“The Cold War Meets The X-Men”

2016-04 final cover MJ12Michael Martinez’s MAJESTIC 12: INCEPTION released earlier this month and look at this amazing praise and publicity rolling in!

The Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog called it, “high-octane action!”

Kirkus listed it as a top Supernatural Thriller!

Michael was asked to talk about “Writing About Racism and Sexism in Historical Fantasy” on the prestigious Alternate History Weekly Update.

The Qwillery gave MJ-12 this amazing review, “With MJ-12 Inception, Martinez weaves an intense tale of patriotism, Cold War politics, the U.S. spy network, and the nuances of human relationships which I simply couldn’t put down.”

Later that same week, Michael was a guest on Chuck Wendig’s prestigious Terrible Minds blog talking about taking chances in his writing.

GeekDad says, “Martinez has me hooked!”

Michael wrote an article on how to open a great story at the famous Fiction University.

Harry Turtledove, the New York Times bestselling author of GUNS OF THE SOUTH said, “It’s a smart look at a Cold War in many ways even colder and scarier and deadlier than the one we barely survived.”

Michael Underwood, author of the GEEKOMANCY and GENRENAUTS series said, “X-Men meets Mission: Impossible, with bonus alt-history speculation and filled with compelling, well-rounded characters.”
