Fighting for the future in the Khyber Pass!
The Khyber Connection - Simon Hawke
As the leading historical adjustment team of the First Division of the U.S. Army Temporal Corps, Lucas Priest, Finn Delaney, and Andre Cross are used to being called into hazardous situations in which the fate of their world is at stake. But when a sergeant in the USATC serving as a British soldier in 1897 Afghanistan is found dead next to the identical body of a Ghazi tribesman, it is clear that the trio face their most dangerous mission yet. Not only does it appear that a time stream split has taken place, but that the people in that timeline are also operating in the past. To find the split, Priest, Delaney and Cross join a relief expedition dispatched by the British Army into the Khyber Pass to deal with rebelling tribesmen. But what if the situation is more serious than it seems? And why is it that none of their briefing materials include any mention of a war correspondent named Winston Churchill?
 
With the sixth book in his Time Wars series, Simon Hawke shifts his focus to a new threat that will predominate for the rest of its run. Having previously dealt with the consequences of temporal accidents and the machinations of the history-disrupting terrorists known as the Timekeepers, the time commandos now face an alternate timeline that has declared war against them. This increases the stakes, and allows Hawke to introduce the prospect of temporal doppelgangers and a higher degree of emotional conflict. His efficient storytelling makes for a zippy, Kipling-flavored novel that is only occasionally derailed by the periodic exposition-dumps his characters make in order to clear the way for other developments, resulting in an enjoyable sci-fi adventure that provides a pleasant afternoon of light reading.

Division
Division: A Collection of Science Fiction Fairytales - Lee S. Hawke

I hesitate to call the stories in this collection Fairy tales because they never gave off the fairy tale vibe for me. It was a collection of short stories set in different dystopian/high tech futures. And while they are dealing with diverse aspects of possible dystopian futures, I was left wanting something more.

Some of the stories had interesting topics, which I think would have worked better in a longer story where the story/world could have been fleshed out a bit more. I quite liked the writing however, so I might pick up more a longer story by Lee S. Hawke.
