Meet Eduardo Sinnombre, a regular jobless shmoe who lands an accounting job at a shady ecological research operation, deeply seated in a Venezuelan rainforest.

About the author (2011)

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, the author finds himself as a misfit there and resorts to writing for escapism from a society that doesn't seem able to digest him.He tried many years publishing in his home country but he found that market impervious to his many attempts of breaking in. So he switched to English as a last resort to outlet his creative efforts. The transition wasn't easy but he managed to achieve his goals by writing several short stories, which allowed him to discover he had the knack, after all.He enjoys sci-fi and owns a quirky sense of humor, so it's natural that his first two books handle these two areas.
