Isn’t it Time for SciFi to Honor the Mentor?

“Don’t get me wrong. I love watching Luke train under Obi-wan, and Harry learn from Professor Dumbledore. But this story puts the teacher center stage instead of killing them.” This summer, local author Marjorie King returns to the Lake Jackson Library with her newest book in the Maverick series titled Rogue Invasion as a part of our virtual summer reading programming.

Marjorie King loves Firefly, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Asimov. She’s House Ravenclaw (with a little bit of Slytherin). On her website,, she posts reviews of her favorite SciFi/Fantasy books. Occasionally she posts recipes on her blog too. She can sometimes be spotted in the wild... literally, since Marjorie loves hiking National Parks across the US. Marjorie published her debut space adventure, Maverick Gambit, in 2019 and the sequel, Rogue Invasion, in 2020. Please join us on Monday, July 27 at 6 p.m. on the Lake Jackson Library’s Facebook page ( for a chance to hear author Marjorie King. You do not need a Facebook account in order to watch the program.

Copies of Maverick Gambit are currently available in the library system. You can read an e-book copy of Rogue Invasion through Biblioboard( Other copies of Rogue Invasion will be available in the library system soon.
