Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Ira has always believed himself to be a nobody; at best a screen upon which the colorful lives of others might be displayed. But one day he invents the mathematical trickery which enables him to metaphorically "See into the stone; into the places where the stone isn't." Armed with that esoteric ability, he and his lover, the exotic Rayanne who in past ages would have been burnt as a witch because of the eastern disciplines she practices, and Ira's best friend in the world, Cain, who has been psychologically transformed into the mental equivalent of a dragon, set out with two old American Indian story tellers to re-discover culturally universal ancient arts and truths. But there may be reasons why those ancient arts and truths were made to disappear and die with disuse in the past. Is humanity ready for these to re-emerge from the mists of history? Ira, this ostensible nobody, must make this decision on behalf of the entire human race."-- Publisher.
Subject: Science fiction.
Genre/Form: Novellas (Short novels), Canadian.
