Meet the Author

L.A. based author and illustrator, cynic and skeptic, atheist and misanthrope; funny guy for those with strong stomachs. Charitable to a fault. Single, childless, rootless; sold his soul to the Muse of poetry at an early age. Staple diet of carnitas, beer, and Tylenol. Favorite color: invisible. Never met father, ditched mother on eighteenth birthday. No friends except for an old sock puppet named Shut Up. Suicide runs in family. But not me, man. Not me.

    Propaganda thinly vailed as science fiction

    If you want a self loathing view of human kind this book might be for you. Me, I'm glad I didn't have to pay for a book I only read half of!

    Very good read - I highly recommend!

    I found the book to be an awesome example of taking the history of past atrocities -- the Spanish Conquistadors, the Pilgrims, the bureaucrats at Ellis Island, etc... -- and re-incorporating them into a future that I would never want to see. It was written brilliantly.

    Not what I expected ...

    A dark Sci Fi story that takes immigration and racism to a different planet.
