Swampscott, MA (PRWEB) April 24, 2012

Author J.P. Stadtlander ( announced today the official launch of his debut book “Ruins of the Mind” on May 15th, 2012. The book, an anthology of short stories, focuses on science fiction, unusual circumstances and touches on the possibilities of what might be right under our nose.

An elderly home in north-eastern, Ohio has hired a handyman that has an unusual effect on those around him. At the same time he is hired, strange things seem to affect the residents of this quiet retirement home. Justice is served for those who are uncaring or unkind, yet rewarded to those who are compassionate and kind to others. Discover an elderly home like no other in “The Lantern”

A species which has existed with us for tens of thousands of years is about to make itself known to us. However, the knowledge of its existence is not the unusual part of this story, the reason for their coming into communication with us could spell certain doom for our entire way of life. Learn how in “The Ter’roc”.

J.P. taps into his psyche as well as that of the reader. He enjoys exploring the implausible, yet still finding a way to make it possible. “I have always loved the possibility of ‘what-if’ and enjoy trying to put myself in other people’s shoes and learning to discover how they might think and act if really put into the situations.”, states J.P. Stadtlander

The book also contains a story that puts the reader in the shoes of a character who is on one of the flights that collides with the World Trade Center and recounts what the people on the aircraft also went through in real time prior to the act. Experience it yourself in “Feathers in the Wind”.

“Ruins of the Mind” will be available in paperback on Amazon and at independent bookstores nationwide as well as Kindle and eBook on May 15th, 2012.

Ghosts of Jupiter

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 30, 2012

On Friday, June 22, 2012, visitors to the Museum of Science, Boston will experience a rock-and-roll journey through space and time, with the premiere of Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience. Celebrating the release of their self-titled album, Ghosts of Jupiter, the Boston-bred rock quintet has partnered with the Museum to create a new eye-popping music entertainment show in the Charles Hayden Planetarium that will take museumgoers on a fantastic ride into the outer reaches of the mind.

“The Museum kept what was great about the old Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd shows… then made it way better.” – Kevin Johnson, Berklee College of Music

Inspired by the classic rock of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Cream melded with the serious crush of contemporaries like The Raconteurs and The Black Keys, this Boston-based quintet is the rare act that merges all the things you love about rock music into a cohesive whole. Founded by keyboardist Nate Wilson, Ghosts of Jupiter have been steadily making a name for themselves in the New England music scene. The band features the twin guitars of Adam Terrell and Johnny Trama, along with bassist Tommy Lada and drummer Tom Arey holding down the band’s rhythm section. Powerful, fuzzy guitars with soaring, airy vocals; pounding drum and bass lines and ethereal lyrics; songs that evolve over five minutes and riffs that explain themselves in a second: it’s a classic rock feel with a futuristic aura.

Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience is a vibrant combination of the band’s eponymous album and the Museum’s cutting-edge technology. The newly renovated Charles Hayden Planetarium is the most technologically advanced digital theater in New England. Powered by superior full-dome video and audio systems, the theater has created a fully-immersive rock entertainment show that transports visitors through the outermost reaches of space, all underneath the Planetarium’s 57-foot dome screen.

Admission to the Charles Hayden Planetarium is $ 10 for adults, $ 9 for seniors (60+) and $ 8 for children (3-11). For information on tickets and showtimes, please call 617-723-2500, 617-589-0417 (TTY) or visit the Museum’s web site at For additional information about Ghosts of Jupiter, visit:
