About the Author
Matthew John Benecke is a writer of speculative fiction with supernatural and horror leanings and a craft beer blogger. He holds a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Finance from Baruch College where he graduated as a member of the inaugural class of Macaulay Honors Scholars. He also holds a Master’s in Adolescent English Education from Brooklyn College. While working at Baruch College, he was selected to develop, implement, and instruct a summer-long creative writing seminar for high school students in the College Now program serving as an adjunct lecturer. Since 2011, he has written and maintained The Beer Whisperers craft beer blog. The Beer Whisperers is followed by more than 50 breweries from around the world including nearly a dozen of the Top 50 Breweries as listed by the Brewers Association. He has visited more than 100 breweries, many of which have been reviewed on the blog. He has also sampled nearly 3,500 different beers. His literary influences extend well beyond the borders of popular fiction and include 19th century Gothic writers like Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, the Brontë sisters, and Henry James as well as early 20th century modernists like James Joyce, Thomas Mann and many of the great Irish poets. He draws creative motivation from the musical realm including the works of Loreena McKennitt, Nobuo Uematsu, Trent Reznor, David Draiman as well as visual media. Television shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, LOST, Fringe, Jericho, and The Walking Dead have all provided moments of inspiration as have video games like Final Fantasy, the Legend of Zelda, and the Dragon Quest series.

It was at the conclusion of Book 1 of this series that I was left with my jaw unhinged in awe. I am now at the end of Book 2 and find that I am left totally and completely gobsmacked.
If you add color to sound and movement what you will get is a rich, vivid, fluid, pure and well imagined piece of phantasmal fiction. That is exactly what you get with “The Walking Ghosts, Kosmogonia Book 2” by Matthew John Benecke. As we travel through the multiverses that Matthew has imagined for us we have little hope of standing back and just observing. We must become a part of the story and travel along on this wonderful journey/quest. It was for me a fantastic and fanciful journey/quest through these corporeal and ethereal worlds where a whole new society and ethos are created. It will have you wondering “just who are we really?”.
Matthew continues to be an expert and artful wordsmith in book 2, and the connection and flow from book 1 to book 2 is flawless and smooth. Kosmogonia is turning out to be one of the very best series/trilogy collections I’ve had the good fortune to read. I am so looking forward to the next installment in this series “The Metamorphoses (Kosmogonia Book 3)”.
Synopsis (from back cover): Tim Channing and Marcus Taylor escaped the apocalypse but now find themselves standing amid its aftermath. They know now that the Creature that haunted their dreams is not only real--it’s coming for them. Their only chance of survival is to find a lone girl hidden somewhere among the decimated American landscape.
Their journey is a race against time as the nightmarish Creature devours their planet. Traveling from ocean to ocean in search of the place of stone and light, the heroic pair must evade their adversary and his dark minions while enduring the brutal conditions of their dying world. Only then will they find refuge from the monster and learn about their incredible identities as they draw ever closer to fulfilling their destinies.
The end of the world is just the beginning.
