About Steven Burgauer

Steven Burgauer, Biography

Avid hiker, Eagle Scout, and founder of a mutual fund, Steven Burgauer resides in Florida. A graduate of Illinois State University and the New York Institute of Finance, Steve writes science fiction and historic fiction.

Burgauer’s The Road to War: Duty & Drill, Courage & Capture is based on the journals of an American WWII infantryman who landed at Normandy, was wounded and taken prisoner by the Nazis.

A member of the Society of Midland Authors, Steven is included in The Dictionary of Midwestern Literature, Volume 2: Dimensions of the Midwestern Literary Imagination.

Some of his SF titles include The Grandfather Paradox, The Railguns of Luna, The Fornax Drive, and SKULLCAP. Other books of his include The Night of the Eleventh Sun, a Neanderthal’s first encounter with man, and The Wealth Builder’s Guide: An Investment Primer. Steven contributed to the zany, serial mystery, Naked Came the Farmer, headlined by Philip Jose Farmer.

His work has been reviewed in many places, including LOCUS, SCIENCE FICTION CHRONICLE, the PEORIA JOURNAL STAR, the EUREKA LITERARY MAGAZINE, and PROMETHEUS, the journal of the Libertarian Futurist Society.

A review of The Railguns of Luna from the prestigious SCIENCE FICTION CHRONICLE (June 2001):

Steven Burgauer writes old style science fiction in which heroes and villains are easily identified, the action is fast and furious, and the plot twists and turns uncontrollably. His newest is the story of a crack team of military specialists who discover that the brilliant but warped Cassandra Mubarak is planning to use advanced scientific devices to seize control of the world. To stop her, they must infiltrate her heavily guarded headquarters and rescue the fair maiden in distress. This is action adventure written straightforwardly and not meant to be heavily literary or provide pithy commentary on the state of humanity.
Don D’Ammassa

When Steven lived in Illinois, the State of Illinois Library included him in a select group of authors invited to the state’s Authors’ Day. He has often been a speaker and panel member at public library events and science-fiction conventions all across the country.

Not Kindle Unlimited, actually got this as one of those amazon gift books after asking a review site to ask the writer if could have a review copy, so needless to say but will say it anyway, free will and all that, and yes all my own opinions and in no way other than being grateful for the chance to read a non-ku book does my review have anything to do with anything other than my usual wanted to read it, read it, and now reviewing it. Needs to have half star ratings because there are some issues to me with this and the other one, just not a star's worth.
The writing, as in the other one, could have been tighter in places and some things left out all together {the extra descriptions of things that didn't really advance the story so slowed it down, the basically not graphic but dealing with sex, what was the point, literally, etcetera}. Maybe if the writer tried to put this in to serialized version he would realize just what parts are sticking out/don't contribute to the story, and then make each story a trilogy or whatever it is they call a 2 set, because even as a natural speedreader it took me a day each for both books {War and Peace only took me 2 days, and that was broken up by school, but nowadays do nothing but mainly read.}

Had already read Nazi Saboteurs on the Bayou by same writer, the same way, the same thoughts overall. Wanted to give it a 4 1/2 but of course not such thing so went to 4, but hopefully the writer will consider the points made, as the stories were good, BUT... Ah and btw, Parker was not the last name in any way of Billy the Kid; Parker was the last name of Bonnie of Bonnie and Clyde infamy.
