Welcome to the fictional metaverse of Mercury’s Wake where the paranormal, alien encounters, parallel universes, quantum jumping, and karmic destiny can’t hold a candle to real life.
Seven strangers cross paths en route to a tragic and unforeseen event, following in the metaphysical wake of an accidental astronaut (John K Mercury) en route to Mars in the bestselling book, JOHN K.
