John Caligiuri has a lifelong passion for literature and pens primarily Science Fiction and Fantasy. He has been able to blend his fascination with history and his professional background in software engineering to come up with some unusual story twists. His stories emerged from his curiosity about historical watershed events and asking, “what if”.
John Caligiuri lives in Rochester, New York with his wife Linda. She’s been married to him for over forty years and has supported his writing from the beginning. They have three grown children scattered around the country along with their first grandchild. For relaxation John enjoys gardening (which stretches his intellect attempting to outwit the rabbits and deer) and distance running.

It is a rare treat to read a book by a new author that is a page turner. “Cocytus: Planet of the Damned” was exactly that.
