About AJ Asher

A. J. Asher is a pen name chosen specifically for publishing ebooks.

The photo is my youngest giving her impression of a 'cute smile' for a family photo. No one noticed until we had it developed. She is older now - LOL.

The formative years for my wife and I centered around farm life. We met and married in college and then spent time as a married couple in the military prior to returning to college to finish our degrees. After college we were blessed with three healthy children, one boy (the oldest) and two girls. Common interests that drew my wife and I together were mathematics (how we met), music, and a deep love of reading.

Family life experiences have included seeing/enjoying/suffering through numerous dogs (the last died 6 years ago), fish (the salt water type were harder to keep alive - at least in our household), parrots (the last is still with us but has gotten nippy), and gerbils (a small mammal of the order Rodentia once known simply as "desert rats") who, if their cage is placed too close, will eat the drapes (sigh). Who knew?
Other learned family facts include: Waterbeds and small fingers are not a match made in heaven (you can not sleep in a 100 degree waterbed - no matter how tired you are); A child can find a way to use a plastic 'big wheel' and a soft grass lawn to break a perfectly good wrist bone; and, raising tomatoes for bacon and tomato sandwiches (yum) only works if your dogs don't develop a yen for eating the tomatoes.

Life experiences outside of family include: military experience {Hey you in the green hat!}, multiple degrees in mathematics {Axiom of Choice? I have to know that?}, college level instructing {How come we can’t have an open book exam?}, sales {No really. Trust me!}, and work for a U.S. government agency {I think I might be secret service because nobody tells me anything}. Okay, okay I fess, definitely not secret service. Those folks are way too serious. My official government title: peon. My unofficial government title: lowly peon.

I am appreciative of your interest and sincerely hope you enjoy my story telling.

First came across this story for free elsewhere, buying it just because the story is so good.

This book is an absolute page-turner, plot, humor, action, likeable characters, this story has it all. Very re-readable to, I'm on my 6th re-read now.

Both thumbs up and 5 stars, I'm hoping to see more from this author

A very good book. The only thing that I can find that is wrong with this book is, that the rest aren't already done.

Please author write the rest of the series NOW!!

It's filled with great characters, an interesting plot.

This is/should be a must read for everyone who likes science fiction or who are simply looking for a good read.

Bought this book yesterday afternoon around 3PM, found that I couldn't put it down until I had finished reading it at 0430 this morning.
Absolutely outstanding story which kept me interested and unable to put it down.
I have paid more for books by "Recognised" authors and enjoyed them less than I enjoyed this one.

Review by: Mark Shipp on March 11, 2013 :
I have purchased similar themed novels for 3 times the amount of this one and didn't enjoy them near as much. For Sci-fi action it's hard to get better than this. Can't wait for sequals!!

Review by: Blue on Feb. 27, 2013 :
Great book very much in the same vein as David Drake or David Webber. I'd enjoy reading a sequal in this setting.

Review by: sixiron on Dec. 31, 2012 :
An exceptional work, absolutely riveting. Characters you can sink your teeth into, action that keeps you on the edge of your seat, betrayals and treachery that will piss you off. One of the best stories I read. There must be more, the author has real talent for telling a story, there just has to be more.
