A sci-fi murder mystery set on a mysterious planet, with a twist ending that leaves the reader wondering just what they’ve been witnessing the whole time. Delmak-O is a dangerous planet. Though there are only fourteen citizens, no one can trust anyone else and death can strike at any moment. The planet is vast and largely unexplored, populated mostly by gelatinous cube-shaped beings that give cryptic advice in the form of anagrams. Deities can be spoken to directly via a series of prayer amplifiers and transmitters, but they may not be happy about it. And the mysterious building in the distance draws all the colonists to it, but when they get there each sees a different motto on the front. The mystery of this structure and the secrets contained within drive this mind-bending novel.

What could surviving over two millennia do to a monster that first lived in ancient Egypt, then called Nubia? The 2500-hundred-year-old monster named Apep lives in the sixth dimension. Unaware that an interdimensional portal exists, award-winning scientist Dan Adams falls into the sixth dimension while developing an energy efficient device and must now find a way back through the portal. He is trapped in The Death Maze devised by Apep. The two women in Dan’s life vie not only for his love, but to bring him back, while Dan’s close friend, the chief of police, vows to keep the story out of the headlines. Does faith have anything to do with science? Can man survive without both? The answer lies in The Death Maze, the first in a series focusing on a parallel dimension where God and man are interconnected for all eternity. “Richard Parnes, in his first published novel, has created a chilling, eerie story that keeps you engrossed from the first page to the last. At the risk of a SPOILER, the ending definitely leaves room for a sequel. Excellent first effort!” – Amazon reviewer “The book is quite entertaining if you are science fiction fan that embraces spiritualism. This book will definitely entertain you; the book will arouse your intellect and spirituality.” – Amazon reviewer
