**HONORABLE MENTION IN THE 2014 HOLLYWOOD BOOK FESTIVAL** From IndieReader.com review: "CRYO-MAN is an interesting look at a future where robots and humans battle for survival in the aftermath of a great war. Niko’s adventures through this wasteland to recover his lost memories set the stage for an unusual look at life after an apocalypse. The world of CRYO-MAN is rich with detail and ripe for a series." Nikolas Edwards has a lone memory: he follows his young son around their house, playing and laughing, as any normal father would with his boy. But Nikolas is very sick and the memory ends with his death, though not before he has his son make a very important phone call... When Nikolas awakens next, he is no longer the man he used to be and no longer lives in the world he once knew.
He has changed dramatically, more than he imagined a human possiby could. Cryonics has given him a second chance at life, but it has taken away nearly every memory he once knew, leaving only the final moment before his human death. But the thought of his son remains, tethering him to a past he desperately wants to remember. Though the world is no longer controlled by humans, he sets off to learn about his family by any means necessary, even though what he's become makes him an enemy to all.

Theresult of intensive discussion by distinguished Evangelical and Catholictheologians, these chapters explore the ways both communionshandle scripture and tradition and search for points of contact.While this volume does not claim to resolve all the differences thatexist, it does go a long way toward recasting this old dispute in anew and promising light.
