The Perception Experiment is a poetic and imaginative work of literature, a modern allegory of epic proportions that will leave you emotionally shaken.
The Experiment has Begun
"With The Perception Experiment, Jason Glover has created
a new genre: the sacrilegious hard-boiled Apocalyptic novel. Adept in
streaming literary magic, he's conjured a contemporary cinematic variation
on the Book of Revelation with words alone.
The Perception Experiment fiercely questions the function of belief. 'Becoming Too Aware' is the protagonist's bad trip in an ironic dystopia where pervasive, friendly-sinister theocratic repression provokes his contention with Lucifer and God.
Paradoxically, it takes a devout artist to issue such a work.
The Perception Experiment is a lively philosophical, torrentially poetic antidote to the 'Left Behind' books."

"The Perception Experiment is a tantalizing Apocalyptic thriller. An intimate first-person narrative, it is the story of an individual discovering the extent of his indoctrination in an autocratic system - a discovery that leads not just to liberation but madness as well.
The Perception Experiment fuses theology, psychology and mythology in a mad spiraling post-modern deconstruction of totalitarian thought and control. This intriguing book exposes much of what is kept hidden by authority, government, churches. and maybe even yourself."
