About the Author

Richard Smith grew up in New England in and around the kinds of towns where Freezer Burn takes place. He has a BA in History from Wesleyan University and an MFA in Cinema from the University of Southern California. He is a former screenwriter, having been credited on the movie Lockup, and worked on three of the James Bond series. He is also a Creative Director for interactive and immersive experiences for corporations and museums. It was while working on an exhibit for the Denver Museum of Nature and Science that he first encountered the fantastic world of Ice Age super-predators, and the idea for Freezer Burn was born. Richard lives with his family and fridge in San Francisco. Freezer Burn is his first novel

More About the Author

Richard Smith grew up in New England, likes orange, and is very handy. When not writing novels, he works as a creative director on commercials, corporate events and museum experiences. It was while working on a major exhibit for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science that he came into contact with his first Ice Age predator and got the inspiration for what would become Freezer Burn. He has always been somewhat apprehensive about refrigerators.

This was a fast, fun read.

I read the book in three sittings, including opening it up at 2 am on a Sunday morning as I couldn't bring myself to sleep before reading a few more chapters.

Smith says in his book that "Maine is the next Florida," and if that's true, then he's the next Carl Hiaasen, only you'll be able to pronounce his name without that tinge of did-I-say-that-right?

Freezer Burn is laugh-out-loud funny, and not only are the characters drawn in loving detail, but so are the Short-Faced Bears, Dire Wolves, and the occasional Giant Sloth. You won't be able to put it down...except for the occasional trip to the fridge.

I received this book as a birthday present, and began reading it this past weekend while on a cross-country flight. From the opening chapter, this book draws you in. The characters are well developed, and the plot - while wacky when you try to explain it to someone - works very well. It is very engaging, yet not overly intellectual (i.e. it's a "fun" read). I read the book in three sittings, including opening it up at 2 am on a Sunday morning as I couldn't bring myself to sleep before reading a few more chapters. I gave the book to my father, who spent a career in editorial and creative roles, and he had trouble putting it down, as well. Overall, I'd say this is a very strong first novel by the author and would highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
This is the first not-yet-a-bestseller book that I read and I can't stop smiling at the wanderful pictures it created. Richard's imaginative firepower is absolutely humbling. How could anyone come up with so many good ideas in one book and intertwine them like it's only natural?! I miss my read already. It is rare that a work of fiction (and what fiction it is) conveys so much about the human condition. Richard Smith generates a world of obscurity and places real people and real lives in it in a way that makes this book so lovable and funny and grotesque at the same time. You will not be able to pry your eyes away from it until you finish it. Better not have any urgent project deadlines when you start reading it. My hat is off to Richard, his extraordinary imagination and unbelievable talent for good storytelling. When is the movie coming out? Hopefully before global warming is in full swing.

Freezer Burn is a zany adventure story so full of hot spots, vivid images that are so funny and so subversively wise - I can't wait for it to be a movie. It's almost believable when those two Maine guys enter the ice age through an abandoned refrigerator they found off a logging road in northern Maine but when the woolly mammoth and the sabre-tooth tiger and the scary caveman follow them back into what seems like today's Millinocket, it gets wilder and woollier and wonderful. Even through all the fantastic uproar, destruction, chaos, and culture shocks beyond any expectation, still, you find you really care about the main characters, Ernie, Floyd and MJ. The author is clever with words and the images are also so strong that I suspect he thinks in pictures too.

Disclaimer: Richard was a classmate of mine many years ago. A beer or a 1000 pounds of meat would be recompense for a good review, right?
This is a great read: Carl Hiassen + John Irving + EL Doctorow. Hold on and take a trip from there to here across the deeps of New England, the deeps of human motivation and then the pure whacky. It was a delight to read this book: we all live among these characters whether in New England or in prehistory. It's a great narrative following Ernie and Floyd, but also an insightful commentary about where we all end up and whynot. Read at your own speed and have fun.

i loved this book so much, i bought 5 copies to give out as holiday gifts and i'm going to buy 5 more to keep passing on the enjoyment to others.
i can't wait for the movie!!! It was an easy read, yet filled with so many insights into people, places, and things. I loved the characters and the pace and story-so satisfying.
Perfect balance of information and narrative. I really enjoyed it from start to finish. I think it will appeal to anyone who enjoys a great story and to be transported into it so thoroughly. bravo mr. smith!

This is not the first time I've read this. I love the plot and at times poetic use of techie speak. There are some minor typos, he didn't have time to do another sweep before he died. If you enjoy adventures, time travel, hunting large game and Maniacs, this is a blast. I read several chapters aloud on a camping trip in Maine. I loved the laughs we shared.
