Mastodon of Bayana is an exciting blend of science fiction, fantasy and romance. It is the story of a conceited dictatorial ruler who - unlike his namesake Mastodon, the species of extinct elephants - is not quite extinct today. His untenable governance draws civil unrest and he is overthrown in a bloody guerrilla insurgence. Later he commits suicide but death rejects him and he is committed to the womb of time. In the surreal panorama Mastodon undergoes some fantastic experiences while he is being prepared for his final trial in several fantastic and humorous incidents. The author takes a fresh look at some dilemmas of life caused by both human nature and the conditions of existence. In the end it becomes clear that it is human nature itself that is on trial and there is a proposed panel of five judges. A last his trial, which was attended by many of his former subjects, was as dramatic as the final sentence was astonishing.
