SCI-FI CORNER: GALACTIC FOOTBALL LEAGUE!

SCI-FI CORNER: GALACTIC FOOTBALL LEAGUE!

SCOTT SIGLER

THE ROOKIE ~ $2.99

Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, The Rookie is a story combining the intense gridiron action of "Any Given Sunday" with the space opera style of "Star Wars" and the criminal underworld of "The Godfather."

Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assassinated.

Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy who has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."
THE STARTER ~ $2.99

The Starter is the sequel to The Rookie, a hard-hitting, bone-crunching YA sports/scifi novel described as "The Blindside" meets "Star Wars" meets "The Godfather."

The Starter is a star-spanning coming-of-age space opera combined with the gritty world of organized crime, all set against a backdrop of a far-future professional football league.

In The Rookie, 19-year-old rookie quarterback Quentin Barnes overcame his racism and unified his team. He led the Ionath Krakens to a lower-tier championship, a championship that earned them promotion into the meat grinder known as "Tier One."

Now, he and his teammates have to compete against the greatest football teams ever assembled and do far more than just survive each game. As he rebuilds the team in his own image, Quentin's true quest for a Tier One championship begins.
