5.0 out of 5 stars A BUILDING WITH A LIFE OF ITS OWN ! March 19, 2012
By Janimal
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did you ever get the feeling that a particular building (your home, church, school, whatever) had a life of its own? In this fantastic story, the part-human/part-animal gargoyles (chimeras) are not the only things that come to life. A once magnificent building with a small church inside (its heart and soul?) falls into ruins, but is transformed as needed for the many humans (and spirits) who occupy it over many decades.

The story revolves primarily around Jerry, whose life is inextricably intertwined with the building as it goes through different phases of its own existence -- while Jerry experiences his own growth, his inner turmoil and his battles with beasts -- on his journey through life. There are many levels and dimensions for readers to enjoy here -- it's got everything -- just enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars an engrossing read! May 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very well constructed novella. In an introduction by Dr. Paul, we are given enough history and background to proceed with the story itself without feeling confused or less than ready to fully understand this strange tale. The characters, both human and otherwise, were well described and I felt connected to them and their mission. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a psychological thriller with a healthy dose of fantasy!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A man who's seen his share of hard times finally gets a room and a job in an old tenement house - but this particular building has a history. As Jerry learns this history, he finds himself in the midst of a battle for the goodness of humanity. An interesting premise and well-told story!

"Chimeras" is a fascinating story about Jerry, a man down on his luck who gets another chance at life when he begins to restore an old building and learns that the gargoyles (or chimeras) on the roof are really more than just interesting stonework! Allegedly written by a psychiatrist after Jerry's death many years later, the story nevertheless presents a clear and charming picture of Jerry as he was in the 1940's, his difficulties and the difficulties in his community, the wonderful things that happened to him, and the very interesting friends he made. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely interesting April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this short, but awesome book very quickly. I loved every bit of it, including the history of the building that Dr. Paul kindly fills us in with to make Jerry's story even more worth while.

The 7 "friends" he makes are vivid in my mind as very exciting characters that I would love to see more of if it is at all possible that there can be more stories about these very possibly real statues.

Loved it, loved it, loved it. Buy this book and check out the others in the Dr. Paul series as well.

I hope we'll see more of these books in the future!

More About the Author

Mental health therapist Dr. Paul has been compiling accounts of paranormal experiences for over twenty years. No one knows how many accounts he has amassed. These personal narratives by patients range from abduction by aliens or fighting with ghosts to stories from those who claim to be modern-day wizards. They are all in rough form and have been gathering dust for years. In 2006, Dr. Paul released a few to a specialized professional audience for review. The lucky few that were privileged to read these rough drafts have been demanding a greater release of the work by the reluctant doctor.

A passionate science fiction and fantasy reader in his youth, Dr. Paul has studied the paranormal extensively in his adult life, giving him a unique understanding of the unusual. This has allowed him to offer a sympathetic ear and uncommon understanding to patients to whom other health care professionals have been unable to relate.

Dr. Paul is a skeptic at heart and claims never to have had an unusual experience. He has been quoted, "Most of my patients are suffering from delusions or misapprehensions and simply need my help." He has found over the years, however, that a certain percentage of the experiences related to him have no rational explanations other than exactly what the patient has claimed.

Pressure from his tightly-knit fan club at last convinced him to revisit his boxes of notes and journals in 2010, and to release one of his more unusual cases. With the permission of the patient involved, Dr. Paul went through the account to change many names and facts in order to publish the journal publically. "I am not a writer, just a tale re-teller," says Dr. Paul. In the beginning of 2011, the book Hamelton was made available.

The book was published as "fiction" because, as Dr. Paul said, "I would rather be thought a 'fictional character' myself than prove the authenticity of the autobiography by opening my confidential files." With his characteristic modesty, Dr. Paul made no effort to promote his book, but simply put it on Amazon and waited for it to be found. Unsurprisingly, the few that happened to pick it up demanded to hear more about the doctor and his journals.

By the end of 2011, Dr. Paul had taken four more journals out of the dusty box in his attic, got the rights to them, changed names and places, and did some basic editing for clarity. White Warrior, Abduction, Chimeras, and Silver Cord went online in January 2012.

His objective is not financial gain or to push book sales. Dr. Paul merely wishes to reach those people who will enjoy this type of work, and hopes that those people will chat about it to like-minded friends or write reviews to let others know about it. This will motivate Dr. Paul to believe that it is worth his time to put effort into distributing more of his journals for the enjoyment of others.
