The Life of Dogs

Sine Timore Press is proud to present The Life of Dogs is a new work of speculative fiction by prize winning author, Bethany W. Pope.

There is no hunger, no war, no poverty or want. Humans live, not quite together, in a world united under the beneficial hand of unlimited consumerism. Decades ago a team of scientists created the E/MC, a device which transforms matter, specifically waste, into anything the user desires. It is a world which appears, on the surface, to be nothing but bliss, but to a careful observer there are a few key things missing, there are no more dogs. They have vanished, along with other more human creatures. All artists; poets, sculptors, musicians, painters have halted their work. All creative activity has ceased. Harrison, a journalist, is out to find out why. Along with Dick Philips, his bartender friend, he is on a journey through a seemingly utopic world, determined to fan the flame of desire in a world where nothing is needed and no want remains. These two gentlemen, each the last of their kind, are seeking out the fate of the best friends of men. The world lies all before them. Join them. Match your feet to their stride. It is the end of the world.
