From Whence The Rivers Run

Set on the Ruzizi River above Lake Tanganyika, Cicinski’s exquisitely crafted second novel is the story of an old Burundian fisherwoman who sets out to hunt and kill the legendarily large and vicious crocodile that killed her husband a year previously; and of her granddaughter, Lenka, who follows her in the hopes of protecting her not only from the dangers she faces in her quest for vengeance, but from losing the last vestiges of the woman she once was. Through the course of the hunt, Cicinski paints a vivid picture not only of a relationship between a young girl full of hope and optimism and dreams of the future, and an old woman who has been all but destroyed by grief and an all-consuming desire for revenge, but more broadly of the relationship between humanity and nature, the experience of grief and ageing, and the character of a strong woman who even in her darkest moments of despair refuses to be ruled by the expectations of her society.

The Seeds of Akara

“The vast cosmos isn’t what it used to be in this clever SF tale.”  -Kirkus Reviews

The universe has died.

It has reached its eventual heat death and no further life processes are possible.  

But something has gathered all the sentient life-forms that had ever reached a reasonable level of complexity and placed them in a lattice-work sphere around a final star. The truth of their existence is known to a select few, and the ultimate reason for their existence is known to fewer still.

When a nihilistic, malevolent force releases a pathogen designed to end all life, a young girl and some allies must get to the central world to keep her world from being destroyed to stop the spread of the virus. 

Book one of the New Sky trilogy is an epic adventure featuring multiple worlds and characters whose actions will determine nothing less than whether or not life continues. You’ll love the characters and adventure in this novel.

Meet David Lapiana

A childhood sense of wonder led the author to discover the stories and deeds of the great mythological heroes. Eventually, however, Achilles, Hector, and Theseus, not to mention lesser known characters in Celtic, Germanic and Native American myths led to an enjoyment of such larger-than-life heroes as Superman, Captain America and Thor. The first actual science fiction novel read (at the age of 15) was Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End and with that the author was hooked. Through varied incarnations as a businessman, accountant, construction worker, and various sales positions the urge to write was strong, but not pursued until reaching his fifties.
