In the far future the nonhuman inhabitants of Earth mine the mythologies of the ancient past in search of meanings appropriate to their own existence; the hero must undertake an Orphean quest into the underworld of the collective unconscious, confronting its archetypes. A fabulous tour de force of the imagination. Our physical universe and earth has collided with another with fa r different earth and universe. An alien from the other universe travels through the weird and wonderful mix of the two earths. The Einstein Intersection is a story of an earth some 40, 000 years in the future. On this future earth aliens now live in place of humanity, and these aliens literally inhabit the bodies and souls of earth's long departed masters. The story tells of the problems a member of an alien race, Lo Lobey, has assimilating the mythology of earth, where his kind have settled among the leftover artifacts of humanity. The deeper tale concerns, however, the way those who are "different" must deal with the dominant cultural ideology. The tale follows Lobey's mythic quest for his lost love, Friza. In luminous and hallucinated language, it explores what myths might emerge from the detritus of the human world as those who are different try to seize history and the day.
