We’re always grateful for the support of our readers and are thrilled when you come back time and again to buy our latest releases whether online or at conventions and library events.
We would like to ask a favor. We’re looking for more reviews for our books, especially on Amazon. Whether good, bad, or “just okay” as long as they’re honest, it would be an immense help to us. You see, once a book reaches 50 reviews, Amazon helps to promote the book by giving it more exposure on their site. Thus, reviews are critical to an author’s career.
We deeply appreciate the reviews we’ve received so far. The overwhelming majority of them have been effusive. We also know you’re busy, so even just a one-line or two-line comment would be wonderful. If you want to go into detail about why you liked the book, even better!
So whether it was Steve Wilson’s Arbiter Chronicles or Peace Lords of the Red Planet, Phil Giunta’s Testing the Prisoner or By Your Side, Heroic Park by Lance Woods, Diane Baron’s Gal Wonder or The Fandom Fifty,Firebringer Take Two by Phil and Steve, or our Middle of Eternity anthologies, we would love to hear from you on Amazon.

Just a reminder that Diane Baron will launch her latest book, The Fandom Fifty, at Shore Leave 41 SF convention in less than two weeks!
The Fandom Fifty is a collection of interviews and anecdotes from many of the organizers, guests, and attendees of Maryland’s SF Convention scene. The Baltimore region is home to a number of popular and enduring SF cons that include Farpoint, Balticon, Shore Leave, and others. The Fandom Fifty covers much of the rich history of the cons and honors many of the dedicated people who make them happen.
Attendees of Shore Leave 41 will be able to buy copies of The Fandom Fifty–and all other Firebringer Press titles–at the Friday night Meet the Pros book fair from 10PM to midnight.
Further, Diane, Steven H. Wilson, and Phil Giunta will host the traditional Firebringer Press Presents discussion panel in Salon A from 1-2PM on Saturday to celebrate The Fandom Fifty’s launch!
We’ll also showcase Firebringer’s current titles and update everyone on what’s to come, including the third volume in the Middle of Eternity anthology series and the next installment of The Arbiter Chronicles, Steve Wilson’s popular SF series.
The generation that grew up after television but before the Internet saw the birth of a whole new kind of popular culture; tales of other worlds, possible futures, and strange alien life forms captured the imaginations of many. From math club nerds to geek chic, from hiding comics in our textbooks to Marvel movies dominating the box office, fans of the fantastic have come a long way. Steven Howell Wilson, author, publisher, science fiction convention promoter, fanfiction writer, blogger, podcaster, and Star Trek comics scribe will lead you on a journey through the history of an amazing era. Millennials and GenZ-ers welcome if you promise not to make fun of our flip phones!
Firebringer Press author Phil Giunta will have a table in Creator Alley at the Lehigh Valley Comic Con on Saturday, June 22 from 10AM to 4PM at Lehigh Carbon Community College in Schecksville, PA.
