The ‘Prisoner’ Star Patrick McGoohan Dead at 80

When I was a kid, watching The Prisoner was my parents’ way of giving me a treat (they didn’t believe in candy, nor in sweets and desserts). I loved that show, with its sci-fi overtones, its Big Brother feel, and its star’s courage and determination.

It’s therefore with great sadness that I learned today that Patrick McGoohan is dead. Although it’s not old, I can’t believe he was 80. Makes me feel old.

Serialized books at Zumaya Publications: R. J. Leahy’s Tigra

Sign in every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Zumaya Publications for a serial presentation of R.J. Leahy’s bestselling, award-nominated SF novel TIGRA. This is the first in a regular schedule of serializations of both their best-selling backlist books and some of their planned new releases for this year.

Zumaya selected TIGRA as their first offering because the sequel, THE OBSIDIAN SEED, is scheduled for releaseJanuary 2009.

In the desert wastes of Ararat, Jeena Garza stumbles on the greatest secret in the universe. Marooned after escaping a hellish prison, Jeena–soldier, pilot, genetic experiment–wants only to rest and to heal, to forget and be forgotten.

But on Ararat she will be forced to fight yet again. To save a lost and dying race, she will set into motion events destined to change the galaxy forever.

Join Zumaya in the farthest reaches of space, where mankind confronts for the first time the realization we are not alone.
