Humorous Sci-fi Adventure – NASA’s 1st Mission to Mars – For What?!!!

NASA's 1st Mission to Mars - For WhatNASA’s 1st Mission to Mars – For What?!!!
By Michael and Danny D’Agostino
Published: July 2017
ISBN: 978-1548482374
Genre: Humor, Sci-Fi Adventure
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.)

Chicago Scientists Rebuke NASA’s Manned Mission to Mars in their New Comedy Sci-Fi Novel, “NASA’s 1st Mission to Mars – For What?!!!”

The issue: Why spend billions of taxpayer dollars on a manned mission to Mars, a totally dead, uninhabitable planet? For what?!

This witty, sometimes off-the-wall comedy, tells it like it is with authentic, real science, because it’s written by two former scientists, emerging as the comedy writing team of Michael and Danny D’Agostino. You can confirm what they say, like living on Mars would be near impossible: due to its oxygen-poor atmosphere, lack of Earth-like organic soil, the presence of elements and compounds in the rock surface that would contaminate plant growth.

The radiation alone would kill anyone walking on the surface without a thick, all-body radiation barrier. No trees, no plant or animal life, no water, except at the polar regions where you would freeze to death – what is the justification for massive expenditures to finance a mission to a dead planet? There is none.

THE STORY:
Penniless, flat broke, sleeping in a cardboard box in a tent city on the South Side of Chicago, this formerly undistinguished man, Stanley Marczek, becomes the first man to walk on Mars. How is it possible? Why would NASA select a civilian, non-career astronaut for the mission? Obviously, living in a confined space for nineteen months for the journey to Mars, is one consideration. Another, his screening test results prove to be exceptional, better than all other candidates. And this is a man of grit and incredible courage. He accepts NASA’s offer, seeing it as an opportunity to remake his life, earn a cool three million bucks, and return to Earth a hero. But the story isn’t just about Stanley Marczek, (aka Joksey), and the mission to Mars. It is also about his relationships with his loyal friends: Gnidek, a Viet Nam veteran, his dog Chichi, his girlfriend Hannah, and all his friends at tent city. His journey is clouded with almost insurmountable personal and technical challenges, and it is his friends who provide invaluable moral support; they are all in it together. But what is the catch? There has to be a catch. The catch is that Joksey is a man of strong will who freely expresses his mind. So when the mission is complete, and Stanley Marczek returns to Earth, he publicly questions the wisdom of all manned missions to Mars, to the embarrassment of NASA. And he does not mince words. He tells it like it is, straight out! This novel features realistic science-fiction. Although it is a comedy at heart, it makes a very poignant argument about manned missions to Mars.

Epic Fantasy, Sci-fi Thriller – Black Mirrors of the Soul

Black Mirrors of the SoulBlack Mirrors of the Soul
By Charles W. McDonald Jr.
Publisher: A Throne of Souls
Published: April 2017
ASIN: B06Y5YT2C4
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Fantasy, SciFi, Sci-Fi, Sci-Fi Thriller, Speculative Fiction, Paranormal, Magical Realism, Military Fiction, Military, War & Military, Crossover, Thriller, Cerebral Thriller, Fiction, High Fantasy

“We, the seeds of Humanity, are all the descendants of hardened criminals, fighting to survive the unmaking of A Throne of Souls.

Magic and technology have already met on a world far more advanced than our own only to dispense their most dangerous and hardened criminals, for magic has been outlawed.  Their descendants—us, here on Earth, along with the rest of Humanity—are now left to grapple with a Creation undone at the hands of an outlaw mage whose Master Plan affects the seeds of Humanity throughout the known Universe.  This outlaw—this Dark Knight of Magic—must accumulate immeasurable power to thwart the fork of consequences that brought forth the making of A Throne of Souls.  This story, this execution of his Master Plan originating centuries into the past, begins and ends with a triad of pivotal relationships and evolves through his understanding of his own soul.  Within the Master Plan, the dichotomy between hate and hope, across a landscape far beyond epic, is illustrated through vibrant characters developed over two-and-a-half decades.

While Black Mirrors of the Soul is the second installment in the series A Throne of Souls, it illustrates much of the beginning of the story, especially the back-story of The Cauldron of Hate that forged Damon. This is where you’ll read, see, and feel the fuel for the Fork of Consequences. This is the gut-wrenching, emotional journey that will have you screaming, crying, and cheering for more.  From the Monuments of Creation to the Seeds of Humanity to the making of A Throne of Souls, there are plot-lines and clues everywhere in this intricate mosaic for you to unravel.

I think my Proofreader summed it up best when she said, “I’m still trying to pick up the pieces of my emotions you just scattered all over the room.”

A Note from the Author:  This thought-provoking, epic, and cerebral thriller breaks all the rules crossing over Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Fiction, and Military-Fiction genres but as you start reading A Throne of Souls, it will become apparent why those rules had to be broken to tell this multi-world story of Humanity and Creation.  My goal in delivering this product to you was to be worthy of this inimitable story in the way that I tell it—to bring it to you in my voice, but to do so beautifully, elegantly, and intelligently.  There are several things that make this story unique including a flex-style narrative that changes with the scene and technology level available to those characters, a multi-perspective view within given scenes illustrating impactful moments upon a 360-degree axis, and a voice that is more consistent with real-world application.  Is it magical realism?  Sort of!  Is it complex?  Oh yeah!!  Think of it like a large mosaic with nuanced clues of information and disinformation that by themselves might appear to be something you recognize thought might not make sense, but when assembled with other clues provide shocking answers to questions you may never have considered.  It’s going to require a little effort for you to figure out what’s going on, but the plus side of that equation is that you’re in for a big surprise.

Now, if you’re used to stories that are your traditional ‘good’ vs ‘evil,’ single protagonist saves the world type of story, this isn’t that!  My protagonists are not always ‘good,’ and my antagonists are not always ‘bad.’  I believe characters should reflect the real-world, with real thoughts, emotions, and agendas.  I wanted to bring something entirely different to the market and this is about as different as literary fiction gets.  If it’s been a long time since you’ve read something that made you cry, scream, laugh, or cheer out loud, then A Throne of Souls was written for you.  Those are the kind of stories I like to read, and that’s why I wrote A Throne of Souls.  Please enjoy it with all my best hopes and wishes. – Charles W. McDonald Jr.”
