“De Castro has crafted a film comedy in prose form and makes suitably merry with the culture clash between displaced Native Americans and modern New Yorkers (the former often showing up the absurdities of the latter). The lighthearted adventure froths along...—well-scripted... A diverting comedy familiar in style though unusual in content.”
- Kirkus Reviews
The Wizard Who Stole Manhattan
Tom Linden had a Masters degree in History. His father, sister, and mother were acute overachievers. Tom loved to work at Central Park. Once a month his family gathered for a meal Tom referred to as “Disappointment Day.” They ate elaborate meals, but the affairs were an opportunity for Tom’s family to put him down, and belittle him.
Avelino became interested in writing at an early age. He has published ten short stories in various magazines, some under the name of AD Conrad. He has written three novels. The Wizard Who Stole Manhattan is the first serious comic fantasy he has published. Please enjoy.
