My New Novel


"The Shadow of Olympus"  has a new revision as of May of 2018, from Outskirts Press of Parker, Colorado.  In an e-mail to the author, Ms. Lisa Connor, an employ of that company, wrote: "You have a terrific writing style!  I can tell that you have done much planning and preparation in crafting your work..."  "Right from the start your plot was very engaging..." "Your characters are lifelike...and I love... feeling like I know them..." etc.  So in late June, 2018, e-mail to purchase your copy.  Emmett M. Smith, author.  


InnocentHALO! I'm happy for you that you have a novel published,but honnestly I don't have the time to read. I'm sure it's very interresting,though.fromTOM;Wink 


Congrats!!  My wife publishes thru Author House as well, so I'll be ordering it directly from them.  I look forward to reading it!!  Cool


Good first book. this guy could be the next Michael Chrichton.


No, this is Emmett M. Smith the chess player.


  A small group of human colonists on Mars accidentally make a discovery that will change the course of human history.  Meanwhile on Earth, a war begins that will endanger humanity's outposts on Mars and Luna.  To see how these colonists attempt to cope with the new situations (and to learn if they are successful), read "The Shadow of Olympus."  Order it  from Barnes and Noble's website in late June of 2018; or order it directly from the publisher at: starting from the same date. 


Thank you for message and information.


I am not normally into Sci Fi. (I do like Dr Who though) Gothic horor is more my thing. But..for you!..I will be a convert and I will try to get your book. I have heard of you..I think. Thank you for bothering to look at my art.

The re-editing of "The Shadow of Olympus" took three times longer than I had expected, but the book is back on the market.   See it on and ignore the old "pink" edition (which somebody forgot to delete). The price beside the "purple" edition is the correct one.  The Author.


Thanks for alerting me to your new novel. I'll look into this.



This book is not at my library.Frown




I am a huge sci-fi fantacy fan, but need things to calm down a little... I teach 6,7 and 8th grade reading, coach chess and go to school (married w/two kids)...

But will check it out.

Smooth sailing in all your games,



I'll look for it- I'm something of a fossil, myself. I like R.A. Lafferty, but nobody even remembrs him.:(  Jack
