This new age prophet emerges out of the ether and leads his disciples on a noble quest. A quest to spread his discipline, SPIN & MOD throughout the globe.

When his followers turn him onto the Grateful Dead he teams up with spirit of Jerry Garcia to save the Planet from greed, hate and terrorismHe teaches a discipline which allows his followers to journey in other realms. Not when they die. Not by praying, not by performing a set of archaic rituals. He preaches a discipline that allows its participants to be one with the universe, right here and now by aligning their VIBRATIONS with the PRIME FREQUENCY of the CREATOR. He calls his temples of enlightenment ‘SPHERE’S’, they soon dot five continents. But who is this enigma and what is the true purpose for this visit? To assist him in this undertaking are such notable icons as JESUS, and Mohammed. However, as the movement expands from a fledgling non-profit, to a world renowned phenomenon, there are some that want him stopped, at any cost. Among these, Evangelical Fanatics, Muslim Extremists and a wealthy Realtor, who has a personal score to settle. If you are from Philly, there are dozens of local references, especially, the Oxford Circle, Castor Garden’s area of the Northeast . From the Delaware Water-Gap to the Tacony/Palmyra Bridge. I hope you enjoy reading this novel as much as I enjoyed writing it.
About the author
Author Biography –Glenn A. Segal—Psychedelic Prophet Eight years ago, as I sat inside DeJaView Optical; reading four novels, a biography and paging through an agreement of sale, I had a flash epiphany. Update a short story I had written as a teen. This idea (I was certain) would finance my retirement. Owing to the fact that I have no current pension plan in place I was motivated sufficiently to tackle this project. What I set out to create was a scifi-action novel based on a short story called ‘The Messiah’. I stumbled across this archaic material, scrawled on folded paper, while leafing through an old Stephen King book called ‘The Stand’. I read through this very rough draft and decided; go with the basic premise wherever it led. From that point on, I have been on a mission, like The Messenger in my book. I researched many subjects on my quest for a believable new religion. These continuing endeavors prove informative and rewarding each and every day. There are discussions in the book on a great deal of topical subjects from GOD to social justice. The media and our concepts of death are kicked around. Hatred, greed and the pitfalls that accompany them are examined. In the faade of a scifi-adventure series I explore the follies of mankind and our shaky future in this uncertain realm of time and space. Give me your opinion on this project that’s dear to my heart. I am a 56 year old, living in Philadelphia with the wife and kids. I work as an Optician and a Realtor in the nearby city and suburbs. Over the last nine years my life has taken an alternative route than what I had originally planned. Write a book, me, yeah right! All I can say is it’s like an ongoing circus unfolding before me. A grateful nod to my dog Sadie. Please check it out Glenn Segal
