Waiting for minimum critic reviews


On the surface, Alexander Christos is a seemingly upwardly mobile young professional rapidly approaching middle age. But scratch beneath the surface and what is exposed is a soul that is emotionally, mentally, and spiritually burnt to a crisp. He’s done. And he wants out… all the way out. But then, in the very process of fashioning his own demise, something intervenes. That “Something” is about to breathe new life – and death – into him. Lured to the Island of Diarma, Christos believes it a near-Utopian advanced living state. But it proves to be no Utopia at all; rather, an arena that employs a methodology that is at once brutal, merciless, and magnificent. In the spirit of John Fowles’ The Magus, Michael Staley’s Diarma will take you on a trip that will stretch the bounds of your imagination. In the process, it lays out a very interesting and feasible blueprint for mankind’s “Next Step.” Reality… is a Place, a state of mind in which you live, thrive, and grow… “One of the most fascinating places on this planet just might be the inside of Michael Staley’s mind.” ~ Deborah Smith Wotring, LCSW, MS, CRC, CCH, LCSW,MS,CRC, Monterey, CA.
