Eden in Purrgatory: A Satire Summary

Eden in Purrgatory: A Satire is a satirical, yet well-researched prequel to Eden at Play: A Grown-Up Fable. It initiates a thematic trilogy that explores our relationship, for good or ill, with spiritual matters. This prequel is told from the perspectives of first-century cats; the middle book from contemporary people like ourselves; and the final entry from futuristic people who are half-robotic.

This novel includes a section on the historical aspects that are not limited to many of its characters. I also pay tribute to The Arabian Nights, Homer, and Greek mythology as well as the burgeoning Christian religion.

You don't need to be a cat lover or an atheist to enjoy Eden in Purrgatory: A Satire. That will help you more appreciate the satire, but a religious person and cat hater may well enjoy going back in time to when this thought-provoking story takes place.

The book begins with my introductory poem, continues with brief poems or haikus as if created by a narrating cat, and ends with two of my recent poems on this spiritual theme.

    Eden at Play is religious satire, but it also has spiritual depth to make listeners think about life and their faith or non-faith. Poetry is included as well as a short, poetic version of the story that has a curious child asking his parents questions about the mythological Garden of Eden and death. It's very sensitively described and life-affirming.

    Eden Forever is a slightly satirical science fiction novel that may be considered a cautionary tale if we allow our fresh water resources to dry up. When this happens in my story, only a few decades from now, we desalinate ocean water that makes us vulnerable to a superbug and it spells the end for human life as we know it. Enter biorobotics technology and the discovery of a planet the survivors can move to as biorobots.
