I became hooked on this amazing,
multi-award-winning time-travel series as soon as I read book one, BAD LOVE
STRIKES. Now it’s possible to buy the whole series as a box set – what could be
What’s so special about this series? Well,
not only has its author, Kevin L. Schewe MD, got a great imagination, but also the
books are historically accurate, which I found really enhanced my enjoyment
whilst reading them. However, this author has gone one step further, as the piece-de-resistance
is that he has provided soundtracks to accompany each of the books, with hit
songs from the 1960’s and 70’s guaranteed to get your feet tapping, whatever
Each book happily stands-alone as a
complete adventure, however, when you read the whole series, you discover there
are storylines which run throughout. There are some additions to the gang as
the books progress, as well as danger, adventure, and excitement, not
forgetting the KGB spies, and a touch of romance…
Now I’ve wetted your lips, it’s for some
tasters… BAD LOVE STRIKES is the first book, and it is here we are introduced
to the Bad Love Gang, a group of teenagers from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, who in1974
discover a tunnel which leads them to the White Hole Project. This project was
a time machine invented by Einstein at President Roosevelt’s request. After learning
how to use it, they go back in time to 1944 where they witness first-hand WWII
and the plight of the holocaust victims, and their adventures begin.
It is New Year’s Eve 1975 when book two, BAD
LOVE TIGERS begins. This time the gang’s mission is to try to uphold the
secrets of Area 51 and the answer to the eternal question, “Have aliens ever
Then in book three, BAD LOVE BEYOND they
go out of this world to another galaxy, visiting Planet Azure, Earth’s sister planet.
There, the gang not only help their alien friends the Blue Azurians, but also
find a cure for cancer.
The final book in the box set, BAD LOVE
MEDICINE finds the gang torn. They are tasked to change history in two ways,
firstly by saving a gang members loved one from cancer, but also at the special
request of Winston Churchill to stop Hitler and the Nazis from creating their
own time machine.
Kevin L. Schewe MD, the author of this
multi-award-winning series, is also a board-certified cancer specialist
practicing radiation oncology for over 30 years, and a successful entrepreneur.
His sister, who shares his love of time travel stories fought and survived
cancer, she was his motivation behind the writing of his first book, and I for
one am very pleased he did, and that he continued with this excellent series.
Lovers of time travel are in for a real treat with this exciting box set. Highly recommended!
A fantastic blend of science-fiction, time travel and history!
I have been a fan of the Bad Love Gang since the first book Bad Love Strikes. This is author, Kevin L. Schewe MD, FACRO’s fourth book in the series, and the cleverly written novels span decades and indeed take his readers to other worlds. I have to say straight away that the stories are all connected as a series, however they stand-alone very successfully.
The Bad Love Gang’s original story was set in 1974 and tells of their discovery of the “White Hole Project” a time machine made by Einstein on the orders of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. However, this, as they say is only the beginning…
The following two books take the gang on various adventures back in time, and indeed to another world, Planet Azur. And, it is the link to this planet, a “sister” to Earth, which is the reason for the Azurians mining the exotic matter, essential to their planet, in The Black Forest, southwest Germany, in November 1941. Where their presence was discovered by sergeant major Klaus Richter, a rising star in the Waffen-SS, who was tasked with leading a small squad of Nazi Waffen-SS soldiers to investigate “strange lights” in the Black Forest.
Klaus Richter’s discovery of the Azurian spaceship, and the exotic matter, led to Adolph Hitler instructing Gunther Brandt, the brilliant theoretical and quantum mechanics physicist work to build his own time machine, named the ”Black Hole Project.” This of course could not be allowed to happen!
This book, has a really clever playlist of music for the stories, each perfect for the time and events which are taking place. The adventures are so exciting! From the gangs continuing battle in 1975, with the Russian spy Borya Krovopuskov, and his wife, as they desperately attempt to get their children back at any costs, to the gang going over to England during WWII. There in London, half the gang go to Churchill’s office as they plan to stop Hitler, whilst the others leave for Liverpool in desperate search to find Meatball’s (one of the gang’s nickname) love, Hannah Lieb.
This award winning author can really tell a wonderful tale, taking his readers on unbelievable adventures with The Bad Love Gang. “Live dangerously, have fun, don’t die!” is their motto, in this book we are to discover, this is a close call. Their missions are wide and varied, all with the best intentions, yet in this story the question is asked. Is it truly possible to go back into the past without changing the future?
I highly recommend this book for lovers of time travel, science fiction, and history.

Your mind’s your limit, when you shop at the Allmart store!
This incredible comedy satire is definitely the product of a
whacky mind! The author’s style of writing immediately made me think of the
late Douglas Adams, and his ‘Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.’
Phil Granchi’s protagonist, Ted Kojwaclczsziziek, is
literally taken on a rollercoaster ride through AllMart, the brainchild of genius
entrepreneur McAlsteinetti. Ted’s job is to infiltrate AllMart with a team of
special-forces operatives who fear the CEO has become unhinged, but what they
discover inside transcends belief.
What an experience this book is, yes an experience, because
a ‘read’ somehow doesn’t do it justice. Right from the first page we are thrown
into a zany world, wacky, and at first, it seems unreal, science-fiction and
fantasy. Indeed a lot of it is, however, for those who hang on for grim death,
and stay the course, it is so much more. Because weaved into this incredible
comedy satire, if we look carefully, there’s the history of the superstore, the
hypermarket, and dare I say, those enormous corporations who seem at times to
be taking over the world.
Oh yes, Allmart, like those mega giants we all know are out
there, it started small, a humble store servicing the community, offering homes
and work for the locals. It was popular, supported – but then somehow it just
grew, and grew, and grew, until it took over the whole area. In time it became
the world’s largest chain of discount stores.
The reader can see for themselves the amazing bargains, the
sales gimmicks, clever marketing, those offers you just can’t resist, so much
so that you forget about the credit card maxing out, you just get another one! Lost
in the fantasy world of having what you want, when you want, everything is
possible, doesn’t that sound magical? However, the possibilities don’t stop
there, what happens when the world is not enough, well…
Join the author for the experience of a life time, meet
people whose lifestyles may ring a bell, see for yourself the wonderful offers
available in this unique book. If you don’t believe me why not take a look at
the Allmartstores website, yes it’s there, put the name in your search engine,
you’ll see what I mean.
To say that this book is cleverly written is an understatement, it is truly a work of art, a comedy satire, blended with science-fiction and fantasy, guaranteed to take you on the adventure of a lifetime. Highly recommended!
About the Author:
Phil Granchi has spent most of his life avoiding novel writing. His many distractions have included collecting fossils in Antarctica, performing a completely improvised university lecture at comedy festivals around the world, working as a freelance graphic artist in direct marketing agencies and producing online educational games for a now-defunct dotcom startup. He’s now a practicing radiologist in rural northern California. He enjoys spending time in the wilderness with his wife, Melissa Granchi, his favorite travel companion.
About the Book:
The CEO of AllMart, the world’s largest chain of discount stores, has become unhinged and the feds send a team of ultra-deep special forces to stop him. This gritty, genre-bashing, darkly-comic dystopian/sci-fi/thriller mashup takes you on a hallucinogenic carnival ride through the company’s flagship store that covers an ever-expanding swath of southern Ohio. Told through the horrified eyes of K, an office temp who has accidentally been recruited for his “special skills,” Mart of Darkness pits the team against feral live-in shoppers, morality-free executives and quantum technology that threatens to collapse the global economy. K is in way over his head and can’t find a way out. Join him as he crosses the Videocean, passes through the Great Gates of Giardiniera and gains a lasting appreciation for early Native American hunting practices. Chug an energy drink, don’t expect cell phone service inside, and climb on for the ride!
An exciting, historically accurate, time travel adventure.
Kevin Schewe’s ‘Bad Love Series’ of science fiction
adventures take storytelling to the next level. This talented author not only transports
his readers on exciting adventures through time, which are historically
accurate, but he also enhances their enjoyment by suggesting a sound track
list. Throughout the book there are references to these songs which evoke
wonderful memories for the characters, and fit into the plot brilliantly.
The main protagonists are the Bad Love Gang who live up to
their motto ‘Live dangerously, have fun, don’t die.’ They are all described in
the front of the book and this is where the readers discover their nicknames, and
the reasons behind them. As the series has progressed the gang has grown, and
between them they have a wide expanse of knowledge and skills, which prove
invaluable during their escapades. However, the gang are hunted by spies Boris
and Christine Krovopuskov, who will stop at nothing to learn the secrets of The
White Hole Project (time machine) for Mother Russia, killing without compassion
anyone who gets in their way!
As Bad Love Beyond begins, the gang find themselves invited
yet again to The White House, Oval Office. However, although only ten weeks
have passed since their last meeting with President Gerald R. Ford for the
gang, it has been thirty years for the President. Those years between have
taught him to respect the advice of the gang, and he reads them extracts from
The Book of Presidents about their last visit, and events which happened in
1945 (story told in Bad Love Tigers, Book 2 in the series.) They talk about an imminent
NASA mission in the planning, and then Bubble Butt reveals he has an idea for a
secret plan to use The White Hole Project to go into the future. It hinges on
going back in time to WW11, when the gang were sent on a mission to keep the
Area 51 Project, and its secrets in America’s hands. It was on this adventure that
they saw the alien Blue Nova One, he believes he can go back, re-live the time,
and seize the moment to explore the future.
It’s a success! The gang are transported to the beautiful
planet Azure, 11.5 billion light years from Earth, and find the planet, how it
has evolved, its people, and their technology fascinating. Good relations are
established. However they soon discover that the Queen of Azur is worried, an
environmental disaster is set to destroy the Republic of Azure, a distant
island nation, however, distrust has arisen between the peoples, can the Bad
Love Gang heal the rift, help, and avert disaster? Join the gang as they battle
bravely against adversity, facing danger and death in their quest to save the
planet, and the people of the Republic of Azure.
Vividly detailed, and historically accurate, this author
sends his readers on an unforgettable rollercoaster of a time travel story, guaranteed,
I believe, to rival the classic ‘The Time Machine’ by H. G. Wells. Highly
About the Author:
Kevin L. Schewe, MD, FACRO, is the proud father of two daughters (Ashley and Christie) and two granddaughters (Gracie and Olivia). He is a native of St. Louis, Missouri and now makes his home in the mile-high city of Denver, Colorado. He is a board-certified cancer specialist who has been in the private practice of radiation oncology for 32 years. He continues to practice medicine as the Medical Director of Radiation Oncology for Alliance Cancer Care Colorado at Red Rocks in Golden, Colorado. He is an entrepreneur, having founded a cosmetics company called Elite Therapeutics and Bad Love Cosmetics Company, LLC. He also serves as Chairman of the Board of a small, publicly-traded, renewable, green energy and animal feed company called VIASPACE, Inc., which recently acquired Elite Therapeutics and Bad Love Cosmetics, LLC.
The first Sunday of June every year is National Cancer Survivor’s Day. Dr. Schewe co-chairs a yearly celebration of National Cancer Survivor’s Day at the Red Rocks Medical Center in Golden, Colorado. Every year, he writes a skit that he and the local doctors perform in front of the Survivor’s Day crowd. The skit always has a musical theme from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, or one of various Hollywood themes. The doctors, dressed in costumes for their parts, ask questions or pose dilemmas to each other. The answers to those questions or dilemmas are clips from songs, which the doctors lip sync and dance to in front of the crowd. Everyone dances together at the end of the skit. It is great fun and an uplifting celebration of survival for the cancer patients, their families, and loved ones.
Back from their mission as the Bad Love Tigers to secure the secrets of Area 51 and the White Hole Project, the Bad Love Gang are summoned to the Oval Office by President Gerald Ford. They receive his blessing to use the White Hole Project to attempt intergalactic space travel in search of the cure for Hannah Lieb’s breast cancer. But Ford warns them that their arch-enemy, Russian KGB super-agent Borya Krovopuskov, remains at large and a constant threat. Fighting off the KGB and Krovopuskov, the group sets a trap for him as they plan to return to Area 51 in 1942 using the White Hole. They reconnect with their alien friend, Blue Nova One, on Earth’s sister planet, Azur, 11.5 billion light years away. The Blue Azurians are facing a dire shortage of blue exotic matter and the Republic of Azur is facing a volcanic extinction event of historic proportions. The Bad Love Gang must deal with dinosaurs, the forces of nature, the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle and alien politics in their race to get the cure for Hannah. Can they do it?
An outstanding work of science fiction tantalisingly laced
This book is not only a wonderfully exciting science fiction
story, it is an experience, which takes you back in time, with adventure,
historically accurate facts, and probably most uniquely by the author
suggesting sound tracks to listen to whilst reading it.
Set in 1974, it tells of the first adventure of the “Bad
Love Gang,” a group of teenagers with the world at their feet, itching for
adventure, and the author kindly invites you to join them for the duration of
Back in October 1939, Albert Einstein had warned President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, that Nazi Germany was trying to make an atomic bomb, and
urged him to ensure that America made one first. Because of Einstein’s advice,
but just in case this didn’t happen, the President decided to set in place a
backup plan, and in 1942 he instructed Einstein to make a time machine, code
named “White Hole Project.”
This project steeped in secrecy, is lost in time, lying
quietly dormant, that is until one of the Bad Love Gangs summer jaunts leads
them to discover it. The discovery and their resulting actions unleash a chain
of events which changes them, and the lives of others in ways they could never
The historical accuracy of this story makes it stand out
above other science fiction stories, elevating it from great to outstanding in
my opinion. The gang has a clear mission – to save the Jews and Gypsies at
Chelmno extermination camp from the Holocaust. They use the machine to travel
back thirty years to Chelmno in Poland, which was the first place that the
Nazi’s gassed the Jews and Gypsies in their WWII genocide. In embracing the
gang’s experiences, the reader, through the vividly descriptive writing of this
talented author, is transported back through time, into WWII. As the story
unravels and the tension mounts, our senses are aroused so much so that it is
easy to imagine you are there, amongst the sights, sounds and horrors of this
time. The question is, as the engines of the U.S. Air Force B-17 bomber, known
as “The Phantom Fortress,” drone in your ears, as it flies its rescue mission
over occupied territories, will you as a fly on the wall member of the gang
succeed in your quest, and if you do, and you survive, will you all be able to
return to 1974?
The Bad Love Gang is the author’s debut novel, it has an amazing storyline, which really draws the reader in, and listening to the sounds tracks suggested is something which I highly recommend. A real gem which stands out as a shining example of excellent storytelling. I look really look forward to their next adventure.
About the Book:
In October 1939, Albert Einstein warns President Franklin D. Roosevelt that Nazi Germany is actively pursuing an atomic bomb and urges him to make sure that the United States develops the bomb first. Roosevelt heeds the warning and launches the “Manhattan Project” in June 1942. In October 1942, Roosevelt tells Einstein that prudence calls for the U.S. to have a back-up plan to the Manhattan Project in case Hitler gets the bomb first. Roosevelt commissions Einstein to secretly construct a usable time travel machine code-named the “White Hole Project.” In June 1974, an adventurous group of teenage friends, who call themselves the “Bad Love Gang,” discover a tunnel leading to the White Hole Project. They learn how to use the time machine and become the first known humans to travel back in time and return. Their mission is to save Jews and Gypsies from the Holocaust in November 1944 by using a U.S. Air Force B-17 bomber that was known as “The Phantom Fortress.” Adventurous and a very surprise ending!

He backpacked across Asia, I hiked to Annapurna base camp from Pokhara, went to the Festival of the Tooth in the mountains of Sri Lanka, and visited ashrams in India. When he married his wife Janet, they spent their honeymoon in Tibet. In Africa, they walked with the Masai, hiked the jungles of Rwanda to see the silverback gorillas, had giraffes feeding at their window in Kenya, walked the Township district of Cape-town with a local healer, and spent time with the isolated and primitive Himba tribe. In the northern territories of Australia, they were serenaded by an Aboriginal didgeridoo player on a hillside as a thunder storm moved across the plain below.

I love the ‘Time Traveler’ series of stories, however, this book can stand alone. The bond between father and son is wonderful, and the clever links between time, events and historical figures make it not only an enjoyable book to read, but also very interesting.

This fast paced fantasy story opens with Rosie, hunting in her Uncle Hugo’s cellar at Haston Manor. It’s creepy down there, but she is on a mission, she’s searching for a family heirloom, a locket handed down through her mother’s line. Why? Because her mother told her in a letter given to her by Uncle Hugo on her 14th birthday, that the locket holds special powers, and she should ‘accept her fate,’ but what does that mean?
Rosie is soon to discover that her destiny lies before her, and that the locket is not the only legacy which is handed down from mother to daughter. Her uncle often fondly tells her that her mother used to see goblins and demons hiding in the grounds, strange creatures, just like she has started seeing. However, it is not until she loses a very special bracelet that her search to find it takes her through a magical portal into another place, Mind Space, and she realises that the creatures really do exist…
Mind Space is a mysterious realm which is inhabited by strange and mythical creatures. She and three friends, (who are transported with her by accident) find themselves trapped there until they can complete their quest. It is a land in torment, torn apart by the fierce angel wars between the Knights of Lousã and the Dark Angel and his demons.
This exciting adventure follows the brave friends’ quest through this strange land, where they find themselves fighting against evil side by side with strange creatures and a fire breathing dragon.
Who will win the angel wars?
Will Rosie find her bracelet, and if she does, how do they return to their time?
The answers all lie within the pages of this fantastic fantasy story which will enthral young adults of both sexes. However, not only is this an exciting story, but it also demonstrates the incredible powers of true friendship and loyalty, and the comradeship which can be shared.
I thoroughly enjoyed this thrilling story and look forward to reading its sequel.
About the Author: I was born while enemy aircraft bombed London, spent some of my childhood amidst the wretchedness of post-war Austria, then with siblings and mother, followed my military father across the world. At the age of 15 I joined the British Army and attended the apprenticeship college at Harrogate, then the Royal School of Military Engineering. At 17 I passed selection for the Paras serving in the Gulf and Europe. Afterwards, running my own electronic and physical protection company came easily and gave insider knowledge for my crime thrillers The Unseen, The Uncounted and The Unwanted. Now a father and grandfather, in parallel to these crime thrillers, I have ventured into the action/fantasy world of the young reader aged 12+16. The Mind Traveller is the first of a series where Rosie adventures deep into the unchartered universe of Mind Space. The Witch’s Shadow second in the series will be published on the 5th of June. As a fulltime writer I live between the UK, Portugal and Ireland.
About the Book: When Rosie inherits a Mind Traveller’s locket from her mother she is transported to Mind Space and thrown into the angel wars. With help from Elissa of the Special Angel Services, the SAS and three village boys who have been accidently transported with her, she joins with the Knights of Lousã in battle against Hisdrillo the Dark Angel and his Grolack tree monsters. Rosie is warned that if the sand in her locket runs out, she and her pals will be trapped forever in Mind Space. When Grolacks invade the castle, Rosie and friends are sent to wake the feared Dragon Queen and ask for her help. Together they fight the Grolacks but her friends are captured and the dragon killed. With sand in the timer nearly gone all seems lost, except Rosie’s will and determination.. Mind Space is where you are encapsulated when time future rolls into time past. A place somewhere in the infinite centre of time change, a place that must exist yet cannot exist.
This is the second book in the Eve Project series, and at the beginning, we go back briefly to before book one ‘Machines of the Little People’ to when Kate and Ben were children, and Kate found the wishing stone. It seemed magical, and most of the wishes they made came true, however, years later, as adults, with Kate dying, Ben, Kate and her husband Roger made the last wish they would on it, one which thousands of people through time, before, and since have made.
Book two opens with Ben, who suffers from B.C.E.D (Bio-chemical electrical discharge) which means he produces too much electricity and can’t be allowed near electrical instruments etc., discovering that the inhibitors which Roger, his impossibly brilliant scientist brother-in-law designed for him are now failing…
In desperation, Ben agrees to go with Roger to the Warwick Facility, a top secret special scientific research centre. Roger reassures him that they will be able to help him, however, once inside, the Roger Ben now sees bears no resemblance to his brother-in-law.
What would you do for love?
“Anything!” is the common response.
What has Roger done…?
This is a great science fiction story, which follows on nicely from The Eve Project: Book 1, Machines of the Little People, however could easily be read as a stand-alone.
It has it all for science fiction fans, top secret scientific projects, a great storyline, twists and turns round every corner, yet, at its very core lies, dare I say it, a love story.
It has a great finish, however, at the end, all I wanted to know from the author – is there is another book in the series coming?
About the Author: I was raised pretty much the same as everyone else… devoted mother, strict father and all the imaginary friends I could conjure. Not that I wasn’t friendly, I just wasn’t “people orientated”. Maybe I lived in my head way more than I should have, maybe not. I liked machines more than people, at least I did until I met my wife.
The first thing I can remember writing was for her. For the life of me I can’t remember what it was about… something about dust bunnies under the bed and monsters in my closet. It must have been pretty good because she married me shortly after that. I spent a good number of years after inventing games and prototypes for a variety of ideas before I got back to writing.
It wasn’t a deliberate conscious thought, it was more of a stepping stone. My wife and I had joined a dream interpret group and we were encouraged to write down our dreams as they occurred. “Be as detailed as you can,” we were told.
I was thrilled. If there is one thing I enjoy it’s making people believe me and I like to exaggerate. Not a big exaggeration or an out right lie mine you, just a little step out of sync, just enough so you couldn’t be sure if it were true or not. If I can make people think “it could happen,” even for a moment, then I have them and nothing makes me happier. When I write, I always write with the effort of “it could happen” very much in mind and nothing, I guarantee you, nothing, makes me happier.
