The Little Guy Or The Motor Scooter: The story of a diminutive soldier in the rear with the gear is a work of fiction in the military, character-led, and interpersonal drama sub-genres, and was penned by author Joseph Perry Grassi. Written for mature reading audiences, the work does contain the use of explicit language, scenes of a sexual nature, and graphic violence appropriate to the plot. As the title suggests, our central protagonist Corrado Giordano is little in stature, but big on…

Book review of In the Blood

Iowa, 1948. Readers are presented with a bleak illustration of intolerance in America when you are judged by your skin color. In the Blood is inspirational in its plot, yet manages to picture a setting that is dangerous for a band of black jazz musicians with a young white girl as a saxophonist. David Hoing and Roger Hileman provide rich literary material for exploring dilemmas of the human experience as they introduce us to K.C. Brown, a nineteen-year-old Caucasian saxophonist. Being…

#Book Review of #AudieMurphyinSaigon from #ReadersFavorite Reviewed by Vincent Dublado for Readers' Favorite

Book review of Audie Murphy in Saigon

Vietnam has become a word synonymous with American failure, a lost cause that exhausted manpower and resources. Edgar Tiffany’s Audie Murphy in Saigon attests to this. The book is divided into his long essay accounts of his experiences as a medic during the Vietnam War. The second part is an anthology of fiction about the Women’s Amy Corps, a soldier-bodyguard, and stories set in Europe with Vietnam undertones handled with a surrealist effect. He draws from a myriad of resources that are…

Book review of White Ghosts

It must have been difficult living in the penal colonies of what we now know as Australia, halfway around the world from home with little or no chance of returning. To those sent either as military personnel or convicts, it must have felt like what people today would consider a one-way trip to Mars. However, there were people there before the English began the settlements, building communities using the prisoners as an unpaid workforce. Aboriginals had roamed the continent long before white…
