About Adolphus Writer
Adolphus Writer - (b. July 20, 1969) - His mother would have named him Tranquility Base, had he been born a girl. He escaped that fate, but was plagued by the nickname "Eagle" for most of his public school days. He attended several prestigious institutes of academic learning before the advent of the Internet and holds a doctorate in Theoretical Physics.
After he graduated, Adolphus travelled to Europe, the Middle East, and Far East when those names still meant something. He picked up knowledge, experience, and an inordinate number of colds and flus while abroad. He found people to be the same the world over: motivated by their self-interest, full of blind spots, and divided mainly into idealists and pragmatists.
After arriving back in the USA, he took a job in a large defense firm applying his creative and analytical skills to pressing problems to which his mother would have objected. He married Ninja Schreiber after she resigned her commission with the German Federal Defense forces and came to the United States to be with him.
During the economic downturn spanning the first and second decades of the twenty-first century, his job was eliminated and he was terminated. He established Mandated Memoranda Publishing, LLC, as a way to support the lifestyle to which he and his family had become accustomed. He says they like to eat on a daily basis and stay debt–free.
Titles By Adolphus Writer
We no longer believe in ghosts, do we? I thought not. But we invest our time and attention in the promise of virtual reality for entertainment and, as some might wish it, our evolutionary destiny. Of course, this is only the latest manifestation of our desire to create our own heaven, on our own terms, here on earth.
A Digital Carol is Dickens’s A Christmas Carol retold with new forms and modern perspectives. No longer do we read a tale of a mean miser who, through sorrowful experiences, becomes kindly. We now face a monstrous egotist who teeters between damnation and redemption.
This speculative fiction story’s goal is not to inspire a more joyous holiday or a more generous spirit, but to question the very premise of our existence. Are we too far into the dark night of the soul for anything but drastic measures?
In the stories, you'll meet a serial killer, alien snails, a petulant eleven-year-old, a beloved astronaut, a laid-off worker, and many others. Two poems provide a transition from fiction to opinion. The short essays castigate, decry, praise, and skewer our personal, local, national, world, and cosmic conditions.
These writings are meant to engage readers in a reality that we all deny daily, whether we profess faith in Christ, are ambivalent, or are hostilely opposed to religion.
What if this world we live in is set up as a diabolical trap meant to prevent us from seeing that which is truly necessary? The anthology focuses on themes, situations, and emotions that are tragic, full of wonder, or, combined in some way, both.
We hope you'll suspend your disbelief and consider the possibility that there is a way out of the trap in which we find ourselves. And that way doesn't involve choosing between two different color pills.
