—Jason Pettus, Editor
UNITED STATES, April 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — For those who appreciate the blurred lines between reality and the existences that lurk beyond, the recently released epic book KALEIDOSCOP SHADES: WITHIN BLACK ETERNITY by David A. Neuman catapults readers into such unknowns.
At 566 pages, KALEIDOSCOPIC SHADES is a doorstop of a novel that fans of sci-fi and paranormal thrillers can really sink their teeth into. It’s a tribute to The Twilight Zone covered in Alice in Wonderland, with its own soundtrack, including Satchmo’s trumpet, classic rock, a twisted version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, and still the strange and persistent sound of bells ringing.
OnLineBookClub.org calls the book “an exciting work of paranormal fiction. It takes you into a world where anything and everything is possible.”
It seems fitting that the author himself calls the novel an “escapist adventure,” explaining, “The world has become a pressure cooker. If I can be a release valve and those who choose to take the tour come back in one piece and invigorated, if a little shaken, then the risk was worth it.
Eleven years after a cataclysmic event tore the state of South Australia apart, the Triplow family has finally found peace. Moving to California ensured that Hastings’ past horrors and madness remained relegated to another time, another place.
But this false perception is quickly shattered when Bob Triplow is forced to face these things buried deep within himself.
Having to come to terms with what no parent would ever wish for their child, he will take his son on a journey to his past and the horrors of his childhood – a place far beyond Hastings… far beyond Australia “Southern… a place truly out of this world, where life is manipulated with destructive brutality.
In this dark, limitless dimension, surrounded by the ghosts of all that has gone before, Bob will learn that past events always find a way to make up for themselves – and that somehow those events are intimately linked to the imminent loss of the Earth.
In a final showdown, the fragility of life will be displayed with horrifying clarity, and Bob will struggle for his own sanity while his 10-year-old son is forced to make decisions on which six billion lives depend.
Readers will discover that the paranormal is never far from the surface of modern life, and what lurks in the dark knows more about you than you ever dared to imagine.
Editor Jason Pettus describes the work as “part Stephen King, part David Mitchell, part David Lynch… with [an] emphasis on wry humor and clever puns.
Book club reader Barb Tainsh says, “I was captivated by the reality and relevance of the story. Kids took me back to the novelty of childhood friends when you were young and your friends had innocent outlooks. The story flowed, and I was both eager to see what happened next and engrossed. Although many stories revolve around nightmares, in KALEIDOSCOPIC SHADES the nightmares were real. The people are real, the horrors are real. I felt captivated by a world of the incredible that was made terribly too real and left you wanting more.
The book is available on Amazon and at popular outlets where the books are sold.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
For DAVID A. NEUMAN, the fascination with the paranormal began when he was just a teenager living in a house that had more “residents” than immediate family. Having worked in a paramedical setting, where he has helped thousands of people over the decades to rediscover themselves physically, Neuman now wishes to transport people to a world beyond the physical, a reality that can nevertheless be seen and touched. He writes alongside his three constant companions: Safran, Cinnamon and Ginger – his own four-legged Spice Girls.
