Anthony Borelli knew a lot more about Renaissance Italy than did most kids his age. He knew that it wasn't one country but rather a whole bunch of city-states. He knew that people spoke a version of Italian back then that was different from the Italian he had learned in school. And he knew about the Gregorian calendar, Pope Gregory XIII's attempt to wrestle holidays like Easter back to the seasons in which they belonged. But Anthony never expected to find himself in Renaissance Italy . . . or to be fighting the kinds of bizarre, bloody monsters he had only read about in the mythologies of the ancients...or to be the linchpin in a grand, desperate scheme to save the world of Man from the beginning to the end of time. How, he wonders, is he supposed to overcome the amassed forces of evil when he can't even overcome the town bully? Lost Days isn't just about a calendar. It's about demons. It's about blood and death. It's about magic, and courage, and crazy schemes . . . and in the end, the power of love.

About Michael Jan Friedman
Michael Jan Friedman is the author of 73 books of fiction and non-fiction, about half of them set somewhere in the wilds of the Star Trek universe. His first book, The Hammer and The Horn, was published by Questar, an imprint of Warner Books, in 1985. In the next couple of years, he wrote The Seekers and The Sword and The Fortress and The Fire, completing what has come to be known as The Vidar Saga Trilogy, as well as the freestanding novel The Glove of Maiden's Hair. Friedman has also written for the Aliens, Predator, Wolf Man, Lois and Clark, DC Super Hero, Marvel Super Hero, and Wishbone licensed book universes. Eleven of his book titles, including Ghost Hunting (written with SciFi's Ghost Hunters), have appeared on the prestigious New York Times primary bestseller list, and his novelization of the Batman & Robin movie was for a time the #1 bestselling book in Poland (really). Friedman has worked at one time or another in network and cable television, radio, business magazines, and the comic book industry, in the process producing scripts for nearly 180 comic stories. He also co-wrote the story for the acclaimed second-season Star Trek: Voyager episode "Resistance," which guest-starred Joel Grey. Friedman lives with his wife and two sons on Long Island, where he spends his meager free time running, kayaking, and playing single wall handball. He continues to advise readers that no matter how many Friedmans they may know, the vast likelihood is that he isn't related to any of them.
