The road to doomsday: Local author updates novel

“The world has hit a frightening high tide of reactionary, fundamentalist, strong-arm  madness, where religious tolerance, diversity, inclusiveness and truth have become existential threats, requiring extreme measures of self-righteousness in order to prevail. If left uncontrolled, where will it end?” 

Humanizing Abraham Lincoln

Popular Ajijic author pens new thriller

Robert Bruce Drynan of Ajijic is the author of “Domain of the Scorpion” (2009), a thriller set in Colombia and Venezuela and Panama, that introduces several characters we meet again in his latest novel, “The Shadow of Nemesis,” set largely in Mexico. “Domain of the Scorpion” was followed by “What Price Liberty?” (2010). which chronicles the air and naval attack by Israel, during the 1967 Six Day War, against the USS Liberty, a navy intelligence ship that was unarmed (two-thirds of the crew were killed or wounded). More recently Drynan has published two useful bilingual books, collections of both stories and articles: “El Dorado” (2014) and “The Last Tattoo” (2014).
