Mr. Peregrine is an Average Joe … a high school history teacher who hears the words we all fear: “You have terminal cancer.”
This story is an unexpected blend of pure adventure and science fiction. The main character discovers a way to change the lives of his students … the faculty … and ultimately, he changes the future.
In his search for answers … for understanding … he meets Ann, a brilliant scientist who seems just a bit too interested in fulfilling his dying wishes. Her partner, Andrew, has developed virtual reality simulations that are so real,
they’re considered unconscious reality.
He can make you believe that you’re eating toast and tongue with George and Martha Washington… or playing a harpsichord alongside Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
To a history teacher with terminal cancer, this may as well be crack … or heroin.
In these travels, six hours can seem like two weeks … two months … or even two years. What a way to buy time when yours is so limited.
Peregrine’s epic journeys stimulate his renewed passion for teaching, and his students roar back to life. However, when all is said and done, this adventure is about the best-seller he writes at the end of his journeys.
Reviews for the Book
This is a well written, edited, and researched book which is worth the read on all counts.Great storyline and plot. I would define this a an original concept to an otherwise insurmountable problem. Kudos to the author on his endeavors! - Denis Tougas
About the Author: Rick Incorvia
I was one of nine children growing up in the 70’s where controlled chaos was the status quo. In my family, if you didn’t create your own image you got lost in the crowd. Admittedly, I was a bit of a trouble maker and sometimes liked being lost in the crowd, or at least unaccounted for. If I wasn’t scheming a plot to get rich, I was imagining myself as 007 or an Ocean’s Eleven participant. To quote my father: “You sure can tell a whopper of a story. We should have named you MaveRick.” Since so many have found my stories entertaining thus far, I’ve decided that it’s time to share them with the world. Welcome to the deepest, darkest corners of my imagination.
