Editorial Reviews

Ken Warthog
... as with writers such as Philip K. Dick, the stories Thieme presents are delivery vehicles for ideas that will burrow into your mind and if one is fortunate, set your thoughts on their own "connect the dots" mission to destinations unknown. This will be a life-changing book for some of those who read it. Not in the sense of the self-help tomes by gurus who assure you that your investment will bring answers. If anything, Thieme assures you just the opposite.
Jean Maria Arrigo
This extraordinary book of short stories draws the reader into multiple levels of reality and multiple dimensions. The settings are mostly futuristic, as in engineered societies. But the principles of social engineering are laid bare, inducing the reader to reflect on current values, desires, and markers of progress. Liking and disliking is maybe not the right attitudinal axis for this book. Better: Are we game for these uncomfortable mental adventures in consciousness and the nature of reality?
Michael Bauer
This book is exactly how I hoped it might be: not so much Richard Thieme essays (much as I enjoy those!) in fictional format, but simply excellent stories that happen to concern reality-manipulation, the elusiveness and relativity of truth, etc., each told in a variety of voices that quite convincingly and entertainingly appear to belong, at key moments, to other people.

Meet the Author

Richard Thieme has used his skills as a writer and speaker for many years. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Richard taught literature and writing at the University of Illinois, was an Episcopal priest for sixteen years, and has since 1993 traveled the world as a professional speaker, enlightening audiences from Berlin to Brisbane, Amsterdam to Auckland, on the impacts of various technologies on human identity, spirituality/religion, and security and intelligence. He also speaks about creativity, reinventing ourselves, and biohacking, the porting of hacking skills to biotechnology. His landmark talk, "UFOlogy 101," illuminates a much-maligned domain. His pre-blog column, "Islands in the Clickstream," was distributed to thousands of subscribers in sixty countries before collection as a book by Syngress, a division of Elsevier. His work has been taught at universities in Europe, Australia, Canada, and the United States. He lives with his wife, Shirley, in Fox Point, Wisconsin and can be reached at www.thiemeworks.com.
