The Winds of Astrodon by James Renner

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Set during the immediate aftermath of the Sandy Hook shootings, the father of a murdered girl retreats into his writing to escape the tragedy. As his story progresses, he realizes he may have a chance to create a better world for his daughter inside the pages of his fantasy novel.

As a parent of a child the same age as those gunned down in Newtown, I wrote this as a way to explore my understanding of senseless violence and how our minds can cope with tragedy through art.
