Michael Z. Williamson
  • Greetings, and welcome to my site.

    I am THE Michael Z. Williamson. There are no others, and there are a great many people thankful for that fact.

    I'm a writer with an eclectic body of work. That means I've never pinned myself down to one genre. I apologize to the marketing people, because I know they hate that and I hate to see them cry. It also makes it hard to categorize my works for my bibliography. However, subjects I've written in do include politics, firearms, the military, science fiction, military fiction, fantasy, humor and nonfiction. Most of my articles aren't cataloged--there are too many.

    If you came searching the web for me, welcome! I appreciate the interest and support. Look around, and feel free to email me. I appreciate feedback on my work. I especially appreciate useful negative feedback--I prefer honest criticism to ego-stroking. I learn more from it.

    This site is in a constant state of upgrade -- I prefer to spend my time writing, and I believe my readers do, too. If you find any glaring errors, do please let me or my webninja know.

    Angeleyes Released!

    This is a very occasional update on a new book release. Angeleyes is out in hardcover and electronic formats, and Audible. This stands alone in the Freehold universe--you do not need to read Freehold or The Weapon, as all three happen in the same timeframe.

    Angie Kaneshiro never planned to be a spy. She was a veteran of the Freehold Forces of Grainne, and was now a tramp freighter crew-woman who hadnít set foot on the dirt of a world in ten years. Angie was free, and that was the way she liked it.

    Then the war with Earth started. One thing Angie knew was human space. She knew where the UN troops garrisoned, the methods they used to scan and chip their own to control them. Even better, she had a mental map of the access conduits, the dive bars, and the make-out cubbies people used to get around restrictions.

    The UN forces may hold most of the stations, the docks, and the jump points, but now the Freehold of Grainne has its own lethal weapon. The Intelligence branch sends a freighter crewed with Blazers, special forces troops. All Angie has to do is lead them through the holes. Responsibility for the explosions and wreckage will be theirs. But war is complicated, and even the most unwilling of heroes can be forged in its crucible.

    PLEASE NOTE: This novel has more adult content than my previous ones. Please be advised if this concerns you.

    I expect to have three or more books out next year.

    Enjoy the holidays, and thanks for your ongoing support.
