Happy 2016, all! This is my first post of the new year, and I find it appropriate that it’s spotlighting not only a new book release, but one of my favorite authors as well. ANDDDDDDDD I happen to be the editor for this new edition of: Palindrome 656. 😉
If you don’t recall, or if you’re new here, I hosted C.F. Waller, author of Free Dive, in this previous post. I am a huge fan of his work and had the privilege of editing Free Dive when Cosby Media Productions acquired it. You can grab a copy of Free Dive by clicking HERE. I actually bought a copy for my grandma for Christmas (she reads cool books, obvi).
But I digress. Today’s post is about the latest and greatest release from Waller: Palindrome 656. Below is everything you need to know about this book.

When a ghost ship turns up in orbit after a half decade of silence, the powers that be are going to want answers. And when you are the only person still breathing, you can expect an interrogation. Hannah, the Empire’s leading lady of counter-intelligence, is about to go head to head with the Union’s best interrogators in a life or death battle to find the answers to some seemingly simple questions. As she decides what to answer and what to leave out, none of the stories she is about to share will paint her in a positive light, but in her case, they rarely do. It’s said that the “winners” write the history books, and while the Union continues to demand answers, it seems Hannah, whose greatest victory is managing to stay alive, is the only one holding a pen.

About C.F. Waller
Charles published his first science fiction novel at age forty-seven, after a flight on an ill-fated commercial airliner over the Atlantic Ocean, that nearly became an episode of Why Planes Crash. This experience illustrated for him firsthand that writing about exotic or dangerous locales was safer than traveling to them. Since then, he likes to think his meticulous research and storytelling gives readers a clear sense of their grandeur, without the inherent risk of flying.
After narrowly escaping the academic death-grip of several universities, Charles worked in nightclubs, took a turn as a new car salesman, and also as a hurricane shutter engineer. His favorite authors include Oscar Wilde, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., and Michael Crichton. The latter being especially close to his heart, as Crichton epitomizes the techno-thriller genre and and the failure of humans to interact with technology.
Though he will forever be a Midwestern boy at heart, he now lives on the gulf coast of Florida with his wife, Tina, and one fuzzy feline companion. If he’s not working on a new novel, you can find him volunteering at church, playing overly competitive Yahtzee with his spouse, or indulging in an unhealthy addiction to competitive cooking shows on television.
