3 covers Debts and Vengeance book

The Good Neighbors was originally written and published in 2008 by popular author John R. Dann. His other books also include:
Storm in August (2009), S.C.R.A.M. The Chernnobyl Connection, (2008), Song of the Earth (2005), and Song of the Axe (2001), and Song of the Gods.

After John's death in April, 2009, his daughter Janet (a writer and illustrator in her own right), revisited and fully illustrated this original tale of historic fiction.
Now, in 2017, The Good Neighbors has been fully revised and illustrated, and is being re-released,
along with the second and third installation of this classic historic trilogy: Irina, and Debts and Vengeance.
