On the writing front:
A New Novel of Desire and Purpose
Incarnation follows a journalist, an actor, a writer, and a programmer whose dreams and desires play out together on the global stage, again and again. Each time, they find meaning as they spin on life’s mysterious wheel of fortune: samsara.
Full of historical backstory, contemporary topics, and future speculation, Incarnation is a mix of a romantic political thriller and Sliding Doors' philosophical "what if."

A Short Novel about the Power of Love
In my novel, The Black Hole of the Heart, three characters’ stories intersect around the similarity of emotional upheaval and the mysterious phenomenon of the black hole. With irresistable pull at play, each character falls and then finds a new truth about the possibilities of ending, rebirth, and the power of love.

Wally and Kali
"This book was one of the most enjoyable reads ever, for me. I lean toward the classics when it comes to fiction. Wally and Kali is really brilliantly written. There is a beautiful rhythm and flow to Peter Ferko's writing. His characters are so fully constructed; the world he creates in this book completely enveloped me and I didn't want to leave it. I couldn't wait to return to it. I can't wait to read his future books." —Commenter on Amazon.com

What do an actor, a writer, a journalist, and a computer programmer have in common? And what are they doing in Washington, D.C., in the year 2038? Or in India in 1992? Or in Brooklyn in 1939? This lively novel by Peter Ferko follows the four main characters as they traverse time and place, creating alternate futures for themselves, each other, and society. We know that the smallest action (or thought) can have huge consequences—but do we really know it? Incarnation deals with all the “big” issues—desire, work, politics, creativity, and, ultimately, life and death–but it’s threaded with huge doses of humor, compassion, and optimism. Enjoy the ride!
He ran an amazing campaign. Sanders pulled the Democratic discourse to the left, where it belongs. I hope he continues to do that, and that his supporters find ways to keep Hillary tacking that way. The easiest is by voting in more progressives in down-ticket races, so she is not as hamstrung as Obama was. A Democratic Congress plus a Democratic President is necessary now. This is why you need to get to the polls in November and vote in Democrats at all levels, including HRC. This is what Sanders’ revolution calls for next.
