'Starfighter: Through the Looking Glass', rousing space opera fun

I have a new story out, “Starfighter: Through the Looking Glass”, now available on Amazon Kindle and in paperback. “Starfighter" is a rousing, meta space opera adventure. If you are a fan of “The Orville”, “Star Trek”, “Battlestar Galactica”, “Buck Rogers”, “Lost in Space”, etc., then you will love “Starfighter”.

From the back cover:

Everyone has a favorite TV show. For Lieutenant Alex Bell that show was a short-lived action adventure space opera called “Among the Stars”. It was much more than just a television series to Alex. It offered her escape during her adolescence. It even inspired her to become a Navy fighter pilot. Then one day, the show became her real life.

“Starfighter” is an exhilarating joyride of bold, imaginative fiction from James J. Caterino, the author of “Fantastic Stories”, “Fireflies”, and “Watch the Skies”.

'Fireflies', a moving, suspenseful story of the fantastic

The year is 1983 and something strange is going on in Cross Creek, Pennsylvania.After a devastating family tragedy, Emma moves across the country at the start of her freshman year of high school. Grief-stricken, isolated, and harassed by local bullies, she is feeling lost and lonely. One day, she takes a shortcut home from school through the woods and encounters a group of strange, otherworldly, flying orbs of light that she dubs “the fireflies”. She feels a deep connection to them as her interaction with the fireflies continues, bringing her new hope, wonder, startling insights, and horrific dangers beyond anything she could have imagined.

In the tradition of the films of Amblin Entertainment, “Fireflies” is a moving, suspenseful story of the fantastic from James J. Caterino, author of the acclaimed UFO epic “Watch the Skies”, “The Last Neanderthal”, and the “Caitlin Star” series.
