.

From that tender age of six, he lives with families in the Marshal's Service. So naturally he becomes a Marshal. But, he hasn't forgotten that fateful day. Matt's anger at the Ananke people has grown into pure hatred. Unfortunately, his vow not to return to the 'Healing Planet' is pushed aside when his wife is stricken with cancer. Making the long journey back to where he lost his parents is difficult for Matt but the want to cure his wife is greater.

Upholding the Marshal law of punishment and justice for everyone regardless of money, human or not has made Matt's reputation precede him. When he arrives on Altair, the doctor in charge of the medical unit which carries out the life-saving treatment, and the senior deputy marshal meet him. However, the senior deputy feels slighted that he wasn't made marshal and shows his dislike of Matt. Taking it in his stride, Matt shows him and the other marshal's whose in charge. Whilst his wife receives the much needed treatment, his daughter goes exploring, closely followed by the family robot called Roy and Matt makes it known how he expects the marshal service to be run.

Unbeknownst to the new marshal of Altair, there are things taking place that have a sinister air about them. Will Matt find out what they are? Are the cures the doctor offers truly legitimate and what are the Ananke people plotting?

From the unassuming opening pages that quickly turns to a horrific incident, Morey's science-fiction series is compelling from the get go.

This was my first Kindle serial and a great introduction to this author. I enjoyed the story which was a bit of a mix of Avatar, Native American Indians and even the Holocaust. The book isn't a downer though and it was a delight to read. Very fast paced with lots of action and suspense.

I just finished the first installment of this serial & I like it. No spoilers but there's something sinister going on in Dr. Barkman's research & treatment theatre. Now to the characters. I really love Roy. Also Kari & Lydia were enjoyable & I think it'll be interesting to see how their relationship plays out. Matt & Lewis are definitely going to take a bit for the bromance to get going but I like Matt's evenness to Lewis's unease. And Sherrie, our teen who is missing a boy she liked, just got her mother back & is looking for a friend, will probably be stirring things up too. Though, I do want her to be nicer to Roy. Poor Roy. This all has the makings of good tension, so I look forward to reading the next.

I'll update the installments as I go along.

It's got some genuinely innovative and imaginative aspects... I was intrigued.
Overall the story moved pretty good, the only problem is some of the climactic moments seemed to wrap up too fast and not with the same care given the rest of the story.
BUT... like I said, overall it moved along and keeps your interest and is a good read. I'll look forward to more from this author.

Writing a serial is hard, there's no doubt about that. Getting a cohesive story turned in on time in a limited time-frame is a monumental task... and for that achievement I do applaud this book. Clint Morey created an interesting world with unique characters. The problem is, as the story winds to a conclusion, there are multiple instances of characters "Doing Something" important to the story outside of the printed words. E.g. a tiny robot gets on the underside of a transport... How it was done... when it was done.. not addressed.

I have little doubt that such jumps are entirely a fault of the format; it takes far less time to state that something was done... than to write out the actions as those actions progress. I wouldn't mind seeing this story re-addressed and expanded upon with those gaps filled in.

Another side effect of the format is that lots of questions are posed about the cultures and reality of many of the players involved. Case in point: "The Visitors." Why are they so important? Why does everybody fear them? What exactly is the Council? Why does the Council matter? Many of the questions ultimately go unanswered... which left me with a hollow feeling. There is a large difference between withholding information for the sake of creating mystery or leaving options open; and quite another between leaving questions of motivations completely un-addressed. This, separation of "Information" and "Answer" is highlighted in one of the final standoffs. To try and keep this spoiler free, a villain in the book connects getting caught for one hostile and illegal action... as being caught for a completely different and separate illegal action... and ties it together with a comment about fear and ignorance preventing scientific advances. If that actually sounds confusing...

Discuss Episode One of "The Outer Rims"
So far so good. I like my SF to resemble the movies of 1950-1960s, original star trek and lost in space. As I read first episode, I had that feeling. Not much of a cliffhanger at the break, but I am intrigued by the plot so far. Interesting use of missionaries and I wonder if faith will play a... Read More

Certainly left everyone sitting in a high level of this suspense. Nice development of Roy as a character but the other characters could use a little work. I don't feel any particular affinity for any of them.

Last episode, D. Beirne commented on the issue of the ethics of the transplants. Interesting that in this newest episode, Matt is dealing with the ethics of his position. His wife is being cured by this doctor (though really by Kari), but the doctor is also a murderer. I like the way he deals... Read More
