Editorial Reviews

Review

"Trisomy XXI is a fun, exciting science fiction adventure. The writing is spectacular, and author G.A. Minton has a great talent for describing his scenes and characters in vividly colorful detail.  Minton's ability to drive the story across the genres makes for decidedly entertaining reading.  I highly recommend this book to teens and adults who are fans of adventurous science fiction!" -  Paige Lovitt for Reader Views.
"The popular trend of adding science fiction elements to horror goes well beyond jumping through portals as is evident in G.A. Minton's Trisomy XXI.  Minton offers up a compelling, frightening, and surprisingly touching genre blend that both horror and sci-fi readers will enjoy." - Becky Spratford for The Reader's Shelf at Library Journal Reviews.
"This book has a brilliant story so entertaining it is hard to put down. I engaged with this horrific tale from start to finish. I am delighted to recommend this book to every intelligent reader of science fiction, mystery and gore." - Ayesha Plunkett (Film/Television Producer/Scriptwriter/ Owner of Over the Rainbow Productions).
"Author G.A. Minton's Trisomy XXI is a book with an exciting and unique premise that will keep readers turning the pages from the very beginning all the way through to the very end. I definitely enjoyed Trisomy XXI. Author G.A. Minton has made a bold choice in choosing a young man with Down Syndrome as the protagonist of this book, and has done a great job at making him so much more than just a stereotype of someone with a disability. This read had action almost from the very beginning and will definitely be able to keep readers on the edge of their seats, even gasping with surprise at times. Any reader who enjoys a great work of horror should definitely grab Trisomy XXI. I am pleased to recommend this book, and will look for more from author G.A. Minton in the very near future!" - 5-STAR Review by Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite
TRISOMY XXI by G.A. Minton has been judged and named a Benjamin Franklin Digital Award SILVER HONOREE by the Independent Book Publishers Association (the IBPA is the largest publishing trade association in the United States), describing the novel as "A very creative story...an interesting use of the human genetic syndrome. Seemingly, a way to help all Trisomy XXI humans." TRISOMY XXI received this prestigious award based on exceptional content, design, and use of technology.

From the Author

A boy with Down Syndrome who holds the genetic key to the salvation of a race of dying aliens is relentlessly pursued by an otherworldly assassin!

G.A. Minton is the author of the multiple award-winning novels, Trisomy XXI and Antitheus. From his early childhood, G.A. has always been a diehard fan of science fiction and horror. Whenever a scary movie was playing down at the local theater, he was there in attendance with his friends, loudly screaming in terror alongside them. G.A. enjoys many hobbies, but the game of golf is one of his favorites, having lettered on his high school golf team. Besides writing, he also enjoys reading, traveling, fishing, swimming, snorkeling, working out, listening to hard rock music, and watching great movies—especially those genres that encompass horror, science fiction, mystery, and comedy.

Strangely enough, it was only after G.A. was rear-ended by a drunk driver and suffered a closed-head injury that he developed a newfound passion for writing (even though this story has the makings for a bizarre Stephen King horror novel, it is nonetheless true). After numerous visits to a neurologist and months of taking medication used by patients afflicted with Alzheimer’s Disease, his injured brain slowly began to mend itself. When the damage to his brain finally healed, G.A. noticed something very different in his thought patterns. Now, there was an overwhelming urge, a compulsive drive to put on paper fascinating stories that had formed de novo in his mind. That’s how TRISOMY XXI, his first novel and recipient of multiple awards, was born. One could surmise that the damaged neurons in G.A.’s frontal cortex had rearranged themselves into a different pattern, thereby enhancing the creative elements in his brain (a rare medical condition, known as “acquired savant syndrome”). God only knows. . .stranger things have happened! G.A. is now referred to as “the savant horror writer” by many of his friends.

G.A. has recently completed his second novel, ANTITHEUS, a dark supernatural tale of horror that takes Good vs. Evil to a whole new level. Currently, his brain is busy at work, meticulously processing the text for another story of the macabre that will both entertain and horrify its unsuspecting reader. One of G.A.’s trademarks is that his stories contain an O. Henry or Rod Serling surprise ending that would baffle even the likes of the great Sherlock Holmes! G.A. lives in Texas with his wife, a son and daughter, and two Bengal cats named Phinneas and Shamus.
