Guest Blogger Bob Horbaczewski

Interview with Bob Horbaczewski



A child of the 80's, Bob Horbaczewski grew up immersed in both Science Fiction and Fantasy. Inspired at a young age to write, Bob found a passion in story telling and was rarely found without a pen and pad to write with. Lost to the wonders of Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Dune, Dungeons and Dragons, Marvel, DC, and numerous other stories, Bob became determined to craft his own tales. In every spare moment of his life, Bob found time to write. However, in the summer of 2006 one idea began to consume his creative process. Born years earlier in a wild hailstorm of thought, The Malef Chronicles found a pressure to be brought to a more refined form. Years prior Bob had dreamed of crafting an epic nine part story of galactic wars, betrayals, love, death, and wonder and in 2006 he finally took the steps to begin that very story.
When and why did you start writing?

The first time I remember starting to write seriously was when I was in sixth grade. I remember trying to pen my first novel in my spare time, a science fiction/action piece. Unfortunately I was unable to finish that story as my family moved from Hawaii to Arizona. The first time I seriously started approaching writing was in my early twenties. After taking a hiatus from college to help my mother through a divorce, I had to reevaluate what I wanted to do with my life. The first path I chose was film, and consequently as I hoped to tell my own stories in that medium I wrote my own screenplay. That movie, 'Into The Darkness', can be viewed on YouTube in its entirety. Following that project I became driven to write my own novel, as the story I envisioned seemed to obsess my thoughts.

The main reason that I write is probably to get those stories out of my mind. I am constantly consumed with thoughts towards my imagination, stories that play endlessly until I finally put pen to paper and force them into a tangible form. I love the idea behind crafting a world and placing characters in circumstances that challenge the human condition.

What are you working on now and what are your writing goals/plans for the future?

I am currently working on a few separate projects. First and foremost, I am still trying to promote my first book, 'The Malef Chronicles'. At the same time I am working on writing the second book in that series. I have also written another screenplay, that my friends and I are hoping to gain funding through Kickstarter to see made. On the back burner is a second screenplay and a novel about a female assassin and her exploits. 

My goals are to continue to writing and see all of these projects through to their end. I am hopeful that I can garner an audience for my work and one day make writing my profession instead of just my passion.

What is your favorite part about writing?

My favorite part of writing is crafting a story. I enjoy having the ability and responsibility of creating an entire universe. Being able to take that world and the characters within and create a story that is both interconnected and exciting. I like thinking that in some way I am able to tell a tale that can take someone out of their life, a give them a chance to be lost in my imagination for whatever length of time.

Favorite book(s)?

My favorite book is 'Dune', by Frank Herbert. I still remember reading it for the first time in high school and being so drawn into the world that Mr. Herbert had crafted. I loved the depth that he had given his characters, and the dark elements of death and battle that moved the story along. Beyond that I love reading as much as I can squeeze into my day. One of my favorite series that I have read recently was the Codex Alera series by Jim Butcher. The way in which Mr. Butcher was able to take his characters and grow them over the course of the series was inspiring. I never felt cheated in the way he connected events between his novels, instead each seemed a logical progression of the story, and I was genuinely sad when the series was over.

 Favorite movie(s)?

As a child, and still to this day my favorite movie is 'Star Wars'. I remember at four years old going with my mother to my older brother's elementary school to watch a bootleg copy of 'Empire Strikes Back'. Schools were much more lenient of what kids watched back in those days. We brought bags popcorn and as I sat there watching, I was instantly hooked on not only the movie itself, but also the genre.

Favorite TV show(s)?

Right now my favorite shows on television are 'Breaking Bad' and 'The Walking Dead'. I am a big fan of science fiction shows and love 'Doctor Who' and 'Fringe'. I'm hopeful 'Revolution' will become a solid show. 'Burn Notice' and 'Royal Pains' help get me through the summers. I also enjoy some of the more indulgent shows on television like 'Wipeout', 'The Real World/The Challenge', and 'The Soup'. I always loved food shows as a child, so I can usually tune to the Food Channel and find something that will pique my interest.

What is on your "Bucket List"

I don't really have a "Bucket List". I try my best to live for the now. If there is a place or an event I have a drive to go to I will find a way to do as much. The same could be said for activities and experiences in life. We are only given a short amount of time in this life, so it is my belief to live as much in the present as you can.


In the distant future, Colin Kinison, a brash, young and arrogant pilot is thrust into the middle of an impeding galactic war after his ship is suddenly attacked while investigating an unusual anomaly at the edge of known space. O'Tel, king of the Ter'Ok'Zhu, an ancient race of mystics, recruits Colin to help him stop Xyrus, Dark Lord of the Belgae, from assassinating a once thought lost Princess. A tale of swordplay and space fights, bringing together fantasy and science fiction, The Malef Chronicles offers an epic journey into the fantastic.


ZOOM! A seasick breezed by Colin, shocking him back to reality. Now the decisive moment had come. To turn back, Colin would face not only embarrassment and shame from his squad, but he would never hear the end of it from Sasha. He could not bear that fate, so out across the deck he walked to the seasick that had so recently buzzed by him. It chirped in response to his presence. “Hey there little buddy,” Colin quipped at the robot, not that it could understand or respond to his comment, but the simple routine helped calm his nerves.

Colin removed a magnetic strip from his suit. A crude creation put together in his spare time, this small black strip of silicon and steel was Colin’s ticket to glory. In theory the strip would interfere with the Seasick’s primary functions just enough for him to directly interface and take control of the bot. Sasha had helped him design it, as countless failed attempts to dissuade him from his prior stunts had taught her that it was better to help keep him as safe as possible, than see what damage he would cause if left to his own devices. As with most schemes thought up in the middle of the night, this one sounded worse and worse with each passing moment. Colin reached the seasick. There was no predicting how it would react to him jumping on board, yet alone how its system would react to the interference from the magnetic strip. There was only one-way to find out; Colin leapt.

The most agile of leaps it was not, but it was beautiful nonetheless. Colin landed square on the back of the Seasick and made a grotesque thud. The air from his lungs rushed out of his mouth, leaving him mere seconds to regain his composure. The Seasick would be alerting for help at any moment. This was his shining moment and suddenly ego overtook him. Colin’s mind trailed off to the future, of the stories that would be told with such brevity. He looked back at his squad and waved in triumph. Not thinking Colin lost his grip and fumbled the magnetic strip, dropping it to the empty depths of space. All of his glory lost in a heartbeat, in a single act of foolish bravado. In desperation, Colin lunged for the strip. His legs barely hung onto the side of the Seasick as the strip floated further and further away, gone forever. The Seasick’s alarm wailed. His failure was now complete.

Carbon Copy-Deleted Sex scene

Carbon Copy-Deleted Sex Scene
By: Terri Talley Venters
Grier lightly kissed Lilly’s ears. He buried his face in the softness of her hair and breathed in her aroma, instantly aroused from her scent. He slowly kissed her neck. His hot breath sent chills down her spine.
Lilly’s body tingled all over. She savored Grier’s kisses and longed for his touches. Neither of them could bear to wait much longer. They were so happy and so in love, and needed to join their bodies together.
Grier picked Lilly up and looked deep into her eyes. His mouth covered hers possessively. He carried her below deck and laid her down on the bed. He climbed on top of her and braced himself above her with the strength of his arms.
Grier’s tongue circled her lips. Then he plunged it deeply into her mouth and took possession of his woman. They don’t remember their clothes coming off.  But now they were both naked.  
His hands and mouth covered Lilly’s naked body. Grier’s kisses and caresses were gentle at first. But as his desire grew stronger, so did the pressure of his touch. Their naked bodies ignited as their hot skin rubbed together.
Grier wanted Lilly more than anything in the world. When he looked into her eyes, she saw his passion and longing. He kissed her gently on the mouth. His arms braced himself above her. With a push up like motion, he slowly lowered himself on top of her, crushing Lilly’s body beneath his. He continued kissing her in a fever of passion.
She loved the weight of his body on top of hers. Lilly’s hips moved beneath his and arched up into his groin. Her legs wrapped around one of his legs. She thrust her hips up and down and squeezed her thighs together around his leg. The top of Lilly’s mons rubbed up and down his leg. She writhed with anticipation.
Grier leaned back on his knees and sat up. He grabbed a pillow and placed it under her bottom. She automatically lifted her legs, perpendicular to her body. He grabbed her ankles with one hand and rested them on his shoulder. He slowly entered her with one long stroke.
“Oh, my God,” she said. Lilly’s eyes rolled back in her head, savoring the raw pleasure between her legs.
Grier repeated the slow motion and slid his cock slowly in and out with long smooth strokes. With Lilly’s legs together, her tightness wrapped around Grier’s throbbing organ. She squeezed her vaginal muscles together each time he fully submersed his manhood inside of her. Then she released the pressure as he slid his shaft almost out. Their rhythm synchronized perfectly with each other.
Their breathing grew heavier as Grier picked up the pace of his deep thrusts—faster, faster, and faster. He pulled Lilly’s legs apart, and gently spread her thighs down to the bed. Her legs extended nearly horizontal with the bed in an upside down split.  
Grier pulled out his rock-hard shaft, leaving Lilly empty without the fullness of him inside of her. Then his mouth went down on her hot, wet pussy. He licked her juices quickly, like a cat lapping up milk from a dish. He proved amazing at this.  He focused the tip of his tongue on her clit, and circled it in a repeating figure-eight pattern.
Without stopping the motion of his tongue, he glided his index finger inside Lilly’s sheath. In a ‘come-hither’ motion, he rapidly moved the tip of his finger across the top of the inside of her vaginal wall—the G-spot!
“Oh, my God, that’s it,” Lilly said. She grabbed her tits and fondled them roughly. She squeezed the tips of her nipples and released a high-pitched moan.
Encouraged by her response, Grier intensified his efforts. He moved his tongue faster and faster as he increased the pressure on her clit. He slid a second finger inside of Lilly and rubbed her G-spot with the tips of his fingers. He moaned as he pleasured her. He thrived on her ecstasy.
“Oh, my God!” Lilly screamed. Her hips vibrated up and down. She held it for as long as she could. She loved this intense pleasure. She wanted it to last forever. Her body enjoyed a wonderful orgasm high. And she knew Grier’s climax drew near.
“Ooooooooh, ooooooogh,” Lilly moaned in a high pitch. “Oh, my, God!” Her legs started to shake. She closed her thighs together, knocking Grier’s head out of the way. Lilly’s entire body shook like fish out of water. The shaking slowed down and her entire body clenched together tightly. She cupped her breasts gently to comfort herself.
“Fuck me! Fuck me, now! Grier, please, you gotta fuck me right now!” Lilly begged him to do her bidding.
Eager to oblige, Grier mounted Lilly in missionary position and plunged into her with a frenzy of passion. He moved inside her fast and hard. He plunged his rock-hard shaft deeper and deeper with each thrust.
“Oooh, oooh, aaah, aaah,” Lilly screamed as her hips vibrated again. Her whole body clenched together. Her vaginal walls tightened around Grier’s shaft as he shuddered with pleasure. He released himself inside of her with one last deep plunge.
“Uuuh, uuuh,” he moaned as he closed his eyes. He hugged Lilly close and buried his face in her hair. She hugged him tightly with her cheek against his neck. She wrapped her legs around his waist and tried to get as close to him as humanly possible. They both cried from sheer bliss before falling asleep with their limbs entangled.
