My 6 Books

February 27, 2018

These 6 books of mine are all on all the streaming sites, Amazon, I- books, Barnes and Nobel, etc.
Lots of variety! Try one and see.

MY SIX BOOKS have been published on all the streaming sites. Here are some review blurbs. (Read excerpts on the Amazon, Tom Hendricks, author page.)

1. LIBRARY PLANET. Tom Hendricks’ Library Planet is an explosion of imagination and wonderful cultures from all the diverse planets… This is a story for those who want to get lost in a planet sized library without spending too much time away from real life. – Maria Stoica

2. CENDRILLON, the True Story of Cinderella. Tom Hendricks uses a unique historical perspective to bring new life to the tale of Cinderella…. Hidden within the story are lessons about love, loss and acceptable behavior, not to mention the definition of true beauty … Cendrillon: The True Story of Cinderella is a delightful version of a favorite fairy tale. – Melinda Hills

3. PORTRAITS, a novel of Art, Artists, and the Art Revolution. Tom Hendricks’ contemporary fiction novel, Portraits: A Novel about Art, Artists, and the Art Revolution, is an art lover’s delight. The author’s story captures the essence of the lifestyle and struggles of artists, especially those who’ve not been discovered or found by the gatekeepers of the art world. – Jack Magnus

4. TEN SHORT AND SHORT-SHORT PLAYS. Hendricks obviously is a good writer and also knows the theater well, since his plays can easily be produced by small theater companies without the aid of elaborate scenery, large casts, etc. He also knows how to make things concise and easily understood. – Raanan Geberer. Playwright Tom Hendricks must have an incessantly creative mind, and this comes through in each of his unique and playful works. Each of these plays would be fun to act out for novice actors or for ones much more skilled. I recommend Ten Short and Short-Short Plays to readers who enjoy short works of fiction, those interested in fun short plays, or actors looking for new work. Tom Hendricks’ work is definitely worth watching out for. – Chris Fischer.

5. DOWNTOWN WITH THE BOOK OF RENOWN. (Also titled “?”) The synopsis for Downtown with the Book of Renown by Tom Hendricks goes like this: “Two boys have one big adventure, when Bradley finds a treasure map and two keys in a memo book from the hand of a dead gangster. He names it the ‘Book of Renown.’ The map in the Book of
Renown leads him and his friend Tom downtown to the Clarks Hotel. But how will they get inside, and what treasure will they find if they do?” Though I thought this blurb intriguing, I also felt it a little meager. As it turned out, it was perfect and the answer to the question was not close to anything I imagined. – Lex Allen.

6. WRITINGS IN SCIENCE. Writings in Science, a history of the future in stories, essays, poems and plays.
Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks is a dazzling portrait of the world millions of years from now, as seen through the eyes of the character called “I.” It is the kind of sci-fi that can be characterized as visionary. – Divien Zape.
A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks is a beautiful collection of stories, dialogues, essays, and many things in between, depicting the world millions of years in the future.
Readers will enjoy the drama that features in the stories, the tight prose in the essays, and the compelling, somewhat symbolic characters. Tom Hendricks exhibits a very rich imagination in this entertaining work.
The author covers a variety of themes in a variety of styles, including ethical issues, scientific inventions, culture and politics.
The Setting is captivating. I was drawn in by the images the author conjured through the beautiful writing. It’s a work that will be adored by fans of sci-fi, short stories, futuristic essays and fantasy. – Arya Fomonyuy.
Writings in Science: A History of the Future by Tom Hendricks is a collection of poems, essays and stories all compiled into a novel, written in two parts. The reader is taken to a world where the earth is no longer viable and is, in fact, dying because of the sun. People are leaving the blue planet in droves and one man with the name of “I” works to gather his favorite science writings to preserve them as a legacy for the future. Follow the history in this book and all of the changes that have happened to the planet before it began its death throes. – Kathryn Bennett.

The last issue of zine Musea had a page of some recent reviews I’ve gotten for these novels, Cendrillo0n, the True Story of Cinderella, Portraits, a novel about Art, Artists, and the Art Revolution, and Library Plane, a section of the larger novel in progress, Writings in Science. See what you think.
Also for a short time, I can send anyone a free streaming copy from Amazon, (kindle readers) for a paragraph review posted on my Amazon writer page.

REVIEWS

CENDRILLON, THE TRUE STORY OF CINDERELLA.
Tom Hendricks uses a unique historical perspective to bring new life to the tale of Cinderella…. Hidden within the story are lessons about love, loss and acceptable behavior, not to mention the definition of true beauty … Cendrillon: The True Story of Cinderella is a delightful version of a favorite fairy tale. – Melinda Hills

This version, which includes a carefully restored photograph of the heroine of the tale, makes the story an adventure and a delight all over again… And Cendrillon? She’s everything a fairy tale lover could ask for… most highly recommended – Jack Magnus

PORTRAITS, a novel about ART, ARTISTS, and the ART REVOLUTION.
Yes, at the heart of Portraits is a love story, a love triangle, but its soul delves deeper into a layered plot that draws out a more widespread implication: that art is the axis of all things beautiful, significant, and real. – Jamie Michele

The author’s story captures the essence of the lifestyle and struggles of artists, especially those who’ve not been discovered… I … enjoyed the way he builds up each artist’s character, artistic influences and personal style. The correspondence between Jack and his mysterious friend is compelling reading, and I began to look forward to each new missive … I had a marvelous time reading this novel and am looking forward to rereading it soon…. – Jack Magnus

I was drawn into it rather quickly and I really liked the characters …I enjoyed Portraits … and would definitely recommend it to a friend. This was a very well-written short novella with a good story-line. – Samantha Dewitt

LIBRARY PLANET
Tom Hendricks’ Library Planet is an explosion of imagination and wonderful cultures from all the diverse planets… This is a story for those who want to get lost in a planet sized library without spending too much time away from real life. – Maria Stoica

Library Planet by Tom Hendricks is a gripping mystery with a mixture of sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and even a bit of romance. I was amazed at how Tom Hendricks managed to bring out a story so deep on so few pages. – Faridah Nassozi

Library Planet is exactly what it says it is; an outstanding look into the very core of human evolution and its repository of knowledge. I started the first page dubiously, thinking that I would run through the book in an hour or two, and finished the last page a week later with a satisfied sigh! This is a book of originality, vision, imagination
and content. – Deepak Menon

Library Planet is hauntingly beautiful, and the author’s use of language and imagery throughout the work is inspired. This story is part fantasy, part fable, and totally awesome; and it’s most highly recommended. Wow! This is breathtakingly good. Bravo! – Jack Magnus
