ABOUT Massimo Marino

Massimo Marino
So, I was born in Palermo, and as it happened with countless Sicilians, I left it, back in 1986. I lived more years abroad than in my home country, and I have changed in many and different ways than my old friends there. It is always a pleasure to go back, but it is now 6 long years si More...



Your entry into an exciting Science Fiction saga: the death and re-birth of the human race.

Nothing could have prepared them for the last day. Explore the future of humanity in Massimo Marino's sci-fi debut, Daimones, an apocalyptic tale that feels like it could happen tomorrow. You may never sleep through a windstorm again.

Death swept away the lives of billions, but spared Dan Amenta and his family, leading them to an uncertain future. When merely surviving isn't enough and the hunt for answers begins, memories from the past and troubling encounters lead Dan to the truth about the extermination of the human race. Distressing revelations will give new meaning to their very existence.

Early humans shaped the future and seeded a plan millions of years in the making. Now survivors must choose: Endure a future with no past or fade away into a past with no future?

• It is a post-apocalyptic vision that is stunning in its breadth and complexity. It easily rivals the power of Stephen King’s THE STAND and Neville Shute’s ON THE BEACH.

• I don’t remember an apocalyptic story this hair-raising since my first reading of Philip Wylie’ s TOMORROW! over five decades ago.

• Marino pulls together an episodic and dystopian past history of mankind, and the promise of a new galactic spirituality for our species. Erich Von Däniken, Philip K Dick and Arthur C Clarke might all have been sitting around a table collectively weaving together the elements of the new start instigated by the Daimones. I can see Marino sitting at the end of the table rapidly scribbling notes.

• Daimones is a also philosophical book. Dan is constantly thinking, questioning, and at times second guessing himself as he searches for answers. The scenes are simple, but the context is rich. There are many underlying meanings in the writing, and you will be forced to ponder the seemingly endless possibilities as you read. You will be hit with many questions and dilemmas. There are no easy answers as the characters struggle to build a new reality and determine how they fit in a world that they no longer recognize.

In this post-apocalyptic story for the thinking person, Marino explores a myriad of moral and emotional issues as well as the mechanics of everyday survival. The timeline is natural, unforced and the European setting adds a fresh perspective. The exploration of human relationships and their importance, of personalities and memories, provide real heart for the tale. Though sci-fi is not my usual genre, I enjoyed Daimones, and look forward to the next two books in this intriguing trilogy.
