In Everything Trump Touches Dies, political campaign strategist and commentator Rick Wilson brings his darkly funny humor and biting analysis to the absurdity of American politics in the age of Trump. Wilson mercilessly exposes the damage Trump has done to the country, to the Republican Party he served for decades, and to the conservative movement that has abandoned its principles for the worst president in American history. No left-winger, Wilson is a lifelong conservative who delivers his withering critique of Trump from the right.

Full of information, truth, and humor.

Rick roasts all the political chestnuts on the Right, Left, and Middle.

Talks about the personalities involved, how we got here, and where we might end up going as a country.

By working together, Henry Sato and Jason Booth have managed to survive their unwanted trip to Ludus, an experiment planet. However, Delvers LLC has made some enemies...if monsters, bandits, mages, criminals, bounty hunters, and even dark cults can be called, "some enemies." After their latest battle, the two have been separated and must adapt or die. Henry in particular faces a trial by fire - perhaps literally - that may be impossible for him to overcome. The two American men will face their greatest challenges yet while working as conscripted Berber Intelligence agents. But even while outnumbered, and most likely outgunned, the former veteran EMT and resilient IT programmer will be armed with modern Earth know-how.

I have listened to all four books "currently" available in the series. I have found them all enjoyable.

I will get the next book once it comes out.

The one criticism I have is that the number of characters is getting a little daunting. It is getting hard to keep them all straight.

Arthur's Seat had never sought a galactic role. A relatively new colony world, a mere 300 years old, the planet was always isolated from the galactic mainstream. But with the Empire crumbling after the fall of Earth and other planets taking advantage of the chaos to make their own bids for power, Arthur's Seat suddenly finds itself playing host to tens of thousands of unwanted immigrants, refugees who have been kicked off countless other worlds.

More right wing BS from Nuttal. Modeled after the after the worst of issues with Muslim integration into the West. I returned the book. I find I have had to do this a number of times as Nuttal can get preachy with his right wing BS.

I always love Jeffery Kafer as Narrator, in this case it is the story that puts me off.

Let’s get back to Stryker and bringing him (his crew) and the rest of the Corps back together to help the Worlds supported by Stryker and the Trade Federation.

My name is Alice Long, and I've always known I was different. When I was little I used to climb up to the highest branches of the housetree at night, and watch the starships docking at the orbital stations high above. Forty meters off the ground, watching ships 30,000 kilometers overhead, with senses that could pick out radar pings and comm chatter as easily as the ships themselves. It all seemed perfectly natural at the time.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

I love the story and the performance. It has adventure, space battles, multiple types of space aliens, and generous doses of humor.

The narrator hit's it out of the park.

The second one is also great and I recommend it heartily and am waiting on the release of the third one in the series.

When Dan McCarthy stumbles upon a folder containing evidence of the conspiracy to end all conspiracies - a top-level alien cover-up - he leaks the files without a second thought. The incredible truth revealed by Dan's leak immediately captures the public's imagination, but Dan's relentless commitment to exposing the cover-up and forcing disclosure quickly earns him some enemies in high places.

For those into space based SyFi this is a bit different. If you are looking for space battles like "The Lost Fleet" series or gun fights and rapid action like found in either the "Kris Longknife" or "Cassandra Kresnov" books then this will not be it.

That said, I really enjoyed both the story and the narrators presentation of it. The story has excellent characters and a thought through story line.
