After decades of struggling, the broken last of humanity barely escapes an inexplicable cataclysmic threat and wanders in the darkness of space for blind hope and a desolate future. They eventually find themselves on a journey for ancient wisdom, long forgotten civilizations and a mythical planet called Earth, yet the cycle of endless oppression, destruction and fear is in pursuit. And in the end, perhaps there remains nothing, not time, not memories, not history, not even a planet.

Takatsu's approach on the well traversed theme is a haunting literary and deeply metaphysical experience where the interstellar novel's grim and traumatized characters search the cosmos for answers to the greater age old questions on spirituality, the human condition, mortality, history, myth, esoteric traditions, transcendence, higher dimensions and our place in the stars.

[Interstellar Sci-fi, Literary, Mysticism]


This is thy hour O Soul, thy free flight into the wordless,
Away from books, away from art, the day erased, the lesson done,
Thee fully forth emerging, silent, gazing, pondering the themes thou lovest best.
Night, sleep, death and the stars.
- Walt Whitman

From the Watty's 2014 award-winning author of dystopian literary novel, Espresso Love.

This is quite inspirational, really. It's astounding to see how much more a person can grow even after having accomplished something most would consider a success. And as someone who binge-read Espresso Love within a few days, I'm excited to see how your writing has evolved.

You sound so widely learned! I cannot even begin to comprehend how intricately you weaved these elements back in Espresso Love, and I'm excited to see how you'd deal with these topics in this new book. :)

It's interesting, as I'm reading Secondhand Memories and Espresso Love, maybe this one, as it is SciFi, is going to be awesome.
                              I'll read this first!

Is, is, is this that one CPN (I think it was, but now transformed into full prose) that I kept bugging you about, to update and finish writing it? *^*
