"It's an elevated journalistic skill to structure an interview right... Matt Posner could get a job on every newspaper I ever worked on." -- Andre Jute, Goodreads comment, 8 February 2014.

Simon Myth is School of the Ages Book Four.
Simon's family is attacked by a rakshas (a demon in flesh) that is also a gangster ... and Simon's uncle.
Simon has been devastated by the losses he suffered at the end of the War Against Love (book 3). Viratasur, a monster who is a member of his family, is too powerful for him to oppose.
Back at school, time has gone wrong as future versions of the school students appear at random, and some of them are evil.
Then Simon vanishes! He is lost in time, stranded in ancient India at the time of the Mahabharata where he meets its great heroes.
Can Simon return to his time to face this terrible foe? Or will he forever be a myth... SIMON MYTH??
School of the Ages is America's greatest magic school. Located on a secret island in New York Harbor, it's the place to go to learn a distinct and realistic form of magic based on concentration, visualization, and meditation. This series features the adventures of Leicester Moore, known as Simon Magus, beginning when he enrolls at age 13. A true example of the melting-pot that is New York, Simon is one-quarter each British, Asian Indian, Jewish, and Italian: all-American. Simon's life is full of adventure and sadness to which he brings his own fearless loyalty and growing power. You will also meet Goldberry, his British best friend and study partner, for whom sarcasm is a way of life; the gentle Leah Ritz; the big blustering Yakov Mermelstein, whose Chasidic upbringing makes him a little hard to be around (!); stern but caring teacher Dr. Solomon Archer; and of course the elemental-summoning Robbie Radish, the sassy Avery who is beloved by winds; and many many (many!) characters you will remember forever.
Every book is full of magic, ghosts and spirits, adventure, and danger, full of culture and history and real places in New York and around the world. In The Ghost in the Crystal, Simon and his team travel back in time to ancient Egypt to get rid of a malevolent ghost. In Level Three's Dream, they must help an autistic teen with magical ability who thrusts them into the world of Lewis Carroll's Alice. In The War Against Love, it's war to the death as School of the Ages takes on the vicious European cabal called Gott im Himmel, while Simon has a chance at love that may end in tragedy. And in the upcoming fourth novel, Simon Myth, Simon finds himself in ancient India in the company of the heroes of the great epic the Mahabharata.
School of the Ages features multicultural adventures unlike any you've every read before.
