Follow Clyf Davis and his friends as they race across the People’s Continent in the hopes of reaching the safety of the recluse nation of Sagan.

About The Author:
I am a multiple Grammy-nominated jazz composer, trombonist, cartoonist, and university professor. While music is my main focus amidst all of my other creative endeavors, I have found that prose-birthing is a real passion for me. While I have written chapters, articles, and blurbs for a number of musical publications, journals, recorded projects, etc, Cliff Davis and the Big Blue Dark will be my first solid attempt at getting a novel published. To find out more about my extensive activities as well as my stellar resume of happy successes thus far (no brag, just fact) check out my web site:
