A BubbaVerse Monster Hunter Series
Beginner’s Luck: Monsters Are Not Myths Volume 1
While Matthew Peterson is your typical All-American farm boy turned soldier, complete with wise cracking siblings and a whole heap of daddy issues, he is far from your typical monster hunter. For starters, he doesn’t know jack about the supernatural world. What he lacks in knowledge he makes up for in guts, tenacity, and that all-important grit.
Whether he’s charging into a bear cave, battling a gang fueled by ‘roid rage, or simply going medieval in a winter wonderland, Matthew will figure it out and he hasn’t even accepted the job yet. All he needs is a healthy dose of beginner’s luck.
This volume collects the first three Peterson Apostle Monster Hunter Novellas by L. R. Gould
The Lost Peterson Apostle
The Lost Peterson Apostle
It took his little brother’s death to drag Sergeant Matthew Peterson home for the first time in four years. They told him it was suicide, but Matthew soon discovers that there are other forces at play. Joined by an old man in a duster with a traveling armory in his truck, Matthew goes hunting for the real cause of his brother’s death, and perhaps a little justice along the way.
With his mysterious new companion, he may discover much more dwells in the woods near his home than he ever expected. That is, if his father doesn’t kill him first and he can manage to get along with his brothers for more than a day.
Months ago, a werebear ripped Matthew Peterson’s world apart. The injuries may have healed, but when an old friend returns unexpectedly, he soon finds that some wounds don’t get better with time, they only fester.
Long held hard feelings and phantoms of his late brother’s monster journal fuel the latest dumpster fire to erupt in his life. He may be losing his mind or it could be something supernatural—either way, this time he’s on his own.
Matthew is home for the holidays, though without his little brother, there’s more than cheer missing from the season. He barely gets boots on the ground before regional monster hunter Jacob hijacks his holiday. Kids are missing in rural New York and Jacob drafts Matthew into a desperate supernatural hunt to kill the beast before it can strike any closer to home, but even together they may not be enough.
It’ll take a whim, a prayer, and an antique arsenal to win this one.
The Gen-Ship Endurance Series
Traveling between the stars takes generations and a tightly controlled population balanced on the edge of a knife between dying out and outgrowing the ship’s limited resources. For the colony ship, Endurance, the Longevity program has successfully managed the size of all-female crew population for more than twenty generations.
Concerns rise when Longevity ramps up the birth rate, but when the next generation doesn’t look like the others, it’s up to Doctor Cynthia Synclara to figure out why before drastic measures are taken.
Twenty generations is a long time and the crew of the Endurance has forgotten many crucial details about life on their home planet, Earth.
If Cynthia can’t uncover the knowledge they lost, this next generation may be the last.
