Book One of the War for Haven

(324 pages, Fantasy-Sci-Fi Novel)

           Ten thousand years from today the universe begins to collapse. This impending doom is both premature and contrived -by an unknown force. The human race is now part of a huge interstellar empire that includes hundreds of alien species and artificial intelligence’s. A massive alliance of sentient life hastily forges a scientific enterprise to prevent the end of eternity. More by accident than design, the incidental result of these labors is the birth of an Entity who is a god... of sorts. A place called Haven is created as Her home -and the nature of space and time changes forever.

          In Her conception, She manages to open pathways to all possible worlds. Ours is not the only Universe, and there are other gods out there. There may always have been, but these days there are Doors available... and these days now include our present time as well. Your soul can be saved -if you side with the angels. But in this Multiverse, it’s often hard to tell just who is who. One thing is certain, -something is trying to make sure that Haven and all the gods are unmade in the remote corridors of the Continuum.

         This is the background for the story of an ordinary person who must complete a hero’s journey on the path of becoming a man, and above all -a human being. Science fiction, fantasy, psychology and philosophy interweave in this marvelously textured fable portraying eternal themes of growth and transcendence. The plot is as convoluted as DNA, and the prose is as straight as a bullet between the eyes.  Joseph Grodin discovers corridors to parallel worlds and that being an apprentice knight/wizard isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. He also learns that the most significant battles we fight are with ourselves.
The second novel, “A Hard Knight’s Work” continues these adventures of the Haven War --the war to keep forever possible.
