Inhousepress presents NOW, a novel about Being & Becoming, which is now available through all major online distributors (Amazon.com, Barns and Noble, etc) and through Ingram. Oh, yes. It is also a romance this side and that side of consciousness. This side and that side of life, as we know it.
It has been said that we are where our attention is. We are aware of being hot or cold, hungry or thirsty, sleepy or wide awake, tired or rested, sad or happy, and so on... We are the sum total of our emotions tempered by the input from our senses. What happens when our sensory input is cut off? Well, at night we dream. But what if the input from our senses is cut off wholly, utterly, perhaps irretrievably, for a days, weeks at a time? What if our body is in a coma? This is what this book explores.
Another 5.0 out of 5 stars review on the Amazon.com for "Now", by Krystyna C.
Stan Law is taking us for a great journey into the unknown and hidden world of the unconscious. He has an enormous ability to penetrate this internal world and reflect on it. I really enjoyed this trip and had a feeling of floating with him and observing this rich mental landscape. I love his statements about creativity, art, and human potential. For example: “...Art is the act of overcoming pain, of overcoming suffering. Art gives you release, freedom. It puts you in touch with that within you that makes you immortal” or “I am my mind. I am the vortex of my creative potential.” Thank you, Stan, for this book.

Peregrinations of the Mind
This is a story of how a mind can be set free to roam infinite space where time does not exist, while its body lies in a coma, and what it can discover about itself, its being and its becoming. As usual, this reader was awed by the author's cosmic range of thought, global vocabulary, the boldness of his ideas, the potpourri of philosophical sources, and his charming self-revelatory candor. The marvel is that, theoretically, such peregrinations of mind are quite plausible. I have experienced them myself. They are quite within the realm of the laws of physics.
It's intriguing to contemplate Law's interpretations of scripture, ancient poetry and musings, and modern cosmology. An extraordinary puzzle audaciously put together! How he can sustain what is basically a stream of consciousness for 300 spellbinding pages reminds of Mozart's tour de forces of weaving together four or more counterpoints.
Well done, Mr. Stan I.S. Law!

"It is fascinating to watch a man to—literally—give up the world for the love of a woman. Fascinating!" (Joanne Brown, Montreal, Qc.)
What starts with a car crash resulting in a coma that immobilizes our hero, grows into a trek through time and outer space. Tragedy turns into romance, misery into humour, all held with the icy fingers of the edge-of-your-seat suspense. Fascinating story, and a very interesting read. (Bo Happach, publisher, Canada)
