Moon Hoax (Hoax Trilogy Book 1)

by Paul Gillebaard

Paul Gillebaard’s brilliant debut novel is a magnificent tale of seemingly doing the impossible, sending an American back to the moon…today.

China claims the moon landings never happened and that they have proof. Losing worldwide prestige is not an option for the United States. America must prove they won the space race of the 60s.

CIA agent and former NASA candidate Peter Novak, son of a U.S. moonwalker, is selected to fly a mission back to the moon against UN sanctions to set the record straight. With no manned rocket close to flying, America must figure out how to get their man into deep space undetected and without international help.

Restoring his father’s good name and the reputation of his country on a one-way ticket to lunar orbit sounds crazyâ??but its Peter’s only chance to break free of Earth’s atmosphere and fulfill his dream as an astronaut. Peter enlists a former space rival as his unlikely co-pilot, and the two battle to outwit China’s efforts to sabotage the operation and beat the Chinese back to the moon.

America is thrust into a race back to the moon–And this time it’s personal.

The American Game

by Jeff McArthur

For three long years, the American Civil War has

raged across the nation, scorching the land, leaving

thousands dead, and tearing families apart. The

endless fighting has hardened the hearts of soldiers

of both sides.

But on a lonely field in mid-Tennessee, some of

those soldiers will come face to face with one another

in a series of ball games. Stalled in a stalemate, the

soldiers start out with small bets on who is better at

the game; but as the wagers increase, so do the risks.

In order to play, they will have to accomplish what

their governments were incapable of doing to avoid

the war, compromise. Each man will bring his own

ideas and rules to the sport, and together they

formulate their own form of the American game.

But they have to be cautious, for soon the war

will catch up with them, and they will be forced into

conflict once again.
