Perhaps the first "real-time" novel, Black End Oh! Shun's narrative progresses at the speed events actually occur. The protagonist, Ash, projects his consciousness into his past incarnations, witnessing previous time's events with foreknowledge of their outcome. Impotent to avert disaster, Ash relives the terrors of his undoing, as life in a mansion with his twenty-six roommates degrades into otherworldly bedlam, affecting the entire planet, and beyond. Rife with philosophical musings and theoretical exposition, Black End Oh! Shun recounts Ash's journeys, from surviving being burned alive to the subsequent study of this phenomenon at a prestigious institution. Ash must battle the darkest depths of himself and the chaos unleashed by an artificial intelligence named Auto, as he travels sporadically through time, always recognizing the futility of his own efforts. Can the inevitable be avoided or altered? Is the future pre-determined? One man's journey attempts to discover these answers, or create them.
