Genesis

Ly de Angeles. FSP/CreateSpace, $15.95 paper (238p) ISBN 978-1-4750-4042-5
Time sorcerer Paris Crow dominates this incoherent vision of a postapocalyptic world in the year 3030, when what remains of Australia harbors a desert civilization that boasts advanced technology and a semisentient computer system. The accession of Sister Blackwing to the throne coincides with a visionary warning that invasion looms from the ill-meaning World Federation of Corporations. A slew of heroic, sinister, and zany characters flesh out this flimsy allegory of grasping materialism versus ethereal spirituality. A unifying theme is Crow's acquisition of Genesis, a red leather journal. Her devoted writing in it, as befits her chronicler status, eventually suggests that the chronicler and the one who reads the chronicle are in some way linked in the cycle of experience. The reader who can derive significance from that sentiment may be able to enjoy the elevated, if empty, preaching that stifles this whimsical narrative.
