On physical contact with a strange looking plant, Glynn had been chosen to serve a subatomic alien collective. Able to travel through hyperspace and the Multiverse; his antagonists can construct any atom, material and structure. Even so, they have a pressing need to enlist intelligent biology tempered with its life’s experiences to help repair their energy source – a universe-sized Black Hole!
Targeted Age Group:: 15 upwards
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Size wise, we are somewhere between what we see as larger than us and what we see as smaller. As much as there’s a vast cosmos – there’s also a vast smallness. My fascination in this notion made me wonder if an intelligent species could ever evolve into the vastness of smallness? They would probably have the ability to construct and manipulate the very atoms of which we’re all made! But this would probably also take vast quantities of energy to do so? For me, this line of thinking evolved into – The Gardener's Errand!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
As the subject matter of this book involves complex fictional thoughts and imaginings regarding the multiverse and subatomic structures; I thought that minimising the number of characters would be a good idea. My main character; Glynn, was loosely named after John Glenn – the first American to orbit the Earth, circling it three times in 1962, and inspirational person.
The plant travellers had by now fully serviced his substantially traumatised brain – achieved by adjusting a myriad of chemical, gas and hormonal levels; and removed his waste for recycling. This made him feel less fatigued and more importantly, through chemical memory augmentation, the diminishment of his most recent and horrific memories! This made him more compliant and drone-like; to follow their instructions implicitly – without limiting, too much, his own essential decision making abilities and responses. After all, if they just wanted a robotic drone – they would've made one! Oblivious to this chemical puppetry making, and perhaps naively, Glynn started to feel the positive effects of this attention. He was now a tad more reconciled to his fate and for the sake of survival, with a hint of expediency; he assumed the role of a biologically driven automaton!
