More About the Author

Lex Allen is the author of the Imagine Trilogy, which includes the speculative science fiction thrillers No Heaven, No Hell and No Religion.

A Texas expatriate, Lex settled in Germany after long stints with the U.S. Army and civil service with the U.S. Department of Defense. He began his third career - full time author - in 2012 and has published two novels and a horror/paranormal short story collection, "Lovably Dead."

A semi-professional musician from the early 1980's through the present, Lex wrote, recorded and published fourteen songs with MCP Records in Austria, that led to accolades from the European Country Music Association as "Best Band and Best Album" in 1997. He currently performs with an acoustic trio at clubs and private parties in Germany. His all-time, favorite musician? John Lennon.

Raised in a Southern Baptist home, Lex quickly became disenfranchised with organized religion. He studied Buddhism and learned the concepts of spiritualism. Over the past several years, he has developed a solid, layman's understanding of quantum physics theories, particularly the string, entanglement and multiverse theories.

Combining religion and spirituality with science hypothesis and conjecture (as well as a large dose of artistic license), Lex formed the foundation for the Imagine Trilogy...and works that are planned beyond the trilogy. More than ten years of reading and research into these subjects, and the history of monotheistic religions and mythology, provided the foundation for many of the concepts found in the Imagine Trilogy.

Lex is currently working on his third novel, No Religion, scheduled for publication in early 2015. More information about Lex's writing and hie blogs can be found at www.lexallen.com

No Heaven

I found this a very intriguing read. Great settings and characters I can believe in and an obvious in-depth knowledge from the writer on the subject matter/s. Description and speech are real, showing this writers ability to bring the reader along on the journey.
Believable!
I've often thought of God/Jesus as coming from another planet. It makes sense. Who knows, in a few thousand years when mankind lands on another planet and mixes with the indigenous race we may be seen as gods too. This story takes that one stage further with...well, I'll let you read and find out, but if this is the second coming, then I for one will not be too worried.

I found the concept real, the story flows well and short concise chapters' keeps the pages turning. The pace of the story is excellent. I was disappointed to come to the end!
I suspect this might upset a few deeply religious people but that, to me is half the fun, it opens up questions that you just have to think about even if you cannot answer some of them. Great sub-plots keep you thinking too.

I wasn't going to mention Dan Brown but seeing as his name crops up...
I've now read both and know which I prefer. Please don't think this is the same sort of story as D B, it is not!
Will I buy the second and third books in the series? Is the Pope a Catholic?

Was Jesus Christ an alien visitor? I've been involved in the Episcopal Church for twenty years and find that explanation as good as any. It might tick off a few fundamentalists, but Mr. Allen is a brave writer for putting his concepts down on paper. He's also done his homework. I've rarely seen such depth of research and history in a Christian text. His knowledge of the Bible, first century events, quantum physics, and current science is remarkable. The story is imaginative and interesting. He keeps even the skeptical reader riveted to the outcome. He does a better job than Dan Brown.

If you're agnostic, unaffiliated, or open minded, this book is well worth the time and effort. If you love your fundamentalist dogma, you might need a stress ball--but you'll enjoy it as well.

Format: Paperback
"No Heaven" is very different from anything I've read before, as it is an interesting mixture of science-fiction, religion, theology and conspiracy. And as a Christian, I experienced an interesting mixture of emotions; finding it intriguing, frustrating, stimulating, and infuriating - all at the same time. First let's deal with the technical aspects. The book is easy to read because the chapters are relatively short, the paragraphs are short and there is a nice balance of dialogue and narrative. Although finding myself having to forgive several grammatical and formatting errors, I found it to be a non-laboured, stress-free read, regardless of the heavy subject-matter.
Rather than being a fast-paced, action-packed science fiction adventure, this story moves quite slowly, allowing the reader to get a very wide picture of how the current events (i.e. the widely debated, controversial, and confusing second coming of Jesus) are affecting different people in different parts of the world and the different world authorities. Near the beginning, nearly every chapter introduces a new character and their reactions and beliefs in response to the strange happenings. This is interesting - seeing all these different opinions of who Jesus is and why he's come - whether it's a hoax, whether he's a magician, whether he's out to cause trouble, or whether he's the real-deal Son of God.
All the characters are well described and developed. This makes the characters (especially the main characters) very well rounded and I find myself very interested to find out what happens in their lives, particularly: what is it going to take to get Jack to believe?

If you're like me, you've often wondered, if Jesus came back, what would he have to say about modern day Christianity and what its adherents have done with his teachings? Well, Lex Allen has written a book about just that, with his own unique twist: humanity got it wrong, and Jesus is a being of an advanced race from another world!

From the moment you begin this novel, your mind begins racing. Where is Jesus really from? What will he do and say next? How will humanity react? Along the way, the author introduces an array of really cool paranormal/psychic concepts, such as telepathy, quantum leaping, psychic healing, and multi-universes/dimensions, all in a way that makes you think, and lets the reader decide.

It's a book that was begging to be written, and I'm glad someone has. It offers something just a little bit deeper than most of what else is out there, and it's entertaining too, maintaining a good balance between being serious and being fun throughout. At times, it felt like I was watching a box-office thriller, and I mean that in the best possible way! I am excited to see what happens in book 2 and will be starting it soon.
