J. R. Calvo

Biography

J. R. Calvo, a jack of all trades, was born the youngest of three in New Haven, CT. Weaned by trekkies and Star Wars, he became infatuated with science fiction as a young pup. His obsessions extend out to James O’Barr, and anything printed in comics. Throw in some Tolkien, Goodkind, Jordan, and Sanderson and the conundrum erupted. So Calvo journeyed down the Science Fantasy path to masterpieces like Dune. He began Resonics, in response to the most powerful question, Why not? Why not pit science against ‘magic’? Who would win in a fight a mech or a jedi? However, this is merely the backdrop. Resonics is foremost about the very real people. The villains who think they’re doing what’s best, the good guys drunk on their own legends, and the robotic centaur with a heart of gold… What? You never heard that one? Come and see.
