With the genetically enhanced super soldier’s murderous attack on Beau Walker, the research team’s fear rises to a critical level.
A postmortem verifies his physical and DNA alterations. But a life-threatening surprise is buried deep within his brain. Walker and the team must escape from the SHIVA complex with the biowarfare evidence. If they are to end the project, someone must enter the deadly Caduceus laboratory—safeguarded by nuclear self-destruct devices—to steal samples.
Adina Gerardo unexplainably disappears during their escape attempt. Using their powerful and deadly paranormal gifts, only her children, Emidio and Ana, can lead the team to her and protect them from their military hunters. The youngsters guide the team towards a prophesied encounter with the unknown and the boy’s certain death.
In a terrifying journey with a mysterious shaman, Beau crosses the threshold between physical reality and those lying beyond his senses, finally understanding the minds of Stefan Dürr and Adina Gerardo. Adina opens a portal to an interdimensional nexus, leaving the team and their pursuers awed and overcome with wondrous sights and an astonishing, otherworldly confrontation.
Series: The SHIVA Syndrome Trilogy (Book 3
Paperback: 174 Pages
Genre: Science Fiction Adventure, Occult, Horror
About The Author: A native Philadelphian, Alan Joshua (pen name) is a Clinical Psychologist with a background in Forensic Psychology and Parapsychology.
Joshua has published many nonfiction journal articles.
The Shiva syndrome, his debut fiction novel, is a science fiction/paranormal mystery and thriller.
Always curious about the unknowns of human experience, he is fascinated with creativity and paranormal abilities. This led to his involvement with Psychology and research into Parapsychology while attending Temple and Saybrook Universities.
He has explored paranormal abilities, including alleged reincarnation, using hypnosis and in-depth interviewing of a wide range of “psychic” practitioners. Among his prized possessions are a shriveled, mummified banana (a product of one healer’s bio psychokinesis) and a small Austrian teaspoon curled by a German “psychic” healer while six people sat around him to observe. https://alanjoshua.com/biopsychokinesis
Joshua believes that what looks “paranormal” is a bias given by those in “ordinary” consciousness. Further, he claims that the so-called paranormal is an extension of human consciousness common to all humans and has had evolutionary value in the past and the potential to shape humanity’s future.
The Shiva Syndrome incorporates his knowledge of Parapsychology and experiences with healers, intuitives, “psychic” sensitives, etc.
Unsurprisingly, he is a science fiction fan and has been influenced by such writers as Asimov, Bradbury, Crichton, Heinlein, Serling, and the extraordinary genius of Phillip Dick.
As an avid Star Trek fan, he is fond of contradicting Gene Roddenberry, believing that human consciousness and its potentials are “the final frontier.”
If you have questions for the author, he would be glad to answer them–time permitting. He would like to hear from you if you’ve had any paranormal experiences. Please contact him through his website listed below.
