Review by: Amy Taylor on July 8, 2014 :
Headless World is a thrilling adventure unlike any other. In typical Stan I.S. Law fashion we are astonished by his ability to combine the mystical, religion, science and fiction in the most captivating and entertaining manner. From start to finish this story will have you in suspense, revelation and finally in awe.

Author Stan I.S. Law offers us a sequel to the Avatar Syndrome where once again we meet up with Anne and her family. This time they will be exploring a shocking power struggle. Law’s characters are fully developed lending tremendous weight to his story. Their dialogue is natural and revealing of their personalities. Law’s ability to inject humor into otherwise serious plots makes for a fun read and attachment to specific personalities. I am always impressed by the amount of detail that goes into Law’s stories allowing me to fully appreciate his vision from situations, people, places and cities. They are all vividly present in my mind.

This action packed storyline had me on the edge of my seat until arriving at a brilliant climax. I highly recommend this story and this author!

Review by: Marlon (Marvin) D. Clark on Aug. 10, 2011 :
When it comes to Visionary fiction, Stan Law is, undoubtedly, the master of the genre. While others aspire to get their effects with murder, sadism or a gamut of other cheap effects, Law manages to maintain the interest, the tempo and the attention of the reader by presenting us with intellectual, psychological or even spiritual dilemmas. Amazingly, he solves them, before our very eyes, with the facility of a seasoned virtuoso. Amazing!

A worthy and great sequel to the Avatar Syndrome. For all who read it, The Headless World is a must.

Review by: D Piecuch on May 23, 2011 :
This is an excellent sequel to The Avatar Syndrome from Stan Law. The book continues the life of the main character (Anne) and her family. While struggling to come to grips with her "gifts" in the Avatar Syndrome, Anne appears much more comfortable with herself and her abilities in this book, while still maintaining some vulnerabilities and striving to fully understand the higher truth.

The author continues to bring his unparalleled knowledge and blend of ancient religious teachings, spirituality, and science to the book, and he further demonstrates his knowledge of the inner workings of the Vatican.

For anyone that enjoyed The Avatar Syndrome, I definitely recommend Headless World. For those that have not read The Avatar Syndrome, I highly recommend you give them both a try.

Review by: Hanna K. Loda on March 25, 2011 :
Read it in paperback. I read it well into the early hours, and I loved it. Now, you lucky guys, have in on Smashwords! It will hold your attention from first to the very last page. In addition I want to add a line from a review that Kate Jones posted on the Amazon:
“The author's intellectual range and exquisitely poetic descriptions make his work always exceed your expectations… Every line is a gift.”
I couldn’t have put it better myself. No, really. I couldn’t! If you don’t believe me, read it.

Review by: BozenaH on March 23, 2011 :
When I read Stan Law’s Avatar Syndrome, I hardly dared hope that a sequel might follow that amazing tour de force. Well, Headless World not only met, but exceeded my expectations. Law involves the whole world in his exuberant imagination, sweeping us along like a Tsunami initiated by a gigantic earthquake. I might add, that it is the author who provides the earthquake!

This novel will leave the reader amazed and, if they are anything like me, delighted. Perhaps it is time for a new world order….

Review by: Anetta Bach on March 22, 2011 :
The most diabolical plot the Pentagon ever devised to conquer the Whole World. I read it till I fell asleep then finished it the next day. So will you. The scary thing is that such a conspiracy could actually happen, and we would be hard put to find Anne to save us.

A fascinating plot, a fascinating resolution!

Review by: Bohdan Czytelnik on March 22, 2011 :
Throughout history, every empire, or power by any other name, attempted to impose its will over others, usually claiming that it is doing so for an objective good. This book illustrates how possibly best intentions of one man can create a turmoil that threatens to destroy the world civilization as we know it. The author finds a brilliant solution to the problem by turning tables on the offensive perpetrator.
An extraordinary book by an extraordinary writer.

Review by: Adam Kerry on March 21, 2011 :
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!
