Overview

"Wisdom of the Edges" is a short novel. It is a weirdly gleeful story set in a gloom-benighted future where Earth is a dimly remembered myth, a sterilized cinder reeling out of a most distant spiral arm of its home galaxy. In this present, Humanity is no more that a collection of cultured genes amalgamated with those of other species; they are no more than walking weeds melded to components of nano-machines and synthetic life-forms. Our hero, if you can call him that, is a haploid male born of no mother. His name is Saurian LUX. Saurian is a contraband runner caught up in a conspiracy that will either destroy or rescue the galaxy in the face of a perhaps implacable force known as The Flux. Saurian’s love interest, APES2CB, possesses exceptional emotional intelligence and physical dexterity, as well as photosynthetic, glistening skin. She has several irises in her engineered eyes and can see her lover’s heart beat as well as exploding gamma ray bursts in the great heavens. She is likely doomed. The two are made for adventure and born for trouble. That trouble comes in spades from across Time and Space. Nothing is for certain. Everything is a gamble. The odds are not good, but must be reckoned in the face of The Great Mystery.
