Stan I.S Law
A novel for young adults... or precocious teenagers. This visionary (romantic) fiction will enchant all who are young at heart.
A bedtime story about a Boy Coming of Age. What began as a childish dream led to the edge of the Universe.
"... exceptional writing." (Kate Jones, Pasadena, USA)
A boy approaching puberty enjoys exuberant imagination, which leads him through progressive stages of self discovery. His imaginary travels unfold a world within him, most people don't even suspect exits.
Some swashbuckling youngsters conquer the seven seas in search of adventure. Others cross the expanse of outer space to sate their rampant imagination. Alec does it all. But few if any, in the course of their elusive quests, come face to face with a beautiful Princess who enables their wildest dreams to come true.
An extraordinary story about a boy who meets himself among the stars...
Stan Law, an architect, sculptor and writer, once again delights in exploring the full range of human emotions. Alec, a lad of 13, is just becoming aware of the hormones that are about to play havoc with his sense of reality. Undeterred, he marshals all his courage and fights on. And, in a way as mystical as it was unexpected, he is rewarded beyond his wildest expectations.
Latest 5.0 out of 5 stars review by Thomas Hollowell on the Amazon:
A Magically Revealing Coming-of-Age Story.
Threaded together in succinct prose, The Princess (Alexander Trilogy, Book 1) by Stan Law is a superbly written work adding to the author's already profound storytelling career. In many ways, this is a tale for us all, both young and old. It is a coming-of-age story high on life and hormones! It is a tale that breaks barriers and helps readers to realize that life's perspective is what we make it; we form our own realities.
What also adds greatly to this tale are the wonderful illustrations that add another dimension to the life of the book; it's akin to other stories involving a young boy on a path of self discovery and on the search for real meaning, such as "The Selected Works of T. S. Spivet." "The Princess" is a very enjoyable read and highly recommended read.

Finding the other self...
Stan Law has created a most absorbing tale of self-discovery. He has an inimitable talent for capturing concepts of the infinite in finite and poetic words, and presenting characters we care about, in this instance a teenage boy and the princess of his dreams. Who is she? The answer will widen the reader's horizons beyond time and space.

Adam on Dec. 06, 2010 :
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!
Anetta Bach on Dec. 04, 2010 :
There is fun and there is adventure in this book. But the Last Step is simply out of this world. I mean this figuratively and literally. Amazing!
Bohdan on Dec. 09, 2010 :
Finally major novels by the master of Short Fiction! I never imagined that a coming of age story could hold my attention. It not only did so, but the final merging of Alex with his imaginary Princess is destined to become a classic. If you’re young at heart, this is a book for you.
Chapter One, (excerpts)
Once upon a time, a long, long time into the future, there lived a Princess. She was.... How can she live in the future? It is as easy as living in the past. To tell you the truth, she really lives in the Present. Only in the Present - though most people seem to prefer living in the past. I don't know why. I suppose they live in their memories. When you do nothing much, you don't create new memories, so you have to live in the past. But not the Princess. She has so much to do that a lot of what she does spills into the future.
The story I am about to tell you all happened a long, long time ago, and continues a long, long time into the future. Sometimes it all seems like a dream, at other times it feels as real as the pink Christmas flowers on my window-shelf. It all depends what mood Alec is in. It also depends on great many other things, but Alec didn't know about them, until a long, long time into the future.
