Who are we when we are alone? What are ghosts if not memories of the past given voice? Are our bodies and identities warped by the emotions that pass through us? What would it mean for Humanity to have a cosmic parent? Unsolvable by logic or method, such topics are not the business of the scientist. Only the philosopher, the guru, and the fantasist are fit to map these terrains. Consider this volume a guidebook.
About the author
Born in Germany, Alex Jennings has lived in in Botswana, Suriname, Tunisia, and the United States. He draws on his experience in these lands as he investigates the darker corners of existence through science fiction, urban fantasy, and even comic-book-style superheroes. His fiction is peopled by fallen angels, clinically depressed gods, mechanically inclined ghosts, and stuffed toys questing after the meaning of existence. Take a look inside Here I Come and Other Stories and let Alex Jennings guide you through alien geographies rendered unsettlingly familiar.
