FRONTIERS OF THE NETHERWORLD – A COLLECTION OF META-SCI-FI ART AND STORIES
This volume has two short stories and two extensive art galleries. The first story, ‘Tribe of Titans’, depicts the internal conflict within an otherwise peaceful, prehistoric tribe of tiny, furry, yet powerful beings called ‘cubsters’. Hairy Harry is less cute, clever, and lovable than the other cubsters, and his creativity and approach to things is unorthodox to say the least. But he’s tolerated and accepted by these seemingly enlightened beings. However, when their peace is threatened by a catastrophic war between titans from outer space, they soon see Harry’s true value and purpose…
The first gallery, “Cubsters and friends’, precedes the opening story. These black and white pencil illustrations depict the Cubsters, adrogynous, anthromorphic creatures, taking a compassionate approach to life’s challenges, including supernatural threats.
The 2nd story, ‘Vengeful compassion’, is about two students of spirituality, two social outcasts who are especially scarred by racism ). They struggle to learn the ultimate lesson, which is to forgive the very masses that hurt them so. But they soon understand the necessity of compassion when the hellish, corrosive, self-destructive nature of a competitive, social Darwinist world is revealed in its rawest, ugliest form.
The 2nd gallery is a collection of miscellaneous, fantasy-themed conceptual illustrations.
