A Novelette

After twenty-two-year-old rocket racer Raimundo Reyes breaks his three-hour 'round the moon record in a pre-competition heat, he's psyched to win the 2076 Spaceport West 10th Annual Lunar Flash Race in his personally engineered craft, an Ion Sting X-2100. But a dodgy multi-trillionaire entrepreneur dominating the former USA's Sector III, plus the gravitational pull of cosmic love with Starbright, a dazzling human-robot hybrid, re-launch Rai's star-crossed destiny.

Space Race




“Love the atmosphere and story narration. . .

vivid and gripping. . . The frame narrative is

more compelling than expected. . . has hints of

beat literature, and the story arc about an

art magazine is interesting.”                                                 


Inspired by the works of international artists, this award-winning Young Adult - New Adult collection of nineteen spellbinding magical realist, paranormal,  slipstream, dark fantasy, alternate history, and fabulist tales (with a connecting novella) is collaboratively authored by Joe DiBuduo and Kate Robinson:

Peter John Rizzo, a 1960 graduate of Yale University’s journalism program, inherits a floundering art magazine from his uncle, John Rizzo, with the provision that he must increase the circulation or forfeit all assets to creditors.

Peter Rizzo, Pete’s father, is a banker who scorns careers in the Arts and Humanities, and is jealous of his late brother’s influence upon his wife and son.

Classic Art Exposé’s devoted but unorthodox editorial assistant, Jason, and two university interns, sisters Shirley and Evie, help Pete start a monthly short story contest with artwork prompts, hoping to expand and save the business.

As the four friends publish the winning (and sometimes disturbing) stories over the following eighteen months, Pete battles his father’s attempts to ruin his business and his reputation, and in the process, discovers a sordid family secret. What else could possibly go astray?

Publishing a book is like stuffing a note into a bottle and hurling it into the sea. Some bottles drown, some come safe to land, where the notes are read and then possibly cherished, or else misinterpreted, or else understood all too well by those who hate the message. You never know who your readers might be.
