The World of the Near Future

February 25, 2024


What do your eyes reveal to you about your surroundings, and how does this perception influence you?

This is a question on which future worlds are built. And in my created world of Immortal Rising, the eyes have it. They deliver to us our character's unique perspectives, those that form the rich internal worlds that are so rife with meaning and passion. The complexities of this rich plane of existence construct the inner worlds of Riva, Trace, Edam and Commander Jaxom Troyer. 

We can't always fathom the ways in which hidden desires fuel us, and we often act upon them with unconscious ferocity. This messy intersection of human interaction is where intent meets impact and there's so much complexity to explore. And so goes the human journey... By wholeheartedly embodying ourselves, we can also wholeheartedly inhabit the world of another.

And the worlds of others? Oh, my... What a ride. Our nature, although predictive, is also capable of great transformation. It's this very spirit of possibility I strive to awaken in my stories, and in myself. If I’ve done my job, by extension, you, my reader, will feel it too. I hope so.

As we learn to harness our inner landscape, outer worlds change. Until then, those worlds reflect the minds who inhabit them. They can build a utopian dream — or an autocratic nightmare. Between those two polarities we carefully balance our wants and needs.

Within the luxury of story, we can not only inhabit these ideas but also create our worlds as we go. Come explore the vast humanscape that is a world of possibility, in all its terrifying glory. Transport yourself to places of imagination and beyond. Dream.

Reality asks nothing less of us.
