From the Author
This is definitely the book that I enjoyed writing the most. It was so exciting to create that I ended up writing up to a few full length pages per day for weeks. Including writing it on the sub-way, the old Lisbon trams and the old Lisbon ferries. At that time I hadn't even read most of Orson Scott Card books, but so that you have an idea, writing Guinsberg did feel like reading a really great science fiction book.
This book is entirely different from "Whispers of a Lost Dream", which is much "denser" and poetic. Guinsberg is much more about the story itself and about telling it in a fun, unexpected way. So I truly hope you enjoy reading it at least as much as I enjoyed writing it.
