I live in the Midwest with my wife and multiple spoiled cats. I've been writing short fiction for most of my adult life, but it wasn't until 2009 NaNoWriMo that I ever finished enough of one thing to make a whole book out of it.
A string of lonely buildings crouched in the shadow of the mountains; a wide spot on a narrow trail leading into a dangerous, little-used crossing. Welcome to Barracuda Flats, Population: 5. A quiet little place most of the time, where the biggest threat to anyone would seem to be boredom. Or so you might think, anyway...but you would be wrong.
I enjoyed this story, but I found myself disappointed that there wasn't more of it. I definitely wanted to read more about the best superhuman team in the southeast region! And knowing Powersurge's secret when the rest of his teammates don't is just icing on the cake.
After I first encountered this book online (and found myself returning to it multiple times), I knew I had to have a full copy of my own. Mr. Epstein's writing style is straightforward yet engaging, and the subject matter is fascinating. If you've never thought much about what's behind all of those diamond commercials that start showing up across the media spectrum before every holiday, you will never look at them the same way again after reading this book.
