“I felt the wind of the scalpel, saw the glitter of it out of the corner of my eye as it passed my left ear and embedded itself in the brick wall behind me.” With an opening like that, it’s hard not to get interested. Mark Phillips knows how to draw the reader in, and glue them to their seat. Was this apparition real or just some trickery? Who, or what, threw that scalpel? I’ll never tell, but it’s an interesting road to the truth. For the record, this is only a bit part in this story. It gets better.

The Resquesth Revolution delves into the world of the paranormal. Is it possible that this book, science fiction though it may be, may have some trickle of truth? How much do we really know about other worlds, other events that seem out of place? Mark Phillips uses clever turns of words to paint a very vivid picture. As you read, a movie plays in your head. You can see and feel the action.

This is not your normal, everyday type of science fiction because there are just enough facts to make a person wonder. Order or pick up a copy and see for yourself how to write good science fiction.

  2. This book was awesome. I felt like I was there the descriptions were so good. It never got boring, it went from one exciting moment to another. I have read it twice now and it just gets better each time.

  3. Thank you Ron for the great review. I really wanted readers to be able to visualize the action as if it were a movie in their heads. Sometimes when I write, I visualize particular actors playing each role. But I’ll never tell which actors. Do other writers/readers use the same tricK. Who would you pick for Steve Marks—Edward Norton, Keanu Reaves, Johnny Depp, or someone else?
    Thanks Again

  4. Mark weaves fact, theory, and fiction so well that the reader doesn’t know where truth ends and theory and myth begin!!

    This is a book that can be read over and over again.

  5. I found not only the review of the book very enticing ( I liked the concept that it seems to blend sci-fi and the paranormal) but of course, the opening line:)

    I think all of us have had an “aha” moment and wondered just what the heck’s going on in the world around us. Sometimes, coincidence just doesn’t fill all the gaps in the unusual occurrences that transpire in our lives.

    Great review:) Excellent opening Mark:)

  9. The comments and the review tell me this is a book I can not afford to miss. Can’t wait to get myself a copy as everything I have ever read by Mark Phillips leaves you wanting more – a true storyteller in every sense of the word.

  13. I do remember what passed for plasma TVs in old science fiction films. I’m sure cell phones were science fiction also at one time. Lots of science fiction is probably stuff humans haven’t figured out yet.

  14. Good point Morgan, and with technological progress accelerating as it is, making predictions will inevitably make us look silly even sooner. But it’s so much fun!

  15. I wish I had have seen this earlier! Now I’ll have to play catch up, but it’ll be worth it from what I’ve read so far. This ought to be fun!

  16. Charlotte and Mark, It sounds like another book has been birthed. I look forward to reading it. I hope things are going well with you.
    Our big event is that Kathleen completed her BA from Rice in English and we are very proud of her.
