January 17, 2018 Rob 0

My latest novel, the alternate history sci-fi Viking saga The Dream of the Iron Dragon, is here at last! Trapped in 9th century Scandinavia, a group of travelers from the year 2207 have one hope to save humanity: teach the Vikings how to build a ship capable of reaching the stars. “Terrific storytelling, letter-perfect alternate-history, and the highest stakes for humanity imaginable combine to make this a thrilling start to an exciting new Viking saga. Kroese avoids both romanticizing and demonizing […]

What lurks beneath Vatnajökull glacier?

December 29, 2017 Rob 2

United States Air Force Colonel Emily Rollins ducked out of the chartered helicopter and walked briskly to the police car parked across both lanes of Route One.

The man made a show of inspecting her ID and then handed it back to her. “Over there,” the man said, in crisp English. […]

How to Fix The Last Jedi

December 24, 2017 Rob 1

Okay, sit down, everybody. I’ve figured out how you could make a really good movie out of The Last Jedi. (Spoilers ahead.)   There are several problems with the narrative of TLJ: The entire Poe/Finn/Rose arc is pointless and, in fact, counterproductive, as it’s how TFO finds out about the real escape plan. Despite doing more damage to the Resistance than Kylo Ren, Snoke and Hux combined, Poe is never held accountable for his insubordination or general stupidity. As a […]

Seven hilarious sci-fi titles for $.99 each!

September 11, 2017 Rob 0

Not long ago, in a galaxy remarkably similar to our own, a bunch of sci-fi authors got together to build The Ultimate Weapon. However, lacking the Resources, Technological Know-How and Motivation for this project, they decided instead just to put a bunch of their books on sale for $.99 and call it a day. That’s right, for a very limited time, you can get seven hilarious space adventure titles for the ridiculously low price of $.99 each on Kindle! The […]

OOTSP!

July 13, 2017 Rob 0

Wow, I’ve been terrible about keeping this blog updated.

There, you’re caught up. That’s right, it’s release day for my Starship Grifters prequel, Out of the Soylent Planet!  If you haven’t read any of the books in the Starship Grifters series, Out […]

The Last Iota (sequel to The Big Sheep) is almost here, and the reviews are in. Booklist says The Last Iota is “a riveting tale of action and intrigue” that “readers won’t be able to put down” and Publisher’s Weekly says (in a starred review!): Kroese gifts readers with his gripping second mystery set in 2039 Los Angeles, another sophisticated blend of science fiction and crime. The plot twists are both logical and surprising, with developments and motivations straight out of classic L.A. […]
