My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

The Ice Genius

When William Harper Littlejohn unearths a shadowy figure transfixed in ice, the renowned archeologist understands that he has made the most momentous discovery of his brilliant career. For inscribed over the frozen form is this chilling warning: “IF I STILL LIVED, MANKIND WOULD TREMBLE!” Who is this monster? Why does his name strike terror into the hearts of brave men? Can even Doc Savage control him once he breaks free of his icy tomb? From the Gobi Desert to war-torn Free China, the Man of Bronze and his fighting crew battle a threat so terrifying that it could change the course of human history….

William Harper Littlejohn is in Mongolia digging for fossils when he discovers an ice cave, and inside the body of a man entombed within the ice. An inscription frightens him, and he immediately sends a message to Doc Savage in New York. The message will bring Doc and his aides – along with Cadwiller Olden - on a perilous adventure that sets the world on fire. The resurrection of the man in the ice starts a wave of killing by a Mongol horde that takes Johnny to the brink of madness. Will Doc Savage be able to stop the terror that Johnny Littlejohn has released upon China?

This is another great adventure of the Man of Bronze in an epic tale that’s almost too big even for Doc Savage and his five aides. Before it’s done thousands will be slaughtered, and the world immersed in a World War. Will Murray’s creative writing continues to bring exciting adventures of Doc Savage into a new generation of readers, and another great cover by Joe DeVito graces the cover of “The Ice Genius”. Highly recommended.
