Robert Kroese's sense of irony was honed growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan - home of the Amway Corporation and the Gerald R. Ford Museum, and the first city in the United States to fluoridate its water supply. In second grade, he wrote his first novel, the saga of Captain Bill and his spaceship Thee Eagle. This turned out to be the high point of his academic career. After barely graduating from Calvin College in 1992 with a philosophy degree, he was fired from a variety of jobs before moving to California, where he stumbled into software development. As this job required neither punctuality nor a sense of direction, he excelled at it. In 2009, he called upon his extensive knowledge of useless information and love of explosions to write his first novel, Mercury Falls. Since then, he has three more books in the Mercury series; a humorous epic fantasy, Disenchanted; and a quantum physics noir thriller, Schrodinger's Gat. His latest book is Starship Grifters.Website: robertkroese.comFacebook: facebook.com/robkroeseTwitter: twitter.com/robkroese

This short story tells the surprizingly silly story of the fall of Troy and the founding of Rome. The divine plan is all planned out and it's up to angels like Mercury to bring it to pass, but that's the problem. Mercury did take a few notes during the power point presentation that outlined the thin...

This cleverly funny apocalyptic romp is filled with angels, fallen and faithful, and humans, determined and clueless. The angels, both heaven’s and Satan’s, are great at seeing the big picture but sometimes careless about details, and they are so used to following orders and doing as they are told...

This was an interesting sort of story. I knew when I accepted the book for review that it was the second in the series and was told that it could stand alone. I really felt that I was missing something by not reading book one in the series because I didn't really find out very much about Mercury or ...
