WHILE STAR WARS and STAR TREK seeded J. Daniel Sawyer's passion for the unknown, his childhood in academia gave him a deep love of history and an obsession with how the future emerges from the past. This obsession led him through adventures in the film industry, the music industry, venture capital firms in the startup culture of Silicon Valley, and a career creating novels and audiobooks exploring the worlds that assemble themselves in his head. His travels with bohemians, burners, historians, theologians, and inventors led him eventually to a rural exile where he uses the quiet to write, walk on the beach, and manage a pair of production companies that bring innovative stories to the ears of audiences across the world.

I don't give stories five stars very often, but when I do it's for a well told story that you will read more than once. This is one such story. Dan breaks a few of the "rules" that I hear on a somewhat regular basis:
"Don't write in dialect."
"Don't write in first person."
"Don't get involved in a land war in As.."
Okay maybe not that last one. Suffice to say this is a touching, haunting, beautiful story and is underpriced at $.99 in terms of how much pleasure I will get out of it.
