It has been the rise of the geeks! But who are they? Are they all just Science Fiction and Fantasy Geeks?

Frank Fiore’s “Murran,” published by Indigo River Publishing, chronicles Trey’s journey to not only find acceptance among his peers, but discover his roots in the Maasai African culture his father told him about before his death. The Maasai, a nomadic Kenyan tribe, is also comprised of a class of men known as the Murrani, warriors focused on surviving by “respecting the meaning and value of family, community, elders, and themselves.” Though Trey wants to know more about where he came from, he finds immediate comfort and high self-esteem in his Warrior set. However, by traveling to Africa and living with his teacher’s Maasai family, he begins to understand what a true warrior is.
