Another reader, username Rgkmzk, was equally as impressed. They said that “It is fascinating to read a Sci-fi novel with as much mystery as one of Arthur Conan Doyle's novels, coupled with the fairy tale of Cinderella. You read through the convolutions of this novel, as if they were or could be real and then it ends with all is well.”
In fact, demand for his book has also spurred the idea of a movie screenplay.
“I am delighted to announce that I am working on a screenplay as we speak. A Kindle version of the book is also in the works – it’s a very exciting time!” Van Kaseman adds.

About Arthur van Kaseman
New Yorker Arthur van Kaseman is an avid Futurologist with degrees in law, philosophy and political science, and a former management consultant to some of the world's largest corporations. One of his assignments was to craft, for a well-known "think tank," the European Union from the old Common Market. It tested all of his legal and political science knowledge and skills, and even his philosophical ones!
Brought up on a farm in the Big Bend area of West Texas by a lawyer dad and pianist mother, he was exposed to the arts and entertainment milieux from an early age and began writing seriously by the 5th grade. His mother turned him on to science fiction, too, and he loved Asimov, Bradbury, Heinlein and Sturgeon. He was also a big fan of Gene Roddenberry's STAR TREK series, especially the Next Generation spin-off. In fact he thinks this book answers the question, How did Earth become a utopia in the first place?
Though van Kaseman has been a prolific writer over the years, most of his work has been expository in nature for private audiences. This is his first work of fiction and has garnered several 5-STAR reviews, which can be seen at the Amazon or OnlineBookClub.org websites. Mr. van Kaseman lives on the Upper West Side of Manhattan with his dogs and cats and has a geologist-daughter who resides in Australia.
