THE CHAOS CHRONICLES - a step into the unknown
STRANGE ATTRACTORS is the second volume of an epic-length story known as THE CHAOS CHRONICLES. It will be six volumes in all, of which three so far have been written and published. The emerging science of chaos provides a theme that runs through all of the novels -- as a literal plot element, and as a metaphor for the inner journey of the protagonist, John Bandicut. And sometimes a metaphor for the author's journey, too.
The Chaos books marked a change of pace for me: following a number of long novels, I decided to try breaking up my next story into a number of shorter, faster, intertwined and yet self-contained pieces. It's been a adventure for me to write--and, at times, a struggle. But I've felt great satisfaction with the result.
John Bandicut's going through some tough and confusing times in these novels, and he doesn't always understand the forces he's up against, much less have the power to control them. And yet...he somehow manages to find his way, often with the help of unexpected friends. (That's how life feels to me at times, too.)
The first three books of THE CHAOS CHRONICLES seem to have found favor with lots of my readers; I'm going to do my level best to see that the next three do, too.
I hope you enjoy them!
