  • Mel Odom, Apocalypse Crucible.  Religious thriller, the second in the Left Behind: Apocalypse series, based on the Left Behind series.  This particular series is told from a military point of view.  Christian fiction is not my usual cup of tea, but, hey, it's Mel Odom!

  • Tim Tresslar, Don Pendleton's Stony Man #85:  Hell Dawn.  Men's action adventure.


  1. I still enjoy reading Don Pendleton's The Executioner series as well as Able Team and Phoenix Force. I'm trying get hold of the 30-odd novels written by Pendleton himself. Not an easy task. I have never read the Stony Man series.

  2. I gave up on the Executioner novels years back when I bought a couple written by Peter Leslie and, when I read them, realized he'd rewritten twenty year old Man From U.N.C.L.E. novels. Two of his I know he did, Maybe others, but I stopped buying them after that.
