I loved Sharing, and Dreamax, and now I’m up to my neck in cats and dogs and their complex, indomitable problems. If ever a writer showed us what our pets think of us, surely, Stan Law must be in the forefront. I shall never think of my menagerie in quite the same way.
PS. I also read Sci-Fi 1. Henceforth, I’ll regard the fish in my aquarium in quite different light. At least, I think it’s a fish…
It seems that Stan Law puts as much Sci-Fi into Cats & Dogs, as Cats, Dogs and other creatures, into Sci-Fi. Or perhaps he writes what can be termed Visionary Fiction, which stretches our view of the world beyond our everyday reality. Whichever is true, I love his work.
I’ve read Stan Law’s stories before, and I’m delighted that he finally decided to put them on Smashwords. This fact alone makes them accessible to vast numbers of people, who are bound to find them surprising, on occasion breathtaking, but most of all, in the tradition of the great American short-story writer William Sydney Porter, better known as O Henry, with an unexpected yet unavoidable twist at the end. Well done, Mr. Law.
Most SF writers seem to concentrate on technological achievements of the future. Not so Stan Law. He takes them for granted, and instead offers us the extraordinary consequences, which some inventions, trends, or attitudes, might have on us. We can only hope his prophetic warnings will be heeded before it’s too late.
To quote from the Amazon 5 star review by Alistair Forrest: “Stan Law's take on the awakening of Jesus between age 12 and 30 in Asia Minor, India and Egypt is fascinating, educational and entertaining… …if you have a little faith - it might change your life for the better.”
There’s little I can add to this, but to say that Law’s integration of ancient philosophies into what became the basis of Christianity is as fascinating as the story itself. I read the book almost at one sitting. Strange, considering I knew how it was going to end.
It is indeed a rare Jewel, wherein love is examined from so many different perspectives. Perhaps love really is a force that keeps the universe glued together. As usual, the quality we've learned to expect from Stan Law. .
Even the first 30% make it abundantly clear that this is not an easy book to peruse. Apparently the more effort you put into the Application, the more you benefit. I’m going to do one chapter per week and, who knows, perhaps, one day, this book, the Dictionary, will set me free.
Until today, I’ve been an avid reader of Mr. K’s fiction. Now, I’m a convert. I suspect his non-fiction will be packed with equal depth of metaphysical suspense. Imagine my surprise when I’ve learned that the author developed his philosophy in a number of books, before he started writing fiction. Wish more writers would do that! Thanks again, Mr. Kapuscinski (and… Mr. Stan I.S. Law!)
Five stars for the Gate - Things my Mother told Me. There is nothing I can say that could rise above “the classical grandeur and poetic beauty” (as stated in an Amazon review) that defines this book. What I also like about this book are the frequent injections of unexpected humor. Mrs. Kordos is a most unforgettable character. Read it.
I’m all for creating my own universe. According to Kapuscinski, we all do it anyway. Unfortunately, he hastens to affirm that, if we do so, we’ll have no one to blame but ourselves for the result! The trick is to do it consciously. Read Visualization, if you dare, but don’t blame anyone if your dreams come true.
If this book doesn’t waken you from your mental abnegation of truth perceived by your mind, (not just your senses), nothing will. Or, perhaps, you already live in a universe of your own making?
It’s been a while since I read stories about bushwhacking heroes; even longer since the antics of a thirteen-year-old held my attention. Well, they did. As for the last chapter, The Final Step, I reread it twice. I bet so will you. It seems that the author is that strange mixture of a novelist and a poet. Keep them coming, Mr. Law!
As I am sure is true for most men, with the exception of Romeo and Juliet, I’d never read a ‘love story’. I always assumed this was a strictly women’s territory. I was wrong. I loved it.
I wouldn’t mind being liberated by Jocelyn anytime. Only, the way she does it would enslave me to her forever. This is one of those rare books which, while being overwhelmingly romantic, elevates the concept of love between a man and a woman to an entirely new level.
Having read Kapuscinski’s Visualization — Creating Your Own Universe, I expected a great deal from this author. I was not disappointed. The Key to Immortality offers nothing less then promised. Not only does is show how to achieve immortality, but it illustrates how the great mystics of the past concluded that we, in the truest sense of he word, already are immortal.
It seems that Thomas, on whose Gospel—probably the best-preserved document of the Nag Hammadi Library—this exegesis is based, has done a great service to humanity.
Imagine receiving a book for Christmas wherein the first essay is entitled “I don’t believe in God”! It took me some 20 minutes to fathom the author’s faith. It came almost as a surprise.
Reading these Essays one must conclude that in a number of fields most of us have been substantially, and apparently willfully, misled by the so-called experts in the various metaphysical fields. I strongly recommend these Essays. If for no other reason than to get a balanced view of reality we live in. And if you are blessed with faith in the unseen, you’ll find it growing much deeper.
PS. You’ll also have lots of fun!
It is apparent that once you start reading Kapuscinski (or Law) you’re hooked. I know people who check almost daily for new titles emerging from this prolific writer. Not just books but articles, short stories, even poems…
The man is a veritable writing machine, yet he never sacrifices quality. A rare trait indeed. As for his Essays, it is fascinating to watch his philosophy develop and expand.
I often wondered what happens to our mind in a coma, but I never imagined such untrammeled diversity as presented by Stan Law. The author suffers from an imagination as rich and as all encompassing as the Universe itself. He steers his ship beyond time and space with the ease of a seasoned sailor. Well done, sir. And many we have more? Please?
With admiration, Adam Kerry
One may or may not agree with all the conclusions drawn by the author, but one cannot but admire the originality and depth of his perception, and the variety of subjects raised by him. Most impressive! Only, however, after I studied his Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism, I began to understand some of his views. I strongly suggest you should do the same. It’s well worth it.
There is a thin line that separates the author's spiritual reality form the mundane world-view we all appear to live in. For me he opened vast, new horizons.
Edgar Cayce, Ze Arrigo, Bruno Groening, and now Peter Thornton. The first three were men of flesh and blood. Yet… are they all imaginary? Or is there a Power that works through people with or without their acquiescence for the benefit of others. This is what this book examines. The depth of author’s perception and the attributes of human consciousness he postulates are astonishing. It is a first class read.
In a broader sense, this book is about the struggle each one of us has to face between our desire to impose our ideals on others, or allowing people to listen to their individual inner voice, to find the truth. The author chooses the juxtaposition of the Pentagon v. the Vatican, which represents the two extremes, although, the book shows that both sides impose their will on others with equal alacrity. The solution the novel proposes is astonishing, inspiring, and, I like to think, long overdue.
This is an extraordinary spiritual thriller. Bravo!
If you love art, music, philosophy, beauty, and… science, then read this book. Also, seldom does one find such an abundance of poetic and spiritual themes as feed our soul in this novel. This book might never make the sex-filled, gory, steamy, thrillers of New York best sellers, but is it a true runaway success for me.
Alec grows up to become a successful physicist. The more he departs from the Cosmic Merging (The Princess—Alexander Trilogy Book I) the more he pays for this apparent transgression. What follows is a spiritual, intellectual and emotional struggle—an ongoing Armageddon—to regain his rightful place in the universe.
Law spans different realities with the ease of a seasoned traveler. It is hard to believe that his ventures into the unknown are not backed up by personal experience. If so, Stan Law must be among the most fascinating living metaphysicians. Either that, or his imagination draws on realities inaccessible to the rest of us, although he insists that his ventures are well within the reach of human potential. Still, we pay when we venture into the unknown, even as Alexander Baldwin, the hero of the novel, did. Read it and then try… if you dare.
I can’t wait for the final part of the Alexander Trilogy. I’m told Sacha—The Way Back, is in the making. Soon!
Sacha is not an ordinary child. He feels out of place, not belonging, longing for he knows not what, showing signs of peculiar strangeness. As he matures, so does the mystery surrounding his fate. He plays, observes, studies, searches, sacrifices all to learn his true purpose. As he nears the fulfillment of his destiny, he begins to participate in the unfoldment of the mystery. Yet, even after he seemingly finds it, the suspense unfolds still further, until, at long last…
You’ll have to read it yourself. The story is quite incredible yet, strangely convincing. Read it! And don’t be surprised if the book turns out to be prophetic.
World Powers use any means necessary to divide various scientific fields between themselves. Even as each political bloc gains controlling influence in their particular specialty, Peter and Cathy learn that there are still greater Universal Laws that hold sway in the human equation.
A truly inspired novel by a recognized leader in the field of human potential. Bravo Mr. Law!
Having read “One Just Man” and “Elohim—Masters & Minions”, I was looking forward to see how Stan Law would resolve the realities he’d hinted at. I was not disappointed.
Winston’s Kingdom does everything I expected. It not only defines man’s ultimate destiny, but refuses to place limitations on it. (This may sound like an oxymoron but it is not.) I defy anyone reading the Kingdom not to wonder if Law’s postulates might be true. I know the book is fiction, but… many a truth has been said in jest.
Bravo, Mr. Law. And thanks.
It’s been a while since I’ve read any Sci-Fi, but, knowing that it’s from Stan Law, I couldn’t resist it. It seems that whatever Law writes comes in a complete package of love, family, romance, suspense, mystery, metaphysics and adventure. Now, more and more often, I also enjoy his surreptitious humor. In addition, his snippets of undisguised poetry make his writing utterly unique. Mr. Law is becoming an enigma himself!
A strange malaise imbues most of the human race. People become more placid, more complacent. They develop a strange predisposition for endless slumber, which seems to drain them from any desire for constructive behavior. The human race is dying.
Commander John Galt is given a slim chance to save humanity. Putting his life on the line, he ventures into the vastness of space, where he gains access to a reality that reaches beyond his wildest imagination. If he survives the mission, he might hold the key to human salvation. He might hold the Gift of Gamman.
Since I read about quantum tunneling, I was waiting for someone—some scientist, author or dreamer—to develop this idea into a practical application. Stan Law has done all that and more. He also offered us a scorching romance between a protracted virgin and a goddess, a story of love, tension, espionage, science and just about anything you can think of in this world, a good deal beyond. How he manages to do it I don’t know, but I love the way he does it.
The book examines our perception of reality shaped by science and religion from the point of view of the past, the present and the future. In as much as I find all three analyses intriguing, the author’s view of the future is both, fascinating and chilling. It seems that only few of us will continue to rise on the evolutionary scale, while the masses, the vast majority, will follow the dire predictions of Esoteric Buddhism (see H.P. Blavatsky). The author suggests that to assure our place among the few, we must reach back into the ancient myths.
He may well be right…
When in school, I was told to study the Acts of the Apostles. I found them boring. Many years have passed since…
I just finished reading Law’s Peter and Paul; surely a faithful representation of history, which reads like a thriller with historical murder story overtones. In addition, Stan Law shares his philosophy with us, enriching us with the depth of his knowledge and even more so with the depth of his metaphysical understanding.
An extraordinary book, a worthy successor to his Yeshûa—Personal Memoir of the Missing Years of Jesus.
I was among those who’d asked the author to tell us about Alec’s parents. Now that he did, I’m as proud as though I’d done it myself! Thank you Stan for this gift that many of us will enjoy as much as I did. Alec is as unpredictable as he was in The Princess, while Alex Sr. and Alicia added unforgettable characters to sate our need to know Alec Jr. better. Great stuff!
PS. Isn’t the cover work amazing? Whose sculpture is it? The family makes one wonder about the secrets that the book might have to offer. And it does!
Most of us find it hard to believe that the status quo, wherein the ‘few’ own 90% and the rest just 10% or less, will last forever. In this novel Stan Law takes it upon himself to show the consequences of such thinking. I will not give the story away, but it seems to me that the book is highly prophetic.
In addition, Law makes for an interesting case that various myths must have originated in reality, and suggests how such myths and the ensuing religions may have formed. I’m looking forward to Book Tree of the trilogy, where I hope he’ll develop this philosophy even further. It is hard to believe that all myths were made up out of thin air. It is evident that Stan Law thinks otherwise.
