Psychological Thriller with a reversed angle. [unorthodox]

Official Website of Mike Anka, Author

I wrote this book inspired by our latest efforts to connect with the "Universal
Village," which I believe will show results in the very near future. What sets this book apart from other "alien" books is the fact that it is written with heart and passion, giving the reader a chance to emotionally interact with the story's development and participate with the characters in solving the numerous conflicts. The book is quite unique for another reason--it's written in a reversed angle, the perplexity and new discoveries are perceived from the alien's point-of-view, giving the book a sudden immediacy which I tried to sustain throughout the entire story. The beauty and ugliness of our endeavors perceived by curious and humble extra-terrestrial eyes trapped in the middle of it all, forced by circumstances to react to the events.
Without giving away the plot of the book, I would like to assure my readers that it will be a rewarding and emotionally-fulfilling experience


Excerpt

The patient was lying on her back,
her whole face radiating a deep
sense of serenity. She looked
like she had finally been released
of a terrible burden. All her facial
muscles were relaxed now, her fine
nostrils palpitating under new
unleashed energies, she looked
beautiful.

Vaton nodded slightly and
began to close the incision in
the woman's abdomen. He used
the same technique as before,
his nimble fingers gently placing
the organs and various layers of
flesh in their original positions.
Almost like under a magic spell,
the layers of flesh were fusing back,
almost instantly, once Vaton's careful
hands closed the tissues placing them
in their proper places.

Wonderful Imagination! Great Storyline!
The new science fiction novel, PERPLEX VISION, by Michael Anka is a winner in my book. I am not a true reader of Sci-Fi, but I found myself glued to the pages to see what was coming next. Anka's ability to come up with strange happenings that most people don't even dream about shows what a wonderful imagination he has. This imagination, and the capabilities to process them into a great storyline, is what makes a good science fiction writer. Anka brought his characters to life which makes the reader feel that the incident he writes about could actually happen. I also like happy endings. PERPLEX VISION is one of the happiest to the point of bringing tears to the eye of the most hardened. I place Anka on par with the best such as Rodenberry and King, and highly recommend this book to all readers.
Review by Bobby Ruble, author of HAVE NO MERCY


Real Visionary Writer at Work
Perplex Vision is one of the most imaginative books I have read in a long time. The author has realistically been able to transport the reader from one reality to another, which is what reading is all about. The story shows a real visionary writer at work. Excellent story, characters. Twists and turns in just the right places. What else can I say except an excellent novel, so stop reading this review and go out and get it, otherwise you will miss out on one hell of a novel.
Stephen J. Williams, Author of "The Glowing"


BRAVO!
BRAVO! Wonderful! Very ingenious. I was emotionally moved on many occasions. One does not want the book to end. Congratulations Mike!
Johan du Toit, Publisher

Connecting On A Far Deeper Level
PERPLEX VISION. It took me by surprise. I was expecting "star wars"
and inter-planetary strife and found a much more personal and engrossing tale
of beings connecting on a far deeper level. At the same time there was
enough action to keep my fingers gripping the book. I was moved, and
thoroughly entertained. Can't wait for the next book!

PASSIONATE AND THRILLING ENCOUNTER
I felt reluctant about buying this book by an unknown author but the
cover image won me over. I found it later, very true to the book, which,
once started, I had to read it to the finish, had to see what the next
unexpected turn would be. The passionate voice and action of the
story, so unorthodox, yet so smoothly meshed made me feel humble
and excited. The hidden message of this exciting book is the
author's passionate love for this small planet and its habitants.
He managed to hundred-fold amplify this by presenting it from
the "visitors'" point of view, digging deep into their psyche and
confronting them with the human mind. The characters so real
and the dialog rolling, managed to draw me into a new, unexpected
realm, which I now hope will materialize in the near future. I strongly
recommend this book to others.

Perplex Vision 2000 is so visually written that it makes you feel that you are living the psychological thriller with unlimited dramatic twist. The characters are exciting, they moved me emotionally. The Author constantly keeps you guessing as to what is going to happen next. I couldn't put it down, in the end the Author leaves you wanting more
Reviewed by Lisa MacPhail 4/17/2001
Watching the characters develop and how they reacted to the circumstances kept me reading when I was suppose to be doing other things. Even though they are handed the same situation in the beginning, the paths they choose are individually theirs until they join in the end. Diane has attitude and kicks butt. The strong personalities of Diane and Vaton mesh well with the personalities of Geoffrey and
Uvigadva. Even though I've finished the novel days ago, I find myself daydreaming
about Geoffrey and Diane and their adventure.

Reviewed by William Rennie 4/17/2001
...."Perplex Vision" propels the reader on an absorbing intergalactic journey, where the destination is .......EARTH.
The Author turns the terrestrial tables and gives us a provocative glimpse of space travel from the perspective of the visiting aliens. Imaginative and creative insights into the power of advanced technologies lends Mike Anka's "Vision" credibility, and when alien and human meet on the spiritual plane, it makes for a very unique and entertaining read indeed
