Mathematics and electrical engineering scholar Ronald J. Fischer explores the implications of telekinesis in his science fiction novel, “The Powers of the Mind” (published by Archway Publishing). The author is embarking on a marketing campaign to expand the book’s reach.

In the book, tennis player Steven Thomas suddenly finds he has telekinetic powers and exploits his ability to win tennis tournaments. Realizing he has the capacity to do much more with his powers than just win matches, he decides to use his gift to make the world a better place. When another person with similar powers is spotted engaging in criminal activity, Steven is hired by the CIA to catch him.

Within Fischer’s novel, the author tries to incorporate not only entertainment, but also ideas about social change.

An excerpt from “The Powers of the Mind”:

The guy pointed a gun at him and said "Give me your wallet and your watch." Steve wondered, "Can the force stop bullets?" Then he thought "What the hell, if I die and go to heaven or wherever I'll find out why I have this ridiculous force." He threw the force field out about 10 feet in front of him, turned around and started to run. Two shots were fired but Steve felt nothing. Steve turned and saw two bullets frozen in mid air about six feet in front of him.
