M.T. Anderson is an American author of fiction. Born in 1968, he grew up just outside Boston in Massachusetts. He went to Harvard University and studied English literature there and also at Cambridge University. He also earned his masters in Creative Writing when he graduated from Syracuse University.

Anderson has written many different types of books in a wide range of genre and audience going from satire to fantasy. Anderson has worked several different jobs before becoming a writer and has even used some of them as inspiration for his novels. He has worked as a cashier at a department store, a radio DJ, and a burger flipper, to name a few.

He is the author of Thirsty, a vampire novel for young adults. He also converted his experiences working in fast food into a fast food book called Burger Wuss in which he takes his revenge on the industry in the form of the written word. Anderson has also authored the satirical and futuristic novel Feed, which debuted to critical acclaim and was a best-selling book. In 2003, Feed ended up winning the L.A. Times Book Award in the category of YA fiction. It was a finalist for the National Book Award and the Boston Globe/Horn Book Award.

M.T. Anderson has also written some children’s books which of course include pictures in them! They include his first book, Strange Mr. Saties, his second book called Handel, Who Knew What He Liked, The Serpent Came to Gloucester, and his fourth book, Me, All Alone at the End of the World. He has also written a game book, called The Exquisite Corpse Adventure, which he created along with Calef Brown and Natalie Babbitt.

He is also the author of some other books for adults, including Landscape with Invisible Hand and Yvain: The Knight of the Lion. He is also the author of several series, including the Norumbegan Quartet, Pals in Peril Tale, and the Octavian Nothing series. M.T. Anderson also has contributed to two collections, Three Teen-Ages and No Such Thing as the Real World. His novella is titled The Old, Dead Nuisance and was published in 2011.

Anderson has also written a non fiction book, called Symphony for the City of the Dead, a novel about composer Dmitry Shostakovich composing a symphony during the bombing of Leningrad during a siege, which rallied sympathy for the plight of Russia during the height of World War II. It was published in 2015. Anderson has been nominated for the Michael L. Printz Best Book award for his books The Pox Party and The Kingdom on the Waves. He currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts.

In the Norumbegan Quartet, The Game of Sunken Places is the first book in the series. It was published in 2004. The main characters in this game are Brian and Gregory. These boys are really great friends and enjoy being funny and boisterous together with their trademark deadpan jokes and sense of humor.

When the opportunity comes up to visit a weird mansion at the invitation of a distant relative, they decide why not go? One day they are staying as guests in the home of this relative, and the next everything is up in the air as they unwittingly enter into a high-stakes game in the classic style of Jumanji. They are just kidding around and looking around the place when they accidentally find a board game. The board game is mysterious and looks old, and as you might have guessed, it is called The Game of Sunken Places.

But this game is not all that it seems, and it is part of a much stranger big picture than they would have thought. All of a sudden, they are playing this game, but they are also at the same time players in a second mirroring game in which the stakes are much higher than they ever would have guessed. They knew that they shouldn’t have accepted the invitation to stay at the weird mansion of a distant relative, but who would have thought that something truly weird would ever happen?

The boys have to deal with all sorts of things on their adventure. This includes warring kingdoms, trolls with attitude, starched pants and more. But with their wit and classic humor on their side, Brian and Gregory are sure that there’s nothing they can’t face and take on together. Pick up this book and see for yourself how this book is not just for young adults– it can be funny and engaging for anyone!

The second book in the Norumbegan Quartet series is called The Suburb Beyond the Stars. It was published in 2010. Brian and Gregory are back in this exciting and funny adventure. Set in the young adult genre, Brian and Gregory keep having adventures, but they also have experiences just like they’ve always had in their home of Vermont. Except this time they are getting stranger. It’s kind of reminding them of that time when they stayed at the mansion of that relative.

These times, the experiences include individuals not being where they should be, and even what appears to be an abundance of houses everywhere to the point where they seem like they are actively on a quest for world domination. This time it is not the same as that game that they played (and have been trying to forget ever since). No, this time they are dealing with something on a whole new level– at least that’s what they think.

Brian and Gregory were pretty sure that they wouldn’t play another game unless they agreed to it. But what if they don’t need to in order to be playing? When they visit a relative who lives in the woods of Vermont, they start noticing things. Things seem off, and it’s up to the two best pals to figure out what it is, what is happening, and how they can stop it before it’s too late. Pick up this exciting and creative book from M.T. Anderson and see for yourself whether Brian and of course Gregory can put the pieces together and save the day once more!
