A Body of Fates
by Kenneth Evren

On December 31st, 1999 history changed. Precisely at midnight. David Becker was born into abuse and left home young. Rescued by Deborah Glasscock, a natural-born leader from three generations of extraordinary women, they married in 1998. With the first tick of Saturday January 1st, 2000 the course of their lives was forever altered and time-travelling consequences began to manifest. The peculiar lives of their predecessors, the epigenetics of a war-torn, alcohol-soaked ancestry, and entangled events from previous life-changing Saturdays somehow connect through cause and effect to an ominous diagnosis hanging over their now young family. Rational explanations fail leading Dave into the mirrored funhouse of consciousness, beliefs and free will. Fearing an inescapable destiny, as his family is daily ravaged, Dave encounters his own personal Fate, a being he becomes convinced is real. She torments his dreams, whispering malign revelations. It’s all beyond your control. Your family’s survival depends on your choices and the future hidden within them. You are no more than a self-aware bag of meat. Perhaps you’re hearing voices David? Witty, quirky, surreal and tender Evren retells the Greek myth of the Fates as an if only story of regret and redemption, sex and power, the old animus of science and religion, the endurance of suffering, and the resilience of family.
