Seattle Kraken and Ionath Kraken NFL

Today the NHL announced the nickname of the new Seattle expansion team: “the Seattle Kraken.” We here at the Galactic Football League welcome Seattle embracing the same name as our Ionath franchise.

Now with five novels, five novellas (and a sixth novel and novella due out at the end of 2020), the GLF series has entertained sports fans and scifi fans alike with action-packed audiobooks, eBooks, paperbacks and limited-edition hardcover books.

Part of her origin is in the new short story anthology FIRE IS ORANGE, the latest installment in Scott Sigler’s “Color Series” (following on BLOOD IS RED and BONES ARE WHITE).
