      Scott has always been in the place between the here and now and the what could be He started reading science fiction and fantasy at the tender age of nine, encouraged by his mother But as he read the golden age classics and modern works too, he started to wonder where all the queer people were.When Scott came out at 23, he decided he wanted to create the kinds of stories he couldn t find at the bookstore If there weren t gay characters in his favorite genres, he would reimagine them, filling them with queer men He d remake them to his own ends, and if he was lucky enough, someone would even want to read them.Scott s brain works a little differently from most folks he sees connections where others don t Born an introvert, he learned how to reach outside himself and connect with other queer folks.Scott s fiction defies expectations, transforming traditional science fiction, fantasy, and contemporary worlds into something fresh and surprising He also created both Queer Sci Fi and QueeRomance Ink with his husband Mark.His writing, both romance and genre fiction, brings a queer energy to his work, infusing them with love, beauty and strength and making them fly He imagines how the world could be, and maybe changes the world that is, just a little.Scott was recognized as one of the top new gay authors in the 2017 Rainbow Awards, and his debut novel Skythane received two awards and an honorable mention.He lives with his husband in a leafy Sacramento, California suburb, in a cute yellow house with a pair of pink flamingoes in the front yard.

    • ‘Lander’ is the fantastic second novel in the ‘Oberon Cycle’ series, set in the future around the year 3000 or so. Oberon – previously split into two halves, with Titania hidden in some mysterious parallel universe – has been reunited into one planet, now called Erro. As unifications go, this one was pretty violent and the environmental upheaval has all sorts of consequences. Obercorp is still up to no good, pith is still addictive, and the cultural war between the skythane and the l [...]

    • Full disclosure: I did not read the first book in the series. It didn’t hurt my enjoyment at all. Despite how this book builds on the previous one, I wasn’t lost. It was easy to pick up from context what had happened, and the glossary at the end was immensely helpful just to keep things sorted out. I appreciate how skillfully things are explained throughout. There’s no info-dumping or long passages rehashing the previous novel’s plot. It works well, and I can say that as a newbie to the [...]

    • The Oberon Cycle books (Skythane and, now, Lander) are an odd but fascinating mix of sci-fi and fantasy. I’ll admit that I personally find that a little harder to get into – am I reading hard tech-in-space or ancient gods and prophecies? Threading my way between the two takes a little more effort. Not that that’s a bad thing, but the merger of two can be challenging. I’m also a touch ambivalent about winged humans because the mechanics of that are rarely truly examined. They’d all have [...]

    • I loved Skythane, the first book in this series, so I was very keen to read Lander. It was well worth the wait. However, I would recommend reading book one first as this carries on from where that left off. One thing I always know I’m going to get from this author is detailed, well-thought-out, world building, and he delivers that, and more, in Lander. I appreciated that there were consequences for these two worlds reunifying such as storms and landscapes changing, which made it feel much more [...]

    • Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book 2 in the Oberon Cycle, and you really REALLY must read book one, Skythane, first. These are NOT stand alones! What they are though, is brilliant! Reeling from their discoveries that they are not who they thought they were, Xander and Jameson thought they had fulfilled their prophecy, but it seems there is more in store for these two, as joining the worlds of Oberon and Titania has bought them more than they [...]

    • I have only read a hand full of Sci-Fi books. I tend to lean more toward the paranormal genre. So I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Skythane. I took a chance and requested an ARC copy. I was completely hooked. I had some questions at the end of the book and was glad that I had the next one to follow it up with. In the first book, we meet Quince. I love her strength and tenacity. It thrills me beyond belief when authors write strong female characters. That woman has a plan and the brass to ac [...]

    • As soon as I opened this story, I was sunk back into the world this author has created. His descriptions are vivid, you see the lighting strikes, you feel the thunder claps. You feel the rising tensions among the characters. You’re pulled into the chaos and turmoil the people and the land are going through. This is a truly epic sci-fi thriller with some fantasy and romance thrown in. And is so well written, you don’t want to stop reading this until you reach the end.Lander is book two in the [...]

    • The scene was set in Book 1: Skythane, and the danger with second books is that the plot can fall a little flat, but that is not the case here. Wisely, the author has created another world out of the old one, with the occupants of Oberon and Titania having to get used to their new reality.Not everyone is happy with this new world order, and conflicts from the last book rear their ugly heads. The good news is that Quince makes a discovery laced with tragedy, and Xander and Jameson’s fledging re [...]

    • 4.5 Stars!Lander is book 2 in The Oberon Cycle series and it can't be read as a standalone, plus truly, book 1 was so good, you don't want to miss out on it.Xander and Jameson are trying to navigate through their fledgling relationship but trouble is never far away. Between Xander's ex returning and wanting him back, the discovery that Xander and Jameson's feelings might be induced by a drug and enemies getting closer than they'd like, they have their hands full. Will their love be strong enough [...]

    • In the sequel to Skythane, Lander, we see the continuation of the story of Jameson Havercamp - an offworlder who was really a Skythane Prince of the House of the Sun - and Xander Kinnson, Skythane King of the House of the Moon. The two man were able to work together and reunify the two half planets of Oberon and Titania, spinning them back together in an alternate universe. But reunification wasn't easy and the planet, Erro, is dealing with being put back together in the form of massive storms, [...]

    • “I am a key. After the world shifted, I came back here.”Can I give this more then 5 Stars?I was immediately transported back into the world of Xander and Jameson.I thoroughly enjoyed the first book as it mainly focused on just the two “men” and the mission at hand.Lander was so much more. So many lives were intertwined with Xander and Jameson. All the emotions, angst, love, and mistrust between the Skythane's themselves and with the Landers was powerful and moving.Unfortunately with grea [...]

    • 4.5 Stars - First and foremost, you absolutely must read Skythane before you read Lander. You need to know where Xander and Jameson began, how and why they reunified Oberon and Titania together, and all the potential angst that will cause. Because Lander is chock full of all angst, hope, anger, love, frustration, (unwanted) blasts from the past, and the key—of course 🙂The world building is flawless. The chemistry (which may well be chemically induced) is a low simmer beneath all the other m [...]

    • If you're anything like me the end of Skythane left you thinking 'OH S--T!' (If you haven't read Skythane you really really should.) I came into this book wondering how Xander and Jameson were going to deal with the reappearance of Alix, how were they going to handle their new destinies. I was especially keen on finding out how Jameson was deal because in book one he's world wasn't just turned upside down it was completely obliterated. All I can say is that I was in no way disappointed, Lander w [...]

    • this is the second book in this series and you must read Skythane book one to have a chance of understanding where this coming from and going. After saying that, this book is even more action filled and intense than the first. Well written and full of interesting characters although there were a couple of bad guys I could have lived without. If you are a SCi-fi fantasy fan you'll enjoy this book if you are an LGBTQA fan you will enjoy this book.An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest revie [...]

    • A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words ReviewRating 5 stars out of 5for the full review visit wp/p220KL-cUuFrom that review: " We emerge into the world of Lander just as the reunification of the two worlds ends  and start to see its shocking results upon the lands, Skythane and Lander kingdoms, even Obercorp itself.  All is chaos, more so brought on by the climatic and environmental changes wrought by the collapse of the atmosphere that separated the two halves."For all our reviews, author inter [...]

    • A stunning sequelAwesome, I am thrilled by this story. Picking up where the events in Skythane left off we get to see more of the amazing world and characters as they struggle against the evil OberCorps. Slip into your wings and soar into an amazing adventure.

    • Sci fiA genre that I have not read very much, but after reading Skythane I received an ARC of Lander and now I'm hooked. Beautiful written a very enjoyable and loved addition to my library

    • what the hell. this series just keeps getting better and better. i still love xander and jameson, but alix can go f@#$ himself. lol some action, chaos and angstjust the right amount. again, i'm glad i found this author. def would recommend.

    • After finishing Skythane, I was a bit skeptical of whether I would enjoy Lander. There is just so much going on in the story. The plot is heavy. Now that I finished Lander, I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK! I am enthralled. The action, the love story between Xander and Jamie, the complex relationships that exist between the different characters, gives the series depth and keeps you on the edge of your seat.Skythane set the stage for the war and the debacles that came up in Lander. We now have mor [...]
