Such a fun story, complete with a struggling journalist, a grumpy ancient Nobel prize winner who knows more than he’s letting on, and a horde of BUGS attacking a senior citizens’ facility. I enjoyed the quick pace, the well-drawn characters, and the well-written introduction to a world similar to our own but somehow very different. -Amazon Review
Not only is Grant Highgrim about to be evicted from his apartment for nonpayment, his career as a reporter is on the line.
When he learns about the world’s oldest living man—the reclusive 150-year-old Nobel Prize winner Dr Henry Allsdipp—Highgrim is determined to interview him. He thinks he has found a way to get his floundering career on track. All he has to do is to persuade Allsdipp to reveal the secret of his long life.
On the day that Highgrim arrives to interview the ill-tempered recluse, everything goes wrong. A horde of demon beetles invades the home, seeking just one thing–Henry Allsdipp’s soul. Highgrim must conquer his irrational fear of insects to save the old man and his own future at the same time.
How can he save the cranky Allsdipp from the demons coming to take him away?
M. K. Theodoratus is a true wordsmith. Just read the first few lines and you will immediately understand my meaning. This author’s talent at crafting words goes far beyond the norm. “The Ignoble Nobel Prize Winner: A Tale of Andor” is a short story so artistically and creatively written it will stay with you long after you finish reading. -Amazon Review

About the Author
M.K. Theodoratus, Fantasy has been part of my life since I can remember, starting with a fantasy playmate who kept me company while I was locked on the front porch with my toys. My brother, Jerry, still hasn’t forgiven me for naming my friend Jerome. Yeah, my mother was a copycat.
My formal introduction to fantasy came with the discovery of the Oz books. I read every one I could find, even if they were larger than the other books brought to our school from the library. I became a serious book buyer when I discovered my dad’s army/navy store sold used paperbacks, including authors like A. L. Merritt, Andre Norton, and C. L. Moore–plus my favorite of favorites Leigh Brackett.
Now, I write fantasy about snarly elves, the Half-Elven of the Far Isles, or humans fighting invading demons in Andor.
I’m doing very little social media stuff at the moment, but I do have a website at mkthe odoratus.com.
