Author Biography

Mike Corbett has spent his fortunate life in the company of stimulating people in extraordinary situations. Along with "Laughter of the Damned" (a satirical sendup of heaven and hell) and "Mr. Nachron’s List" (a blend of romance, history and science fiction), he has written tactical books on poker and backgammon. Corbett is fascinated by the wavering border between reality and fantasy and he is a master of the transition from observation to interpretation.

Raised in Fort Lauderdale, Mike Corbett graduated from Rollins College and Crummer Graduate School of Business in Winter Park, Florida. He established an international reputation during decades of high-level game competition in addition to providing entertaining lectures and contributions to periodicals on game theory.

In Mr. Nachron's List by Mike Corbett, we learn about Ron, who is your typical everyday guy. He enjoys the fleeting pleasures life has to offer and does everything in his power to forget the pain that he feels from having lost contact with the love of his life, Lynn. Together with his friend Crystal, a beautiful bartender with an attitude that matches her looks, he strikes up a camaraderie that looks capable of surmounting any obstacle life throws at them. A seemingly fortuitous meeting with the mysterious Albert Nachron is about to test their budding friendship in ways they cannot imagine. He makes Ron an irresistible offer in return for the opportunity to be reunited with his one true love. Now all he has to do is stay out of trouble long enough to see the deal through.

Mr. Nachron's List is a science fiction adventure from Mike Corbett. The overarching storyline is based on the quirks of time travel. It can best be described as a series of uniquely interesting adventures on which the principal character embarks at the behest of the enigmatic Albert Nachron. The story is as informative as it is interesting and each chapter unravels a new mystery. I particularly enjoyed the detailed descriptions that Ron gives about the assignments he undertakes, while the combination of strategic historic events within the story is a masterstroke on the part of the author. It adds a touch of realism to the plot that's almost non-existent in modern-day works of fiction. When it comes to enterprising storytelling, this book does not disappoint.
