Markman's Home is a journey in modern Magical Realism. Using multiple narrative accounts with a mix of history, philosophy, story, and essay, Ronald R. Van Stockum, Jr. blends the present and past with a possible future after the world's destruction. The action takes place in familiar settings, fertile plains, palisades of stone towering above rivers, caves, waterfalls, and trees. Freedom against tyranny and slavery are at stake when humans turn against their own kind. They control Warts, wolf-like packs of wild dogs, and Mutans, human variants seeking to rise and dominate.
Author of Markman's Home, Ronald R. Van Stockum, Jr., has created characters as memorable as any in the realm of magic realism. Set in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1976, the writer recounts what-ifs with spectacular scenes in a rail yard, through hidden tunnels, and in old abandoned buildings. From the beginning when a visitor from another world pops up in a downtown Louisville ad agency, until the spectacular finale, the action ratchets up at a dizzying rate.
Fasten your seatbelts for another amazing adventure from the pen of Ronald R. Van Stockum, Jr. Bringing together characters that rival the Mad Hatter, Mary Poppins, or Voldemort, the author takes us with them on a fantastic space journey. Tony, the adventurous reporter, begins quite innocently by knocking on the door of Doctor Heironymous Newton, who leads him down a farm path to an unusual barn made of orange tile blocks.

And when it transpires that the link he kept with earth could destroy both planets, even some of Excelsior’s own people start doubting him. With Hodera on the march leading a deadly new army and an ancient foe rising more powerful than ever, everything both Matthew and Excelsior love is on the brink of destruction.

As an alien assassin tries to kill him, Matthew must decide what is more important: to save his own life or to retrieve an ancient artifact that could save two worlds. To stay the guy with growing online popularity, or lose himself to something he can't understand.

The silver of Miri's cat charm passed on through the generations. The silver of Jessamyn's scepter, the source of her illusions. The silver of Quentin's scrying bowl, forged by Merlin. All intertwine in Argentum. With Alistair gone a measure of peace returns to P.A.W.S., but Miri is tormented by nightmares. The silver charm that had recently hung around Alistair's neck is now in Miri's possession and seems to have taken on a life of its own. And then it mysteriously disappears.
"But how do I get in?" The narrator asks himself, just as Alice did before she followed the White Rabbit. In a similar land of magical realism, Ronald R. Van Stockum, Jr. sets up an escapade in "a long thicket of trees separating two sloping farm fields". We hike with Tony beyond a fallen fence with twists of old barbed wire wrapping into the tree bark of the forest perimeter. Encountering "Buddha-like" images, muscular snakes that grasp at his clothing, and rotting fruits from Hedge Apple trees, Tony ventures further into the unknown forest.
