Overview

A collection of five somewhat funny, somewhat dark, occasionally raucous and, I hope, always thought-provoking science fiction stories.

In typical SF style, there's always a "what if" lurking behind the story itself. What if you were marooned in the distant past? What if humans were not the first intelligent beings on this planet to ponder the mysteries of life and death? What if your life was a lie invented by a writer in another universe? What if your entire civilization depended on the horrible death of a teenage girl? What if there was a race of semi-immortal, sexually irresistible men living among us, and living off us?

Warning to the easily offended: The last story in this collection contains some "strong" language and oblique references to various sexual acts.

Meet the Author

Michel Clasquin-Johnson is a Professor of Religious Studies at the University of South Africa and was, until recently, the entire Buddhological establishment on the continent of Africa. He lives in Pretoria, South Africa with his wife, son and two motorcycles. Michel likes to think that he practices Buddhism (in his own way) as well as writing about it. The entire Buddhist world disagrees, but is too polite to say so. In his spare time, he writes what can loosely be called science fiction. Not a lot of science involved, and a fine disregard for the rules of fiction. He also writes application software, but only for utterly obscure and/or obsolete operating systems that are never going to lead to a payday. Let's hope he hangs on to his day job.
