I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Commander Chris and the Mystical Orb, by Mark Mattison

Mark Mattison is a good friend of mine, and I'm incredibly impressed that he's gotten a novel published. Commander Chris and the Mystical Orb is a science fiction book published by Gollehon Press and accessible to teens and young adults as well as your ordinary adult crowd. Mark's a great writer. He sent me a fairly polished draft of a Franz Kafka homage short story a while back and I thought it was brilliant. Commander Chris will no doubt follow suit.

The book can currently be found at the Schuler Books in Grand Rapids, Michigan and at Barnes and Noble locations throughout West Michigan. If you live in the area, I suggest heading over to your local bookstore and picking up a copy there. This way the book will likely be picked up in other Borders and BN markets. If you don't live in West Michigan, the book can be ordered through Amazon.

Go out and pick up your copy today.
