A comedy about forbidden love, presidential elections, foreign sci-fi movies, and family dysfunction in a fun packed 10-pager.

Update: FREE NEW GIFT TO ALL BACKERS - Signed print copy of a digital painting from my new series "Sci-Funnies"

Polaris's story begins at the Film History class at NYU, where Professor Izzy Morganfriedman is screening the Soviet-era sci-fi film 'Polaris' (the author's comedic take on Tarkovsky's 'Solaris') for his students.

A truly funny spread takes the reader into the fantastic and surreal world of Polaris - the twisted twin of Solaris - which is filled with puns on classics such as Alien and The Lord of the Rings.

In the midst of the screening, Izzy gets a call from his mother warning him about his former crush, Angela, who is returning to New York City.

And this is just the beginning! Get behind Polaris with your pledge and you can read and explore it yourself. Here are some amazing offers I have prepared for you:

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

My book is ready to go to print. From the moment I get the money from Amazon/Kickstarter Polaris goes into production. Usually it takes 5 business days to print the books. It might take a bit longer, but you can count on your digital copy to keep you entertained. I am prepared and nothing will stop me from getting this book to your mailbox as quickly as possible. And if there is any delay in the delivery it is only to insure that all books are printed at the best quality and everybody get what they wanted and more.
