Amerindian 2192, by J. Scott Garibay

My friend and former writer's group cohort, J. Scott Garibay has published his first book, "Amerindian 2192".

He's chosen to epublish it, and for the moment it's available for free at his website: Amerindian 2192 in .pdf format.

I've read and critiqued several chapters for this, his first novel. It's a military SF book about the search for an ancestral home by Native American Indians in the distant future. One of the things I like best about Scott's writing is that he makes the presence of technological gadgetry in his stories seem very natural and obvious, all without much in terms of exposition. For instance, a character passes by a "hardlight display" - and although what "hardlight" is is not explained, it's perfectly obvious and fits very organically with the world setting.

He's encouraged the writing group to spread the word, and for people who are interested to read his book. Spread the word, SF fans!
