Marullo Publishes His First Novel
Dr. Matthew Marullo, a native Long Islander, has just published his first novel, entitled The Octave Displacement ($17.95/iUniverse). This exciting 276-page sci-fi novel relates the strange adventures of Mike Chessel, a genius composer, who discovers "Cosmic Notes" - a unique set of musical notes that open up a passage to Antiearth, Earth's cosmic twin. But these notes can also unleash a destructive force, as evidenced by the cataclysmic event that occurred in Tunguska, Siberia in 1908.
