*FEATURED IN 5 OFFICIAL WATTPAD READING LISTS AND MULTIPLE AWARDS WINNER (details inside)*

An enthusiastic fetus, a rebellious hound, an android child for sale, 'rain' that brings Happiness, a game that claims to be the key to world peace... the connection?

Cavemen. Perhaps, humans have never left their Cave. Perhaps, Humanity is doomed to witness the same woes, the same horrors, not in a world of stones and bone spears, but of androids and artificial rain.

Deeply metaphorical, this collection of satirical flash fiction and prose poetry explores the immutability of human nature. Through cross-section story pairs, it draws parallels between snapshots of the Past and Present ("Cavemen" section) and of the Future ("Androids" section).
