About the Author
I’m a dreamer, a poet, a lover, a husband, a father, and a man of God. I’m inspired by what I’ve seen and what I’ve read, but what I create with my words is where I dream. I pray for inspiration, and I enjoy what I have written just as I hope that others will as well. I’m a quiet man on the outside, but writing has become the playground of my soul to express itself in the grandeur of the created worlds and tales that I have been fortunate enough to dream of. The best way to find out more about me is to read my books. I write from the heart and I express both my shortcomings and my triumphs. I like to think of my writing as 'Reality Fiction'. I tell it like I see it. Life is short and the troubles many, but with faith in Jesus Christ all things have become possible to me. I may write 'make believe', but I strive to live out what I write. I enjoy my work and I hope you do too. Have a blessed time reading my imaginative thoughts.

Another genre busting book
This is Christian, action/adventure, science fiction, western, spiritual warfare, romance at its unique best. Guy says that this series is a result of the life-long love of Louis L'amour. I had no idea that Louis had written science fiction, but evidently that's true. This second novella in Guy's new series adds another wonderful intense Biblical romance to the mix. Fire Wind, book 1, is the only one of Guy's books without the wonderful mating of a strong man and woman of God--though like most of us, they were heathen sinners before the Lord got a hold of them. These are flawed, heathen sinners redeemed and transformed by the Lord.
It's not overtly Christian
This is simply because the Savior is not mentioned, as I recall. But the spiritual truths you live through the characters are real and edifying. Taran is a wonderful hero. As always, he's strong, handsome, likable, inspiring, of impeccable character, dangerously direct--you know all the wonderful stuff we hope to find in a hero. The book is gritty, but never gratuitous. He lets the reader fill in the nasty or delightful details in his or her mind.
I like to call Guy the Christian Clive Cussler, but he's much more than that. He's a unique, fresh, inspiring teller of tales the likes of which I always hope to find. You'll love his books. Since 2012 he's released four major series and a stand alone novel. If I am remembering right, there are 16 books released with several more promised during 2015.
Action packed and full of excitement. I would recommend this book to anyone who reads.
Imagining a fresh super-hero in this "let's copy what Marvel Comics did" world is worthy of support and Guy Stanton III gets mine.
If you’re a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter on Mars, you’ll enjoy reading Ice Wind by Guy S. Stanton III. In this book Stanton has Taran, like John Carter, a Civil War veteran who finds himself on a strange planet far from Earth, facing similar challenges and through his fighting ability and faith, dealing with seemingly insurmountable odds with a combination of humor and derring-do that is typical of the merger of Western and Science Fiction, but, unlike Burroughs, he includes a dose of religion in the story—in a very subtle way that does not at all detract from a nicely structured adventure yarn. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review.
The only negative aspect of this story is some unconventional grammar in the narrative that if cleaned up would elevate it to the top of its class.
Taran Collins has been chasing thief Zayri LaRarque across several worlds. Taran tries to hide his feelings for Zayri but can see them all the same. Taran discovers his lost ancestors in slavery and wants to help. Zayri can't believe that Taran is in her safe haven asking for her help. Taran seems to have forgotten that God has helped him. Will Taran acknowledge his need for help? Will Taran come back to God? Will Zayri end her stealing days? Your answers await you in Ice Wind.
This is an interesting series. I like how short the books are. I like the characters and story very much. The characters are believable, honest, and real. The story is compelling, honest, and real.
