Nicholas Rossis Novels: Schism – Rise of the Prince – Mad Water – Vigil – (End Game)

More than the saga of Benioff and Weiss The Game of Thrones, "PAERSEUS" by Nicholas C. Rossis reminds me of an epic story where the reader is transported into a sacred narrative, built by cosmological events and where archetypes and symbols garble the reader. A myth, in short, that could also be the vision of …

“The Annwyn’s Secret” by Claudine Giovannoni

Una bella recensione del romanzo Il Segreto degli Annwyn, ora disponibile in lingua inglese.

translature

I was pleased to read on the author’s blog that one of her recent books, Il Segreto degli Annwyn, has been translated from Italian into English.
The Annwyn’s Secret is a novel set in the XXIII century and the future scenario it presents is not as positive as one could possibly hope for.

Thus, the surviving world population was forced to move to those few remaining habitable areas. However, they had to adapt severe security measures and get used to live under the constant threat of emergency occurrences.

Remarkably, Claudine’s book is not about the end of…

M. R. Morales: a Guatemalan writer of fiction or reality?

I enjoyed both novels, but the second one has left me stunned! The subtle humor of Mario Roberto Morales, emerges from time to time, but the puns aimed at the truth about his beloved country are effective. After all, is not a fiction invented from scratch... but rather an historical account embellished with sagacity. Unfortunately it …

Tito Bassi: a writer of visceral emotions * scrittore d’emozioni viscerali

I was not even twenty when I first met Tito: he was a fascinating person, singular and unreachable. Or at least if I considered all the stories and rumors going around about him! He was emanating a strange aura, his smile was captivating, and his strange accent made me smile. I saw him again on an …
