Now it’s time for something completely different. Hello fans of fantasy, and also fans of sci-fi and science in general (as well as philosophy). While the majority of July so far has been dedicated to a mass of sales and looking at old friends and seeing their newest works and accolades, today we’re making another new friend of…wait…Zarqnon the Embarrassed?
Of Zots and Xoodles: Theodil Creates a Universe is not your typical science fiction book. It’s an interesting new way of looking at the creation of our universe. Zarqnon is quirky with his prose, and I’ve seen a great description that sums up this fantastic book in a lovely way: It’s like the Big Bang meets Dr. Seuss. It really is like nothing I’ve ever seen before, but it’s filled with such heart and whimsy that it would be a crying shame if you didn’t get a chance to check it out.
What was before the universe? What are the pragmatic and philosophic questions that are raised by the creation of such an ambitious anomaly?
Theodil stands before a committee with nothing but zero parameter “Zots”. By skewing, aggregating, and agitation, parameters are developed including time, light, and gravity. All the while, the congregation grows increasingly very angry, double guessing, criticizing, and debating Theodil’s every step.
This is an exploratory thought experiment into various dynamics that may have taken part in the rendering of the universe. The book dives into the philosophical necessity for multiple time frames, empirical and dark materials, constants in gravity and light, and proposes a dual big bang for the origin of the universe: one to start the process, and the second to slow down the interaction so experience and matter can materialize.
“Of Zots and Xoodles” attempts to take these and other complex hypothetical factors and move them into a simplified abstract domain where the concepts can be explored in an amusing and deductive framework.
If you’re on the lookout for a quick-witted and quirky story, this is up your alley. If you’ve often wanted a hilarious, abstract way to describe the creation of our universe, Zarknon the Embarrassed has you covered. This short is so lovingly crafted, and it’s filled to the brim with clever thoughts and concepts, you really can’t go wrong. Check out Of Zots and Xoodles: Theodil Creates a Universe on Amazon today!
