Kai Wai Cheah's NO GODS, ONLY DAIMONS is like an explosive-tipped bullet of fantastic action.

Gloomhaven is dope.

Thanks for the pointer on Legends of Callasia. After playing through the first tutorial map, it hits the spot and I have to wonder if you designed it.

It's more strategic than many other build-and-conquer games and reminds me favorably of a number of board and tabletop games I've enjoyed. I'm curious to see how carries through to the skirmishes and campaigns.

And, any game that lets me bounce between playing it on my computer and mobile gets bonus points.

No Declan Finn?

I'm proud of my first novel, "Another Girl, Another Planet" and it's been getting excellent reviews: It has 4.7 out of five stars on Amazon.

Matt Mitrovich wrote in Amazing Stories:

"I always enjoy alternate takes on the Space Race, and a timeline where there was greater interest in space exploration was certainly fun to look at... If you are curious at all about one way humans might have flown farther than the Moon, then you might want to pick up Lou Antonelli’s Another Girl, Another Planet."

"Good Lord, Lou Antonelli did something I thought was impossible. He made me like an alternative history story, and usually I hate those... Larry Niven blurbed the book. He loved it, and said it was great ideas, well told. He was right."

If you are nominating in the Alternate History category, I'd appreciate your support.
