Wow, I’ve been terrible about keeping this blog updated. So, um… I went to Iceland and did a bunch of research about Vikings for my Iron Dragon series and then I went to Romania and got a bunch of dental work done and then I wrote another Rex Nihilo book. 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 […]

Get a signed advance copy of The Last Iota

April 25, 2017 Rob 0

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. […]

Announcing the Wrongthink Sci-Fi Giveaway

April 19, 2017 Rob 7

Over the past few years you’ve probably heard about authors who have been punished by the progressive sci-fi “community” for not toeing the line on various political issues. From Sarah Hoyt, who was accused of racism and “internalized misogyny” for her association with the Sad Puppies campaign to reform the Hugo Awards, to Nick Cole, who lost a publishing contract for daring to write a story about an artificially intelligent computer who is troubled by abortion, these authors have faced smear […]

So this happened (PW review of The Last Iota)

April 7, 2017 Rob 0

From the Publisher’s Weekly starred review of The Last Iota (sequel to The Big Sheep): Kroese gifts readers with his gripping second mystery set in 2039 Los Angeles (after 2016’s The Big Sheep), another sophisticated blend of science fiction and crime. A decade after a national economic trauma known simply as the Collapse, a large segment of the city, the Disincorporated Zone, remains beyond the reach of law and order. PI Blake Fowler’s ex-girlfriend Gwen Thorson went into hiding there after […]

Interview with Rhett Bruno, Author of From Ice to Ashes

March 30, 2017 Rob 0

Today I’m launching what I hope will be a recurring feature on BadNovelist: interviews with other sci-fi authors! I’m kicking it off with Rhett Bruno, author of Titanborn and From Ice to Ashes. You’ve written several sci-fi books. Your latest, From Ice to Ashes, just came out on Tuesday. Can you tell us about it? Sure. So, From Ice to Ashes is really about the birth of a rebellion on an offworld colony on Titan whose people have been constantly […]

March 28, 2017 Rob 0

A few weeks ago I launched a service called Book Laser, which lets subscribers know about great deals on Kindle sci-fi books. Book Laser has recently featured deals on books by Joe Haldeman, Ray Bradbury, Neal Stephenson, William Gibson, Neil Gaiman, Hugh Howey, James S. A. Corey, Joe Hill, Nick Cole, Kim Stanley Robinson and many more. Rather than deluge you with a bunch of “deals” on cheesy books like Taken By the Space Vampire, I select only the best […]

My most ambitious project ever: Saga of the Iron Dragon!

March 23, 2017 Rob 0

What if you found yourself in medieval Scandinavia with nothing but a knowledge of modern science, mathematics and technology? Further, what if the future of humanity rested on you building a craft capable of reaching outer space? Would it be possible? How would you go about doing it? How long would it take? This is the premise of my ambitious new alternative history trilogy, Saga of the Iron Dragon. Clearly you wouldn’t be able to build a spaceship on your […]
