For Immediate Release
Wheeling, West Virginia – While the United States touts itself as the world’s most diverse, accepting and opportunity-rich nation, its relationship with Islam and its Muslim population is deplorable to say the very least. But one true patriot and author, Anthony H. Baltimore Sr., is about to shake things up in a way never seen before.
It’s all thanks to the first volume in his new ‘Othello Greene’ series. Get this – the story’s superhero isn’t just African American, but a proud and admirable Muslim, too!
It’s all in a bold attempt to shine a more positive, realistic light on the world of Islam.
Lt. Othello Greene, the leader of America’s most lethal and efficient elite special ops group is captured, tortured, and mutilated by a ruthless, maniacal terrorist named Genesis and his group, the Global Supremacy Federation (G.S.F), who is hell bent on world domination.
Moments before his execution, Othello is rescued by a centuries old Islamic group intent on convincing him to use his unmatched skills and abilities for the good of mankind .In the backdrop, is the story of Othello’s past and the events which led to his life as an elite assassin. The entire world is racing towards the war to end all wars. Will Genesis prevail or will Othello put an end to his reign of terror?
“Let’s face it, public attitudes toward Muslims and Islam are simply not accurate and do not reflect the religion’s true philosophy,” explains the author. “My goal was to create a fun and engrossing story that would give the world its first American Muslim superhero, to change global views on how the religion is perceived. Discord among the West and Islam has never been higher; it’s about time we changed that for good.”
Continuing, “All of Othello’s flaws and complexities shine through, humanizing him in a very raw and frank way that will build synergy with readers of any background or belief system. At the same time, his culture and customs are extremely true and accurate to Islam, which I hope will serve as the catalyst for a civil, measured and harmonious new dialogue among Americans and other nations around the world.”
The author’s work has been received with critical acclaim. For example, Teresa Schmidt comments, “Outstanding plot and incredible action. I couldn’t put it down and can’t wait for the sequel!”
Justin Marsh adds, “Definitely pick this one up! It will keep you coming back for more.”
A debut novel offers the broad scope of a Hollywood blockbuster, with two formidable, high-tech groups at war. In the very first scene of this book, the titular hero is beaten and maimed, calling into question how the rest of this tale could possibly play out.

For a story that fell well outside my personal frame of reference I found Othello Greene: The Story Begins by Anthony H. Baltimore SR. a very engaging, action packed, read. Be prepared to spend some time with it, it is not a quick read. But if you like action, and all the things that go with it, you’ll like this book. Enjoy
