Yeah! The Harry Seaburn Thriller Series debuted in January 2015 with The Feathered Virgin (click the title to order from Amazon), the first of seven books telling the wild and mordantly comic story of a thief who is tough, brash, running on empty and wants a good woman, anybody’s good woman, but he tends to kill people. More novels will follow every few weeks and here’s the publication schedule (click the titles to order from Amazon):
The Elephant Dance - March
The Flying Pig - April
The Lazy Tiger - May
The Cracker Kingdom (the final story) – July

Now for too much about Steven Hardesty
War and thriller novelist, sci-fi, indie publisher, hungry traveler, military historian, Vietnam vet ’68-69 still trying to figure things out. Worked in Burma, Iran, Saudi Arabia, more. Grand places, tough living.
I like the tastes and smells of old bazaars. Seeing a desert rose bloom through snow beside a minaret. Standing in a haunted silver mine on a mountainside overlooking a jungle city. Stepping aside to let elephants pass on a Mandalay street. Drifting off to sleep listening to the baby cries of tigers in the hills. Meeting all the many kinds of people the world offers – grand, tough, exciting and sometimes terrible. Watching my child being born and thinking her the greatest adventure of all.
I write about these and other things in my novels and and short stories, and sometimes in my blogs Man Up a Tree with a Book and a Pizza (click in the menu bar) and Forgotten War Stories at
Oh, yes, for those who like to read dusty back issues, I’m Rafe van Zanzs in some places like Science Fiction Review and Arthur Cuff in others, such as Mike Shayne’s Mystery Magazine.
