Welcome to GB-Press! GB-Press was started by author Ken McConnell to self-publish his novels. It has since grown to become a label that represents the voices of new and upcoming writers from the Gem State – Idaho. Did you know that one of the grandfathers of Science Fiction was married in Boise, Idaho? None other than E.E. Doc Smith himself! The fact that Ken writes mostly Space Opera, the genre that made Smith famous, is not the only thing the two writers have in common. Ken was maried in Boise, too and continues to reside there and write.
