A brilliant quantum physicist is fed up with her relationship and alters the entire spacetime continuum to make her partner appreciate her. Quantum computers all around the world become sentient and take control of humanity’s fate. An egomaniacal genius lets loose genetically engineered mosquitoes to aid humanity, but they feast upon the world instead. A group of genderless beings living beneath the surface of the Earth go on a quest to discover the nature of existence.
What do all these stories have in common? They are all part of E. S. Fein’s newest short story collection, Ascendescenscion. If you’re looking to embark on journeys spanning space, time, mind, and consciousness itself, then look no further.
“I have read the author’s other works and I have to say, E. S. Fein is really impressing me! The authors main novel ‘Points of Origin’ was a wonderful journey exploring consciousness and self, and here we once again have an exploration of existence, but the density of it all is very neatly packed into four riveting short stories. Characters experience growth, show a curiosity of the unknowable, and explore new interesting subject matter. Every story has left me lost in thought and filled with questions, which is exactly what I hope for when I read good Sci Fi. Excited to see where E. S. Fein will take us next!!!” — Amazon Review

“A hyperdimensional transhumanist space opera thriller–that’s my best attempt at categorizing this peacock of literary genres that’s worth every minute of reading. The story begins on a near-future Earth run by the New Covenant, a religion/global hegemony which has rewritten the Bible and conquered nearly every continent, and it ends somewhere beyond hyperspace,beyond causality itself, beyond…well, I don’t want to spoil the journey. All I can say is wow! E. S. Fein seamlessly blends original ideas and traditional sci-fi archetypes with Eastern philosophy and playful, yet complex ontological theories surrounding the nature of existence. All the while, the characters, which include sentient software and a hyperdimensional wizard, will leave you in a daze of never wanting to leave the strange universe E. S. Fein displaces you in. One of my favorite books of the year–I can’t wait for E. S. Fein to write more!” -Rick Wang, Wondergressive.com
“Get excited for this modern take on the transhumanist Sci-Fi Genre! The pacing of this book is wonderful; the way the author uses words is both beautiful and entrancing. Like other great transhumanist science fiction works, this novel embodies the voice of our generation and lives in the quick-wit, deep thought, and far-reaching curiosity of today’s society. If you like science fiction blended with philosophy and adventure, you have found the right author! The stories are both interesting and intricate, so hang on for a wild ride!” -Marcin Tendera, Science Fiction Blogger
“This book is hard enough to interest core sci-fi fanbase while soft enough and with enough character development to interest the more casual reader. It’s a great merger of philosophy, science, and drama that draws heavily from the eastern mystic heritage. The climax of the inter-personal drama crept up on me, so much that I didn’t even realize it was there until a short while afterwards. At it’s core, it amounts to a thought experiment on what could occur given the potentiality of our universe, even a possibility of what our reality is exactly. It had me thinking about it and wishing I could be back home to read it during the day. It’s cheap, interesting, and relatively fast paced so you could breeze through it if you so desire. Recommended” -Alexandra Wallace, review on Amazon.com
The Process is Love Ebook: BUY THE EBOOK NOW!
A collection of four short stories featuring a cast of unexpected characters, including a carnivorous storm system, a lethally lustful AI, a cosmically stressed singularity, and a dilapidated old man that may or may not have caused the end of the world. Though the sets and settings of each story differ, the unmistakable theme uniting each at their core is the demand for and the giving of love–that vague, fickle, yet infinitely powerful idea we all know but can’t ever truly explain. Incredibly, love never ceases to appear in the places and people where it seems most unlikely.
Life and death–the relationship that is you–that is the process of the universe itself. Dive into these science fictional explorations of the inward mind and outward cosmos, and when you resurface, maybe you too will agree that the process is love.
“The voice of this author that I have come to love so much is one that is well-established, yet distinct. Each of these tales is expertly crafted in in such a way that creates separation, but simultaneously allow for the anthology to feel connected. Oftentimes with short stories, anthologies feel disjointed and out of place/out of touch. In this collection, the themes, voice, and character depth keep these stories well rounded and tangible. Cannot wait for more to come from E.S. Fein!” — Amazon Review
