During the 1940s & 50s, the Beat writers brought a breath of personal freedom to the stultifying social conformity and fossilized literature of that era. Cultural advance and literary innovation depend upon dissenting voices. This artistic movement was ignited by the poetry & prose of Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs and a number of minor writers. Watson chronicles the rise and fall of the Beat Generation. Enjoy the review.

The "Blue Gemini" techno-thriller trilogy follows several characters involved in a secret Air Force space program during the Cold War. Blending fact and fiction, the story accurately depicts the culture and technology of that era, on both sides of the Iron Curtain. Publishers Weekly describes it as "An epic tale of high-stakes action seasoned with the muddy complexities of human relationships." Available in hardback, e-book (Kindle and Nook) and Audiobook. www.mikejennebooks.com

Good luck!
