Mind in the Gap
The body likes continuity. It’s part of the deal. But the truth is, there are gaps everywhere. Gaps only the mind can slip through…
Across the multiverse, strangers with purple eyes are appearing on transportation routes. Bringing chaos into the paths of commuters, they navigate reality eclipses, mind-detaching psychedelics, security bots with a hunger for brainwaves, and digital synchronicity maps – all with one purpose in mind.
A multi-dimensional short story collection from the author of Fragments of Perception. Complex, dizzying, and remarkably original, Mind in the Gap will leave you pondering both our future with technology and the very nature of reality. If you loved the marvelous minds of Philip K Dick, William Gibson, Aldous Huxley and Robert Anton Wilson, then without a doubt, this is a book for you.
Readers are saying:
“Mind-bogglingly brilliant. A unique melding of quantum physics, metaphysics, philosophy, psychology, emotion and wit all in one volume.”
“Funny, terrifying and heart-breaking.”
“The closest thing to a psychedelic epiphany without a mind-altering substance.”
