From the dawn of mankind…
Through America’s Civil War and into the distant future…
Two ancient gods have made romance and waged conflict…
After the Great Rapture…
Will Sky Parlor become their final battlefield?
Do we ever really die? Or, do we return to live again with those we knew before? In the future, will man and machine learn to procreate?
For generations, the population of Sky Parlor has believed that, long ago, the lands beyond the walls of their domed city were made uninhabitable during the “Great Rapture”.
When young Desmond Starr is appointed Alderman for Sky Parlor’s borough of Columbia, he is guided by a benevolent spirit during a dream’s strange vision and learns a hidden truth, exposing a lie that has persisted for centuries. As rumors of a vast deception spread among Sky Parlor’s population, the president and his governing “sustainability” council propose what appears to be the perfect but distracting solution: An inspiring journey to a mysterious and distant world!
But does this grand proposal mask an ulterior agenda? Will a rebellious young man discover his own fate is bound to not only the future of Sky Parlor, but to the survival of humanity?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Storytelling – in the form of the novel – is about much more than relating an intriguing and engaging story, it is, ultimately, about making myths. Sly Parlor takes ancient mythologies and places them in a modern context, and, in addition, asks a fundamental question: In the future, how will mankind's relationship with technology influence and effect his evolution? Will he be displaced altogether? Or, will man and machine learn to procreate and will a new species arise?
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The author imagined ancient gods in the form of humans, reincarnated and appearing throughout various and pivotal events in American history. The story also imagines how human and divine interactions – in combination with developing technologies – will unfold within the context of a fictional, but possible future-world.
Is the past, present and future but one moment; have the distant and the dead always been with us – do the joys and sorrows of forgotten lives frolic in the air like electric current waiting to be reborn?
