This adventure takes place in 1968. The main character, John Hutton, has just graduated from college and wants to go on a camping/fishing trip, before he joins the real world. His adventure actually starts while visiting the Runestone Museum, in Alexandria, Minnesota. While looking at a Viking battle-ax, he starts having visions of a Viking Lord. Two Viking spirits appear and guide, protect and reward him during the long and sometimes arduous journey. The adventure turns into a quest and goes from Minnesota to central Ontario, Canada, to the Canadian National Natural History Museum. Different individuals join in on John’s quest and there are jokes, humor, some pathetic humor, and occasionally, some thought-provoking theories. Since the Vikings materialize on occasion, there is some time travel. There is no sex, swearing, or graphic violence.  

Although this is J.M. Cody’s first novel, he has spent his life writing technical reports as an exploration geologist. Each and every explorer, no matter what field of endeavor, has certain internal attributes, which include: optimism, creativity, and vision. He was in the Marine Corps, Peace Corps, taught science in an agricultural high school in the Australian outback, and was a wildland firefighter.

    “Quest of Creativity is a touching, tender and life-affirming response to an otherwise dreaded life event facing so many families today. He offers creative end-runs and ‘out-of-the-box’ re-framing to reject despair and to actually improve quality of life just when it seems to be slipping away. Dr. Khan embeds emerging scientific and medical insights into a warm narrative of lifelong friendships, global connections in medicine and art, love and humanity. Well done!”

  • Jahanara Begum

    "In quest of Creativity" by Sukur Khan Ph.D. is an excellent write-up. Elderly people suffering from mental or physical difficulties can learn how to stay positive and stay creative to overcome those issues and lead a productive beautiful life! A lesson for each and every one.
