 I AM SO PROUD TO HAVE FINISHED MY FIRST NOVEL. HERE IS A SYNOPSIS.  

Neither fish nor fowl, QUEEN CITY AND OTHER DIMENSIONS a novel by E.C. Wells is a sci-fi fantasy surrealistic trip through the history of Humankind; with an unlikely cast of characters including a Pope who spontaneously combusts, ne'er-do-wells with strange habits and tastes, secret government plots being carried out beneath Cheyanne Mountain, Colorado, time travel, space folding, astral trips to Puerto Nostradamus in Peru, sex trips to the catacombs beneath Orléans, France and the everyday sex and treachery in the Vatican Palace. With a nod to Gore Vidal, Marcel Proust, E.F. Benson and Terry Southern, the characters are caught between natural and man-made social and physical disasters: the Koch brothers, Monsanto, Trump, Scalia, talking gnomes, religiosity, devil worship, palace intrigue and a dystopian romance. They all come together wrapped in magic realism to make this a raucous romp through American society, politics, religious mythology, and the search for the ultimate Self; while the Earth is ending and aliens from Planet X are about to land in Queen City—resulting in the creation of a literate comedic satire with style.
