""The Lion in the Desert (Kosmogonia Book 1)" by Matthew John Benecke is a bit of a genre bending experience...His use of the English language as a landscape for this amazing story is a true work of art by a wordsmith artist. I was totally left with my jaw unhinged and left in a land of wonderment. An excellent start to what I believe will be an excellent series of books." - William C. Bitner, Jr., Book Review Village

This is a story that is best read slowly and carefully. It is written with the hand of a master, and I continually found myself comparing the work to Stephen King. The book is a collection of several novels, interconnected with Tim's story being the predominant one. This is not a quick airy read, but rather a compelling and thought provoking tale. I encourage you to give it a read.
Written in the same vein as Neuromancer, it will make you question the meaning of life and the possibilities that exist within the mind's eye.

“The Lion in the Desert (Kosmogonia Book 1)” by Matthew John Benecke is a bit of a genre bending experience. I love books like this that step outside the boundaries of any one genre and give you a hodgepodge of a few different genres in one reading. Matthew gives you alternate worlds, a bit of science fiction, some paranormal/occult with a tarot reading Oracle, suspense, thrills, and quite a bit of action and a great deal of imagination. His use of the English language as a landscape for this amazing story is a true work of art by a wordsmith artist. I was totally left with my jaw unhinged and left in a land of wonderment. An excellent start to what I believe will be an excellent series of books. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series “The Walking Ghosts”. This was my first read by Matthew John Benecke, but will not be my last.
Synopsis (from back cover): There is a thin line between reality and the world of nightmares; for Tim Channing, that line is beginning to blur. Tormented by a recurring apocalyptic dream, Tim struggles to maintain his hold over his life as insomnia slowly overtakes him. When a supernatural encounter occurs on his way into work one morning, he finds himself questioning not only his sanity but the very nature of what is real.
In a desert bunker hidden halfway around the globe, Dr. Calvin Brody holds the end of the world in his hands. An American expatriate hellbent on revenge, Dr. Brody finds himself on the verge of fulfilling his dream of destroying the country he once called home. What began merely as a quest for vengeance though might forever alter the face and future of the planet.
Amid the ever-present threat of terror attacks on his native New York and growing tensions between global superpowers, Tim must decide whether his nightmare is merely a dream or an omen of what is to come.
