REVIEWS

"I realized that I missed the existentialism that was so present in my younger years. Reading this was like a breath of fresh air for me."

"This is a really engaging story. It's not just about the march of technology into some doomed abyss or the degradation of humanity but also the inner workings of one man's mind as he finds himself wrenched from the fragmented and dysfunctional world he knew and thrust into a totally new fragmented and dysfunctional world. There's a potent psychological thread that runs through this tale and the reader simultaneously sympathizes with and despises the narrator"

"A hard look at yourself is always difficult to take gracefully and this novella brings us to that brink and then holds us there while we contemplate our choices. A quick read that leaves you contemplating for many hours afterwards"

BACK COVER

"I wish I could offer up an explanation of how I came to be here, but I can't. I fell asleep, and I woke up."

A haunting tale of what might have been. Stan wakes in a post-apocalyptic version of the world he fell asleep in the night before. Amidst crumbling buildings and lost hope, he struggles to figure out where he is and how he got there.

Left with nothing but time, he grapples with the man he is, what he's left behind, and a life he can never have.

The first in the 'Memoirs on Being' series, Time Ahead is a journey through human regret, set in a world that's been driven off a cliff by progress.

    This is a great dystopian story. The main character wakes up in the fututure - Kinda Rip Van Winkle style. While exploring his new world, he explores his own psyche. Great existential thread running thru this work.
