Is our own dimension the only possible world or are there others, stranger and more terrible than we could ever imagine?
Professor Oliver Jefferson has worked on secret research projects for US Military Intelligence for decades without ever needing to ask himself this question. But when he stumbles across the mysterious remains of highly advanced androids of unknown origin, it changes everything.
Haunted by dreams of a violent war in a world of AI beings and driven to breaking point by an over-reaching ambition to give true life to his own synthetic humanoids, Jefferson finds himself on the precipice of moral and physical disaster.
In some of our world’s great theologies, evil is said to be a sickness of the soul. But androids don’t have souls. Or do they?
Here’s what Amazon reviewers have to say:
“Aftermath may be a short story in it’s length but it beautifully sets up The Dark Elsewhere series in such an intriguing fashion. The character of Dr. Oliver Jefferson is a scientist that has been given a unique mission by the US Military: an odd explosion has left body parts of an unknown android species that is completely different than the androids Jefferson and his team are involved with. What begins as scientific curiosity becomes an obsessive project that takes over the professor’s day job but his dreams bringing the man close to a mental breakdown. The ending of this story delivers a heck of a shocking twist that you don’t see coming that will make you dive into this series. Harrowing and thought provoking read… highly recommended”.★★★★★- Kindle Reviewer
“THIS is how you ‘end’ a series if you ask me. I always enjoy the prequel AFTER to fill in blanks. We find out about Robert Birch’s origins, learn more about Dr. Jefferson, and how much alternate realities exist and can interact. I still feel a little shell shocked at it all. I always wondered how some things came to be, and now I know. This is a must read, before or after the rest of the series, that’s your choice”. ★★★★★- Kindle Reviewer
