NEW YORK, NY, March 03, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- "Therians: The Awakening" is a sure thriller. The three book series soon to be released by California based publishing company, Over the Edge Books, is an alternative publishing company that publishes stories and art that may be overlooked by traditional publishers. The new release is a graphic novel that gives readers insight into the covert, underground and mystical world of therianthropy. A prolific story that chronicles the plight of a particular race of therians as they are trafficked and transported all over the world across the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. "Therians: The Awakening" is a realistic and riveting sci-fi fantasy that will keep its readers enthralled from the very first page. Providing more than pictures but compelling text, this novel definitely has the strength to one day develop into a motion picture film.
The author reveals that he has always had an obsession with werewolves, shapeshifters and things that go bump in the night since childhood. "Werewolves and vampires were never scary to me but intriguing," says B. Van Randall (aka rap artist The Ghetto Nerd). "Those who read will begin to change. Therians is more than a story about werewolves," says Randall. "It is a story of gnosis and knowing one's self". Graduating from Wayne State University with a B.A. in English, writing became an outlet for Randall - a way to express himself and avoid youthful pitfalls. "Not to be too creepy but strange things happened as I wrote Therians: The Awakening," says Randall. "I'll talk more about that later." He closes with a knowing smile.

About B. Van Randall:
B. Van Randall (aka The Ghetto Nerd) was born and raised in the inner city of Detroit, MI. For most of his life he resided on Detroit's eastside attending public schools and ultimately graduated from a suburban eastside high school. During his junior and senior years in high school Randall wrote and produced his first hip hop album with his lifelong friend. Randall eventually went solo, changing his name to Jezt Bryan (aka Red Eyez) and releasing an LP that featured several other rappers and R&B singers.
In 2003, Randall (under the stage name Jezt Bryan) became the first rap artist to perform for troops serving overseas on the military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The performance received national attention.
In 2009, Randall (under the name Van Randall) wrote, directed and produced "Family Ties: A Van Randall Drama". The stage play was publicly and successfully performed at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History. It received flattering local reviews. He went on to later co-create an experimental sketch comedy series titled "The Randalls & Co." A series later shared and fancied by the likes of Dr. Boyce Watkins and many more.
Today Randall is a rap artist (under the name The Ghetto Nerd), a playwright, author, screenwriter and poet. An all-around creator and wordsmith.
