AE: The Seven Wonders of the Universe cover

A tour-de-force alike of dramatic Science Fiction narrative and of powerfully experimental prose-poetry, Mike Johnson's AE takes the reader on a wonderful, and terrifying, tour of the seven wonders of the universe. His protagonist, the Quasorg, a man-made quasi-sapient, is gifted with full consciousness by Andromedan aliens. Can Quasorg handle such instant total enlightenment? Could we – because, deep down, AE stands as much for Alter Ego as Alien Essence. The machine-being's impossible dilemma is, ultimately, ours, in this notable fusion of narrative, idea, and experimental poetic form, now available again for the first time in 15 years.
