Book Description

In the future, a virus has ravaged the world. The vaccine cures millions but with a great cost --- the side effects are immense populations of drug addicts. You know a drug addict by the black irises and their rage. Through the eyes of Detective James, we journey through this wasteland and see if the future of humanity is hopeful ... or dark and disastrous. Full of action and intense drama, this book is as much about the human soul and condition as it is the world they live in.

When I read his press release --- let's read it together --- What: AISD/NHAS student publishes eBook on Amazon Kindle

North Heights's student, Jesus Salcido, has published a novel, The Fiend in the Void, on Amazon Kindle. Jesus began the project in Senior English for the New World Project but caught the writing fever and extended the short story into a novel. The process took three months and on February 8, 2011, Salcido punched the enter button to okay the upload of his book to Kindle. The eBook sells on the Amazon site for $3.50.

What's the book about?

In the future, a virus has ravaged the world. The vaccine cures millions but with a great cost --- the side effects are immense populations of drug addicts. You know a drug addict by the black irises and their rage.

---- I wasn't sure he could live up to the hype. High school student? Novel? Action and drama? Yes, he does all of the above. It's a quick read, due in part to the length (more novela than novel) and the pacing (what kind of teenager knows how to pace a book so quickly and without the morass of teen angst.) There are no teens in this book. Just a taut, mysterious story that surprises. Salty language, movie-like scenes and psychological exploration --- the book is a solid good read. Thanks Jesus. Fun stuff. Hope to see more of your work in the future

More About the Author

My name is Jesus Salcido and I am from Amarillo, TX. I currently go to North Heights Alternative School and about to finish high school. I grew up in Dumas for a while, then I moved to Amarillo for 16 years, after that I moved to Dallas for 3 years, and now I'm back in Amarillo. High school was tough for me when I first started. I was always getting into trouble and always absent. Eventually I dropped out for a whole year doing nothing to better myself. One day I get a call from North Heights offering a one in a life time opportunity to get my high school diploma. I knew I wasn't going to have a easy life if I didn't get my diploma so I did. In my school year of being at North Heights I started on a small project which eventually led up to my first book. After 4 months of continously typing I finished it and I am proud to say I completed something.
