    Mario Puzo first answered the question 'What is a family?' with the creation of the Corleones in his landmark best seller The Godfather. Now, 30 years later, Puzo enriches us all with his ultimate vision of the subject: the story of the greatest crime family in Italian history, the Borgias.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I don't know if it was the delivery or the contents, but the portrayal of the Borgias make them seem rather dull. These were dynamic indiduals, but nowhere was shown Rodrigo's or Chasare' ruthlessness or Lucretia's impulsiveness. Juan Borgia and Julia Farnese were reduced to bit players.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Mario Puzo and completed by Carol Gino ? Why or why not?

    No. Too many other choices.


    What three words best describe Philip Bosco’s voice?

    Stick to commercials


    Did The Family inspire you to do anything?

    Watch the two miniseries that we made last year. Each one had different interpretations of each character.

  • The Human Blend: Tipping Point, Book 1

    The Human Blend is a science-fiction adventure centered around a group of thieves living in a future where physical alterations and enhancements are a common occurrence. If you could take on a body with any features you wanted, what would it look like? And what would you do with them - human or otherwise?

    Any additional comments?

    It's bad enough to end Book 1 in a cliffhanger. What makes it particularly galling is that Book 2 is not even available. Are you suggesting we buy the print version if we want to continue the story?
