*****

Hawthorne is an excellent writer. His short story collection is a surprise to me. Good and interesting stories depicting the 17th century life. Highly recommended for reading during travels.

He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
