The Superyogi Scenario is a novel with a difference; and in a world replete with novels, this story is a standout. The Superyogi Scenario is exceptional both in its basic concept and in its development: something that crosses genres with a confident combination of action, philosophy, and intriguingly different concepts on what makes a superhero--or, a supervillain.
-- D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
Named one of Foreward Reviews Five-Star "Indie Books We Love" for 2015.
"With this fun book, both yogis and comic-book lovers will be inspired. Entertaining, engaging, and thought provoking, The Superyogi Scenario has something for everyone. Practitioners of yoga will find themselves looking up comics; comic-book fans will be inspired to book a yoga session. Everyone will look for the next installment in this series. The story is extremely well developed, so much so that it seems nearly ready for the silver screen."

About the Author
James Connor began writing supernatural thrillers when he won a Raven Society Award at the University of Virginia in support of his creative writing. But it wasn't until two decades later, after completing a three-year isolated meditation and yoga retreat in the high-desert mountains of Arizona, that James felt compelled to publish stories that allow readers to experience deep wisdom gained from his fifteen years of detailed Buddhist and yoga training. Following in the footsteps of his story-telling idols C.S. Lewis, Neil Gaiman, and the Wachowskis, James is a firm believer in combining philosophy with fun. He is also the founder of GoBeyond.org and travels teaching Buddhist and yoga philosophy with an emphasis on meditation.
