Online PR News – 09-January-2020 – New York, NY – Excelsior Publishing will be releasing Leonard Seet’s latest novel Sharper Mind Darker Dreams in November 2020. Along with the release, there will be a giveaway of his previous novel Magnolias in Paradise at Goodreads.
From the author of Magnolias in Paradise comes Sharper Mind Darker Dreams (396 pp., tpb, $24.95), a tour de force science fiction thriller of a self without a past, a tale of lost memory and elusive love in a dystopian wasteland. A man loses his memory and must travel through a bizarre world to find his identity. He navigates among layers of dreams, synthesizing them into his reality. Through prose that evokes an eerie atmosphere, Seet blends neurobiology and AI and twists the meaning of being alive, to create a journey into human consciousness and psychologically designed reality.
Sharper Mind Darker Dreams is a 150,000-word sci-fi and the first in a potential series. In prose that evokes an eerie atmosphere, the author blends neurobiology and AI and twists the meaning of being alive, to create a journey into human consciousness and psychologically designed reality. As in Tad Williams’ Otherland, a man loses his memory and must travel through a bizarre world to find his identity. But like Douglas Hall in Daniel F. Galouye's Simulacron-3, the protagonist questions whether his world is real. Instead of roaming through several layers of simulations, here the man navigates among layers of dreams, synthesizing them into his world. And like Joe Chip in Philip K. Dick's Ubik, he continues to live after having died, but instead of being suspended in “half-life,” he lives as a “half-man.” Science fiction for readers who enjoy complex characters and mesmerizing writing as much as intricate plots.
Leonard Seet is the author of the novels Meditation On Space-Time and Magnolias in Paradise. His short fiction have appeared in Duende Literary Journal, Quarterly Literary Review Singapore, and Pilcrow & Dagger. The story “Black-Naped Oriole in Hokkaido Snow” was a podcast winner at Pilcrow & Daggar and he received honorable mention in the Writers of the Future Competition for “Don't Be Afraid of the Black Rain.”
Sharper Mind Darker Dreams is available in most brick-and-mortar and online bookstores.
