My latest pride and joy and the follow-up book to ‘Hasuga’s Garden‘. I’ve given the two books a series title and called them ‘Man Experimental’ and it is true to say that they compliment each other but also true that they each stand alone as stories in their own right.
This is a story of people – tough people whose greatest adversary is not poverty (for theirs is a plentiful land) but solitude. They are alone in the most extreme way of imagining: their little commune of eight is all that remains of mankind. No other village across the water, no far-off city or separate race: just silence and echoes. This story is not merely about adversity in many forms and the spirit that might, or might not, be enough to conquer them, but about a battle against the great unseen enemy – the human mind. And after all these weighty observations on a lighter note, can I beg you not to begin by turning to the final page, because the key to the story is, truly, the last word on that page!
If I had to attach a genre to this book, the genre would be science fiction; yet science fiction would scarcely justify the story within. I might describe it as a ‘Saga’, but again…. Anyway, after the launch offer has elapsed The world-Maker’s Child will remain on my Kindle list at $2.99.
There is a third book to be written in this series.
