Xavier Cockroachal Damon about this book: The book starts with "Love Is What Will Make an Immortal Die", a novella that is the follow up to the short novel "Dawn" and the story of the man. It is actually more of a prequel that shows the life of the man before the events of the first book, a life he remembers nothing of at all but is still haunted by every moment of every day. It is a life beyond what any could have expected. They are memories too painful to remember, though if he could he would relive every moment. Next is a short story "Waiting for Godotal". The premise is similar to the play Waiting for Godot where the main character is waiting for someone to show him the answers, the way, the solution to the problems of life. But, will Godotal actually arrive and save the day? The next story is "Future Uncertain, Self-sedition, No Reason, Rhyme, Trapped Within the Demise of Time". In it, John Smith, a ninety-eight year old man, is somehow transported back in time where he encounters a younger version of himself who implores him that they have a grand purpose they must fulfill and the fate of themselves and the entire world depends on it. John Smith cannot make any sense of it and, in truth, it is all so absurd that it really doesn't seem to make any sense at all. There is then a short story "The Mystery of the Missing Dead". The book ends with a short story "Sojourn Within the Shadow Night". The main character is alone in his room, wondering why it always feels so cold, trying to remember the last time he saw the sun? He racks his brain trying to figure out what is going on as events grow more peculiar. He keeps struggling to understand but can't. Is there maybe something he is missing that would explain it all? Much of the book is dark humor. The cover is a painting I did some time ago that I found fitting for the darker aspects and tone.
