Overview

A Cornucopia from Across the Dimensions

Meet a mysterious author and his entourage of shifting realities, eccentric aliens, and batty earthlings, both animal and human. Halycon Sage: world-famous and possibly Native American founder of the Post-Modernist Minimalist Pseudo-Realist Neo-Symbolist School of Literature. Sage's novels and their imitators are measured, not in pages, but in sentences. Four mini-novels are included here, and some fictional characters have taken this opportunity to vent, including a literary critic, an Iraqi-American child, a supervillain, and Sage's side-kick, a very smart horse.

You'll also encounter:

  • A Cat-Attorney's thoughts on the subject of dogagories, the Green World and the World
  • of Light, and Five Tips for Intergalactic Diplomacy

  • The real-life adventures of a confused writer stumbling around an airport and the Black
  • Foam Ball of Ultimate Significance (definitely not a microphone cover!)

  • The sparkly-blue, telepathic Squidren and the microscopically invisible but still red-and-
  • silver Nanobots.

    May the horse be with you.

    Karima Vargas Bushnell (MA, Intercultural Relations) is a character made up by Halycon Sage and introduced in The Book of Squidly Light. Or-wait, this is confusing-Is Sage a character made up by Karima in The Last Book Ever Published: The Life and Times of Halycon Sage? These books flow from Karima's patchwork quilt of religious and cultural identities, the people she has known, and some experiences with non-ordinary reality.

    About the Author

    Karima Vargas Bushnell (M.A., Intercultural Relations) has written three books at the borders of metafiction, literary fiction, and science fiction-The Last Book Ever Published, The Book of Squidly Light, and Sage's Multiverse-Miniseries-all dealing with the dimension-bending reality of mysterious mini-book author Halycon Sage. Her writing also includes Voices on the Waves: A Multicultural Comedy-Drama in Three Acts; co-authorship of Cultural Detective: Islam for Nipporica Associates; and a Master's thesis based on in-depth qualitative interviews of immigrants, refugees, and Native Americans on the subject of being bicultural. Karima herself is multicultural by birth and inclination, descended from a half German-Jewish mother and a father whose Hispanic heritage had a strong Native American component, with a bit of Europe on both sides. She has described herself as "a short part-Hispanic, Irish-fiddle-playing, Jewish-wisecracking, somewhat-Black acculturated Sufi Muslim," a small demographic to be sure. Karima has taught Intercultural Communication at Metro State University, University of St. Thomas, and Antioch's Weekend College, and for over 20 years designed and presented workshops exploring the borders between cultural realties and ways to bridge them. Indeed, borders and border-crossings are the themes that unite all her work: not physical borders, but spiritual, mental, and emotional ones, including the border between intellectual activity and spiritual discovery. Karima was a student of the late Lex Hixon, a.k.a Shaykh Nur al-Jerrahi, a scholar and spiritual explorer who walked these paths before her. Over a lifetime, she has been immersed in the study and practice of several world religions and has given workshops and written articles on Sufism, Islam, and Cross-Cultural Mysticism. A khalifa (Representative) of the Nur Ashki Jerrahi Sufi order, Karima directs the Light Upon Light Sufi Center and regularly leads the Sufi zikr ceremony of music, movement, and prayer. She has a husband, three grown children, two cats, a garden, and many visiting birds and chipmunks. She believes that the most important (and closely related) issues of our time are social justice and the saving of our beautiful and only planet.
