The Final Hero - A Novel of the Cold War

A New Book by
Bob Anderson and Ward Wagher

William Walker was a successful novelist and a frustrated one. He was writing a newspaper column featuring American military heroes of World War 2, Korea, and Vietnam. This required time away from home, which frustrated his wife. He finally agreed with her to drop the column at the end of the contract, in order to resume writing his novels.

A friend, who was an Army general at Fort Bragg, convinced William to write one last column. By doing so he became an unwitting pawn in the contest between East and West, the Warsaw Pact and NATO. As he was drawn deeper into the intrigue, his world collapsed around him. The American government suspected he was a Soviet agent. His wife was convinced he had lied to her about giving up his newspaper column. His friends in the Army thought he was collaborating with the Russians.

The nations spin rapidly towards all-out war as William struggled to clear his name and keep his marriage. But, would all that even matter in the end?

Inconsequential Nazi

The Parallel Nazi Book 4

Heinrich Schloss has achieved a measure of peace and prosperity in the Third Reich. He hopes to continue that state of affairs so that he can deal with other issues left over from the evil men who preceded him. The relationship between Germany and the United States approaches something like friendship while the British have not decided where they stand.

The sullen beat of war drums from the East breaks opens a time of uncertainty for Schloss and his government. They must determine when and if Stalin will invade, and they must also determine how to defend against the onslaught.

This fourth book of the Parallel Nazi saga continues the story of a man pulled from a different time and universe to confront the evil that sat astride Berlin.


Principles of Christian Science-Fiction

The goal of Christian Science-Fiction is to create an exciting story in the speculative realm and also honor Christ the Lord. In order to achieve this goal we observe the following basic principles:

  • 1. Any references to the Christian faith, and doctrine shall be compatible with the Bible.
  • 2. While conflicting philosophies may be presented, ultimately the story shall support what is commonly known as the Christian World-view.
  • 3. Gratuitous and graphic violence shall be avoided.
  • 4. Explicit sexual content shall be avoided, and sex within the context of monogamous marriage shall be presented as the ideal.
  • 5. Language that includes swearing, explicit vulgarity, and general coarseness shall be avoided.

In general, the text should be designed so that the author will not be embarrassed to have the book read by church members / spouses / children.
