Kiriathsepheris a village of imagination.
Kiriathsepheris a collection of poems that express the occupation of imagination for the good. The epic title poem features four children – Marcus, Matthew, Lucas, and Jeanne – who live in a future war zone, comforted only by virtual reality as an escape.
While inside their virtual world, they discover someone very real, who tells them about Kiriathsepher, the City of Stories. They enter this world and it comes flooding into the war zone, changing everything.
There is also an epic poem about a stubborn teacher from China who encounters a challenge, as well as poems set in science labs, mazes, and at weddings. Some works feature characters from the author’s previous stories, letting fans in for a treat.
