WHAT STARTS WITH A CRISP CLEAN PROLOGUE…

HIBERNACULUM starts out like most books, neat, clean, crisp white pages, chapters, titles, headers, all nice and normal.

And it ends like this:

It ends on notebook paper, torn from a spiral notebook, and hidden.

The book is fiction, and there is all story there, and you get to know and love the characters very well and much. But Anthony digs in. And so, why would the world come to have places where people could go to hibernate? Why would we need human hibernation? The answers range, and include vanity, conservation, rest, but also poverty, desperation, and ending up on notebook paper. Which humans get which kind of hibernation?

And that’s always the question in life, which humans get which kind of life, right?

The novel starts like a day at the spa, or MOMA, and ends on, well, not even on notebook paper, but I’m not giving it completely away. It sparks thought; it glows, and it swims in my mind, and I come back to it again, and again, and-

This damn book, this HIBERNACULUM.

And it’s here, and HERE, if you want it.

And find the humble Mr. Doyle here.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO TO SAVE THE WORLD FROM CLIMATE CHANGE? WOULD YOU HIBERNATE? IF SO, FOR HOW LONG?

So, tell me, climate-friend, how long would you go under for? Comment and let me know.

This week we delve into Yumi’s post-hibernation dream journal. That should be… interesting.

What do you imagine you would dream about during hibernation? And after?

HAVE YOU READ “THE STOIC” BY ANTHONY DOYLE?

INSTANT NOODLES DECEMBER 2022 DEVIL'S PARTY PRESS COVER

Anthony Doyle has a novel, Hibernaculum, coming out in the spring of 2023 from Out of This World Press. Anthony is a very strong and talented author and off-beat in just the way I like off-beat. He has a story in the current Instant Noodles, poetry in the current Solstice, and a story in last summer’s Instant Noodles as well.

Hibernaculum is a story about man’s quest to improve life through periodic periods of hibernation, like bears. What could be an easier way to lower your own carbon footprint? Just take a long and very restful nap. You’ll slim down too!

Check out Solstice

or “The Stoic”

or “Shark Fishing”

or “Sam Bakki,”

and get ready for Hibernaculum, all written by Anthony Doyle, an Irish guy living in Brazil.
