Expect a life-changing experience
[Re]Awakenings are the starting points for life-changing experiences; a new plane of existence, an alternate reality or cyber-reality. This genre-spanning anthology of new speculative fiction explores that theme with a spectrum of tales, from science fiction to fantasy to paranormal; in styles from clinically serious to joyfully silly. As you read through them all, and you must read all of them, you will discover along the way that stereo-typical distinctions between the genres within speculative fiction are often arbitrary and unhelpful. You will be taken on an emotional journey through a galaxy of sparkling fiction; you will laugh, you will cry; you will consider timeless truths and contemplate eternal questions.
All of life is within these pages, from birth to death (and in some cases beyond). In all of these stories, most of them specifically written for this anthology, the short story format has been used to great effect. If you haven’t already heard of some of these authors, you soon will as they are undoubtedly destined to become future stars in the speculative fiction firmament.
Remember, you read them here first!
“This is a fantastic collection of stories. Fantastic in both senses of the word, collectively they represent a great read and, individually, they’re strange, thought provoking and not entirely of this world." – Jon Rosenberg (author of the Hidden Academy series)
About The Author...
PR Pope has spent many years perfecting the art of avoiding being noticed. Usually to be found just outside the centre of attention, he has been present at most of the recent decades’ significant scientific breakthroughs. Now that he has decided to commit some of his tales to paper and ink (or pixels as the case may be) he is being forced to be less reclusive. He describes himself as four Roman cubits tall, one point six gigaseconds old with a mass of approximately sixty four thousand yottadaltons. He protects his privacy and is reluctant to talk about his life prior to starting to write fiction, but we have managed to extract the following information from him:
Accidentally pushed through a time-space warp as a child, PR Pope found himself in our dimension. Lucky enough to find a surrogate family in his exile, he had a fairly normal upbringing: school, university, research institute, international prizes. Drawing on his innate technological superiority over earthlings, he proceeded to ‘discover’ many of the advances that we take for granted in a modern networked society – frequently passing the credit to others to avoid arousing suspicion. In the process he made and lost a fortune, but is nevertheless still happy. He has decided now is the time to commit to print some of the tales with which he was weaned on his home planet.
The Queens of Antares: Bloodline trilogy are his first speculative fiction novels to be published. He has already been compared to both CS Lewis and CJ Cherryh.
