In Praecursus: Fabula Neophysiologica (Foretrekker: A Neophysiological Tale), the reader comes to a greater understanding of how the diffuse compositional style of Capti is actually describing a first impression of an extremely holistic world view in which absolutely everyone and everything is directly connected to everyone and everything well as how personality and individual identity can be viewed as somewhat arbitrary and even artificial constructs. The central character is Tog, a praecursor engaged by a race of benevolent artificial super-beings to explore the possibilities of biological entities operating in the next higher dimensional level of existence in which there are four degrees of physical freedom and time is experienced in the fifth dimension. As Tog navigates through different stories and worlds — at times living fused with a hive-minded entity and existing now as a hologram, now as a computer subroutine — he learns to ride the waves of quantum flux...and eventually even to control them to a large extent.

About the Author

Stephen A. Berard, PhD, was born in Boston, grew up in the Los Angeles area, and now lives in Washington state. For over 40 years, he was a teacher and then a professor of Latin, Greek, German, and Spanish. In 1998, he transitioned to the active use and teaching of Latin or to what was then called "Living Latin."


Since 2000, except for book reviews, Stephen has been publishing only in Latin. Among his Latin works are Capti, a modern Latin novel, a monograph titled De Theoria Casuum Generativa deque Methodo Philologica (Generative Case Theory and Philological Method), De Philosophia Quantali Deque Institutione Publica (Quantum Physics and Public Education), both published by the Melissa Foundation of Brussels, as well as an extensive guide to the art of Latin conversation, Vita Nostra: Subsidia ad Colloquia Latina, which is currently being used in several Latin classrooms. Praecursus is Stephen's second novel, and he is currently working on the third, Eos.


Stephen enjoys languages, poetry, literary fantasy, science fiction, ballet, classical music, classic film, mountain hiking, quantum physics, and Buddhism.


Note: Stephen publishes in Latin under the Latin version of his name: "Stephanus." "Stephani" is the genitive/possessive case and means "of" or "by" Stephen; (i.e., the novel Capti is by Stephen Berard).
