No past. No future. Only now.

Originally a self-publishing success launched on N. Frank Daniels's MySpace page, the novel Futureproof tells the story of Luke and his friends as they navigate Atlanta’s subculture of delinquents. In short order, the seemingly harmless high from his first cigarette sends Luke on a downward spiral that ends only after years of self-abuse. It is an extreme cautionary tale told with sensitivity, ferocity, and grit.

Jerry Stahl

“Be the first on your block to glimpse the future of American fiction - if not the future of America. Lock the doors, load your guns, and let N. Frank Daniels take you straight to a hell you can believe in.”

This book is raw, honest, & real. Although sometimes difficult to read because of language, sex, and the heartache you feel for the characters I didn't want to put it down. This book is more fact than fiction, and that is the most sobering thing of all.

this book was a major eye opener for me. not just about drugs, but how you feel about your life in general.

Demonstrates how environment can lead to temptation and how the human soul¿s struggle against addiction. Very well written. Left you at times very angry with the characters as they fail again and again to beat their Joneses and move past what obviously is ruining their lives. This so easily can be applied to more subtle addictions that are less criminal but just as life limiting.

I loved this book! It is a thrilling page turner involving adolecence, pain, love, drugs, and beauty!!! i completely adore the point of view mixing grunge and philisophical beliefs...i cannot wait for sequel! Buy this book and take time to look at another time full of awesome music and painful addiction...not to mention the fantastically awesome (as in omnipotent) ideas that can come off of a trip. you will love this read. it is offbeat, raw, and incredibly worthwile. Give Futureproof a chance.

This semi-biographical book was a real page-turner. I cannot wait for him to come out with the next one. READ it!
