Overview

An immortal alien civilization, ten million years ahead of humankind, traverses the galaxy in search of intelligent life. On approaching contemporary Earth, they decide to test the human population by giving one person the power to work miracles. Will it be used for good or evil? The randomly selected human is hapless Mark Malone, an Everyman in a thoroughly boring job, working for a miserable boss.

He must discover the power on his own and does so through an hilarious series of miraculous events. Mark Malone is secretly in love with a beautiful executive assistant, Shari Hanson, who finds him amusing, but not the upwardly mobile man of her dreams. That’s all about to change.

Soon he is the most powerful man on Earth. This gets the attention of the United States Government, which considers him a threat to the national security. Soon the War of the Miracles erupts. Although Malone's intentions were always honorable, the ability to work miracles is too much for one slightly flawed human being. Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Editorial Reviews

Starcastle 2011
This book combines a science fiction with fantasy and a great romantic subplot. When most people are asked what they would do if they had the power to work miracles, they'll say eliminate disease,cure the sick, make the old young again and so on, however, they almost always forget about the law of unintended consequences, and how they might be affected by a power they think they control, but which gradually takes control of them. An addictive read, the makings of a terrific big time movie!

He heals a hospital full of sick and dying people, he turns a Category Five hurricane away from Florida and certain calamity. Even even convinces the woman of his dreams to fall in love with him. But to the Federal Government any man with such enormous power must surely be a threat to the nation and so the War of the Miracles Begins.
