About Mark Jacobs

Mark Paul Jacobs lives in lovely Dauphin, Pennsylvania. He enjoys fishing the Canadian north, poker, and annoying his wife. He has authored two novels: How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex, a Historical Science Fiction tale set in 1914, and the hard science fiction novel: The Yaakmen of Tyrie, a powerful and mysterious tale of bravery, loss, perseverance, betrayal, and redemption. He is also quite proud of his awe-inspiring short story: The Day God Winked and his chilling novelette with the provocative title: The Watchers from within Moments Revealed, an almost universally well reviewed work for which he has written a screenplay suitable for an ‘Outer Limits’ episode. These and several other works are available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Sony, and Smashwords.com. How Teddy Roosevelt Slew the last Mighty T-Rex and The Yaakmen of Tyrie is available in paperback via Createspace.com. Mark is working on a movie screenplay tentatively called Stain which is a gritty murder conspiracy based in Central Pennsylvania similar to the movie ‘Fargo’ or ‘Reservoir Dogs’. Please enjoy his works and don’t be afraid to tell him what you think on his Facebook page, twitter account, or by email. And lastly, please take the time to leave him a review of his work; it doesn’t have to be long or long-winded, but it does make him feel that his hard word has touched someone’s life in some way. You can leave a review wherever his books are available.

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on July 28, 2013 :
A good fantasy tale of a warrior/killer who questions his life.

For me the story was a little tame and could have used a bit more oommph to lift it above the typical sword and sorcery. That said though, it was quick and fast paced, and the world that the writer dreams up is also very interesting.

So all in all, I would recommend this for a short sharp fantasy kick to start off a good days reading.

Awesome imagery, kept thinking of season 1 of Game of Thrones when those guys are killed by the White Walker. The snowy feel and all made me think of that.

Well written and introspective. Can a tiger change his stripes?

What skillful imagery! The barren, cold life and cold landscape are beautifully juxtaposed against an unexpected...warming.

Well worth the read.
