Pampered, spoiled, self-centered, Greg Marlowe swaggered out of the Pleasure Dome one evening in late September only to find himself suddenly propelled into what he took to be an alternate reality.
With his self-confidence beginning to dwindle, he became repeatedly visited by robotic-like beings who seemed determined to subject him to pain – both physical and emotional.
Could he ever find his way back to the world he had always known, or was he destined to remain locked in a literal battle of minds against a force that no human being had ever encountered before?

This exceptionally well written science fiction story will suck you in and keep you guessing. The author does a masterful job creating a main character that is both despicable and likable. You feel that he is getting what’s coming to him at the same time as routing for him to overcome his situation. I can’t say more about the situation without spoiling the tale. The writing style is wry and humorous. It is written in first person narration that works perfectly for the story and allows for just the right amount of introspection. The narrator teases and intrigues the reader in such a manner that it is darn near impossible to put the book down. I loved this story and intend to read everything this author writes!
Phase 4 by David Dennis is a fascinating read and in a great way! While I was reading this novel, I kept being reminded of classic TV shows like "Twilight Zone" and "Outer Limits." If those shows were on today, "Phase 4" would make a super episode. Combining creepiness with a suspenseful plot, the novel takes you on a surrealistic type of journey that repels at the same time that it fascinates. For example, I never realized that a landscape of trees and grassy slopes could come across as so very sinister. Strangely atmospheric and unsettling, "Phase 4" is highly recommended for readers who prefer their reading material to be uniquely off the beaten track.
"Phase 4" is unique. The first-person narrative gives us a glimpse into the psychology of the main character Greg Marlowe. Marlowe is one arrogant, anxiety ridden character! His ride into a sort of alternate universe takes on complexities due to his altered mindset.
Suspense, horror, and a bit of humor carry the reader to a very satisfying conclusion.
