Dust Cover
Is the monologue in your mind, your soliloquy, at odds with the social narrative you find yourself immersed in?
What are the Why’s and the How’s of the process by which right becomes wrong and bad becomes good?
How might storylines be developed for near and far future fiction that will not be invalidated or even preceded by the ever-quickening changes in society?
How might the artist, the novelist and the biographer ply his artful trade in a world buffeted by ever-changing values and norms without falling afoul of the rampant violence of the mob, the complaisant hysteria of the mind-numbed masses and the dizzying machinations of the soulless fiends who pilot this temporal machine?
The author, a reviled and hated anti-utopian novelist, amateur historian, working-class biographer and wrong-thinking reprobate, was confronted with these questions and more as he charted the science-fiction premise for the novellas Prentice Dolphin and Drinking with a Gay Giraffe, in the dying month of the metaphysic cataclysm: A. D. 2020, not the 2020th year of some “Common Era.”
