'When nearly two hundred young people mysteriously disappear from a spa resort near Manitoba's Duck Mountain the event sets in motion a story that will span continents, travel light years and enter strange new dimensions; while diminutive medium Medina Bishop follows perplexing clues that lead her to a startling and dangerous revelation.
Medina becomes the hub around whom the story unfolds. Her impossible task is to save hundreds of dead souls from an eternity of tortured madness, but she is not alone. At her shoulder stands an earth elemental, Fargo, who was sent to protect her from the nightmare forces arrayed against her and with whom she finds a bizarre and touching kind of love.
Her liberty - and even her life – are at stake when she finds herself embroiled in a story almost half a billion years in the making.’
Derek E Pearson
2016 FINALIST twice over at the Foreword Indies BOOK AWARDS, American Library Association Annual Conference, Chicago, 24 June 2017:
• SCIENCE FICTION with Soul's Asylum - Star Weaver
• FANTASY with GODS' Enemy
The Sun: "Soul's Asylum is a weird, vivid and creepy book, not for the faint hearted. But its originality and top writing make for a great read.”
In his Body Holiday adult sci-fi trilogy Pearson introduced readers to Milla Carter, a beautiful telepath and killer, whose adventures have continued in the Soul's Asylum trilogy. The last volume, The Swarm, was published 15 April 2017.
With GODS' Enemy Pearson introduced readers to the enigmatic Preacher Spindrift, in a series that will continue in 2017 with GODS' Fool and in 2018 with Delivery From Evil.
Pearson lives on the London/Surrey borders where he spends most of his time at his keyboard imagineering new worlds or twisting existing worlds through the dark prism he uses instead of a brain.
He says, "When someone dies it has to matter. You have to believe a life has been lost. An author learns to love the people he lives with in his mind. They become real."
