Book Blurb: Part One (of a 5 part serial)
Abduction. Betrayal. Conspiracies. Murder.
Welcome to the future of Sports Entertainment!
Just when the American people thought that the action inside the ring of the Championship Gladiators League couldn’t get any more exciting, weapons have been authorized during matches. But no matter how dangerous this sport will be, Stephen Barker sees it as a path to provide a greater life for his wife and child and all he wants is a chance to get in the ring and face some of the most despised Warriors in the CGL like Togar or Vornakai.
Current World Champion Kyle Flyte sees the weapons authorization as a dangerous new direction, but he has no idea that Vornakai has something even worse in mind that can change the course of the CGL, as well as the entire nation.
This is Part 1 of a 5-part serial. Part 2 is currently available for download on Amazon.
Part 3 will be released September 21.
Part 4 will be released October 19.
Part 5 will be released November 16.

George Sirois was born in New York City and grew up in Poughkeepsie, NY and Richmond, VA. While in grade school, he and some of his classmates created a small group of characters inspired by Transformers and Star Wars. When he moved to Richmond, VA, he continued developing the characters and the universe around them, and in 1992, he created the character that would become the catalyst of that universe: Excelsior. He spent the next two years filling his spiral notebooks with stories about Excelsior and his adventures.
Sirois returned to NYC in 1994 to attend Marymount Manhattan College as a BA Theatre Arts major and quickly fell back in love with writing. Since graduating in 1998, he has written several short stories and unproduced short films and screenplays before co-writing the book of a children’s musical called “Halloween at Belvedere: A Monster Musical Adventure” (co-written with producer and director Joe Pospisil, music & lyrics by Howard Beckerman). The play was performed at Belvedere Castle in New York City’s Central Park on four different Halloween weekends between 2002 and 2010.
In 2010, Sirois released his first Young Adult Science-Fiction novel, “Excelsior,” which reached the Quarter-Finals of the 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest and was credited as a Top Pick by Night Owl Reviews. He is currently at work on a five-part serial called “From Parts Unknown,” a rewrite of a novel self-published in 2002.
A New Yorker always in his heart, Sirois currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri with his wife and dog.
