What could the next world-wide paradigm shift look like? Space-travel? Time-travel? Contact with aliens? An internet/mind meld? Discovering the nature of reality? How wide-open could reality be? Now hold that thought.
This Soul'd World is the trial, tribulation and revelation of materialist space-time scientist, Callison Trebla, who has one of these paradigm shifts calling from the future. Upon retirement from his employer, Quanta Laboratories, Callison 'steals' an as-yet unproven time-portal and takes it home to 'go solo' on the project. And he thinks he's got away with it: until the day he makes it work.
Quanta come knocking, revealing their dark, conspiratorial and lethal intention, claiming it's their intellectual property to suppress if they want. The only route of escape for Callison becomes wherever the portal leads. He jumps, and unwittingly falls down a rabbit hole of infinite depth, exploring behind the inter-dimensional veil and in the process learning how to deal with Quanta Laboratories. He also learns how to deal with the mystery of life itself and the loss of his young son 30 years previous.
Written over 49 quick-to-read chapters, This Soul'd World is a progressive and uplifting novel that pulls the reader down parallel realities and explores all the space between. It's a cross between 'Back to the Future', 'Alice in Wonderland', 'The Matrix' and 'Sliding Doors' and readdresses the balance between the search of the world for answers, and the search of the self for questions.
Waking up is great when you're living a nightmare.
