Saturday at the Penguinate Booth (Space 227) at Ogden UnCon 2019: Darren Lamb and Tiny Avengers

Patch Penguin and the Avengers

Author Darren Lamb is scheduled to be with us from 1 pm to 2 pm to sign his books. Darren is a practicing Buddhist and former Marine who infuses his fiction with his life experiences and Buddhist philosophy. If you like zombies and wonder how reincarnation would be affected by the zombie apocalypse, you might try “Rebirth: A Zombie Tale.” Come meet Darren and go away with stories that are uplifting and original.

The first two people that come to the Penguinate booth and say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity” will get a tiny avenger. These figures come from the Kinder Egg collection and are left in their “surprise” packaging.

Mini-movie posters from Russia and books are available. Come say “Hi” to uas and pick up a book, penguin, or Buddha.

Lilac City Comicon 2019

Ogden UnCon is in its first year, and we are excited to be a part of it. To celebrate this inaugural event, we’ll have penguins, books, a tiny Avenger giveaway and SLC Author Darren Lamb at our table signing his books. Lamb will be with us at Space 227 from 1 pm to 2 pm on Saturday to personalize his books for you.

Lamb is a former Marine and practicing Buddhist with over 30 years of martial arts training. He uses his life’s experiences and philosophy to create fascinating characters and gripping adventure stories. The truths his novels reveal are often set alongside gore and the human experience. Lamb has also co-written a book with his daughter Rowan. “The Worst Buddhist” is great for parents to read to their children.

His forward to my own book “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity” is as touching and real as it gets. Stop by the Penguinate table at Space 227 and pick up one of his books. We look forward to seeing you there!

Press Release: Local Author Partners with to Autograph Books at Ogden UnCon

Author Darren Lamb at Salt Lake Comic Con

                                                                            For Immediate Release: May 15, 2019

Salt Lake City Author Darren Lamb is scheduled to autograph copies of his books as part of the table at Ogden UnCon. Lamb will be appearing for one hour on Saturday June 8, 2019, from 1 pm to 2 pm.

Lamb’s books are known for combining gritty action with Buddhist philosophy. In “Rebirth: A Zombie Tale,” Lamb explores what a zombie apocalypse would mean for the doctrine of reincarnation. Lamb’s Sea of Sin series follows the adventures of a Catholic priest, a Buddhist Monk, an ex-Marine diner owner and a Life-Flight nurse as they confront their own basic natures and the worst of humanity.

“The spiritual component of my books is personal and important,” says Lamb. “I use the story and the philosophy to enhance the reading experience while delivering a great story.”

Lamb and his daughter wrote and illustrated the children’s book: “The Worst Buddhist.” As an artist, Lamb has created geek-related Buddha statues and crayon art.

Lamb, a former Marine, is an active Buddhist who offers meditation classes in Salt Lake City. He graduated from Salt Lake Community College with an Associate’s degree and from the University of Utah with a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and English Literature. Lamb is a self-proclaimed geek whose philosophy often refers back to movies and comic books to explain concepts that many find challenging.
