Innumerable Variations: 7 Tales of Enigma by I.M. Tillerman

In this collection of short stories, strange and mysterious things seem to happen, from a South Dakota farmboy, in 1952, who wakes up one morning and discovers that he apparently is the last person on Earth, to a college professor, in 1994, who seems to be living next door to Superman, to an alien spacecraft, in 2014, supposedly appearing in the middle of the night outside of a Holiday Inn room in Des Moines.

About the Author

I.M. Tillerman was born in 1944 in South Dakota in his great-grandmother’s house. Most of his childhood was spent living on farms near Sioux Falls.

In the early 1970’s, after graduating from Augustana and Purdue, Tillerman was hired as a full-time English Instructor at a college in a suburb of Chicago; for twenty-nine years, he taught Composition and Literature there as a Professor in the English Department. He took early retirement and since then has been a full-time author.

In the early ‘60’s, while in the Marines, Tillerman married his high school sweetheart, and had a daughter. After his first wife died tragically, he remarried and had two children. He is currently unmarried and is spending his retirement writing novels.

Tillerman states that the most profound literary influences on him as a writer are the very authors he taught about in college for three decades: Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Melville, Twain, Fitzgerald, and Tennessee Williams. The two strongest literary influences on him are the poet, Emily Dickinson, and Hemingway, who wrote: “A writer should be of his great probity as a priest of God. He is either honest or not…, and after one piece of dishonest writing, he is never the same again”.
