Los Altos, California – WEBWIRE

FernMacht is a potential thriller on both paper and screen.

MIT and Stanford-educated Peter Lobban published his debut novel titled “FernMacht” in 2015 under the CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. The title refers to the power or special ability discovered by the protagonist John McAllen, who envisioned a power that could be projected at a distance (hence the term “FernMatch”, with the German Fern meaning “far” and Macht meaning “power”).
The novel indeed provides great material for a sci-fi TV series. In a conversation with his father who’s a physics professor, John opens up the possibility of the human mind being able to exert force on the physical world, defying the laws of physics. The conversation takes a spiritual turn as John affirms his beliefs on the ground that if humans are subject to physical laws, then human consciousness is just an illusion, thus making life absolutely meaningless.
The philosophical drama later gives way to a series of exciting events: John travels to India to practice yoga and meditation to help him discover and develop “FernMacht”. Back in the States, he meets Rachel, whom he teaches his power. Soon “Fernmacht” reaches global dissemination – with far-reaching consequences. Such stuff makes the novel already exciting to see on primetime TV.
Is the world ready for a power such as “FernMacht”? Where will this power take John and Rachel? There is no putting down Lobban’s “FernMacht.”
The sci-fi novel last appeared at the 2017 Book Expo America.
