Karl Spain

Karl Spain and Aris Mardirossian have been friends for 30 years.

Their collaboration on this book deepened that friendship. A 20-year newspaperman (before the Internet), Spain brought a straightforward newspaper style to the prose while Aris’s life supplied the plot, the context; end in many cases, the dialogue.

This is Karl’s second book; his first is The Revelation, also known as The Peace Machine Hypothesis.
