The Dagger of Drytal: Compelling Novella by Michael Piro Marks New Generation of Sci-Fi Fun.

Aiming to whisk his readers away from the real world for a few hours each day, author Michael Piro re-captures the charm and allure of traditional science fiction with his powerful new novella.


Campbell, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/01/2013 -- Science Fiction has long been a staple of the literary market. However, as of late, many readers are demanding a new generation of sci-fi works that return to the fun and whimsical days of the genre’s inception. Filling this gap in the market is Californian author Michael Piro, as he announces the launch of his debut novella.

Titled ‘The Dagger of Drytal’, Piro’s story is re-capturing the hearts and minds of those who remember how true science-fiction used to be told.


“Intrigue and adventure abound in this sci-fi fantasy tale about a villainous space ghoul that attempts to wreak havoc on the Nebula galaxy.

Standing in his way is a group of heroes that are determined to restore peace to the galaxy that they love so much. Aliens, zombies, and robotic soldiers are all included in the mix that will take you to a galaxy far away.”

As the author explains, fun is the main ingredient of his ground-breaking stories.

“The Dagger of Drytal, like the two other novellas I have written, simply is a fun sci-fi book designed to take you away from the real world for a couple hours a day,” says Piro.

Continuing, “It features all of the things that you loved as a kid in a grown up story that could easily translate to the big screen.”

Piro also has two follow-up works available for purchase, with the following synopses:
