Dark Eden by Lewis Sanders
Dark Eden is a collection of scifaiku, a perfect-bound book. If you’ve come looking for profound insights into the meaning of life, forget it. That’s not what scifaiku does; it’s not what it’s for. No, scifaiku is a door cracked open, a glimpse in a mirror, a shadow in a corner. In few words, scifaiku gives you a glimpse of an idea, a shadow of a nuance, a glimmer through the peephole. Add the three lines of a scifaiku together, and you come up with an image. It’s yours to ponder, mull over, think about. Perhaps you’ll smile. Perhaps you’ll cringe. Most of all, perhaps you’ll wonder.
Scifaiku is like that. So is Henry Lewis Sanders.
