Images overrun the world. Toons filled with rage and hate hunger for life. A war between simulations and humans. People besieged in a castle of dreams. A mysterious knight shifts between worlds, holding the secret that could save all. Orphaned children lead him to the whirlwind, the terrible faceless source.

"We’d come to believe that all there was in the universe was our perception of things. We were wrong.”

“All humanity would be on screens, and the living shadows would be their audience.”


"These Shadows Remain" is "an epic fantastical allegory of immense mythic proportions and symbolism, coming from a prophetic and transcendental voice. Yet at the same time, it remains so hauntingly close to home in its vision and accurate criticisms of contemporary technological culture of our generation. A life-changer and a must read for those interested in fantasy, contemporary literary fiction and deep multi-layered philosophies."
