e.a.r.t.h.

e.a.r.t.h.

Published by Trafford

“e.a.r.t.h. is an ambitious, encompassing, sweep of imagination. Not so much a fantasy, as a metaphor a glimpse into a possible paralled reality, in many ways not so much different to our own, an alterative present of someone else’s creation.

But the figures inhabit this landscape are recognizably ourselves, they are not creatures of science fiction or fantasy literature. What they certainly are, and what Douglas’s environment decidedly is, is refreshingly bizarre.

Douglas’s writing is immensely alive, and works perfectly in his chosen arena. One gets the feeling that the author had as much excitement writing this imaginative, metaphorical allegory as the reader will in the reading.”
