    "Other people are just...there." She drags heavily on the cigarette, blows a stream of smoke out the window, then flicks the butt out after it. "If they aren't helping, they're just in the way. Weave around them, knock them over, do whatever you have to, but get past them."

About the Author

16ResidencyEveOrientation056 copy_1.jpg

Barry Lyga is a recovering comic book geek. When he was a kid, everyone told him that comic books were garbage and would rot his brain, but he had the last laugh. Raised on a steady diet of comics, he worked in the comic book industry for ten years, but now writes full-time because, well, wouldn’t you?

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy & Goth Girl is his first novel. He lives in the desert with a comic book collection that is just way too big.

You can learn more about Barry on his web site at barrylyga.com. It’s still very much a work in progress, but you’ll forgive him for that, won’t you?
