AMAZON REVIEW: THE YOUNG GUARDIANS AND THE GENESIS SPELL

The first volume of my series, The Young Guardians and the Genesis Spell, received the following review on Amazon:

“Grady’s books invite us into the mind of a science fiction lover. The characters are many and purposefully defined. Grady is a talented young man who obviously loves what he does. With time and experience his writing will mature and I expect to see his books around for a long time to come. Keep writing, Grady P. Brown! I am impressed by his bio and with what he has accomplished. I am still working through the second book. I love the descriptions of the characters and their traits rated on a numerical scale. Very inventive, and actually quite helpful.”

Last week, I attended a Comikaze Afterparty in Hollywood that was hosted by my good friends the Winner Twins, authors of The Strand Prophecy.  I was glad that I was invited by the Twins and once I entered the event, I felt an overwhelming sense of kinship that I had not experienced since Wondercon.  There were dozens of people who were into the same things I was: science fiction, fantasy, superheroes, anime/manga, etc.  Also, there were at least three other people who had autism, so it felt great to interact with others who share my condition, which made me feel less alone.  While at the party, I talked with the other guests about everything from Star Wars, anime/manga, and how they knew the Winner Twins.  I was definitely among my people and I could have talked about those subjects all night.  Finally, I was able to talk to people who understand what the heck I am talking about.
