A tale loosely inspired by both the contemporary astrophysicist Aurelien Barrau's work on multiverses and the turn-of-the-century author H.P. Lovecraft's mystical stories. The book entwines astrophysics and fantasy literature through fiction, deconstructing the frameworks of narration, logic, identity, space, and time. Illustrated by Andréa Marchal, after Barrau's works.
Theory of MultiDreams, written by the author and poet Jean-Philippe Cazier, is a work of fiction loosely inspired by both the contemporary astrophysicist Aurelien Barrau's work on multiverses and the turn-of-the-century author H.P. Lovecraft's mystical stories.
The book entwines astrophysics and fantasy literature through fiction, deconstructing the frameworks of narration, logic, identity, space, and time.
The story begins with the disappearance of one of its characters, out of which a kaleidoscopic narrative develops. Identities proliferate, dreams become the means for travel through space and time, and Lovecraft himself seemingly becomes one of the characters.
Theory of MultiDreams charts a troubling voyage in which science and literature converge to create a paradoxical universe that is nonetheless real—or was it just a dream?
But who said dreams weren't reality?
