"Excelsior by George H. Sirois is the kind of book that NEEDS to be read by more people. He doesn't have the marketing push that far too many lesser literary projects get from the big publishing houses. He doesn't get the all-expenses paid book tour. But what he does have is far more important. A novel that is rich on story and character."
-- Steve Gustafson, 411Mania.com
Put down the pen. Pick up the sword. Unleash the hero within.
Matthew spent years creating the ultimate comic hero. He never dreamed the true hero would be within himself.

-- Tony Acero, 411Mania.com
