A New Look at the Universe that is Entertaining, Spiritual and Intelligent. I have read about a dozen books by Vietnam veteran author Brian Wizard and have enjoyed all of them for many different reasons; but his newest fantasy / Sci-fi book called Space Egg is really his best creative writing to date. I say to date, because he is already at work on a sequel to this fascinating and mind expanding novel. The opening author’s notes start the reader off with a whole new thought process about divine energy and God and creation. It is enough to hook you right there – then the book gets even more interesting.
The story takes place in Australia where Brian used to live and transports us to northern California and Reno, Nevada – other old vintages of the author’s personal life. I mention that because he has a feel for these places that he captures in mood of the story and through the actions of the characters. This book’s plot will not go logically to where you think the author is drawing the reader to. The twists and turns and events unfold much to your enjoyable surprise.
Wizard has an uncanny ability to make anything sound exciting through his prose and careful use of dialog. He skillfully paints his story with his words but it is his plot idea that makes this book worth reading. The ideas he throws out in the story are really mind bending and expanding. This book can be favorably compared to the works of any of the world’s best fantasy writers. The only difference between the NY Times best selling Sci-fi and fantasy books and this one is that “Space Egg” lacks marketing and so it remains an undiscovered classic.
I read this book until the wee hours of the morning to finish it. I was totally absorbed into the story and really wanted to know what happened. This book will please readers who like fantasy and Sci-Fi books but also to those who love a little intellectual stimulus with their entertainment. This is a great read.
