More About This Book

Overview

Spacebraid and Other Tales of a Dystopian Universe is a collection of one novella and seven short stories that explore the most powerful of human emotions, fears and desires in settings sometimes hostile, sometimes surreal, and always a bit off-kilter. The tales vary from the humorous to the tragic, from the idealistic yearning of the hero in Darwin to the horrifying fate of Godfrey in Heisenberg in the Macro. Spacebraid, the longest piece in the collection, is the story of a dedicated group of individuals led by a brilliant theoretical physicist in a dash through time to circumvent ecological disaster and, in so doing, to preserve the best hopes and dreams of humankind. Be forewarned that these stories are not for the faint of heart. They are meant to connect at a viscerally potent level, challenge thought and, in the end, place us in touch with our own values, hopes and fears. Take the journey. It'll be a great ride.
