“Malila of the Scorch” by W. Clark Boutwell won a Book Excellence Award in 2020 in Sci-fi.

ReadersMagnet brilliantly displayed W. Clark Boutwell’s political fiction book “Malila of the Scorch: Book Three of Old Men and Infidels” at the New York Library Association 2022 Annual Conference and Trade Show on November 3–4, 2022, at Saratoga Springs City Center, 522 Broadway, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866, and at the ReadersMagnet Book Confab on October 28–30, 2022, at 72 Warren St., Tribeca, New York.

Following the events in “Outland Exile” and “Exiles’ Escape,” “Malila of the Scorch” concludes the Malila-Jesse saga. There have been a lot of changes since the whale hunt. Malila knew very little about the perfidy of her nation, the nature of human, the stars, the touch of an old man, beyond the stereotypes that had been perpetuated about her.

Also, while many of Jesse’s stories are based on reality, they may be too much information for an “old, middle-aged” soldier to process at once. Because of the broadness of Jesse’s experience and character, he is a conundrum to Malila until Malila realizes “he is the best man she has ever known.”

Author W. Clark Boutwell has done it again, providing readers with a gripping tale that also serves as a superb climax to the “Old Men and Infidels” trilogy. Readers couldn’t get enough of Malila and her escapades in this exciting tale.
