Response to Bullies


Fight the Panic, your natural response,
Don’t give in, not a single ounce,
Keep control. Use your head.
Just do the right thing instead.

Fight or flight come naturally,
Loss of reason will make you flee.
Keep cool head, slow things down,
Think it through, and stand your ground.

Showing fear is not the way,
To save yourself from the fray.
Gather those who cower down,
To stand with you against the clown.

For bullies know instinctively,
They can’t stand up to you and me,
When we link arms and show our might,
Their bluster withers at the sight.

Fast-paced military science fiction, I was very impressed that this is a first novel for Mr. Waugh. The author has really done his homework, as he has worked with many concepts of science, history, anthropology, space travel and military technology in this book. The story “reads” very well, editing is good, I only found 3 or 4 instances where the wrong word was used or misspelled. I really like the chapter structure and the 3 main story lines that are going on (two alien ones, and one human). I can’t wait to get the next installment of this story–hope it comes soon.
Nu Book 1 – The Esss Advance is available via this link on ==> Amazon.

    1. Thanks. You also might like my favorite quote from the SciFi novel Dune on Fear:
      “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
