With their new science-fiction/fantasy novel, The Chronicles of Ara: Creation (Topos Books, February 2015), authors Joel Eisenberg (TV writer/producer) and Stephen Hillard (equity entrepreneur and philanthropist) deliver an enormously elegant tale of imagination, wonder and genius that rivals the creative vision and intention of the iconic Gene Roddenberry and his Star Trek universe.
Eisenberg and Hillard exquisitely combine the realms of art and science with a grand-scale fictional tale based on such realistic significance that the reader walks away with a magnitude of hope that our real world seems a much better place (if only because of just this book being in it).
In effect, the reader becomes the work. The authors, the work and the reader tingle and shimmer and shine as if in tandem with all the butterfly affects that any prized accomplishment - or accomplisher - or benefactor - could muster.
The Chronicles of Ara: Creation is simply a masterpiece creation itself; one envisioned by master artists. Much more than just an initial chapter in a series of planned books, this Ara chronicles in a new era of an inaugural experience of grandeur; a telling portrait painted with such vibrant colors of efficiency that it should be shared in awe, across the board, in every museum...of fiction and reality.
