Brian Evenson writes about Immobility, a book that started out as imaginary then became reality. He also gives the synopsis for the imaginary sequel called Extinction.
When Josef Horkai is woken up from storage it’s a lifetime later, or maybe two. He wants his revenge on those who have manipulated him, but the “humans” have died out.
What’s left are lab-manufactured beings, as the so-called mules that carried him once were, and they’ve been trained to keep manufacturing themselves. But in the process they’ve lost a sense of their purpose and developed a new, and confused, mythology. A mythology that has Horkai, or someone like him, at its center.
But when the religious brothers from Granite Mountain come after what’s left, Horkai has to take sides with one of three groups: those who want to preserve humanity, those ready to surrender their humanity for good, or the befuddled lab-created who have taken him in and seem to be looking for a reason to worship him.
Extinction is a dark and incisive novel about the moral and immoral choices that lead to the extinction of the human race.
