Mind in the Gap
The body likes continuity. It’s part of the deal. But the truth is, there are gaps everywhere.Gaps only the mind can slip through…
Across the multiverse, strangers with purple eyes are appearing on transportation routes. Bringing chaos into the paths of commuters, they navigate reality eclipses, mind-detaching psychedelics, security bots with a hunger for brainwaves, and digital synchronicity maps – all with one purpose in mind.
Inventive, zany and often surreal, C.R. Dudley’s style melds the metaphysical with the technological to create dazzling architectures of thought. Mind in the Gap is an extraordinary book of diversions, circular routes and infinite possibilities. A collection of 14 unique stories and 14 alternate realities – with more to connect them than meets the eye.
“After reading the last piece, I started back at the beginning and experienced the closest thing to a psychedelic epiphany I can imagine without the help of a mind altering substance.” – Pablo Cuzco
“While this is an incredibly smart book worthy of deep dives and focused attention, it does not change the fact that this book is also pure FUN.” – Logan Ryan Smith
“Clear, elegant and gripping prose turns deep philosophical concepts about the nature of reality into a real page-turner.” – Pete
“Mind-bending, truly original science fiction.” – Kip Koelsch
“An engrossing exploration into consciousness, identity, and reality itself. A layered multiverse populated by surreal and sometimes outrageous characters, in a sweeping narrative that is skillfully woven throughout all the seemingly disconnected stories.” – Matthew Davis

“As if Kafka, Neil Gaiman, and PK Dick had their DNA mixed up during teleport and reformed on the other side as one being, firing off flash fiction as fast as synapses.” – Logan Ryan Smith
“A labyrinth of psycho-techno thrills. The work of a brilliant mind. A masterpiece of thought provoking stories.” – Pablo Cuzco
“Short, complex, philosophical and futuristic stories. Reality and dream intertwine, creating a special tone in the book, an interrogative tone of ellipsis and strangeness, but also of melancholy. An unusually intelligent book.” – Eva Garcia Fornet
“Each story is the cleverest dream you’ll ever have. This book has joined the selection of cult books I’ll never not be reading.” – Honeysuckle
