Book Description


Junkyard Dogs 1: The Scrapyard Incident.
Ensign Tamara Carlisle, a brilliant, beautiful but decidedly quirky young officer on a remote assignment to obtain information needed to finish her advanced degree in Military History...
Lieutenant Ryan Harris, a talented and experienced engineer who harbors doubts about his ability to command...
Engineering Technician Angus Hawkins, a savvy veteran and former Chief Petty Officer busted down in rank for brawling...
These three unsuspecting individuals, marooned after a devastating sneak attack on the United Terran Federation Naval Reclamation Center-- a huge, orbiting Junkyard located in a remote corner of Federation space-- are forced to confront their limitations and team up to fight back against unknown, heavily armed foes who threaten their continued survival...
During their effort to survive, the trio discovers that their unknown foes have even bigger plans. It seems they would like nothing more than to start a revolution...
Can the three Scrapyard survivors come together with an Islamic Ambassador on a mission of peace, a smuggling ring bent on nothing more than making a profit, and a small, underarmed orbital station security force to somehow thwart a terrorist attack that threatens to ignite a new interplanetary war?

    About the Author

    Born and raised in Minnesota, educated at Moorhead State (Moorhead, MN) and North Dakota State University. I developed a passion for science fiction in junior high and have been hooked ever since. I started writing science fiction sometime around 1986 or so and about a dozen of my short stories were published in pioneering online magazines such as "Athene" and "Intertext." I have been employed as a potato scientist at the University of Idaho since 1991. I currently serve on the editorial boards of two national trade journals and have written more than two hundred educational and informative articles for the popular press. I live with my wife and two cats (or is it the other way around?) in southeastern Idaho, where most of the potatoes are. An irresistible compulsion just a few years ago to get back into writing science fiction resulted in "The Scrapyard Incident." Maybe the theme of the book would make more sense if I admitted to having an inexplicable interest in junkyards too... Many thanks to Angie Wirth ( for her breathtaking artwork. I am currently working on the second book of the "Junkyard Dogs" saga which will be entitled "The Veritian Derelict." I hope to have it available by this summer. We'll see if my muse behaves. If you have questions or comments about me, "The Scrapyard Incident" or diseases of potatoes feel free to drop me a line at

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, but... 5 May 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I enjoyed reading this novel and the author has left open the possibility of a sequel. May I suggest that if he does write a sequel, then he spends a little more time fleshing out the characters a bit more. There was one thing about this book which really grated - the stilted speech of the Scottish engineer. No one in Scotland speaks that way, and even if you believe that 500 years in the future they will, it still makes for painful reading. Having said all that, if a sequel comes out, I will read it.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Ok book 17 Jun. 2013
    By Philda

    I have always loved starship novels, but although this was sort of interesting ,I really struggled to finish it. I found that at the beginning of every chapter you had to wade through Tamara's dissertation and research. Ughhhh!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars roll on the next book 24 April 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    From some of the reviews I was not expecting too much. How wrong you can be if you believe others! A good justification for being able to try a sample. This is a good read and well written with the story developing in a flowing manner. The method of using excerpts from Tamara's thesis works well to provide historical background without having the story lose focus. It also fits in with the reason Tamara is where she is and makes her a broader character. I think Phillip Nolte is an author to watch as he grows.

    I found this a very entertaining book and I can highly recommend it.
    I was very dubious at first, but I soon developed a bond with the guys defending the scrapyard especially Tamara.
    It is a really good read Try it and I am sure you will enjoy it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed story 14 July 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The action was very good but the story was very disjointed swapping from one sub plot to another this caused the story too be annoying leading to the tendency to ignore some sections and go back to them later .

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good storyline. 18 Mar. 2013
    By Ktesis
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Interesting story. The background of a giant scrapyard in space makes a change from the usual galaxy wide scenarios found in other books. The ending suggests that there may be more to come. I hope so!
