The Powers of the Mind
About the Book
Twenty-seven-year-old Steven Thomas works hard as a professor of mathematics and engineering and plays hard at tennis in his spare time, playing professionally but without making much money. Everything in his life seems normal—until strange things begin to happen around him, like lamps that suddenly refuse to work when he is nearby.
Steve, it seems, has developed telekinesis, the power to move things with his mind. Learning to control his new powers, he first uses them simply to win tennis tournaments. As time goes on, he realizes he has the power to do much more—although he is curious about why and how he managed to acquire such power. He meets and falls in love with a beautiful woman but wonders whether the attraction between them is genuine or yet another effect of his new powers. Steve’s life begins to change drastically, and he decides he must use his gift to make the world a better place. Along the road to his destiny, he encounters the CIA, a bank robber with powers similar to his own, and aliens intent on invading the earth.
In this science fiction novel, one man given the gift of telekinesis must learn to use his powers in order to change his world for the better.
