**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.

Oliver Goldsmith arrived in England in 1756 a penni Irishman.
He toiled for years in the anonymity of Grub Street already a synonym for impoverished hack writers before he became one of literary London s most celebrated authors. Norma Clarke tells the extraordinary story of this destitute scribbler turned gentleman of letters as it unfolds in the early days of commercial publishing, when writers livelihoods came to depend on the reading public, not aristocratic patrons. Clarke examines a network of writers radiating outward from Goldsmith: the famous and celebrated authors of Dr. Johnson s Club and those far fortunate brothers of the quill trapped in Grub Street. Clarke emphasizes Goldsmith s sense of himself as an Irishman, showing that many of his early literary acquaintances were Irish emigres: Samuel Derrick, John Pilkington, Paul Hiffernan, and Edward Purdon. These writers tutored Goldsmith in the ways of Grub Street, and their influence on his development has not previously been explored. Also Irish was the patron he acquired after 1764, Robert Nugent, Lord Clare. Clarke places Goldsmith in the tradition of Anglo-Irish satirists beginning with Jonathan Swift. He transmuted troubling truths about the British Empire into forms of fable and nostalgia whose undertow of Irish indignation remains perceptible, if just barely, beneath an equanimous English surface. To read Brothers of the Quill is to be taken by the hand into the darker corners of eighteenth-century Grub Street, and to laugh and cry at the absurdities of the writing life. "

Humor, dulzura, personajes entrañables y carcajadas en más de doscientas tiras protagonizadas por Mike y Bryan, el caso de almagelismo más celebrado en Facebook. Es, en sus propias palabras, el proyecto más personal de este autor conocido, sobre todo, por su saga de zombis "Los Caminantes", nacido del azar durante la promoción de una de sus novelas, y que se ha ganado día a día el corazón de sus seguidores.
