B.L. Clark, an American writer from southern Arkansas currently living in Monroe, Louisiana who enjoys reading philosophy and fiction and pondering the mysteries of the universe, has completed his book “The Man in the Hall”: a thought-provoking exploration of what it means to be human.

Hidden away from the eyes of all the people of the Earth, there is a facility unlike any before ever built by man. Inside, twelve people live alongside technology that far surpasses anything ever known by normal human standards. Powered by a near all-knowing machine, they manipulate the minds of every human on Earth in an attempt to bring about the great cause, an event theorized to lead the world to a true utopia.

The newborn, Mercury, a man cloned from a previous worker in the facility, goes on a journey to learn about his new world and hears strange tales from his brethren about the marvels of their technology and of events that had taken place many years before. All the while, a nameless man awakens in a room that defies logic and reason, and the man must struggle to gain an understanding of how he got there, what his purpose of being there could possibly be, and how he is supposed to get out—if there even is a way out.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, B.L. Clark’s provocative fantasy explores the often fractious relationship between free will and serenity.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping and potent work can purchase “The Man in the Hall” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
