Outskirts Press Announces the Release of Riveting New Fiction—Pericles and Me by Nicholas C. Nicholas, PhD


(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, September 17, 2019 ) For years, Dr. Nicholas C. Nicholas’s friends and acquaintances urged him to write about his work experience in the Middle East, Ukraine and Western Europe, including a stint training in an Apollo space capsule. The result is Pericles and Me—a novel based partly on his life and on the ancient Greek statesman Pericles. The book has been published by Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company.
In Pericles and Me, an American scientist and his British girlfriend embark on a romantic trip to Greece. Dr. Alex Giallouras embraces his Greek roots and even dreams up an illustrious confidant from the golden age of ancient Greece to navigate the international plot in which he soon finds himself entangled. With advice from Pericles, Alex attempts to navigate the dangerous shoals of Ukraine, the Middle East and US spy interests while staying true to his allegiance to his country and conscience.

This fast-paced novel transports the reader to locales all over the globe—from Greece; Ukraine; Heidelberg, Germany; Cairo, Egypt; and Washington, DC—as Alex encounters a plot to lead the Iranian government to believe that the Saudis are starting a nuclear weapons program to counter the Iranian bomb program and force the Iranians into negotiations. Pericles, the great leader of ancient Athens, counsels the American physicist about this deception—guiding him through comparisons of ancient Greek history and modern politics while analyzing the morality of making money off this deception. Pericles and Me is a thrilling and unique novel based on real-life experiences from the author’s unusual career.

At 404 pages, Pericles and Me is available online through Outskirts Press. It is also sold through Amazon and Barnes and Noble for a maximum trade discount in quantities of 10 or more and is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the fiction category.

ISBN: 978-1-9772-1097-5 Format: 6 x 9 paperback Retail: $22.95 eBook: $5.00 iPad: $9.99


About the Author: Nicholas C. Nicholas, PhD has enjoyed a full career as a physicist, analyst, problem solver, and scientific project manager. He has formulated and led operational studies including submarine trials of emerging technologies, military field trials of technologies for defense, and analyses of military requirements and technological threats to US forces. The operational exercises required him to ride submarines, surface ships, military aircraft, and at times to bivouac with soldiers in the field. Early in his career, Dr. Nicholas served as the engineering officer in the first simulated Apollo flight. He was fitted with a pressure suit and underwent extensive training, spending eight days in an Apollo capsule doing all that was required for a flight to the moon. Dr. Nicholas has spent substantial periods of time working in the Middle East, Ukraine and Western Europe. He has always gravitated toward interesting work and would change very little if he could do it all again.
