THE MONORAILS OF MARS In the manner of a Hitchcock film, the suspense runs deep and the plot twists into the macabre and horrific. Who is controlling the finest minds of genius on two worlds? How will the invasion of Earth by Mars and of Mars by Earth bring about the desire of fanatics for Harm-aggedon? What is behind the collaboration of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison to build an "electric bridge"? Why are War Machines with Death Rays secretly manufactured by leading industrialists? Who is the mysterious Ada who has walked the Earth from the time of Noah? Why is a Las Vegas style religious theme park being built on Mars? How did the son of the Lord of Apes become involved? These and other suspense-filled puzzles are examined and solved in a delightful and humorous look at mind-control and religious delusion, in an old-fashioned pulp-style romp through the 20th century alternate history in Science-Fiction format!

Jul 23, 2014Monorails of Mars is an allegorical satire using science, religion how it grew out of an ancient ideal life that became corrupted with politics, God, or what a god is.

Jul 16, 2014“The Monorails of Mars” is certainly quite a creative, eclectic, amusing, and provocative work, on many levels. It combines a graphically descriptive narrative like that of Wilbur Smith, the unnerving twists and turns reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock, and the degree of cosmic fancifulness of the classic series “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and “Dr. Who” (although “The Monorails of Mars” is absolutely a unique and distinct work). It uses clever hyperbole in daring to compare rational objectivity against Orwellian-type, corporate-run American “religion” (referred to generically in the book as the “Tower” Society). It takes a cynical look at the monarchial leadership of contemporary evangelical corporate societies using somewhat macabre black humor to convey a deliciously cathartic irreverence – which many would find most fitting, deserved, and gratifying given the deceitful, self-serving shenanigans still very much alive within exclusivistic, parochial, high-control... More > fundamentalist groups. The material is worded, organized, and presented in the manner of an astute and seasoned novelist. The content is divided into brief chapters to provide sufficient variety to keep the flow fresh and free from monotony or stagnation. The uniquely personal artwork has a stark sophistication which lends itself to the raw yet pensive theme woven throughout. The overall flavor exudes cerebral intrigue wrapped in old-school sophisticated banter yet liberally garnished with raw visceral descriptions. This book will surely satisfy the palate of any traditional or contemporary reader, and it is particularly geared toward rational, thinking folks who dare to question the operation of mind control and religio-corporate hypocrisy. Terry Walstrom’s book is an excellent and riveting read for all types and ages!< Less
