It’s an episode chock full of twists and turns with an incredible ending you won’t see coming. Unless you’ve listened before. We end with the email address. But HOW do we get there? Well for one, we talk about video games as storytelling. For another we kick off Ready Player One and Reamde as our new books. And finally….. well that would be a spoiler.

Hey Veronica and Tom,
The reason I’m writing is because after 2 years, I finished my 3rd book, first fiction, a novella titled Trapped in My Zombie Body. The cover is being designed now, and I will have it going out digitally in mid-October, paperback in November. Moreover, I’m donating 50% of royalties to Child’s Play Charity.
Imagine your body no longer listened to you. You were trapped, experiencing the world in a new way: without any control over your actions. It’s a world filled with sleep deprivation, mind games, and unthinkable acts. Welcome to my world.
By the way, I publish under my legal first name, Mario, rather than my nickname, Andy, just FYI. I look forward to hearing from you guys!
Mario Lurig, aka Andy in Colorado
