Michael Rizzo is an artist (yes, those god-awful covers are his), martial artist, collector (and frequent user) of fine weaponry, and a pretty good cook. He continues his long, varied and brutal career on the mental health and social services battlefield, trying to do good work while writing about very bad things.
His fiction series include Grayman and The God Mars. (The research he’s done for the Grayman series has probably earned him the attention of Homeland Security.)
Check out his Facebook pages ("The Grayman Series" and "The God Mars Series") for original art and updates.
He causes trouble in person mostly in the Pacific Northwest.

Very well written. Really grabs you and keeps moving. Feels like classic pulp scifi from the fifties and sixties with a modern edge. A very interesting world.

If you liked Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld or some of Larry Niven's post apocalyptic works I think that you will probably enjoy this book.

Croatoan is a book packed full of action, and with the turning of the pages, always a new unexpected turn of events. Superbly written and simply stocked full of little details which entrance the reader, ergo, making it difficult to take a break in reading!
Sadly, I'm only allowed from Smashword to give a maximum of 5 Stars, for this book is well above a 5 Star Rating.
Now I'm off to discover more from this talented Author.
