Meet the Author

He's made ghosts appear on the screens of borrowed cell phones. He can shove his hand through a living human's chest, seemingly breaking the skin yet leaving them unscathed. He's even made a town think they were being besieged by UFOs.


He's a magician, a paranormal illusionist, an inventor and an unapologetic prankster. He's been one of magic's best kept secret. Andrew Mayne started off on a promising career in magic as a teenager when he became the second youngest illusionist to ever embark on a world tour (The first one being another upstart by the name of David Copperfield). During his tour he performed in resorts, on luxury liners and exotic locales around the world. Five years later, at the ripe old age of twenty-three, he decided it was time for a career change. Bored with putting beautiful girls into boxes only to be cut in half, the sequins and the other clich├ęd trappings of magic, Andrew decided to call it quits on anything that was beginning to look like a normal career in magic. Although an established performer at the top of his career, there wasn't a place for the kind of magic Andrew really wanted to perform. To his booking agent's chagrin, he decided to delve behind the scenes and see what kind of boundaries he could push.


At first through word of mouth, then through books and DVDs, Andrew's unique ideas began to spread throughout the magic community. David Blaine, Penn & Teller and others all sought out Andrew for his radical ideas on magic. He became know as a magician's magician. From figuring out the right way to levitate on a crowded street, to inventing a means for an astronaut in space to choose the same card as a magician on earth, Andrew became the go-to-guy for the impossible. His creations began popping up on television specials and stages around the world. Aspiring young magicians who dubbed themselves "Mayniacs" devoured his material and began inflicting Andrew's style of shock magic on an unsuspecting public. People around the world were being exposed to Andrew's wicked approach to magic.


Today, with over 36 published books, DVDs and effects, Andrew is widely considered one of the most creative magicians of his generation. Unique for a magician, besides being both a creator and a performer, his creative repertoire stretches from both intimate close-up magic to grand illusion. In 2007 Andrew launched iTricks.com the top daily news source for magic and iTricks.TV, a daily magic video channel. Beyond magic, he's a partner in Jaras/Mayne Productions which recently produced G4 Underground for the G4 network.

    A good summer read (that would benefit from a good editor)

    Mayne's latest effort is an enjoyable and entertaining read. I was initially afraid that the story would be too similar to Jon Maberry's "Patient Zero", but I was pleasantly surprised that it had plenty of surprises in store.

    My comment about it needing an editor doesn't refer to pacing or length, as both are good. It refers to the surprising number of typos and grammar errors in the text. It seemed that at least every ten pages or so there'd be something: extra words that look like remnants of sloppy editing, an inappropriate homophone here and there, grammar mistakes that may be left over from changes in sentence structure, etc.

    Also, the text is locked on a courier-like font that won't change on my NC for some reason.

    At first I didn't think much of it, because a couple errors don't mean much. But they are found throughout the book, almost all the way to the end. There's a note at the end of the book about how the author released a draft version online for others to edit, so maybe that has something to do with it.

    I haven't read any of his other books yet, but I plan to. I'll see then whether the problem is a persistent feature of Mayne's offerings. Regardless, as long as you aren't so anal that such mistakes would ruin it, you probably can't get a better read for under a buck, so go for it.

    Anyone who loves, dystopian, post apocalyptic, sic fi, fantasy type genre will love this book. I was totally immersed into the main character. A modern day "I Am Legend."

    Good book.

    Fast paced. Slows a little at the end. Would be a terrifying situation to be in.

    Sentem Nce Ok. , Ok, but frustrating

    Someone needs to explain compound sentences or at least tell the author to lay off the Hemingway.

    Highly recommended

    I hadn't read a full novel post high school but Public Enemy Zero straight cold busted that streak. This book grabbed my attention and held it throughout. The prologue is a weird thing but everything makes sense by the end. This was a good read and I am actually interested in reading books now.

    The biggest con for me were that the font was unchangeable. The size can still be changed but switching fonts on the Nook does nothing. Aside from that the biggest problem is not all of this author's books are available on Nook yet. Hopefully future books from Andrew Mayne (like Chronological Man) get released in Nook format.
