Me? -- not really. Just cool. But if you want to see what cool looks like, go to the end of this post.
But at least my new book is HOT... hot off the press.
So light my fire and get your copy of Elysium's Passage: The Summit. You'll like it.
No, you'll love it!
How do I know? Because really smart people like you do. That's why you read these posts... right?
So where can you buy this literary gem? Thought you'd never ask. If you want to come over, I'm sure I still have a few hundred copies lying around somewhere. That way there's no shipping cost, and if you want, I'll even sign your copy as we clink a toast to your upcoming adventure on The Summit.
But if you don't live down the street from me, Amazon.com or Amazon.ca will probably be your best bet since all you have to do is click below and in a few days, you'll have it. It's now available in hardcover, softcover and Kindle, Kobo, Goole Play, etc).
Okay, that was subtle, but I hope you got the message anyway... as you can see, I'm kind of shy when it comes to asking for the sale.
But seriously, why would you want to buy Elysium's Passage: The Summit?
Well, if you've been following his blog a while and find some of my postings entertaining, provocative and mildly amusing at times, you'll love Elysium's Passage. Promise. It has all this and much, much more. After all, this is no ordinary fantasy... but then which fantasy is?
Elysium's Passage has lots of adventure with all kinds of bizarre things going on to keep you in suspense. And then there are all the thought-provoking discussions that go on around the campfire. Things you probably think about now and then. You know, little items like life, love, death and what might happen after this earthly phase of existence. The veil gets pulled back... but just wait and see what happens in the next books when things get pulled way back in Mystical Romance. Speaking of hot, even I was shocked.
This book might make you want to start a book club with your friends to help James sort out his issues with women. He's the narrator and bewildered philosopher-protagonist that keeps arguing with Mo and Eli about things he knows nothing about. Like most of us, he just thinks he does. There's plenty here to keep you engaged for months, maybe even years. Like one professional reviewer wrote, this may even change your life.
Also, with all the fascinating quotes from the humanities and science, including over 300 footnotes, you might find the book to be delightfully informative. Believe me, it took me years to research all this stuff. The first reader of the book said they felt like they had just had spent a year on the mountain at Summit University. And just when you think you're getting everything figured out, something else happens that makes the series even more enchanting with each new book, and the next, and the next. But you need to start with this first one, The Summit, or nothing else will make sense when the next narratives are released.
If you only knew what adventures you're in for over the next few years, you'd want to get started right away. So why not?

This blog is devoted to the Elysium's Passage book series and various ideas that relate to the content of the series. For more information see this blog's first introductory post: WELCOME TO ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE.
The Summit is the first in a series of five Elysium’s Passage narrations regarding a young British philosopher named James Phillips who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.
After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding about life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.
An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality and our ultimate destiny.
The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

And oh, that comment at the beginning about cool... here's the coolest kid in kindergarten... Henry my grandson.
The following comments are among the first Amazon reviews of Elysium’s Passage: The Summit. All are Five Stars! Others reader reviews are included below, along with excerpts from two professional reviews. To read full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on www.elysiumspassage.com
"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"
"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture and humour; Mr. Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”
“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging. I can't wait to complete this book!"
“Takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”
“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting, yet calming, experience that is not to be missed."
"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."
“N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."
“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”
“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humor together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”
“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”
“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.
“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”
“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)
“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.” (CLARION REVIEW)
