Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Can you imagine what your world might be like, One Minute After? A blurring of reality that transcends rational bounds; where every frame of reference has been turned on its head, and visuals are but reflections in a hall of mirrors? Venture, then, if you dare, into this anthology of horror, science fiction and fantasy; some dark and some light, but all a challenge to your imagination. We will begin with an experiment in nano-biotechnology gone very wrong, and, if you do not perish in transit, end in a desperate alternate reality on Olde Aearth; emerging with a glimmer of hope ~ justified or not. In between, in those shadowy alcoves and interstitial chambers throughout, you might experience dragons, wizards, hurricanes, or even misadventures in space.

Haven't finished reading yet, but the style is easy to read, and immediately engaging.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Eric Diehl

A student of all things, Master of none... A questionable turn on a time-worn cliche, but fairly apt--a jack of many trades. Perhaps it began with the custom van built in the long-haired days of the early 70's--an old school bus with an engine salvaged from the junk yard. Or with the dozens of motorcycles ridden, broken, repaired and ridden again. Eric has built furniture and guitars, he's screen-printed t-shirts and created package design for bottled soap. He's thrown newspapers and he's written software for corporations large and small-- for a time working from the wandering RV he and Sue called home. He does website design and he's published motorcycle and RV travel articles. He earned a pilot's license and he built and flew a gyro-copter over the cane-fields and beaches of Florida. He's penned tunes and published Sci-Fi/Fantasy short stories and a first novel, Water Harvest, with Double Dragon Publishing September 2011. After more than three decades in south Florida, Eric and his lovely wife Susan moved to the Upstate region of South Carolina, where the nearby Appalachians beckon two-wheeled leisure. When cranky knees allow it, bicycling is a favored indulgence--more often, these days, on a recumbent. Motorcycling remains a passion, justified at least in part by instructing a course in motorcycle safety. He was likely a cat in a previous life, as there's an undeniable affinity. He looks odd, and children feel some connection when they watch him skate past on his three-wheel Trikke. The truth is, Eric is still working out what it is that he'll do--after he grows up.
