We all know there is more to existence than what reaches us through the five senses. We feel it in our guts, our hearts, our bones. We know there is someone, something, or somewhere else we are trying to connect to, but are there forces trying to contact us? These seven stories track the progress of some fellow seekers.
Grandfather, expelled from his native land as a young man and facing death from exposure, is rescued by beings of the sky and transported to a world of strange beasts, powerful women, violent men, and telepathic 'demons'. He meets Grenoth, a hoarder of secrets, Ilakein, a master of ancient wisdom who advises him to 'learn a way', and attempts to open his mind to forgotten realms, and sweet Lyta, a visionary and dreamer. Although he is absorbed into this new society, Grandfather is haunted by a desire to return home, so he learns divination, practices dreaming, and scours the landscape for a route back to the valley of his birth, until at last he learns the value of all things unseen, learns to let go of desire, and remembers who he is.
