Description

Literary Titan Gold Book Award winner for outstanding worlds, characters and imagination...

Reality is but an illusion... hiding the unthinkable... and madness hungers for more...

Bob Triplow has found comfort in having escaped the horrors of childhood until he learns that he has merely passed them onto his ten year old son, Joshua.

Suddenly they are racing against an approaching storm like no other - for the horrors extend far beyond father and son, far beyond all that is imaginable.

They must abandon their suburban life within Corona, California, for a perilous journey into a dimension where unworldly chaos reigns amongst the depths of darkness.

Torn apart by horrific visions and memories, elements that should not be, that had no right to be, Bob will struggle for his sanity, while Joshua fights to seize the hands of time. To put an end to the madness that ripples across an endless vacuum, threatening to snuff out existence itself.

Advance Praise

"""Kaleidoscopic Shades: Within Black Eternity"" is a doorstopper of a novel that fans of sci-fi and paranormal thrillers can really sink their teeth into. It's an homage to The Twilight Zone overlaid with Alice in Wonderland, with its own soundtrack, including Satchmo trumpeting, classic rock, a twisted version of ""Somewhere Over the Rainbow,"" and always the eerie, persistent sound of tinkling bells.""--- BookTrib Review

""I'm intrigued by this story; part Stephen King, part David Mitchell, part David Lynch (especially that lovely section set in some kind of weird poker room inside the Earth's crust, which is amazingly surreal and like something straight out of Twin Peaks). I'm also a fan of your personal writing style here, with its emphasis on wry humor and clever wordplay.""--- Jason Pettus- Editor

Whilst Kaleidoscopic Shades has a really unique voice, I also enjoyed the camaraderie of the skater boys and the notion of the 'thick' that is infecting Corona being somewhat similar to the alien control of the small town in The Tommyknockers and the Loser's Club of IT. You and King are definitely interested in similar things, and specifically our fears - Richard Sheppard, The Constant Reader Podcast - The Canon of Stephen King

""IF TWIN PEAKS AND THE TWILIGHT ZONE HAD A BABY ... While I do feel Kaleidoscopic Shades: Within Black Eternity has a creepy vibe to it, placing it firmly in the paranormal genre, I cannot overlook the science fiction elements that complement the plot. There is even something almost thriller-ish about it, too, which will definitely be appealing to someone who enjoys a good genre-bender. Not to mention, there is a surrealism quality to be found in this book, one that is akin to Twin Peaks or The Twilight Zone, which will certainly provide paranormal lovers with ample entertainment."" --- Bram Stoker Award nominee, Monique Snyman

""Kaleidoscopic Shades: Within Black Eternity by David A. Neuman is an exciting work of paranormal fiction. It takes you into a world where times could be manipulated, and a whole nation can disappear without a trace. It takes you into a world where anything and everything is possible. I recommend this book to lovers of paranormal fiction. Generally, lovers of fiction would find this book an interesting read."" --- OnlineBookClub.org"

"From the gloomy depths of the abyss emerges an incomprehensible narrative of enduring fear that... dazzle, stupefy, and terrify readers to their very core by summoning their most primal fears... giving them the form of the thing they dread most." - the Bookish Elf

"""Kaleidoscopic Shades: Within Black Eternity"" is a doorstopper of a novel that fans of sci-fi and paranormal thrillers can really sink their teeth into. It's an homage to The Twilight Zone...

Bob thought that he escaped his demons from his past, until he realizes that he passed those memories onto his son. They move across the country to seek answers and to find away to escape these memories. An imaginative time travel thriller with suspense and fantasy mixed in. The plot and characters are fantastically written.
