Damaged Beyond All Recognition (Infinity's Trinity Book 1)
by Alan Felyk on 2018-01-02
Paul Tomenko is no stranger to the improbable. He became a magazine sweepstakes winner and renowned 1960s counterculture writer by age 19. Now he’s traveling to and from God’s library somewhere outside the Universe to prevent the end of eternity. And if his task wasn’t hard enough, he must enlist the help of his two lovers—Maggie Mae Monahan and Allie Briarsworth—because of their unique abilities. But the trio discovers the preservation of forevermore can turn someone’s soul inside out. Literally.
The novel chronicles the life of an ordinary man under extraordinary circumstances. Paul is unwilling to accept a broken Afterlife that provides nothing more than eternal self-awareness. He is also reluctant to choose between Maggie Mae, a brilliant geneticist who has the uncanny ability to “connect the dots,” and Allie, a novelist who inexplicably senses past and future events in the cosmos. The unexpected is to be expected from an unusual cast of supporting characters: Cher the Gatekeeper and Katharine Ross the Librarian, figments patterned after two celebrities for whom Paul has lusted; Gronk and Grita, two “resurrected” six-year-old neo-Neanderthals who are the most intelligent humans on Earth; Tsutomu Yamaguchi, an innovative bioengineer named after a Japanese man who survived nuclear bomb blasts in Hiroshima and Nagasaki; and Dr. Peter Lexington Townshend, the head of a genetics laboratory that already has prevented the Russians from stripping politicians in Washington, D.C., of all their memories.
Alan Felyk’s unique blend of science fiction, romance, and humor travels the roadways paved by such literary stalwarts as Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Christopher Moore. And along the way, the novel examines our metaphysical questions with a mixture of mind-bending possibilities, laughter, and tears.
