Sasser currently makes her home in Chouteau, Oklahoma where he owns a ranch alongside Donna his wife. It is from his home that he writes his novels and is an astute businessman and rancher who tea ropes and trains horses.

Charles W. Sasser’s novel “Dark Planet” is a work with an unusual ethical dilemma, a fast pace, and a ton of action that is the author’s first foray into military science fiction.

At the opening of the novel, the Republic of Galaxia has just sent an expedition to Aldenia the Dark Planet that is known to crawl with monstrous reptiles and insects.

The persons sent to deal with an alien threat include a half-human named Kadar San and a large troupe of hangers-on and helpers.

The team will face all manner of challenges upon landing on the planet, including a powerful device known as a Lindal that was left behind by the Indowy aliens that had at some point held the Zentadon race as slaves.
The Zentadons who are of the same race as Kadar San usually become very dangerous when stressed. The stress is heightened when the soldiers from Galaxia have to face temptation, rough terrains, and local wildlife.
Ultimately, Kadar San and Blade Kilmer who is the sniper in the team begin to stalk each other presenting Kadar with a terrible choice.

If he takes out Kilmer and goes crazy, he may put the rest of his teammates in danger. However, if he sacrifices his life, the sniper may just take out everyone including the only woman Kadar has ever fallen in love with.

In “Homicide” by Charles W. Sasser sees the author go back to writing about his milieu of rotting corpses, homicidal perverts, and misunderstood cops which is what he loves to write about in his hard-boiled detective fiction.
In this work, Charles documents his years in Tulsa where he worked as a homicide detective. During this time, he was obsessed with resolving the grisly murders of three young men believed to have been committed by a serial killer that the local papers have nicknamed Jekyll-and-Hyde.

Even though the three murders were never resolved, Sasser who styles himself some form of Columbo and Dirty Harry seems to have had a lot more successes rather than failures.

Sasser tells of his experiences in Tulsa in a literate and lively style. He also showcases what may best be described as manifest and exaggerated contempt for homosexuals and women.

However, Charles who is a co-writer of The Walking Dead provides an authentic even if grim window into the world of horrors we often just see in the headlines of tabloids.

The author provides a personal look at the frustrations and triumphs of those who are charged with facing horrors that most of us would never imagine facing every working day.

Charles W. Sasser’s “The Return” is the story of a former U.S. Navy SEAL Pete Brauer who died clutching the portrait of a beautiful Vietnamese French girl that had been hanging on his wall for more than two decades.

Following the man’s death, Kaczmarek his friend goes on a quest to determine what relationship he had with Mhai, the girl in the photo, so that he could lay to rest the demons that had plagued his friend.

He heads to Vietnam where many other veterans also love to visit to relive the old memories and old battlefields. In the process of investigating the romance, Kazmarek is forced to confront some dark personal demons he had tried to suppress for years.
He soon finds himself reliving the horrors and nightmares of the Vietnam War which happened more than three decades earlier.

Things get even more interesting when he has to confront Commander Minh his greatest nemesis that is now an aging geriatric but still hellbent on evening out the scores.
