About the Author
Stan I.S. Law (aka Stanislaw Kapuscinski) an architect, sculptor and prolific writer, was educated in Poland and England. A refugee from Poland at 13, then at 33, having overcome numerous difficulties, he began his search for the secret of life. Now, he is a successful writer, happily married for 25 years, with an assured future. His special interests cover a broad spectrum of arts, sciences and philosophy. At times he seeks inspiration in the Peruvian Andes, or solitude under sail. His books (articles, short stories, poetry) attest to his particular passion for the scope and the development of Human Potential. He authored more than thirty books, eighteen of them novels. His non-fiction explores Ancient Myths, Biblical Symbolism, Immortality and the mystery of Visualization. Three volumes of Essays (Beyond Religion) investigate the Nature of Being. Generally, if you suspect you are more than flesh and bones, read Stan Law. If you want to be sure, read Stanislaw Kapuscinski. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Stan I.S. Law always delivers on thought-provoking books that stand apart in the genre. This time, Enigma of the Second Coming, stands boldly in the science fiction genre as unlike any of the others. John, Hey, and J.J. were all dynamic and compelling characters that developed in dramatic ways and contributed to the story's momentum in valuable ways. I think there is so much more to read in-between the lines of these pages. Not only will I be reading Enigma of the Second Coming a second time, but as I am a fan of his writing, I will also be looking out for more of Law's work!
Transcending genres Stan I.S. Law’s stories have the remarkable ability to bring about introspection while also expanding your imagination. Enigma of the Second Coming has romance, friendship, family, challenges, hope, death, possibilities and freedom. In essence it parallels what life is and can be. Through the coming of Enigma man is forced to face an alternate of his reality.
Stan I.S. Law brings his talent to the forefront in capturing your imagination and taking it for a ride. He portrays the scenes with such articulate descriptions you feel a part of the story seeing every breathtaking scene in great detail. Stan I.S. Law also has the unique talent of bringing emotions fully to life for the reader. You feel all the love, apprehension, exhilaration and hope flowing through the pages.
I highly recommend it!
Eventually John realized his neglect of his children, and spent time with them, especially Hey, who was more receptive than JJ. As JJ grew into a teenager and attended a good university run by the Jesuits, he developed within himself a purpose to do something to irritate the head Jesuit and he started up a religious order by the Internet, promoting what he believed religions should be, and taking all of the donations he received and spent them on charitable foundations. He became a real organizer and the only person he truly listened to was his sister Hey. Both children were aware that there was a strong affection between them, but kept it safe.
After studying the heavens for decades, Canada and the US joined forces in going to the moon and settling it, perhaps with the idea of one day settling Mars. As with all of Stan's books, there is much science, mysticism, philosophy and romance sprinkled throughout the book. Actually the story points the way as to how to bring a type of Utopia to Earth. I recommend this book, but it is not light reading although not as deep as some of his works.
