Phenomena

(2020)
A novel by

 
 

Phenomena is a story of intrigue, psychological distress, and one scientist’s quest to untangle the mysteries of human consciousness…

Amelia Charron is a neuroscientist researching brain disorders. She routinely uses astonishing mind-linking technology that allows her to enter the dream world of patients. Each night, Amelia acts as a guide through the bizarre wonderland of the mind – an assisted lucid dream. It’s a technique that reroutes neural pathways to heal the brain, but it’s not without psychological dangers for both the patient and the guide.

Orlando Kwon will do anything to keep the frightening voices at bay. Alien voices, he’s sure, but he has no idea what they are saying. The medical diagnosis: early stage schizophrenia. With his life in tatters, a referral to a specialized neuroscience team might be his last chance.

Amelia is startled by what she sees in her newest patient’s mind. Frightening dreams of an unknown world are accompanied by knowledge the man couldn’t possibly have invented and a language no one has heard. In a race against time, Amelia must uncover the deep implications for her patient, herself, and humankind – before Orlando inserts the final component into a strange device he feels compelled to construct.

From the author of Quantum Space comes an exciting new novel that begins in real science and inexorably pulls the reader toward the deepest wonders of our universe.

Acclaim for Phenomena

“I couldn’t stop reading it! Phenomena got better and better with each page, with twists and turns I didn’t expect.” – Debi

“I love Douglas Phillips’ books and have read his Quantum series of books at least twice! This newest book is also outstanding - a lot of fun and very unusual in its premise and conclusion. Another winner!” – Joy Tracey

“If you have read any of the author's previous series you will come into this book with high expectations, prepare to have those expectation exceeded!” – Shawn P Bolan

“Started off fast and kept me engaged.” – Jennifer

“His books just keep getting better and better. I have long been a fan of GOOD scifi, but lately the current offerings are only the same dismal dystopian themes. What keeps me coming back to this author is the science, which is at the heart of all his books. And also the optimism that all that science brings with it. Not all that end-of-the-world rubbish!” – jeanmarie

“I guess I’m a sucker for this type of novel: intriguing technology speculation, a fast-paced read, plus some curveballs thrown in.” – Stever

“This book is such a page turner, I finished it in three days instead of making it last the entire vacation.” – John Stephens

“His storytelling has evolved to the point where his vivid imagery stayed in my mind long after finishing this book. Don’t start reading this and think you’ll be able to put it down!” – Nancy B

“Understandable and fascinating due to the author's usual definitive way of incorporating facts and figures into the story line. I loved every single page of this book.” – magaliasue

“A quick paced story delving into the human consciousness unlike any other SciFi story I've read.” – Joe Z

“I'd really enjoyed the Quantum Series before and Phenomena is even better.” – Charles Martel
