Discover worlds you’ve never been to, or even dreamed of…

In the multiverse there are worlds that live beyond our imaginations. Worlds where magic exists, and ghost stories are real. Where artificial intelligence is sentient, and where virtual reality is more real than reality. Each story takes you on a journey, often ending up where you least expect it. Intelligent computers carry on conversations. Magic exists in our world, and ghosts appear as harbingers of things to come. What comes after the Turing test? The nextgen AI? Wearable computers? Become an armchair astronaut and discover places you’ve never dreamed of with Tales from the Multiverse.

“A beautiful and diverse collection of a masterful writer’s imagination and heart.”
“As one might expect from the compelling title, the author’s brief but imaginative stories begin in normal settings that we have likely experienced ourselves but then take a strange turn into dreams, disembodied voices, and many other otherworldly and unsettling directions that are often chilling and always thought-provoking. Just the third story into the book, I was reminded of a long-forgotten childhood night fright that made me shiver with the memory.”

“Often chilling and always thought-provoking.”
“Pilley’s works are a delight—spare, finely crafted, and penetrating (often wry) speculations about and insights into the nature of life and things and people.”
