Final Cover and First Review of Operation: Montauk


Lucas Ackley from Ackley Design has been responsible for every single one of my print covers. For Operation: Montauk, he took Blain Hefner's incredible painting and turned it into an amazing vintage book cover, front and back.

While this looks fantastic, I have even better news.

Operation: Montauk has had its first review, and it's a doozy. [insertgeekhere] gave it some high praise indeed. Here's an excerpt:

The book grabbed me from its opening words. I was thrust so quickly into the story that I felt like Cpl. Mallory trying to figure out what the heck was going on. I didn't even realize I was holding my breath until a word appeared. A word that never fails to cause a reaction from me - dinosaur. Like Mallory, time froze for me. At that moment, I let out my breath and unlike Mallory, started to grin like an idiot....
...I could not put this book down, only my need to sleep and work prevented me from finishing this in one sitting...

So to sum up, is this book a must-read? Yes. Emphatically so.

Why? Aside from it being a well written, interesting, fun book that will take you on a crazy roller coaster of a ride? Okay. Four words: Time travel, dinosaurs, Nazis. 'Nuff said. 
You can (and should) read the full thing here.

Print copies of Operation: Montauk are available for pre-order now.
