Answer an Easy Question, Win a Book

I’m not going to blog about politics on this page at all, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Deputy AG in the Trump administration, Rod Rosenstein, is married to a genuine Barsoomian (his wife is former US attorney Lisa Barsoomian)!

His daughters, who live in my hometown of Bethesda, Maryland, are therefore the first identified half-Earthling, half-Barsoomian since Tara and Cathoris, back in the 19th century.

A free copy of my first two “Watt O’Hugh” novels, in either paperback or Kindle (your choice!), to the first 3 of you who can correctly explain what I’m talking about. (And no, I don’t pretend that this is the most difficult question in the world.) Email me at
