Another take on the multiverse
My readers have developed an interest in some of the theories that have been described in my novel Emissary. It surprises some that the subject of multiverses has been written about in many science fiction novels of the past. For example, the classic 'Tiers series' written by Philip Jose Farmer chronicles the adventures of two men from our world transported through space-time to a cosmos with dimensions and laws different from our own. Separately and together, the two heroes contend against the Lords who rule the separate universes, of which the marvelous many-levelled world of Tiers is the center. Mythological and legendary creatures and characters abound in this series of novels that spans four decades of writing.
