Author Biography

I write as a hobby and hope to entertain. This book came about while watching the 33rd ad for pizza on TV. I realize the connection is tenuous but ...
I am retired as a teacher and from the military. My interest in writing span from Southern Fiction, to high tech, to political satire and alternate history. I enjoy all of them and hope that you can too.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Captain V.W. and the Red Baron is a work of fiction in the subgenres of historical, wartime, time travel and science fiction, and was penned by author James Huber. This is an entertaining quick read with plenty of historical intrigue and flavor, set amongst the incredible pilots who took to the skies to do battle during World War 1. When Captain V.W. is on a routine delivery, a period of inclement weather forces him and his crew to land on a small strip of land in the countryside. When they discover that they have landed in a different time period entirely, things get really interesting.

Readers who like a short, conceptual tale that gets right to the meat without too much development are sure to enjoy this brief and interesting excursion with author James Huber. True to the author’s style, brevity brings us right into the moment as planes fly left and right. I very much enjoyed the colorful depictions of the Flying Circus and the historically accurate setting for the action to take place. Both the Captain and the Baron give glimpses of becoming really excellent characters in a fuller story, but for now, we are introduced to their charms through some pithy dialogue and fun situations. What results is a conceptually strong quick read that is sure to spark the imagination. Overall, Captain V.W. and the Red Baron will suit relaxed readers looking for a short and fun time travel tale.
