The Everlasting Beyond of Eternal Happiness

The best of all possible worlds...

In a future world where anything is possible, on a scientific mission to disprove the existence of God, Anthony has one thing on his mind: Marlene.

And all she can think about is chocolate.

Sex, Death, God and Chocolate

Things should be looking up for lonely microbiologist Anthony Germaine. As science officer on an epoch-making journey into space, he stands on the cusp of a discovery that could mark a new chapter in human history and propel his career into the stellar league.

But he is only a virtual entity in a spaceshipís computer and his personality files are corrupt. Plagued with acne and obsessed with sex and death, he canít keep his mind on the job or off the adorable chocolate addict Marlene.

With the computer due to switch itself off a week on Tuesday, he has precious little time to answer the big questions of science, belief and God, win the heart of Marlene, and find some spot lotion.

And to make matters worse, someone or something is bumping off the rest of the crew.

The Everlasting Beyond of Eternal Happiness is a science-fiction comedy about sex, death, God and chocolate that will make you laugh, cringe and hold on to your privates.

Homeland

"A ripping yarn...Homeland is funny, satirical, different, yet reminiscent of Dawn of the Dead, Alien, 1984, and a few other books and movies thrown in." Ian Hunter, British Fantasy Society

"Amos makes this perverse world come alive...the reader is pulled along with the fast action and an ending you couldn't possibly see coming." Neo-Opsis Magazine

"This story is put together wonderfully, with all the satiric elements and humor coming together for a most entertaining tale...of the Shopping Mall of Doom." Mrs Giggles, 84%

"The more I read, the more I laughed...It's a wild run through pop culture and the Patriot Act that'll keep you laughing on the edge of your seat, hanging on for dear life and listening for the subtly threatening voice of Homeland Security." Ash Arceneaux - Author of horrific romantic suspense

"This story definitely has an intriguing approach...adding in themes of fear of terrorism, shopping mall society, and other current issues. I recommend it...this is definitely a page-turner novel; this reviewer couldn't stop till the end." 5 Stars - Euro-Reviews
